Gun Moll (Gun Moll #1) by Bethany-Kris& Erin Ashley Tanner

James “Mac” Maccari’s career in the mafia is at a standstill. As the best solider in his Capo’s crew, all he wants is to be noticed enough to get Made in the Pivetti Crime Family. But instead, his Capo’s interests seem more focused on keeping his solider hidden from the boss, and every other Made man he can. Seemingly stuck right where he is with no chance of going up, Mac doesn’t know what will finally get him the attention he needs to earn his button.

Until she shows up and all eyes are on them …

Melina Morgan survives—that’s just what she does. She’s never been able to depend on anyone but herself to keep her safe and get things done. When a chance encounter puts her in a bad situation with the cops and the mafia, Melina has no choice but to put her faith in the hands of a man that not only infuriates her with his cocky arrogance, but catches her interest, too. Playing pretend in a fake relationship with Mac doesn’t seem all that terrible, until pretend turns real and bullets start to fly.

A man is nothing without his woman …

When the attention on Mac and Melina turns from bad to worse, and someone in the Pivetti Crime Family decides the couple needs to go, they know they’re fighting an uphill battle alone. But making it to the end alive means Mac could get what he’s always wanted, and Melina might find what she didn’t even know she needed.

Together, they’ll make waves the mafia has no choice but to notice …

3.5 out of 5 stars

"She's a mobster's girl, the unsuspecting lady with a gun hidden under her coat, and the only thing a man can trust to follow through. That, doll, is a gun moll." 

Gun moll is unique because Mac isn't a 'made' man. As one of the best soldiers in la famiglia, he works hard to earn his button. Mac is strong, confident, and a sometimes a bit arrogant. He also talks a lot. Always trying to explain to Melina what he thinks she's thinking.

Melina is a high class escort with a big attitude. She has no family. She has no close friends. So when Mac enters her life, she's scared about all the new feelings in her heart. She's also very insecure about herself.

Although I found the story a bit repetitive, there were some good steamy and erotic moments. I'm definitely interested in where the story will go.
