Publisher's Summary

The first book in a seductive new series from number-one Amazon best-selling author Scott Hildreth.
Tripp
Once, I took down terrorists on the front lines as a marine.
Now I'm in the business of bad.
I've sold guns to people others might not approve of.
I've eliminated the criminals, the lowlifes, and the thugs who've tread on my turf.
And I've looked the Sicilian Mafia boss in the eye and told him to f--k off.
No one tells me no - unless it's their last word.
I don't just act the part of bad. I live it.
Then she stumbles into my life. I try to stay away from her. Try focusing on moving my merchandise. But one smile from Terra is like a shot to the heart.
She's mine now. And no one threatens what's mine.
Terra
I've seen a lot of terrible things in my life.
I grew up around lies and deception, and I ran away from all of them.
Until I met him.
I knew he was corrupt. I knew he was dangerous.
I should have stayed away, but my attraction to him, my need for him, overrode my logic.
Now I love him.
If he finds out who I am, we're done, and I'll be nothing.
I never wanted to be the Mafia princess they try to make me, but mia familia has other plans. And what mia familia wants...it gets.
Only Michael Tripp can save me.
Book one of the Mafia Made series.

Okay I don’t care if your man or women and your write smut, romance, erotica whatever. When you can write a female character as strong as this one your freaking ace’s in my book. Oh and this book is Hot as … Yeah you know what I was going to say.

When I first saw this was coming out I was hesitant because Mafia, I always find the women in those books are a bit ditzy.

But I am here to tell you, not only is Terra not ditzy she was probably my favorite leading women in a book in a long time.

I loved how forward Michael was, he didn’t throw any punches what you saw you got well if he wanted you to know. Also got to love what he stood for. He is like the good guy but not all at the same time.

These two together make a great couple and like they would both be fine on their own. But until the meet and you know that now they can’t be with anyone else but each other kind of love. The swoony kind of love.

You know it’s not going to be all sunshine and roses and this book has its ups and downs but I loved how it was steady I actually was able to listen straight through while doing house stuff. And actually yelled NOOOO when it ended.. Now the wait for book 2 grrr.

Sometimes there is a scene that sticks with me and it might be a weird scene to hung up on but the scene with Michael and the 19 year old kid in the coffee shop, I don’t know something about the kid and him and just there little bit of convo makes me want to know more about that kid.

The narration wow great job, I am no stranger to Jeremey’s audios but Elizabeth was new for me and I can tell you I will be on the lookout for more from them.

*All my Reviews are 100% honest and my own.*

TOO SWEET FOR A MAFIA STORY

I'm on the fence about returning this one. I think a Mafia story should be dark(ish), gritty, suspenseful, action packed, and of course big bad delicious alpha males. This book starts out this way but very quickly turns way too sweet.

Example: Michael Tripp the alpha male only has sex with a woman that is relationship material (no man whoring for him) and then he waits 30 days just to be sure. REALLY!! He has morals and a good nature but he also has an illegal gun running business, hum. IMO his conflict with the Mafia and actions taken are weak. I will mention his love interest is Terra, the Mafia boss' daughter.

This series is a continuation of Michael and Terra's story. So there is a 'to be continued' at the end.

I think this would be a good book for people who lean more towards sweet and sassy than dark and gritty.

Jeremy York and Elizabeth Hart were a big reason why I purchased this book without any previous reviews. They gave a great performance.

Is it worth your credit? You will need to decide.
