Trust on one and they'll...more

I knew I'm gonna love whatever Bethany-Kris had in store for me. But when she teamed up with Erin Tanner and came out with Gun Moll, it totally blew my expectation out of proportion. Mac and Melina have just turned into one of my favorite mafia couple, because they are both totally badass together!

Book 1 of 2.
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 ...more
I struggled initially to get into this book and it actually took me three attempts before I got going. I suspect it was me I because once I got past the first couple of chapters there was just no stopping me.
The book opens with Melina Morgan standing over her father's casket, he was the only family she had and now he's gone she really is completely alone in the world.
Mac has family, his own and the Pivetti Crime Family. He's a soldier probably the best they've got but he desperately wants to get ...more
Gun Moll is primarily about James "Mac" Maccari, a soldier of the Pivetti Crime Family. He's overworked, underpaid, and unappreciated. He meets Melina, an escort that doesn't have sex for money. Together, they get Mac noticed (through some unorthodox means) ...more
It’s a man’s world. Truer words were never spoken than when talking about La Cosa Nostra. Women are merely pawns or commodities to be used as bargaining chips or toys and then discarded as one pleases.
Melina Morgan is discounted because she’s the fairer sex. But that would be someone’s first mistake, because she’s a force and not to be messed with. She’s a real Gun Moll.
“She’s the one that no one ever expects. She’s the pretty face in the corner that everyone overlooks. She smiles ...more
They met at the right place but at the wrong time. Clean hands & dirty tricks, streets that are paved in gold normally were stained in blood it's destiny vs the mafia so get those guns ready, it's time to aim, shoot and fire
Malina Morgan at age 25 had one thing clear and that was real life was a bitch , the hands that protected her were taken away to fast and since that moment the ice queen was born. Malina worked hard to be the Alpha in a man's world ...more
Here comes my confession.
You know that I love your books. I love ''Filthy Marcellos'', ''The Chicago War'' and ''The Russian Guns''. I just can't choose my favourite one from them. They are all special and one of the best mafios books ever. And then comes ''Gun Moll''. And I can't believe what I am reading. I though that your other series were amazing, but this is ten ...more
Okay. Now that I got that off my chest...
This was excellent. Beyond excellent, really. The first book in a 3 book series, Mac and Melina's story is told in dual pov. Mac is one of the best soldier's in his Capo's crew and working toward becoming a Made Man. That is if his Capo allows him to be noticed which doesn't seem to be happening. Mac quietly does his job, works his way out from the shadows cast by his family and The Family, waiting for his time. Then he ...more
IT'S LIVE Amazon
What an emotional roller coaster. I was constantly on the edge while reading the last 30% of the book biting my nails and praying for them. Imagine my surprise when I came to the page and my kindle refused to go to the next one. The first book was over. I literally wanted to throw my kindle at the wall.
"She smiles and bats her lashes, but when you turn your back, she'll cut your fucking heart out from behind. She's dangerous. She's amazing. 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."

I don't like them because most writers gloss over the ugly, violent side of the life. They don't show the victims of the business - the addicts, the prostitutes, the little people paying money to extortioners. I especially hate how writers make the heroines of these books out to be these sweet, virginal ingenues who have no clue how the hero makes his money, nor do they seem inclined to ask. Even when bullets are flying and bodies popping up all over the place, ...more
An innocent encounter with a beautiful woman.
Melina Morgan is a twenty-five year-old public relations extraordinaire/ courtesan who is grieving the loss of a cherished loved one at the opening of this story. With no true friends, and even less of a connection with her remaining family members, she feels the rawness and the grit of life attempting to strangle her soul. While fighting this harsh bite of reality, she has a chance encounter with an intriguing ...more
First, I'll address all that is right in a man, aka Mac.
He was dominant, sexy, ambitious, but most importantly, a gentleman who knew how to treat a lady. His mama raised him right. He said how he felt whether with Melina or the Family.
Now to Melina. I absolutely loved her.
She ain't take no s**t. She was witty and tough. But I loved that she let herself be ...more
"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 ...more
I love reading mafia books. They just give a certain hype. They also remind me of when I used to ...more
That said, this was pretty good. I typically don't read mafia books but I was attracted to this one because the title. I liked the idea of the heroine not being some naif who is swept off her feet by money and male charisma. There is a little bit of that, but Melina is that ...more
I was completely enthralled by the rags-to-riches story of Mac & Melina, don't get me wrong I love reading about mafia princes & principessas but it was so refreshing to have a different style mafia story from Bethany-Kris.
I also love a bad ass heroine, which Melina completely was!! She was made for the lifestyle and completely held her own which I love to read about and was a nice switch up from the usual mafia principessas who are there to look pretty and play ...more
Oh My GAWD! This book is absolutely FABULOUS!! I love Mac and Melina!
This story is not the typical Mafia book. In most Mafia stories the male character is "made", already high on the food chain. Mac is a soldier. It's totally awesome to read about how these men scrimp and scratch to pay their dues to their Capo. It's totally refreshing to understand how the process of becoming made from the ground up.
Mac and Melina meet under unusual circumstances and the timing sucks. But who said love is fair? ...more
*Thank you to the authors and IndieSage for a copy of this in exchange for an honest review*
Great twists and turns that have me itching to move straight on to book 2.
Woah what a roller coaster. My stomach has gone up and down throughout.
Melina is the woman. Love her she is one tough cookie who is balls to the wall for her man!
Mac is one hot man! Sexy as hell! And tough as nails.
Lots of action and hot loving!
On to the next
Gun Moll is about Mac and Melina from New York so this one is a story based on the New York Cosa Nostra. Two individuals from completely opposite sides are entangled in a string of complications that leads to a scorching romance between Mac and Melina who is affectionately called doll by Mac. While I like the writing of Bethany Kris I wasn't surprised by the difference in ...more
"What is a gun moll, anyway?" she asked.
"She's one hell of a woman," Mac finally settles on saying.
"Is that it?"
Not even close.
"She's the one that no one ever expects. She's the pretty face in the corner that everyone overlooks. She smiles and bats her lashes, but when you turn your back, she'll cut your f*cking heart out from behind. She's dangerous. She's amazing. She's a mobster's girl, the unsuspecting lady with a gun hidden under her coat, and the only thing a man ...more
“A man is nothing without his woman."
I’ve gone gun moll with its title. Yes, I am done knowing that I’ll be reading one kickass FC alongside with one strong MC next in line leader of the tribe of the mafia world. The Story is centered to the premise that “A man is nothing without his woman.” Melina Morgan has proven to herself and people around her that she is one to be noticed always not only with her alluring beauty but with her ...more

“A good man always takes care of his girl,” Mac said quietly.
Melina’s eyes opened again at those words. “But I’m not really your girl, Mac.”
“So? I should still take care of you.”
“What if I was?”
“My girl?” Mac asked.
Mac cocked a brow, eyeing Melina as she grabbed a loofa off the ledge of the tub and ...more
