“I don’t even know who I am anymore.”
“All you need to know is that you’re mine.”
Seth would follow Domenico to the depths of hell. He promised to always be at Domenico’s side. But hell becomes all too real when they infiltrate the world of Toro - a notoriously security-obsessed arms dealer, who has eyes and ears everywhere.
Seth becomes unable to steal even a moment of intimacy with Domenico, and the tension grinds them down each day. Beyond the deceptive paradise of Toro’s villa, violence is an everyday occurrence, and the swimming pool could just as well be filled with blood. To survive, Seth has to become the man Domenico needs him to be, but in the process, he might lose who he truly is.
With Seth trained up, and Mark as backup, victory is so close Domenico can taste it. They just need to prove themselves to Toro as valuable assets. With each day though, Seth seems to be drifting away from Domenico, hidden behind a mask of cruelty and indifference. It is exactly what Domenico asked of him, so why is it so difficult to see Seth become his mirror image?

WARNING: Adult content. If you are easily offended, this book is not for you.
‘Guns n’ Boys’ is a gritty story of extreme violence, offensive language, abuse, and morally ambiguous protagonists. Behind the morbid facade, there is a splash of inappropriate dark humor, and a love story that will crawl under your skin.
Is good to be back with Dom and Seth, my danger-philic, gun-totting, fearless m/m couple. They have yet another crazy wild ride in the midst of Colombia infiltrating a crime lord name, Toro with the help of their growing family, Mark, Miguel and Dana.
The book is titled Bloodbath, but every book in the series is full of gore anyway, so from action POV it isn't more gruesome or violent compare to the previous books. I can really see Seth growing more and more bold and willing to get the job done despite his nurturing nature. However, underneath his bravado, we can still see his struggles and I'm totally with him when he make his point. Why can't they just flee and start fresh somewhere else? I feel like shaking Dom and make him see reason. But I guess, if they were to just gallop off to the sunset, then there wouldn't be more books for them.
I love the teenage Mark and I love the fact that Dom and Seth adored him like their own son. But Mark really deserve a severe spanking for the things he did here. I feel like castrating him and make him a eunuch. Gah! Teenage hormones really can't be trusted. Thank goodness by the end he sorta redeemed himself. I hope after this fiasco, he learn his lesson and finally grow up.
Talking about Dom's ever growing clan, Dana and Miguel and possible Nero? I would die for a story for each of them, especially Miguel and Nero. I didn't paid much attention to the sulky Miguel, but Nero is simply enigmatic. I would like to know more about him. And although I'm not a big fan of Dana, it does seems like she gonna be a permanent fixture of Team Dom. I just hope she won't steal his virtue while he's unaware.
It been a six book journey and now Dom and Seth are officially husband and ... husband. One thing that didn't change is their passionate love affair that transcend reason and morale. I don't care that they are bad people doing bad things or that they have nasty fight with each other on the occasion, I just knew they are gonna love each other to death and back and remain faithful no matter what happens.
The post-credit was a nice touch, but it just pique my interest and my worries. Oh my God! Seth, becareful!! Why does he always attract the attention of creepy stalkers?
K. A. Merikan is the pen name for Kat and Agnes Merikan, a team of writers, who are taken for sisters with surprising regularity. Kat’s the mean sergeant and survival specialist of the duo, never hesitating to kick Agnes’s ass when she’s slacking off. Her memory works like an easy-access catalogue, which allows her to keep up with both book details and social media. Also works as the emergency GPS. Agnes is the Merikan nitpicker, usually found busy with formatting and research. Her attention tends to be scattered, and despite pushing thirty, she needs to apply makeup to buy alcohol. Self-proclaimed queen of the roads.
They love the weird and wonderful, stepping out of the box, and bending stereotypes both in life and books. When you pick up a Merikan book, there’s one thing you can be sure of – it will be full of surprises.
