Publication Date: November 14, 2016 
Genres: Adult, Mafia Romance, Interracial Romance, Erotic Romance



As a newly Made Capo in the Pivetti Crime Family, all eyes are on James “Mac” Maccari, and not for a particularly good reason. The way to his new position in the family was paved with blood, and that left some all too suspicious of where—or who—he might be going after next. Mac isn’t interested in playing to the politics of other Made men or Cosa Nostra. His only goal is to keep his promise and be waiting for his gun moll when she’s finally released from prison. 

Until all hell breaks loose … again. Fresh off her six month sentence, Melina Morgan is all too ready to get back to life, and Mac. The mafia life has been one learning curve after another, but with Mac at her side, there’s nothing that they can throw at her that she can’t handle. Even with a ring on her finger, and a new last name to go with it, Melina won’t be domesticated. But with a man like Mac, he wasn’t exactly looking for that kind of a woman, anyway. Sometimes, wedding bells bring bloodstains … When directed attacks start to happen, taking the lives of some of the highest Made men in the Pivetti family, distrust and unrest begins to breed throughout the ranks. Someone is making a move on the boss’s seat, and it seems far too easy to put the blame at Mac’s feet when every single attack is somehow connected to him. All over again, Mac and Melina find they’re fighting an uphill battle to keep each other safe and survive. But this time, they might not be fighting alone … 





“Relax, doll. You trust me, don’t you?”

Melina rolled her eyes. “Why would you even ask me a stupid question like that? Of course I do. I married you didn’t I?”

“Yeah. I seem to remember a lot of begging and pleading on my part.”

Melina thumped her husband on the forehead. “I see someone’s got jokes today.”

“Maybe just a few,” Mac said.

He turned off one of the main highways and Melina glanced at their surroundings. She had no idea where they were.

“I don’t recognize any of these landmarks.”

“I wouldn’t expect you to.”

She waited for him to say more and when he didn’t she sighed.

“Okay. I’ll play along, but this had better be an awesome surprise for all the cloak and dagger you have going on.”

“I think it’s really going to be special to you. At least, that’s what I’m hoping for.”

Melina smiled at his soft tone. “Anything you do is special, Mac. It’s one of the main reasons I married you.”

“And what are the others?”

Melina tapped her finger on her chin, mischief already creeping into her mind.

“Your exquisite cock. Oh and you’re not bad to look at either.”

Mac made a cutting motion across his chest. “You wound me, doll. I haven’t heard you mention a word about my stellar personality.”

“You know that’s hit or miss sometimes.”

When Mac glared at her Melina laughed, before she leaned toward him and kissed his cheek.

“You know I’m just playing. There is so much about you that I’m grateful for, especially your patience.”

Mac nodded. “Yeah. Who else could put up with you?”

Melina’s mouth dropped as her husband laughed.

My Review 

Gangster Moll is the continuation and second book in the Gun Moll trilogy. After the cliff hanger ending of book 1, I was so excited to see this land on my Kindle. Picking up right where Gun Moll ended, Mac and Melina prove that through time and space, true love shines even in the dark and dirty world of the Mafia. 

Melina is finishing up her jail sentence and has kept her mouth shut. Not for the sake of the Mafia but for Mac. Mac has done everything he can these last few months to get to a point that as soon as Melina is released, he can prove how much he loves and appreciates her even if he hasn't been able to show it throughout this ordeal. Both are a bit apprehensive of the future but seeing each other for the first time after so long apart has proven their love is strong and lasting. Now if only they could celebrate their HEA without anymore Mafia-made mishaps. But stark reminders of the life they live keep rearing their ugly heads. As a Made Man, Mac has to not only prove his loyalty to The Family, but he has to protect his own family from the violence and bloodshed that is never far away.

Bethany-Kris is one of my go to Mafia authors and now Erin Ashley Turner has made that list. This series is addicting. Mac and Melina are captivating and their love story is beautiful in a world that doesn't show beauty well. This story was sexy and intense and once I started I couldn't put it down. While the ending wasn't as surprising as book 1, I am anxiously awaiting the next in the series as these characters are some of my favorite.

Amazon (#FREE with #KindleUnlimited):


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 …
