Flash Fic

Seth sat on the sofa next to Domenico, slowly falling asleep with his face buried in Dom’s long, fragrant hair.

“What’s this popcorn?” Mark asked from the armchair in front of the TV, crunching loudly.

“Cinnamon and toffee,” Dom said, petting Seth’s arm in a languid motion.

“I thought you didn’t like popcorn.” Seth yawned and cuddled up closer.

“I don’t, but if he’s gonna eat it, he might at least have a good quality product.”

Domenico’s chest sank so rapidly Seth’s head slipped to Dom’s arm, and he looked up, somewhat confused, but the hand gently petting his neck took him right back to bliss. He loved listening to Domenico’s voice. It was as smooth as his appearance.

Mark chuckled. “Quality product,” he mocked.

“You find this funny?” Dom asked.

“It’s true,” Seth purred, scratching Dom’s stomach. “Only quality for Domenico Acerbi.”

Mark shrugged, stuffing his face with more popcorn. “Take cheese for example. It’s cheese. Doesn’t really get much better than that.”

A low growl left Domenico’s chest. “Oh, please. I saw you eat that liquid pseudo-cheese that comes in a can. Just wait until we take you back home and you try real food.”

“Even the air is better quality.” Seth sighed at the memory and kissed Dom’s knuckles. When he looked up, Domenico’s amber gaze was bathing him in attention.

“And the men. I only take the best of what the world offers me.”

Mark groaned and Seth wanted to reprimand him for chewing so loudly. “I’m guessing that’s Seth then. The best. In the world.” Mark snorted.

“Oh, shut it,” Seth threw a shoe at Mark but missed.

Domenico nuzzled Seth’s nose with a proud smile. “Precisely. Ripened in the Sicilian sun, fed nutritious food until he grew tall and muscular. He’d been waiting for me to pluck him.”

Seth raised his eyebrows, unsure if he should feel complimented or offended.

“So I have to go to Sicily to get a quality man like him?” Mark asked, but Seth heard the mockery in his tone.

Dom kissed Seth’s temple. “There’s only one of him, and he’s taken.”

Mark groaned. “Cheese is cheese, and a dick’s a dick.”

Domenico Acerbi. The Villani Family’s best assassin. Ruthless. Vicious. With no patience for weakness.

Seth Villani. The Don’s son. Clueless. Stubborn. In dire need of someone to keep him in line.

Domenico Acerbi grew up ready to give his life for the Family. Ready to follow orders and exceed expectations. A proud man of honor.

The last thing he wants to deal with is training the Don’s son for his future role within the organization. Lazy, annoying, spoiled, and as hot as a Sicilian summer, Seth Villani is no mafia material. But a man who could never become a threat might just be what Domenico needs.

Seth Villani wants nothing to do with the mafia. Unfortunately, he doesn’t get a say when he’s pulled back into the fold. Thrown into a den of serpents otherwise known as the Villani Family, Seth has to find a way to navigate the maze of lies. But when Domenico Acerbi, the most vicious snake of them all, sinks his fangs into Seth, letting go becomes impossible.

If Seth is doomed to follow in his father’s footsteps, he might as well enjoy himself with the most intoxicating man he’s ever met. Maybe he can even fool himself into believing that Domenico isn’t a handsome sociopath who kills for a living.

“We are two halves of the same rotten apple.”

Deep in the Amazonian jungle, there is a mansion with a rose garden and a hen house where juicy tomatoes are the perfect shade of red, and marble countertops glisten.

Inside, where even the shadows don’t reach, something is rotting, and the perfect facade can only hold the stench for so long.

Domenico promised his husband that he would keep him safe, keep him away from the bloodshed and the brutal world of cartel violence. But when a guest arrives to help retrieve a stolen transport of guns, something sinister sneaks into his home, something more dangerous than his enemies. Or has it been there all along, and he just hasn’t noticed?

Seth’s life is what others dream of. Endless leisure time filled with cocktails, a kitchen stocked with anything he wishes for, and a private pool in the sunshine. What’s missing is the man he shares it with, the man he fell in love with. If being cut off from the mafia business was what he wanted, then why is it so painfully lonely in paradise?

Desperate to be the supportive husband Domenico needs, Seth buries his rage, his violent urges, and the anger that simmers inside of him. But he can only hide in plain sight for so long, and when a guest invites him to play with fire, one misstep, one wrong move, could burn their safe haven to the ground.

POSSIBLE SPOILERS

Themes: mafia, cartel, assassin, organized crime, family ties, domestic violence, inequality, betrayal, revenge.

 Excerpt
 

Domenico could get drunk on the taste of the shivering body underneath him. Men had given into him before, but none like Seth. None were a challenge to be conquered again and again. Seth’s reflection in the water had its eyes closed, lips open, but noticing them only reminded Domenico of Diego’s audacity to so much as look at Seth in a vulgar manner. He had no right. No one else had that right.

The water cast blue lights on Seth’s face, reaching out to caress him with translucent fingers. Hand squeezed in the hair at the back of Seth’s head, Domenico pushed in so hard Seth fell flat on the tiles, dipping his nose in the water.

“Deep breath,” he whispered into the warm ear.

Seth glanced back at him, red-faced and panting, but understanding finally sank in and he did as told. It was a good thing that Seth was willing to butt heads, because seeing him then comply only made Domenico thrust into that greedy hole harder.

Danger was an aphrodisiac to Seth. He’d proven that much when they’d first fucked on Toro’s property, in the wine cellar below the kitchen floor where there were no cameras to spy on them. It was back then that Domenico tightened his hand around Seth’s throat for pleasure for the first time. T

wo years on, Dom was still more than eager to give his husband exactly what he needed. The loss of breath. The adrenaline, the rush of blood coming back once arteries were released made Seth’s orgasms earth-crushing.

So good: Violent, dark, passionate, erotic, dangerous

Guns n' Boys: Bloodbath (Book 6) (gay dark mafia romance)Guns n’ Boys: Bloodbath (Book 6) by K.A. Merikan

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I keep running out of things to say about this series of books from K A Merikan but they are simply outstanding.

Seth and Dom are Butch & Sundance, Bonnie & Clyde, Harley Quinn & The Joker, all rolled into two deliciously dark and brutal Italian Mafioso packages.

There’s no glamour here, it’s harsh and vicious and cruel and unrepentant and it’s insanely erotic with heat levels approaching molten lava.

The boys world just keeps on getting more complicated and more twisted and I know Kat and Agnes have said they expect there to be 10 books in this series so I have to wonder just what else dangers and dramas they’re going to be put through.

And who is Diego, what’s Dana’s ultimate motivation, what’s Nero’s game and when’s Miguel finally gonna crack?! I cannot wait to find out.

Another deeply delicious tale of death and destruction bound in love

Chokehold (Guns n' Boys, #5)Chokehold by K.A. Merikan

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Oh these guys! Seth and Domenico are passion and pain, desire and danger, anger and arousal, love and longing.

There are two brutally perfect scenes in this book which show that, in spite of everything they’ve been through, and done to each other, they have a love which is as epic as Antony and Cleopatra, Romeo and Juliet, Rhett and Scarlett. Great lovers all, bound together in eternity.

Let’s hope this love story has more of an ending like Westley and Buttercup though 😉

Worth every one of those five stars

Guns n' Boys: Box Set - Books 1-3 + Guns n' Boys: Paris + FREE Guns n’ Boys: Box Set – Books 1-3 + Guns n’ Boys: Paris + FREE “Blood&Marriage by K.A. Merikan

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What a ride, my God this box set is an explosive mix of murderous Mafiosi and gorgeously dangerous guys. With all sorts of taboos, death, mayhem and illegal dealings, the three novels and two short stories in this collection bring to life Seth and his reluctant bodyguard Domenico almost in beautiful 3D.

Their relationship jumps off the page, brutal and passionate, tortured and calm, forgiving and reckless, emotional and ice-cold, these two Italian men scorch their way through one drama and crisis to another, bringing along a whole host of interesting side kicks and characters.

It’s not all dark though, there are plenty of humorous moments, plenty of heart warming still and quiet moments, plenty of heart breaking moments.

The two short stories brilliantly flesh out the first three novels and while I don’t usually like M/F appearing in the middle of an M/M series, in this case Lucrezia and Santo’s romance worked perfectly as insight into what was happening on the other side of Seth and Dom’s daring escape.

Sex is all ends up epic but the true joy is in the crafting of two wondrous men who are both vicious at times, both a little bit broken, both a little bit trapped into their Family roles but who, together, find the strength to try and break free.
