The first book in a seductive new series from Scott Hildreth, the #1 Amazon bestselling author of BRAWLER and HARD CORPS.
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 looked the Sicilian Mafia boss in the eye and told him to f*** off.
No one tells me no, unless it's their last word.
I didn't just act the part of bad—I lived it. Then she stumbled into my life.
I tried to stay away from her. Tried focusing on moving my merchandise. But one smile from Terra was like a shot to the heart.
She's mine now. And no one threatens what's mine.
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 needfor 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 tried to make me, but mia familia had other plans. And what mia familia wants…it gets.
Only Michael Tripp can save me.
Tripp and Terra's story continues in Book Two of Mafia Made, The Game Changer.

I got lost in this book...so much so that when hitting the side button of my kindle to turn the page, I was gutted to find that I was already at 100%. Just having got to yet another great part it was all over and I was left hungry for more. If you like raw, hot and hard this book is definitely for you. Filled with dirty talk, suspense, sex and lies this book was a page turner. Another thing I loved about this book was the Author, written by a man only added extra depth to the story.
Michael Tripp spent 10 years in the Marines, he has been out for a year and now makes his money as a Gun Runner. Michael lives by his own rules and even though he deals with guns he wont sell them to just anyone.
Terra is a mafia princess, living of her daddy's money she turns a blind eye and def ear to all the rumours about how he makes his money. She isn't stupid by any means she just lives in her own bubble of sorts.
When Terra is dragged from a coffee shop by her ex, her saviour comes dressed in a suit and goes by the name Tripp. Tripp sees a woman being taken against her will and it doesn't sit right with him. He goes straight into protective mode and saves the day.
