Blog Tour/Review ♥ The Gun Runner by Scott Hildreth ♥

Title: The Gun Runner
Author: Scott Hildreth
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Mafia Romance, Military Romance, and Erotic Romance
Release Date: Aug 8, 2016

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.

   A Review by Wendy 

4.5 Secrets, Mafia, Sex Oh, My! Stars
* * * *1/2

When you read Scott Hildreth, you know you are going to have something worthwhile in your hands. He will fill your mind with stories of complete ideas... but the added bonus is his way in showing you how strong the man loves his woman with his writing. I have read only one other book, Money Shot (Selected Sinners MC, #6). The Hero was so impressive, I immediately understood why Hildreth's fan base was so loyal and huge. It is well deserved.

This new venture, The Gun Runner (Mafia Made, #1) has an introduction to our main characters which is as dynamic as any blockbuster movie. We have a woman who is being forcibly taken by her ex leaving a trail of her Louisianan's in the parking lot while yuppie coffee drinkers watch, stunned and do nothing. When this escalates further, we can feel all of the fight this woman has to get away from this pig...From the corner of her eye she sees....

HIM ...A sound causing both her and the grunt to turn and watch as this vision of Man swaggers closer. Impeccably dressed, piercing steel blue eyes taking all of the surrounding in....A man not to be  ignored....

He causally tells the ex to let go of the woman and receives the standard type of comment from a man who is in the process of beating a woman...Mind your own business...

Later the grunt would wish he had....Because not only does this man make moves swift and clear allowing the woman to move away... it allows our woman to show she is No Victim as she kicks repeatedly in the ex's package once is is down and not a threat to her.

With a introduction like this...nothing could have been better for these two strangers.

The blurb for this book says it all. It sets up everything perfectly.
What I will add is the humanity and vulnerability of our man is something to experience. He is true to himself, true in his business, team members and life vision and loyal to his one friend, Cap. He has his code of ethics grounded from his life in the Marines and as tough as he is...he has been touched and shown a new way of feeling things through this relationship with this woman. His willingness to share verbally how he feels with her is staggering.

Our gal is strong, smart and confused as to how to handle this situation. She knows if she is truthful about where she comes from and who her family is from the start... then more than likely, she will have zero chance with this guy.... And that is not at all what she wants.... Because she knows this is something different... he is an equal in strength yet no Mafia... he is everything and she needs to hold on and let this happen somehow.

This was a captivating read. It had everything needed to make us want more. All of the friends, secondary characters have been set up to tease enough for us to know there is more to them and we like them.

I only had a couple of things gnawing at me during parts of the was all the secrets and hiding from her end.

Over all, this is a huge winner and I am Locked and Loaded wanting the next part of this Gun Runner's Journey.

A gifted copy was provided by author/publisher for an honest review.

Born In San Diego California, Scott now calls Wichita, Kansas home. Residing in Kansas with his wife, Jessica, and six children, he somehow finds twelve hours a day to work on his writing. A hybrid author who has published more than two-dozen romance and erotica novels, his three book series through Harlequin is due to start release with the first book in summer 2016.

Scott has spent his entire life pushing boundaries, and his writing is no exception. Addicted to riding his Harley-Davidson, tattoos, and drinking coffee, he can generally be found in a tattoo shop, on his Harley, or in a local coffee house when not writing.

Loyal to the fans and faithful followers who allowed him to make writing a full-time career, Scott communicates with his followers on Facebook almost daily. He encourages his readers to follow him on Facebook and Twitter.
