Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

I don’t know what about this book I’m most insulted by: the fact that it honestly believes it’s a mafia book or that it dares to call itself a romance. I had high hopes for it–I love Italian mafia-related content, and gangster romances are honestly so hard to come by because none of them I’ve read are any good.

And now Gun Moll can be added to that sad little pile of disappointments.

Here’s the quick run-down: Melina’s an escort who gets entangled with the mob. Her life is put in danger basically because Mac, a little mobster soldier, can’t mind his own business. Melina looks suspiciously like an undercover cop as a result, so she and Mac have to pretend to be in a relationship until the heat’s taken off of them. Predictable sex happens, someone tries to kill them, sex happens again (and again and again), and eventually, resolution arrives along with the set-up for the next book, which, no thanks. If the plot sounds vague to you, that’s because there barely is one!
