This flashfic takes place during the events of the first book, when Domenico and Seth are on their mission in Berlin. You can read it even without knowing the story!


The male body held no secrets from Domenico. He knew where to press, pull, and twist in order to give pain or pleasure. He knew how to block air, bruise the kidneys, how to punch to inflict maximum damage to bones and internal organs. He knew how to stitch up wounds, stop hemorrhaging, and which medicines to take to keep himself going in the worst of conditions. But there was something far more effective against bruises and swelling than ice-cold baths.


By the time Domenico was twenty five, he’d learned to associate the painful aftermath of fighting with pleasure, so he didn’t mind the dull throb in his jaw. Even a professional like him was at times surprised by the proficiency of someone met on the job, which was exactly what happened last night.

Throughout the evening, Seth had watched him apply a bag of ice to his swollen face, his mouth tense, as if he were on the verge of asking what happened, but in the end--never did. They weren’t on the best of terms, but that wouldn’t stop Domenico from doing his job for the Family. A firm hand could transform anyone into a worthy man, and so he’d told Seth to prepare for a wrestling lesson first thing in the morning.

Twenty minutes in, both their fingers were slipping over sweaty skin, but Domenico pushed on, continuously trapping his student/opponent with well-practiced locks and pins. In a real fight, one never had the opportunity for breaks.

Neither of them said a thing, but the air filled with stifled sighs and groans that sounded very much like a long, slow fuck. Domenico blew on his forehead to get loose hair out of his eyes and twisted Seth’s arm back before applying pressure between his shoulder blades and ultimately pushing him face-down into the thin mattress. Their bodies pressed together, Domenico’s groin against Seth’s ass, and they both stilled. Seth twisted his head and looked at Dom, his thick lips open. He didn’t fight and just relaxed, watching his opponent with a curious mixture of apprehension and excitement.

The room was so still Domenico could hear children shouting in the street.

Without a word, he rolled Seth to his back, but before he could do anything else, the muscular arm that he’d been holding just seconds ago pulled on his shoulder until their mouths met in a kiss that made champagne explode at the back of Domenico’s mind.

In that moment, the pain in his jaw was completely forgotten.

To begin your journey with Seth and Domenico you should start here, with Book One: He Is Poison.

--- Love like butterfly knives in the stomach. ---

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.


Themes: Enemies to lovers, mafia, homophobia, assassin, organized crime, forced proximity

Genre: Dark, twisted M/M romance / crime thriller

Length: ~110,000 words

WARNING: Adult content. Sizzling hot scenes. If you are easily offended, this book is not for you.
‘Guns n’ Boys’ is a gritty story of extreme violence, offensive language, abuse, and morally ambiguous protagonists. Behind the morbid facade, there is a splash of inappropriate dark humor, and a love story that will crawl under your skin.

K.A. Merikan are a team of writers who try not to suck at adulting, with some success. Always eager to explore the murky waters of the weird and wonderful, K.A. Merikan don’t follow fixed formulas and want each of their books to be a surprise for those who choose to hop on for the ride.

K.A. Merikan have a few sweeter M/M romances as well, but they specialize in the dark, dirty, and dangerous side of M/M, full of bikers, bad boys, mafiosi, and scorching hot romance.
