The Game Changer (Mafia Made #2) by Scott Hildreth (Book Review)


4.5 of 5

Adult Romance/Mafia Romance

ARC provided for an honest review through NetGalley.

This is book 2 in the Mafia Made series, a continuation of The Gun Runner (Mafia Made Book 1). See my 5 STAR review for The Gun Runner HERE.

I recommend reading The Gun Runner first because you need the backstory to fully understand and enjoy this book.

Goodreads blurb:


I’m going to marry this man, and nothing will stop me.
I didn’t expect it to be Michael Tripp who left when we made our announcement. He knows this life, he knows what it means to be a part of mia familia.
He didn’t know he was marrying the boss’s daughter.
I kept it from him—I lied to him.
He came back, thank God. My love forgave me and the wedding is on.
I’ll die before I allow any more secrets to come between us.

I’m a man of my word. I love hard and tell it like it is. But the Mafia has me in their crosshairs and I’m in deep. Partnering with a crime boss is one thing. Working for a crime boss who is also your father-in-law…that’s just f***ed.
I stepped up to the challenge. Shaking things up and making changes that needed to happen to secure our power. And the profits speak for themselves.
No one could have seen the end coming. No one could have stopped it, not even me.
The playing field has changed. And nothing will ever be the same.

I really enjoyed this book and I absolutely loved how it effortlessly transitioned from The Gun Runner to this story. (It has been a while since I read The Gun Runner and I had no issues picking the story back up. The Gun Runner really left a mark on me and I was so excited to reading this continuation.)

What makes this book so good is how Scott Hildreth builds up a detailed mob world that sucks you in. I felt as though I was part of the family and mob. AMAZING. I had strong allegiances/bonds to certain people and questioned everyone. Scott’s writing makes this world REAL. He builds a thrilling story off the detailed and complex characters and keeps the plot moving, ultimately creating a captivating read.

I don’t want to give away too much of this story, what I can say is this book continues to follow Terra and Tripp’s story as they grow and take on new challenges associated with being part of the mob. Overall I really enjoy mob themed romance books and this series is one of the many reasons why. It’s so well done with all the mob details and aspects, HOT HOT HOT chemistry and the interactions between the characters. I can’t wait for the third book, The Good Boss (releasing May 1st), because I have a feeling it’s going to be just as amazing as this book.
