Amy's 5 star ARC Review of Take The Money And Run ( Malone Brothers #1) by Samantha A. Cole

With a gun and a duffel bag full of cash, Moriah Jensen is on the run from the police and ruthless drug dealers. She’d fled Chicago after her family was murdered and has spent the past four months trying to stay alive. Using an alias, she has bounced around from town to town, state to state, trying to stay at least a few steps ahead of the people chasing her. 

KC Malone is on a two-week leave from his Navy SEAL team when he arrives at his uncle’s beach house to find a beautiful woman pointing a gun at his chest. What the hell had he just walked in on? 

When the two become reluctant, temporary housemates, KC offers to train Moriah to defend herself against an alleged abusive ex-boyfriend. But then her past catches up with her and Moriah has to decide between her love for KC and running for safety. To stay would risk both their lives. To run would mean leaving her heart behind.

5 stars

Its no secret I am a fan of Samantha Cole. Her Trident Men have led us on numerous adventures of the nice and not so nice kind. Thinking how can she top her current series I clicked up my ARC and dove in. 


Moriah Jensen is running. Her life depends on her moving and being smarter. Her choices up until now have not been mistake free and so she is on the move again. If she can just make it somewhere else .. but she is afraid even the furthest place away from the men hunting her still wont be far enough to stay alive. 

KC Malone (Kevin Christopher) is on leave from his team – oh wait – yes SEAL TEAM SIX – for a few weeks. He is tried after the last assignment and taking the job as an instructor is starting to sound better and better each time he makes it home alive. At thirty five he isn’t so sure how much more his body can take. Heading home to Whisper, North Carolina he can't wait to fall into a few day of sleep on the beach at his Uncle’s cottage. Standing with a 9mm aimed at him held by a petite and beautiful woman at 2am inside that cottage was not on his list of things to do first upon arriving home. 

First of all let's just have a chat here about the Malone brothers INCLUDING their Uncle Dan. Im obviously going to be burning up the road between Tampa (Trident Men) and North Carolina; dividing my time between the Malone men and the Trident Security. A girl cannot chose so don’t ask me. However I can say I definitely have a new favorite character and its Dan Malone. Crazy right? The Uncle ….. just wait. I want to work at Malone Hardware and give Jinx belly rubs. And Samantha I'm going to need his story .... 

We meet all of the Malone brothers in this first release and lawd have mercy. Brian and Sean seem to be quit yummy as well – all in Samantha fashion. However I think even if Samantha wrote about a dumpy balding man trying to make a difference I would love him just as much. Her characters hurdle off the pages, seize you in their arms and beg you to love them using their raspy voices against your ear. RIGHT!?!?!?!? -- Don’t act like you don’t giggle like a little school girl because you know you do! 

This is a story of trust, love at first glance by gunpoint and gives you hope that there is ever lasting love. The Malone family are good eggs – This is a fast but amazing read. Fast because you won't want to put it down and amazing because the characters are going to hold you captive from the first page to the last. Readers love a group of characters they can imagine walking down the street. In my world a Navy Seal guy can pass you by daily. (I live in a huge military community). Crazy as it sounds all of her characters from all her books could be living in my town. When you find yourself looking at people cruising about town, in the gym, restaurants and thinking hey that could be KC Malone or Jinx or Dan Malone you have either become so entrapped by the stories you are reading or you are a crazed stalker …. I plead the fifth and potentially check both boxes.

The Malone Brothers is the next must read series from Samantha. Bravo lady – BRAVO! Bring on Sean. The Devils Spare Change is next --- And while you are waiting go back and click up the Trident Series if you haven’t yet. Next up is Tickle His Fancy Book 6 Brody and Fancy’s story ---I think we should ban together and write Samantha encouraging her to do the biggest and best give a way ever. How about a SEAL from Team Six or Team Four, add the Malone brothers to the mix and all the delightful secondary characters appearing in her books --- yup best giveaway EVER –- I have done my job telling you over and over to grab these up! 

AMAZING AUTHOR – Thank you Samantha for the ARC! I am your biggest fan girl --- To the moon and back --- or Tampa and North Carolina …. Review to post to Ramblings From Beneath The Sheets.
