Review of CARTEL by Lili St. Germain
At nineteen, she’s got her entire life mapped out, and what a good life it’s going to be: graduate from college, move to America with the love of her life, and finally be free from the stifling grip of the Cartel.
Only, her father messes up. A shipment of cocaine – a very large, very valuable shipment – is seized by the authorities whilst under his care and he becomes liable for the debt. Half a million dollars’ worth of cocaine.
Half a million dollars he does not have.
But he has a daughter, a very smart one, a daughter who would give up her very existence and offer herself as payment for her father’s sins, to ensure her family survives.
But falling in love with the man who owned her isn’t part of the plan …
I was intrigued right from the beginning and captivated all the way through.
I loved the characters. Mariana the feisty, sarcastic 19 year old who gives herself to Emilio Ross, the kingpin of the II Sangue Cartel, to save her family.
Emilio’s son Dornan is the one you love to hate, but i actually ended up falling for him, even though he is an evil, sick, sadistic so of a bitch.
This book is dark and twisted, and full of revenge and violence right from the get go, it will leave on the edge of your seat.
I can’t wait to read the next installment in the Cartel trilogy.
