Cartel by Lili St. Germain

Cartel by Lili St. Germain

ARC was kindly provided by the publisher, via Edelweiss, in exchange for an honest review.

4 what just happened stars!

First of all let me tell you I never thought I’d thank Dornan Ross for anything but I had a major reading slump going on and this is officially my first review of the year so thank you Dornan and Lili for this!

After reading the book basically my mind was in a shocked what did I just read state. This is definitely NOT the Dornan Ross I’m familiar with and lets be honest hate, this one had a soft-ish side, not happy go lucky but not as dark and gritty as I thought it was going to be, it’s the prequel of a huge story and I guess it makes sense that it would start somewhat grayish and turn to the coal black fucked up state the story turned to.

Cartel was not what I had in mind that’s for sure!

Mariana, oh that poor girl; she’s not even sold from her father to Emilio Ross, she’s just given away like she’s nothing in order for Emilio not to kill her family. Her fate would have been the same as any girl that Emilio captures – SOLD – if Dornan hadn’t interfere. Not saying that staying with Dornan is a good thing – although Mariana will tell you differently – but it’s sort of better than being sold to probably the worst person Emilio could think of (slowly torture her father by torturing her) – not a good family in case you had any doubt.

What started out as a captivity situation between Mariana and Dornan involved into something… I can’t really put into words. Dornan is Dronan, he’s ruthless and even more ruthless, so ruthless and cruel and just an awful person it’s both unsettling and fascinating reading his background story from when he wasn’t so ruthless. His relationship with Mariana (even though it reminded me weirdly of his relationship with Julz, in a very disturbing way but I could see some similarities) and his relationship with his father had a few key points in the story where Dornan’s character shows a big character development.

If you liked the Gypsy Brothers series (DUH!) you’ll definetely be surprised with this book, good surprised – like me – I hope!
