*** I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review ***
4.5 stars

I’m sure like many other readers, when I heard that Lili St. Germain was writing Cartel. I did think why the hell would I want to read about a man who I hated with a passion!! Nothing he could ever do or say was going to make me feel sorry for him. Who gives a s*** about his story! Well, I guess that as I’m now writing this review that would me!! lol. The curiosity was to find out about his relationship with Mariana, where it all went wrong, and what made Dorman become the man who I hated was just too much I had to read it.

“Of All the things in life, love is the most confusing. The most all-consuming. The reason we breathe, the light in our darkness”

I’m not going to go into the story, but I will say it’s intense, raw, gritty, and violent with a dark and suspense aspect. It’s about loss, love, heartache, revenge, fear, hope, secrets and survival, and with the drugs and sex trafficking all thrown in for good measure. So it’s safe to say was an intensely captivating read.

“They say every girl want to marry her father, but I wanted mind to vanish”

I love Mariana, and my heart went out to her, her story was filled with sadness, she tries to be strong, she is feisty at times, says what she thinks, regardless of the consequences but underneath there is such as vulnerability about her. I could feel her desperation as she attempts to come to terms with the reality of her devastating the situation. I think knowing what I know, and about how it all ultimately for her made it more heartbreaking.

*Gifted for an honest review*
This book made me anxious before I even got to opening it on my kindle. I didn't want my Lili St Germain bubble to burst, I am only familiar with her Seven Sons series which were novellas and I was a little afraid that perhaps she couldn't pull off a lengthier book with the same effect. I wasn't sure if I could get my head around a story that I already knew the outcome of, a bit like The Titanic I suppose. We all know the story and how it ends but we still sat and watched it full of awe and wonder. Haha, all that fuss for nothing, of course she nailed it!
"But here, alone, nobody knew. Nobody saw. It was just them."
But Cartel did surprise me, I wasn't ready for the amount of emotion that I felt whilst reading. For me there was a pervading sadness from start to finish. A resignation in both Dornan and Mariana that their lives were meant to be the way they were, and the way they were unfolding. Like it was in their stars somehow. This is quite a raw and gritty account of Dornan and Ana and, what I'm guessing, is how Dornan came to be. The history that takes us up to Seven Sons. Christ, it's not pretty for one second but my word are there some gorgeous moments in here. Moments that are Dornan's doing. Dare I say that Mr Dornan Ross once had a heart and soul? I loved that I got so much of Dornan's POV. I know Lili had no intention of trying to make Dornan a redeemable character, somehow though you begin to "see" him as the man he once was and possibly what leads him to being the man he is in Seven Sons. This man quite literally broke my heart in places. And what he didn't, Ana most definitely did. Oh how that woman was broken. Absolutely shattered. We see the beginnings of a love between the two.

***He was nothing. He was everything. He was the only thing I had. ‘You hate me?’ he asked, his voice strained, his pace unrelenting. ‘Yes!’ I cried. ‘I hate you!’ He grinned. ‘One day, you’ll love me. I promise.’ I was afraid that he was right.***

Whether you've read the Gypsy Brothers serial or not, Cartel by Lili Saint Germain is a book that you need to read if you like your romance dark and twisted. Having enjoyed the mini-series myself - rating each book between 3 and 4.5 stars - I couldn't wait to get my hands on a younger Dornan Ross, and I could not be happier with what I read.

If you already know of Dornan and his sons, then you know he is most definitely not a good man. He's the worst. But what's important to remember with this novel, is that it's set before all the events we have previously read about. The Dornan in Cartel, isn't the Dornan you knew in Gypsy Brothers. Well, not completely anyway.

I've been describing him as "the man before the monster," and I have to say, though he is twisted, I do have a real thing to him! I know it's crazy, but when you read it yourself, you just might understand. He was sexy, and caring (yes that's right, he once had a heart!!), but still dangerous, and I just loved getting to see how he was then.

The writing was just fantastic!! I don't know whether it was the help from the publisher, or the fact that the author got to write a full length novel instead instead of instalments, but this book was far better written than her previous works, which as I've already stated, I really enjoyed! I could honestly find no fault at all.

I was drawn in from the beginning, and hooked the entire way through. This is Lili Saint Germain at her absolute strongest.
