Cartel by Lili Saint Germain is book 1 of 3 in her new Cartel series. It's set 16 years before the Gypsy Brother series, so you need not have read those beforehand to enjoy this new saga. I guarantee you'll be hooked by page 1 in this tale of revenge, vengeance and lust.

Cartel's opening is one of guns, drugs, passion and money. Vengeance for mistakes and family as payment. You soon learn you never, ever mess with Emilio Ross: Kingpin of the II Sangue Cartel and Marco Rodriguez has done just that by loosing a shipment of coke. This action leads the Sangue Cartel to Columbia Andi. Turn to Marco's daughter Marianna; 19, a woman who has frequently bailed her father out of his epic mistakes. She dreams of leaving her troubled, dirty and controlled existence behind to escape to America and freedom, but it all changes in one evening. Her life is irrevocably altered in an instant and she makes the ultimate sacrifice for her family: becoming a possession.

Marianna is one tough, feisty and fearless female. She's intelligent and strong. These traits impress Emilio and she's not sure how to interpret that.... He's far from kind. The polar opposite in fact and he and his minion Murphy make your skin crawl in every scene their in.Vile, malevolent and cruel are not adequate words for those two. They love to taunt, torture and terrorise people Marianna copes with all she endures by keeping focussed on surviving and protecting what she loves. She's far from broken and submissive, she's damaged, but stubbornly determined.

Emilio's son Dornan also plays a pivotal role in Marianna's time with the Cartel as he is VP of the Gypsy Brothers MC which is also controlled by Emilio. Those familiar with the Gypsy Brothers series know this notorious character well. Will your opinion change...

Well what a read!!! After reading The Gypsy Brothers series and knowing what a bad man Dornan Ross is it felt a tad wrong to have a bit of soft spot for him, but now after reading Cartel I think I have a full blown crush on him haha.
Mariana gave herself to Emilio (Dornan's Dad) in exchange for her families lives, her father had
run up a lot of debt with Emilio and was about to be killed. Would you - could you give yourself to the Cartel knowing what was in store for you?
I love the way Lili Saint Germain writes, she kept me on the edge from page 1 and really can't wait to read book 2!!

*** 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.
