This book has sat on my Kindle for what feels like an eternity but when I saw book three is due to be released, I kicked myself into gear and jumped right in. What I expected was more from the cruel, insensitive and extremely dangerous Dornan that we’ve come to know but what I found in Cartel was almost the complete opposite.
The story starts out by focussing on Marianna, or Ana, as she’s ripped away from her family by Dornan’s father, Emilio Ross, after her father lost a large shipment of drugs to the DEA.
Ana manages to negotiate her family’s safety by sacrificing their life in return for hers. Not killed but instead transported to the USA, as a drugs mule, Ana expects to be sold in order that Emilio can recoup some of his financial losses and to inflict unknown pain on her family as a result. However, when Dornan is tasked to collect Ana, he finds something he doesn’t expect.
Dornan sets about trying to ensure Ana isn’t sold by his father and suggests, instead, that she is used as a whore by the Gypsy Brothers, or so Emilio thinks. Dornan actually takes her to his house and slowly starts to fall for her determination not to be broken down by anyone. With danger still at her every turn, Dornan finds a way to make her useful to his father.
This is definitely a serial with a hard edge and is not one for the more sensitive of readers. There is violence, abuse, drug use and also Dornan, so be warned!
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...Read more ›
Emilio Ross Kingpin of the cartel is a sick and twisted man who does what he wants when he wants to whomever he pleases takes Mariana as debt owed to him then hands her over to the Gypsy Brothers MC mainly his son Dornan
If you've read the Seven Sons series you would have already met Dornan who was a sick twisted son of a gun, The sins of the father prevail in this case but this story starts 16 years before the Seven Sons series so we see a whole different side to him and although I never fell madly in love with his character I did feel compassion and pity for him and caught a glimpse of the man he would've been IF his father wasn't who he was.
Mariana my heart broke for her she made a decision to save her family one that will come to haunt her for the rest of her life but she's super smart and feisty so I'm hoping she'll hold her own against these sick twisted f....rs !!!!!
What an amazing start to this series looking forward to reading the next instalment from the dark twisted mind of Lili St Germain
