I'm super excited that I was able to read 7 books this month. I've been struggling for a long while. My health and not having a good system in place has affected me greatly, but now I think I have a good one. I talked about it in a previous post. I will listen up to 5% of each book for the month and those that immediately grab my attention will go to the top of the list. And since I will already be interested, I will be able to move to the next book without hesitation.

Reading progress update: I've read 62%.
The Cartel 7: Illuminati: Roundtable of Bosses - Ashley and JaQuavis,JaQuavis Coleman

This book is telling all kinds of truths. I think I started this series at book 5. I didn't feel lost because my cousin had read the first 3 ( I think) and told me about them. I want to go back and read 1-4 to familiarize myself with the characters and how The Cartel and its members got started. I want to and will own the entire series for my home library. The books are definitely re-readable.

Sales Blitz for Little Doll: The Complete Cartel Series by Melissa Jane
 
Title: Little Doll: The Complete Cartel Series
Author: Melissa Jane
Genre: Mafia Romance
Release Date: February 26, 2017
 
 
 
 

 
 
 
One family rules them all. Hector and Juan Florez. A father and son, both dangerous and ruthless, who will stop at nothing and dispose of everyone to remain the kingpins of the cartel world. 
 
Unwillingly thrust into a land of rival cartels and underbelly empires, four complete strangers must battle their darkest demons and those chasing them if they want to survive.
 
For Laila, her unwitting mistake set the wheels in motion where good and evil would collide in the most vicious of ways. 
 
For Danny, losing the love of his life so violently would take him on a path of retribution and heartbreaking humility.
 
For Anna, she had always been a target, a lamb hunted by its prey.
 
For Sofia, she was simply beautiful collateral damage, the result of a tragic betrayal.
 
Each stranger has their own story, one so utterly devastating and empowering. When their stories cross paths allegiances are formed and war is waged. The Florez Cartel had conquered many battles, but this, they never saw coming. 
 
Payback is a deadly game.
 
 
 
 
One look and I became his. One look and I didn’t even think to run. Just one look, and Juan Florez had found his golden ticket. On the wrong side of town in a drug fueled heartland, I went in search of my younger brother, Ethan. What I would find was something belonging to nightmares. What I would lose would unknowingly become my fight for survival. An escape from the clutches of evil seemed almost an impossible task. Warring with Mexico’s leading cartel would only see me closer to my grave. Or worse, used as a bargaining chip to seal a sickening deal my brother had played a part in. But then there was one man who ruled over me. A man who promised to destroy my world at every turn. Juan Florez. Taking on the notorious cartel son was a battle I was bound to lose.
 
 
 
 
 
●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●
 

To hunt or to be hunted? When you escape Mexico’s leading cartel, expect retribution. When you escape from Juan Florez, a man who lives for the thrill of the chase, expect to run from the shadows that follow your every move. I was “his”. He craved and demanded my fear. He destroyed me in every way he enjoyed. It was power. Seduction. I could run. I could hide. But for how long? He had one objective and that was to reclaim his prize, even if it meant putting to rest the one man who stood in his way. Aiden. His brother. When yesterday I had nothing to lose and today I have everything to keep, can I trust the very man whose family of monsters is now chasing me?
 
 
 
 
●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●
 

Monsters…. They are real. They watch you from their safe place, taunting, knowing. They breathe down your neck and chase you in your dreams. You wake, but they are still there. Saving everyone was impossible. The destruction, heartbreaking. One man was to blame. Anna knew he was there. His eyes following her every move, his presence beckoning a fate she needed to escape. This was a war where good never stood a chance. Danny knew he was a target, trapped in a place that would bring him to his knees, survival holding no promises. How do you win a battle that was lost from the very beginning? Monsters… They will destroy you. 
 
 
 

●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●
 

He smiles. Winks. Eyes glistening an evilness known to no other. And then… I lose everything. It takes a heartbeat. A silent promise. A guarantee that it’s all only just the beginning. Everyone has a story. Mine is one I don’t want to remember. Deceived by those closest to me, I was thrown deep into a world of violence, corruption and trafficking. The dark, sinister world belonging to one Hector Florez, Mexico’s leading cartel boss. What he wants is control. What I crave is freedom. They say everyone has an angel watching over them, protecting. Me? I had my very own demon.
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Lover of dark, fast-paced stories with a dash of romance, Melissa Jane’s books are a ruthless combination of dangerous cartel Kingpins and beautiful strong heroines. No one is safe within the pages she writes and the underdog is always favored to win… most times.  
When not writing, Melissa loves relaxing with her family and a good glass of wine.

review 2016-12-29 22:58
Cartel - Lili St. Germain Emilio is a kingpin in a drug Cartel. Mariana is nineteen and volunteers herself to pay her father’s debt or her family will be killed. Mariana is sent to San Diego to the Gypsy Brothers MC. The V P of the MC is Emilio’s son Dornan and he is to use her until Mariana is sold as a sex slave. Dornan is known to be cruel yet he lets Mariana know how things work in his world. As time goes on Dornan doesn’t want Mariana sold and goes to his father about this and Dornan is allowed to keep her. Dornan is dangerous and cruel but does have a softer side that Mariana gets to see. Dornan tried to protect Mariana. I don’t hate this story but I don’t love it either. Probably a little too dark for me. But I have 2 more stories in this series to read so I will see how they go. I have to say I am very glad that Dornan had some heart left and showed it to Mariana even though he struggled with love. I think Mariana fell too quickly for Dornan but kinda works with the story as he did prevent her from being sold. This story was definitely full of twists and turns and I did Basically like that. There was a lot in this story: bad bikers, drug cartel, family, sacrifice, corrupt cops, drugs- of course- , dark secrets, violence, domination, enjoyment of pain to a degree, and so much more. Just didn’t love it but that is me.
