    4.5 STARS There s no justice, not in this world All we have is vengeance This was dark enemies to lovers heaven The BEST of the series so far Quique, Kyle s right hand man, meets Natalia while taking care of some extremely bloody cartel business in London They were fabulous together I should have shot the bitch the first time I met her It might seem strange to use the above quote to characterize their relationship, but it suits them so well They were equals in every way and their cat and mouse games were so entertaining you can t be a shrinking violet when you re dealing with douchebags Adams writing has definitely improved even though she still has the horrible habit of using exclamation points everywhere which makes the dialogue somewhat cheesy Regardless, I m rounding up based on all of the following heroine with a backbone of steel alpha hero who isn t sleazy great banter NO annoying I m overcome by my lust for you intricate plot that comes together nicely fabulous British slang throughout crazy British extended family I think it s possible to read this as a standalone, and if you like this kind of trope, I highly recommend Bruja, it s a wonder you made it past childhood You ve got an evil tongue Triggers LOTS, but this was definitely a tamer story compared to the first two books Moving on to book 4

    Once I got used to the phrasing and language of this story, I found it to be an enjoyable, suspenseful read Natalia was spunky, sassy, feisty, strong, independent, reliable and amazing Quique was fierce, loyal, devoted, dominant, aggressive, alpha, protective, intelligent and supportive I enjoyed the development of their relationship and how it was obvious to me, the reader, that they were on their way to forever, even though they were living in denial The author explored many facets of the underworld and crime, such as gambling, kiddie porn, regular porn, cartels, corrupt cops, rape, assault, domestic abuse, murder, etc There was definitely a lot going on and it kept things interesting If there was one thing I could have changed, especially earlier on in this story, it would be making Enrique appear stronger when confronting his cheating wife She got away with a lot and considering the fact that he was the 3 in the world s most elite cartel, I expected in retaliation More in regards to retribution Just However, what he dealt with and the way he handled it spoke to the character of the man and it was very hard not to respect the heck out of him He had such a compassionate soul for such a hard man and it made him a sympathetic character It was really easy to like Natalia Although she came off rough and hard to take, it was clear that these were her defense mechanisms Used to shouldering the burden of those around her, she had to stay strong in the face of every adversity Her life had proven to be difficult but she handled it with grace and perseverance I enjoyed the heck out of this book If you like stories that involve action, suspense, hints of mystery, a great moving plot with interesting and dynamic characters, then I m sure you ll enjoy the heck out of Dirty Dealings too Release Date June 27, 2016 Genre Romantic Suspense POV Dual 1st person Heat 2.5 out of 5 Type Standalone Book 3 of the Zetas series with character crossover

    You remember to cosset my pride, and I ll cosset yours When it comes to mafia cartel stories we usually see characters who are in the top of the chain of command, perfect confident members who are always in control of the situation and never question themselves when it comes to success With Dirty Dealings though that was not the case, we finally have the chance to see the life of those who are not in command, those who simply have to follow orders from their boss and accept the punishment if they mess up.It was so interesting seeing the Zeta cartel through the eyes of Quique, his was a vulnerable character not only because of his recent problems with his cheating wife but also with past issues that affected his confidence It was so hard to see him always so afraid of disappointing his boss whom he admired and being scared that other members would think less of him after what happened with his wife It was so fortunate that he met the heroine, seeing how much confidence her support gave him was amazing and his change for the better was becoming and obvious as he got closer with her.Natalie I think is my favorite heroine in the Zeta cartel, between her and Quique I think she was stronger and confident I liked the fact that she always dealt with her problems herself, we always see in books the hero arriving at the proper time to save the heroine but that didn t happen here, Natalie most of the time went through difficult situations by herself both in the past and present and Quique usually was there after the incidents happened to witness the aftereffects of them It was also really funny when she threatened Quique, she was the only heroine who dared threatened a zeta member and it showed how brave she was when she needed to protect her family You and me fighting I can t imagine it, bruja There s no way you could win Is that so Her arms snaked around me Bring it on, love What I didn t like in this book was the character development of some of the members of Natalie s family, towards the end I saw a very big change in them that was way too extreme to be believable to me I also didn t like the fact that Quique s divorce wasn t finalized and a done deal when he met the heroine, he didn t go back to his wife but that, plus the fact that he hired prostitutes after he met the heroine even if he ended up deciding to not do anything with them was what made me give this book 3 stars I voluntarily reviewed the free copy of this book that I received.

    Follow Just A Girl High On Books for reviews I protect the people I love, and I play by my own rules I won t apologise for that After Kyle and Chloe, after Arturo and Solitaire, it is now finally Quique s turn When Quique finds out that his wife Tina is cheating on him with Antonio, that too in Quique s own bedroom, he is beyond appalled He is frustrated and he wants his revenge However, Tina is Arturo s cousin and Antonio is family as well How can he shoot either of them, then That is why Arturo decides to send him to London to take care of some business and that is where he finally meets her Natalia.The cute, smart and sassy Natalia was never the girl he wanted for himself but when he is finally stuck with her, there is nothing he can do But then he finds out about Delicia, the thirteen year old Natalia is providing for and things start to get tricky.The best thing about this book is the topics it touches It discusses rape and child porn These issues are very sensitive for the general reader but they are very important issues as well In this novel, Adams brings those issues forward and explains what people feel like when they got through rape and what not how the family members react to it and how they should react to it.Honestly, this book was great and a genuine improvement from the first two I mean, how is Adams improving her books as time passes and I would give it a 4.5 because of the themes it touches So if you are okay with violence and other gore themes, then this book is for you Just remember that the writing style might not be for everyone, though

    2am is not my usual bedtime but this book kept me up reading till way past my usual bedtime What an interesting, provocative, intense but also at times humorous novel I love the way the author creates flawed but lovable characters that fall for each other and become stronger individuals as a result of their relationship Sitting with a British friend yesterday I was giving her the gist of the story when she said, Wow Peckham is where my daughter taught when she finished her education She has been back in touch with some of her students through Facebook Well, she immediately knew that Peckham is noted for being a rather criminal environment and was not surprised by my synopsis of the story she might even buy it when I give her the link she can do so So, the story Quique, in charge of security for the Mexican Zeta cartel, is sent to England when an assassination attempt is made on the Zeta boss in charge of the area His mission to find out what person or entity to punish as well as help extend the area the Zetas control Natalia has a dream and has put it on hold to help out her ex husband s family by running the Black Horse Pub Her life is not and never has been easy but she has not let it get her down When the worlds of Quique and Natalia collide their lives are changed forever Thank you to the author for the free copy in exchange for my honest review.
