If you could take any character from The Cartel out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Any additional comments?
this book reminds me of the Dutch trilogy, by Teri Woods, it was also a great audio to listen too, well worth the money. the narrator Cary Hite was great, reminds me of Erza Knight.

Entranced and ready for more
This book was such a thrill to listen to. I have been waiting for more Ashley and Jaquavis audiobooks because after I had listened to Murderville I was definately hooked on their story line and the way that these to authors draw their characters and play out their story with so many twists and turns throughout the book things you would have never imagined how things would turn out. Cary Hite is amongst one of my most favorite narrators, the way that he can change his voice and go in and out of character is amazing. It seems like there are a lot of uptight people who comment on books with a lot of sex scenes or harsh language, but I loved everything about this book. It was raw and uncut gives you a taste of the real world and that is another reason that the author's have captivated me. If you don't like to hear detailed sex scenes or murders or don't like crude language then dont listen to this book. I love all the gorey details and can picture the scenes in my head, pain and pleasure. My favorite characters were Money aka Monroe and Lena and that twist in the book. I never expected what happened to happen so once you hear that part you will know what I mean. This family's story had me at the edge of my seat and I am ready for parts 2 and 3 which are downloading right now and will be commenting on them shortly. I give this book two thumbs up along with two big toes.

Completed in One Day
This book ranks very high in my library. I remember the Murda Mamas from Murderville which I am still waiting for part 2 of that TRILOGY. I finished Cartel the same day and listened to it a second time so I could be ready for book 2 which I am purchasing TODAY!! I loved the twists and the drama. I really hope part 2 is just as intriguing. So far Ashley and JaQuavis is 2 for 2. GREAT AUTHORS!! Unpredictable storyline.

The Cartel experience was superb!
What a magnificent read! The opening scene was shocking but the Diamond family is one that readers want to see victorious in the end. I was sad when Breeze was sucked in by association but I believe that Carter will pull this crime family through. Can't wait to read the others in this trilogy! My new favorite crime family!

Waste of a credit
Any additional comments?
I got this book based on the description and excellent reviews it received. It was not at all what I expected. This book is basically a romance novel set around a crime family. It may have almost been bearable if it wasn't for the cheesy sound effects sprinkled throughout. Aren't those for children's books?
