Book 1

This book was really good. Lord knows I can't stand Dornan father Amelio (or whatever how you spell that old fu*** name. And Moonshine (aka Murray) I'm glad that Dornan is there for Miranda.

This is NOT your typical a GOOD way!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this audiobook to anyone who can handle dark "romance", violence and gut-wrenching heartache. While it was certainly a dark listen, it was refreshing to have an author not accommodate the "hearts and flowers" HEA that most listeners look for. I appreciated that the author made the story seem real by writing it where every scene didn't turn out perfectly (not even close) for the main characters - she provided a brutally honest glimpse into the life of crime and didn't try to portray it thru rose colored glasses.

What other book might you compare Cartel: Book 1 to and why?

I would compare Cartel to the Dark Duet Series by CJ Roberts because, like the Dark Duet Series, Cartel is truly a dark listen that will captivate you and evoke emotion that softer reads are incapable of. I've never felt sadness, anger and despair while also experiencing drama, love and laughter like these two books provided.

What does Molly Glenmore and Roger Douglas bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I was an avid reader before having children and a career, so I've done my share of both reading and listening. I've got to say that I prefer to listen because I feel like I'm able to interpret the book the way the author intended when it is performed. It's always nice to hear the male POV in a male voice instead of thru my female voice in my head while I'm reading.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.

Any additional comments?

My only complaint about this series by Lili St. Germain is that the last book of the trilogy is taking FOREVER to be released. I almost wish that audible wouldn't have provided the first two books until the third was at least much closer to it's release date. Oh well, it will be a good reason to listen to the first two again, right before the release of the third. :)

So captivating!!

Would you listen to Cartel: Book 1 again? Why?

This story line was so amazing! First and foremost, I got so wrapped up in the emotions of Marianna, that it become intoxicating! How this man whooped up and saved her life, only he is not available in every way, the way she needs. How one can be so treasured and lonely at the same time. WOW!!!

I love all the drama

This books gives me all the things I require in a book. It's a weird kind of naughty, two people who share the same kinks, but the situation they are in is very unstable. I love the angst. In my opinion it was well worth my credit. Enjoy!!
