I quit reading the first book after 30%, but did get through this one all the way. If you like main, male characters who are adult gang leaders and members and drug agents who act like they're 15-year-olds this is the book for you! There's instant lust, instant love, glossed-over violence and killings, I-must-leave-you-because-I-love-you-so-much, unbelievable plot twists and at least 20% of the book is I-love-you-and-can't-stand-that-you-might-be-killed, so-I'll-tell-you-to-leave. The gang only deals in guns, not drugs, and I was kind-of hoping the lover of the gang leader would be killed by one of those guns, but, alas, it didn't happen. The gang leader also doesn't hurt women or children, so, hey, he isn't such a bad guy. WAY, WAY overpriced for writing of this caliber.
