Dornan, Emilio Ross's son meets Marianna when she is brought to San Diego, and is instantly attracted to her. When he finds out she fixed her father's books, and kept him afloat despite so much debt, he finds the instrument he needs to keep his father from selling Marianna.
This story is about the two of them and how hard it is to live in a circumstance like theirs. This book is full of horrible things that these men do to women, and to others. This book reads really swift, and there is so much darkness in it, besides the men in it being ruthless, on the other hand it is exciting to see what happens next.
As time goes on, Marianna does a great job at finding discrepancies in the books, which is her only saving grace from Emilio, or he would have sold her. Despite the violence Marianna develops true feelings for Dornan. I can't wait to read part 2 and 3, it is that good.
I gave this book 4**** stars, and am off to red part two!
I didn’t think anyone could convince me that Dornan Ross had a heart, let alone one with a regular beat. Then I read Cartel and met the younger Dornan. The man he was before he became the monster I despised in Lily St Germain’s Gypsy Brothers series. The more I read about the younger Dornan, the more I was swayed into the belief that he was someone that could love and be loved or an emotion close to love…
Cartel tells the story of how easy it is to become entrapped by circumstance or merely because of whom you are related to. Dornan and Mariana’s fathers are involved in a world where corruption is the norm and the Cartels’ word is law. Whether willingly or unwillingly, you don’t walk away from the Cartel, with no visible means of escaping, unless you count death as a welcome alternative. To be honest it didn’t seem such a harsh choice to make at times…
Dornan plays a game of cat and mouse with the people surrounding him, including his notorious father. How long he is able to keep it up, is the big question. This is where Dornan took me by surprise, he was caring, loving and had an air of innocence to him that rocked my pre conceived opinion of him. In all fairness, I have no recollection of reading a snippet of the man we get to know in this book. I wonder though, thinking back if I chose not to see any good, influenced by the Dornan Ross that appeared in the Gypsy Brothers Series.
Mariana was a strong likeable character. Ripped from happiness into despair, forced to clean up a mess not of her own making, she finds herself at the mercy of the Il Sangue Cartel. Her options were limited, surely there had to be a better way for her to avoid the situation she found herself in. What they put her through was heartbreaking and her drive for survival throughout was equalling moving. All along she just needed to get through the next moment, whether that be minutes, hours or days…
The ending had an air of suspense, a dramatic break in the story and I will be keeping a keen eye out for Kingpin, the next book in this series.
What was most shocking having read the Gypsy Brothers series, was seeing Dornan before all that transpired. Cartel shows a much more human side to Dornan and gives so much insight into the younger version of him.
It was almost like night and day. There are so many factors from his younger life that caused the change in him and seeing how he was raised and what was expected of him, is more evident that nurture has more influence in his life than nature.
Cartel is such an emotional story filled with so much turmoil for both characters and what they have to do and who they have to be to survive. Absolutely AMAZING!!
