Review

"Uncompromising and disturbing -- I couldn't put it down. Nobody writes like Karina Halle, and in this book she takes it to a new level. If you like dark reads, I'd recommend this one highly." - Joanna Wylde, author of Reaper's Property 
*** 
"A dark, unpredictable love story that blows away conventional boundaries." - K.A. Tucker, author of Ten Tiny Breaths
***
"Dirty, dangerous and utterly addictive." - Totally Booked 
***
 "Dirty Angels is a story about power vs. weakness, good vs. evil, strategy vs. threat. All in all, it's like a game of chess with the addition of scorching hot sex." - My Book Muse 
***
 "By the time I reached the last page, I actually said WOW out loud to myself. I won't forget this one for a while." - Biblio Belles Book Blog 
***
 "A book I had to read straight through. Karina Halle still holds the power of drawing me into a story with a pull so strong that no matter how much it may make me cringe, I have to see it through the end before I can come up for air." - Under the Covers
***
"There is something utterly entertaining, if not confronting, about being able to embrace a reality filled with nothing but depravity and still manage to find something beautiful in it. This is a love story. This is a horror story. And it is so ugly at times, that each rare moment of beauty is nothing less than blinding." - Natasha is a Book Junkie

I have discovered a new addiction...and she's called Karina Halle...no kidding it's bad. I have read three of her books over the last few weeks and there is no going back...this woman can write straight to my soul. To read at the end of this book that she wrote it while planning her freaking wedding and then edited ON HER HONEYMOON...who the hell does that?? One very passionate and dedicated storyteller..that's who!
I just read On Every Street yesterday so I would get a little back ground on who this Javier dude was and I am happy to report, he is alive and well a few years later, but has become a much more guarded and less impulsive man when it comes to love. When Javier and his posse kidnap Luisa, the sweet and rather innocent wife of a Mexican drug cartel leader and attempt to use her for a bargaining tool to expand their business, he gets way more than he bargained for...what should have been an easy trade turns into a journey of self discovery for both Javier and Luisa. Dangerous games are being played on both sides and the evil man Luisa was forced to marry reveals himself to be even more despicable than anyone ever thought...leaving Javier and his gang to make some very difficult choices.
I absolutely love how Karina Halle portrays her female characters...showing growth from innocent and frail submissives to powerful forces and strongly sexual beings. And her men...they range from seriously cringe inducing mega-dominant abusive pigs to swoon worthy, yet at times almost forcefully dominant alpha males...with a heart buried so deep in ice you need a blow torch to melt it away.
I loved the pace at which this twisted and suspenseful adventure moved along...there was just enough action and HOT steamy encounters to keep things very interesting.

FIVE PLUS STARS!! Dirty Angels by Karina Halle brings back Javier Bernal in this spin off of the The Artists Trilogy series. Just when you thought you knew this man, your perception will change. Enter Louisa Chavez, a young woman who gets pulled into a life of horror in order to give her parents a better life. She marries the leader of a major Mexican cartel and finds that life with this evil man is not what she expected. Her frantic attempt to escape the life she's entered only ends up in her being kidnapped by a rival cartel, run by Javier Bernal. From there, things get dicey.

Once again, Karina Halle has outdone herself. Her characters come to life and keep pulling you into the story. This story can be read as a standalone, however, reading The Artists Trilogy first can give you better insight into why Javier is the way he is. But read it, because it is worth every single minute of your time!

So, after all the warnings, I was mentally prepared for a dark, erotic, novel filled with drugs, sex and blood. I wasn’t disappointed … but … I was surprised. Surprised that I would fall in love with Javier Bernal, rooting for a drug lord to win the woman. Surprised that I would cheer when Luisa came into her own and shot to kill. Surprised that the book had an HEA that actually left me with a smirk on my face and wondering what the hell Este was going to do now.

Yes, Javier stole my heart. He was a hard man. He was a dirty man. He was a hardened man running from his past by building a Drug Cartel to rival that of the biggest Drug Lord in Mexico, Salvadore Reyes. He never bargained for the innocent Luisa to get under his skin. No, he won’t use the word love ever again but his hand is really getting boring and Luisa is drawing him in. One taste is all it took for him to crumble.

Luisa was a beauty queen. Born into a poor family … a blind mother and a father who developed Alzheimer’s, her dreams of going off to college were crushed. Making ends meet and making a life for her parents were now her goals in life. Until Salvador Reyes came along and promised her more than she could have ever hoped for. Until the wedding night …. until she was taken away and used, abused, passed around – the word “no” was not in Salvador Reyes’ vocabulary. She had to find a way out and to get her parents to safety. There was nothing that Salvador Reyes wouldn’t do – including killing her parents and her for the betrayal.

A kidnapping, a carving, an attempted rape, betrayal and, finally, a coming together of two like souls keeps you sitting on the edge of your seat just waiting to see how everything was going to resolve itself. How were her parents going to be safe?

I was really mad at Karina Halle after reading the Sins and Needles trilogy. She made me fall hard for Javier Bernal in those books and then she snatched away my hopes and dreams of Javier's happy ending. I felt so unresolved after that series... wondering why on earth this author would introduce us to such an enigmatic, charming psychopath only to refuse him the girl, deny his redemption, deny the reader his resolution. I get it now.

Javier did some incredibly despicable things in On Every Street... things that many readers could not get past. I am a reader that loves a jerk... loves a character who seems unforgivable, irredeemable, who seriously surpasses the line of "yes, he can come back from this" by miles and miles... but yet he eventually finds his way. So when Javier never redeemed himself in the Sins books, in many ways he only got worse as time went on through that series, I was really just dumbfounded. I couldn't understand how we never found peace with his character. Looking back, I can appreciate what Karina Halle did with Javier. I waited for him to show remorse, show he held some goodness in his soul. Cliché as it may be, I expected that the light would prevail. Karina Halle didn't give that to me, because that was not Javier. Javier was not remorseful, he wasn't good. She didn't absolve him of his sins because he wasn't seeking redemption. She stayed true to his character... I just didn't know it until now.

"It's not easy to have confidence in who you are, to say #@$% it, the world thinks I am a monster because I am a monster. And I don't care.
