When it comes to mafia/cartel stories we usually see characters who are in the top of the chain of command, perfect confident members who are always in control of the situation and never question themselves when it comes to success. With “Dirty Dealings” though that was not the case, we finally have the chance to see the life of those who are not in command, those who simply have to follow orders from their boss and accept the punishment if they mess up.
It was so interesting seeing the Zeta cartel through the eyes of Quique, his was a more vulnerable character not only because of his recent problems with his cheating wife but also with past issues that affected his confidence. It was so hard to see him always so afraid of disappointing his boss whom he admired and being scared that other members would think less of him after what happened with his wife. It was so fortunate that he met the heroine, seeing how much confidence her support gave him was amazing and his change for the better was becoming more and more obvious as he got closer with her.
Natalie I think is my favorite heroine in the Zeta cartel, between her and Quique I think she was stronger and more confident. I liked the fact that she always dealt with her problems herself, we always see in books the hero arriving at the proper time to save the heroine but that didn’t happen here, Natalie most of the time went through difficult situations by herself both in the past and present and Quique usually was there after the incidents happened to witness the aftereffects of them. It was also really funny when she threatened Quique, she was the only heroine who dared threatened a zeta member and it showed how brave she was when she needed to protect her family.
"You and me fighting? I can't imagine it, bruja! There's no way you could win!"
"Is that so?" Her arms snaked around me. "Bring it on, love."
What I didn’t like in this book was the character development of some of the members of Natalie’s family, towards the end I saw a very big change in them that was way too extreme to be believable to me. I also didn’t like the fact that Quique’s divorce wasn’t finalized and a done deal when he met the heroine, he didn't go back to his wife but that, plus the fact that he hired prostitutes after he met the heroine (even if he ended up deciding to not do anything with them) was what made me give this book 3 stars.
I voluntarily reviewed the free copy of this book that I received.
If there was one thing I could have changed, especially earlier on in this story, it would be making Enrique appear stronger when confronting his cheating wife. She got away with a lot and considering the fact that he was the #3 in the world’s most elite cartel, I expected more in retaliation. More in regards to retribution. Just more! However, what he dealt with and the way he handled it spoke to the character of the man and it was very hard not to respect the heck out of him. He had such a compassionate soul for such a hard man and it made him a sympathetic character. It was really easy to like Natalia. Although she came off rough and hard to take, it was clear that these were her defense mechanisms. Used to shouldering the burden of those around her, she had to stay strong in the face of every adversity. Her life had proven to be difficult but she handled it with grace and perseverance.
I enjoyed the heck out of this book. If you like stories that involve action, suspense, hints of mystery, a great moving plot with interesting and dynamic characters, then I’m sure you’ll enjoy the heck out of Dirty Dealings too.
