CURRENTLY READING ~ CARTEL BY LILI ST. GERMAIN

How much is a life worth?
I grew up in Colombia, the daughter of a wealthy drug lord. I lived a life of extravagance, until one day a drug run went horribly wrong and everything came crashing down around us.
I was given away. A payment for a debt. The Gypsy Brothers Motorcycle Club became my new owners, and I did everything I could to survive.
But falling in love with the man who owned me wasn’t part of the plan…

This one doesn’t come out until the 27th (just 2 more weeks to go!!) but I highly recommend you preorder it now so you’ll have it ready to read when the day comes. Why? Because I am LOVING IT! It’s so hard – at least for me it is – to find a book these days that’ll really grab me by the collar and keep me hooked so I’m really happy to say this one is doing the trick.
What’s this one about? Well, it’s a part dark romance, part suspense/thriller biker book and is the first in a prequel series to the Gypsy Brothers MC series but the best thing about all this is it doesn’t matter if you’ve read those books or not. You’re perfectly safe to start with Cartel and I actually encourage new readers to this author to begin with it. Here are my reasons:
  1. Chronologically, the events in Cartel happen first, so if you’re a reader who likes to read things as they happen in order, beginning with Cartel is your best bet.
  2. The hero(?)/male lead/er…let’s just call him Dornan is present in both series and to get the full reading experience on his character, it’s good to start with this one first. You see his gradual transformation from the guy he was in the past to the man he’s become in the Gypsy Brothers MC series.

P.S. If you’ve read the Gypsy Brothers MC series and plan on reading Cartel, I would like to give you an internet pat and hug and say what a brave soul you have LOL!

But right, back to this book. Basically our heroine Mariana pays for the mistakes made by her father and is more or less, sold and taken to Dornan, the VP of the Gypsy Brothers MC. Even though I’m only 55% through right now, the overall book feel is INTENSE, and the author really digs deep into cartel dealings along with the club atmosphere. There’s sex, drugs, booze, and all that jazz, and there are moments of vulnerability shown by both main characters, but at this point I’m just waiting for the bomb to drop. I have a feeling it’ll be huge.
More to come. I should be done with the book sometime this afternoon/early evening and will keep y’all updated. My next post will most likely be my review
