His eyes lit up at that as his gaze travelled across my chest and wandered down to the most private of places. I was clothed and covered in the right places, but in front of him, I felt completely naked. The feeling was unnerving and delicious all at once, which only confused me further.
So he’s sexy as hell. It doesn’t matter. He’s the enemy.
‘It doesn’t matter anyway,’ I added hastily. ‘I’ve got a nasty case of the clap. Better not rape me or your pico might fall off.’ I thrust my chin out as I used the Spanish term for ‘small dick’, smirking at the Gypsy Brother as his warm hands continued to roam every bit of bare flesh on my arms.
Dornan laughed at my admission, a throaty noise full of gravel and insolence that made me increasingly unsteady on my feet.
‘I’m not going to rape you,’ he replied, amusement dancing in his dark eyes. ‘And you don’t have the clap. So don’t use that one on me.’

Book Summary
cartel cover use.jpg
How much is a life worth?

Mariana Rodriguez is the eldest daughter of a Colombian drug lord. Growing up in Villanueva, Colombia, she has never wanted for anything. Private schools, a lavish lifestyle, and the safety of the Cartel that her father works for.
At nineteen, she's got her entire life mapped out, and what a good life it's going to be: graduate from college, move to America, and finally be free from the stifling grip of the Cartel.

Only, her father messes up. A shipment of cocaine - a very large, very valuable shipment - is seized by the authorities whilst under his care and he becomes liable for the debt. Half a million dollars worth of cocaine.
Half a million dollars he does not have.

But he has a daughter, a very smart one, a daughter who would give up her very existence and offer herself as payment for her father's sins, to ensure her family survives.

But falling in love with the man who owned her wasn't part of the plan ...

Review by Emma Mistress of all Dark & Twisted

Cartel by Lili Saint Germain is book 1 of 3 in her new Cartel series. It's set 16 years before the Gypsy Brother series, so you need not have read those beforehand to enjoy this new saga. I guarantee you'll be hooked by page 1 in this tale of revenge, vengeance and lust.

Cartel's opening is one of guns, drugs, passion and money. Vengeance for mistakes and family as payment. You soon learn you never, ever mess with Emilio Ross: Kingpin of the II Sangue Cartel and Marco Rodriguez has done just that by loosing a shipment of coke. This action leads the Sangue Cartel to Columbia Andi. Turn to Marco's daughter Marianna; 19, a woman who has frequently bailed her father out of his epic mistakes. She dreams of leaving her troubled, dirty and controlled existence behind to escape to America and freedom, but it all changes in one evening. Her life is irrevocably altered in an instant and she makes the ultimate sacrifice for her family: becoming a possession.

Marianna is one tough, feisty and fearless female. She's intelligent and strong. These traits impress Emilio and she's not sure how to interpret that.... He's far from kind. The polar opposite in fact and he and his minion Murphy make your skin crawl in every scene their in.Vile, malevolent and cruel are not adequate words for those two. They love to taunt, torture and terrorise people Marianna copes with all she endures by keeping focussed on surviving and protecting what she loves. She's far from broken and submissive, she's damaged, but stubbornly determined.

Emilio's son Dornan also plays a pivotal role in Marianna's time with the Cartel as he is VP of the Gypsy Brothers MC which is also controlled by Emilio. Those familiar with the Gypsy Brothers series know this notorious character well. Will your opinion change... I won't spoil that, but you may understand his behaviour a little more. He is already feeling "the darkness that flowed through his veins disgusted him, but trying to resist it had only ever made things worse." This darkly menacing biker becomes obsessed with Marianna and feels a need building inside him, will the consequences work in her favour or not??

Lili takes you for a walk on the dark and dirty side of life. She makes you question how far you'd be willing to go to save those you loved and what lengths you'd go to to survive. What happens when the lines of right and wrong blur and when the lines of hate and love are crossed... This tale is about one woman's journey to survive against several men who are out to ensure a debt is paid by any means necessary and her fortitude at being able to see what her Endgame will be.

None Gypsy Brother readers:
This first book details the backgrounds and motivations behind the II Sangue Cartel and beginning of The Gypsy Brothers MC which Dornan and his best friend John Portland started with Emilio's assistance. You truly feel like this is laying the foundations for a truly amazing series which with later 2015 releases of Kingpin and Empire will lead into the Gypsy Brothers series perfectly.

Title: Between Everything And Us
Author: Rebecca Paula
Genre: New Adult
Release Date: January 20, 2015
Cover Design: Maggie Hall
Matisse Evans is determined to make her sophomore year of college successful after failing out of a prestigious art school and spending a horribly boring gap year at home. Despite her focus, time isn't on her side as she struggles to hold down three jobs so she can afford her first apartment while juggling course work. In the chaos of it all, Beau Grady moves in and shakes up her world. A college dropout and tattooed bad boy, the rumors about Beau mean one thing for Matisse—trouble. Paralyzed by the fear that she's missing out on life, Matisse discovers plans may unravel, but what rises in their wake can be worth the uncertainty. After spending the summer couch surfing, Beau Grady moves into an empty room at his ex-girlfriend’s Portland bungalow, skipping his senior year of college to spend his days working at a Vietnamese food cart instead. Once a star hockey player and gifted student, he’s put his life on hold after receiving a life-altering diagnosis, complacent to live in the moment. Hiding behind false rumors and bad habits, Beau falls for Matisse, letting her believe the worst until their relationship blooms into something they both can’t ignore. Falling for her means having to face a future he’d rather forget, but loving her just might be worth it.

Between Everything Cover
She grabs my hands and pins them together. I don’t fight off her touch. I let Mati gather them and raise them above my head. “I think it’s so easy to fall into the world when you’re not ready,” she says seriously. Her free hand brushes over my brows, then sweeps down my nose. “It’s such a big place and we’re all very tiny in the scheme of things.” “What are you trying to say?” “It sucks being an outlier, Beau. I get it. But in spite of everything, we’re always going to feel a bit lost. It’s the part of growing up that no one ever tells you about.” “You’re very wise today, Miss Mati.” “I’m lots things, mister. I’m...” Her voice drops off and she nervously glances down at my chest. “I think I’m a little bit in love with you actually.” At least I’m sitting. That doesn’t help the way my stomach drops though. I snake my hands out of her grip and brace them around her face. There’s a reason why outliers exist on the outside—they can’t find their way in. Mati is no outlier to me. We kiss for what seems like hours. I don’t care if it’s for days. But we kiss until my mouth wipes away the nervousness in that confession of hers, while I still cowardly hide behind mine. In the wild, in the sun, Mati and I are...well, we’re something I never thought I’d have or find. And that’s everything.

Author Bio

**Bound by custom or unique by choice.**

There's something about the written word that's pure magic.

Possibly it's the fact that there are 26 letters in the English alphabet, and they can create something so beautiful or so empowering that they're able to change our lives.

How important is it that we break suit and stretch our minds?

I like to think of myself as 'unique'. My stories aren't for everyone, and sometimes I may push what you believe to be 'normal'.

Normal is subjective.

I prefer to be known as a person who's never been 'bound by custom' but is 'unique by choice'.

Until next time
