In the de la Rosa family, old grudges run deeper than loyalty, and betrayal is a three-letter word: war. But this feud isn’t between enemies. It’s between brothers. And I’m the prize.
I was born a princess among criminals. An untouchable among thieves. Heiress to a life others have killed for, and one I'd do anything to escape. I vowed not to leave without Diego, my first love and best friend, but if his ruthless brother has his way, I won’t leave at all. Cristiano de la Rosa is a man as big and bold as his legend. Once upon a time, he was our cartel’s best soldier . . . until he became my family’s worst enemy.
A man like Cristiano will bend fate to his will to get what he wants. Even if it means dragging me to hell—and tearing me from his brother's arms.
“She is mine.” Three words from two different men.
A life, a future, and a love I don’t get to choose.

4.5 Killer Stars
4.5 Killer Stars! It’s very hard for me to write this review without giving a spoiler. I had very strong feelings for each of the brothers in the beginning and knew where I wanted them to end up. That being said, I am very pleased with the pace of the story and the way Jessica can write a setting as a major character. It’s visually compelling and though it’s light on the angst, in my opinion, it’s making way for another amazing series. Jessica is really good at writing epic sagas, and this is no exception! I can’t wait for the next book!
Fantastic start to a new series
Holy cow. I hate cliffhangers. HATE them....so I need to really love an Author and trust them if I know I'm getting into something that could end with a cliffhanger. Fortunately for me, I love and trust Jessica Hawkins because let me tell you-this book was great.
If you read this blurb and think it's going to be mafia heavy and hesitate against reading it-I urge you to try it. This takes a different look at that kind of book. I mean, there's families and cartels but it wasn't overwhelming for a reader like me.
These characters? They were amazing. The set up of the dynamics between them absolutely works. I am not going to spoil anything, but I've picked a side in this triangle already. It wasn't an easy decision-because I can understand multiple sides here-but it's going to take a lot for me to switch sides in this case! I'm anxious to see what these characters will get up to next.
Jessica Hawkins took a topic I wasn't sure I'd love and pulled me right into the story. I was there with these characters and I felt for them. That's just talent right there. The writing flowed, the pacing really worked for me.
The ending of this book-even though I somewhat anticipated it-had me saying wow. Just wow. I'm not one to wish time away usually...but I'm ready for June so I can see what happens next in this series.
Books like this are difficult to review without spoiling-and spoilers are no fun. But I definitely enjoyed this book and would recommend it.
Well, Hawkins brought everything to the table with this book. Heat, angst, suspense and twists. This story was the very definition of binge worthy. Get ready to loose sleep over this, because it is just that good.
Where do I even start with Natalia. Having been born into a dangerous life, she’s completely aware of all of her families involvement in organized crime. She’s not your typical damsel in distress in the story. She’s constantly digging for answers and putting herself on the line for her love interest. I really liked her, even though she seemed a tad naive about certain situations. I think that’s because she has dreams of a life outside of the cartel. She’s still hopeful even though her family history has taught her she shouldn’t be.
The men in this story are polar opposites. Diego is kinder and gentle. Where as Cristiano is rough and raw. I have so many theories about these two, but I’ll keep that to myself. All I can say is that anytime I think this author is going to go right, she goes left. And with two men in the story , there’s bound to be more nail biting twists and jaw dropping moments.
This was so different and yet so completely what I love and expect from Jessica. I can’t wait so see what wild ride she’s going to take us on. I’m ready lady, bring it on.
