    1. 1.5 stars. Review posted January 18, 2015Me before reading Cartel:As an afterthought…don't forget the challenge. I'm game.*********************************************My frame of mind after reading Cartel……maybe because I didn't get any cookies? Just kidding. I don't need cookies anyway.Even though I'm not a seasoned dark reader, I'm familiar with that subject matter. And, if Antidote is the shocking and incredibly brutal mother and father of dark reads, then Cartel must be the innocent ba [...]

    2. Released today! US UKCartel is a tragic story laced with an edge of hope, darkness and the glimmer of love. It's set against backdrop of violence and depravity where drugs, human trafficking and brutal killings are considered a normal part of life and necessary elements in maintaining a powerful grip on their criminal underground world. This is Mariana’s story. The prologue… her words…. It choked me up and took me to the edge of tears. Because of my understanding of the future, I experie [...]

    3. 4 stars!Finally, a book that grabbed and kept my attention from start to finish! Because nowadays, I feel like I’m hitting a mid-book crisis where not many stories are holding my attention, or the spark of interest at the beginning just fizzles out. In any case, I really enjoyed this book! It was fast-paced, and meshed the stifling cartel atmosphere with the MC setting well. If it weren’t for real life butting in, this is a book I would’ve finished in one sitting. Before I started this boo [...]

    4. 4.5 STARS! ★★★★☆"This isn't a fairytale. I'm not your hero, Ana. Nobody is. Nobody is coming to save you."I can't believe it took me this long to finally pick up this author's book because sign me up for more of the Gypsy Brothers! I've been seeing so many of my buddies reading that series while raving about it and truly, it does live up to its hype. When I heard Cartel can be read without firstly reading the GB series, I quickly took up the chance and jumped right into this one.What I [...]

    5. Where It All BeganThe first in the trilogy, 'Cartel' proves to be as gritty and captivating as the 'Gypsy Brothers' series. Pre-dating the events in the 'Gypsy Brothers Series', this story reveals a more human side of Dornan, back before he became the soulless monster that we all love to hate. Times were much different then, but the foundation is being laid for events yet to pass. Of course, hindsight is 20/20. I found myself waiting for the moment when everything would change and Dornan would m [...]

    6. 4 stars!My very first Lili St. Germain book, and definitely not my last. Cartel is the prequel to St.Germain's Gypsy Brothers series. It's about a girl who was given as a payment for his father's debts. It also follows Dornan Ross's rise to power and descent into darkness. I was a bit nervous starting this book. I don't consider myself a dark reader especially when it comes to my romance, and I'm picky when it comes to my dark reads. Fortunately, I enjoyed this book very much. I enjoyed the writ [...]

    7. 5 BRILLIANT STARSThis book is absolutely fantastic and I couldn't put it down! I was mesmerised and captivated from the first page!! I didn't know what to expect from Lili St. Germain as it's my first book of her! I have been hearing so much about her other series and I was very excited to finally read a book of her!!! And believe me, now after I finished this amazing book, I'm even more intigued to read the Gypsy Brothers!!! What I loved more about this book is the way the author connected the [...]

    8. I am so grossed out, it's dark disturbing and nothing happy or okay happens characters were flat there's no plot, "it's the father is an asshole and his son is cold hearted killer so i'll use my body to turn them against each other" cliché. Dornan:Gross, perv, asshole, twisted mother#@cker, unless you're a vampire, darling you have no reason to love and lick your blood or other people's blood, you sick bastard O_o ! Mariana i'm surprised by Mariana's fast acceptance of her new life, She went f [...]

    9. 5-zero-spoilers-starsOne of the biggest 2014 surprises was Gypsy Brothers series by Lili St. Germain. My co-blogger at Way Too Hot Books, Purple, told me from the start that I would love it. I knew that she was probably right, but I still left those books for later. I am glad that I did, because I'd go crazy waiting for the sequels. (Seven Sons is free on , so you can always download it and see for yourself if we are obsessed with this twisted story for a good reason.)Before Juliette Portland, t [...]

    10. My girl Nina and I will be doing a joint review of this book on the release day at The Literary Gossip Book Blog.In the meantime, here are some of my thoughts I'll be completely honest I didn't know what to expect when I first started reading "Cartel". I don't read blurbs [usually] and judging by the cover and what I knew of Dornan from reading the first of "Gypsy Brothers" books, I went into this thinking "Cartel" was going to be a dark a disturbing read.What I got was a love story. A forbidd [...]

    11. Rating : 4 ‘Forbidden Love’ StarsMy Views : Grrr that Ending was tooAbrupt If this hadn’t been an ARC I would have thought that I missed a page or something! I enjoyed this one as much as one can enjoy a book on sex-slaves! However, there are many issues that weren’t tackled in this one and I can feel that they are going to bringdisasterin the next book. Style of writing : Stunning!I loved the flow in the writing and the emotions that it brought out in me. The author didn’t restraint h [...]

    12. Wow! I freakin loved this story and I'm sooooo glad that there are two more books about Mariana and Dornan! I have had this series on my TBR for a while and I am kicking myself that I haven't read it sooner! What I liked most about this story is that it was very unpredictable! Lots of twists and turns I wasn't expecting throughout and kept me highly entertained! I'm not sure how Lili was able to create such a lovable villain but somehow she did! I would recommend this series to anyone who enjoys [...]

    13. Live -> amzn/1y6hc5sYES! A book where two hardcore worlds, cartel and motorcycle club (mc), come together to make for a dark and gritty read. Mariana has volunteered herself to the cartel to pay for her father’s debt. Her sacrifice spares her family from a gruesome death. When she gave her life for her families she knew her fate… being a sex slave until she’s finally brutally murdered by her “owner.” The plot really accelerates when the cartel delivers Mariana to the mc. Dornan is t [...]

    14. ***4 "(Un-)Willing Captive" stars***I'm flirting with "Gypsy Brothers" series for very long time, but to be totally honest with you, i was afraid to read them And when NetGalley add the Cartel series, I was so exciting because i saw it as a way to read both series since this one is the prequel!!!Damn, this book was a little bit disturbing because it had to do with delicate matters, but i really enjoyed it and i can't wait to read all the series, plus the Gypsy Brothers since they are connecting [...]

    15. 4.5 'I like your blood' StarsThis book disturbed me. Not because it's dark no, I enjoy dark reads and have read other books that are more violent and messed up I found this one disturbing because of my own reaction to the messed up violence. Because, even though I was probably supposed to be disgusted by the abuse and manipulation driving our main couple, I was actually kind of turned on & found myself routing for them to get together and fall in love. I wanted so badly to see some sliver [...]

    16. CartelCartel, #1Lili St. GermainCartel is the prequel to St.Germain's Gypsy Brothers series. It's about a girl who was given as a payment for his father's debtsDornan is the VP of Gypsy Brothers & is known for his calculated cruelty. But what I’ve seen so far is more like a human side of Dornan… Yes Dornan dark in this book, but nothing compare to the soulless man we meet in the Gypsy Brothers series"Remember? This isn't a fairytale. I'm not your hero, Ana.Nobody is.Nobody is coming to s [...]

    18. Find all of my reviews at: 52bookminimum/It’s my first 1 Star of the year!!!! You were probably starting to wonder if I had become a pod person or some such, to which I say . . . . Just kidding. Say no to drugs, kids.You might be curious now that I’m a lover of the pornies, how exactly one earns a solo twinkle-twinkle. If you follow my reviews it’s pretty obvious that I can overlook a lot of things when it comes to stories about hidin’ the ol’ salami. In the past I’ve proven I can be [...]

    19. 4 stars! "Remember? This isn't a fairytale. I'm not your hero, Ana.Nobody is.Nobody is coming to save you." Cartel is a prequel (of sorts) to the intense Gypsy Brothers saga. In this series we are able to get a better look at the notoriously evil, Dornan, before he became president of the MC, and when he stumbled into love.The Il Sangue Cartel is ran by a devious man, Emilio Ross. Nineteen year old, Mariana Rodriguez is very much aware of the man as her father does business with him. When a coca [...]

    20. ARC provided by publishers in exchange of honest reviewWowI am utterly breathless, captivated and amazed in this wickedly raw, dark, brilliant and intense book that Lili St. Germain has taken me on in her newest release Cartel. It was definitely one of the most raw, violent, dark and gritty books that I have read and I absolutely loved it. I am slapping my forehead as to why I haven’t read any of her books sooner. Ms. Lili has now my full undivided attention with her brilliant storytelling and [...]

    21. I loved this dark jewel!! Now on SALE on US (jan 18 2016) -> amzn/B00KHHF03I I loved the “Gypsy Brothers” series so much but I still have to read the conclusion “Zero Hour”. When I read that there would be a series on Dornan and Mariana I wasn’t sure how I felt about that. As probably most of you, I couldn’t see why I would ever want to read Dornan’s story… But I remained intrigued and when I saw the opportunity to request “Kingpin” for review I just went for it!This is t [...]

    22. ★Complimentary Copy provided by the author in exchange for an honest review★TITLE: CartelSERIES: (Cartel, #1) AUTHOR: Lili St. Germain GENRE: Contemporary RomanceRELEASE DATE: January 27th, 2015MY RATING: ★★★★A SHEEP IN WOLFS CLOTHINGI struggled on what to rate this, I'm so used to Lili St. Germain giving us the dark, gritty stomach churning walk away from your device kind of reads, this for me was too mellow, it had elements of grittiness but nothing like what you expect from this a [...]

    23. ☆ I received an ARC via the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thank you! ! ☆3.5 stars!!I guess I had too many high expectations when it came to Cartel. I’m not prepping you readers into thinking it’s a bad read because it’s not, I just thought it would have a much edgier, grittier, and darker feeling much like Gypsy Brother’s series. It was more of a sugared- down version-prequel, I guess you could say.Over all, I did like this first installment of the Cartel series. While [...]

    24. I'm kind of confused. I looked at the blurb for book #2 and it's supposed to be Marianna and Dornan's book. We're getting a book about a gang rapist? =/ no me gustaUpdate: author has mentioned to me that it's lot being classified as romance. This works much better for me. As long as his character is not being romanticized I am fine with reading it.

    25. This novel left me aching, hurting, longing, hoping and wanting for more.I started reading this book with theGypsy Brothers series in the back of my mind hating Emilio and Dornan with every fiber of my being.Marianna I may have hated her sassy mouth spitting fire at times, but I admire her braveness. And how she used her intelligence and herself to save her family and to survive.“I was somebody else.Somebody who did whatever it took to ensure she survived.Blood and violence and fucking and pai [...]

    26. I don't read this kind of book. I've never read this kind of book. Look at the cover, for Pete's sake. This is not me. I'm hard core dark thriller, science fiction, occasional mystery. So when my friend at Harper Collins handed me the sample of this book, which was about 150 pages of 300, I asked her what she expected me to do with it? Use it as a coaster.Here's the type of dialogue in the book:So I designated it to read-in-between-television-shows in the commercials, so that I didn't waste any [...]

    27. So, I'm confused If this is about Marianna & Dornan & John Why would I read something knowing the end of them? Yes, I'm sure that the story must be fascinating but I'm puzzled about the POV and the ending Do not read if you haven't read the Gypsy series. It will spoil Cartel for you! (view spoiler)[ If this is written from Marianna's POV, is it going to end with her death? It will only make sense if the POVS are also from the other men, but still John also dies I wouldn't torture myself [...]

    28. Review: SurjFacebook: facebook/TheHopelessRTSU: tsu/HopelessRomanticsBlog: thehopelessromanticsbookblog.bFor those of you who read Lili St Germain's "Gypsy brothers Series," you'll have already made your acquaintance with a certain Mr Dornan Ross. And the chances are, you despised him from the minute you met him in the first book until you parted ways in "One love." Yup, I don't know anyone who felt an ounce of anything positive towards this man because he was (well and truly) a monster of the w [...]

    29. FIVE THRILLING STARS*****(ARC kindly provided by the author in exchange for an honest review)Fire burning plot, complex characters and a decadent writing style. This book is the perfect start to a fiery trilogy that promises, and delivers pure thrill. Loved it!!!Mariana is a nineteen year old Colombian girl, who's father works for the most powerful drug Cartel in the world. She grew up in the throes of violence, guns and despair. Her father, a drunk with a gambling problem has gone too far this [...]

    30. A wild ride with masterful writing that pulls you in and holds you in its grip until the very last page. Dark and gritty with powerful emotions and conflict.I contemplated my sanity for loving a character as dark as Dornan. But I did. I didn't know him from the Gyspy Brothers series, all I know is what I’ve read in Cartel and I fell for him. Dornan has an intense inner battle—having to be the man he is supposed to be for his father, a cruel, harsh man who ruthlessly kills and the compassiona [...]
