The book was great until the end... I felt like I wasted hours of my life that I will never get back... Debating whether I should purchase #3 or not...
LIFE just happens that way sometimes!
Hearing the story about the Murder Mama's and how they came about was very interesting listen. The thing I liked the most was how the author portrayed Miamor and how the challenge in her childhood turned her into the murder that she became.
If you have ever held a gun in the face of danger then you know the thought process that occurs before pulling a trigger, either shoot or be shot. Most people would hesitate before just shooting but sometime that last thought is the difference between life and death. The scene that I remember the most was the situation where Miamor almost died at the hands of one of her targets.
My favorite character in the book was Murder and how he loved two women that happened to be sisters but because of his loyalty to Anissa he didn't give into his minds urges. The major theme in this book to me was LOYALTY and that's what makes the book a great one because it shows so many different approaches to the theme by the characters (either they were loyal or disloyal), it also shows that you can't underestimate people and also helps the readers realize people are never who they portray to be. The true reality of the book is what blows me away and left me speechless that's why I gave it 3 stars. You won't believe this one.
He's awesome. He does his thing.
The crazy man who kidnapped Breeze.
So many things don't make sense. Like it was 6 months later and Breeze is just now waking up in the man's house. What was she doing for 6 months? Was she in a coma? What? Why wasn't the Grandfather who was the actual Cartel the main character in the book? It was bad.
Yes, it's a good follow-up to the 1st one
Would probably refer to a friend
Liked the continuation of the story line, but didn't care much for how the Murda Mamas came to be. I would have preferred the storyline to continue with the Cartel and the Diamond family.
Finding out that Breeze was alive, getting to know Carter, and Mecca and learning the history of the Murda Mamas from Miamor really kept me going. Even though Miamor gets a taste of what she serves I was still rooting for her and Carter. And on top of that Murder comes home looking for his woman. I was exalted with anticipation ... and then came the twist at the end. I really didn't see this coming.
I was in a hurry to get to Cartel 3.
Coming from someone who's read EVERY Ashley Antoinette AND Ashley and Jaquavis novel this is by far THEE worst! Pleaseeee don't ever waste 7 and a half hours of my life that I'll never get back again!!!!! SKIP PART 2 AND GO STRAIGHT TO 3 PLEASE TRUST ME !
This book was a disappointing follow up to the first book. Skipping this one and going straight into the 3rd wouldn't be a bad idea. Cary is AWESOME as a reader, but the story is a letdown.
This book pissed me off sooooo bad that i LOVED IT!! 😂😂🙈 my head turned left and right as the dead came back to life with every turn of the page! It was GREAT!! This book was bomb!
The first book was great. However, it seems like they keep playing the same story out. Also, I thought it was extremely crazy the way it ended. I wish Mia had a more ruthless story. She had a rough childhood but that didn't really warrant the killer she is being portrayed as. I've read much better books.
