    Story
    "Just bad"
    Would you ever listen to anything by Ashley & JaQuavis again?

    No


    What does Cary Hite bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He's awesome. He does his thing.


    What character would you cut from The Cartel 2: Tale of the Murda Mamas?

    The crazy man who kidnapped Breeze.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Story
    "I don't know whether to be happy or mad?"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, overall it was a good story and will narrorated


    If you’ve listened to books by Ashley & JaQuavis before, how does this one compare?

    Murderville is better, but this is okay.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Carter, Mecca, and Zyir killing Matee


    Who was the most memorable character of The Cartel 2: Tale of the Murda Mamas and why?

    Miamor, it was really nice to hear her back story.


    Any additional comments?

    Like my title says I don't know whether to be happy about the Cartel 3 or mad at the ending of the Cartel 2 . I feel like the story ended specifically so we can spend our money on the Cartel 3 to see how it really ends. While a smart move on the authors part, I still feel lied too.

    "Love it..."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes, it's a good follow-up to the 1st one


    Would you recommend The Cartel 2: Tale of the Murda Mamas to your friends? Why or why not?

    Would probably refer to a friend


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Story
    "I'm hooked on the Cartel saga!"

    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.

    "Wonderful Sequel!"
    Would you listen to The Cartel 2: Tale of the Murda Mamas again? Why?

    Yes. There were so many hidden treasures in this read that I missed the first time around.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I LOVED Murder in this book. He had such a tender side towards Mi Amor and her sister.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I don't want to give away the story, but I loved the action in this book. There was so much happening in the lives of all of the characters. I loved how they bring all of the individual events together and you get to see each characters perspective.


    If you could take any character from The Cartel 2: Tale of the Murda Mamas out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Carter definately. His character is so sexy. That is if you like bosses!

    Story
    "Very Different"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Cartel 2: Tale of the Murda Mamas to be better than the print version?

    This was such a surprise in a story. To tell an entire story and all it was, was a dream of a woman who was about to be killed. I loved it a very good plot twist


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Cartel 2: Tale of the Murda Mamas?

    The whole story, thinking this person was dead and wasn't.


    What does Cary Hite bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I liked how the story was read, it kept me on my toes, once the story was over I could not wait for the next one.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes I did. Both I was like oh my God.... and for it all to be a dream just turned me around to dammit, now I still got to find out what happen, but it also gave me that dam that was a good plot, they really had me going.


    Any additional comments?

    Just keep writing them, I even went all the way to the Cartel 4, now waiting on 5. This needs to be a movie or a short mini series or something. I truly like these audio books and cannot wait to get another. Also some of the authors older books like the murda mama's need to be on audio books.

    "Oh MY GOD! WOW"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Cartel 2: Tale of the Murda Mamas to be better than the print version?

    I have not experienced the text version (I so don't have time in my schedule right now for actually sitting with a book in hand) but this was phenomenal!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The twists and turns, the truth of it, the way I could relate to it was amazing. I no devil or angel but I have been through things in my life and come from places that made this book so believable for me.


    What does Cary Hite bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He was awesome, he is consistent in the way he portrays the characters and although having a variation of narrators is cool he is a great voice over actor.


    If you could rename The Cartel 2: Tale of the Murda Mamas, what would you call it?

    I would call it, It Was All a Dream after a Biggie song lyric LOL


    Any additional comments?

    This book had me about to cry so many times it's crazy, I gasped like I was actually watching a movie, and I cannot wait to buy the next book, or 2 LOL.
