    "Diamond legacy"

    This story was a great way to show how the Diamond legacy started. It was a perfect fix for a Cartel junkie like me!

    Story
    "Always love Carter"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes and no
    Yes because it was a good story. I liked hearing how Carter got started.
    no because their stories are always too short.


    What other book might you compare Carter Diamond: Before the Cartel He Stood Alone to and why?

    The men from the Bitch Series.


    Have you listened to any of Cary Hite’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    They are all the about the same. I like him. sometimes I don't like the way he reads for women but I like him.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It was only a little over 2 hours. Not a problem
    It seems to me like they try to squeeze all the cash they can out of the readers. That's why I stop purchasing books by Ashley & JaQuais. But I love to listen to books and they were on sale

    "wonderful"

    It was good. I like this author. wish it came in paperback. I prefer reading then having a narrator trying to change their voice to sound like characters.

    I loved hearing about Carter (The Father) but it was too short. It was great to hear how Cater got to FL
