Publisher's Summary

When a Boeing 747 drops out of the sky with the men of the Cartel aboard, the women of the family have to step into their own. With the federal government on their heels and the family on the brink of destruction, a female dynasty is born.

After the government's case is thwarted, the ladies plan to take the family legit. They head west to establish a new endeavor, but with new territory come new problems. The Carter family name doesn't ring as loud as it did in Miami. It's a new set of gangsters and a new set of rules as the Cartel finds problems with an Arabic millionaire. Even as the new Cartel struggles to go legit, trouble always finds a way into the family's circle. Larceny, deceit, and murder are all in the cards.

The Cartel 5 is a pause-register thriller that promises to deliver. This mafia family tries to go corporate, but the streets won't let them. This is the rise of the female Cartel: La Bella Mafia.

OMG,,,,

Would you listen to The Cartel 5 again? Why?

Well I wouldn't say I'll listen to the Cartel 5 again. The only way that I would is to remember parts from Cartel 5 when I listen to the Cartel 6.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Cartel 5?

Well let's see, I like the part where Mia and Carter get's married before he takes his bid. I also like the part where Aries and Breeze came to an agreement about the roles they would play. I love how the ladies held there men down through the jailtime. Really though Mia, Fly Boogie. This lil young dude was obessed with her. Whatever Carter has planned for him in the next audio, I'm so ready to hear it, make it a good one Ashley and JaQuavis. Carter Jones better not die. I like what he said about if anybody have to die,it should be him, that's a real man moment. I like Monroe and his son's man talk moment. Monroe definately is a real stand up dude, he took his seat right beside Carter's bed. Zyir and Breeze, the newly weds, I love those two. I think their story line should be brought out more.

Which character – as performed by Cary Hite – was your favorite?

Of course my favorite character is Mia, murder momma. She held her man down. Even though Carter initiated a war by sleeping with Yasmine, that's a crazy chick, she just didn't know who Carter wife really was, why throw yourself at a man that doesn't really want you, know the difference between a booty call and love. Well I hope it was to die for, poor poor Yasmine. Carter, Carter, Carter stay away from the pretty daughters of your partners, why fall for the oldest trick in the book, even though I have mad respect for him doing it before he married Mia. But Mia Mia, what have you done, how are you going to get everybody out of this one. I like the way she just get right to the business, a bad bad murder momma. Mia what are you going to do with all these men, because only one can be Carter Jones, and what was the point of Murder coming back, kill him off already, he is a non factor.

Any additional comments?

Asyley and JaQuavis please do not make us wait 2 years for this book. You guys need to really get it together. Yes I was upset because I bought the book from Amazon and never got it. That was really messed up, when they finally send the book, I guess it will be someone's gift, since I have heard it already. When you're doing a series you shouldn't make your fans wait years for the next book. It was such a long wait, I could barely remember what happen in Cartel 4. That is not necessary to make your fans wait. You two are great authors, you will forever have fans. I would listen to every book you guys put out, just stop with these long waits. I'm not saying rush the books, it shouldn't take two years. Please hurry, I'm so excited.

Smh..not expected!

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Well I'll start off by saying this they had the kids ages all mixed up, it didn't really add up the ages of the kids, then the part where the women had went to Saudi Arabia to get there men the story just jumped right into that, one min they were in the limo next Mia More was in Carters bed. I thought my audio had skipped a chapter. Oh and why did they bring Murder back didn't he die in the other book??

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

This was awful compared to the other books they have wrote! I was very disappointed! I waiting so long for this book, I want my money back!

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

Carey Hite is Amazing as Always.

Did The Cartel 5 inspire you to do anything?

Not at all, well actually it inspired me to not want to read another book by Ashley & Jaquavis.

Any additional comments?

Why! Why was this book out out for? Was it just rushed because the fans wanted or maybe they should finally just end the Cartel with one last book. Don't get me wrong I love the Cartel series but this last book put a bad taste in my mouth I'm disappoint. My book club all had bad things to say about this book as well. Jesus Take The Wheel

DID'NT DISAPPOINT!

La Bella MAMA'S, wow I thought the murder mama's were bad, this new group of chicks ain't playing around, all I can say about book (5) is buyer beware, It was pretty hard not to listen to the entire audio in one day. I've purchased the entire series, and they were well worth the expense, Cary Hite narrated them all, and was the perfect voice behind each character. hope to hear more from the Carter's. great job.

LOVE IT!

Would you consider the audio edition of The Cartel 5 to be better than the print version?

YES! I'm hooked on the audio version...

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Cartel 5?

It's action packed and scandalous all at the same time.

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

No, I don't recall hearing him before.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

The Cartel On the Move!

Any additional comments?

Great listen and story line. Highly recommend!
