    Intense. Action packed. Amazing

    I'm so happy and super beyond excited for the rest of this series. This book was an amazing introduction of all the characters. Many characters and especially Diego, Natalia and Cristiano. I did NOT expect what I got from this story #Great Yes, I was stoked to read it and once I found myself in their world I couldn't turn away. The setting in Mexico was a nice change. Jessica Hawkins IMO did an amazing job with the Spanish that is used throughout. QUOTE ~ “Once a man gets a taste of power, his need for it surpasses hunger. It’s a sickness that demands more.” ~ ~ This book has Excitement. Action. Betrayal. Loyalty. Deception. AND LOVE the blind kind. QUOTE ~ I give honesty where I get it. You’ll find me dead before you find me a liar.” ~ ~ QUOTE ~ “This is a game, Natalia, and you have to play— or you’ll lose. Learn your lesson should someone care enough to teach you. And never doubt that you are a prize to hold tight.” ~ ~ I CANNOT WAIT FOR BOOK 2

    Phenomenal Read!

    Jessica Hawkins is one of my favorite authors who never fails to disappoint! This is book 1 in the White Monarch Trilogy. It has intrigue, mystery,slow burn, tension, power plays, deception, tested loyalties, doubt, confusion, love and a level of passion that’s building...If that doesn’t make you want to read this amazing story then I don’t know what will! I really don’t want to spoil this by giving away anymore! You really just have to read it to learn that it’s more than a cartel way of life (Not mafia). It’s simply fascinating! Can’t wait for book 2!

    A Dark & Intense Start To This Series

    Wow!! Ok. To start this is book one of a trilogy, so yes, there will be a cliffhanger and I am not going to lie, it's a stunner! That all being said, this series gets off to one heck of a start. Dark, emotional and intense, this book introduces you to the characters and the story starts to unfold. With a plot that features Mexican Cartels , an unhappy Mafia Princess and brothers that are enemies, you know that you better "buckle up", because things are going to get gritty, raw, intense, emotional, steamy and dangerous! I'm already fully invested in Cristiano, Natalia and Diego's story and need more right now!

    Fantastic Start to a new series!

    Holy cow. I hate cliffhangers. HATE them....so I need to really love an Author and trust them if I know I'm getting into something that could end with a cliffhanger. Fortunately for me, I love and trust Jessica Hawkins because let me tell you-this book was great. If you read this blurb and think it's going to be mafia heavy and hesitate against reading it-I urge you to try it. This takes a different look at that kind of book. I mean, there's families and cartels but it wasn't overwhelming for a reader like me. These characters? They were amazing. The set up of the dynamics between them absolutely works. I am not going to spoil anything, but I've picked a side in this triangle already. It wasn't an easy decision-because I can understand multiple sides here-but it's going to take a lot for me to switch sides in this case! I'm anxious to see what these characters will get up to next. Jessica Hawkins took a topic I wasn't sure I'd love and pulled me right into the story. I was there with these characters and I felt for them. That's just talent right there. The writing flowed, the pacing really worked for me. The ending of this book-even though I somewhat anticipated it-had me saying wow. Just wow. I'm not one to wish time away usually...but I'm ready for June so I can see what happens next in this series. Books like this are difficult to review without spoiling-and spoilers are no fun. But I definitely enjoyed this book and would recommend it.

    A breathtaking, thrilling and spellbinding story.

    How much I LOVE this book! I'm astonished on the author's ability to craft this intricate story, it's just incredible how you are capable of building the Violent Delights world in your mind through every detail the author carefully put into the storyline. From moment one I was easily lured in by the many questions that came to mind with just the first few pages. I was like a kid in a candystore, dying to taste every bit of the sweet temptation that surrounded me as I immersed myself deeper and deeper into the cartel world. I was super curious about every event that took place in the Violent Delights timeline, that shaped every trait of each of the characters personalities. Natalia, Diego and Cristiano will make you fall in love with them so deep that even when you should probably hate them, or at the very least, be mad at them, you'll do it passionately for a moment or a bit longer but it won't destroy the love you feel for them, it will probably just put a dent on it. From the layered characters to the complex build up and development in their relationships and how the author beautifully weaves the story with every string of words she puts in it, you'll find out how quickly this one will captivate your attention and how gladly you will give yourself to the angst, the suspense and the sensuality of it. A breathtaking, thrilling and spellbinding story.
