From Amazon.com:

For Luisa Chavez, a twenty-three year old former beauty queen, a better life has always been just out of her reach. Sure, she’s had men at her feet since she was a young teenager but she’s never had the one thing she’s craved – security. Having grown up in near poverty, her waitressing job in Cabo San Lucas can barely let her take care of herself, let alone her ailing parents. Every day is another unwanted advance, every day is a struggle to survive. 

When Salvador Reyes, the depraved leader of a major Mexican cartel, takes an interest in her, Luisa is presented with an opportunity she can’t afford to pass up. She’ll become Salvador’s wife and exchange her freedom and body for a life of riches – riches she can bestow upon her deserving parents. But Luisa quickly finds out that even the finest wines and jewels can’t undo the ugliness in her marriage, nor the never-ending violence that threatens her every move. 

Soon, Luisa is looking for an escape, a way out of the carefully controlled life she’s leading. She finally gets her wish in the worst way possible. 

As it is, being the wife of Salvador makes her an ideal target for rival cartels and there’s one particular man who needs Luisa as part of his cartel’s expansion. One particular man whose quest for power has destroyed lives, slit throats and gotten him out of an American prison. One particular man who will stop at nothing until he gets what he wants. 

That man is Javier Bernal. And he wants Luisa. He wants to take her, keep her, ruin her. 

Unless she ruins him first. 

Some men were born to create empires, some women were meant to be queen. 

Foxy's Review:


Seriously, ladies, this book is why we read about dirty men. Javier is a leader in the Mexican cartel where he makes the rules. 

As I was reading DIRTY ANGELS I kept thinking back to the quote that followed the warning at the beginning of the book:

As far as the women are concerned, there is a saying: “If I want you, I will have you, for better or worse. If I can’t have you one way, I’ll have you another way. And if I can’t have you, no one will have you, that will be the end of you, and there you will be buried. Simple.”-El Sicario

*shivers* Luisa, a former beauty queen, is caught in the middle of two feuding cartels. She’s married to the leader of the largest cartel. A wicked man who has no regard for women as human beings. Through a series of events Luisa ends up in the hands of Javier who is looking to gain some power from her husband. As a pawn in their battle, Luisa, proves she is no doormat in this war. When you play with the Mexican cartel…you win, or you die.

“Because life is a game and we’re all just trading cards. We play the right hand to get ahead. Death stops the game.”

Karina Halle writes books like they were made to be on the big screen. A blockbuster no doubt. The story grips you from the first few pages and keeps you on the edge of your seat until the very end. This blockbuster is the most epic, action packed, love story with a Romeo and Juliet twist in the Mexican drug cartel.Dirty Angels is one of my favorite books, so far, for 2014! 

If loving, Javier, is wrong than I don’t want to be right!

A devil and an angel.
