This week I’m jumping back to 2014. Kim from Reading in the Red Room and I buddy read Dirty Angels together. When Ms. Halle asked if we would like to arc read her book we both yelled, “YES!!!”  We’ve been a fan of Javier since we first met him in ‘On Every Street.’   OES is part of the Artist Trilogy.   

After we started reading this one Kim reminded me that Ms. Halle’s wedding was coming up.  She suggested we use Game of Thrones gifs because Ms. Halle is a fan of the show.  I was a little late to the game in doing the status updates with GoT but once Kim suggested it we had a blast finding them to match our statuses.  Kim’s status updates | my status updates

On June 13th, 2014, I read Dirty Angels by Karina Halle. Also if you want to read about an excerpt of Javier & Luisa’s first kiss check out a special Valentine post.

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.
