This was a short read compare to this author’s others books. But it definitely still had that mob boss that it’s all alpha, all aggressive and falls hard for the woman he loves. So it’s definitely a must read book.
Amazing story from Nikita Slater. Loved Louis and Lena’s story. Dark and gritty. Definitely a must read.
Lena and Luis have a common denominator, Manuel, Luis’ father and Lena’s supposed arm candy. Luis does not like her and this begins their tumultuous relationship.
Nikita Slater’s books always happily provide the reader with Alpha men and the women who can handle them. Her stories always entertain and make the reader wanting more!
This book was a little dark for me and it brought me out of my comfort zone but I still loved it because of the amazing characters.
Luis and Lena are both part of a cruel world that deals with its own form of justice. It’s definitely difficult to differentiate between loyal friends and ruthless enemies. Your family might even turn on you at any time. So, I understand why Luis distrusted Lena so much in the beginning.
However, their attraction for each other was palpable and it could not be denied. They fall for each other in quite an unconventional way, defying tradition in a harsh world for the sake of love.
Who does not love a delicious dark Mafia story!!! This story was everything from bullying, murder and love. What more could a girl ask for. I feel in love with the characters from the start. Lena and Luis is a mafia power couple. Loved it!!!! Fantastic read
Luis is a male lead that doesn’t have any softness to him so don’t expect any. He was ruthless when it came to getting answers and revenge. Lena is a survivor that prevailed with the options available to her. Some of the scenes were a little intense this is a dark romance after all. Good storyline, red-hot chemistry between this couple, and a happy ending with an epilogue makes me one very satisfied reader!
I loved this one! It was dark and suspenseful and fast paced! Loved all the characters! My only complaint is that I was left wanting more! I hope she continues this storyline, I’d love to have more!
I loved this! I could feel the different strong emotions between the characters and loved the twists and turns it took! Great read!
Kiss of the Cartel
It’s always a good day, when a Nikita Slater book releases!
This was a fantastic short read and is definitely on my “to be read again” shelf. We have beautifully flawed characters, tight and well developed intrigue, a forward moving plot, well developed character growth interactions and and hawt smexy times. Everything the reader has learned to expect from this author.
As much as I adore her non-mafia books, when a mafia title releases the anticipation while my kindle downloads feels like my childhood Christmas Eve.
Kudos! Another amazing addition to this authors works -and highly recommended!
I had the extreme pleasure of receiving copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion. And hoo-doggy, it was fantastic!!
Kiss of the Cartel is a same dish but different in flavor of story from the author.
If you are familiar with her books, you’d easily know that this author loves writing troubled characters with an enemies to lovers touch. This one is no different but she topped the intensity with this book!
This book has an added hate-to-love romance that the author got you hooked in her writing in the first place. Both main characters played their role perfectly. Luis, a heir of a cartel empire, resents Lena and don’t understand what he really feels towards her. Lena, a personal and lethal bodyguard of Manuel, Luis’ father, has no idea how to deal with Luis’ hate against her.
This two will collide and burn but Nikita Slater won’t disappoint you.
*Trigger warnings may apply
This dark enemies to lovers story has everything you could ever want. Lies, conspiracy, betrayal, blood shed, and killer chemistry. It’s fast paced and addictive and you won’t want to put it down until you know how it ends. Another 5 star must read by this amazing author.
This novella packs a lot into these few pages…it didn’t feel like a novella while reading, but I’m always left wanting more Nikita Slater words! It doesn’t matter how many pages she writes I love getting lost in her stories.
Angry, murderous, humiliation, beautiful, lethal, rage, passion, respect, family, loyalty, revenge and terror are just a few of the emotions I felt while reading. Part of the storyline that I feel in love with would have never captured my soul had it been placed in another book…usually this quick, type of storyline doesn’t sit well with me, but it actually made me fall more in love with the characters the way Nikita took us on their journey. However…she did leave us wondering. I hope this isn’t the end of Luis.
Fabulous Story 5 Stars…
Fast-paced, lots of emotions, everything you could want in a book, good-looking Cartel son and gorgeous female body guard. This book has it all. Lena, is a bodyguard to Manuel, who had found her in a whorehouse where she was kept. Luis, his son, is spiteful, and always angry with her. It kept me on the edge the entire book! I highly recommend you read it today, you will love it!
Captivating Dark and Twisted Love Story!
This is a fantastic, intense and thrilling dark romance. The intensity of each characters emotions, whether it was love or hate, was intensely thrilling and kept me totally captivated and invested with the story. This book has everything a dark romance lover is looking for – action, suspense, intrigue, hate, loathing and eventually steaminess and love. This one definitely plays with your emotions right from chapter one, so prepare to go on an emotional roller coaster ride.
