New Release & Review- Violent Delights by Jessica Hawkins

Title: Violent Delights
Series: White Monarch #1
Author: Jessica Hawkins
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 19, 2019


“She is
mine.” Three words from two different men.
A life, future,
and love I don’t get to choose.
In the de la Rosa family, old grudges run deeper than loyalty, and
betrayal is a three-letter word: war. But this feud isn’t between enemies. It’s
between brothers. And I’m the prize.
I was born a princess among criminals. An untouchable among thieves.
Heiress to a life others have killed for, and one I’d do anything to escape. I
vowed not to leave without Diego, my first love and best friend, but if his
ruthless brother has his way, I won’t leave at all. Cristiano de la Rosa is a
man as big and bold as his legend. Once upon a time, he was our cartel’s best
soldier . . . until he became my family’s worst enemy.
A man like Cristiano will bend fate to his will to get what he wants.
Even if it means dragging me to hell—and tearing me from his brother’s arms.
Jessica’s Review

I wasn’t really sure what I was getting into when I started this book but o did enjoy it. It was told mainly from the heroines POV and while I understand that she was young, I also felt like Natalia was a little naïve. I wanted her to be stronger with the things she has went though and o really hope as this series continues she will grow and her character will flourish.

We have two main guys in this book but I wouldn’t classify it as a love triangle. It was a lot more complicated then that. Both guys had their own personality and I know who I like over the other. It’s up to each reader to pick a side, and that a fun part for me.

This was a fresh take on the Mexican cartel and there were some twists I didn’t see coming. It felt very planned out and while it ends with a cliffhanger, it wasn’t as bad as I felt that it could be. So for that I am grateful. I do look forward to what’s going to happen with these characters after how the author ended it. No spoilers coming from me but I really do look forward to reading more when the time comes. 4 stars #2OCCJD
