BOOK REVIEW: Violent Delights by Jessica Hawkins


VIOLENT DELIGHTS BY JESSICA HAWKINS
(White Monarch, #1)

AMAZON | B & N | KOBO



TWO BROTHERS.
TWO BETRAYALS.
ONE EPIC BATTLE.
WHO WILL COME OUT ON TOP?

Natalia is the daughter of one of the most powerful drug lords in Mexico. When her mother is killed by someone the family trusted, her father sends her off to live in the relative safety of California.


"I had run away from all this... but the devil still tempted that stupid little girl. She knew better than most what could come of that."


Natalia has managed to extract herself from the family business over the years, but she quickly becomes a pawn in a war of retribution while visiting her father for the Easter holiday. A war between two brothers -- Cristiano and Diego de la Rosa. 



VIOLENT DELIGHTS is told from Natalia's point of view with the exception of two chapters--one for each brother. I don't typically enjoy love triangles, but something about this story sucked me in from the very beginning.



Which brother is the real monster?
Which brother should she fear?
I simply cannot wait to find out.


"You're looking for a monster, and you found one in me. But I'm not the one you should fear. Just remember--no monster thinks of himself that way. He's just living by a different code than yours."



(Side note: I'd love to know how to get myself on the ARC list for this series --or any of Hawkins work, actually! If you are one of the lucky few who know how, please please please share it with me.)

FINAL RATING: 💜💜💜💜💜
