BOOK REVIEW: Violent Ends by Jessica Hawkins


This series is SO *&$@#! GOOD that I'm legit at a loss for words.

Violent Ends, the second of three books in the White Monarch series by Jessica Hawkins, is that nail-biting, page-turning, gripping-your-hair-out-of-frustrated-anticipation kind of good. Yeah, like I said... WOW!

Violent Ends picks right back up where Violent Delights left off (with my jaw on the floor). Natalia Cruz, the sheltered and na├»ve daughter of one of the most powerful drug lords in all of Mexico, has just been betrayed by the man that she loves. To protect her family and everyone she loves, Natalia sacrificed her future happiness and agreed to a wedding that felt more like a funeral. By accepting her role as the wife of a powerful cartel kingpin, she's now legally and spiritually bound to the one thing she so desperately wanted to escape.    

When Natalia finds that Cristiano is not at all the man she expected, she struggles to sort through warring emotions. As the lines continue to blur, Natalia isn't sure if she should fear or hate her husband, or if she should feel something else entirely. The only thing she does know is that she won't stop searching for the answers to her questions. 

There is so, so, so, so much that I loved about this book. The simmering heat. The power struggle. The witty banter. ALL. THE. FEELS. 

"I lost my breath at the sight of his ass. I could've flicked a quarter at it and ducked as it ricocheted right back at me. Smooth with bronze, concave cheeks, it had more definition than his top-of-the-line TVs."

But man... oh man! The cliff hanger is brutal.

I don't know how I'll survive the next few months without knowing what happens. I can only hope and pray, and cross my fingers and toes, that the title of book number three, Violent Triumphs, is a sign that the end to this series is a triumphant one. 


Trust me, you need this book.
