I really enjoyed this story. There were so many twists and so much deception going on, but it kept the pages turning. I had not read the first two books in the series, but I was not lost in this story as it covers the past enough to let you know what is going on. I did purchase the other two books prior to this one though so that I can understand the whole story. I’ve only read Blurred Red Lines so far, but I loved it as much as I did this one. I give this story a 4.5-star review and suggest that you buy this book and read it if you are a fan of Cartel, suspense, or stories with strong women who can hold their own with the deadly men they align themselves with.
