New Release + Review: Cartel Queen by Chelsea Camaron

Series: Almanza Duet #2

Author: Chelsea Camaron

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Release Date: April 19, 2018







I refuse to break at the hands of a man.

I am Mari Belle Dominguez.

Strong woman.

My situation made me his.

He’ll never really have me.

I’ll never let him hurt me again.

That is … until he claims more than my house, my body, and my life.

When Javier Almanza claims my heart, I’m no longer his cartel bitch.

No, I am the queen.

I thought she wasn’t ready for my world. I thought she needed my protection. I am Javier Almanza, kingpin with a woman who didn’t need a single thing from me, but my love.

The hardest fought wars are the biggest lessons learned. She was my lesson in forgiveness.

*You must read Cartel Bitch before Cartel Queen in order for this book to make sense. Thank you and happy reading. This is book two in the Almanza Crime Family Duet and a full-length romance. This is a dark, edge of your seat romantic suspense featuring an antihero so there is a level of violence inside that may not be suitable for some readers. This is not meant to be an actual depiction of life inside a Cartel but rather a work of fiction meant to entertain.




Julia’s 🎩🎩🎩🎩 hat review:
Cartel Queen is an explosive second half that will blow you away! We were left on pins and needles with tears streaming down our face with the first half. With Cartel Queen we get the closure we desperately needed. We start off exactly where we were left. Our hearts torn out. Now the need for vengeance fuels Javi and Mari. The need to avenge their daughter is their main focus. Yet it’s hard to hide old feelings, love being the main one.

The writing had me so caught up in this story that I was feeling bloodthirsty. I was feeling the pain of loss. Javi and Mari are both amazing and together even more so. I cried, laughed, swooned, fanned myself, screamed, raged with every moment Javi and Mari did.
