New Release + Review! Violent Ends by Jessica Hawkins

Title: Violent Ends
Series: White Monarch #2
Author: Jessica Hawkins
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 18, 2019


I had a life, love, and future to give.
Until my enemy took a wife.

The devil has a name, and it’s Cristiano de la Rosa. On my wedding day, he was the last man I expected to see standing at the altar. He wants to make me his queen. His brother wants to rescue his princess.

Getting Cristiano to lose control becomes the name of the game, and the stakes are life and death. But as truth and lies blur, loyalty is tested, and our chemistry threatens to reach the melting point, the prize grows less clear. Either freedom no longer means what I think it does, or Cristiano is as devious as everyone says, and he’s mastered the art of playing my mind.

All I know for certain is that nothing is certain. And all you need to know? This is a love story.
But even love stories have to end.


Our Review!
Court: OK! So, to say that we've been waiting patiently for this book might be a slight exaggeration on the patience part...but once we got it I am telling you right now we absolutely DEVOURED this book. The first one really sucked us in and this one almost killed me with how good it was! Shel: Yes. I'm deceased. Like I'm typing this from heaven because Violent Ends just killed me dead. GAHHHHH.

Court: Natalia is slowly becoming someone who isn't like an ostrich with her head in the sand...and begrudgingly she owes some of that to a certain someone. She was sheltered from so much, and really thought she knew everything about what motivated certain people in our lovely story...so now I really enjoy her figuring out that she just might not know everything she thinks she does! HOWEVER, and I repeat...however, she also is becoming someone who is exuding strength and perspective in a world where there isn't any and it helped make this book a wildly exciting ride. Shel: Natalia took a ride on the struggle bus in this one. She really wanted to hold on to what she'd been told was true about Cristiano and she desperately needed to belief that what she knew was true because otherwise years and years of hatred would have to change and she was not ready to give up the fight against him. It's like her hatred of him fueled her and if he took away that fuel, then what?! So as she discovered more, two things happened--she had to consider some things she'd never thought she'd have to consider and she had to grower stronger than she thought possible. I loved that Cristiano is pushing her and opening her eyes to things and that he appears to be more than meets the eye.

Court: These covers...Jessica Hawkins writing...these characters...the tease...oh, the tease! Have we ever been teased by the slow burn quite as much as this book? I am not sure, but I think you should read it as soon as you possibly can (start with book 1...that is a must!) because it is not to be missed. There is something about the insane world of cartels and drugs and secrets that entices us (in book form only, am I right? Shel: yep. Totally right.) and we cannot get enough. I can't wait for the next book in this series to come out! We will try to be waiting patiently...try, being the operative word!  Shel: Look Jessica Hawkins is really great at what she does and I love how she's making monsters into angels and angels into monsters and killing me with her slow burn and creating all sorts of suspicions and intrigue and I cannot believe we have to wait until forfreakingever to get the next book but I will somehow deal with it. Get lost in this series, y'all; it's a fun escape.
