“She is mine.” Three words from two different men.
A life, future, and love I don’t get to choose.

In the de la Rosa family, old grudges run deeper than loyalty, and betrayal is a three-letter word: war. But this feud isn’t between enemies. It’s between brothers. And I’m the prize.

I was born a princess among criminals. An untouchable among thieves. Heiress t 
o a life others have killed for, and one I’d do anything to escape. I vowed not to leave without Diego, my first love and best friend, but if his ruthless brother has his way, I won’t leave at all. Cristiano de la Rosa is a man as big and bold as his legend. Once upon a time, he was our cartel’s best soldier . . . until he became my family’s worst enemy.
A man like Cristiano will bend fate to his will to get what he wants. Even if it means dragging me to hell—and tearing me from his brother’s arms.

descriptiondescriptionI signed up for an early copy of this book for two reasons. One, Jessica Hawkins is a new “to me” author, and I have set a challenge for myself this year to read many more “new” or new “to me” authors. Two, I also thought this would be a good book for my “stepping out” challenge since I am not a fan of love triangles (nor trilogies if I am being honest). Two birds with one stone as they say. (lol)
description Needless to say, I wasn’t sure what I was getting myself into and I’d be lying if I didn’t say I was a little nervous. (lol) However, luck was on my side because I LOVED every minute of this book. I will not get into too many details because there are still two more books to go and I’ll save the longer more in-depth review for when the story has reached its’ conclusion.  What I will say is that this was a fantastically well-written book. It was well paced and a relatively short read (three hours). It is told mostly from Natalia’s POV with one chapter each from Cristiano and Diego. The plot was super engaging and set the stage for an epic battle between two brothers. All three of the main characters are incredibly intriguing. However, I have a HUGE favorite and I will be one UNHAPPY camper if Natalia doesn’t end up with him…my reaction may involve (but not limited to) swearing and tablet throwing…just saying. Last, we end on a WHOPPER of a cliffhanger that will make you want to get your grubby hands on book two ASAP.So yea, not much left to say. I loved it. I recommend it. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
