BLOG TOUR: Violent Triumphs by Jessica Hawkins

Book: Violent Triumphs

Series: White Monarch #3

Author: Jessica Hawkins

Release date: 12 November 2019

Main characters: Natalia de la Rosa, beloved daughter of cartel kingpin Costa Cruz and Cristiano’s conflicted wife, Cristiano de la Rosa, her husband and leader of the Calavera cartel.

Blurb:

I’ve become a queen to the forsaken, a leader to thieves, and the wife of a man who instills fear in all who cross his path. He was the husband I didn’t want. Now, I can’t fathom life without my king.

I should’ve been ready for anything. Like the caterpillar that feeds on poison during metamorphosis, I was raised in the dangerous world of cartel crime. But nothing could’ve prepared me for Cristiano de la Rosa, his brother’s poison, or the Calavera cartel.

This is still a story about a love strong enough to topple households, unite enemies, and divide brothers. Resilient enough to bring down those who would try to destroy it . . . and selfless enough to make the ultimate sacrifice.

But I was warned, and so were you. Death’s day always comes. This time, it will find what was once a caterpillar is now a butterfly—and hell hath no fury like the White Monarch.

Why you should read it: Oh my goodness! This book! Jessica H made us wait until it was just right and I can see now just how worth the wait was! This book picks up where Violent Ends left off, which is just as well as I was truly going off my head at the ending of book 2! The plot, pace and action in Violent Triumphs was high octane all the way. There were lots and lots of scenes to enjoy featuring Natalia and Cristiano – seeing them treat each other with care and seeing them sort through their feelings for each other was delicious. I loved every minute. Natalia has no choice but to grow up in this book – she becomes strong and calculating and every bit the queen of the underworld. The chemistry between Natalia and Cristiano – ooh lawd! Off the charts and then some. Seeing them give in to their attraction completely – finally – was so satisfying. I wanted to shout AT LAST! Technically, I really enjoyed the mix of Spanish and English in the text – it felt natural and also correct. No Google translate here. The book was also full of beautiful dialogue, both poetic and romantic and I could not get enough.

What you may not like: I really don’t know what you’d dislike in this story if you’ve been following and enjoying the series. It closed the plot lines and provided a delightful conclusion to a very exciting series.

Rating: 5/5 for a seriously sexy, smart and satisfying story about cartels, honour and love. I totally inhaled it and can’t recommend it more.
