I had a life, love, and future to give.

Stumped. For. Words!!! You can knock me down with a feather and give me hammer so I can knock the traitors to a pulp!! Jessica chokes you with a sensational story that will send a shiver up your spine
Gawwwwd Calavera Cartel is rubbing off on me. NOTHING s what it seems which is a revelation for me and Natalia De La Rosa. ALL men in her life are trading her for power. ALL of them, I was so pissed, but kudos to her, this pupa is morphing into a steel spine Monarch Butterfly. Her voice is not heard

OMGGGGGGGGGGGG. I. CAN'T. FREAKING. BREATHE!

That ending...

NO WORDS.

I seriously don't know what to do with myself right now. I'm reeling, gasping, freaking the fuck out. How am I supposed to survive until Violent Triumphs? How? Tell me howwwwww?!

This storyline is so my fucking jam. It's wild, it's chaotic, it's intense, and it's gritty. The detail, the well thought-out-ness (yes, I know that's not a word, lol)... I just love it. I literally can't inhale the words fast enough. Add in the delici

description Hmmm...I am not completely sure how I felt about this book. Overall, I enjoyed it. This author has some fantastic writing skills for sure. I still love Cristiano and he was the best part of this book by far. However, I spent 98% of this book wanting to cunt punch Natalia. Good gravy this chick has to be one of the most annoying heroines I have ever read. I also felt like this book was mostly a filler book. It didn't feel like much happened other than Cristiano and Natalia dancing around each ot

I devoured the second instalment of the White Monarch series!!! I am hooked on all that is going on, and especially the sexual tension between Natalia and Cristiano! Whew! These two if they ever get around to doing the deed... it’s going to be absolutely explosive! It has been a bit frustrating watching Natalia fight her attraction to her husband, and yet I do understand her hesitation.
I am eager to read the conclusion to this trilogy because I have a feeling that she is going to come into her

Someone should remind me that I have only finished my midterms not the whole semester, and I shouldn’t be binge reading a new series because I can’t stop!

This series is really captivating and I can’t stop reading it. I definitely loved this one more than the first book. Natalia still kind of getting on my nerves, because everything is so obvious and she still choose to be so naive. I’m still wishing for a character development tho. I feel it coming.

The ruling of a kingdom, the takedown of dangerous threats, along with sacrifices and betrayals are all in a days work when you’re a part of the cunning and cutthroat world of one of the most powerful cartels in Mexico. Violent Ends showed us a Violent Delights and the repercussions of what some the characters will have to face going forward.

That ending.

DEAD. DEAD. DEAD.

Jessica really nailed it when it comes to this incredible series. Book 2 completely lived up to the hype, passion, and complete madness that took precedent in my heart.

To not give anything away, and trust me it’s hard if you haven’t touched book one, i will keep this short and spoiler free.

This book embodiments everything that is typical of a middle book. The H/h first appear to dislike each other and have ulterior motives to being together but deep down they have feelings...feelings that include a whole ton of lust making the sexual tension over the top.

Then there's all the reveals...Natalia's mind is blown and Cristiano is seeing more of the woman he thought she was and he challenges her every step of the way.

Then Natalia has the biggest reveal of all and that's when all

From a seamless flow of enchanting moments and enthralling intricacies, I’ve found myself totally charmed and unconditionally enamoured by this sinfully decadent series. Violent Ends is more sordid, full of wicked sexual tension, rife with inescapable angst and featuring the filthiest, dominant anti-hero—the outright debauched insinuations increased tenfold— all weaved together to create a devious, sexually heated and emotionally raw narrative.

Her fear both excited and calmed me. Her tea

"You don't live in the ivory tower anymore. You own it. You're going to learn to rule from it, because that's what it means to be Calavera royalty."

Violent Ends is a great and enjoyable follow-up to Violent Delights. I was looking forward to seeing Natalia grow stronger and be less naive, because that was one of the things I didn't like about her in the first book. Thankfully, she was able to see some of the truths about certain characters. She wa

Hello, book hungover. I think that you’ll stay with me for some time…

Jessica Hawkins blew my mind. I was waiting impatiently for Violent Ends and from the very first sentence I was completely hooked. I don’t know if it’s Jessica’s writing, remarkable storyline or just the mix of both, but I was so engrossed with this story that outside world didn’t exist until I was done with this book. Who am I kidding, I’m still not over it! Even though the romance alone is really slo

Jessica Hawkins knows how to tell a story. Hook Line and Sinker. Well, because of how Violent Delights ended I was super beyond excited to get Violent Ends. To get some and ALL the answers. I love that this began right where we left off. It was like pressing 'pause' and then 'play' .... How good it felt to be back in this world OF Love, Lust, Betrayal, Survival and Loyalty.

The chemistry between these 2 is Freaken Off the Pages! Slow burn. Slooooow NICE burn. It is interesting to see the buildin

I love it when a book makes me gasp at the end!!! OMGosh, if this one didn't perfectly set up the ultimate cliffhanger for the third book, Violent Triumphs, I don't know what could have. This book was Jessica Hawkins in her element. With intrigue and forbidden, mixed with an intense hero and a heroine you want to shake, this whole setup is everything I crave from her. I read this book with fervor and fascination. I loved the

My heart is at my throat, and it's all Jessica Hawkins' fault.

This story, this series, is Jessica at her best. THIS is what she's known for. The angst, the slow burn, the WTF moments.

I lived and breathed these characters for three days straight. After the cliffy from book 1 (Violent Delights), I couldn't wait to get my hands on this book. The story picked right up from where it left off, and I felt I was on a roller coaster until the very end. The title of this book, Violent Ends, is 100% accura

Here we go with book 2 in this trilogy. Make sure you’ve read the first book before diving into this one.

Picking up right where we were left hanging in book 1, we get to endure about 80% of this book with a song and dance of back and forth of…
When and how we will consummate the marriage.

The writing as always by this author is fantastic.

But it’s not until the last approx. 20% of the book that the story starts to gain momentum. With that 20% the hints are given, the suggestions are there, the

“Still wrapped in his own towel, Cristiano stood in front of the mirror and shaved up under his chin. His back was not only tan and smooth but very broad. I wondered if it could fit two of me. I'd never seen anything like it, the way his muscles rippled beneath the surface, the embodiment of his capabilities, his weaponry—his power.
"You... you won't look, will you?" I asked, pulling my towel tighter.
With his head tilted back, he lowered just his eyes in the reflection. "If I do, I'll have to jerk off again, and the shower's occuppied."
I frowned. "In a house this size, surely you can find somewhere else to... do that."
He rinsed the razorblade. "Is that an invitation to look?"
"No."
"Why shouldn't I?" he asked. "You belong to me."
"I don't belong to anyone."
"You're Natalia de la Rosa. You bear my name. You've said vows in front of God."
"That doesn't make me your property.”
