The highly anticipated Cartel 3 begins with a glimpse of the funeral of the remaining Diamond siblings, Breeze, Carter, and Mecca. It then quickly whisks us back in time to play out the events that lead to that somber day. Miamor remains trapped in the basement of torture, bound to a chair and beaten half to death. Fabian is still trying with all of his might to break her mentally but he just can't seem to get the best of her. Miamor is barely clinging to life, yet she refuses to apologize or be ...more

I can see why a lot of people were dissapointed with this book. The 2nd book was just so amazing, and I really could have been satisfied if that was the ending. A lot of things did irk me, after Miamor's dream in part 2 I was upset that she was killed so quickly. I really wanted to see her and Carter have their happy ending. There was so much death in the book but I didn't see the need for everyone to die at the end. Breeze and Zy should have gotten married and the book should have ended. Why Ca ...more

Where do i start. Okay this book pissed me completely off. Thats how upset I was with this book. Ashley&Jaquavis are beginning to start a little trend that i do not like and thats killing off everybody in every book,i mean you cant call it a twist when everybody knows the twist is death***SPOILER ALERT*** I truly wanted at least Breeze and Zyir to survive in the end i loved them two. And i hated that Miamor was supposedly killed so early, i mean really, why though? I was mad just because i f ...more
Couldnt wait to finish this book as the entire Diamond family had me so curious.. each and every one of them have their own interesting story and a whole book could have been written on each side story so for the authors to be able to condense all information into a quick less than three hundred page read I commend them as I truly enjoyed their trilogy--....As a stand alone novel I may have been disappointed as you jump right in straight no chaser but as a continuation of the other two page turn ...more

Did not see any of this coming! Throughout this whole book I fell in love with Young Carter. Still loved him in the end. I hated Mecca throughout the whole book, but gained a little respect for him in the end. A little too late, but nonetheless I respected his game. Miamour-love her. I think she represents a woman in that game well. I have mad respect for her. She took death like a woman. She knew she had to much blood her hands and one day karma was going to come back hard on her. She didnt beg ...more

After Miamor's dream of dying, I didn't expect for her to die so quickly in this book! Honestly after that occurred, I took my time reading this book.

From the time Zyir met this messy Mexican chick, I knew he was going to pussy-whipped and ultimately lead the cartel into yet another war. I just knew it.

The ending was the best part of the book to me. However, I didn't like that I was expecting and basically KNEW that the characters were going to fake their deaths. That was a little cheesy.

I wasn't sure I wanted to read it after part 2 but I did. Although I wanted a happy ending, I don't think that would be realistic based on the kind of life they led. I think the authors definitely left room for a part 4. We'll see!!

This book was page-turning and nail biting good! I couldn't read it fast enough! Now I'm left in suspense to wonder the fate of Young Carter! Job well done!

I couldn't wait to finish this book because it was absolutely good! Since the last book turned out just to be Miramor's dream, it was so shocking to find that out. I was glad to read more and more in this book about my favorite characters Carter and Breeze, even with everything they both go through. But now in this book, I was even more shocked and saddened by the way this book ends. I won't say any spoilers here, but those of you who read it will be so enthralled by the chain of events that lea ...more

Family is very important to the Diamond family but at the same time they are not loyal to each other at all. Everything that happens in previous books eventually catches up each character in this book. In Cartel 2 Breeze gets kidnapped by Mate when she was just about to lose her virginity to someone she was not suppose to be talking to . One of the Diamond brothers conscience is eating him up he cant live with him self any longer knowing what shame he has brought to his family. Both Diamond pare ...more

This book was a nice ending to the Cartel Series. I really enjoyed it, it had my emotions going crazy because the drama was never ending, I almost cried when I got the part of the funeral, I was relieved to find out they were alive and well, then the deaths of Mecca,Breeze,and Zyir saddened me, I was looking forward to a happy ending.....Great Read.

I like this one better than the 2nd book, however the dream series from the 2nd book kept messing up the time line in my head. I kept asking myself, "does this person know this yet? Or did this happen already?"

What a good read. One of the better 3rd book of triliogy that I have read in a long time.

Had it's sad parts and definately all the drama of the first two.

Is it really over or is it true what they say...."Diamonds are Forever"?

Thanks Ashley & Jaquavis.

Wow, I enjoyed this series very much. Again the authors don't believe in happy endings but they did leave a slight possibility of something happening for carter.

Pure Greatness!!!!

This series is so grimy and so good .I was on the edge of my seat reading. I really was hoping for Breeze to have a happy ending after everything she endured. And I my opinion Mecca got exactly what he deserved. Young Carter,is definitely the man I love. I love his attitude,his Street wisdom and his loyalty. This series is definitely one to read over and over.

When an author can make you feel like you actually know the characters and you talk about them like they are real life people you know it's good. I will never miss a release by the authors. Their writing is amazing and keeps the books in my hand. I read them too fast. I have never re read a book before but I have to the whole series.

What an ending.
Illiana should have paid for the role she played with Breeze silently so that the Mexican cartel would never know the truth.
Exciting and suspenseful story.
I think Books 2 and 3 should have been combined with a different ending.

Man oh man

The plot thickens in this story and now you are left to see what is about to happen next I knew Carter was gonna get his revenge just wish Zyir and Breeze would have made it out the game so ready to see what happens in the next book.
