I could’ve fucking strangled her. She knew it too because she stepped away quickly. “Touch me and I’ll have you!” she snarled.
“Bruja mala leche! What the fuck do you think you’re playing at! You can’t push me around!”
“Sure I can.” Her eyes were slate grey, the same colour as the sky, and just as cold. “I need help, and you’re going to give it.”
“What the hell are you talking about?”
“I’ve got a situation. I need someone who isn’t afraid of murder and mayhem.”
I should have charmed her, offered to help and maybe it would have settled it, but I was too mad to even consider it. “Help you? Over my dead fucking body!”
She shrugged. “We can do it that way, too.” She took out her phone. “I’ll call you soon, hopefully within the hour. If you still refuse, I call Smith.” The eyes were hard. “I’d rather not shop you, because I hate that bastard, but I will if you make me.”
I gave her my number. I mean, I wanted to kill her, but in London they notice things like bodies in the street. Especially if you’re careless enough to do it in broad daylight next to a cop shop.
Quique is having a bad time. Back in Mexico his marriage has fallen apart and his wife has made him a laughing stock by cheating on him. Now he’s in London and finding himself out of his depth with a complex commercial deal. To make things worse, Natalia Truelove, a chef and pub manager, is blackmailing him. Quique is ready to commit murder and he’s pretty sure who his first victim will be.
Warning: Dirty Dealings contains strong adult language and themes as well as graphic violence and fully depicted love scenes.
I loved Dirty Dealings! This is Quique & Natalia’s story. They meet when the Zeta Cartel send Quique to England on a operation for the Zeta’s. Quique is the second in charge of security for the Mexican Zeta Cartel. Natalia finds herself running a pub for her ex Father in law (he is in jail) and no one else is either responsible enough or capable of running it. And, she has been asked to run it by the family even though she is divorced. Natalia is a caregiver by heart, even though she is known for being tough. Natalia is a big “B” (yes edited for my Amazon review) and I loved Natalia Truelove’s character! She is a strong woman and yet can fall apart at all the right moments just like a woman can. And, while being a strong man Quique had a marriage that was falling apart and his soon to be ex had emasculated him in front of the Zeta’s. Believe me Quique is all “Man” but, he didn’t feel that way in front of his friends and family within the Zeta’s. Natalia really knows how to build him back up in front of the Zeta’s. Okay no more story you need to read Dirty Dealings.
And as usual I love reading book by A. J. Adams because she really knows how to tell a story. I received a complimentary copy for an honest review and I give Dirty Dealings 4.5 Stars.
