Overview

I had a life, love, and future to give.
Until my enemy took a wife.


The devil has a name, and it's Cristiano de la Rosa. On my wedding day, he was the last man I expected to see standing at the altar. He wants to make me his queen. His brother wants to rescue his princess.

Getting Cristiano to lose control becomes the name of the game, and the stakes are life and death. But as truth and lies blur, loyalty is tested, and our chemistry threatens to reach the melting point, the prize grows less clear. Either freedom no longer means what I think it does, or Cristiano is as devious as everyone says, and he's mastered the art of playing my mind.

All I know for certain is that nothing is certain. And all you need to know?
This is a love story.
But even love stories have to end.

This second installment in the White Monarch trilogy continues to take my breathe away! Violent Ends picks up where Violent Delights left off. Natalia has been tricked into marrying the man she has despised for most of her life, believing he murdered her mother. Then she is taken to live in a place she believes holds unimaginable atrocities. She grew up sheltered, treated like a princess, and never wanted to live in the brutal world of a cartel. Now she is in the midst it, and trying to find a way out. But she is surprised by how safe Cristiano makes her feel, and his dominance calls to her. He is complex and makes her question everything she knows. This slow burn, and seductive story takes us on a journey with twists and turns that are riveting and heart-stopping! In this world of power, money, and revenge, loyalty was everything and it is hard knowing who you could trust. Natalia frustrated me a bit with her naivete and some of her actions, but it only made me appreciate her more as she became stronger. This story is so beautifully written with captivating characters, brilliant banter, and sexual tension that leaps right off the page. I was completely caught off guard by the shocking ending and didn't want it to end there. I loved this beautiful masterpiece and can't wait to find out what happens in the final book, Violent Triumphs!

5 edge of your seat stars for Violent Ends! Mierda!! After that cliffhanger ending in Violent Delights, I couldn't wait to get my hands on book 2 to see what happens between Natalia and Cristiano. How is she going to handle the situation that Diego has put her in? For such a privileged and protected girl, does she have the fortitude to hold her own against El Polvo, the nickname given to Cristiano? She's heard the most terrible rumors about him all these years, is she going to survive him? I absolutely loved seeing things from Cristiano's perspective. Learning from his conversations with Natalia what rumors are true and which ones aren't. I knew from the beginning that he was the brother I was going to side with, regardless of what he's done in the past or is doing now. Natalia is very quick to think on her feet and she holds her own against Cristiano, but Por el amor de Dios, I wanted to shake her SO many times! She is holding so steadfastly to things she thinks she knows without any concrete proof, and is so stubborn to not let go of preconceived notions. Oy, I wanted to crawl into the pages of the book and be like, "girl...let's have a chat." There are twists and turns galore, hints placed that are leading us toward a dramatic conclusion in this explosive series!! The slow burn between Natalia and Cristiano is scorching hot!! I'm trying so hard not to forget anyone or anything as I'm reading because I just know things are going to pop up in book 3 that I wasn't paying attention to along the way and those things are going to rock my socks!! Jessica has me totally enthralled and invested in the Cartel life! I thought that cliffy we got at the end of book 1 was bad. The cliffy at the end of book 2 nearly made me pee my pants! Jessica is pure evil to leave us like that!! Come on November, I NEED the rest of the story!

Jessica Hawkins has completely stolen my breath away with the newest installment in her addictively captivating White Monarch Trilogy. This phenomenal author has managed to wholeheartedly captivate my body, mind, and soul once again while knocking me right on my a** with the twists and turns she throws at us every step of the way. Her beautifully raw storytelling ability has perfectly captured this twisted world. Cristiano de la Rosa is my ultimate dream man and he’s even managed to steal every inch of my heart and soul. Just when I thought I couldn’t fall for him more, he surprises me with his compassion and love for his new wife, Natalia Cruz. Every time I think I finally have him figured out, he does something totally unexpected, leaving me swooning. I just wish Natalia would open up her sweet little naïve eyes and finally realize that everything he is doing is to protect her…the one he loves, even if he hasn’t admitted it yet. I even have a small inkling that she’s starting to fall for him too. There is so much I want to say about this story right now, but I am still beyond speechless from that cliffhanger ending! Jessica Hawkins sure know how to keep us on our toes and now I am counting down the days until I can FINALLY get my hands on Violent Triumphs, the final book in the White Monarch Trilogy! #IsItNovemberYet?! #NeedItNow #ILoveCristiano

This is book two in this sinfully delicious and darkly twisted series. It is essential that you read book one, Violent Delights first. Otherwise you will not get the complete story and feel lost. Wow! Just when you think that things can not get more intense or hotter, they do. Cristiano and Natalia's relationship is deepening and evolving. Natalie has matured so much as the story has unfolded and she needs that maturity as more secrets and lies swirl around her. In my opinion though, she has to make further progress in this area to truly be the strong, savvy, empowered heroine she needs to be. Cristiano is incredibly intense (and HOT!!!). Dominate, brutal and a master manipulator, I still feel there is so much more to this character to explore. This book delivers a jaw-dropping, breath stealing, emotional roller coaster ride that will totally blindside you with a stunning OMG cliffhanger that will leave you needing more now! This is my independent, impartial review.

Cristiano is my new buzz! I love love him and I have not felt this passionate about the hero of a story is a very long time. I get excited as I keep turning the pages. He is so passionate when it comes to those he cares about. He is Robin Hood but in a Cartel style way. Plus he makes my blood boil. Natalia is growing more on me. I feel like she has these blinders on and only what she knows is good. But she is starting to see Cristiano in a new light. I am hoping when she finally figures things out, its not too late. The END!!! Gah I was holding my breath and I feel like I still cannot breath. I am anticipating to see what happens and if anyone survives. From the first book there is one thing that stays in my mind, "You will die for your husband." An older lady told this to Natalia that has yet escaped me. I need more!!

Oh my heart....Cristiano. He is everything you would think of but oh so much more. I love him and I’m rooting for him. I would have fell to my knees at the end of book 1. This book continues where book 1 ended and it does NOT disappoint. I’m in full hangover mode and wishing my summer away! I am hoping November comes quickly!

Violent Ends by Jessica Hawkins a five-star read that will end you. This is number two in the White Monarch series and they are best read in order. The tension and drama in this series just gets better and better, its dark and dramatic and so powerful it will knock your socks off!! Natalia becomes a woman in this story, she grows and develops before your eyes. I don’t know what to say other that wow, I don’t want to give spoilers, but this was just simply sublime. I can honestly say that this is going to be one of the best series this year!!
