Javier Estrada is the king of Mexico.
Evil. Twisted. Psychopathic.
A cruel madman with a killer smile.
And he is my boss.
My duty is to blend in, clean his home, and not make a peep.
I’ve done my job well for years.
Imbedded myself so deep in his world, he’s never going to get me out.
But I am this king’s worst nightmare.
Bad men like him took everything away from me.
I will never forget.
He will pay for the sins of many.
I’ll just bide my time—watching, waiting, calculating—until the time is right.
When I strike, he won’t know what hit him.
The monster who rules Mexico with an iron fist may not bow to anyone…
But I’m not just anyone.
He will bow to me.
Wow… this book was pretty crazy!!! It had a lot going on! And I loved it! It had the right amount of everything! I love K. Webster’s dark & twisted reads.
Rosa and Javier were pretty explosive together. She certainly tamed the beast in a certain way. And I loved how Javier went all in with Rosa. Even though he knew she was hiding something from him.
“You can’t hide from me now,” he says with a grin, his dimple making an appearance. “You’re in my lair now and I’m starved.”
Something bad happened to Rosa as a kid and it shaped her to the person she is today. She applied herself in school and worked hard and got into the CIA. Her main mission was to take down all cartels. She was undercover for years as a maid for Javier the leader of the El Malo cartel. Feeing information to her superior every week….When things started to go south.
An incident happened to her on her way back to Javier’s house. That’s when things start to move along between Rosa and Javier. He’s been wanting her for a long time but never wanted to cross the line with her.
Javier took a big interest in Rosa. I felt he took the leap with her. Jumping with both feet. He took her to nice places but also showed her the ugly side of what he did.
“Being with Javier is like being with a prince. A dark, fucked up prince, but still a prince.”
She tries fighting her attraction for him. Having feelings for him went against everything she believed in. She was in a constant battle with herself about falling for him.
“No one will protect you. I’m going to take you and use you and own you. Mine, mami.”
She was also constantly worried that he would find out about her secret she was hiding. Everyday she thought is today the day he will find out. But once they would kiss and do things together. Everything faded away to the background.
“Nothing exists outside his bedroom door. We’re lovers on the fast track for more. He’s not king of the cartel. I’m not with the CIA.”
There was a lot going on in this book but in the end Javier show and proved just how much he loved Rosa.
“I’m lost, so lost, but he keeps finding me. Over and over again.”
This was a good read! It had me going! I really enjoyed reading this story! And I’m hoping we get another story from one of the secondary characters from this book!
