Series Blitz - The Zeta Cartel by A J Adams #reviews #teasers #dark

Enter into the violent world of the Cartel, where death and romance go hand in hand. AJ Adams novels are all self-standing and so you need not read them all - although it would be awesome if you did!

Title: The Bonus
Series: Zeta Cartel #1
Author: AJ Adams
Genre: Dark Romance
Release Date: November 12, 2013


Chloe is a seasoned drug courier who finds herself in the wrong place at the wrong time. Facing a lingering and painful death at the hands of the Zeta cartel, Mexico’s most brutal organised crime syndicate, she persuades their enforcer to claim her.

Ex marine and dark ops expert Kyle Suarez is chief enforcer for the Zeta cartel. Ruthlessly efficient, he is feared by his enemies. When he claims Chloe, he simply expects to enjoy a well-deserved and disposable bonus.

Has Chloe made a huge mistake, or will her choice prove her salvation - and his?

Warning: This bad boy dark romance contains explicit scenes of dubious consent, graphic violence and sex. It is for adults only.


Dark and sexy.... Yes this is a dark read, its based on Kyle, he is the second in command in a Mexican Cartel.

Chloe is a complicated woman, she a drug mule, moves fenced stuff whatever needed, until she comes to a cropper and is standing on a block of ice about to be killed or shared by a Mexican cartel lord.

Kyle sees something in Chloe and ask his brother for a BONUS, Chloe, and she gratefully goes down on him minutes later - yes there's lots of sex, BUT Chloe is never really forced by Kyle she enjoys sex it seems, plus she knows it makes him happy and she like making people happy to stay alive so as I mentioned before she is complicated but strangely strong in her own way.

I love a dark read and this book hits that mark. I like the progression of Kyle and Chloe's relationship, Kyle is no Mr nice guy, he never will be in his line of work but he shows compassion and affection towards his Bonus.

A dark cartel romance.

Title: Songbird
Series: Zeta Cartel #2
Author: AJ Adams
Genre: Dark Romance
Release Date: September 22, 2014


“You’re the big boss.” She looked up at me and smiled. She was dressed in a cheap cotton shirt and jeans that should be on the burn pile, but that smile was pure gold. This girl had guts.

“I told José he was a fool to try and cheat you,” she said. “I wasn’t part of it, and I don’t work for you. I was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.”

She’d heard about our policy protecting bystanders. Of course it doesn’t apply to anyone whose eyewitness testimony can put me in a courtroom. Well, try to put me in a courtroom. In Mexico nobody would dare accuse me, and I’ve enough resources in England to guarantee a police investigation would come to nothing, but it’s not my style to take chances. Solitaire would be going into the ground along with Escamilla.

“Mr Vazquez,” Solitaire gave me her best smile. “I don’t expect something for nothing.” She dropped her voice. “You’d like me,” she whispered. “I’ve heard about you. We’re the same.”

“Are we?”

“Yes, I can make you very happy.” She brushed my hand over her cheek and then kissed my palm. “I’m a very good girl,” she said quietly. “Unless you prefer a naughty one?”

She sucked my thumb, and I was instantly rock hard.


When cartel boss Arturo Vazquez discovers his girlfriend Gina is a DEA rat and his deputy Escamilla is staging a take-over, Arturo fixes his problems by killing everyone - except for Solitaire, Escamilla’s unwilling mistress. Solitaire is intelligent, tough, and shares Arturo’s interest in BDSM. Arturo falls head over heels but someone is leaking information - and the evidence point at Solitaire.

Songbird is a complete and self standing novel in the Zeta series. Warning: This bad boy dark romance contains explicit scenes of dubious consent, graphic violence and strong language. It is for adults only.


Dark, yes that's one way to describe the start of this book, I thought not sure I can deal with so much brutality. Then Arturo the leading man in this book and Cartel boss remembered how he held a woman prisoner for a month and turned her in a sex machine (for anyone) and I nearly threw up. I was going to stop reading then as how can anyone deserve love if they can do something so degrading to woman, BUT I carried on and damn it I loved Solitaire and Arturo's relationship.

Arturo is the boss and his brutal but his protective of his family and people that are loyal to him, I loved his caring side - the brutal side not so much.

Solitaire - she becomes Arturo's woman, she falls into the role easily and it's not just because he wants her, she wants him too. She has some memory issues which adds to the wonder what's gonna come up later. 

I enjoyed this book more than book 1, just remember this is a romance in a dark world!

Title: Dirty Dealings
Series: Zeta Cartel #3
Author: AJ Adams
Genre: Dark Romance
Release Date: June 27, 2016


I could’ve 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 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. 

Dirty Dealings is a self standing and complete novel in the Zeta cartel series. Warning: This bad boy romance contains strong adult language and themes as well as graphic violence and fully depicted love scenes. It is for adults only.

★*✩*★ RELEASE BLITZ ★*✩*★ Pelvic Flaws #Review #FiveStars

★*✩*★ RELEASE BLITZ ★*✩*★
Pelvic Flaws
Looking for a Funny and heartwarming story? Dive in and meet Katie, a real woman and Dex a dream silver fox 
Available on Amazon: 

Pelvic Flaws
I’m Katie Grainger, I’m 45 years old, a divorced mother of three, slightly annoying at times, but always loveable, kids and I can wet myself at the drop of hat. Actually, it’s more like a sneeze or a cough than a drop of a hat, but whatever the reason, let’s just say I am forever grateful for the invention of the ultra-thin panty pad.
I don’t have a bad life, there’s book club where I discuss the menopause with my friends, there’s Clubbercise where I wet myself and dance like my mother with my friend Mandy and there’s my work which is pretty boring, where I get to learn a lot about reality TV from my much younger co-workers. All of which makes me content – yes, I’d like more sex, but who wouldn’t when their castle hadn’t been breached for four years. 
Do I have regrets in my life?
Yes, I do. I regret that my ex-husband, Carl, and I didn’t realise we’d grown apart sooner. I regret not trying more online dating when I first got divorced and I regret that my youngest, Charlie, feels torn between pleasing me and his dad. What I don’t regret is my bag breaking and spilling everything over the pizza place floor, the night Dex Michaels was in there ordering a 9inch meat feast.
What can I say about Dex?
Dex is the sort of man that dreamy sighs are made of. He’s tattooed, has impeccable pecs and amazing abs and has the most gorgeous blue eyes I’ve ever seen. He’s a true Southern Gentleman, with an accent that makes me want to wear a pair of Daisy Duke’s and ride across the range on stallion call Champion. Dex Michaels is 46 years old, owns his own Tattoo Studio, has no baggage and seems to think I’m cute. A match made in heaven – right?
Pelvic Flaws is the story of one woman’s struggle with hot sweats, mood swings and perilously poor pelvic floor muscles. It’s the story of Dex, who thinks all those things about Katie are funny and adorable. It’s the story of a romance that could turn into something big. It’s the story of what might be the love affair of the century, potentially being ruined by the baggage that neither of them knew existed.


Loved it

I was hooked from the beginning, the start was amusing, book club sounded just like me and my girly friends talking 😃

Katie is a divorcee with 3 kids, she's your run of the mill woman, doesn't see her own strengths, has typical age 45+ issues, along with a very honest voice.

Okay I'm considering doctoring some of my bags if it brings a Dex into my life...... bugger I'm married so that won't be a good idea lol

Dex is the perfect silver fox and is swoon-worthy. He calls everyone darlin as he is American and damn it sounds good coming from him, but he calls Katie Kat <3 His a tattooist with good morals and is so kind and considerate and most definitely SEXY!

The story and humour made me giggle and quite a few bits made me belly laugh - especially the 'escape' when Katie and Dex are at the gym together!

I loved how real Katie was and other than the fact I'm married, I almost thought Katie was based around me. Yes Dex is a dreamboat and most probably more fantasy, but who cares I loved him.

So, if you're looking for a Funny and heartwarming story, dive in and meet Katie, a real woman and Dex a dream silver fox <3
