  • This book is like "WOW"
    This is the best book I've read so far by Ashley and Jaquavis. I can't wait until the sequel hits the streets.... I want to catch up with Carter Jones and see how it ends with his Miamor... ...more info
  • LOVE AND HATE!!
    I LOVED THIS BOOK AND HATED IT AT THE SAME TIME. THIS BOOK STARTED OFF FULL OF ACTION AND HAD MY ATTENTION FROM THE FIRST PAGE. I LOVED MOST OF THE CHARACTERS AND HATED SOME. THE ONLY THING THAT THREW ME FOR A LOOP WAS THE ENDING HOW I HATED IT SO. I CAN'T WAIT UNTIL PART TWO COMES OUT I NEED TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENED. 5 STARS A MUST READ!!...more info
  • BEST BOOK I'VE EVER READ!!!!
    First off, let me start by saying if you gave this book less than 5 stars...YOUR BUGGING!!!! Wow. All I can say after I finished this book was wow. It was pefect!!! It had it all, the gangsta street life, the romance, the conflicts, the turn of events... it was all of that wrapped into one, excellent book. The Cartel has surpassed my expectations to the fullest!!! from the first page to last last, I was hooked. Never a dull moment in this book. I felt a connection with every character. I laughed, I cried, I gasped, I sighed, I did it all!!!!!! Straight up, I recommend this book to anyone whoses a fan of reading. Even if you don't enjoy street lit. like I do, I TRUST that you would be able to appreciate this excellent peice of literature. If I could give it 10 stars, I would. Awesome book, hands down....more info
  • the truth!....
    One word for this book "Great"..but what else can you expect from Ashley and Jaquavis. Oh and you gotta check out Supreme CLiente and Dirty Money. Cant wait for the Cartel Sequel...more info
  • Diamonds are forever
    Well, Well, Well let me start by saying.............5 STARS. For those who have not cop this book please do. This book puts me in the mind of Hoodlum by Kwan but taking up about 3 notches so if you liked Hoodlum (which I did) you will LOVE this book.



    Carter Diamond runs Miami and The Cartel. He is a fine, suave, charming, and fair leader. Become a problem and you will see him for what he is, a killer. Carter is feared and loved at the same time. Carter has 3 children with his beautiful Dominician wife Taryn; twin boys Mecca and Money (Monroe), and a daughter Breeze. Mecca is the hot head. He loves attention, power, and fear. He loves the street aspect of the business and is the first person in line to bust a gun. Money (Monroe) is the logical and calm brother. He loves the business aspect of The Cartel, which is a 100 million dollar real estate business. Now Money is no punk, but he is a thinker and is very smart. Then there is Breeze, the princess. Breeze only concern is shopping and hanging with her friends. Whatever she wants or THINKS she wants is given to her without question. Breeze is drop dead gorgeous and is shielded from life by her father and brothers.

    Are Diamonds forever?

    Well not in Carter Diamond case. Carter is brutally murdered!! His death leaves his family and The Cartel without leadership. In comes Carter Jones, Carter Diamond illegitimate son. "Young Carter" is the spitting image of his father physical and mentally. Can Young Carter save The Cartel?


    Am I my sister's Keeper

    Well Miamor is a contract killer can not forgive herself after her sister is killed while doing a job. Miamor vows to avenge her sister's death. When she meets Young Carter the last thing she needed or wanted happened....she fell in love. Is love enough to turn a killer into a wife?

    Again 5 STARS worth the wait. This is a triology I can't wait for part 2 or there individual projects, Prada Plans (Ashley) and The Dopeman's Wife (JaQuavis).

  • The Cartel
    This is the best book I have read by Ashley & JaQuavis.I'm not gonna get into what the story is about being that the title speaks for itself.It captured my attention from beginning to end.I lost sleep reading this book because it was so good.I am definitely adding this book to my urban collection.Don't sleep on this one because it's a must read.I'm looking forward to the next installment of the Cartel....more info
  • Ashley and Jaquavis Do It Again!!
    This book is the best "urban lit" book I've read in a while. It reminds me of Dutch or Deadly Reigns. So if you like those titles then you will surely like this. The book gets you hooked from the jump and it's definitely a page turner. I can't believe it is the first of a trilogy. That means the roller coaster ride has just begun! Truthfully, there is so much action and plot twisting in this book that I can't imagine how parts 2 and 3 will play out. Ashley and JaQuavis are a talented duo. I hope they stick to their book releasing schedule for the sake of the fans....more info
  • OFF DA CHAIN!!!!!
    This book by far was one of the best reads i've encountered. It kept my interest from start to finish. I was very impressed with the writting and how each character was detailed. My hat is off to the two authors what an awesome job they did. It will be hard to top this book or to write one equally as good. I will look forward to the sequel....more info
  • Dj vu
    "The Cartel" falls between the good, the bad and the ugly. Using the street lit handbook and a predictable plot line, this novel will have you glued to your seat.

    Someone younger or newer to the genre would welcome the mixture of drama and violence and enjoy this novel. For me, those are the exact problems I found with this novel.

    This difference in opinion simply could be chalked up to my reading resume. I've read a lot and at this point I expect a little more, particularly creativity and originality. Realism doesn't hurt either.

    "The Cartel" will have some readers enthralled. For those who crave a little more depth, it's an okay read - nothing new or exceptional but readable.

  • The Diamond Family Gets a 3.5
    At the beginning I couldn't put the book down. The first couple of chapters I was like; DANG, something I tried to write but they did it better! In the middle; some of the plot twists made me feel a little slow because I just didn't understand. Especially when Money "love" was revealed. I was like, "are ya'll serious, a mafia family would have never."
    I had another issue, Mia has a tat that say at the beginning what crew she was with, so why didn't Young Carter question it to Uncle Polo if he knew they were at war.
    Other than that, it was a very good read because I love Street Novels and I'm a big Mafia (Godfather) reader. I love the fact that they tried to combine the two but they have to get the Mafia side better because certain things the Diamonds did or let happen (security wise) would never happen in the Italian Mafia or even in the Black Mafia.
    I recommend the book and I'm going to be watching for Part II....more info
  • this book is fire
    this is the best book out right now. i was literally crying at the end. part 2 cant come fast enough. ashley and jaQuavis is the hottest authors! it had so many twist and turns. and then u have menace, he was crazy as all out doors! this book on point...more info
  • Cool for what it was!
    This was a decent read..Could have done without all the long drawn out sex scenes...other than that ths novel had me on edge and Im looking forward to the second installment..I wonder whats going to happen with Leann and the baby..And did Polo ever make it out of the water with his lil boat and paddle? I dont think he was mentioned again after that.Even though Mecca was the most unlikable character..He was the real showstopper in this book and what kept the drama and story going....more info
  • Exciting from begining to End
    The Cartel is really a great read and I can't wait for part two. I debated for awhile to get this book. When I saw the cover it atrracted me but you can't base a book by its cover. I read some reviews here on Amazon and thought they were pretty great reviews but I had to find out for myself. Well once i got the book it took me abouts three days to read it. I loved it. I just bough three more books by Ashley and Jaquavis. They are great!!!!!!!...more info
  • ***REALLY GUD READ******

  • A Modern Urban Classic
    Okay...so almost every urban book lover knows the classic True to the Game. I am not talking about part II and III of the book because those sequels were irrelevant. But I have not read a book like True to the Game since I first flipped those pages years ago. The Cartel is an amazing read, written as a movie that deals with the drug game, murder, love and lust and the importance of family. These duo authors go well together as they bring us a real story and nothing where we think in some of these alike books "yeah right, that don't happen." You will truly gain a connection to each character and ladies a fantasy admiration for the male characters especially Young Carter. I advise you to purchase the book..you will love it from the 1st page to the last...can't wait till part 2....more info
  • Only Okay
    I got this book based on all of the great reviews but it was only okay to me. I did like Young Carter, but some scenes were a little too silly for me. Like when the brother tried to give Miamor a drink at the party but ended up killing his (don't want to spoil the story for those who haven't read it yet) instead. This is supposed to be a street smart family. Why would he think another street smart girl would ever drink from her enemy. There were a lot of little silly scenes like this that left me scratching my head. I see where the authors where trying to take the story but Soprano writers they are not. Try a little harder next time because I will be picking up part 2....more info
  • Cartel family is the BUSINESS!!!!
    This was the best book that I have read in a long time since Dutch and angels revenge. I love the cartel family. I can not wait until they find out Breeze is alive and not dead. ...more info
  • The Cartel
    This is by far the best book that I've read by Ashely and Jaquavis. I love young carter he's so gangster and all about family first. I just hate how his bestfriend turn against him an his youngester. I don't want to go in to much details without giving up the book. If you don't have this you need to go out and cope this book right away. Once you start reading the first page you want put it down. I can't wait for the second installment come out. Please hurry up with the second book. I'm on pins and neddles waiting....more info
  • Hats Off...
    Man...hands down this is the best of the best street tales. I purchased it today and I couldn't stop reading it. I'm a hood chic at heart but always operate with class and that's exactly how i see the execution of Ashley & Jaquavis books. But this book right here... Got me. For some reason I want to see Miamor survive only to be with Young Carter, (or does she)because everyone deserves a chance at redemption. Whatever you two decide to put from pen to pad, i'm riding with ya! ...more info
