Review: Cartel Dreams: A Love Story by Nicety

GENRE: Urban Drama

HOW DID I COME ACROSS THIS BOOK: This has been on my idle for quite some time. I believe that I got it for free.


READER SYNOPSIS: Twenty-three year old Daisy is a all around good girl and thinking about grad school. She finds herself tempted by the bad boy next door Quince. Daisy is hiding a secret and Quince is making moves to change his life.

WHAT I LIKED: This is a interesting story with a lot of potential. It has all of the makings of a story that could draw you in. The cliff hanger does make me want to read the second book to see what is going on, if there is a second book.

WHAT I DIDN’T LIKE: I had a hard time getting through this book. This book was not formatted properly, which I found very distracting. Chapters bled into each other. The awful formatting made me feel as if the author did not care enough about the project.

A bit of the story is unrealistic. Daisy lives in an urban neighborhood, yet she is naive to Quince’s job considering he has tons of cash stashed around. I think it’s pretty obvious that he sells drugs but somehow she manages to be completely clueless. Also she drops her best friend for this guy. They’ve been friends for years yet a guy she didn’t initially want manages to tear apart her friendship?

It was also a bit more explicit than I like.

RATING: ⭐️⭐️⭐️ Had the formatting been better this book might have received a higher rating.
