Summary

You thought the Cartel was over, but Diamonds are forever….

The Diamond family has survived murder, deceit, and betrayal. Through it all, they’re still standing tall, and a new era has begun. After surviving an attempt on her life, Breeze has moved into the queen’s position by Zyir’s side. Zyir has taken over the empire and locked down Miami’s streets; the world is in his hands. But there is always new blood ready to overthrow the throne.

Young Carter has retired and moved away from the madness - that is, until he gets an unexpected visitor at his home. This person shakes up the whole family, causing chaos that threatens to bring down the Cartel for good.

New York Times best-selling authors Ashley and JaQuavis deliver the highly anticipated fourth installment of the wildly popular Cartel series.

Fast paced, Exciting, Alot going on, & High Energy

If you don’t pay attention, you will have to rewind. This book is a good read with more of the same from the previous reads in this series. Some stuff is straight unbelievable. Unbelievable in the sense you are going to be like, yeah right, that could happen(sarcastically). I did enjoy it, the sound effects, had me looking around at times trying to figure out if that was the book or something going on near me, lol. The character development, always good, you feel like you know them especially by now. I’m being really vague as not to give away the juiciness. You will not get bored, excitement throughout. Wondering if there will be a #5.

Can a person just be dead

If one more person comes back from the dead! The stories would be more realistic if people weren't declared dead in one book but came back for whatever reason in another. I can't keep up. as much as I love the book series if one more person returns from a fake death, I'm going to stop listening 🤣

Should have stopped with book 3

I love Ashley & JaQuavis, and this series very much. However, this is just a horrible book. These great characters just reappear and we are expected to believe it with no explanation. The only bright spot is the truly awesome reading of Cary Hite, at least he never misses.

I'm so attached to this series

Where does The Cartel 4 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Probably 3rd or 4th.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Carter. He was strong, level-headed, mature, and loyal. He took charge of his family and I loved that about him.

What about Cary Hite’s performance did you like?

I loved his performance. He acted out each part and each character could easily distinguished.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When the brothers put their differences aside.

Any additional comments?

I was mad at first because I felt the twists ruined the first three books, but the story definitely stood on it's own and grew on me after a couple of chapters. There was some continuity issues also. I wasn't too crazy about the ending though. I will definitely check out part 5, but must say, I'm nervous about the direction they are going in, maybe because I'm so in love with young Carter. :) overall great book. I didn't want it to end.

Spirit's of the past

This book is filled with the same drama that I like and have read in the previous Cartel series, with so many twists and turns it leaves you wanting more. I would go into detail about the characters but due to all the twists and turns of the previous Cartel series I don't want to give nothing away. The violence in the book is still what gives the book all the drama and give the readers an adrenalin rush. The narrator did an excellent job and brought life to this book and the characters will be having you say "wtf". Don't miss this one because it will leave you wanting more but it also answers questions that you may have formed in your head from the previous Cartel books.

Yessss!!!!

Cary Hite knows he can narrate a novel. He never fails to make me feel like I’m in a theatre watching it all go down. I don’t want to give any spoilers away but just know I’m rooting for the women..ALWAYS!! Ashley and Jaquavis never disappoint.

Raised from the dead

I was so shocked how Money was raised from the so called dead. I really thought he died in book 1. It was so sad. I really thought Mecca killed Lena and Money. Money was the twin brother of Mecca. Mecca seemed to be the one who always wanted to fight, shoot, and kill. Monroe aka Money was level headed, calm tempered, and business mined. Estess, the grandfather, fofound Lena and Money and Lena shot and were left for dead. Estess kept both of them alive and Money resurfaced in book 4. I was so happy he was still living. I hated that dad Carter and Mother teran were killed and Money did no know anything about it. He was in a coma for five long years. His grandfather, Estess loved him and despised Mecca. I sort of felt bad for mecca because I was fooled again by the author thinking that Mecca killed miamore. It wasn’t her. It made Carter kill Mecca. Money got better and it seemed like he changed and had Mecca’s evil spirit. He became money hungry, evil, and wanted to be the head of the cartel. I did feel where he was coming from. I felt he was most pissed off that an outsider, who did not have the Carter name, was running the Cartel. It had to be done because he was in a coma for five long years and no one ever knew if he would wake up or not. This book is so juicy you must read the “The Cartel4”.
