WAR
Launch Sample
My father was the leader of a protection racket; a criminal group that uses violence to ensure our clients won't be harmed or robbed, and that their businesses will remain protected. What we do isn't legal, but it's the way we've lived for many years now.

Memphis Reed--my father--was formidable. He was a man people both respected and feared. He taught me everything he knew, and when he died I was left in charge.

Before his death, a battle was brewing on the streets. Lies were told, deceptions were made, and people were killed. People we thought we knew changed, relationships and friendships were torn apart, and loyalties were questioned. After his death, a full on war is raging, and Roman Rios--a man we now know we can't trust--wants to move in on our business.

With me now being the leader of nine men, it's up to me to protect them from Roman and his own crew of ruthless criminals. I'll do whatever's necessary to keep my business my own and protect everything my father worked for. Even if I have to go up against Xavier Delgado. Roman's number two. A man with no heart and a black soul. A man Roman trained to be as vicious and cold-blooded as he is. A man who once upon a time I thought I was in love with.

Yes, I'm a she. My name is Chevelley Reed, and all's fair in love and war.

I loved this book. It is the second book I have from Isabel. I can see her writing growth and am fascinated by it.  I enjoyed the heck out of this story told from the inside of a criminal enterprise. I think it is a very fresh take on the undercover books we are all used to.  I think this could be the start of a new author added to my auto buy list.  I was gifted this book in exchange for an honest review.

4 1/2 Stars! 4 1/2 stars!  This is the 1st book I've read by Isa
4 1/2 Stars! 4 1/2 stars!  This is the 1st book I've read by Isabel Lucero and it definitely won't be my last. I really enjoyed this book, I like that the heroine Chevelley is a tough as nails leader of a protection racket, but she also has a heart and protects the ones she loves. Then there is Xavier Delgado, who used to be really close to Chevelley, but now works for the man who killed her father. Chevelley becomes leader of her father's protection racket after his death. When her biggest rival and the man who killed her father Roman Rios starts invading their turf, it leads to War.  I love how the author uses flashbacks with Chevelley and Xavier and we get to see how they were before they became enemies. We also get to see what caused Xavier to become the hard cruel man he is now. This book has it all, action, suspense and plenty of drama!!
