This was definitely an interesting book. A real good look at a cartel's structure, starting with the dirty cops and local drug deals and ending with the enforcers and the big guy who runs the show.
Our story follows Lilly O'Hara a twenty-three year old, who in my opinion, had the mentality of a teenager. Lilly was seriously the most naive person in the world. She lives at home with her parents, who treat her like she's a child until she ends up pregnant by a local dealer and in the hospital.
From that moment on, Lilly's life spirals out of control and before she finds herself married to the head of the cartel. Bad things start to happen, and always on or around Easter Sunday after that.
The book spans a course of years, and while I absolutely find myself loving it, there is at least one thing that bothered me, aside from the grammatical errors I found, Dieguito, her son with the local dealer, is barely mentioned throughout the book until almost the end. With all the time Lilly spent in that house, she seemed to care about which brother to have sex with than with her own child, who was always left with a nanny, even though his mother never went anywhere.
Lilly's sexual appetite I found to be a slightly annoying. She never seemed to know who wanted to be with and threw fits and got "confused" whenever she was caught by her husband.
All in all, the book was still able to hold my attention and I am really eager to read Brother Number Three, which is the second book in the series.
I give this book 4 of 5 paws
