NEVER TRUST a SAINT- a LOS SANTOS cartel story #1
A protector from evil. One who without fear will lead you safely through darkness. 
Cold and ruthless. A CARTEL who cares only for revenge and glory. 
My name is Nina Cross, and I’m the Los Santos’s newest prey. Determined to prove my partners innocence and avenge his violent death, I stumbled naively into the spider’s web. Tangled with lies and hunted for truth I was shadowed with each step I took. That was until one man, relentless in his touch and his desire threatened to bring me to my knees in ways I both craved and feared. 
Jair Ruiz. Powerful, brooding and confident and not at all who he seems. He has me in his sights and has every intention of toying with his newest target while fighting to keep us both alive. 
When the FBI turns it back on you and Los Santos cartel have already dug your grave, who is there left to trust?
Only one man. A saviour. 
But if I look my saint in the eye and all I see is the devil…do I run?
Jair sat back in his chair and drained the last of his wine, eyes locked on mine. “I understand your apprehension, cariña. I do, honestly. But what I see is a woman who without me is quite easily going to be six foot under as soon as she tells me to walk. What you are choosing to see is a hero who can save you from the men seeking your blood. When in reality they and I, we all stem from the same societies soaked in deceit, violence, drugs and treachery. Fact of the matter is, I’ve killed for precisely the same reasons they’ve killed. My boot has walked through the blood of victims the same amount of times as they’ve strung theirs up from a bridge. I can be your saint for a day, a night, a week, but at the end of our time together just know that even the devil was an angel
Shanda's Review
4 stars
Never Trust a Saint was an unexpected surprise for me. I have been wanting to give this author’s work a try but I keep forgetting I have her books on my tbr. I am glad that I took a chance on this book it hooked me immediately and kept me there. I will definitely be diving into her other series soon.

Nina is a rookie FBI agent on the run from a drug cartel after her partner is killed. Nina doesn't know who to trust because everyone is turning on her. She thought things were just fine and doesn't understand why anyone would be after her. Now she is on the run from the FBI and warring cartels trying to get answers to clear her name as well as her partners.

Enter Jair Ruiz, a dangerous stranger that she meets briefly at a charity ball. Jair then shows up in her home to warn her about trusting the wrong people. They have a passionate encounter and then he disappears. As Nina runs for her life Jair reappears, and she doesn’t know whether to trust him, or run from him.

I really can’t say much more about the story due to spoilers. I will say at times Nina was frustrating because I felt she wasn’t getting what was going on around her. It made me question her ability as an agent but she makes up for this towards the end to some extent. Jair was dark and mysterious and I am really curious to know more about him. I hope he achieves what he sets out to do. I am anxious for the second book and yes this is TBC but I didn’t feel like it was a cliffy. I think the author left it in a good place where I am intrigued to get more, but not angered over a cliffy. I also liked the steam level in this. Nina and Jair have some great scenes but they aren’t overdone. Never Trust a Saint is a gritty, violent, and twisty read. Well worth the read, and left me hooked enough to see where the story goes. Well done!
