Songbird by AJ Adams is a Top Pick from The Romance Review!
Wow, this book blew me away! What a suspenseful, captivating look at love, and life in general, in the Mexican cartel. I loved the gutsy, super sharp heroine, too! A.J. Adams shows her great talent for dark, suspenseful romantic writing in SONGBIRD, which amazingly is only her third book. Not only was the book well written, but it was witty and erotic and the elaborate well thought-out plot kept me guessing every step of the way. I will definitely be looking for more of Ms. Adams' works in the future!
When everyone is out to get you, can the one person who could possibly save you be one of the most evil and darkest drug lords ever to exist? That's the question that Solitaire is faced with as she finds herself smack dab in the middle of a Mexican cartel war over drug territory rights in England.

Complete and standalone novel that can be read in isolation but if you've read The Bonus you'll recognise some of the characters.
“You’re the big boss.” She looked up at me and smiled. She was dressed in a cheap cotton shirt and jeans that should be on the burn pile, but that smile was pure gold. This girl had guts.
“I told José he was a fool to try and cheat you,” she said. “I wasn’t part of it, and I don’t work for you. I was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.”
She’d heard about our policy protecting bystanders. Of course it doesn’t apply to anyone whose eyewitness testimony can put me in a courtroom. Well, try to put me in a courtroom. In Mexico nobody would dare accuse me, and I’ve enough resources in England to guarantee a police investigation would come to nothing, but it’s not my style to take chances. Solitaire would be going into the ground along with Escamilla.
“Mr Vazquez,” Solitaire gave me her best smile. “I don’t expect something for nothing.” She dropped her voice. “You’d like me,” she whispered. “I’ve heard about you. We’re the same.”
“Yes, I can make you very happy.” She brushed my hand over her cheek and then kissed my palm. “I’m a very good girl,” she said quietly. “Unless you prefer a naughty one?”
She sucked my thumb, and I was instantly rock hard.
