    First of all let me say that Ashley and Jacquavis are great writers whether they are writing as a duo or individually. I didn't like the direction that this book went in though. Why you ask? Let me tell you.....First, the characters were not true to themselves. I don't believe that Carter would have let the "beef" between his two brothers escalate into an all out war. I know that Money's reappearance was shocking, but Carter is a thinker and he would have found a way to appease both Zyir and Money.Since we are talking about Money, he acted more like Mecca. He popped off without thinking things through and that is not in his character. He would've thought about his finances before he started beefing with Zyir. Zyir was the only male in this book was has been consistently the same throughout the series.Secondly, too many dead people came back. I had already funeralized the two characters in books one and three respectively. Why did the writers feel a need for their return? If they couldn't write a story without them, maybe the series should have stopped at book three. Its time for extended sequels to come to a stop, because we start to get books like this. It wasn't bad, but I feel like all the time that I invested in these characters through three books was in vain, because they changed, for the worst, or they were resurrected from the dead. I feel like I wasted my time with reading the other books.IJS....

    Let me start by saying I am not a huge fan of The Cartel series like most people. I loved the first book and I enjoyed the second book until the dream portion. As for the third installment it was just okay, but A&J really killed it for part 4. From the first page I was completely drawn in, never knowing what was going to happen next. They say blood is thicker than water, but blood doesn't always equal loyalty. Carter and Zyir are loyal to one another and they expect the same out of anyone in their crew. One crew member seems to have a different opinion all because he wants to be the one to sit on the throne as the leader of the infamous Cartel and he will stop at nothing to get that title. Cartel 4 was full of murder, sex, and drugs. Everytime I thought the situations were resolved, something else would happen. The way it ended there has got to be more because Diamonds are forever! I can't wait for part 5 La Bella Mafia, I know these chicks are going to bring it!

    I'm not going to sit here and give y'all a long drawn out play by play of everything that went down in this book. However, I will tell you that Ashley JaQuavis did not disappoint in this 4th installment of The Cartel Series. From the very first page, I was pulled in. The Cartel 4: Diamonds Are Forever is full of drama,murder, lies,and deceit. It had so many twists and turns that I definitely did not see coming. I loved the vividness of it all. It was almost as if I was there with the characters, experiencing each and everything they experienced.I laughed, I cried, I was in shock. I've been rocking with Ashley JaQuavis from their very 1st release and they've proven, once again, why they are on the top of my favorite author's list. I can't wait for " La Bella Mafia". 5 stars!~Black Faithful Sisters and Brothers Bookclub~

    While browsing the bookshelves of the library trying to find a quick read, I came across The Cartel 4 by Ashley Antoinette Snell and JaQuavis Coleman. I heard mixed reviews about The Cartel series, so I was unsure if I was going to end up liking the book by the end. Once I got through the first chapter of the book, I couldn’t put it down although I was confused about certain events that may have happened in the previous books of the series. The Cartel 4 tells the story of Monroe Diamond returning back home after being pronounced dead to his family and enemies and being in a coma after a shootout with his brother. Things have changed within the Diamond family when Monroe returns; He finds out that one of his brother’s friends are running the drug cartel empire and also finds out he has a son with Leena, his deceased brother's girlfriend. Monroe is quickly angered by this, believing the Diamond empire should be a family affair, and instantly plots against Zyir. Aside from Monroe returning back, Miamor returns back into the Diamond family by appearing on young Carter’s doorstep one night. Carter is instantly happy and angered by this. He thinks Miamor is dead, and has a hard time coping with her death. He is glad that she’s still alive, but still angry because he killed his brother because of her. Regardless of his anger towards Miamor, young Carter takes her back as she promises not to betray him again. The Cartel 4 bounces around other stories of the characters, but the main one that is the focus is the book is Monroe's beef with Zyir. Monroe resents Zyir because of his position in the Diamond family he takes on while Monroe is gone. Monroe does everything in his power to get rid of Zyir from trying to set him up in Rio, trying to take over the drug cartel with his new empire, and trying to kill him at his own wedding. Young Carter is caught in the middle of Monroe & Zyir's beef, not knowing whether to take his blood brother's side or to take his best friend's side. In an effort to settle the conflict and to get away from the Feds, young Carter flies himself and the men out to the Bermuda Triangle to never be seen again, leaving the ladies of the Diamond empire to take over. The Cartel 4 was filled with suspense and action about what the characters would do next, making it a great read. I can't wait to read the rest of the series including the next book that should be released in around October/November to find out what happens.

    I hold urban fiction to a lower standard than your general fiction books. To me they are fun little escapes that I switch to whenever everything else is just too much. Usually Ashley & JaQuavis are head and shoulders above other urban fiction writers when it comes to plot continum and editing. The first Cartel book is still one of my favorite stories, urban fiction or otherwise. However, in this outing I felt let down. The whole, everyone comes back from the dead, or wasn't really dead in the first place storyline was just plain silly. How many times can you kill off and revive the same characters? It didn't help that I know that the plane crash in the end was just another way to kill the boys and yet in The Cartel 5 they'll be back and it'll all be an elaborate hoax to keep the feds off their case. Another issue that bothered me throughout this story is Monroe Jr. Based on the fact Monroe Sr. had been in a coma for 5 years, the child would have to be at LEAST 4 years old. Yet he is continuously referred to as "the baby" and treated as such. If you didn't put the math together you would think he was a toddler. It's a small detail but for me those type of details matter when I'm expected to withold belief over and over again.

    I was not impressed. Everyone coming back to life was soap operaish. I will read the cartel 5 because the girls will be reigning. Hopefully it will bring something better.

    I'm a huge fan of A&J...but I want gonna write a review because I didn't want to give anything away in the I will just say first I was little skeptical about reading this book...even tho I love the whole Cartel series...I felt as if the good characters had died off....then I was like...Ok it's been over a year there's noway they can make this story any better...but after reading this...I must admit I love how they orchestrated this whole book...I love the plots, the twists and all...I was truly amazed at a lot of the outcomes...Normally in A&J books some of the main characters that you grow to love dies that sometimes keeps me from rushing to read their books...but this one here was absolutely amazing...I can't wait to read the Cartel 5...#TeamCarter

    lines are drawn, guns are drawn, sides have to taken. is family truly family...are diamonds truly forever? resurrected characters appear and decisions have to be made, to accept them back into the fold or will they be left broken hearted in the cold. love and allegiances are strange things,can Carter maintain his gangsters, family and love...or will he fall victim to these emotions? #4 continues this seemingly never ending saga with no closure, New subplots and the promise of more to come. did I enjoy this read...mos def! does it capture your attention, mesmerize you with each scenario...mos def! the author' s talent is profound, but after riding with them for so long, personally I am looking for fresh storylines,New characters and more creativity showing their consistent growth as vets in this game! Show me whatcha working with!!! that' s all I'm saying.3.88

    This book seemed a bit rushed and shorter than usual. Perhaps it was used as a transition to a new era in Cartel 5. Overall is was a great read! Loved how one of my favorite characters came back to life!

    I was greatly entertained as I expected to be! I am anxiously awaiting Part 5!!! Some how I feel that the ending is not what it appears to be!!!! YOU CAN NEVER GO WRONG by selecting the CARTEL Series to read! Great job!!!

    You never know if the dead is truly dead in this series...This was another entertaining read. I think the author did a great job of developing characters and re-developing characters throughout the book. There was always something changing in regards to the plot, interactions between characters and just the demeanor of the character themselves. I am shocked that I am actually looking forward to the FIFTH book in this series....yes, the FIFTH book and there are two more after that to go!

    The Cartel series has been exciting and had me wondering whats next..... NO LONGER I waited and waited for part 4 ONLY to keep having everybody come back from the dead then to have it end the way it did. Was AWFUL because of the foreshadowing, We all no the plane didn't crash and somehow, some day Zyir, Carter, Money will reappear and then another war will just get started because now the ladies not gone want to just sit in the back and watch money being made. smh I just feel like there is NEVER going to be an ending and I hate a book like that! I give 4 stars for the books because it is a good read I just wanna know when will people actually start dying and NOT coming back to live.... another thing If Monroe Jr. is 4 why is not walking and talking on his own... The 4yr olds that surround me, have full on conversations so im not understanding all the shielding of this toddler. Another problem that I am having with this read is that Miamor didn't know she was pregnant before they went to Rio, weeks after returning she found out about the baby which I can understand. But I don't understand when they returned from Rio 2 weeks or so Murder kidnap her and after a week if even a week she get released, run for dear life and somehow ends up at the hospital with breeze AND when the nurse was talking to Carter she stated the baby was born @ 6 months. I mean dang how far along was she... To many little details are killing me, so I would like for it to end so

    If I'm being honest, I still haven't gotten over the shenanigan that was Book 2. Because of that farce, I'm skeptical of each book now. Sometimes this series is good and thrilling and sometimes it just misses the mark completely with me. Ashley & Jaquavis have created their own universe of characters with the various series, which I like but it just seems as if they keep stories and certain story lines alive, when it should just be put to rest. I really want the dead people to stay dead. Specifics about this book I hated... I do not believe in the "Come to Jesus" meeting that Carter had where everyone aired out their dirty laundry. I think the way it played out was crazy. Am I supposed to believe that everyone in that room would have kept their cool with the bombshells that were dropping? So Estes decided to keep Monroe alive, but was still pushing up on Leena? It was made clear several times that he was ALL about Blood Family. He had to believe that Monroe would recover one day. It's also hard to believe that Estes would be a snitch. The biggest issue I have with this book is Breeze. Why do the authors continue to write her as this naïve young adult that needs to be sheltered from everything? She's arguably been through more than all the other characters and yet she still gets written like an oblivious child.

    The Cartel 4: Diamonds are Forever by Ashley & JaQuavis was a good and interest book to read. I enjoyed reading this book because it’s always on the point, well-written and well-characters. Once again, both of authors never disappointed me for this book and they did a good job.Like: Carter Jones, Mecca and Monroe “Money” Diamond are remind me of their father. They are business and family men. Carter Jones likes both of his brothers Mecca and Money but he never choose side for both of his brothers and his friend Zyir.Dislike: I thought Monroe “Money” Diamond died in The Cartel 2 but he’s still alive in this book. Monroe “Money” Diamond is not the same as the first The Cartel before Mecca died in The Cartel 4: Diamonds are Forever. He used to be smart and intelligent kid in The Cartel 1 & 2 but he is remind me of Mecca in The Cartel 4: Diamonds are Forever because he is evil and jealous of Carter Jones. I don’t like Estes because he is a snake.So far, this book is really good and I enjoyed reading this book. I felt bad what’s happen to Mecca. Both of authors and this book deserve a five stars. I’m looking forward to read more about Carter Diamond, Carter “Young Carter” Jones and rest of Diamonds. Also, I’m looking forward to read The Cartel part 5.

    This book totally redeemed itself from the Cartel 3: The Last Chapter. There were so many turns of events, and shocking things that were happening I literally couldn't believe it all. I don't want to give it away, but a lot of wrongs that were done in the previous book were done right in this book. The action was there. It was ruthless, and there was plenty of good loving all around as well. For once, A&J didn't kill everyone in sight so that was a welcome change. I am so happy that this saga is going to continue because there were many things left unfinished. I just hope the next book is as good as this one.

    2019-03-11 21:41 almost didn't read this book but I am so happy that I did! I couldn't wait to have a moment to read. I would start reading and find myself staying up later and later trying to finish. I'm not even sure where to begin this review. This book was so action packed that trying to give a review is nearly impossible. Just know that it's an excellent read that's going to make you lose sleep and keep turning the pages while you try to figure out what's next. On to book 5. I'm curious to see what the ladies have up their sleeves

    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.This book seemed a bit rushed to me. OK read! I hated two of the characters came back to life! Let the dead stay dead. I wanted Carter to spare his brother’s life because it was the right this to do. I am a bit disappointed.

  • Meeyah

    I honestly believe that the book could have been better. All these past characters coming back to life and Breeze surviving being sliced up in the stomach area while on a plane is highly unrealistic. I really haven't liked the cartel series since the first book and i just keep reading to finish the series, but its getting harder and harder to finish each book.

    I had several issues with this book. Normally their writing is good and the plots are well thought out, but this book was horrible. It just pissed me off, it felt rush and I had to forced myself to finish reading it. Don't get me started on the mess on the plane, or certain dead people, becoming alive. It was just all over the place.
