When a Boeing 747 drops out of the sky with the men of the Cartel aboard, the women of the family have to step into their own. With the federal government on their heels and the family on the brink of destruction, a female dynasty is born.

After the government's case is thwarted, the ladies plan to take the family legit. They head west to establish a new endeavor, but with new territory comes new problems. The Carter family name doesn't ring as loud as it did in Miami. It's a new set of gangsters, a new set of rules, as the Cartel finds problems with an Arabic millionaire. Even as the new Cartel struggles to go legit, trouble always finds a way into the family's circle. Larceny, deceit, and murder are all in the cards.

The Cartel 5 is a page-turning thriller that promises to deliver. This mafia family tries to go corporate, but the streets won't let them. This is the rise of the female Cartel . . . La Bella Mafia.

same ol same ol...this whole storyline is so stale to me...after this book i'm officially done with a&j..i will not waste any more money on any of their books...why is yazmine even in the story? ii's the exact same storyline from breeze and zyir.. carter cheating on miamor? that's not even in his character from the previous books... when did everyone start calling miamor mia? and why is murder still here? there's absolutley no chemistry there he's just crazy..monroe son should be older than three years old.since he was in a coma for five years.i mean do they even remember the previous stories they wrote?? and now another sensless war has started but we all know nobody is gonna die because diamonds are forever blah blah your money, the cartel 5 is another cliffhanger..cater,indie,zyir,ethic they're all the same person!!.who cares about a story about ethic? he'll probably just live forever completely over it.

Really did the date get moved again. This is ridiculous and to say nothing knowing that people have preordered their books and are waiting on it. I love their work but there are many authors in this world to choose from. Why not drop a realistic date and let it be that. #frustratedfan #COMMUNICATE

I am a avid reader, and I am a true fan of Ashley and Jaquvis. Your books keep me going. I just laughed when the subarban housewives  got excited about 50 shades of gra Obviously they dont read our books because 50 shades of gray is truly rated G. LOL

This is saddddddd, Again this is sad and disappointing to Barnes and Noble, please do not post any of their future books as pre-purchase!!! Please remove this book from your list if you are unable to sell it. Someone really needs to contact the publisher and advise or request a statement to post on your website which would explain the difficulty in producing the product. If this ever comes out, It iwll have to be great and have an immediate follow up.

This book was purchased as a gift for a friend who likes the series and was unable to get a copy of The Cartel 5. I was pleased to find this available at Barnes and Noble.

I really enjoyed the book. Please don't make us wait nearly 2 years to read the next one. Set a date and keep it. otherwise don't bother posting it until you are sure of release date.

My order for this book was cancelled by Barnes and Noble and my order for Prada Plan 4 has been delayed! These authors and their publication company need to get it together! It makes no sense to announce a release date only to keep changing it. It seems like they have their hands in to many pots and can't keep up. I will write another review when I finally get my hands on my books!

The book was ok. I'm so over the Let's kill characters off and bring them back over and over. I've waited too long just to be left with another cliffhanger. Please make #6 the last book. It seems like you're getting bored with The Cartel. I had to push through some parts. I enjoyed the first 4 so much that I built this one up in my head far beyond its worth. It wasn't really 3 stars but it was better than 2. You 2 aregreat together but it seems like you're slipping now.

My order was cancelled by barnes and noble for this book and delayed for prada 4. I love these authors but this is unacceptable. It seems as if they are working on several different book release dates and can't keep up.

Very predictable. I'm not sure why I keep wasting my money on these series when I say each part before I even get to it. This couple owes me some money or something.

Other then that I enjoyed the book. The remaining characters coming together trying to make peace and go legit but poor Yaz lol. Sitting here drugging my guy Carter and got him in the dog house.
