Just when you think you know where this story is headed, BOOM, everything changes. The suspense had me sitting on the edge of my seat and mid way through you could have knocked me over with a feather at the change of pace this book provided. (less)
This book is one sensational read! It has everything from action and suspense to passion. The book has a complex storyline that immediately gets the reader immersed in the story and very intrigued. The characters are well developed and easy to identify with making them real, especially Nina Cross. This is one book that keeps you on your toes and on the edge of your seat! Don't miss this one it is terrific.
Never Trust a Saint is a great first installment in the Los Santos Cartel story. It's filled with suspense, twists, action and LUST by the end you will be hanging for more.

Jair Ruiz is there to protect Nina all the while warning her, her attraction to him and the passion they share is sizzling. On the run from those who are hunting her, she sides with the devil. Letting her guard down and letting her body take over. Jair Ruiz is a mystery and his words were true, you can never trust a Saint...
This story started off slow but held you with mystery. The attraction at the start did seem very fast paced, being an FBI agent and all. Nina isn't a strong heroine and often gave in too easily, I would have loved to have seen her put up more of a fight and become kickass. Overall, the mystery around Jair and his way with words had me wondering who this man truly was. By the end I was intrigued to find out what is store for Nina and Jair. They may have answers Nina was looking for but in the end it left an even bigger target on her head.
Well, that was a wee bit heart pumping. I just finished Never Trust a Saint in one day. I don’t get to read all day much anymore. You know the drill, life gets in the way, people to see, places to go, all the other stuff that gets put ahead of reading. But today, my little man went off to his first overnight camp. Of course, he’s not stressed at all. I hardly even got a goodbye hug from him. Bloody boys, don’t they realise it’s HARD. Mum’s worry. Anyways…I was a little bit sad. No tears mind you just an underlying worry that he might get there and realise he does miss me. I know Ha bloody HA…AS IF!! So, to distract me from my worry I started reading and boy did I get sucked in.
I realised quickly that I needed to have my wits about me. The pace is fast, the explanations come to you rapid fire and the names whiz by if you’re not paying attention. I don’t read books like this one very often and I was surprised how much I was into it. There are rival gangs, FBI agents and drug lords to keep note of. Borders and areas mapped out for distributions and places where productions take place. It was explained well, but at times I had to re-read to make sure I got it all straight.
Nina is an FBI agent who specialises in fraud and money laundering. She and her partner of a year Garcia, are good friends as well. When a tragedy happens and Garcia is killed, Nina starts asking questions. Unfortunately, she asks too many questions to the wrong people. Next thing she knows she’s the target of a drug cartel. It’s time for Nina to GO WIDE – AKA – Get the F#*K out of town.
Who can she trust? Who should she turn to? One man charges into her life when she needs him the most. Who is he? Who does he work for? Why is he helping her?
The man with many names is a bit of a ghost. He steps out of the shadows when Nina needs him, takes out the baddies when she’s at risk and carries her to safety when the bullets are flying. He also has one smoking hot body…and he knows how to use it. ;)
Nina and the man with many names at times seem like they are working together. Then it seems like Nina’s on her own fighting the world. I never really knew who were the goodies and who were the baddies and that’s a good thing. I liked the intrigue and suspense.
Never Trust a Saint was a fast-paced thrill ride from beginning to end. There are shoot em up, bullets flying, showdowns that were bloody and violent. Death seems to be coming for Nina at every turn.
There is an immediate attraction between the main characters that produce some very hot scenes. While we can’t always tell who’s side the hero is on, it’s pretty obvious that he struggles to stay away from Nina.
I enjoyed Never Trust a Saint and I was impressed with the authors work. This is the first part of a series and I wait with bated breath for the next part of the story to play out.
