June 25, 2021


Title: Fire & Silk
Author: Melissa Toppen
Genre: Cartel Romance
Release Date: June 25, 2021


The one word that describes my entire life.
They didn’t want me to know my true identity.
Now, I know why…

Held against my will.
I’ve become a bargaining chip in a blood feud that spans decades.

Mateo Rivera is the one calling the shots.
His father’s death put him in charge.
Now he holds all the power.

I should have known that he would ruin me the moment I laid eyes on him.
And he did.

He introduced me to a whole new world.
One filled with danger and desire.
I wasn’t just his prisoner.
I was his prize.

But as the saying goes, if you lie with the devil, you’ll wake in hell.
And now all that’s left is for me to burn.

Melissa Toppen has made me a fan!! Going into the nitty gritty cartel world and seeing how a regular woman with no knowledge of this lifestyle, became a fighter in her own right and not only did she thrive, she fucking conquered and showed you who was really the boss in this story.

Mila has always been a good girl and likes a quiet life. A dedicated home body, going out of her comfort zone is not something that she revels in but for her best friend, she makes an exception for one night. Unfortunately that one night proved to have dire consequences and opened up a whole new dangerous world for this twenty one year old.


It's been a while since I've read a cartel book and even though this one was not as dark as to what I'm used to, I still enjoyed it. I loved the connection between Mateo and Mila and I felt their chemistry from the moment they were in a room together.


If you haven't read anything from this author, I highly recommend that you start with this one. Fire and Silk will give you a bit of the dark that you're secretly craving, forbidden passion, and we get to witness not only the rise of an Empire, but the rise of a Queen.
