A BOOK BAR REVIEW: MONEY DEVILS 1

Updated: Oct 1, 2020


From the New York Times bestselling authors of The Cartel series comes a new chapter in a world that only Ashley and JaQuavis know how to bring to life.


The LaCroixs are four beautiful Haitian American women bound by money and blood. On the surface, the LaCroix Group is a venture capitalist company, but underneath, it’s so much more. The four sisters run long cons, targeting wealthy, prominent business figures. They have a system: Find the perfect mark, create the problem, then present the solution. For a cost…


Sutton “Sutty” LaCroix, the eldest sister and an accomplished business maven, sits on the family throne as the CEO of the LaCroix Group and is the face of their operation. No one is as good as Sutton when it comes to finding new prey.


However, when Sutton meets West, a young, black oil tycoon—a man who represents a life she and her sisters vowed never to live—she breaks all the rules. The LaCroix sisters have a pact: to never settle down and leave roots in one place. But Sutton falls in love with West’s good looks, charm, and old money. This means that West is a problem. When he inducts her into a high society of opulence, power, and generational wealth, Sutton finds herself torn between the love of her life and the love of her family.


 

REVIEW:


Wow!!! This one keeps you on the edge of your seat with every page. Money Devils 1 is the spin-off of New York’s bestselling series, “The Cartel”. Since this is my first book by this dynamic writing duo, I was not familiar with some of the backstories. However, that didn’t take away from the story. It only made me want to partake in the Cartel series. I can already tell that these authors know how to bring vivid imagery making you feel as if you were there.


In this read, I had the pleasure of meeting the LaCroix family, but the highlight of the story was the 4 sisters, all beautiful, intelligent, strategic in their moves, and dangerous at the same time. Their journey starts with the illegal world of their father and uncle. Learning from the best and putting their unique footprint on the LaCroix legacy. Sutton, the firstborn built a corporate empire targeting wealthy businesses and the figures that ran them. Creating a problem then swoop in and save them…genius!


The LaCroix Group is A listed and the go-to for cleaning up the messes the privileged want to keep hidden. When Sutton breaks her own rule, falling for the mark, it is this emotional distraction that sends things in a downward spiral. What they didn’t see coming was landing in the crosshairs of their family nemesis.


Money Devils 1 is a great read filled with lots of action, twist and turns to keep you engage throughout the entire read.
