I could’ve fucking strangled her. She knew it too because she stepped away quickly. “Touch me and I’ll have you!” she snarled.“Bruja mala leche! What the fuck do you think you’re playing at! You can’t push me around!”“Sure I can.” Her eyes were slate grey, the same colour as the sky, and just as cold. “I need help, and you’re going to give it.” “What the hell are you talking about?”“I’ve got a situation. I need someone who isn’t afraid of murder and mayhem.”I should have charmed her, offered to help and maybe it would have settled it, but I was too mad to even consider it. “Help you? Over my dead fucking body!”She shrugged. “We can do it that way, too.” She took out her phone. “I’ll call you soon, hopefully within the hour. If you still refuse, I call Smith.” The eyes were hard. “I’d rather not shop you, because I hate that bastard, but I will if you make me.”I gave her my number. I mean, I wanted to kill her, but in London they notice things like bodies in the street. Especially if you’re careless enough to do it in broad daylight next to a cop shop.
Quique is having a bad time. Back in Mexico his marriage has fallen apart and his wife has made him a laughing stock by cheating on him. Now he’s in London and finding himself out of his depth with a complex commercial deal. To make things worse, Natalia Truelove, a chef and pub manager, is blackmailing him. Quique is ready to commit murder and he’s pretty sure who his first victim will be.
Warning: Dirty Dealings contains strong adult language and themes as well as graphic violence and fully depicted love scenes.

This was a really interesting story. Quique is part of the Mexican mafia sent to London to take care of a project while there he runs into Natalia a normal everyday British chick except she’s not normal. She’s done some things to protect her family and she would do it again. So Quique and Natalia have this love/hate relationship until about half way through the book and that’s where most of the action happens. I found the second half of the book more interesting because it was one thing after another after another. The first half of the book is more the set up and description of both characters and their lives. I’m not used to reading mafia type stories so this was a really cool read.
