“The Cartel”

The Cartel is a family with unbreakable bonds that deals with drugs and violence. Carter Diamond – one of the main characters in the book, is the cruelest gangster among the Cartel. Living in Miami, Florida, he is familiar with the crimes that run rapidly around his life, but there is one thing that is most precious to him – Carter is determined to keep his relatives and family save and away from any crimes or harm. Despite the fact that he knows all he’s doing is risky, he doesn’t get stopped by anything standing on his way, so he can keep his family away from the Haitans who constantly make threats to destroy his entire life. Carter is married and has a baby daughter and two twin boys who want nothing else but to model their prosperous Father. However, he lets them know that all this lavishness, fame and money come in their family at a steep price. Unfortunately, Carter’s life is suddenly cut short because he is shot dead and only his children can carry on with his inheritance.

Carter Diamond leaves behind an illegitimate son who looks just like him, not only in facial features, but also his Father’s reputation. There is one problem however – Carter Diamond does not want to do anything with his Father. To the extent that he is concerned, he was alone growing up and his Father was never there, hence he doesn’t own him any favor. Nevertheless, when he finds that his family is in indescribable trouble, he forgets the past and gives his best to heal the wounds. His brothers and sister go through a hard time getting used to him, but eventually start modeling his behavior. Meanwhile, Miamor (a woman who uses her beauty to develop her skills as a contract killer) is going out on a man-hunt after her sister dies from the hands of a Cartel member. Conversely though, she gets easily attracted to Carter junior who does not know anything about her dark past. This is a Family collision over secrets, violence and crimes series, mafia-style book about caring for the ones you love.

“The Prada Plan”

Disaya – a 6-year old girl in her tender age, also known in the series as Yaya, practically learns the class of fashion design and the significance of living with a plan in life, not just an ordinary strategy to live, but a Prada Plan. A tragedy shakes Yaya’s world when her beloved parents are eliminated (the mother is killed, the father sent to jail), and she is all of a sudden forced to forget her life of being the center jewel in her parents’ hearts. Yaya is instantaneously defaulted to becoming a foster child. There, she gets nightly molested by the son of her foster Mother. Being raped at the innocent age of 7, the only hope and spirit she has left is her new sister companion Mona and the memory of her Mother’s voice.

Together with Mona they leave the house of despair and then the story of the book fast forwards to their early life at age 21. The duo is at last living a fairly stable life of freedom; at the same time however, Yaya has not yet attained her child dream – The Prada Plan. While persistence is a great asset in her life, Yaya is not embarrassed to confess that she’s just a Rocawear chick and will jump great heights to become famous as a high fashion expert.

Following the same life steps her Mother followed (becoming a prostitute) and having absolutely stunning beauty, it is not hard for to Yaya to begin selling herself to the highest paid, elite people. Once introduced to Leah, Yaya starts participating in same sex adventures and the whole thing in-between. A businesses relationship and a friendship turn into an obsession, as the heroin struggles in her attempt to stop the bizarre behavior of Leah and put an end a hoeing life, after meeting Indie and falling in love –the only person in the novel who can fulfill The Prada Plan. Leah’s mania for Yaya is far from physical; it is a mental evil dependency that she will endure any obstacle with the sole purpose of hurting Yaya and everybody else in her life.
