Publisher's Summary

Love is the deadliest lie.

I never meant to start a war....

Then I fell for the boy my mother warned me about.

To me, he was Matty.

To the world, he was Mateo Cortes, soulless killer for the Carrera Cartel.

We were the virgin and the villain.

The debutante and the devil.

He swore we'd end in ruin.

I swore love would conquer all.

I was wrong.

One costly mistake and I’m given 30 seconds to decide my fate…. 

Inmate or informer.

Four years ago, I ran for my life.

Now, I’ve returned to claim it.

My devil will come for me…. 

And God help anyone who gets in his way.

Great read

I really enjoyed this book despite the holding the secret part and the amount of time she was going to tell him someone his phone ring and when he hangs up she said it’s not important 😂. But all in all it’s a good read. Aaron Shedlock and Sarah Puckett did an amazing job at narrating

A PLOT FULL OF INTRIGUE & FEELS

This book was so damn good.. the web that Cora Kenborn weaved has suspense and action running through it as you wait to see what revelations will be uncovered in the next chapter, what enemy will slither from the shadows and what truths will finally be spoken between doomed lovers. Leighton is the Mrs Mayor’s daughter and four years ago Leighton met the love of her life.. but, as a member of the Cartel, Mateo is the last person she should be with.. but these star-crossed lovers didn’t care. Unfortunately for them, others did, and a story of greed, money, power, revenge, blackmail, manipulation, murder, betrayal, twists and secrets secrets secrets slowly gets revealed. But can these two lovers lower their walls to let the other in? Can they trust each other again to reveal their stories and truths? And what will the bodycount be when the dust settles? A very suspenseful tale filled with intrigue, sizzles, sex and suicidal moves. Aaron and Sarah did a great job with the dual POV narration bringing the story to life. WORTH A CREDIT? Yes absolutely, it kept me riveted way into the wee hours trying to piece together clues and uncover the Puppet-master.

An EPIC dark romantic suspense story!

Faded Gray Lines is the second book in Cora Kenborn's Carrera Cartel Series. After finishing Red Blurred Lines, I was eager to get Mateo's story and WOW, Kenborn did not disappoint! The twists and turns are incredibly written. Just when I thought I knew the direction the story was taking me, I was stunned with another crazy turn of events! This is one EPIC read! It is full of corruption, betrayal and shocking deceit but underneath it is also a beautiful second chance love story.

Mateo is the underboss to the cartel leader, Valentin who was introduced in Red Blurred Lines. He has a dark and dangerous side to him but is that possessive, protective alpha type. Leighton is loyal and is as fierce as they come, but cross her and you will regret it! Leighton and Mateo have a complicated and heartbreaking past, and as they revealed their back-story it pulled at my every heartstring! Upon reconnection, the fiery passion and heat between them was explosive.

Aaron Shedlock and Sarah Puckett are super talented narrators. The way their voices pull you into this dark, suspenseful world was magnetic! I especially loved their phenomenal delivery of all the emotions their characters experience.

If you enjoy dark, mafia, romantic suspense reads, this is the one to check out!

more betrayals

The more I got into this the more invested I became. It was captivating watching the multilayered storyline peeled away piece by piece until the truths were bared for all to see. The characters are compelling and drew me in and kept me a willing hostage. Some truths are too brutal and shocking. The suspense at the end was palpable and had me reeling!!! I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review. The narrators did a great job bringing the characters and story to life.

A great mafia romance!💜

This was a fantastic second chance mafia romance. The chemistry was on fire. There was so much mafia family & blood family drama plus some plot twists that will you keep you on the edge of your seat.
The narration was fantastic. Some of the accents seemed to be stronger in parts by both narrators but overall they performed this story well and I enjoyed it very much. The conclusion of this book was particularly good.
This is book 2 with an HEA and can be read as a standalone.
I highly recommend this book/series.

A thrilling ride!

Faded Gray Lines is incredibly written and thoroughly captivating; an action-pack, suspenseful, and well-crafted star-crossed cartel romance, that hooks your right from the start. The storyline is wrapped in secrets, deception, intrigue, and enemies lurking in corners. The unexpected twists and turns made the story unpredictable; it had me guessing the entire time. The characters, Mateo, and Leighton are genuine and totally authentic; it's impossible not to get emotionally invested in them. They're magnetic, and their story is absolutely fantastic; and the chemistry is palpable, one of passion and mutual desire.

Aaron Shedlock and Sarah Puckett are true voice artists. They slipped perfectly into the characters pulling me right into the story. I was fully absorbed into Mateo and Leighton's world. All in all, Faded Gray Lines is unbelievably engaging, a thrilling and memorable ride, one I'll highly recommend.

Mateo and Leighton

Leighton loved a dangerous man once. He left her. Or so she thinks. Now their paths cross again and this time she needs protection. There’s a lot of intrigue in this story, action and also a romance that recapitulates years after. These two are so great together, and even when the plot thickens there is a light for them. Mateo is a ruthless killer but that won’t Leighton from loving him. There’s twists and turns that kept me on edge. I so enjoyed this one. The narrators did well, specially that sexy drawl when the speak Spanish.

Mateo is my new favorite anti-hero!

Loved Mateo, a member of a Houston drug cartel, who falls in love with Leighton, a corrupt politician’s daughter. Everyone has secrets, and the double-crosses will keep you guessing who can really be trusted in this criminal underworld. This story is fast-paced and well written. Aaron Shedlock and Sarah Puckett do an excellent job bringing these characters to life. Excellent book!

Faded Gray Lines

This is the second book in the Carrera Cartel series. The first book focused on Eve and Val. This book is about Laken and Mateo. Laken is the mayor's daughter and the sister of a DEA agent. Mateo is one of Val's right hand men. They have a long complicated history. I loved how this book ended! Sarah Puckett and Aaron Shedlock did a fantastic job narrating. Can't wait to see who the next book will be about.

Absolutely fantastic!

This has not just been a great story, filled with betrayal, jeopardy and intrigue, but also a live story. A hard won love story in which Leighton and Matty have a struggle to reach their HEA. Performed immaculately by Aaron Shedlock and Sarah Puckett, I really need to say how much their skilled, nuanced and convincing narration enhanced and built this story. They have kept me totally drawn in and entertained throughout. Fabulous! 💖💖💖💖💖

Keeps getting better and better

This is the second book on the Carrera Cartel series, and let me tell you is better than that first. We get Mateo and Leighton's story in this one, and their chemistry is off the charts. The storyline hooked me from the start, there is a lot of lies, deception, and revenge that kept me entertained. I got the audiobook version and let me tell you that Aaron Shedlock and Sarah Puckett did a fantastic job with this book, they are both extremely good narrators, and I love the way they portrayed Mateo and Leighton. Worth getting it in audio.

Great 2nd book

This is a great second book! Not as dark I think as the first but still unpauseable. The narration was perfection. I love Sarah’s voice so much. And Aaron is just insane - everything he does is brilliant. His Spanish accent was tastefully done as well. Definitely worth a listen!

I was provided a free copy of this audiobook, and this review is my own.

another hit

where to start... Matty and Layton were young loves. Opposite sides of the track. but a dark secret sent her running from Houston to her Grandparents house.
The story line was intense. Just when I figured something out Cora Kenborn, throws a loop ot.teist in there. so good.

Sarah Puckett amazing narrator as always. she gives characters so much life.
Aaron Shedlock, woah..I thought I had a favorite prior to this one. he is phenomenal as Mateo. I didnt want him to stop narrating
they both brought this story to life.

Awesome Listen!

Cora Kenborn has created a gripping series in the Carrera Cartel. This book is full of vibrant imagery, determination, hope, revenge, and betrayal. It totally pulled me in from the very beginning. Aaron Shedlock and Sarah Puckett were wonderful bringing the characters to life with their voices. They delivered the right emotions. I could envision so many details.
I loved the twists the author wrote and hadn't seen them coming. Thank you #pinkflamingoproductions and #audiobookobsession for recommending this fantastic listen and series. It was nice seeing cameo appearances of characters from Blurred Red Lines by Cora Kenborn in this book.
