I was ruthless.
I was feared.
I had sacrificed. Myself. Her. Everything...
Living in a world where I was worth more dead than alive was a choice. I was a bad man, never claimed to be anything else. I’ve done things I’m not proud of. Seen things that can’t be unseen. I’ve caused pain that I can’t undo.
It was all my choice.
Right and wrong never mattered.
She was under my protection, until she became my obsession.
But who was going to save her...
From. Me. The devil himself.
Fate brought us together. Destiny destroyed us.

ARC received from author for an honest review
The Queen of Angst M. Robinson has done it again.
Each and every time I read a new book from her I tell myself it can't be any better than the last one.
And then she blows me away once again.
We met Alejandro "El Diablo" Martinez in Crave Me, but you don't have to have read it to get into El Diablo (though why you would want to miss a word this woman writes is beyond me).
I was up way past my bedtime on a work night to finish reading El Diablo. And boy, is this man a devil.
But each and every time I though of him as El Diablo, he would do something to throw my head and heart into a state of confusion.
"I'm the wolf, the one your momma warned you to stay away from."
This book needs to come with a #MindFuckWarning - then again, I should never expect anything less from Ms Robinson!
I went through the whole emotional rollercoaster, from the highest of highs to the lowest of lows. Love and hate. Fear and joy. Pain, so much pain.
And just when I thought I had my head around what was going on... my mind was blown again. There were some things that I really, really did not see coming!
"It was overwhelming. It was frightening. It was all consuming. It. Was. Everything."
I don't want to give anything away in my review as El Diablo, as with all M. Robinson books, is something you need to experience for yourself.
Chapter by chapter, page by page you are drawn into the Devil's world, the darkness that consumes him and those around him.
Gah, I really am not doing this book any justice with my words. It is the next day and I am still trying to process everything that I read.
Like Nike says, just do it. Jump in the deep and and read El Diablo. You won't be disappointed.
“Go stretch again, cariño,” I ordered in a dominant tone. Nodding to the barre.
“I’m fine,” she stubbornly replied. Shaking her legs and arms out. Getting back into position, looking at me through the mirror.
I cocked my head to the side, arching an eyebrow. She narrowed her eyes at me, but begrudgingly listened. I pressed play, allowing the melody to once again take over. She placed her leg on the lowest barre, making her ass stick out in my direction.
She closed her eyes, needing to get lost in the music, wanting to push away all the negative thoughts, already feeling discouraged. I stood, taking off my suit jacket. Rolling up the sleeves of my collared shirt as I stepped onto the hardwood floor. I slowly came up behind her, catching her off guard.
She froze, turning around, opening her eyes. Peering up at me through her lashes. “What are you doing?”
I leaned forward against her ear, grinning. “I’m helping you stretch.” Getting down on my knees in front of her.
Her eyes dilated. The feeling of disappointment replaced with nothing but lust. She placed her arms out to the side, resting up against the barre, supporting her weight. I grabbed her ankle, lifting it up in the air, rubbing along her leg as it was fully stretched, before setting it on the lowest barre. Running my other hand up her side, easing her over toward the extended leg. She understood what I was doing, reaching for her ankle, stretching. Standing back up, bringing her arms above her head, I caressed along her leg again, casually turning her torso so her leg was still placed on the barre behind her.
Her breathing hitched as I touched her all over her lower body. My lips softly kissing the inside of her thigh to where she wanted my mouth the most.
