Hands down one of our favourite reads of 2016. No word of a lie, one of our favourite anti-heroes of all time. Yes, this book just grabbed us and didn’t let go till we’d read the last page. Without question El Diablo is our favourite book to date by M. Robinson. Wow…just wow it had us consumed and we have to applaud M Robinson for staying true to her characters and never sacrificing the story or their natural journey. For never giving anything away. For surprising us.
“Even the Devil was an Angel once, Alejandro. It’s only a matter of time until you become El Diablo, too.”
We loved that Alejandro’s story -because for us it truly was his story- started from an early age and took us right up to a mature older age- so decades. We felt we lived his dark, gritty and raw story alongside him. El Diablo- yes, he sure was, in so many respects. He really worked hard to gain our affection and understanding because cold and hard doesn’t even come close. But this talented Author placed some very clever and brilliant moments of transparency where you saw a side of him which you needed to see in order to fully understand the man beneath the role he was groomed to fill. A boy and young man who loved his Mum and sister with all his heart and then some. A man who never fails to try to protect those he cares about. A man who tries his all to keep people at an arm’s length in fear of them getting caught in a deadly crossfire. A man who truly just needs someone by his side loving him and loving El Diablo in equal measure.
“I can’t go back. I can’t change the things I’ve done. I am who I am. It’s too late, the darkness settled in. I own it now. It owns me. Please forgive me.”
So much tragedy, hate, despair and violence. Seriously, how many times could our hearts break in one story? Not only that, how many times would they break over one man and his love? Captivatingly visual story of Crime family’s loyalties, expectations and tragic consequences.
‘Music and dance were my peace. They made me feel whole. Turning and twisting, leaping through the air as if I had been a swan in captivity all my life. Finally, free.’
Sweet, sassy, strong, vulnerable- child victim of life, Lexi. The beautiful ballerina. She came into a story that had taken many paths only to play a momentous and powerful role. The girl, the teenager then the woman. She was a force. If words and actions could maim; her body would be marked by uncountable scarring.
‘His face inches away from mine, he opened his dark, dilated eyes, they were vacant of any life. Black pools stared down at me as I finally realized, I just met…El Diablo.’
We had no idea where this story was taking us, sure we had an inkling to some but we were surprised, and we LOVE being surprised. The writing was stellar- the story fabulous. We cannot recommend El Diablo highly enough as it was a passionate tearjerker that stole our hearts and minds. We fell in love with The Devil.
‘Every side of him consumed me. Every part of him engulfed me. He was mine. No matter what.’
‘Maybe there were just some people in the world that were born alone and died alone.’
You may not want them but tissues are required.
I have been waiting for Martinez's story since the ending of Crave Me, and this book did not disappoint. If you've read Crave Me, you know Martinez as Brigg's uncle, and a crime boss that stoops to every level imaginable to get what he wants. He's not called the devil without reason!
I adored how M. Robinson took us into Martinez's early life and we got to see him before he became the cold-hearted man he is now. The Martinez we met in the beginning of this book is sweet, a little naive, and not ready to take on the life he was born to lead. We saw him fall in love with Sophia, as well as protect his sister with everything he had, but also we saw him start to be hardened man he was in the majority of the book.
Flash forward into Part 2 and we meet Lexi. Her life isn't great, but she makes due with what she has. We get to watch her grow, and fall in love with how strong and resilient her character is. When her and Martinez cross paths, sparks fly, and I just knew we were going to be taken on the ride of our lives in this book.
Lexi and Martinez have a difficult relationship. Lexi pushes him, and he pulls further and further away, hurting her in more ways than one in this book. At times I wanted her to move on and leave him and his craziness behind, but the love she has for him is what makes this book so beautiful. No matter what he does, or what he says, she's there for him and sees the guy she knows is hidden underneath all the coldness he shows the world. Years span in this book and there are some really good times, and there are some really, really dark times for these two, and it kept me on the edge of my seat throughout the entire book.
Lexi and Martinez are not a match made in heaven, but more so purgatory. Lexi is good, resilient, and strong, where Martinez is evil, calculated, and coldhearted, but together.. together they are magic. The push and pull in this book is beautifully done, and the story was amazingly written. I loved and hated Martinez more times than I could count in this book and I wasn't sure he could ever change, or not hurt Lexi. Lexi also grew so much in this book, and how she ended up was even more stronger than she was when we first met her.
This book is steamy, sexy, dark and twisted and full of surprises. The last few chapters really had me going crazy with how everything was going to work out, but in the end, everything was perfect. If you are looking for a stand-alone novel that will keep you on the edge of your seat, I highly suggest picking up El Diablo by M. Robinson today, it's a book you won't want to put down!
Martinez, the man you'll love to hate...
Lexi has more strength than humanly possible, but damn, she's definitely kickass and deserves a happily ever after...
Will the love of an angel change the heart of the devil, or will the devil destroy the angel beyond what's fixable???
Happy reading : )
