USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR M. ROBINSON
COVER DESIGN: THE FINAL WRAP
RELEASE DATE: AUGUST 30TH, 2016
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
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.
“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.
**REVIEW BY LIZ**
I love angst in books. It kills me, but I love it. It keeps me turning the pages and wanting to know what happens next. I have a list of books I love because of angst alone. And there are authors who love to torment readers with angst. And then there is M. Robinson. She is in a universe all her own. She is the queen of angst. THE. QUEEN. OF. ANGST. And she did not disappoint with El Diablo. If anything, she upped the angst to new levels.
El Diablo gives us Alejandro Martinez. A man born into a life he never asked for, but accepted it, because it was expected. Even as a young boy, he knew what his future would be. But even then he accepted his fate, thinking he had a choice in what matters and could still build his own life separate from what was expected. Until everything was yanked away from him.
After realizing what being a Martinez truly means, Alejandro accepts the only future left for him. He becomes and embraces el Diablo. Nothing and no one would stand in his way. He became a man who was worth more dead than alive. Feared and respected. Love was not in the cards for him. Ever.
Lexi was everything Martinez did not deserve, but wanted. She fell into his life when he least expected it, but somehow enraptured him. From a young age, Lexi learned to only depend on herself. When tragedy strikes, she feels so lost and alone, but her nightmare is only now beginning. All that brings Lexi peace and happiness is ballet. She dreams of a future filled with dancing. Then she meets the devil and her life is never the same.
This story is so twisted, in some ways very dark, and the betrayals and secrets unbearable and at times unforgivable. There was one point as I was reading that I literally gasped, put my eReader down and just cried. I felt like my heart could not take anymore. That is the kind of author M is. She takes your heart, grips it and does not give it back to you in one piece.
There were times I hated, hated Alejandro. I felt there was no redeeming him. And then we would get insight into his demons and my heart would break for him. But sometimes it takes an angel to lead the way. Even as he tried to show her he was no good, she stood strong and fought for what she wanted. But how long can you fight a losing battle before giving up?
This book gutted me! Consumed me. Devastated me. This author pours her heart and soul into her books and you feel every last bit of it. An amazing, freaking amazing, must read book! YOU NEED TO READ THIS! Not an easy journey, but one that will take you through a lifetime of pain, regrets and loss and maybe, just maybe redemption.
El Diablo by M. Robinson was an angst filled 5+ read I could not put down!
