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.
STANDALONE. New Adult Contemporary Romance: Full length novel.
Brandi’s 5+++++ star review
Okay, I know I’m late to this party and believe me I could kick my own ass for waiting to read this one. This book is purely freaking awesome, the absolute best I have read in a long time. I feel there is NO way I can write a review that El Diablo deserves but I want to yell from the rooftops for everyone to read this. (I’m being a tad dramatic)
El Diablo is nearly 500 pages and spans over decades. Personally, I love this. I’m so over books that are barely 200 pages, it’s a major no-go for me. Martinez’s story needed every page since when you first meet him he was a teenager.He is one hardcore cold-bastard (that I LOVED) but it’s not like he was born this way.Throughout this story I would be stunned over the tragedies that struck him and gaped-mouth over his retaliations but you’re not known for being ‘the devil’ by being a wuss.
I noticed some reviewers considered this book very dark, it’s not. Sure, it’s not your typical romance of boy meets girl and they live happily ever after. This man is one of the most powerful criminals in the world, shit is going to happen. I have to admit (and personally I’m giddy about) I could not figure out how this book would come together. I was totally blown away by the end and I NEVER would have predicted the outcome.
So you get my point, El Diablo kicked MAJOR ass.
