BOOK REVIEW | EL DIABLO II BY M. ROBINSON

Release Date: September 8


The sins of the father became those of the son. 

Wrath for taking what was precious to me. 

Greed for the lives that were mine to kill. 

Sloth for the destruction against their will.

Lust for revenge and the blood I’d spill. 

Gluttony for the souls I craved. 

Envy for the spirits I had yet to take.  

Pride for the birthright I’d soon fulfill. 

One look. 
One moment. 
One girl. 
She was all it took for me to lose my focus.
Sienna Luciano, my eighth deadly sin. 

It was the end of me, but not my legacy. 
It was only the beginning of…

El Diablo’s resurrection. 

Allow me to introduce myself.

I’m Crucifixio Martinez.

MY REVIEW 
4 STARS
 
This was a fantastic mafia romance with an arranged marriage, secrets and suspense. It was a fast paced, dark and thrilling ride that I thoroughly enjoyed!

My sexy, arrogant mafioso absolutely made this book for me! Taking the throne from his father to become the new El Diablo.

Crucifixio Martinez
“When I stepped into a room, I demand respect…
It. Was. Mine.
The title
The authority
Alpha of the fucking pack.”

Yess! This is how you write a mafia hero. He was feared and respected. He did whatever it took to protect and defend LaFamiglia. He was ruthless with his enemies but had so much love for his family. As Sienna’s husband he had the right to claim her in any way yet he was patient and respectful, allowing her time to adjust to this life she never wanted to be a part of. I completely get off on men like Cruz who hold so much power and yet are so adoring with their women.

Sienna was a spitfire of a heroine. She grew up a mafia princess but has been counting the days she gets to escape this world. She disdained mafiosos who beat and cheat on their wives and take what they want, killing anyone standing in their way. She had no reason to expect Cruz to be different. This created sparring of epic proportions with two hot headed characters that clashed like fire and ice. Of course these heated banters eventually led to lust and validated my love for enemies to lovers romance.

I LOVE when a mafia book is done well because these men have SO much heart and passion! Crucifixio and his father Alejandro were men of honor and respect despite their cold-hearted, merciless actions at times. The loyalty to La Famiglia was everything and they did whatever was necessary to protect their loved ones. There are some dark parts to this book where Cruz walks the line of morals and ethics. I would be disappointed if this wasn’t in a mafia romance. There were a lot of twists and turns and edge of your seat suspenseful moments that made this a really quick read.

I do have to say though that this is not a standalone in my opnion. I didn’t read El Diablo (Alejandro’s story) and I felt cheated. Towards the end there are a lot of revelations and I felt a bit lost. There were clearly connections to the first book that I was missing. Alejandro has a confessions of penitents that sort of summarizes his book but it wasn’t enough for me. I think this would have been a 5 star book for me if I had read the first one. I was a bit frustrated to be honest and almost rated this less but I could not objectively do that because this book was so good. So I definitely recommend reading El Diablo before this one.
