Title: El Diablo II (The Devil #2)
Author: M. Robinson
My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐1/4
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Mafia Romance, Romantic Suspense
Narration: Dual POV
Primary Characters: Cruz & Sienna
This book is set in M.Robinson’s Mafia world. This is a second-generation book. I haven’t read Alejandro’s story, but this book is intriguing enough to pick his book. This story is enthralling with strong characters and twists that will make the readers anxious and excited at the same time.
Cruz and Adriana are apple of Alejandro and Lexi’s eye. They have done their best to protect their children from the horrors of their world. They have tried their best to shelter them from the dark web. But one fine day things change when enemies of the past resurface. How safe can they truly be? Cruz turns from Angel to El Diablo on the day he meets Sienna & unthinkable happens under his watch.
Sienna is a strong, determined young woman. I loved her spitfire nature. Cruz is loyal and protective of those he loves. He showcases that quite well. He is also arrogant, cruel, ruthless and will stop at nothing to protect his loved ones. I would have loved Cruz more, if author would have described more of his actions on other things apart from his main role, yet it was fulfilling. Sienna & Cruz’s relationship was a slow-burn with lots of verbal banter. Their arguments heated up the pages and I loved the buildup to what I knew would be one passionate and all-consuming connection.
Well written story with a simple narration style. Plot had several up’s & downs. It moved at slow pace initially it got fast forwarded in the mid and had a steady climax. Even with this several up’s and down’s this book will hold your undivided attention. Totally loved the glimpses of Adriana, Alejandro and Lexi. Can’t wait to unearth the Spin off story of Adriana.
Overall, I enjoyed the story. It has plenty of angst, mystery, action and drama for an exciting tale.
I voluntarily read an ARC of this book in exchange for honest review.
