Title: El Diablo
Author: M Robinson
This is a spin off from the good old boys series.
M. Robinson is one of the authors coming to FBBF17 in November so I’ve had her on my TBR for a while. When this came out I loved the cover and so many people raved about it that when I got the chance I read it!
I really liked the writing style and it has a fabulous ending. It felt to take a long time to get there. I’ll. other sure if it is just a long book but it felt to take a long time to get from the beginning to the end.
I guess timeliness wise it did, her entire lifetime and before. The story felt a bit circular and the same things kept happening. It’s all explained eventually but some of it felt a bit unnecessary, it didn’t expand the story any further and so I’m not sure if it was needed.
The writing is great though; very descriptive, and there is a good flow throughout the book. There are some references that I didn’t get, having not read the main series, but that just means I need to read the main series too lol
For me, it didn’t live up to the expectation, but I may have built it up too much before reading. Also, having not read the main series I don’t know the writers style as well as I might. Perhaps this shouldn’t have been my first book by this author. That’s not her fault, just an error on my part.
As I say the writing is good, but read the main series first!
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.
