From USA Today Best Selling Author

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.

Every decision.

Every order.

Right and wrong never mattered.

Until her.

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.

This was the story I have been waiting for, I was so excited to read the book about El Diablo, the devil and I have to say this book blew me away ..... How did Alejandro Eduardo Martinez become that man, this book tells you how and why he became the devil. He runs a worldwide mob empire, the law bends for him and men fear him but there is one woman who can see through the bad , but she will be his weakness as well as his salvation. Lexi has a hard life right from childhood and Alejandro wants to protect her but is it protection from life or protection from him that she needs. This book has so many secrets and Alejandro is a man you want to hate but even though you hate his lifestyle it's hard to hate the man. This story will keep you guessing right to the last chapter and even though The Good O'l Boys come into the book it can most definitely be read as a standalone. Fantastic read from M.Robinson I was given this book for an honest review

this book had me seriously worried that it would have a terrible ending and that I would end up crying my eyes out over it. It started out slow, showing the main characters in point of views as children and then slowly following them through their trials into adulthood. I loved Martinez, and then hated him, loved him, and then hated him again. I switched between the feelings so many times I lost track, but it was for good reasons and at no point did I want to stop reading their story. the author leaves alot of mysteries unsolved until the end and I like that, it kept me intrigued. I worried a little that he was about to come out as her father and I would have been done with the book ( that's a hard line I wont cross with reading) but it ended up not being so ( so no worries there for any interested readers, you'll have to read to find out what role he plays in her life and who her father is ) :) well worth the read.

This was an amazing read and I defiantly recommend it. It has a little bit of everything, romance, deception, drama, and of course those naughty bits. I can assure you, you will not be disappointed. This is a book about Alejandro Martinez (aka El Diablo) he is a huge leader in organized crime and ends up falling in love with Lexi, but he pushes her away because he doesn't want to ruin her. The thing I like about M. Robinson is that she begins the characters journey from they were young until they're adults. I promise you will not be disappointed and once you've read this book you will defiantly want to read more of her books (at least I did).

I received a free ARC in exchange for an honest review. I HATED this book. I hate that despite asking the author before via previous reviews (that I know she's read) that she STILL doesn't put warnings or didn't put a warning out about the book. I hate how many people love this book. I hate that it's 2016 and books that AREN'T historical/regency/etc romances still have men owning women and it being a "joke" that the daughter won't ever be allowed to date because of the father and his desire to never see HIS babygirl not date. Like, I literally CAN'T describe how angry I am with this book. If you enjoyed 50 shades of grey, this book will be right up your alley with the ignoring the mental and emotional abuse he puts her through. If you didn't, I can't in good conscience recommend this book.

Not worth the read

Okay so, I found this book from a friend of mine shared on Facebook and She's a wonderful writer and I LOVE her taste. So it wasn't hard for me to purchase this book, but sweet Jesus it had me reeling. One minute I'm crying, the next I'm angry, the next I'm lusting. So many twist and turns and so beautifully written. Ahhh I'm still a wreck. It will take me a while before I can re read this. My heart can't take it!!!? Can I give It more stars???

I was anticipating this one after reading Crave Me seeing how that one ended. I have to say I didn't quite picture Alejandro that way he truly is. Don't get me wrong he's definitely a El Diablo, but you get to see the side of him he keeps secret. You can see the daily war he rages within himself for the life that he lives. He has experience so much in his life and it just keeps piling up, but soon he has a bright light in his life. That is another war that he grapples within himself regarding Lexi. There is some twists I never saw coming that made me gasp. How much I wanted to dislike Alejandro then he would do something to pull me back to his side. Lexi hasn't had any easy life right from a young age. She finally thinks her life is on track, but soon that derails quickly. She soon finds herself at the mercy of Alejandro. Her life will never be the same again. M Robinson weaved her magic yet again. Though this is one has a darker feel to it she leaves me on the edge of my seat, but delivers a story that just grips my heart yet leaves me with a smile on my face once the book is over.

I can’t tell you the last time I read a book that had me on such a roller coaster ride of emotions---where I had such a visceral reaction to the gripping story, the unforgettable cast of characters, and the gorgeous writing that make up EL DIABLO…perhaps not ever! That’s saying something with over 1,200 books on my e-readers. This book is my first M. Robinson read and it won’t be my last. IT WAS EVERYTHING! As a new reader to this author, I had no idea what to expect…no trust in her that she would give me the ending that I craved, but rest assured, she gave me what I needed from this story and SO MUCH MORE! It’s an epic saga, spanning the course of half a century. We meet the hero of the story as a young teenager, heir to become the leader of the most feared crime family in the country. Alejandro Martinez grows up to be one of the most mercurial and conflicted book heroes I’ve ever met, and you will both love and hate him multiple times throughout this book. I wanted to hate him for hurting the people he loves most, but HOW can you hate him when he does it BECAUSE of his love for them? Lexi is my favorite type of heroine: strong, resilient, beautiful, and unafraid. Her ballet dancing is her only escape, her only peace. “All little girls wanted a Prince Charming. A knight in shining f-----g armor. Little did she know, I was the villain in this story.” Their union is unlikely, but Alejandro’s family history puts him in Lexi’s path, giving way to one of the most heart-pounding, tragic, and breathtaking stories I’ve ever read! “Every Devil needs an Angel. And she was mine.” I was afraid to put this book down, for fear of what I’d be missing. It will reel you in and hold you until the very last page. The twists and turns were NEVER-ENDING, and you will gasp out loud with each new revelation. M. Robinson’s stellar writing gives way to storytelling at its absolute best. There is no way you are prepared for what unravels in this book…you can’t NOT read it. You’ve written something special M. Robinson…UTTER PERFECTION!!!

Love is so powerful Reading El Diablo will make you hate and love Martinez as well. He is a devil in a mix way. I think El Diablo is the best book for me from the author M. Robinson. This sexy little girl will drive you crazy as always. She likes to play with your mind, heart and especially your soul. She always did an amazing job on her story. El Diablo is so intense, so emotional and oh so good. You might scream, throw your e-reader and hold your breathe. You are in for a bumpy but sweet ride. Hang on tight. El Diablo is a funny book as well. My husband thinks I am crazy 'coz I just laugh while reading my Nook. It is so hot even though Summer is almost over. You might need a fan or perhaps a cold water with lots of ice next to you while reading El Diablo. There are so many ahh moments in the book. I was shocked but amazed aswell. Miss M. Robinson you nailed this book. Thank you so much for bringing El Diablo. Life is boring without the devil in a crazy and sweet way. Disclosure: I received an ARC in exchange of my honest review.

An intoxicating tale of deceit, intrigue, and passion with an incredible story of love. There are many twists and turns that you won't see coming. Alejandro Martinez is a dark and beautiful mobster. Life has left him bitter, hard, and full of a lifetime of regrets. From the moment he sees her, he wants her. For him it's always been her. Lexi is a woman who has been knocked down by life but keeps standing. She copes, she fights, she loves. Through her dancing she finds healing. This book will give you all the feels. I loathed Martinez as much as I hated him. My hating him didn't last long. Describing Martinez and Lexis's relationship is like lightning striking for the first time and you feel the energy running through your veins. This was a feeling that Lexi tried to stay away from all her life until the night she met Martinez. El Diablo is crackling with emotion and sizzling with passion. The past and future of Martinez's and Lexi's love story is epically electric. This book will leave you heart broken, happily satisfied but begging for more. M. Robinson puts so much heart and love into her books. I love and adore her writing. She is truly a talented and gifted author who is in a league all her own. I was given an ARC for a honest review.

Author M Robinson is the #QueenOfHearts and #TheQueenOfAngst #HerAlphasMakeYouSwoon This book is exceptionally written with a plot that will rip your heart apart and put it back together again. I anxiously await each of her new releases since they draw me in and keep me immersed in her amazing books. I cried, screamed, held my breath and fell in love between the pages. El Diablo is one of my top reads of 2016. You won't be able to put it down once you start reading!

Wow… still not sure how to sum up El Diablo… Alejandro truly is the devil, but he wasn’t always that way. Lexi is a young woman who does her best to keep her distance from men….but there is something about Alejandro that is different. El Diablo starts about a few decades ago during his youth before she was born and you understand that he was born to be the devil. But as a boy, he had an amazing heart for his mother and sister, and even her best friend Sophia. He became a man too early protecting those he loved. You see him grow up the son of THE crime boss. There is so much angst (of course M. Robinson is the Queen of Angst) in this book…. You like him, you hate him, you love him, you HATE HIM and you will love him…. When he first meets Lexi in a chance meeting there is a pull, she is drawn to him in ways she doesn’t understand, she avoids men… but he is different. So many things come full circle in this book and you will get to see the Good ‘Ole Boys too. This book is so intense and will have you on edge, but it is so amazing and M. Robinson did it again with an amazingly angst ridden book!

Wow! I don't know how M. Robinson did it but she made me fall in love with the Devil himself. This books spans several decades and we get to learn more and more about the circumstances that made Alejandro and Lexie into what they are today. M. has done it again pulling on my heart strings from chapter 1. Seriously I had a knot in my throat through most of the book that was trying to escape into tears. I kept thinking I know where this is going, but I was wrong. So many hidden truths and lies! Basically you just need to sit back and enjoy the ride, warning your emotions will be thrown around alot! This is s standalone, but it is connected to her Good 'ole Boys series, which totally rocks.

Alejandro Martinez, aka El Diablo, had me love him, hate him, love him, hate him and well, I ended up on the love end when all was said and done. What an emotional roller coaster. We met Martinez in Crave Me where you think you know this man and his warped, evil ways but boy, we didn’t know anything. M Robinson is a master as delivering the angst and drama with so many unexpected twists along the way. Just when I thought I had Martinez figured out, she would drop the bomb and my opinion would shift. At the same time, we meet Lexi. My heart bled for Lexi several times on her journey. She faces so many difficult situations that could have truly traumatized her but she continually impressed me with her strength to pull herself up and push on, fighting for her dreams and a life she knew she deserved. Along the way she meets Martinez and loses her heart all together but can you really love the Devil. Does the devil deserve a happily ever after? Grab the tissue and settle in for a crazy, sexy, gut-wrenching roller coaster ride of love and redemption.
