El narco. A monster. Un diablo. Jorge Hernandez had been called many things, and it always made him laugh. If there was one word that could be used to describe him, it would be untouchable. Corrupt politicians combined with his charming disposition had contributed to Jorge’s success, but it was often the underlying threats behind his handsome smile that sealed the deal. He was unstoppable.
In Paige Noël, he had met his match. She was a woman as dangerous and sadistic as she was soft and gentle. The last thing he expected was to propose after an explosive first meeting, but the intense fire between them was as addictive as the thrill of violence and power.
When some of his personal enemies turn up dead, Jorge shuffles his daughter into a Canadian school, deciding that things are getting a little too hot in Mexico; but does life ever slow down in this dark underground world?
The devil is smooth like honey, but is heaven ever far away?

This book was incredible! I love a book that moves quickly and this one never stopped. The lead character, Jorge Hernandez was exciting, dangerous and sexy and I loved the fact that his wife Paige was a strong woman who kind of balanced him out. I was actually surprised by what an easy read it was because the story pulled you and ran very smoothly so it was easy to get caught up in it and not want to put the book down. If you like books with a lot of action and aren't iffy on violence, this one is for you!
The Devil is Smooth Like Honey review She's back and she's struck literary gold again with sharply drawn characters and a plot that delivers a hammer punch to the gut. MIMA, author of seven previous novels, rachets up the suspense even more in The Devil is Smooth Like Honey - pairing a ruthless, badass assassin for hire with a Mexican drug lord who is cruel and menacing and every bit her match. As the body count mounts, so does the sexual heat. This book is so incendiary it should carry an 18 A rating. Paige Noel and Jorge Hernandez are the new, twisted couple of the literary world and I hope MIMA brings them back in a future novel. I enjoyed every page of this book. There were so many shocking surprises between the covers, but there's more going on than sex parties and smart banter and lethal gunplay. MIMA takes several sharp jabs at the pharmaceutical industry, which has done more than its part keeping the illicit drug trade alive and very, very profitable for people such as Jorge. She also lifts the lid on corruption at the highest levels of government and on racism and how deeply it is ingrained in Canadian society. The book will be a revelation to many readers who thought Canadians were the Boy Scouts of the world. Jorge and Paige are well suited for a corrupt world and the their banter wouldn't be out of place in a Bogart, Bacall film - except this sick couple is bad to the bone. Imagine a depraved version of the Thin Man movies, or Moonlighting or even the Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie hookup flick Mr and Mrs Smith. I really enjoyed Book No. 8, one of those rare sequels that is the perfect companion piece to the original - Always be a Wolf. If you loved Always be a Wolf, you will be happy to know all three main characters have returned - Chase, Diego, and Diego's sexy sister Jolene. As if their world hadn't been shaken up already, having launched a popular sex party business in Toronto against all odds. Now they have to contend with a rival and his assassin-fiancée who won't be content to take a back seat to anyone. Guns and sex and drugs. And who wants to bet against El Diablo?
