This book is moving alil slow for me and at times I can't bring myself to pick it up. Too much talk about her job. I forgot what I was readin at one point.

OMGoodness. It so got good. Diego He is someone I would run as fast as I could to get away from; after the first time I hooked up with him. Bc he would scare the shit out of me. Not in a bad way, but in the away he did with Marcella. He would have been done with me bc me, submittin is something that just ain't happenin. I like Marce
What can I say? This book was totally awesome! Sienna Mynx is in an elite group of IR writers, of that, I am totally convinced. This book had great characters, great sex, conflict, and suspense, 2nd to none... I would have to say that this has been the best Interracial Romance that I have ever read, ever. It was so good that while in the middle of reading this book, that I went ahead and purchased the sequel. It's just that good!
Possible spoiler alert! Unless you've read the 1st book and if you haven't it is a MUST!

OMG!!! I LOVE LOVE this book! This is part 2 of the 'MI Carina/Carino series'....And I was biting my nails waiting for it!
Yippie it has arrived and did NOT disappoint. Matter of fact it was better then the 1st one! At least in my opinion. The first one was good but this one was excellent!!

Part two is at a faster past with Diego refusing to let Marchella go, hunting her down finding her in Paris ( via Susan a

What a deliciously dysfunctional romance. Ladies and gentlemen, this is not your usual love story, but I still liked it. In fact, it seemed very realistic because the characters didn’t act like the usual romance characters—they acted like real people. They did stupid things. They were mean. They argued. They behaved irrationally. And it was okay because it seemed so real.

Diego is very alpha, rich, secretive, and tortured. For her part, Marcella loves him, but for the life of me I can’t figure o
Marcella & Diego walk into love unexpected. Neither wants love or commitment, just a fling. They are thrown into a love affair that's so addictive they can't walk away always coming back to one another. But Diego is dark and Marcella is scarred. Marcella tries to get Diego to open his heart to her but it comes too late and she must walk away. She leaves taking a piece of Diego with her, hoping to make a fresh start. Both are haunted living on memories of one another. Will they get their HEA? ...more
You will find mixed reviews for these books. Both part 1 and 2 were intense (could not put it down!, fast paced, and sexy! If you are looking for a sweetheart type of romance this not for you. Ms. Mynx has really given each character such depth, I found myself wondering about if Marcella's best friend and Diego's lawyer would end with a story of their own ( I hope so). Not any errors, thought out plot, just beautifully written. These where my first novels by Ms. Mynx. And she DID NOT DISAPPOINT! ...more
I have became a new fan of Sienna Mynx. This book was impossible for me to put it down. It delt with un-adulterated emotions of the two main characters. Their love story is not pretty, and at times it's what I would consider abuse. In this story we witness how painful the road to a happy ever after can be. They are not a match made in heaven, they do not bring the best out in each other yet there is this something that keeps them together. This book is not for the faint of heart but will definat ...more

I like this book a lot. It is not your typical love story. The hero is Diego and he is a complicated man. The heroine is Marcella and at first I thought she was just too weak, but the more I read, I realized that she is just like a lot of women. I think she is one of the most realistic characters that I've read about in a long time. She is a strong woman in her own right, but this particular man brings out weakness in her. She likes being submissive to him, and it changes her.

Marcella and Diego

Marcella Garcia and Diego Andes are like oil and water. She’s a professional employed at a Washington State art gallery. She is efficient on her job at acquisitioning rare works of art.

Marcella bumps into handsome, charismatic Diego Andes by chance after meeting with his stepfather, concerning ancient Egyptian funerary. Diego, a savvy businessman, with previous ties with the South American underworld, had taken possession of his stepfather’s businesses in Washington.

This is the most unlikely co
I love a spicy book that has some substance to it... I bought this book while in the middle of reading the prequel to this one, & I am so glad that I did! This book had just about everything: A Smokin' Hot Latin Lover, Smokin' Hot Sex, and Drama, Drama, Drama! Sienna Mynx has proven herself to be a writer that delivers. You will not be disappointed.!
I like Sienna Mynx and although I enjoyed the storyline it took a lot for me to really engage with the story itself. I didn't connect with the dialogue, it didn't flow for me. There was something about the style of writing I did not really enjoy.

Anyway critiquing the story itself I loved it my my Diego bueno bueno. Although if I had a man that treated me like that id be long gone. How can I describe him I have no words, all I can say is that one incident in his childhood moulded his upbringing

My interest in multiracial/multicultural romances has piqued. Ms. Mynx is one of the authors in this genre who has come highly recommended by some of my FB friends.

I enjoyed this book. Diego Andes was off the charts hawt like fire. 100% alpha male. He is definitely a mystery, bringing hot Latin sexy back. His back story was heartbreaking and it helped me to understand him more.

Honestly, I didn't really like or dislike Marcella. She was basically a strong heroine. . .except when it came to Diego,

good: this book is H.O.T and full of drama, the lives of the two characters draw you in, and have you hooked on wanting to know more about the mysterious Diego. This man is unbelievably sexy, sexy with a lot of hurt and baggage from his past he tries so hard to deal with his issues but he is a truly broken man trying to heal deep wounds.He has fallen for this women Marcella, he wants to show her his heart, but he desperately needs time, show him that he can trust her with his heart. i found Dieg ...more
If you have seen the movie 9 1/2 weeks then you have read this book. The writing is junior high level.
Monica **can't read fast enough**
Mi Carino is an interracial romance that is set in Seattle and revolves around the characters of Marcella and Diego. Marcella is a young up and coming art director who, after a bad relationship with a man who turned out to be married, decides to focus on her career until she crosses paths with Diego. Diego is a Colombian business man with a checkered and traumatic past, who had no plans to find a woman that would stay in his thoughts after only one short meeting, however fate had other plans. Di ...more
I truly enjoyed this book. Although I hated Diego at first, for being to controlling and overbearing. He grew on me and my heart really went out to him. Marcella was his match in wills and stubbornness. They had so much to overcome and his past was so abusively dark, its a wonder that he could feel at all. I have read about some despicable mothers in the past, however right now I think Marie holds the crown for most despicable. She got exactly what she deserved. You definitely had to respect Die ...more
I had to take some time to think after finishing this book because it is certainly unlike anything I have personally read. It was impossible for me to put it down…It’s like I was caught in a whirlwind sometimes it was dark, unpleasant, sometimes it made me mad, yet I HAD TO KNOW more!!
It starts out as a typical boy meets girl story and then things move so fast both Marcella and Diego end up in a “relationship” that I could describe as obsessive, unhealthy and just plain crazy. Sometimes things

As usual, Mynx is solid. The issue I had with this one is that I basically didnt like or understand the characters in terms of their actions. Neither of them. She gave too much early on and then when she finally should have forgiven, she didnt. He was disrespectful and paranoid to the point where things never really should have even gotten off the ground with them. Just...two unlikeable people itbwas hard to respect or root for. Personal taste.

And its a to be continued book, if not a straight up
Marcia Walkerdine
I have now read the Mi Carino Series – I won’t give away the story. I know Kerry Fonville you did not like Diego much. I actually liked him and I was rooting for him the whole time. I am always for the couple no matter what and I am usually on the woman’s side but I found in this story I was for Diego all the way!! He needed Marcella to teach him how to love because he did not really know how to because of his past! He wanted her to teach him because he did not know how to love her the way she w ...more

I couldn't put this book down. The author does a good job of keeping the reader on edge- hungry to find out what happens next. Diego was one sexy, frustrating man. His tortured past completely screwed him up, but Marcella was there to pick up the pieces. She is a very strong heroine that loses herself completely in her man without losing site of what's important to her and her happiness. This couple has many ups and downs which take you on an emotional roller coaster that will keep you up readi
I have read both this book and the following book in the series. They were absolutely awesome. Just the way I like my books. Dark, alluring, erotic, sexy tortured hero, multicultural, clever, intelligent, heroine who is not a whimper and does use her brain, other sexy and interesting characters.

I am not going to give a full review, but it was a riveting read. In fact I could not put either of the two books down and read each in one sitting and went to bed at 3.30 am and 5.00 am respectively.

It was okay. 2.50 rating. I skimmed through a few pages. Still wanna read book two though.
The continuation of Diego and the responses he has to the continued separation from his lover, a woman who wants to be in a relationship with him but worries that his overwhelming need to be in charge will swamp her and take over her life. She is a gifted artisan and now the story is based in Paris and Italy. There were times I wanted to smack the heroine for her continued emotional weakness where this man was concerned and then the reader sees him rising the the challenge to be a better man. Ye ...more
I really really liked this book. It had me gripped from page 1. I loved Diego, he was a complex character and even though he was controlling he came across as someone with values which he invented for himself. Marcella was okay for me, I just wish she had more patience and staying power, this running away when things don't move your way is crap!!!!!.I am hoping that in book 2 Marcella turns out to be the woman I think she is and fights for her man.I cannot wait to continue with this saga, if boo ...more
OMG OMG OMG! obsessed!! Beyond phenomenal! beautifully written.
Diego is a complete asshole I don't even really care about his sob story of a life it's sad that Marcella put up with his ass I bet you that sienna couldn't even justify writing his character the way she did had he not been rich. I was also bothered by the Spanish sweet nothing's guess that's why I never really had a thing for Spanish guys.

I still gave this 3 stars tho for the hot steamy sex kinda reminded me of 50 shades only more believable in that Marcella is not a Virgin and less in that sh

The Book was soo intense and soo good!
A very emotional book that can be emotionally exhausting. There is a sense that the heroine is on a roller coaster ride with her life, loving and then doubting, worrying and then pulling away from her lover, a man who is mercurial in his responses to her and who has carefully guarded secrets that form a large part of his life. There really isn't a happy ending to this book, but it does have a cliff hanger aspect that picks up in book two. Certainly a compelling read, to say the least.
I initially liked the story based on volume 1. However once the drama ensued, I lost interest. It became frustrating and I wanted to scream what now. I started disliking everyone but the hero.

As for the hero, I liked that he was real. The author didn't paint him with the stereotypical brush of most romance stories. If I could rate him, he would be 5 stars. I like an alpha man.
