Envy for the spirits I had yet to take.
Pride for the birthright I'd soon fulfill.

Let’s cut to the chase ok? For me, this is hands down ONE of THE BEST book by M.Robinson..it’s a very very very slow second to her No where to Go series. Having said that, it also ties in with El Diablo.
I had high hopes with El Diablo II and it delivered.
El Diablo II is scary and so bloody good. The teasers said “The only thing worse than the Devil is his son” and boy isn’t that the truth. Cruz Martinez is sinfully good…utterly tempting and oh so hypnotising.
I can’t hel ...more

"One look. One moment. One girl. Rendered me completely speechless. She was all it took for me to lose my… Focus. "
'El Diablo 2' is a standalone Mafia Romance by the best selling author M.Robinson. Told in dual Perspectives , this book had all the devilish feels!!
Ladies, this is my warning to you , if you though Monica had wrecked you through Alejandro , then none of you are prepared for his son. Cruz is everything his father is and s ...more
M Robinson knocks it out of the park with El Diablo. I fell completely in love with Cruz Martinez. The son of El Diablo was destined to walk in his father's shoes and the circumstances that lead him to becoming El Diablo are tragic and make for a hell of a romantic suspense.
There wasn't a single moment that I wasn't fully engaged in this book. So completely consumed that there's one thing about this book that didn't even register until the end and whe ...more
In hindsight, if I had toned down my expectations and not kept looking for the greatness the first book of the series was, I would not be disappointed. So my verdict is that if you are going to read this book, don't go in with very high expectati ...more

Cruz Martinez had a legacy to uphold. Protected from the truth since he was young, he wanted to be his own person and embrace what’s in his blood. But his choices would change the course of his life and dragging Sienna Luciano in it whether they prepared to face it or not.
The characters were a lot younger than I expected and I liked that fact. I love his name Cruz and I liked both of them in the ...more
𝑅𝐴𝑇𝐼𝑁𝐺: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4.5
This was long overdue. It's been 4 years since i have been waiting for this one. LITERALLY.
El Diablo was my first ever mafia read, when i started reading El Diablo i had no idea that i'll never be the same. I loved Alejandro Martinez and Lexi with my whole heart, i mean it was one of those books that no matter how many years goes by you'll always remember. Always. So when i heard that another Diablo was emerging from hell, i was over ...more

“Time stood still while the whole world continued on without me. I willingly surrendered, allowing one of the last memories I had.”
Cruz Martinez has been his sister’s protector ever since he could remember. At only twenty one years of age he knew there was more to his father’s demands and commands but he really didn’t truly know until now.
I couldn’t get enough of Cruz he is definitely his fathers son his chemistry with Sienna was undeniable I couldn’t get enough of the banter between them.
This book will own you I can’t wait for more.. Cruz is one of my Top book boyfriends o ...more
I cannot even describe the level of excitement I felt when I found out about El Diablo II. M. Robinson completely blew me away with Alejandro and Lexi’s book, and the mere thought of another story in this world gave me goosebumps. Cruz Martinez, the son of the infamous El Diablo, had a lot to prove that he’s a worthy heir to his father. Has he lived up to the legend? YOU CAN BET HE DID!
Crucifixio Martinez is just as devilish as his father. He's cruel, ru ...more
At 21 years old, Crucifixio “Cruz” Martinez is indoctrinated into El Diablo’s world and all irrevocably shifts. As he vows to protect his family, layers of secrets and years of violence threaten to take hold at any moment and Cruz is put to the test.
“My heart turned cold. My soul black. My future not promised in any path.”
From the beginning, there are different dynamics at play. With Cruz and Sienna, there is a push/ pull between them and both have reasons for their actions. As Cruz is s ...more
The depths of his anger, his thirst for revenge; Cruz at times made his father look innocent but just as his dad the love that Cruz held inside was more than anything I expected! His love for his family was immea ...more
Tropes: Mafia Romance | Romantic Suspense
WOW! M. Robinson knows how to write a gritty romantic suspense that will bleed into your soul! This is one HELL of a book and I enjoyed every SINGLE second of it! If you enjoy dark and ruthless characters and an unforgettable story you need to read this one pronto! This is the second book in the Devil series but can stand alone. I haven’t had a chance to read the first one, but I’ll be rectifying that as soon as possible because I a ...more
I liked both Cruz and Sienna , but I didn't like them together. There was too much Alejando and shit from the last book to be a true standalone. While reading this M Robinson made me feel like Alejandro was 45 instead of almost 70 +
I was not convinced of Cruz's and Sienna's passion for each other. I was ...more
The evil M has struck again...
First she stole my heart with Dylan "Fuckin" McGraw in Undo Me. Then she made me fall for the baddest man there ever will be Alejandro Martinez the one true El Diablo. My heart was then stolen by Creed Jameson, after which his brother Noah was then able to weasel his way in there also. Damien made me confess all my sins. Aiden and Jackson just broke and mended my heart like there was nothing to it. Then Cash "Mother-Fuckin" McGraw came out of left ...more

You need to read this book for the diamond necklace, the picture, the notes, the horseshoe and the stables alone! Cruz is hardcore but his heart will surprise you. Sienna is a spitfire and I absolutely adore her passi ...more
The sins of the father have now become the fate of his children. Cruz & Adriana have lived in a veil of secrets for the past 20 years. Monica has once again blown me away with her amazing story telling and creative imagination. She has pulled us into the world of the Martinez family but it is now his children that take you on this thrill ride. This is filled with secrets, mystery, suspense, sexual chemistry and yes a who ...more
In the name of Cruz's full name...
erm, let's not talk about that. Ever.
Anyways, I really loved Cruz. He's nowhere near the asshole I thought he was going to be (to Sin), being Alejandro's son. There's a lot of Lexi in him. As for Sienna, it took me a while to warm up to her, but I did eventually. It only took more than half of the book for that to happen. I just wished there was more of them as couple tho.
Chapter 39 left me in shock. Chapter 43 gave me a heart attack. And that plot twis ...more
One look was all it took for Cruz to feel a connection with Sienna. One moment was all it took for Cruz to understand his father on a level he never imagined. Sienna was fiery and had no qualms about telling Cruz exactly what was on her mind which made her perfect for him. The connection between Sienna and Cruz and the moment they met w ...more
The angst and the darkness drew me into Cruz and Sienna's story ,tossing my emotions in the air like clay pigeons waiting to be shot, but their passion always brought my feet back to solid ground .
The mafia life is not a life Cruz ever thought he'd become a part of , and it's a life that Sienna wants to get away from, but the sins of the fathers come back on the son , and the daughters . Their future is now set in blood.
I thought no ...more
