Book Review: El Diablo (The Devil #1) by M. Robinson


Purchase This: AMAZON UK l AMAZON US

My Rating: 5 stars out of 5

Genre: Romantic Suspense

I’m not going to lie, when I read a new author I am always a little wary. So I wasn’t expecting this to blow my mind, which it did. It was SO good! I kept hearing about this book, and it was mentioned that the hero was older than the heroine (I have a thing for older men) and then the fact that M. Robinson is attending a book signing I am going to next year, so I kind of wanted to read her before I met her.

Meet Alejandro everyone. He is the devil. He’s ruthless, a criminal and the master of his universe. Everyone fears him and respects him. There is nothing warm about him, he is a cold hearted bastard. Not gonna lie, he scared the shit out of me. He loves being in control and being master of everything. It’s the life he was born into and the life which was destined from him. It is the only way he wants to live. A cold and lonely existence.

I could be her saviour, or her possible demise. All little girls wanted a prince charming A knight in shining fucking armor.
Little did she know, I was the villain in this story.

I really liked the writing the style. Words that grip you, make you cry and just make you FEEL show that they are written by an incredibly talented author. I cried so much. Many parts were emotional as hell. I was pulled in to the story and I couldn’t help but suffer right alongside the characters. Yes, it made me sad, but it also was entertaining as hell. Therefore, good writing! The story was laid out in three parts which is part of what made it better. The different parts of Alejandro’s life, his own biography if I can call it that. I liked it better this way than I would have if it was written any other way. This worked out perfectly, because I’m sure anyone who reads this is going to be obsessed with Alejandro so we’d want as much information as we can get about him.

Lexi was the other main character who I grew attached with. She was strong and her sass was enough of a match to Alejandro. Not being scared of his antics, proving time and time again that he could never get to her like he did with other people. Because she saw beneath his mask. I loved her character, how she never gave up and stood tall.

There were parts of the story I got so angry with. The decisions these characters made sometimes, like NO don’t do that! But of course sometimes characters make stupid decisions but it just makes the story better. I was mad at all the time lost, may be some things could The first two parts of the story were five stars for me. The third however, I would give a 4 star to. I think some things could have been done without. Regardless, I enjoyed everything immensely.

This story is special to me. It is rare nowadays that a story makes me FEEL and makes me cry. A story I can hold close to my heart. I hate being overwhelmed by books because emotions and me are a big no. However, I can’t help but love it at the same time. Because that’s what good books do. M. Robinson is an incredible writer and I will definitely be reading more from her in the future.
