“I’m fine,” she stubbornly replied. Shaking her legs and arms out. Getting back into position, looking at me through the mirror.
I cocked my head to the side, arching an eyebrow. She narrowed her eyes at me, but begrudgingly listened. I pressed play, allowing the melody to once again take over. She placed her leg on the lowest barre, making her ass stick out in my direction.
She closed her eyes, needing to get lost in the music, wanting to push away all the negative thoughts, already feeling discouraged. I stood, taking off my suit jacket. Rolling up the sleeves of my collared shirt as I stepped onto the hardwood floor. I slowly came up behind her, catching her off guard.
She froze, turning around, opening her eyes. Peering up at me through her lashes. “What are you doing?”
I leaned forward against her ear, grinning. “I’m helping you stretch.” Getting down on my knees in front of her.
Her eyes dilated. The feeling of disappointment replaced with nothing but lust. She placed her arms out to the side, resting up against the barre, supporting her weight. I grabbed her ankle, lifting it up in the air, rubbing along her leg as it was fully stretched, before setting it on the lowest barre. Running my other hand up her side, easing her over toward the extended leg. She understood what I was doing, reaching for her ankle, stretching. Standing back up, bringing her arms above her head, I caressed along her leg again, casually turning her torso so her leg was still placed on the barre behind her.
Her breathing hitched as I touched her all over her lower body. My lips softly kissing the inside of her thigh to where she wanted my mouth the most.
5 stars – get ready to meet the devil
I always find it hard to get down in words my love for a book especially when it has totally knocked me on my arse and this time is no exception. El Diablo is an absolute triumph, M Robinson’s writing was flawless, engaging and the range of emotions i experienced along this bumpy ride ranged from wanting to kill Martinez myself to feeling every ounce of Lexi’s despair, hurt and heartbreak. I moved from hating Alejandro one minute to absolutely loving him the next
Alejandro Martinez is as ruthless as they come. Feared and hated by his enemies, he lives his life in constant danger and surrounded by bodyguards. He is many things; deadly, cold hearted and a merciless killer but he wasn’t always like this. The book follows Alejandro as he grows up as the son of a Columbian crime lord . We see his innocence, his hopes for the future, the love for his mother and sister and how this all disappears little by little as his father prepares him to take over his empire and El Diablo is born.
If Martinez is the devil then Lexi is certainly the angel in this story. A hard start in life, she managed to get through her childhood making her a stronger and more determined person. Despite his attempts to show her differently, Lexi always saw the good in him and what was underneath that cold, detached exterior that he wanted everyone to believe was the real Alejandro Martinez. Time after time, he built her up, made her hope, made her believe, only to cruelly and brutally knock her back down leaving her broken and devastated.
However, despite it all they loved each other. The chemistry was there, constantly simmering away until the moments it erupted full of beautifully raw emotion that took your breath away. I routed for them constantly, willing Lexi to pull Alejandro from the darkness that consumed his daily life and into the light again.
Monica is a fantastic story teller, the story gradually builds until you are hanging on every word and i was left holding my breath on more than one occasion with the expectation of what was to come next. The characters are consuming, coming alive as you turn the pages to the point you feel that you are living and breathing there story along with them.
Alejandro Martinez will weave his spell on you and despite moments of hating him, you will fall for this man hook, line and sinker. What more can i say really, other than buy this book and prepare yourself to meet the devil, you won’t be disappointed
