My rating: 5 of 5 stars
EL SANTO is book one in The Saint series and is a DARK, wickedly baaaad boy, Mafia-type, suspenseful read that will have you begging for more! Damien had me at the prologue, no joke. This tragic tale is everything I’ve come to expect from M. Robinson and more. I literally stayed up ALL. Night. Long. to finish this book. And I cried through probably the entire last half! I thought I was going to hate Damien but NOPE. I couldn’t help but love his twisted, sinister, damnable heart! And if Damien is everything joyless and vile then Amira is everything decent and kind. She’s the light to his dark, Damien’s opposite but his soul mate too. Their love isn’t normal or conventional or for the faint of heart but it is amazingly beautiful in it’s ugliness and it made my heart sigh. I’ll also be the first to admit how much I LOATHE cliffhangers (because I’m so dang impatient!) but in this case, I’m glad Ms. Robinson decided to break this gorgeous story into two books because I didn’t want to say bye to Damien and Amira and I didn’t want their physical relationship to feel rushed. (But I still frantically flipped through the last few pages to make sure I didn’t miss anything!!) I’ll put this on my READ AGAIN E-SHELF and WAIT LONGINGLY FOR BOOK TWO! Told from dual POVs with an “Oh my Gawd” ending. I received, read and voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.
I didn’t know darkness and evil lurked inside me until I had to murder in order to survive. Forced to become my own worst enemy. With so much blood on my hands, I was surprised I could still see my own skin.
I played God while I was rotting in Hell. Thriving on control and power was the only way I knew how to live. There were no other options.
If you weren’t my friend, you were my foe.
If you weren’t with me, you were against me.
Traitors, as I called them. There were no imaginary lines. I’d crossed them all. No boundaries. No second chances. No redemption.
Not for me.
Only for her…
She loved me. Always convinced I was a saint, never believing I was just another sinner.
A fucking monster.
Until it was too late.
Except, I didn’t choose this life.
It. Chose. Me.

man you’d least expect. You see, I never imagined another life until I made one
for myself. By that time, I was too far-gone, engulfed in nothing but pitch
black darkness. Exactly the way it was meant to be.

that, a dream. One that could easily turn into a nightmare.
love yous, every last I fucking hate you, her heart and soul that I’d broken,
shattered and destroyed along the years belonged to me.

me as much as she does, but I want you to.
Don’t say, I didn’t warn you.
