Book two in the Brooklyn Sinners series.
Gun runner Pablo Castillo has cemented his reputation in the gun trade as callous and cold-hearted. Personal feelings no longer matter, not with everyone out to make him a sacrifice on their way to the top. He remains untouchable, until a meeting with a rival gang leader and a new deal brings him face-to-face with temptation.
Dev is the right hand to a sadistic bastard out for blood and glory. He hides his true feelings of distaste for his boss, not the least of his many secrets. He could’ve sworn those secrets were safe, but after meeting Pablo he’s not so sure. The two men come together in a heated affair neither can deny, battling themselves, each other and a deadly enemy bent on spilling blood. Pablo and Dev will have to stick together or walk away from a love neither man expected to find. The choice should be simple. It never is.

I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
FYI: This is m/m romance.. and graphic violence... It's a gang member/cop romance... so be warned!
This is Pablo and Dev (Shane) story...
Pablo was Angel (from Love the Sinner) right hand man... and is the main character this time.. Pablo is totally a laid back character, but extremely dangerous when he has to be, which you don't get that vibe from him in the first book. This book really dips into his background... and I love the scene when get finally gets revenge for his mother... Nice!
Not my favorite of the four books... but definitely a keeper!
Renard Pasquale did an awesome job...
Great sale or credit...
Again, I am enjoying the narration and the story. This one picks up a little after Book 1.
Juan Pablo Castillo was left running Los Pescadores "Los P" after his boss and best friend Angelo Pagan chose to go legit and be with his love Detective Gabriel Ashby in Book 1, Love the Sinner.
While Juan was hurt as he was also in love with Angelo, he was dealing with the
fall out of being boss, assassination attempts. So he decided it was time to pay his enemies back, and he would start with Devon McGhee, his enemies #2. But as he toyed with Devon, he couldn't escape the feelings Devon awoke in him. What is it about Devon that captivated him? Is this what Angelo felt when he was around Gab? Pablo is a crime lord and many people depend on him for their living and he isn't willing to walk away. He has to decide if this side action with Devon is worth the trouble it's sure to bring his way.
This story was different enough from book 1 to be just as enjoyable. I loved the chemistry between Pablo & Devon. I loved the fact that Devon wore his feelings on his sleeve. He was never afraid to voice what he wanted. The writing kept me interested and flowed well. The sex scenes were plenty and were hawt. These two guys definitely had that combustible energy and I was feeling it! The narrator brought each character to life. i don't know what is going to happen to Mateo and the rest of Los P, but I want them to find love too. I will continue to listen to this series.
Great narrator and I loved these two characters better than Gabe and Angel, I know most people who love this series, love Gabe and Angel, but I am a fan of Shane and Pablo
Pablo talking to Angel at his home in North Carolina and when he shows up at Shane's apartment in Atlanta.
?? It is a tie between Pablo and Shane.
The title, Sinner's Savior
This is a book best listened to/read in order. We met Pablo in book one, he's Angelo's friend from the gang, Los Ps. He was also in love with Angelo and hiding it for all the reasons nobody knew Angelo was gay. Now Pablo's in charge and he's trying to do what's right for him and the gang.
Along the way he meets Dev, Dev is part of a rival's gun runners group but he's way more than that. Something about Dev calls to Pablo and though it makes no sense - in SO many ways - the two get involved.
When Pablo finds out some of Dev's secrets it's almost complete devastation. But Pablo finds he can't hurt Dev, even if he should.
Like Book one, this is a tale of two souls from opposite sides of the law, forced together and forced into realizing that love is more than their supposed affiliations. It's full of angst and anger and SUPER hot smexy times!
The same narrator I adored from book one also narrates here, Renard Pasquale. He gives Pablo a tremendously sexy accent, manages to give Dev a solid manly growl and really knows how to deliver when it comes to both emotion and pacing.
If you enjoyed book one you'll really want to continue on with the series and I recommend the audio books as the best possible way to enjoy them.
5 of 5 stars
I enjoyed reading Pablo and Shane's story. I Loved hearing their story! Renard Pasquale does a fantastic job with the narrative. looking forward to hearing Syren and Kate's story next. one of the best series!
I love to read and listen to erotica all types and paranormal vamps and shifters
This was a good book this is the second book in the Brooklyn Sinners series. Pablo Castillo took over has the leader of Los P when Angelo left the gang as the gang leader he continues to sell guns. When Pablo meets with a rival gang leader and a new deal brings him face-to-face with a beautiful man named Dev is the right hand to a sadistic bastard out for blood and glory. He hides his true feelings of distaste for his boss, not the least of his many secrets. He could’ve sworn those secrets were safe, but after meeting Pablo he’s not so sure. Pablo unlike Angelo is bi sexual and a few of the men in Los P know it he can't stop thinking about Dev and Dev can't stop thinking about him. This was a really good book as the heat between these two heats up the danger also heats up. First Pablo finds out who the man is that the gang leader is buying the guns for who turns out to be the man who killed Pablo's mother his father who just blow up the cop that is on the gangs payroll. After dealing with him Pablo has to deal with the fact that Dev was almost killed by his boss because he thought that he was working with Pablo and because they were having sex. This was a really good book and series the sex scenes where hot and heavy. I liked the fact that Dev who is really Shane working undercover because he is a DEA agent. Pablo who although he is in love with Shane knows that he needs to let him go Pablo was hurt when Angelo left because he was in love with him and thought that he would reject him hasn't gotten over it. Dev was not giving up on him until a last he lives without Pablo stopping him. This book was well written or read as I listened to it on audio the narration was really good. I am looking forward to reading the next book in this series. If you like reading about male on male criminal's than I recommend that you read this series.
I absolutely loved the first book so I couldn't wait to listen to the second book. This time around we get to know Pablo's story he taken over the roll as boss now that Angel has left gun trade. Loved Pablo and Dev/ Shane the chemistry between them was explosive the men are so damn tough, 2 Alpha male with , gangstas with guns, killing for love . This is book two in this series I can only describe Sinner, Savior as hot & dangerous This was really a good book i would definitely recommend. Renard Pasquale did a great job for bring the characters to life but narrator's voice for Syren was not to my liking but still love the book.
Pablo and Dev (Shane) should be on opposite sides of the table until they explore their attraction. Pablo is so Alpha male and rough around the edges and tries to be with Shane, but that Shane is Alpha too and sexier than Pablo is ready for. They meet, they fight, they get sexed up. But what will it take to get them together.
I happened upon this series from a recommendation online. Went ahead and grabbed the audibles and have loved both books. Seriously great gritty books. And damn can thus woman write a HOT sex scene!!!
After the abysmal character of Gabe in book 1, I was somewhat hesitant to get the rest of the series, but Sinner. Savior redeemed the series for me. Pablo & Shane are a great pairing. And Renard Pasquale does an amazing job of bringing the characters to life.
