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
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.
One of the things I loved about this book was Pablo''s growth. From being in love with a ghost, scheduling love with an anonymous Levi, Off the charts hatred for his father (well deserved) ..to being the freaking hurricane that went to his man...his love when shit hit the fan. That man is a force of nature!!
The thing I love best about the story was Shane's determination to make Pablo his. He knew from jump that they were destined to be and he refused to let Pablo walk away from it. I cheered for him, cried with him wanted to punch Pablo sometimes ..It all started with a fight and he continued that fight for his man the whole time...it was beautiful .
The narrator did a fantastic job with all the characters but Pablo made me swoon every time.
The character i would take out surprisingly is Shane....surprising cause I''m a little in love with Pablo. But He is definitely one of the strongest characters Ive seen in a while. Nothing came easy for him, just when things started looking up Pablo turned on him, then the boss, then the Ex. But damn if that boy doesn't know how to fight for what he wants.
Yea...I admit JP is my favorite book boyfriend.
Yes and I have, multiple times. The reason to listen to it over and over is easy Pablo, one of my favorite characters in any book that i have read or listened to. I dont know why i relate to himself. Im female, white, live in burbs now but hes real, and hes a beautiful character.
Its easy he makes the characters come to life. Unlike Gabe (whose character and character voice i couldnt stand) every character in this book is awesome. Renard should be doing more books.
This is the book to get, full price, credit, sale doesn't matter get this book.
OK, I'm completely hooked on this series. The narrator is doing a great job, with the exception of Syren's voice. I really hate it, which is going to be an issue in Book 3. Other than that, he gives wonderful depth and emotion to the other voices and does a fantastic Brooklyn accent. I should know as I grew up in Brooklyn. This 2nd books was great. It is much better, hotter, darker and wittier (is that a word?) than the first. I think what I like most about this author is he/she (no clue) unapologetically writes the alpha male characters with emotions while retaining their "manliness" These guys love and love hard. In the previous book, Angelo loved Gabe like no other, but there were lines he would not cross. Juan Pablo Castillo does not have those lines, as Dev finds out. There is nothing he would not do for Dev and there is a darkness within Pablo that only Dev can save him from. I also encourage readers to read the 2.5 free read on the author's website. It is really great and at 95 pages, a great novella to supplement this story. Onto book 3.
