Ruin: The El Diablo Chronicles by Autumn Sand

5+++ Stars

…and she did it again!!!

OMG I loved this book and I love love love that this author gave us this part of the story..I have loved every single part of the Twisted Hearts series and this addition was beyond amazing.

Autumn Sand is absolutely in my top 5 list of absolute must read 1 clicks and the twists that happened in this story were perfect and had me on the edge of my seat the entire read. This was a one sitting devour and I’m actually ready I believe to start from the beginning and read all of these over again back to back!

I didn’t realize how much I needed Tallie’s story until I started reading it, and El had me all kinds of messed up, like him? Love him? Hate him? Trust Him?? What a ride that was and Tallie’s history also had me all kinds of a mess. This author has a way of forming her words and transporting me right into the story and wanting so so much more and if I could hope for just one thing I would absolutely love to read at least one more story and that one would be Chicken’s. He totally fascinates me and his would be the topping on the cake.

I guess this could be read as a stand alone, but I would not recommend that, there is too much in the previous books and not to mention they are just brilliant reads.

Highly recommend!!

Loved It!!

Omg I loved this book. While the flashbacks of the trauma for Tillie were tough, you didn’t need to read that part to understand what happens so its easily skipped if you have triggers.
I didn’t even know I needed these characters story until I started reading this. And I loved seeing past characters in this story.
You have to read this to understand all that is happening, I won’t be giving anything away. Must must read.

Ruin: The El Diablo Chronicles By Autumn Sand. Ahhh this author just gets me! I absolutely was entranced by this story, the characters are complex, relatable and simply put just amazing. From page one I knew I’d be reading this in one sitting because I wouldn’t be able to put it down and I was right! I felt a huge draw to both Tallie and Raymond they just spoke to me more than some characters do. I’ll definitely be thinking about them for awhile. I highly recommend starting this book when you have time because you will not want to put it down. I’m giving this story a five star review and highly recommend it.

The reasons to LOVE this story! First it’s loaded with characters that we have previously met and adore. Second we finally…finally get to learn what’s up with Tallie. Thirdly we learn more about El Diablo and his BFF Chicken. I enjoyed the dynamics between El Diablo and Chicken…I really thought these are two cold blooded killers. El could be so cold and ruthless to people even Tallie. While I hated El upon the first few meetings between him and Tallie I eventually saw through his words to the man underneath. Plus when she was going to walk out on him…in the kitchen…what he said? ….so uncharacteristic of him. That makes me believe in him.

I absolutely loved Tallie’s “real” name. But her earlier life I could have done without. I really felt for this poor girl and can see why she is the way she is now. Her life just ripped my heart out. In previous books Tallie wasn’t a well liked character because of her actions. I am glad she got her own story and her own ending.

This book is full ON emotional and brutally honest. I ran a gambit of emotions while reading including shock more than once. I can see why the author struggled to get this one out. As previously stated I loved these characters before and now that encompasses Tallie, El and even Chicken. This is a stand alone book and not for the faint of heart. For those that love a walk on the darker side….pick this up. I would recommend reading the Twisted Heart Series as some of the characters overlap. As usual Autumn Sand does not disappoint. She is a one click for me.
BTW—Great Cover!!

Ruin: The El Diablo Chronicles is a fantastic romantic suspense novel by Autumn Sand. It is a spin off from the Twisted Hearts Love Story series but can be read as a stand-alone. I was gutted when that series ended so was overjoyed that Autumn Sand decided to give El Diablo and Tallie their own story.
I loved El Diablo and Tallie’s story. Their characters are amazing. This story contains storylines that may act as triggers for some readers. There is an element of sexual abuse in the story. This book had everything I love in a book. I was gripped tightly right from the very start and wasn’t let go. You will go through every emotion possible when reading it – anger, devastation, heartbreak, this book has it in spades.
Autumn Sand sure knows how to tell a story. I loved that the characters I had loved from the Twisted Hearts books were back. They don’t overshadow El Diablo and Tallie at all but their role in this book is essential.
I have to say that the author throws a few curveballs at you. I had several WTF!!! moments reading this.
I would definitely recommend this book. Also I would recommend that you also read the 4 books in the Twisted Hearts Love Story series as they are so damn good.

By: Autumn Sand
5 out of 5 stars

The story Ruin: The El Diablo Chronicles by Autumn Sand is a romantic suspense book. It is a story that pulled me in from the very beginning and I found myself not wanting to put it down until I had finished the last page. I enjoyed reading about the characters of Tallie and Raymond. Tallie is a woman who keeps herself guarded. She is someone who gets what she wants and makes no apologies for it. She is also haunted by her past. She has now met Raymond. Raymond is part myth, part man. He is a man that could be considered cold and calculating. He keeps himself away from family and friends. He keeps himself protected. The sparks fly when both Raymond and Tallie meet. There is no commitment, no strings attached. Will it stay that way? What does the future hold for Tallie and Raymond? Read this book to find out. I really felt for Tallie as she has been through so much in her life and her past shapes the decisions that she makes. Raymond is a man that could have any woman that he wants. He is finding himself with feelings for Tallie. This book had me turning pages wondering what was going to happen next. It also had me on an emotional rollercoaster. It is a book that will have you glued to the pages all the way through. The story does include a sensitive subject that may cause triggers.

Whoa. Hands down this is a must read. The description and warning is spot on. You can easily skim what might be difficult for you to digest. But this gripped me from beginning to end. Sand is a must read author and this just continues to solidify that opinion. A must read. Run and get it as fast as you can!

Ruin by Autumn Sand is a fantastic novel that is part of the El Diablo Chronicles. Although other characters are mentioned this book can be easily read as a standalone.
This book is everything I wanted and expected it to be and more! It had such a gripping story line and such intensely perfect characters to match. I was drawn into everything about this book immediately and within a few pages knew that I was going to have to read it all in one sitting. The book was so rich in detail and complex I honestly felt like I was there throughout the whole story. It was exciting to read and left me eager to read more.
The only thing I would say is that, while for me the trigger warning wasn’t necessary – I will read pretty much anything – I can complete understand why it would be needed. So while I would highly recommend reading this book as soon as humanly possible be cautious if you think you might be effected. The parts of the book are fairly easy to skim over so it is still 100% worth your time.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I think I’ve read all of this author’s books so I knew what to expect going in. What I didn’t expect was to gleefully clap when I recognized past character’s names & places (you don’t need to have read anything prior, so no worries).

I read this story in one day. It was one of those stories which I thought I knew where it was going and was prepared for being completely unprepared. FANTASTIC story line. Well plotted from beginning to end. There were a few times I had to sit back and think about who was who and why they were the way they were, but it did not take away from the enjoyment.

The author notes a trigger warning, I think it was deserved in this case. While these are not “triggers” for me, they are things I prefer to not read about and was able to skim over the triggers with no problem and was still able to follow along.

I look forward to reading more of this exciting series.

I loved this book. I couldn’t put it down until the last page. This author has continued to write stories that are hot, steamy and who doesn’t love a bad boy as well as just a plain awesome book. Her character development is awesome as they make me feel as if I am right there in the room with them. Who knew that walking into Pulse could change lives forever? A story of breaking down walls and seeing people for who they really are. A must read, hands down, you won’t regret it.
