Review: Sinner, Savior (Brooklyn Sinners #2) by Avril Ashton

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.

Reader Advisory: Contains brief scenes of gang-related violence.

Brooklyn’s crime gang saga continued in Avril Ashton’s Sinner, Savior as Pablo was now the leader of the infamous Los Pescadores; embroiled in gang war and falling for the enemy.

Dev was one of the right hand men of a rival gang of Los P’s, but all was not what it seemed. Ms. Ashton’s portrayal of Dev and Pablo was superb. Pablo, distraught over losing the man he had secretly pined for (from book one) had a difficult time giving his heart to Dev, never truly permitting the man in.

Pablo was stoic in resolve. A man who knew his limitations; striving to embrace them and the man he loved- a love offered freely by Dev. Dev was a beautiful person placed in a situation not completely of his control , balancing duty and love while hoping both facets melded into his happily ever after.

Ms. Ashton did not glamorize crime nor sensationalize it. She delivered nuances and snippets of evil and gave due justice to the adage people can change for the better.

Sinner, Savior added depth to the Brooklyn Sinners series as new relationships were formed and old friendships renewed. A must read.

    I’m glad to see that Pablo gets his own story. I loved the first book and look forward to this one.

    Thanks for sharing!
