MC genred novels are some of my favourite. Add the fact that they are dark, and I find them irresistible. Why? Probably because the possibilities are endless and there's so much that an author can do with that kind of story that my curiosity is more than a little piqued, heck, I have this itching in my fingers that make me HAVE to read the book just to find out what happens to their characters and whether or not they were able to redeem themselves in the end. It's absolutely thrilling and something that makes me want to read more and more from the author. So when Chiah Wilder, a new author for me, wrote a dark MC romance about two broken individuals who suffer from their past, I just had to get my hands on it.

Diablo was nothing like I expected. As part of a series, I was happy to realize that I didn't need to have read the previous instalments to know what's going on. Honestly, it felt like an entire new story that even though it was set in a motorcycle club, it was easy as a standalone. These characters are broken, so damaged from their past that trust doesn't happen easily for them, and yet, when it came to one another, it just seemed as though the big things disappeared. They could laugh, live, forget and even hope for something they never thought they could: to be loved in return. Fallon was a conundrum. As the daughter of a man responsible for an underground illegal fight club, i didn't expect her to be so shy or as brusque as she was when she's laid a compliment. The reason for her limp was a secret for quite some time, but I did enjoy the fact that it was a mystery for as long as it was so that you could get to know the woman before feeling bad that rolls treated her horribly after what happened. When it came to Diablo, he was more of a straightforward man ~ either he liked you or he didn't, but there wasn't really any middle ground.
While the way that the story was developed allowed you to get to know these two characters, my mind did manage to wander every so often on who the other characters were ~ those that are part of the MC, and I did wonder what their story is and whether they found their very own HEA or at least their HEAFN. While I liked he premise of the story and the development of it as well, I had a bit more troubles connecting with these two characters, and that could be because I wasn't aware of what the previous life stories was about, but that doesn't go to say that I didn't like this book, because I did. I'd be curious to read more from Chiah Wilder in the future and see if each book in her series can be read as a standalone.
