A DARK MAFIA ROMANCE
Girls like me, we know how to survive.
We each have our own little ways, but we acquire those skills at the same tender age.
If you ask me how many times a person can die, I’ll tell you many times. As many times as a man stabs you in the stomach with betrayal and wrings out your heart with lies.
Girls like me, we live. We don’t get a choice. We step over the cliff and fall.
Eat, sleep, die, and repeat.
(Diamonds in the Rough is Book 2 of the Diamonds are Forever Trilogy and ends on a cliffhanger. Diamonds in the Dust (Book 1) must be read to follow the story. Diamonds are Forever (Book 3) concludes the story and will be released on 15 September 2020.)
Diamonds in the Rough by Charmaine Pauls
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
And yep the Italian deal was exactly what I thought it was excuse me while I take a moment to internally dissect Maxime inch by delicious inch what a complete an utter toss-bag. Poor poor Zoe she’s certainly been put through the emotional ringer by him. His actions here actually defy all sense of compassion and empathy. It’s like he can’t understand why she would even be upset and even seems to think she’ll get over it with time: no chance their sunshine, talk about needing a big reality check. Maxime’s constant manipulations and blase attitude towards a woman that has shown him nothing but love and regard well he deserves to lose her. I hope he chokes on his regret and I for one will be watching gleefully with pure delight at all the grovelling he will have to perform to maybe win Zoe’s affections back. That aside this kept my attention throughout and I was definitely invested in the unfolding drama. This was also excellently written full of passion and heat and even when I was hating Maxime which was a lot of the time let me tell you. I was also hoping he’d have an epiphany and realise just what he held in the palm of his hand: for an intelligent bloke he wasn’t half dense at times sigh. Zoe well I just wanted her to make a stand so I was cheering her on from the sidelines when she finally decided enough was enough. This ended leaving me wanting more and I am going to be on absolute pins waiting for the final piece of this story.
I voluntarily reviewed a copy of Diamonds in the rough (Diamonds are forever trilogy #2).
