A Diamond Magnate Novel
Series: Diamonds are Forever Trilogy #2
Author: Charmaine Pauls
Genre: Dark 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. Book 1, Diamonds in the Dust, must be read to follow the story. Book 3, Diamonds are Forever, which concludes the story, will be released on 15 September 2020.)
Charmaine continues to elevate this series with this book. I’ve never went from loving a character to loathing one as much as I did Maxime. That right there is true writing craft! I was absolutely appalled by his actions yet still want his character redeemed.
This story picks up where Diamonds in the Dust left off. This story was completely mesmerizing and I read it within 4 hours. I literally couldn’t put it down!
Great storyline. Excellent character development. Huge revelations and twists. Cliffhanger.
This book is was fantastic and I highly recommend it!!
