Title: Diamonds in the Dust (Diamonds are Forever Trilogy #1) Author: Charmaine Pauls Genre: Dark Romance Release Date:19 May 2020
Men like us, we see things. We do things, things that make us unfeeling.
That’s the price of power and money, of living la belle vie and running the French mafia. Then she came along like a pretty wildflower pushing through the cracks on a dirty pavement—fragile yet resilient, a breath of beauty among the filth. She was supposed to be just another job, a nameless person I was to pluck from her life and hand to my brother, nothing but a pawn in the gamble of our diamond business.
There’s a psychological label for men like us. We lack empathy and guilt. We do things to have what we want, things that make flowers wilt.
(Diamonds in the Dust is Book 1 of the Diamonds are Forever Trilogy. Book 2, Diamonds in the Rough, will be released in July 2020, and Book 3, Diamonds are Forever, in September 2020.)
I thought Amy Summers from Lauren Blakely’s Asking for a Friend was my ultimate book girl crush, but now I need to start a collection of Amys because Amy Clarke is as delightfully precious as my other Amy.
Life is desperate when the highlight of your week is Monday morning–that’s my opinion anyway. But for Amy Clarke, she lives for those days when her nerdy train obsession boards the train to London. If only this cute guy she adores, like-a-creeper, noticed her, the world would be perfect. She’s barely said a word to him, yet she knows she’s in love.
