I would like to send a shout out to these awesome reviewers! Thank you from the bottom of my heart. :-)
***Review from Faerotic Prose*** www.FaeroticProse.blogspot.com
This book is definitely intriguing! I love that the main character, Holly is a strong, determined, hard-working woman; but with her own unique quirks. I enjoyed reading how the author portrays her very-human emotions and reactions to each situation. Holly is a woman who seems to "have it all," yet is lonely and desires what most people want - someone to love her for herself, not her wealth or what she can do for him!
Drake is a charmer, and drew my interest from the beginning. He poses as a wealthy man, yet is a professional thief near retirement. He is to steal from Holly, yet finds himself intrigued with her instead. As the story heats up . . . well, you'll just have to read it for yourself to see what happens!
The story was intriguing, fun, kept my interest, and most definitely steamy. There were a few parts of the book where I felt the wording didn't quite flow as smoothly as it could, otherwise it is well-written. The story has a good plot, the theme remains constant throughout and the characters are likeable. Diamonds by author Dawn Chartier is a great book to add to any erotic romance lover's personal collection.
***Review from That’s Erotica!*** www.thatserotica.com
Diamonds is the first book in the Stiletto Millionaire Club series. Holly and Drake are characters who compliment each other, making it easy for the reader to connect with them quickly. I really like that Holly’s character is a millionaire, yet she is very likeable; she is down to earth, and has a huge heart. Used to easily getting any woman’s attention, Drake is disappointed and frustrated that she holds her heart closely protected.
The story is different in that you already know what Drake plans to do, but you are left guessing at how the emotional side of the story will play out. There are some nice, hot scenes, but nothing that takes away from the story. Holly’s Sexsomnia problem makes some scenes rather humorous if you put yourself in her place and Drake certainly doesn’t have an issue with it.
I would recommend this story to anyone who would like a quick and steamy HEA read. Diamonds is a relatively short story, all of 82 pages, so it’s perfect for a day at the beach. Don’t let the short page count keep you from picking up this book; every page is well written and the story wraps up cleanly without feeling rushed. I look forward to reading what Dawn Chartier gives us in the next book of the Stiletto Millionaire Club.
*There is an attempted rape scene that may be difficult for some readers.*
***Review from Smitten With Reading*** www.smittenwithreading.blogspot.com
The hero is a thief. I wasn't sure that Dawn was going to be able to convert me to being happy with a happily ever after with those circumstances, but she did! Because Drake is most definitely a thief. He has been his entire life, from the time he ran away from home and his abusive father. He's uber-charming and very good at what he does, but he wants out. His handler has agreed to let him out if he does this one final job...steal the Heart Diamond from Holly.
Holly had an awful childhood. She has risen above that to become a self-made millionaire, but her childhood and men only after her money and influence have left scars. She doesn't trust often or easily, but Drake has snuck in under her walls and she's well on the way to giving him her heart.
This is an interesting premise and I was completely surprised by how Dawn worked out the story line. It was good and entertaining. It was a short novel, but I felt like there was enough depth to the story so that I completely connected to the characters. I enjoyed the book.
A big THANK YOU to the reviewers! I truly appreciate the time you took out to review, DIAMONDS! Thank you very much!
