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.)

Diamonds in the Rough by Charmaine Pauls
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

How does this keep happening? Lol Once again I am in shock!! So listen, this trilogy is so unpredictable I don’t even know if you guys should be reading reviews. Seriously. Someone is going to slip up and tell you something that will ruin the stoooooooop it moment in these installments that quite honestly, I loathe but love at the same time. I mean … who reads a Charmaine book and expects rainbows and unicorns? amirite? This one though … it’s extra people! You’ve been warned 🙂

Even tho I am not going to give away anything that happens in this story, I want to take a few minutes of your time and talk about Charmaine’s skill. This woman is a powerhouse. When I reviewed the first book in this trilogy I was so incredibly stunned at her wizardry that I stated “I don’t think she can out-do what she’s written here as the beginning of this journey. Well, clearly, her skill has no bounds. She has a way of pulling the reader into the darkest shadows in a story and make them adore the darkness. Her stories are exciting and passionate and never predictable. READ HER WORK!

I have zero clue the direction this story is taking any more LOL but I am looking forward to it. She twisted my mind seven ways to Sunday with the ending here so I am like *blank stare* right now. I have no doubt she will blow me away!
