It’s cold outside, but the drama is hot!
The Diamond sisters jet to the mountains for spring break, and Savannah’s flirt-mance with an international pop star heats up as her pursuit of stardom succeeds. But is this romance meant to be, or has the right guy been in front of her all along? Meanwhile, Courtney takes the next step with her secret boyfriend—and future stepbrother—and as their parents’ wedding approaches, the pressure’s on to reveal their relationship.
Peyton’s figuring out a plan for her future, but she still feels guilty about getting her former bodyguard fired and wonders if she can get over him in the arms of someone else. But the biggest bombshell will change everything once again, because Madison’s ready to tell the huge secret she’s uncovered. And with the boy who betrayed her but who could be the love of her life fighting for his own life, she might need the Diamond sisters more than ever.
First of all I just want to thank Michelle for choosing me to be one of TWENTY bloggers to receive a copy of Diamonds are Forever a few weeks early- I literally squealed when I got the news!
For those who don’t know, The Secret Diamond Sisters trilogy is an addictive, can’t-put-down series that follows three sisters who find out that they’re father is a billionaire hotel owner. It’s full of secrets, cute sisterly moments, and LOTS of drama. It’s like watching a reality TV show but 100 times better. The first two books are The Secret Diamond Sisters and Diamonds in the Rough, if you haven’t started the trilogy I highly recommend that you pick up the first book ASAP and come back here when you finish the series (:
NOTE: If you haven’t read the first two books, read at your own risk- spoilers ahead!
Michelle Madow has outdone herself once again, Diamonds are Forever was one of my highly anticipated releases for the fall and it did not disappoint. Diamonds in the Rough left readers in a panic, we discovered that the Diamond sisters had another sister who was killed as an infant, Madison uncovered that her biological father is Adrian Diamond, and then we are left hanging with the horrifying news that Oliver was in a bad car accident. I was dying to know what was going on and it didn’t help that Michelle teased us about a funeral scene via twitter- I was on edge for months!
When I finally got my hands on this beauty, I immediately brought it with me to school as something to pass time when I wasn’t in the mood to do anything else. Unfortunately that day I had a bad headache and a sore throat so I ended up doing nothing so I decided to read, I read and read and could not stop! I started the book around 11 am that morning and (with class and some responsibilities as distractions) finished before 8 pm that night. I was so engrossed with the story, I did not want to put the book down but on those rare occasions that I had to I couldn’t stop thinking about what was happening.
Once again we are introduced to a world of glitz and glam, a world I personally wish I was a part of but this time the sisters are acting a bit more mature, which was refreshing to see. Granted, they still had some spoiled moments but overall I detected some real character development. It frustrated me before whenever the sisters acted bratty, I wanted to shake them and scream “YOU LITERALLY CAME FROM NOTHING AND NOW YOU CAN HAVE EVERYTHING- STOP ACTING LIKE A BABY!” (subtle right?), but I now realize that the shock and transition effected them and now it’s wearing off. I loved seeing the girls start focusing on important things- like school, hobbies, and their careers rather than worry about what “he said, she said” or parties. It made the story so much more realistic and made me SO HAPPY that this book wasn’t going to be a cliche ‘girl gets guy and that’s all that matters’ type of book.
The ending was bittersweet because I loved seeing where all the girls were heading, but I really didn’t want the series to end. In fact-Michelle, if you’re reading this, I think you should totally make a trilogy for EACH sister (including Madison!). Haha, if only…
Thank you again Michelle for sending me an early copy and for creating such a wonderfully addictive series! I cannot wait to see what other masterpieces you create in the future <3
And to YOU, my reader, you absolutely have to pick up this book- you’ll love it!
