In a nutshell, Diamond in the Rough (Book #1) and Black Diamond (Book #2) was a tale of: Romance and Love, Secrets and Lies, Manipulation and Paranoia, Life-Threatening and Mental Illnesses, Illegal Activities and Crime, and quite possibly...Kidnapping and Murder!
I read this impressive series at a slow, attentive pace. I didn't want to miss any important details or clues. I could never be sure if I was 'seeing' the whole picture or if there were missing pieces to the overall puzzle.
This entertaining series was so far from ordinary! I loved the pairing of these two idiosyncratic characters:
• Oliver James Black, the 29-year-old American entrepreneur, was active in environmental causes, engineering, and construction. He had a brilliant mind that worked overtime, never allowing him peace and quiet. His outstanding memory capabilities allowed him to perfectly recall any given day during his lifetime. His main priorities included: running Black International, getting to know the lovely Ms. Sophia, and wanting to keep her safe from any possible threats.
• Amelia Sophia Cavall (a.k.a. Sophie), the 25-year-old model, received death threats through social media. A sudden upheaval in her life made her suspicious of everyone. And the emotional distress she experienced made her more and more uncomfortable with: everyday conflict, her job, the photo shoots, social gatherings, and knowing who to trust.
As I read both books, I couldn't get enough of the chemistry and angst that existed between Oliver Black and Sophie Cavall. They were quirky, complex characters, hiding parts of their broken selves. I enjoyed their good times and bad, but most especially...the dueling, sometimes humorous banter that existed between them. My favorite, comical scene occurred during their family's Thanksgiving feast. Their conversation was wickedly, laugh-out-loud funny!
I loved getting to know and understand what made these two characters tick! The Author created outstanding, well-developed main and secondary characters with hidden depths that branched into unexpected directions. There were a lot of important secondary characters that directly impacted Oliver and Sophie's chance at happiness. I was never quite sure if some of these shady characters were friends or foes. I found myself analyzing each of the characters: their motives and intent. The ominous characters added plenty of action and drama to this unpredictable series!
The overall plot contained a lot of mystery and suspense, keeping me on my toes: alert and guessing! I must have had a million conspiracy theories running throughout my mind. As I read the first book, Diamond in the Rough, I experienced some confusion that made it move a bit slowly at times. But I promise you this: the more you read, the more that's revealed, the better this series gets! The second book, Black Diamond, had a quicker pace and revealed some major shockers! It ended in a teasing, 'I can't wait to see what happens next' kind-of-way!
The Diamond In The Rough Series was a beautiful, hidden gem, a DIAMOND to be exact, because it's extremely unique and outstanding! I give this amazing series my 'Stamp of Approval' and highly recommend it!
The third and final book will be coming out sometime in early Spring, 2016! I can't wait to read it!!!
My Overall Rating of Both Books: 4+ Stars!!!
• Diamond in the Rough (Book #1): 3.5-4 Stars!
• Black Diamond (Book #2): 4.5-5 Stars!!!
Iosly wait for more of her stories
Inside this riveting book, readers know someone is after Sophie. That someone wants her dead...and yet she survived. But she knows it won't be long before that same person comes after her again. Then there was the blossoming romance between Sophie and a rich bachelor, Oliver. Now, it seems Sophie was right. The media has done its best at pulling them apart...but does that mean these two irresistible characters are done with one another? Elisa Marie Hopkins is the queen of suspense. Her novels are the best romantic suspense thrillers, I have ever read. She beats my favorite bestselling writers in this genre. For fans of Kendra Elliot, Melinda Leigh, J.D. Robb, and Lisa Jackson, then this is a must-read for you.
Black Diamond intrigues readers from page one. Sending them spiraling straight into danger, entangled romance and a race to survive death. Elisa Marie Hopkins is indeed a talented writer. Her characters are so real and her scenes are believable. The plot is well-written and moves at a fast pace. This book keeps readers, at the edge of their seats waiting for what happens next...suspense hangs everywhere...Black Diamond is an impressive read. Overall, I highly recommend it to readers everywhere.
But all of those thoughts aside, this is such a well written, heart wrenching, butterflies in your stomach kinda feeling and a roller coaster ride of a book. Everything of all that combined. And what do you get? I broken heart. (I'm just kidding.)
I love love love Oliver Black. But what he did at the end - I mean seriously - what is that? You're only hurting yourself and others too. Especially Sophia.
I adore how their relationship resolves and the whole story line. It is just so perfect. Sophia's stubbornness and Oliver's possessiveness. They are just so perfect for each other. Basically.
Elisa is a super talented author and super nice on her social medias (totally unrelatable). I really cannot wait to find out more of this story. I will wait for it.
