    And yep the Italian deal was exactly what I thought it was excuse me while I take a moment to internally dissect Maxime inch by delicious inch what a complete an utter toss bag.Poor poor Zoe she s certainly been put through the emotional ringer by him.His actions here actually defy all sense of compassion and empathy.It s like he can t understand why she would even be upset and even seems to think she ll get over it with time no chance their sunshine, talk about needing a big reality check.Maxi And yep the Italian deal was exactly what I thought it was excuse me while I take a moment to internally dissect Maxime inch by delicious inch what a complete an utter toss bag.Poor poor Zoe she s certainly been put through the emotional ringer by him.His actions here actually defy all sense of compassion and empathy.It s like he can t understand why she would even be upset and even seems to think she ll get over it with time no chance their sunshine, talk about needing a big reality check.Maxime s constant manipulations and blase attitude towards a woman that has shown him nothing but love and regard well he deserves to lose her.I hope he chokes on his regret and I for one will be watching gleefully with pure delight at all the grovelling he will have to perform to maybe win Zoe s affections back.That aside this kept my attention throughout and I was definitely invested in the unfolding drama.This was also excellently written full of passion and heat and even when I was hating Maxime which was a lot of the time let me tell you.I was also hoping he d have an epiphany and realise just what he held in the palm of his hand for an intelligent bloke he wasn t half dense at times sigh.Zoe well I just wanted her to make a stand so I was cheering her on from the sidelines when she finally decided enough was enough.This ended leaving me wantingand I am going to be on absolute pins waiting for the final piece of this story.I voluntarily reviewed a copy of Diamonds in the rough Diamonds are forever trilogy 2.Reviewed By Beckie Bookwormhttps www.facebook.com beckiebookworm www.beckiebookworm.com

    Sigh another cliffhanger Why do they torture us so I could kick Maxime s ass dick Just when you think everything is calming down and moving forward, you know there has to be a big twist in the plot Pauls gets me again with the cliffy on this one.If you read my notes I leave on Goodreads while I m reading the book, you know I was very frustrated in certain parts of the story Especially towards the end when Maxime throws Zoe for a loop and really catches the reader Sigh another cliffhanger Why do they torture us so I could kick Maxime s ass dick Just when you think everything is calming down and moving forward, you know there has to be a big twist in the plot Pauls gets me again with the cliffy on this one.If you read my notes I leave on Goodreads while I m reading the book, you know I was very frustrated in certain parts of the story Especially towards the end when Maxime throws Zoe for a loop and really catches the reader off guard GrrI don t think I have gotten over that yet I m just hoping that when book 3 comes out we don t find that she has made a critical error But I say you go, girl.Diamonds in the Rough is frustrating, passionate, and super hot because of their amazing connection together But it also pissed me off too Maybe by the time book 3 comes out with the conclusion I will have calmed down Maybe Pauls is an amazing writer in the darker side of romance novels She does a fabulous job blending the light in between the dark Her books are a compulsion that I just can t miss copy received for review considerationhttps amidlifewife.com diamonds in

    4.5 This book picks up where Dust left off And it s another incredible read.My heart is torn over Zoe and Maxime These two find themselves in an impossible situation.Zoe has fallen in love with her kidnapper And who can blame her Maxime is the ultimate fantasy in so many ways But apart from him she finds herself alone She s shunned by his family and doesn t have a single friend She s lonely but in love In love with a man who believes he s incapable of loving her in return.In reality Maxi 4.5 This book picks up where Dust left off And it s another incredible read.My heart is torn over Zoe and Maxime These two find themselves in an impossible situation.Zoe has fallen in love with her kidnapper And who can blame her Maxime is the ultimate fantasy in so many ways But apart from him she finds herself alone She s shunned by his family and doesn t have a single friend She s lonely but in love In love with a man who believes he s incapable of loving her in return.In reality Maxime is also a prisoner He just has a longer leash He s trapped into this life with pressure bearing down from all sides Yet he does everything within his power to make Zoe happy Now don t get the wrong idea While I truly believe he loves her He also manipulates and controls her every move.I have to be honest At times the first half of this book annoyed me It felt like a never ending cycling of makeup sex But stick with it It gets good, so so very good Now ultimately what happens is not a surprise We ve known this was coming But the way the story unfolds is breathtaking I was reading until the early hours And then I couldn t sleep Playing the ending over and over Trying to work out where it will go from here It s a long time since a book has left me so desperate for the next one My total lack of patience is the main reason I avoid cliffhangers.Seriously how can I wait until September I just couldn t move past this So a re read of Beauty in the Broken will have to do for now.I voluntarily read a review copy kindly provided by the author

    Five shining stars sparkling with its own brilliance Wow Ms Pauls has outdone herself with this installment of her Diamond Magnate trilogy I didn t think I could become anyinvested in these characters than I was at the ending of Diamonds in the Dust, but I am now totally engaged with this hero and heroine both individually and as a couple My heart hurt for Zoe as she struggled to find something normal in this new life and when Max attempted to give it to her, my heart hurt for him Five shining stars sparkling with its own brilliance Wow Ms Pauls has outdone herself with this installment of her Diamond Magnate trilogy I didn t think I could become anyinvested in these characters than I was at the ending of Diamonds in the Dust, but I am now totally engaged with this hero and heroine both individually and as a couple My heart hurt for Zoe as she struggled to find something normal in this new life and when Max attempted to give it to her, my heart hurt for him as well Their whole dysfunctional relationship had me wanting to cry While there is a ton of sizzle and steam, there isn t a lot of action here and the feel of darkness is not quite as intense as in book 1 However, this never bogged down as this couple worked through their issues The drama varies from light to heavy throughout and just when you start to think things are settling down, something new is revealed This story took me to a place that I never saw coming and tossed my emotions in every direction along the way I loved that I couldn t predict what was going to happen and as a result I m evenclueless about what the next book will hold Altogether, that leaves me very anxious and excited to get the next book into my greedy hands as soon as possible Dual POVSafe view spoiler no om drama ow drama cook had hooked up with H at some point in the past and H is clueless about why the h questions him about keeping her on as an employee as it was just sex at this point the H has not cheated on the h hide spoiler Triggers view spoiler no apparent triggers hide spoiler

    Really liked this one.Lots of angst.Family issues, other woman drama.Cliffhanger ending.It ended and I was desperate for the next book.It s part of a trilogy so you must read in order though the series can be read as a standalone.I don t want to give too much away but I liked how the Hero was trying for the heroine but he seems at times a lost cause then he gives her the world.Next book September.No intimate scenes other than the Hero and heroine.Some darker themes.

    6 beautiful stars This story twisted my mind and at 70% I was having heart palpitations My heart is breaking for Zoe All she wants is someone to love her and to be able to love back.I am so angry at Maxime How can one man be so cold and cruel He is willing to give her everything except the one thing she craves and needs.Another ending that was totally unexpected and it leaves me wanting
