Publisher Description

“She’s a pretty wildflower destined for my brother's vase. I'll make her mine, even if how I do it will make flowers wilt.”

 

A DARK FRENCH MAFIA ROMANCE

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.

Ksarak Kent ,

Fabulous read.

Just finished this mid-way point in this masterpiece trilogy. Charmaine Pauls has done it again which is why she is an automatic purchase for me. Whatever she writes, I will read.

We were introduced to Zoe and Maxime in the first book, and here we pick up with those two and a cliff, Charmaine style of course. Which means readers will be taken on a emotional and dramatic ride with characters you’ll love and characters you’ll love to throttle. Can’t wait for the last book.
Five Stars.

Diamonds in the Rough

This series is captivating, the characters become people you find yourself thinking about, their emotions
and the many conflicts from all sides. It has dark elements, with violence.
Twisted true love, is this the worst or the best ? Zoe, kidnapped & isolated, is a very strong young woman, in the first book, “Diamonds in the Dust”.
An excellent read, impressive writing that draws you in and makes you cry right along with Zoe. I’ve found a new favorite author! I wish all of Charmaine Paul’s books were available on Apple Books, now I have to search other ebook sites to find her well written books.

Addicting Dark Romance

Diamonds in the Rough: A Diamond Magnate Novel (Diamonds are Forever Book 2)- Charmaine Pauls

This second book in the series evoked even more emotional angst , highs and lows,than the first book. The story of Maxine and Zoe continues with Max doing everything he can to make Zoe happy as “his” female.A big problem is his inability to actually love anyone (although I believe he does), and his loyalty to “The Family” and what he believes are his “ responsibilities”.

Zoe continues to fall deeper for this anti-hero kidnapper that has gone way past Stockholm syndrome. I applauded her attempts to assert herself around his family and staff. Her determination to succeed at a fashion design school and even reaching out for friendship.

The story was totally engrossing and I developed the same love/hate feelings for Max. The final twist though just gutted me and I was glad she just didn’t go along with Max’s betrayal. Another cliffhanger ending that left me breathless and waiting impatiently for Book 3.
