Book Review | Diamond In The Rough #BlogTour @XpressoTours

If you are looking for some dark romance this weekend then you will certainly want to check out Diamond In The Rough.

I’m stepping off a nine hour flight when it happens. 
A white van. A dark hood. Every woman’s worst nightmare.

Now I’m trapped in an abandoned church. The man who took me says I won’t be hurt. The man in the cell next to me says that’s a lie. I’ll fight with every ounce of strength, but there are secrets in these walls. I’ll need every single one of them to survive.

I like a surprising read and Diamond In The Rough definitely falls into that category for me. I liked that it started with a novella that shows the history between Holly and Elijah, starting to create the chemistry, and gives a little insight into Holly’s dynamics with her family.

The plot is great, it was different to what I was expecting going in which I really liked and there is always something happening. All the action really helps to build the tension in the story, it also means that it is a gripping and fast paced read, I honestly felt like I flew through it I was so invested.

I really enjoyed the chemistry between Holly and Elijah, they are very different and that just works so well. Having that previous connection was great because it made their attraction to each other in the circumstances they find themselves in more genuine. At first I was worried that Holly might be too predictable for this type of story a bit naive and too trusting, but again I was surprised by her fire and resilience. Elijah was the perfect kind of enigmatic grey character, he is mysterious and unpredictable and I could help but hope that he would make it through unscathed.

I was kept guessing right until the last page and I’m a little gutted that I’m going to have to wait for the next book, I want it now, I am so looking forward to seeing where this story goes next.
