Excerpt:

The dream comes to me before death.

I’ve seen it before. It comes to soldiers taking their last ragged breaths. They see their mothers kneeling over them in the middle of the godforsaken desert. They see a beloved wife holding their hand. I don’t have a mother or a wife. So it makes sense that the angel would come in the form of a stranger.

Except my angel begs me to let her go.

“I have money. And my family, they’ll pay a ransom.”

I walk through the conversation as if it’s a forest, touching the leaves and searching for animals beneath the foliage. She’s a puzzle, this angel, but she’s mine. I won’t give her up to die alone.

Adam comes downstairs. You can last seven minutes.

That’s when I know this is no strange dream. There is a woman in the cell with me. Christ. “Don’t listen to him,” I tell her, my voice low. The words echo off the damp stone walls. “Don’t fucking listen to a word he says.”

“You don’t want water?” Adam asks, taunting.

It’s painful how badly I need that goddamn water bottle he’s flaunting. But I have no illusions about my injuries. I’m going to die in this old French prison, and the part that pisses me off the most, the only thing that I really regret, is not taking Adam down with me. “He’s fucking with you.”

“I’ll do it,” the woman says, her voice brave and wavering at the same damn time.

I try to sit up, to stop her, to save her, but pain lashes my side. It blinds me. Ludicrous, the idea that I could save anyone in this state. “Don’t trust him. God, don’t let him—”

Don’t let him touch you.

If he kidnapped this woman, he’s going to do more than touch her.

There’s a squeak as the old metal protests its use.

Shuffling. Movement. The sounds filter through my haze of pain and hunger and the never-ending knife of thirst. They filter through with a bolt of goddamn outrage.

How dare he touch her? She’s my angel of death. Mine.

I shake my head against the cold concrete. No, that’s the blood loss speaking. She’s a real woman. Flesh and blood. And she’s going to get hurt.

“Let’s bring you into the light,” Adam says with his flawless, fake French accent.

It’s pitch-fucking-black down here, but somehow he finds a tiny shaft of light. The door is open a crack. Hope surges through me. No matter how unlikely escape, the human spirit won’t give up.

The woman cries out as she stumbles over something. Her back hits the bars with a clang. And then I can actually see her face in more than monochrome shadows. The delicate bridge of her nose, the eyes wide with fear. Blue. They’re blue. Her lips are a full, flawless pout, and my hope rips to shreds.

She’s beautiful. Incandescent, even in this hellhole. How will she ever survive?

“There we are,” Adam says, sounding very pleased with himself. He’s crowding her, one arm holding the bars, the other cupping her jaw. His perfectly tailored suit was made for this moment. It could be the picture of any man flirting with his date after dinner, stealing a kiss outside the restaurant.

Except he didn’t date her. He kidnapped her.

Review:

Skye Warren never fails to disappoint in delivering a gritty dark romance that will leave you wanting for more! I love the sizzling chemistry between Elijah and Holly.

Diamond in the Rough had such a great plot and was so masterfully written. You will definitely feel torn as you get to empathize with the characters and the motivation behind their actions.

I can’t wait to hear more of Elijah and Holly’s story! That cliffhanger ending made me so intrigued!

Book Blurb:

Our relationship, mine and Cole’s, isn’t a simple one.
It’s complicated, frustrating and, at times, downright ugly.
You see, I fell for a man who couldn’t love me back.

Hard as I tried to avoid the dimpled prince of Seattle, life threw us together.
As much as we resisted temptation, he burrowed his way into my heart.
Sinful as our attraction was, our destinies were entwined.

Don’t worry. Ours is a love story, after all. I had no idea how our fairytale would play out, but one thing I knew for certain?

Fate had a twisted sense of humor, and she did not play fair.

Review:

This my first time reading a book written by Krissy Daniels. And I must say that she took me by surprise. The story, even from just the blurb itself, made me captivated from the get-go. Cole and Nat were such intriguing characters that you can’t just help but empathize with them.

I thought that it was just some romantic love at first sight type of story. So I was pleasantly surprised when it turned out to be an angsty and emotional rollercoaster of a love story. The story has complicated relationships and friendships. You get that raw and emotional feeling of being torn between rooting for these two characters and also wanting them to do the right thing at the same time.

Overall, I’m very impressed with the way Krissy Daniels has written this book. It had the right pacing and the perfect blend of angst and romance that will leave you very satisfied in the end. I’m looking forward to reading more of her upcoming books!

Tripp Wilder is more than a friend…

It’s the best of both worlds. She gets all the fun aspects of a relationship–the sex, the cuddling, the secrets in the dark–without all the obligations and resentment that go along with it.

Ember Stevens is everything he wants…

Except she’s not interested in commitment.

Stuck between a rock and a hard-on, Tripp agrees to show Ember how to navigate the world of casual sex, but he’s determined to convince her that nothing can go wrong when a friendship comes with a guaranteed happy ending.

Review:

For readers, especially romance lovers like me, there are certain characters in a particular story that you know from the get-go that they’re meant to be. That’s what it was like for me while I was reading Friends with Benefits. Tripp and Ember were meant to be together. I knew that from the first pages of reading their story.

I love Ember’s grit and enduring sacrifice for her family. Her unconditional love for her little twin sisters is something that’s truly awe-inspiring. Despite her emotional baggage and unavailability, she has found solace with Tripp.

I have been intrigued by this pair ever since I caught a glimpse of them in the first two Friend Zone books. And I must say that the wait was totally worth it! I couldn’t stop reading until I reached the end.

I loved their easy and effortless friendship. When it shifted into something more, I just couldn’t help but root for their love. Like I said, it’s one of those stories when you just know that these two characters are meant to be.
