This book is the conclusion to the Diamond Does series by Ivy Nelson. She has outdone herself with this book. She maintains the deep development of characters like she has done in previous books. This means that you fall in love with the characters and as they grow throughout the book so does your relationship with them. You can’t help but feel everything that they feel. There is suspense, action, romance, and very steamy steamy scenes. You will find yourself going on the adventure that her characters take in this book. You will find yourself talking out loud to the book because you just can’t help but add your own two cents about the situations that these characters get into. If you’ve read the whole series, you will see some characters that you recognize and it is nice to see where they are at in this story.
Gemma and Russel seem to be fighting everything around them and fighting for their relationship at the same time. We watch as Russel goes from protector to lover to protector and back to lover. It is nice seeing the rough edges thaw a little when Gemma is around. Gemma maintains her fiercely strong self worth throughout the book. She doesn’t like to show weakness and feels conflicted when her guard is down and those weaknesses are shown. The struggle that these characters go through are struggles that could happen in everyday life. No, I am not talking about the suspense part of the book but ore their moral struggles or self imposed lines they won’t cross.
This book has tons of steam. If you have some triggers about masochism and sadism, please be advise that this book is nothing but that type of BDSM relationship and take caution when deciding if to read it. If you don’t have any triggers this book is amazing!!! You will love the suspense, action, character development, and obviously the steam.
