Forever: A Diamond Doms Novel by Ivy Nelson. Ok first things first I personally recommend reading this series in order. One because you truly don’t want to miss any of the other books and two because it flows better that way. I went back and ended up just binging the entire series and I have absolutely zero regrets on my lost sleep. This book had everything I was looking for and definitely brought this series to an end the author could be proud of. Is this type of story for everyone maybe not but I for one was hooked from beginning to end and couldn’t put it down. The characters are complex and relatable, they simply draw you into their world and I loved getting lost in the pages with them. It’s well written and paced nicely never feeling rushed or lacking anything. I honestly wish I could read this book and the rest of the series all over for the first time but I’ll have to just add them to my read again list. Five huge stars and highly recommended!
I absolutely love a dom based book and Russel does not disappoint he is hot, serious and a strong alpha male. Gemma is married but the attraction her and Russel have for each other is undeniable and she may be able to give him full control and submit in the bedroom but can she do it in everyday life.
What a great book!
Forever is book #9 in this series and I would encourage everyone to read the other books. I def felt like I landed in the living room of a family I didn’t know yet. To say I didn’t want to put it down is an understatement. It has great characters, great action, and great plot line. Gemma comes across kind of superficial at first, but she grew on me as book went on. A few twists in this story that I actually didn’t see coming so that was fun. Needless to say I will be reading other books in the series!

Forever:A Diamond Doms novel, is the last book of this series. I enjoy a good BDSM book and this book does not disappoint. This is my first read of the series and although I hadn’t been introduced to the characters before, it was easy to follow along. On top of the kink in this book, the underlying storyline between the characters, keeps you on our toes and is a great way to finish out the series. I can’t wait to go back and start at the beginning of the books and get introduced to all the characters in each of their own stories.
Forever: A Diamond Doms Novel by Ivy Nelson
This is not the first book by Nelson that I’ve read. It’s also not the first Diamond Doms novel I’ve read. The Diamond Doms Series can be read as standalones or in order.
Russell had one job to do and that was to keep Holly and her friend Gemma safe. Then her husband comes up dead and they aren’t sure why. Russell starts to have feelings for Gemma. The quote I chose for Russell is: “I’m sorry, Gemma. I won’t call you that again. If you’ll excuse me, I’ve left someone waiting.”
Gemma is wanting out of the marriage. Then he shows up dead and Russell is the one who told her. She has feelings for Russell, but isn’t exactly sure what his feelings are for her. The quote I chose for Gemma is: “No. Idiot. I’m saying our marriage is not the traditional love story. We aren’t in love, we don’t have sex, and we will never have children. In fact, before our lives blew up, we were on the path to lining things up for a divorce. Enough time had passed that it wouldn’t harm either family.”
Highly recommended for Dark Romance lovers.
Forever: A Diamond Doms Novel by Ivy Nelson
I was intrigued by this book and have learned some of my limits on what sort of things interest me in that world. There were some things I never would have ever considered, but we all like things that other people don’t quite understand.
I have not read the other books in this series which I think was a disadvantage because there were several established characters and their storylines that I didn’t have the background on, well at least not yet. I would suggest reading these in order since this tied up loose ends.
Russell was a great guy is seemed but too intense for me. He certainly knew how to care for a woman, lucky Gemma. He would give her exactly what she needed and cared for her more than I think a normal partner work.
I envy Gemma in some ways. She knew what she needed, had no problems (mostly) vocalizing her needs and enjoyed every moment.
I would like to go back and read the others in this series so I can find out how everyone ended up where they were.
This is the last book of the Diamond Doms Series. This book was a really good end to the series. I’ve read the previous books and fell in love with them and all the relationships along the way. This book showed a great side of Russell but I wish there was more from Gemma. I will say the book did wrap up any previous questions and reintroduced you to previous characters in the series.
Review by Autum Talamante
What a beautiful peek inside a sadist/masochist relationship. The sparks between Russell and Gemma set the pages on fire! This book is full of action, heat and romance and gives such an inside look at what a great relationship between a sadist and a masochist can be like. Gemma has to fully trust Russell in order to play out some of the scenes that she does with him. Even though she doesn’t fully realize that she has fallen for him and trusts him until much later in the book, it’s quite apparent that she does. It just wouldn’t work if she didn’t. Russell is such an amazing guy, even though he’s been badly hurt in the past, he is so tender with her at times and does not once take advantage of her. This book wrapped up the series beautifully and gave peeks at what the other couples were up to and how their live were progressing as well.
This is the last book in this series and I went into this book blind. The biggest complaint that I have is that I started this series on the last book. I will be going back to read the rest of them as soon as possible. So this book was majorly hot. Ivy Nelson had me glued to Russell and Gemma’s story. There were a few things that I was confused about but that could be due to not reading the books from the beginning. Overall it was a good read.

I was excited to find out how this series ended and see the resolution to the overarching storyline. I was also excited for Gemma and Russell’s book. They have instant chemistry, and I loved watching their relationship play out. Russel is a sadist and Gemma is a masochist, so it was not quite what I generally enjoy, but I knew going in, and it didn’t detract from the story for me. And even though it was not my favourite book in the series, I am glad I read it.
The story was okay, but I felt like some parts were skimmed or skipped over, and I was disappointed that one scene in particular was not played out, we saw the set up and found out the aftermath of it, but no real details on *how* it happened were shared.
**spoilers** I wasn’t a fan of how one-sided the reconciliation was. Gemma took all the blame for what happened and Russell took very little, even though I feel it was not her fault, other than lack of communication.
This book is the ninth book in the series, however, this book can be read as a standalone. I will say though, I cannot imagine not wanting to read the other books with an author this good! Ivy Nelson seems well educated on the fetishes and has such a great writing style. I can’t wait to read more!
Following Russell and Gemma was a treat! Russell has a problem though, he can’t be with a married woman but he knows his lust can’t hold out for long. Matthew and Gemma have to be 100% clear with Russell exactly what their relationship is. Everything that follows is written so well! Nelson did a great job on the series!
Forever is book nine in the Diamond Doms series by Ivy Nelson. I am new to this author’s work, so I am entering this series at the wrong end. BUT!!! In no way did that take anything away from this story. This story was sexy, very arousing, intriguing and just totally enthralling. I was very intrigued by the very short blurb. It drew me in instantly. I had to know about this couple and try to work my way around all that I missed from coming in for the last book. The characters were insatiable and very entertaining. I was drawn to the way the author portrayed each character. The interaction between them was magnetic and impossible to drag your attention away from. This was a one sitting read for me. I could not put it down. There is nothing better than a take charge man who is dominant but considerate. They are not afraid to be heavy handed but it is all with the care of their partner foremost in their minds. There was so much to this story that tickled my senses and appealed to my little smutty mind. It was so well and respectfully written, with suspense, mystery and lots of energetic activity. Hats off to Ivy Nelson. I done things backward by reading the last book first, but I am definitely going to be purchasing the entire series and diving in asap. A steamy hot and cleverly written story that will get the blood pumping and the heart racing. But do yourself a favour and start from book one to experience all that I am sure this series is. 5 stars.
This was my first romance book that featured BDSM and boy did it take me by a surprise! This book left nothing to the imagination when it comes to describing exactly what’s going on. The only reason for the 3 stars is that this isn’t my jam when it comes to reading. The book has a strong plot, but the BDSM was a little much for me. The book did make me want to become a secret spy because of all the action that place.
What can I say, other than my partner will be forever grateful to Ivy Nelson for this series? I never thought that I would develop an interest in the BDSM lifestyle, nor find enjoyment out of reading this type of novel, but I can certainly say both are on my radar now. I do have the full series of Diamond Doms in my collection, however, did not have the ability to read all of them prior to this marvelous conclusion. Luckily, I found it quite easy to piece together most of what has transpired before Russell and Gemma’s story. I truly do look forward to reading the rest of this series as soon as time permits!
At the very start of this action, crazy love story, you’re pulled into Solitaire, pretty much the most frequented, and ultimate retreat for many of the characters, being that it provides them with the place to do what they all embrace in their BDSM lifestyles. Immediately, we are curious about Gemma, and Russell and how the two of them will get along. There is an immediate ZING in the air between them, and it’s nearly impossible to put the book down because the amount of curiosity built in this first chapter carries on throughout the entire novel. This love story is a bonus to the action plot that this group has to endure and resolve, which in itself, is mind-blowing. If you’re looking for an action-packed, edge of your seat read, with the most intriguing, descriptive sex scenes you could ever imagine, this book is for you! I have nothing but good things to say about the craftsmanship that went into creating this work of art, thank you, Ivy Nelson, for this new venture. Highly recommend!
Ivy Nelson officially has me hooked! This book had everything you need to get your fix on dominant, alpha type men! I could not put this book down once I began. Russell and Gemma definitely heated up the pages, but also gave us a few tender moments.
While the book does have some very intense BDSM there is also a fair amount of danger and suspense. We also get to explore the loving side of Russel when it comes to Gemma. This was my second book by Ivy Nelson but I can say I will definitely be exploring the entire series.
This is the 9th book in the Diamond Doms series. This is a Dark Romance novel and is 322 pages in length. This story follows Russell and Gemma. Russell is tasked with keeping his friends wife, Holly, safe, along with her bff, Gemma. The problem with Gemma, is she is a giant pain in the rear. But one he kind of likes. So much so, she makes his dom side twitch. But he cannot lose focus on the task at hand. People could die. This was a great ending to a great series.
Forever was first my novel by Ivy Nelson, and I found it rather interesting. This novel was not an introduction to a sadist and masochist sub-lifestyle but a deep plunge. There were certain scenes that I found uncomfortable, but Ivy’s creative writing style kept me engaged. I liked the chemistry between Russell and Gemma- the struggle between head and heart was very relatable. Forever is encompassed with hot off the charts chemistry, suspense, action and mystery.
Forever is the 9th and final instalment in the Diamond Doms series by Ivy Nelson. I have done this completely backwards and started reading this series by reading the final book. I enjoyed it so much and I’m intrigued by so many of the other couples in it that I have the first 8 books on my kindle now and hope to find time to read them soon.
This book is filled with so much drama, intrigue and danger. I was glued to it from the very beginning and just didn’t want to put it down.
As well as the drama and intrigue, this is a BDSM book. It’s unlike any BDSM book that I have ever read. I had never previously read a book that contained sadism/masochism. I really had my eyes opened with some of the workings of this kind of relationship. I have to admit that one of the acts that Gemma, the masochist, liked to have carried out on her, really disturbed me. I had no idea that this was something any woman would ever want carried out on her. This did not affect my enjoyment of the book. It just surprised me a great deal.
I do have to say that I absolutely loved reading Russell and Gemma’s story. Both are amazing characters that I could have read so much more about.
I definitely recommend this book and I look forward to reading the first 8 books in the series.
This was such a fantastic read – I loved every second of it. The writing was exciting, steamy, sexy and oh so captivating! I loved the characters and reading about them has been amazing, Gemma was a great female lead, not what I expected – she could definitely hold her own! She had a great amount of sassiness about her! Russell was a great Dom – exactly how I like my Doms!! I loved the chemistry between the two characters!
I haven’t read all of the books in the series but I absolutely want to now, this was a brilliant read and I would highly recommend it!
I love BDSM stories and this was not a disappointment. The Solitaire Club is in danger of being destroyed, but by who? Russell is in charge of keeping two women safe, Holly and Gemma. Holly’s husband is out of the country for a business trip. Gemma and her husband are getting divorced, but Russell has his own rules. He is willing to dominate her, but not have intimacy with her till the divorce is final.
This is the first story in this series I have read and will be going to read the other books to get some more of the backstories of the other couples. I love the attitude and mouthiness of Gemma , I am also a bratty submissive so she calls to my heart. I really enjoyed Ivy Nelson’s writing, even though this is a BDSM story, it wasn’t all about sex. Who is trying to destroy the club? How is the enemy getting through the lines of security as easily as they are? I love stories like this that make me feel so many emotions and rushing to turn the pages to find out what is next.
I didn’t realize this was part of a series. I have no read any books prior to this one but, I may have to read the last few at some point to understand the characters better
I did like the character and the chemistry between them. The book was alittle much compared to what I usually read. I love a good Dom / Sub book but this one was much more then I like to read.
Russell was married once before and every time he meets a sub, there is something missing. No one has ever been able to get him to take the next step past a scene. Will Gemma be the one to get to him and give him what he needs. I thought this book was well written and was able to hold my attention.
review by @xchellex
I was silly and didn’t realize this book was one of many in the series. It didn’t seem to matter though and I thoroughly enjoyed it! All of the characters are so entertaining and this steamy book was great from start to finish. I xant wait to go back and read all of the books from the series! This author gained a serious fan!
Forever by Ivy Nelson is book nine of the Diamond Doms series. I didn’t read any of the other books in this series before jumping into this one. I don’t feel like I lost any of the story but if you want to meet all of the characters, you should start at the beginning. I will definitely be going back and reading the rest of the series.
Russell has to keep Holly and Gemma safe. That’s his only priority. Gemma sure doesn’t make that an easy task. There are people after Club Solitaire and part of Russell’s past May hold the key. Russell didn’t expect to feel anything for Gemma but once he sees her, there is instant attraction. Both Gemma and Russell have some baggage that gets in their way. Russell doesn’t really do relationships and Gemma’s been through a lot recently but maybe they can act on this attraction. The attraction between Russell and Gemma is just the beginning of what his book covers. There is so much mystery, danger and intrigue you can’t wait to find out what happens.
This was a good read, even coming into the series at the end. I did, however, feel like there there was a lot of Holly’s storyline in this book even though it was more Russell and Gemma’s book but otherwise it was a good read and the characters were great!
Forever is the final book in the Diamond Doms series by Ivy Nelson.
Ivy does a fantastic job at tying up all of the loose ends in this final story (no one wants to end a series with their questions unanswered). Russel and Gemma were a brilliant couple to end things on. I really enjoyed the tenderness and loving relationship between them, as well as the BDSM elements. I felt a little disappointed with Gemma at times, she fell into the background several times when she should have been upfront as the leading lady. Russel, however, did not disappoint. The man is seriously HOT!
This book is steamy and sex is a major part of the storyline, so this series might not be for everyone. The books in this series are best read in order to enjoy them fully.
Russell and Gemma have the type of chemistry that will burn up your kindle!
Russell is left in charge of Elijah’s wife, Holly, and her best friend, Gemma, while Elijah is away. Should be easy…until he sees Gemma’s bratty side that has his dom side taking notice. While Russell has played with club members before…this is a whole different story. And, what starts out with some S&M play quickly becomes something more…something that Russell wrote off years ago when his marriage ended.
Both Russell and Gemma have secrets that they keep hidden deep within them. But, with a threat against Club Solitaire getting closer and closer, those secrets won’t be hidden for long. Can both of them move beyond their pasts? Are they willing to see if there is a future together?
I did not know this was the conclusion of a series when a started this book…so I can say that this can be read as a standalone. However, I will be going back and reading the rest of the books because I want some of the backstory on other characters that play a part in the story. I really enjoyed Russell and Gemma’s relationship. Yes…it was a brat/dom relationship full of kinks and S&M…but there is so much more to it. I enjoyed them and definitely want to know more about the other members.
This is a gripping read from start to finish. The is book 9 in the Diamond Doms series. If you do read the books in order it builds the characters and the storyline, however it can be read as a standalone and is just as enjoyable.
This is definately an adult romance based around the dominant male and submissive female. However there is an element of danger, and adventure as they try to bring down the people who are looking to harm their friends and family.
The relationship between Gemma and Russell is very intense not only when they are embracing their roles but also in everyday life. Russell has definately met his match with Gemma, she is fiesty and determined and full of sass. As much as she is willing to submit to him in the bedroom in everyday life she isn’t going to make it so easy.
All Russell wants to do is protect her and keep her safe, but how can he do that when she is making plans of her own to bring down their enemy’s.
Their relationship needs to be built on trust but can it survive when one of them breaks that trust by putting themselves and everyone else in danger?
This story will suck you in from page 1 and won’t let go until the last page. There is spice for the romance lover; intrigue for the adventure lover; and lots of romance for the all. The cast is well-written and so intertwined that they just blended into the story like they all belonged together. The plot is fantastic and like a spy novel with some BDSM. Every time I thought I knew what was happening; BAM, plot twist. The women in the book are strong willed and stubborn. They are not held back by much. This author has just been put on my list of favorites. I love a good book that can make my head spin trying to figure out who’s the bad guy and what’s going on. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I highly recommend. 18+ crowd only.
This was a hot 5 star read and I really enjoyed it. Once I started I devoured it.
This was a great ending to the series.
Russell is not into relationships due to an ex, he does have his subs at the club that help with his needs. Gemma was married to Russell’s friend so she was off limits, until things changed. Russell is a dom and he finds his match in Gemma. She is great at challenging him and pushing the right buttons. There is so much more to their story that I don’t want to give away.
We get action, mystery, suspense, steaminess and so much more. We finally get closure on some of the mystery in the series as well. There are some intense BDSM scenes that may cause triggers for some. I highly suggest reading the previous books so that you know the characters and the storyline coming into this book. The author does a great job with her writing and she pulls you right in. I look forward to reading more from her. 1-click and get started today
