A white van. A dark hood. Every woman's worst nightmare.

"Five glowing stars! Diamond in the Rough is the dark and dangerous world that I love from Skye Warren. You will be completely caught up in Elijah and Holly's story from the first page to the last." - New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig

Everything in their romance seemed to happen too soon and not believable. The word phrases and sentences were oddly placed, making it sometimes very difficult to follow. There were several times when I was down right confused and had to re-read just to barely comprehend. The romance scenes had no depth and they were basically skimmed over almost every time. This book didn't do it for me, and I skipped on reading or purchasing any other books in this series.

This diamond captivated me! 4 stars This review is going to be short, because if I write about too much then it will be spoiler filled! Yes, Holly is kidnapped but there is a reason and that’s all I can say. Once I realized who Elijah is, I was shocked then elated! Again, that’s all I can say, but that might even be a spoiler! I just wanted to hug him for certain reasons. He is damaged, powerful and commanding, and I would let him ensnare me like Holly did. Holly is stronger than she realizes, and I totally felt for her. They have a connection which starts in Hidden Gem (the prequel novella), so I suggest you read it. She is the light to his dark, and that always fascinates me. The world building enveloped me, and the twists and turns that happened from beginning to end captivated me. This is definitely Skye Warren at her twisty, intense, dark romance best! I loved it, recommend it and cannot wait for the second book! *I received an advanced copy of this ebook for my honest review.*

***** AUDIOBOOK REVIEW ***** Audiobooks like Diamonds in the Rough make me want go and read the the follow up books (Goldmine and Silver Lining) as fast as I can. That says a lot for the audiobook becauseI don't read nearly as much as I used too. Audio is really my preference so it takes a lot for me to want to rush right out to read the books... that isn't me anymore!! Diamond in the Rough was high action and super intense. Holly and Elijah are deep into some dangerous stuff! There's something about diamonds that just amp up the suspense and stressors... and I really found the story intense! (PS I just saw Gold Mine is out on audio too SQUEEEELL) These narrators are so good! Jason Clarke just has a way with his narration. I get pulled into his deep, melodic voice. He really seems to channel Elijah and just gets him. CJ Bloom rocked Holly's personality. I really felt her performance... she brought everything out that Holly was going through. I really loved this narration!!
