Book Review #20
25-year-old model Sophia Cavall has a seemingly nice life walking the runway until she begins to receive death threats through social media and is almost kidnapped by a masked figure. She tries to fight off her assailant, but luckily the attempt ends in failure when mysterious business magnate Oliver Black intervenes.
Sophie doesn’t know it, but the stakes are high: her life and her heart. Desperately needing support, she turns to a few trusted people, and to Oliver most of all. But can he be trusted, who speaks the truth, and the question on everyone’s lips: who is the man in the mask?
Her checkered past returns to entangle her. She will come to realize that it is not dead after all…it is still very much alive.
A Diamond in the Rough is a love story, a thriller, funny in parts and moving in others. Most of all, it is a gripping debut novel that will have you guessing and turning pages until you reach the end.
- Sophia and Oliver’s relationship are full of clichés but that’s okay, because sometimes in life, you just need a dose of clichéness (I hope that is a legitimate word).
- Both of the two main characters – Sophia and Oliver has such a complex personality. But on top of it all, they still try and work their love to salvage their ups and downs of a relationship.
- This emotional-ride-of-a-story is devoted more of a real life relationship rather than fictional because couples do fight and quarrel sometimes and it is not at all like a stroll in the park (well, except for Oliver because he is the definition of perfection!!).
- Love forces us to sacrifice and make risky choices but in the end, it’ll all be worth it when you have your love ones beside you.
- Elisa’s writing is so well written and to that, it piques my interest to go in depth – both the book and author.
- I notice that there are some parts where the scene just jumps to the next part and so, the graphic description was not very clear.
- I really, true love this book from cover to back. Plus, that cover is so simple yet super classy.
- I had a really good time reading this book and I didn’t regret spending my time at all devouring myself into this amazing book.
- Highly recommended.
