Synopsis:
It's cold outside, but the drama is hot!
The Diamond sisters jet to the mountains for spring break, and Savannah's flirt-mance with an international pop star heats up as her pursuit of stardom succeeds. But is this romance meant to be, or has the right guy been in front of her all along? Meanwhile, Courtney takes the next step with her secret boyfriend—and future stepbrother—and as their parents' wedding approaches, the pressure's on to reveal their relationship.
Peyton's figuring out a plan for her future, but she still feels guilty about getting her former bodyguard fired and wonders if she can get over him in the arms of someone else. But the biggest bombshell will change everything once again, because Madison's ready to tell the huge secret she's uncovered. And with the boy who betrayed her but who could be the love of her life fighting for his own life, she might need the Diamond sisters more than ever.

Review

I received this book via Barclay Publicity for reading/reviewing purposes only. Check out my full FTC Disclaimer under the "Policy" tab.

Cover: All of Madow's covers are gorgeous. They are so interesting, and I just love it. It's really what made me want to read this series. I absolutely love it!

Characters: This is what I enjoyed about Diamonds are Forever. The characters are to die for! You get insight on almost every main character’s life and get to see how they are feeling about things. I loved the multiple POVs.

I read some praise for one of the books in the Diamond sisters trilogy somewhere saying that you are bound to connect with one of the girls, and that is absolutely true. Courtney is me. I am Courtney. It was amazing to see how similar we were. It was really weird. I saw Peyton as my older sister. They are so much alike except for the style which is me, it’s not funny.

I really connected with Diamonds are Forever because it was like the girls were my sisters. They had such different personalities which Madow described very well. She really understands that the hardest thing in life is connecting with someone that is so different from you and the only reason you talk is because of family. Not a lot of writers get that which makes Diamonds are Forever such a fantastic book.

Plot: Tbh, non-adventure books bore me. That’s why I only occasionally review contemporary/romance books. I always run into the problem that nothing seems to happen. That’s kind of how I feel about Diamonds are Forever. Looking back, there was really no major plot line that stood out. I think it was written just as a progressive novel. Is that a thing? There wasn’t anything majorly exciting or climatic. It was like high school drama written over a period of time. Now that was realistic. All that crap that high school puts you through. It’s not exactly exciting…

Ending: Alright, the ending was a bit cliche. Everyone gets a happily ever after. I feel like that was a good ending for this story in particular, but it’s not real. Not everyone gets all of their wishes to come true. Not everyone falls in love at eighteen or sixteen. That was really the only part that I disliked. It talked about everyone’s one true love and stuff, but it’s unrealistic. If this were real life, none of them would probably be talking to each other. It would just be a distant memory of their first loves.

Overall: I did like this book. Madow’s writing style is pretty awesome and unique. I think I mentioned everything I didn’t like. I need to read the beginning of this series. It was a pretty cool book. Just imagine if this happened to you. That would be awesome.

I’ll probably read this book again. I liked it that much. And I want to read a lot of Madow’s other books. She’s a really good author, and she’s a really nice person. 

One last thing, imagine how cool the last name Diamond would be haha
