ARC Review: Diamonds in the Rough by: Michelle Madow

Diamonds in the Rough

All-access doesn’t mean no problems.

The three Diamond sisters survived the summer in style after coming to live with their long-lost billionaire father. But making a place for themselves at their exclusive new Las Vegas private school is throwing them any number of gold-plated curves. Savannah’s YouTube stardom turns into a Sweet Sixteen reality show extravaganza—with complimentary enemies on the side. Dangerous flirtations don’t keep Peyton from a gamble that will risk far more than she planned to bet. And when Courtney and the sisters’ archenemy, Madison, uncover two explosive secrets, it will rock even this town of glittering illusion—and turn their lives upside down all over again.

Sisterhood, first crushes, and scandalous secrets explode in book two of Michelle Madow’s riveting series, The Secret Diamond Sisters.

I received an ARC for this book in exchange for an honest review. This book is a sequel to another book and I really enjoyed the first book. I love Michelle’s writing style and how she took this book. The events in this book was enough for me to keep me on my toes and anticipation what was going to happen next.  She kept the character personalities so welly separated and every character had it’s own personalities. If you haven’t read the first book Diamonds in the Rough, I would highly recommend it to anyone who likes contemporary and then the series just keeps getting better and better from there.


Yes! I loved this book. I loved the writing style and all the events. The plots flew through the book and I loved how Michelle kept the four point view through the book. These little big secrets that were in the book? Yeah. When I was reading the parts with the huge secrets I was just sitting here thinking OMG WHAT IS GOING ON?! These secrets were so big and they are just gonna blow up in Book 3. I told you it gets better and better. Book 3 is going to have the most drama. I know it.

The romance in this book was great! Romance is probably a very essential thing in this series because a lot of things happen because of the romance and drama between that. The couples in this book are so…ugh! Savannah is probably the most frustrating person in this book when it comes to her love life and just in general. (But let’s save that rant for a Let’s Talk, okay?) Her relationship with Damien is something that is smelling trouble, again. I prefer her with Nick any day. I would not be mad at her if she ran back to Nick in the middle of a makeout session. I hated it when she started hanging out with Damien again and the everytime she is with him I always hope the Nick will come swooping in and talk to her. Courtney’s forbidden relationship with Brett. Now this is going to be a major dramatic aspect of book 3. Everything will blow up and in the end Courtney and Brett will be together…..or they won’t. As for Peyton…well, she doesn’t have a relationship. Unless Jackson somehow come’s back the teacher dude comes back….but Peyton needs someone her age. Hopefully Jackson will come back!

The ending…let me just say I have very conflicted feelings about Oliver getting into an accident.

So the events in this book. Savannah’s sweet 16, Courtney having a twin, Madison being a half-sister. Yeah… a lot when down in this book. So what are my predictions for the next book? Well, for Savannah her YouTube channel is going to get noticed more, Evie…well i’m not sure what will happen. Damien will lead her on but Nick will come and save the day from drama. Courtney will get Brett by the end of the day but may go through a major grade fall out. Peyton will party and party and party in order to get over Jackson. Maybe talk to her teacher a bit more but at the end of the day Jackson will come! Madison…well. She will eventually tell the sisters about this secret. They will eventually get along but it will take time. Madison may end up with Oliver….maybe? But we’ll have to wait for book 3 to see if this all happens.
