The Broke Princess

Diamond Reed is a spoiled-rotten, scandalous, and materialistic female that only comprehends dollar signs. As a young child, Diamond was daddy’s little girl and mama’s pain; then her mother decided to leave, forcing her father full responsibility to care for her.

As a teenager, Diamond turned thirteen in age but acted more like a twenty-one year old adult. She began doing everything she wanted and never suffered consequences. During high school, Diamond took the sex game to ex

Mistress of Manipulation (3.5 Stars)

The Diamond Syndicate chronicles the life of Diamond Reed and her transformation from daddy's little girl into a mistress of manipulation. Diamond’s father taught her the rules of the game at an early age and Diamond was a very quick learner. As a young child Diamond was so proficient at getting what she wanted that her own mother would suffer beatings at the hands of her father if Diamond’s demands weren’t met. By the time Diamond reached adulthood her good l

Pied Piper

It's just something about Diamond Reed. She's always had no trouble manipulating men and getting what she wants, starting with her father.

In her 30's with a body that still turns heads, Diamond decides to change her prey of choice, seeking the young dealers in the neighborhood - her son's friends. At 16 a

A dreadful creation.

From the characters to the story line to the writing to the editing -- this was just BAD!

Some words that come to mind when I think about The Diamond Syndicate are: Unrealistic, Unlikely, Unfathomable, Degrading, Pointless, Wasteful.

I've never read such a bad book. There was nothing likable about the novel at all. I cannot even think of anything about the book that would have made me like it more had it been changed. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone to read. It was bad fr

Diamond was truly a piece a work. The agony Diamond put her son Dante through was unreal. Anyone studying to be a social worker or deal with anybody with mental illness I recommend this read. Personally I couldn't stand Diamond, but I sympathize with her, no parent should make a child feel like they can have what ever they like, Diamond father create a beast. Diamond suffer from psychosis and was very delusional. In the end Dante truly loved his mother. Thanks Erica for showing your readers that ...more

All her life Diamond was catered to. She always got her way. She learned at a toung age that she desered the best of eerything and man with no money isn't many. She used those skils to become a conniving feelingless woman. When karma finnaly catches uo to her, she'll jepardize anybody's life. Even her own son.

This book had a lot of surpries. It made me say wow alot. I really enjoyed it though. I never knew a could read about such a heartless woman.

Diamond Syndicate is a fast-paced and exciting book! Diamond is a spoiled brat from the very first page and it only gets worse the older she gets. This book by Erica Hilton keeps you interested from the very beginning. Because when Diamond was a very young girl her father never told her "NO" she does not take rejection well and will get her way by any means necessary. Diamond Syndicate is a rough but good read. If you are into street drama, this is the book for you!
