If I could travel back in time, I would warn myself that this book is nothing like the first four books. I'd tell the slightly younger me to read this book as if it were a stand alone book and had nothing to do with the first four books in the series.

And that's the exact advice I've been preaching to myself since I finished reading this book.


Let me do a quick Q&A session...

Q: Was this book well written?

A: Of course. The story line w
Yes! I have been waiting for this development since Book 1! I am so freaking happy but also so sad because it's all over. I am going to miss Damian, Zoe, Gavin most of all. I really think India Lee could give us one more book in the series. Pretty please! But with a little less angst because this one was killer. And with a dual PoV - I agree that the story would have greatly benefited from insight into what a certain someone was thinking. That said, I still loved this final (please not FINAL) in ...more

**You should definitely read the six shorts that go with this novel, so you know where are all of the characters are at in their lives!

I was really anticipating this novel, and it didn't disappoint! I wanted to give it 5 stars, but i just felt that since so much of the plot line was about Damian's behavior that it would have been better if we got to see his POV as well. I liked seeing Gemma really dissect her feeling and grow up a bit, and I loved seeing most of the characters come back! Also, t

This final book of the series was hard work, but in a good way. It's a ridiculously long time since I read the previous four, back-to-back, but I soon got back into it even if I couldn't quite remember all the characters and incidents.

I really enjoyed this final installment - in that uncomfortable, gut-churning, butterfly-infested, will-they-won't-they way - but would have killed for just one more closing scene. Ah well, I guess I can't have everything...

Warning some spoilers ahead

Finally! After a year of waiting we get to read the final book of the Hidden Gem Series! Although I loved the book (because I am such a huge fan) I wish we got more of Damien and Gemma in a happy relationship...most of the book was them trying to figure out how to move past the friendship and into a relationship....and then they finally are together and they break up....besides that I loved the story!

It was well written and definitely turn out the way I wanted it to
Slight spoilers ahead!

So first off - Finally! Gosh, I feel like I've been waiting for this coupledom since book 2. While it's true we had to wait for it, I can see Gemma needed to go through the relationships she had to be ready for this one. Two problems I had. One - with so much of this being about Damian, it would've been nice to get his POV here and there. Two - I feel like I wish I could have gotten to see more of them together. We sort of hear about it through one of the magazine posts at

So this is it - the end of the Hidden Gem series. I bought Diamonds are Forever as soon as it was released but tried to stop myself from starting it, for the simple reason once I started it, i wouldn't be able to stop and then it would all be over.
There'd be no more Gemma. No more Zoe. And most importantly, no more Damien.
But all good things must come to an end, and what a perfect ending. This book shows Gemma still adjusting to a new life, a new identity, trying to separate herself from her f

I really really liked this series, but this last book just fell apart. Bee is not as interesting when she's a fashion designer instead of a pop star. I loved reading about her exploits, her trials and tribulations while dealing with her fame, and her screwy love life.

Unfortunately, this book bored me so badly that I just gave up on it. I used to have this NEED to finish any book I started, and I'm glad I gave that up because I ended up wasting my time slogging through books that made me miserabl

I really enjoyed this! It was a while between books for me, so it took a little while to get used to this story again, but once I did I was completely enthralled by Gemma and Damian. I just adore them. I still had plenty of love for Tyler but I actually like how his storyline wrapped up. As usual the blog posts added a lot of interest to the story. It made you feel like you're following a real celebrity couple and reading about them in the tabloids. There was plenty of angst in this book, as it ...more

The journey with Gemma from book 1 is long and winding. I loved spending it with her and the other characters. I have looked forward to few series as much as this one. I'll be looking for future works from India Lee in hopes of seeing these characters again. ...more

Absolutely loved this book. My favourite out of the whole series and I really did not want this book to end. I loved that Damien had a different dimension to him and that Gemma was challenged as a character. Really sad that this is the last in the series.

Love the cheesy story lines, just wish someone edited these books before publishing them. A little sloppy.

Kind of anticlimatic

But love and relationships mostly, growing up vs/and growing apart vs/and growing up together
