Bryna feels his eyes on her.

Hot, seductive, enticing.

He’s at least ten years older than her seventeen years, and he knows exactly what he’s doing to her with that look.

Walking away would be the smart thing to do…

But she can’t. Not that first night when he takes her home and claims her body. Not when he shows up in her life again with expensive gifts to win her trust. Not e

Diamonds is one of those books that was hard for me to put down. Once I started reading, I just had to know where this story was gonna go. I love books like that. I love when a story like Bryna’s comes along and it’s so messed up, and at times such a train wreck you can’t look away. And I mean that in the best way possible.

Bryna is a 17 year old high school student, but she is mature for her age, both in looks and attitude. She’s adjusting to living with her fathers new wife and her n

"You won't trust me with your secrets, so how can I trust you with mine?"

description

K.A. Linde creates a rich self-important heroine in seventeen year old Bryna Turner. Bryna comes for vast wealth and is what I consider a “mean girl”. She is in her last year of high school, dating Hollywood’s heartthrob, Gates Hartman and is pretty much at the top of her game.

While out on the town one night she meets Jude a hot handsome stranger who she begins a steamy relationship with. He’s older and has

"You won't trust me with your secrets, so how can I trust you with mine?"

Diamonds is just one of those books that took me by surprise despite having these characters that are far from my ideal preferences; leading a rich and glamorous life, having everything at their beck and call. I'll admit that I had my reservations after reading the blurb because I wasn't sure if I wanted to read a series about a potential gold-digger, let alone a teen heroine but I swear that shiny cover pull

Kyla knows how to pull you in and leave you gasping. I have been looking forward to reading this series for months and I am definitely not disappointed.

Bryna isn't an easy character to love, but I can understand her. She is a sad, neglected girl looking for love. Unfortunately, it's in all the wrong places and it ultimately leads to trouble. The plot is completely engaging and owns you. I was torn about what I wanted for our Queen B and was so happy I could jump right into Gold when I finished.

The angst queen delivers once again with, Diamonds, a sexy, refreshingly addictive story that left my chin on the floor. Bryna is a hard character to love, yet I did it easily. Wealthy. Pretentious. Abrasive. Emotionally vulnerable yet wise beyond her years. She's far from the girl next door, yet she has a magnetism about her that I couldn't help but connect with. The trials and tribulations of her family life, her elite prep school reality, her faltering romance with an up and coming Hollywood ...more

It's pretty clear even from the tiny description why I picked this book up. I haven't had a pleasure of reading a K. A. Linde book before, and let me breakdown the reason why I'm on the fence about it I want too again or not...

In Diamonds we follow the story of Bri, seventeen year old high-school student, cheer-leading captain, with the movie star boyfriend. Gonna tell you right off the bat that Bri drove me insane for mmmmmmm, 95% of the book. She has a few minor flaws and one really big one. S

One word: HORRIBLE!

Where to start?

First of all, the heroine is a slut. Pure and simple! She is 17 years old and acting like that? Please! I understand that sex can be a coping mechanism but in that particular situation it was just her being a slut. And don't get me started on the whole "Mean Girls" thing.

"She smiled with approval at her two subjects." Subjects? Subjects????

I was just waiting/hoping that there was some screwed up reason that made her like this. It must have been, right? But, no

Oh dear..

I'm afraid this is about a 17 yr old, little rich girl, who dominates all things cheery, meets an older man who fucks her hard and buys her attention.

This is just the sort of story I avoid, as I can't stand whiney, over indulged high schoolers.

Read the fucking blurb properly next time, Janey!
