Cheating is my hard limit.

The only thing I truly fear.

My heart was shattered once before, and I swore it would never happen again. This time I chose the safe guy who wouldn’t destroy me. Turns out…they don’t exist.

So when the sexiest Brit I’ve ever met dances right into my life, I offer him a one night stand. No strings attached. My perfect rebound, with zero chance of bet

5 stars!

After the shocking way Emeralds ended, and seeing Trihn in the other books, I was anxious to read Platinum. I wasn’t sure how things would go for her, but this book more than exceeded my expectations. Let me give you just a bit of a warning here- once you start this book, make sure you have a clear calendar because you won't be able to stop reading! I read this one cover to cover and lost lots of sleep one night because I couldn’t put it down!

After the heartbreak of Trihn’s first love,

In the prior book of this series, Emeralds, Trihn fled the toxic situation between herself, Preston and her sister, Lydia to a college across the country in Las Vegas. Now among the characters of the first book of this series, she has a girl group and has settled into a relationship with a guy named Neal.

I swear, Linde knows how to put me on the edge and give me heart palpations like no one else. I swear the anxiety she gives me isn’t normal, but I get so addicted to her stories I have to read them. In true Linde fashion, Platinum is full of angst and will have you dying to turn the page, so be prepared to stay up to finish it!

We first met Trinh in Emeralds and my heart immediately broke for her. You don’t have to read Emeralds first, but I highly recommend it so you can get the backstory and un

This is hands down not only the best book of this series but the best book K.A. has ever written. I can hear all the Jack lovers gasping is shock now, but it's TRUE!!

We left off in Emeralds with Trihn being heartbroken and ready to start her new life in Vegas. Since then she's a play it safe kind of girl. Her boyfriend is a douche but she puts up with it because he's "safe".

Enter Damon. *sigh*

Can I start off with a declaration of love to Mrs. Linde? Okay. So I’m head over heels in love with this woman. Her words. The emotion. The way she causes you to feel strung out. Waiting in anticipation, sick to your stomach... just waiting for the other shoe to drop.

Platinum is the continuation of the All That Glitters Series that focuses on Trihn’s story (Emeralds should be read first). Trust. It’s not something that Trihn gives easily, if at all. She’s been burned once... and now twice. But

Holy FREAKING WOW! K.A. Linde's writing NEVER fails me. Never. With Platinum it was no exception.

What I loved most about Platinum was not only was it just as angsty as only K.A. Writes, but it was so different as well. The angst is different with Trihn and Damon. My stomach was in knots and my heart was in my throat for pretty much the entire book. I'm an #AngstLover so of course her writing is one of my favorites.

If you're desperate for Trihn to get her happily ever after, this is the book for you.

If you love a perfect Brit, Damon is the man for you.

I'm British myself and he still made me swoon!!

Platinum, the latest story in the incredible All That Glitters saga by K.A. Linde, danced its way into my heart where the music played a mesmerizing melody, never skipping a beat, as this beautiful and brilliant book was in perfect synchronization with my soul. My pulse pounded like a drum as this sensational story seduced me, drawing me in from the very first fabulous page and never letting go until the enticing end.

I really had to step away and process before I could write a review for Platinum, something I rarely do. It's usually immediately clear what I thought as soon as I close the last page and this book needed some reflection.

Here are some things I know for sure... Platinum is a delicious combination of quintessential KA Linde angst, characters that I REALLY loved, and some super hot steamy scenes. As far as the All That Glitters series goes, Platinum is one of the most memorable books in t

I was super stoked to get the opportunity to review this book because I have mad love for the author and her angsty way of writing. I had not read all of the books in the series, so I reached out and asked if I could read as a stand alone. I was encouraged to read Emeralds before reading Platinum, and I am so glad I did, because I don't think I would have gotten the root of the story. That being said, I think that I did miss some of the nuisances of

This book was actually a really sweet romance. Trinh has had enough with failing relationships. She refused to allow her heart to become involved with anymore men in her life. I'm sure you already know how that idea turned out.

This book was well written although the story was just a little too sweet for my taste. To be honest, this felt like a young adult read with plenty of sexy times.

Really enjoying this series. Trinhity's (Trinh) story fits right in with the young college girls experiencing first loves, first heartbreaks, and finding out who they are that this series has been all about.
I love Trinh's character in that although she is well-off and has had a privileged life, she wants to do things on her own merit and hard work. While vulnerable in ways of the heart, she is confident in her intelligence and what she has accomplished and can accomplish. She speaks up for herse

So we finally get the conclusion to Trihn's story. I'm normally used to the lead female being strong and secure but Trihn is the complete opposite. She has a lot of trust and insecurity issues due to her past relationships. During a girls night she meets Damon and everything changes. I loved the way Damon showed and proved he wasn't like the other guys. The way he showed his love, support and devotion was absolutely amazing. He's my number two after Brady Maxwell (For The Record S

Received from the author for a honest review. I have this really bad habit that when I see a book to be reviewed by an author I like, I sign up right away. So when one of my favorite author, K A Linde had a book to review, I jumped on it. Now when the book is the third in a series, I feel obligated to read the first two books before I review this one. Reading All that Glitter's (Diamond & Gold) first helped and I'm glad I read them but it isn't necessary. Where those were Bryna story, this i ...more

After Emeralds I could not wait for Trihn’s story and this did not disappoint. After all she had been through she had written off love and didn’t ever think she could trust again.
But as a certain British, swoony man, entered her life she had a choice to make. Would she take that blind leap of faith and trust that her heart was in the right hands or would she let her past control her future? I found Trihn to be so relatable. I mean I’ve been there. It’s not fun, it’s not pretty. The growth that h

We have another great romance with Trihn and Damon. It was nice seeing Trihn grow from the person she was to the person she became. We finally get to see her stand up to Neal because let's face it he was not for her. After trying to move on from that disaster, she meets Damon. Things become pretty intense for them, and since everything is still a little bit fresh in her mind with what happened with her ex-boyfriend, she has some major trust issues to overcome with Damon.

Platinum was my first book by K.A. Linde, and I have graciously been granted an ARC of this title through Goodreads.

Platinum begins with Trihn being with her asshole boyfriend Neal, who know of her friends like. You learn early on that things are not going to end well and Trihn is once again hurt by a guy she thought she could trust. So what’s the best way to get over heartbreak? To find a seriously hot guy to have a sexy rebound with, and that’s exactly what she does with the sexy as hell British DJ, Damon. But Damon refuses to be Trihn’s rebound guy

This book could be read as a stand-alone. Reading Emeralds could give you more background, though.

In this book, we start with Trihn settled into a relationship with Neal, a guy who is not what Trihn's friends envisioned for her, and just when he returns from a trip their relationship ends which cause Trihn, pressed by her friends, to look for the rebound guy which turns out to be a very attractive British guy named Damon wh

For the past two days I have lived in the world that Kyla has created for us in the All the Glitters series. I have loved it! I absolutely LOVE that we have a prologue that is almost 3 hours long and then the actually stories that are almost 6 hours long. Perfection!

I liked this book but I really wanted to love it. Damon and Trihnity's relationship felt very rushed. I wanted to get that off the charts chemistry and connection but unfortunately I didn't. I really liked the premise of the story. I liked both H and h but I just wanted more. I 100% understood her insecurities and jealousy with her relationships.

I was thankful to have received an advanced copy of Platinum. I had previously read some books of Ms.Linde with 3-4 star frequency, but had not yet read one within this series. Was thankful that for the most part this can be read as a standalone.

This was my first book by K A Linde and I wondered how it would read being book 4 in the series. It stated it could be read as a standalone and that was indeed the case. Kyla's style of writing is lovely. I fell straight into the book. Damon was a fantastically written character. The side story of Trihn's relationship with her sister grabbed my attention. All in all it was an enjoyable book.

Where it fell down for me was firstly how many times Trihn questioned Damon. I get she had trust issues bu
