n all of my reviews, I say something about building characters and setting being the reason I love books. That's exactly what this book is. Honestly, the actual storyline of this book is awful. There is little plot development, which could make the book feel slow and tedious. You're not really attempting to find action throughout the book, you're focusing on the relationships between the five main characters. Oh what characters!

Tilly Bagshawe has fully gone into the lives of each one of these ch

I picked up this book after reading and enjoying Scandalous by the same author, and this one did not disappoint. Set in both London and LA, the story follows a woman named Scarlett who designs high-end jewelry while working to ensure fair trade conditions for diamond miners and the countries that are ravaged by the diamond business. There's a lot going on here, including Scarlett's interactions with a major diamond cartel owner, her relationships with her family and her best friend, as well as t ...more

When I read the back cover of what it was about I thought it would a good read, but the minute I opened the book and started reading it, it was a bore, I had to force myself to finish the book! Despite it's appealing premise dictated on the back cover it was a complete snore, definitely not worth the 11$ I paid for it, I say pass on this and pick something else, preferable something that will hopefully be a lot better to read.

I'm afraid I've picked this up, put it down, tried again, put it down again, and in the end given up on it in just pure annoyance. I think what really gets to me about Tilly Bagshawe is that she's trying to be Jilly Cooper, only she really doesn't have the panache or the good storytelling skills. Scattering around posh brandnames and frequent dropping of clothes doth not a Jilly Cooper make!

The brothers in this story had me, they're lovable rogues, but I liked them, and I cared about what happen
