Diamond by Mz. Robinson

synopsis

Being the wife of one of the most respected and feared men in the city comes with an array of perks and Diamond enjoys them all. From designer tags, fast cars and trips to foreign lands, Diamond lives a life that most women only dream of. For Diamond, however, dreaming and wishing is not her forte but when she does, it’s a guarantee that her husband, Leon “Gator” Douglass, will make all of her dreams and wishes come true. When the good life goes sour and Gator lands himself in prison, Diamond quickly discovers how fast one can go from eating Caviar on Wednesday to Beanie Weenies on Thursday. Determined to survive on her own, and keep the empire Gator once built, Diamond assumes her rightful place as the leader of “the family.”

When friends become enemies and enemies become allies, Diamond learns loyalty could possibly be the most expensive gift her husband ever purchased and one that she may not be able to afford.

myreview

I really wanted to like this book but towards the end it lost its appeal to me. The beginning was definitely strong and I was very interested in learning about Diamond and Gator. I was particularly drawn to Gator’s story because it was a tad bit deeper than the typical drug dealer stereotype.

But, par to course with this genre, he gets arrested and the woman decides to fill in for him and keep the “business” going. And, then the book goes downhill for me. It was just too much in a short amount of pages. Overall, it was a decent read and I would read other books by Mz. Robinson (but just not this series).

DISCLAIMER: I received a complimentary copy of Diamond in exchange for an honest review.
