DAZZLING (Diamond Trilogy #1) by Elizabeth Hayley
Published; February 1st 2018, SoCoRo Publishing


She’s a starving artist and he’s a billionaire playboy….

Siobhan came to New York with a purpose: She wants to become a successful artist. To pay her bills in the meantime, she’s the hostess at The Stone Room, a bar for the beautiful and the billionaires. She’s fine with being on her own–until tech billionaire Derick takes her breath away.

Full disclosure time! It’s not that I disliked this short story. It was that I felt at times, it was a little predictable. Rich man saves poor girl from falling over, fall into mad love, fall out over money and him trying to be controlling. That’s where this story ends but I am sure the next 2 instalments will all be about him winning her back. All been done before.

That’s the ‘bad’ part of the review. Good points about it, it is actually quite enjoyable. I certainly found myself wanting to know more about this couple and their relationship. I actually feel they could have made this into a much longer story, the characters were very likeable and there is a hint at a much deeper personality for them both which, with more pages, could have added a lot more to the story. I know there are more parts but even the part I read felt very rushed.

Despite all that, the next 2 parts will be added to my TBR – I am invested in discovering the happy ever after for Siobhan and Derrick!!

Fans of 50 Shades will enjoy this book I feel, there are lots of similarities. Anyone looking for a good quick romance read will probably enjoy this too.
