Reading a Diamonds Of The First Water novel is like visiting old family friends. The Diamonds are all vivid, engaging, passionate men and women. This is Adam’s story.
Adam is a darling of the ton. From a perfect pedigree and popular family, Adam Diamond has everything. Alice is in hiding, scared, and trusts no one. When Adam sees Alice, he knows he has to have her but also knows she could only be his mistress due to the distance between their stations.
The plot is well thought out, clever, and romantic. Both Adam and Alice are multifaceted, complex characters. There were times I got aggravated by the couple. Adam’s skewed outlook on society and Alice’s trust issues and penchant for running away had me yelling at them at times. However, all these faults made Adam and Alice approachable. Their flaws and mistakes gave an organic feel to the passionate relationship.
Adam is the third book in the Diamonds Of The First Water series. This could be read as a stand alone book, however I recommend starting with the first book as each book is about a sibling. Sydney Jane Baily has again created a eye-catching, swoon-worthy, thoughtful romance. Don’t miss this newest book in a remarkable series.
I voluntarily read and reviewed an advance copy of this book through the publisher. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
