Diamond Girl (aka Samantha, Sammie, Sunny, Diamond?!?) – Andrea Smith

Diamond Girl (G-Man Series) – Andrea Smith

Book #1 – G-Man Series
This “Limited” edition contains bonus chapters and sneak peaks at the end for a limited time only!
What happens when a 35 year-old soccer mom from Indianapolis, Indiana sends her only child off to college and suddenly discovers that she has no identify of her own?

That’s exactly what happened to Samantha (Sammie) Dennison. Her marriage was loveless from the start; her ‘mannequin’ husband has his own agenda which has never included her, and she feels lonely, ignored and downright frumpy.

Her best friend tells her to get a life, and that’s exactly what Sammie does, starting with a Kickboxing/Pilates class to get into shape, and then continuing her regiment by signing up for pole-dance lessons. Sammie graduates at the top of her class, and ultimately ends up with a secret career as a pole dancer at a Gentleman’s Club in Indy called ‘Jewels.’

Known only by her dancer name, “Diamond,” she is well on her way to finally carving out a secret life and identity all of her own that brings excitement and mystery to her otherwise mundane existence. The thrill of the dance and sexuality she discovers within herself is a potent mixture, but it’s all about the dance with Sammie.

That is, until bad-boy biker Slate enters the picture. He is the ultimate ‘alpha’ male and quickly draws the attention of the dancers – including Sammie. Slate is a ‘prospect’ for the notorious Outlaw Motorcycle Club, but he is also inexplicably drawn to “Diamond.” Sammie is totally out of her league with Slate and the dangerous people he associates with in Indianapolis during the summer of 2012.

No spoilers here, but something BIG is brewing in Indy; and it ain’t about race cars either.

‘Diamond Girl’ will keep the reader on the edge of their seat from beginning to end; this book has it all: passion, erotica, romance, danger and possibly more . . . much more.

Note: This book is based loosely on actual events that occurred in Indianapolis, Indiana in the summer of 2012 involving certain members of the Outlaws Motorcycle Club after a two-year investigation conducted by various federal agencies. The names have been changed to protect the parties. Other events depicted in this book are purely fictional for entertainment purposes.
This book is intended for adult audiences. Mature Content.

I’m currently in the midst of Love Plus One. I actually bought the series, because I liked the sound of Love Plus One, and being a person who requires elements of order when I read, I thought I should pick this up first. I’m rather glad that I did.

***Spoilers***
Diamond Girl, tells the story of Samantha, Sammy, Sunny or Diamond, readers choice. No, Seriously!? I was like what the fuck? Her horrible marriage and the man she comes to love. All the while stripping it away at some joint called Jewel and getting accidentally wrapped up in her husbands world as he plots to become the next, not so cool Scarface.

I honestly didn’t think that I was going to like this book. The writing style is not my cup of tea to say the least. In fact, it was so quickly written and so many arcs happening that I had to wonder if Andrea Smith took a breath while she wrote the story. This is my ONLY complaint. But for me it’s pretty significant. Not enough that it stopped me from putting the book down and deleting from both my mind and from my Kindle, but enough that I just felt like I was being thrown up on. You know that all at once feeling. This would have been a great story to plot out amongst 2 books. I would actually have liked more interaction between Diamond and Slate and then later on Sammie and Slate. I felt like we were being given two separate lives so to have that played out a little more would have been great.

I rated this 5/5 over on goodreads, because forgiving some of it’s quick sex scenes and the dialogue that seemed contradictory of the characters, I just liked it. I really do. There’s something about it, that I thought, huh!? This ain’t half bad, certainly no worse than some of the things that I’ve read in the past.
