Goodreads blurb:

Jessica Cahill is having one perfect night. In six weeks she’ll walk down the aisle and marry her long-time boyfriend. But for tonight, she’s celebrating hard at her bachelorette party. It’s the time of her life until… she takes things too far. 

Brent Harrison is having the worst night of his life. Across town, seven rare diamonds are tucked safely in the vault at his brother’s mansion. These diamonds are special. They hold significance. They belong to the infamous Abbott Tiara. The task should be easy, he should have them by the morning. That’s when everything goes wrong. That’s when he runs into her. 

One tiara 

Seven diamonds 

Sometimes beautiful things come at a cost… 


Let me start off by saying that this book is the second in the Flawless series and I did not read the first book. It can be read as a standalone, however I’m so curious about some of the backstory that I added the first book to my TBR. 

Jessie and Brent have undeniable chemistry within the first few pages of the book. She is pretty, fun and smart, out with her friends at her own bachelorette party when she meets Brent. He is dark, mysterious and sexy and the last thing he wants on the night the two meet is to begin a relationship, even though his attraction to Jessie is unquestionable.

Right from the start, tensions are high. Rare and extremely valuable diamonds are missing, people are getting seriously hurt, and family loyalties are questioned. Both Brent and Jessie have complicated family issues that seem to be linked to each other. Seeing each other is just a bad idea all around, especially since Jessie is engaged to another man, Carl. 

I’m hesitant to say too much about this book as there are quite a few twists that I could spoil. These weren’t jaw dropping twists like that of I Let You Go, but this book isn’t a typical thriller where the reader expects shocking turns of events. Instead, it reminded me more of Abduction where the romance is more at the forefront yet the suspense is a nice background.

If you’re a fan of romance books, yet like suspenseful novels as well, check this book out. It’s a fun read but there is definitely enough action that it’s not entirely about the love story. The romance and suspense in this book compliment each other well, much as Jessie and Brent compliment each other.

Overall rating: 3.5/5

Huge thanks to the author, Emily Duvall for my copy in exchange for an honest review.
