Dazzling is part one of the Diamond Trilogy written by writing duo Elizabeth Hayley This adult contemporary romance is written under James Patterson s BOOKSHOTS imprint fast reads for fast times I found this part of a story to be short, sexy, and predictable The authors incorporated an art element which I enjoyed, and I liked the down to earth and modest demeanor of the billionaire hero Unfortunately, Dazzling offers no closure as this part ends during a climactic scene At 144 pages 3 hours via [...]
Reviewed for herding cats burning soup amzn 2fODlHkIT S A CLIFFHANGER rage, yall, rage I m feeling rather pissy right now over Dazzling This was my first time reading this writing duo and likely my last I m so disappointed, yall The premise started out well enough rich hero falls for poor and reluctant heroine and sets out to win her over.The hero was cute, sweet, earnest.The problem s The heroine She s overly sensitive and reactive about things especially his having money Constantly pushing him [...]
Better than expected I was expecting a Fifty Shades ripoff but it was actually pretty good.
2.5 stars Didn t connect with the characters and I was bored I ve got the other two books so I ll read them but only because it pains me to get rid of a book without trying it You never know, it might get better
Elizabeth Hayley never fails to deliver a story that is well written, wholly consuming, and packing the perfect blend of heat, banter, and dynamic characters that are truly unforgettable It is no secret that I am a huge fan of their books, and getting a new story, a new world, and a new set of characters from them is something I really look forward to There isn t a book from them that I haven t loved with all that I have, and Dazzling, the first book in their new Diamond Trilogy was no different [...]
Siobhan and Derick are complete opposites And I kind of had completely opposite reactions to them Derick had me swooning hard for him in the beginningd he had me laughing on top of that, what could a girl want But there were a couple of What the heck were you thinking Derick moments, when it came to some of the things he said to Siobhan He was a bit of a clueless male at times, but it kind of made him all the endearing.I understood where Siobhan was coming from, especially there at the end, bu [...]
I like James Patterson s idea of the BookShot s books but these BookShot s Flames books are not for me I m not a big romance reader and these books are just too simple for me I m sure they are good books for someone who enjoys them than I do.
I received this book in exchange for my honest review I thoroughly enjoyed this book It had a fast passed storyline that kept the rhythm of the plot moving forward Siobhan was determined to make her way in the world on her own however, Derick had other plans.
2.5No estuvo tan mal De hecho esperaba un 50 Sombras de Grey pero la protagonista no es tan tonta como Anastasia jaja En serio, lo le en una tarde y me sac del bloqueo Creo.
Well, in all honesty, I was expecting a bit from this book For one, the cover was really beautiful.For two, the premise seemed interesting.But my hopes got squashed like a bug This book, honestly, wasn t thaaaaat spectacular It felt like yet another one of those cliched romances with the rich guy poor girl trope Plus, to me, the whole love aspect of it wasn t that great Sure, the hero seems like a really sweet guy and I didn t get the bit about calling him the playboy he most certainly didn t s [...]
Elizabeth Hayley is a newer author for me, but I am already a huge fan The chemistry between D and S practically drags you into the story and I fell hard for D He is everything a book boyfriend should be I enjoyed getting brought through this first part of D and S s meet cute, their budding relationships, and the struggles that come with it and am aching for the next installment Can t wait to find out what happens next.
Grabbed this after realizing that i haven t been able to finish reading a Book after nine days So far this is a shortest thing i have read in 2017 I didn t enjoy it that much since i am not a fan of short stories.
There were definitely some hot moments in this one But to leave me hanging I m glad I have book 2 sitting here, ready to go What is Derick going to do to get Siobhan to come to her senses I must find out
The ending was a little cheesy predictable but it was a good, quick and easy read Im looking forward to reading the other two in the trilogy.

First time reading anything by this author Really liked this book This was a short love story Not all is as it seems.
So for my ramblings about this book I think this was a cute and quick read but oh so predictable Also when the underwear scene was happening, let s just say I wasn t hot and bothered like say what I didn t realize this was erotic so I m sitting there thinking oh how cute these characters and damn how did it go to humping the bo bo so quick This book left a cliff hanger so going to have to check out part two I liked the story overall I liked how the main character was different and stood firm w [...]

Siobhan is an artist who takes a hostess job at an upscale bar Derick is a billionaire aren t they all who patronizes the bar Siobhan literally falls down seriously she HAS to be clumsy in front of him But wait He catches her and is instantly interested This was predictable and boring Luckily, this was short, so I didn t waste a lot of time on it or money Thanks to the library It s also part of a trilogy cliffhanger ahead No HFN much less a HEA And guess what I really don t care and won t be rea [...]
It was interesting to see how the chemistry of Siobhan and Derick drew them together despite the stages of life they were at.They each had issues to overcome before they could try to be together and feel stable about being in a relationship.They try to but it is hard to get past something that has played a huge part in your life and survival.Can they survive together Time will tell.
I though the main characters had great chemistry but that the heroine Siobhan was a little too uppity and sensitive Derick was always going out of his way to show he loved her and she rebuffed him than once for dumb reasons I hope in the sequel which I plan to read that she realizes he s the Real Deal.
I would call this book unpredictable Because no one could have predict, that this book can be so unexcited OMG it was sooo boooring, so SAFE, so about nothing It was missing drama and even a plot Book about nothing I would never think that dating a billionaire could be so dull.
Stupid This is why I don t read romances lol
OMG Part 2 here I come
I really enjoyed this book and where she it taking it Surviving starving artist meets rich man Lots of sex Enjoyable read 1st book of a 3 book trilogy It s worth a read
Terribly boring and shallow I am sorry for my library for that book taking up precious shelf space.
Predictable romance in an underdeveloped smuttily charged way Hey, it s guilty pleasure reading in its truest form
He s an idiot, she s an idiot Not my kind of thing and very predictable Would have liked it better if it hadn t gone the predictable route SMH Another cookie cutter story and characters.
can t wait for of siohban and derrick
Sandra review A very good book to read poor Derrick he need to learn how not get a female mad Right know they need some space and time spart
