In this hidden gemstone of a book, "DiAmonds N' The Rough" is a collection of short stories served straight out the bottle with no chaser. A school-age girl is forced to take a human life to save her own. A Gangster girl so deep rooted in the streets of Chicago that she must leave the cold-blooded City to survive. A self-taught businesswoman hustles herself away from Gangbanging and into the boardroom negotiating multimillion-dollar deals. A happily married woman risks it all when she succumbs to a secret rendezvous with a handsome stranger she met on the subway train in New York City. Interconnected, all these stories are somehow linked.
In this gritty, RISE TO POWER page turner, you will read about a rare but sexy DiAmond, the roughest DiAmond and Sapphire Blues and see how the beauty and splendor of all Diamonds goes well beyond the surface.

Disguised in a hard, unfeminine exterior their flaws are exposed right away. Each story is bold, hard to read, and at times, scandalous.

Anonymous once said, "PRESSURE MAKES DIAMONDS." Well, let's see.

Through the lenses of brokenness and pain you will witness firsthand how DiAmond and Big Tiny expertly navigates their way around Gang banging, SEX, LIES and MURDER proving time and time again that what don't kill you will make you stronger.
DiAmonds N' The Rough is a BOSS move. The characters are undeveloped. The dialogue... pushy, classy, ratchet; often written in very poor taste. The storylines beg for an absolute superhero that never comes, and the overall depth and synopsis of each story holds so much poverty, heartache and pain that it lacks the very charisma or literary showmanship required to land itself on any best sellers list. And that's just why this book is sooo good.
