Product Description

USA Today and Amazon Best-Selling Author, Andrea Smith, introduces readers to the G-Man Series with Book 1, Diamond Girl!

What does a 35 year-old soccer mom do once she's sent her only child off to college? Well, for Samantha Dennison, it is something totally out of character!

Sit back and watch as empty nester Samantha goes from frumpy to fabulous when she secretly transforms into a popular dancer at a gentleman’s club. But her second life is filled with lusty danger when biker Slate enters the picture! A thrilling erotic romance with plenty of twists and turns!

No spoilers here, but something BIG is brewing in Indy; and it ain't about race cars!

'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.

HASH(0x9cc65bd0) out of 5 stars No Diamond Read Here Dec 2 2014
By abbysbooknookie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
** spoiler alert ** Although I tend to have issues in books where spouses cheat on their spouses (deserved or not), the synopsis of the Diamond Girl interested me enough to start reading. It also didn't hurt that it was loosely based on actual events. That in itself intrigued me.

However, it's a rare thing, but I honestly disliked all the main characters in this book. Suffice to say that Jack, Sammie's husband is a jerk. He'd have to be for Sammie to not feel any guilt about getting involved with Slate. The history of Jack basically raping Sammie when she was 16 was pretty disgusting. Enough said about the husband.

Then there's Sammie. Ugh! From what family history I was able to piece together, it seemed like she was raised in a family where the father was definitely the head of the household and she and her mother were always to follow his lead. Based on that, maybe, it's understandable why she was the way she was, but it doesn't mean that I had to like it.

First, Sammie doesn't even recognize that she was raped. She did say No, but according to her:

I wasn't even certain he was aware of what had transpired. I couldn't blame him for something he'd done while under the influence.

How clueless is this girl. She just shrugged it off as if it wasn't a big deal. There was almost something robotic in the way she handled what happened. No real feelings. Anyway, as a result, Sammie got pregnant and was forced to marry Jack. 19 years later, it's pretty clear that Sammie is not in a happy marriage and at the point.

Even through her marriage, it seemed that she went through the motions. She literally gave her life up to Jack where the expectation was to make sure he had his needs met at all times. If things weren't going well or Jack was unhappy, it was Sammie's role to fix it. The sad thing is that she always seemed to accept the blame even when it was undeserved.

When she does try to break out her rut, it's initially so that she could get back in shape so that Jack would be attracted to her again instead of supposedly banging his personal assistant (which Sammie, by the way, had an almost "whatever" kind of reaction).

Somehow this getting back in shape somehow leads her to being a pole dancer. Honestly, this was a suspension of disbelief. Why would a woman from a fairly well-off background suddenly want to be a pole dancer going by the stage name of Diamond. That came out of nowhere. I could understand if there was mention in her past history of Sammie wanting to rebel, wanting to do something so drastic, but it just wasn't evident. Instead it seemed like she just fell into it.

But I guess if you're going from being a housewife to a pole dancer, embrace the wildness, embrace the freedom of showing off your body. Feel something. But to Sammie, it seemed all rote, with one of the perks being how much money you can make.

The other perk was "being owned" by Slate, a biker who she meets at the club where she worked as a dancer. Slate knows her as Sunny and doesn't have a clue about who she really is. The whole process of how that happened didn't make much sense, but in the end, what it meant to a certain extent is that Slate had dominion over Sammie. When he wanted sex, he'd text her and she'd be accommodating. Not that she minded.

With her husband never have given her an orgasm during their 19 years of marriage, she was more than happy to let Slate call the shots because it was a way for her to "feel" plus the mind-blowing sex didn't hurt either. However, even if with sex that is off the charts, Sammie is again letting a man dictate a part of her life.

What's even more ridiculous? Sammie starts to develop feelings for Slate. Huh? She even tells him that she loves him, which he rejects. Considering that his texts to her were basically for her to come over so that they can f*ck, how can real love come from that? Considering that he dictated everything from what she's supposed to wear to how she's suppose to interact with her husband and even that he would be the one to decide when it's over, I'd be crushing all over him, too.

There is one point when she recognizes that Slate can never offer her anything but sex and decides to cut contact with him. Yet, once he finds her, it doesn't take much for her to fall back in his arms.

Speaking of Slate, who apparently is an undercover FBI agent, I didn't care for him at all. Treating Sammie as his personal sex toy certainly didn't endear him to me, even if she was a willing participant.

Reading about his frequent blow jobs with another pole dancer, Garnet, after Sammie cut all contact, wasn't that appealing either. Granted there were no promises of commitment on either side at the time, but the whole thing just felt dirty and not in a good way.

Then of course, there's also the story involving outlaw bikers, illegal pharmaceutical drugs, fake car insurance claims, with her husband in the midst of all that. There's also Slate aka Eric, who was undercover first as Slate, the outlaw biker. Then he also went undercover to befriend Sammie's daughter to get info on her father's illegal activities.

After Sammie met Erik posing as Sammie's "friend", they picked things up just like that. She even forgave him regarding Garnet, because apparently, it was just a release for him and nothing to do with her. Plus she was also just an informant. That may be true, but damn, what woman wants to hear that?

In the end, arrests are made, secrets come out, admissions of love are revealed, a baby is on the way and marriage follows soon after. Happily ever after ensues, but honestly, by that time, I was just glad the book was over. It's just too hard to enjoy a book where the heroine seemed too easily manipulated by the men in her life and the men were basically just jerks.

HASH(0x9cc65e1c) out of 5 stars 5 stars! Diamond Girl (stand alone). Suspenseful CR; intrigue, villains, personal growth, second chances, hot sex & an alpha. April 14 2013
By Avid Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
At first glance this sounded like a story about a bored Cougar housewife who embarks on a secret life and then has an affair with a younger man. It really isn't that at all - at least not for me.

Hero: "Slate"/age TBD - mid to late 20's/biker/dark hair/blue eyes
Heroine: Samantha Dennison, aka Sammie, aka Diamond Girl, aka Sunny/35 years/married/housewife-heir to a pharmaceutical company-part-time pole dancer/dark blond hair/green eyes

Story is told mostly from Sammie's POV, but there are several chapters of Slate's POV.

Sammie found herself pregnant at age sixteen the night her high school's varsity football player, Jack drunkenly and quite forcefully took her virginity. Rather conveniently for Jack her father, a wealthy man and founder/CEO of a pharmaceutical company insisted they marry and set her husband up on a successful career within his company. They enjoyed a financially comfortable, albeit loveless marriage while raising their daughter Lindsey. The book opens up with Lindsey having left home to attend University. Sammie, feeling lonely and not liking her status as "Stepford wife" joins a gym and gets in shape and ends up attending pole dancing classes. Next she gets a part-time job as a pole dancer at an exclusive gentleman's club. Shortly thereafter she meets Slate...

"Any time, Diamond," he replied, giving me a sexy smile. He turned going back to his group. I watched as he sauntered away, totally mesmerized by his powerful presence. That was the only way that I could describe it. There was a sense of power he exuded; and it was sexy; damn sexy."

Sammie, to best describe her I need to clarify that I am of the opinion that the better the hero the more difficult it is for the heroine to measure up. I would describe her as a woman who has meekly been controlled and ruled by the men in her life, first by her father and later by her pig of a husband who in addition has been mentally abusive, unloving and neglectful all the 19 years of their marriage. She has never experienced an orgasm with her husband (unclear on whether she ever had one at all). All this said, she does grow a backbone along the way and there is a spark in her and she has a sense of humor about herself that is endearing:

"I was contemplating dropping out [pole dancing lessons]; I could barely move a muscle. It had certainly burst my `I'm in great shape' bubble."

Slate has so many qualities I like in my alpha male heroes. For starters her has murderously good looks; tall, dark and handsome with a striking and sexy physique and presence. We quickly learn that he has a very dominant, bossy and enigmatic personality. And he is emotionally unavailable to Sammie:

"Did we make love today, Slate?"
"We f~ k~ d baby. That is what you and I do. We f~ k. And today we did it damn well."

Slate has secrets and here it gets tricky for me to review without giving away spoilers: Just like Sammie Slate goes through a transformation in the story. And though I like the bossy domineering heroes, I did like the progressive Slate better, he was more mature, still bossy, but more on the protective side and he was much better in touch with his feelings. He did also change his looks just a little as well as his clothing which quite did it for me:

"So are we good then?" I raised my face up to his and we kissed.
"Maybe," I said, starting to feel better.
"Only maybe?" He cocked an eyebrow at me, his eyes full of amusement. "How can I change that `maybe' into a `definitely'?"

As Slate and Sammie embarks on a sexual affair, we are privy to some scorching sex scenes:

"I need to know that you will be a good girl and not scream. Do you promise?"
"I promise," I said gritting my teeth, arching my back.
I heard him laugh quietly as he moved his face back to mine. His mouth was on mine; I could taste the..."

Alas, their budding romance quickly hits a bumpy road with villains, a mystery and dark forces set out to break them apart and even hurt them. Some of the secrets you may guess along the way, but others you may not. For me it was very much a suspenseful romance with an unraveling mystery, as well as a story about second chances. I will say no more as I want you to enjoy the story for yourself!

It has been announced that this will be a series, but my understanding is that each book will have its own H/h.

Andrea Smith's humorous writing style clicks with me and I found myself chuckling on many occasions. Diamond Girl was a suspenseful read. I very much enjoyed Slate's and Sammie's journey!

HASH(0x9cc65de0) out of 5 stars Badass Biker Romance May 31 2013
By Becs G - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
OK, word of warning. This novel does contain extra-marital cheating - the husband is a real idiot but it's still cheating and I know a lot of you like to be forewarned.

So, we have Sammie suddenly suffering from empty nest syndrome after her daughter goes off to college and deciding to spread her wings a little. She gets fit, gets back into shape and learns to pole-dance but her husband wouldn't notice if she paraded around naked on her hands singing the national anthem so, feeling rather disillusioned, Sammie starts a secret life as a pole-dancer at a club called Jewel using the name Diamond. Her husband is often away from home and it's easy to keep her sultry alter-ego secret from him.

The club she works at is frequented by a Biker Gang, the notorious Outlaw MC, and Diamond manages to catch the eye of Slate - he of the intense, piercing blue eyes. Their attraction is incendiary and hard to resist and Diamond tries for a while but ultimately she gives into the sizzling intense chemistry between them and starts a no strings affair.

Sammie's a great heroine who fell pregnant at sixteen and was forced into marriage by her parents. I love the way she tried hard to find herself after dedicating her life to her husband and daughter for years. She's beautiful with a big heart but her rat bastard husband has never truly loved her and they are both making each other miserable. She sets out on a journey of self-discovery and finds that there's a world of possibility out there just waiting for her to take those first few steps. She's lying to everyone though - she's lying to her husband and she lies to Slate about her true identity.

Slate was everything you'd expect a badass biker hero to be - he's tough, bossy, assertive and most definitely a bit of a chauvinist. He wants Sammie for sex, he expects her to be at his beck and call and he doesn't want to get close to her in any way but his growing feelings will make it harder for him to stick to his own rules as Sammie slowly starts to get under his skin.

There's a whole heck of a lot of plot twists in this one and nothing is what it seems and nearly everyone is lying or has something to hide. Sammie's rat bastard husband starts to show his true colours as they both start to grow ever further apart and there's some shocks in store for Sammie and Slate. I loved that I never knew what was coming next and Andrea Smith does a good job of keeping up the intrigue and it's very erotic with some s***-hot sex scenes. I really liked that this heroine was a little older - she's in her thirties. It makes a refreshing change. I didn't like the way Sammie capitulated completely to Slate's demands once they established that they were `seeing' each other and allowed herself to be controlled by yet another man and give up the one thing she loved doing just because he told her to. I also don't think that bikers come off too well in this one - Yes, I know that they're not polishing their halos but I do love me a badass biker hero!!

This is an enjoyable and sexy romance with a fairly unexpected plot line.

3.5 stars

HASH(0x9cc672f4) out of 5 stars It's ok. Aug. 17 2015
By Tiffany R. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I liked the idea of Samantha making something of herself, now that her daughter is in college; that's what drew me to this book. I did NOT like Samantha though, she went from being controlled by one man, straight to another. The Slate at the beginning of the story was a COMPLETELY different person at the end, but it was better, even if it didin't quite make sense. Samantha was just very weak, and I hoped the story would be more about her becoming her own person...I wanted to see her grow, not just jump into a relationship with someone else controlling. The main story was interesting, but again I was hoping this book was more of Samantha discovering herself :)

Ok, you got a house wife(Stepford wife) bored and needs a hobby after her daughter goes off to college. She takes up pole dancing for exercising. Then starts working for a strip club her code name Diamond?? Now, you have a bad boy "Slate"(MC)who is interested in Diamond for no string attach sex. Of course feelings get involve into mess of a life of Diamond aka Sunny but(real name Sammy)??. Her husband is an abusive controlling jerk, then she meets and falls for another controlling jerk??? There is twist and turns and finally an end. One good thing about this book is that it did end, no cliffhanger. It just finishes what it started and ended with an HEA. There were so many parts I thought were stupid as hell but I will say I couldn't stop reading it.
