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 Dempsey came to New York to make it in the art world but financed her love by working as a hostess in a high-end bar. There she met Derick Miller, a young man who made a lot of money with the sale of an app that he and his friends had developed. When her paintings did not sell at a showing, she was depressed. To help her feel better, Derick bought the paintings but this infuriated her. She let his money get in the way of their relationship and needs to get over it. Derick came from a poor background and made it big at a young age. Siobhan came from wealthy parents but wanted to make it on her own without any help from her parents or Derick. He fell hard for her and tells her he loves her but she doesn't answer him. She seems to want Derick on her terms. I just hope that she realizes that he needs her too. Can't wait till the second part of the story comes out! The first part ended on a cliffhanger.

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 audio, this is a quick and easy read, as the BOOKSHOTS selections are intended to be. Overall, I liked it and plan to read the rest of the story. My favorite quote: "My mom used to say we were all just diamonds in the rough. We may not be shiny and beautiful in the moment but with a little polishing we could be the most dazzling things in the room. Not to mention the toughest." Elizabeth Hayley's Diamond Trilogy includes the following "parts" as of November 2016: Part 1-Dazzling Part 2-Radiant Part 3-Exquisite

Although this is a quick read, you will fall in love with the characters. Derek is a billionaire sweetheart and Siobhan is fiesty! I absolutely loved this book. The story is well written and the main characters are great! Excited for the next one!

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. This book was fulfilling. It was mesmerizing. It was vibrant, completely enjoyable, and I could not put it down. From the very first page of this story I was hooked into everything that I was getting with Siobhan and Derick's characters, and the more I got with them, the more I needed to know what their story would bring. Told with Elizabeth Hayley's distinctive and captivating writing, Dazzling tells the story of what happens when an aspiring artist meets and starts to fall in love with a billionaire. From the moment that Siobhan and Derick meet in this story there is an instant connection between them. A connection they can't deny or fight, and soon these two find themselves feeling a whole helluva lot for one another, all while trying to figure out if they can overcome the differences between them that threaten to tear them apart. Dazzling is their story of instant attraction, and what it means for those two to fall hard and fast for one another. Through every turn of the page in this book you will be pulled in more to everything they share, and what you get with them within those pages will have you beyond enamored with all that those two share. With a heat, a connection, and a spark that never quits, Siobhan and Derick's story in Dazzling is one that bursts with a chemistry and a vibrancy that can't be beat. I have to say one of my favorite aspects of this story was getting so much with these characters in this story. This is definitely a quick read, but don't for one second think that that means you won't get so much with these characters. Elizabeth Hayley perfectly balances creating a story that's pacing is out of this world phenomenal, while also giving you so much of these characters to love, understand, and invest in. I loved getting to know and fall for Siobhan, Derick, and the possibilities of what could be between them, and I for one can't wait to get the next part of their story!! This first part in Dazzling was the most amazing beginning for them, and it has me practically dying for more because I already can't get enough of their characters and what they share together. When you read this story you will feel every bit of what these characters do, and I am telling you, you will love getting to be there through it all. Through every turn of that page you'll be consumed by it all even more, and by the end you'll be needing that next part like you need your next breath. I truly can't wait to see what the next chapter of Siobhan and Derick's story brings. I have no doubt that whatever their next chapter brings the two of them it'll be exciting, it'll be captivating, and it'll be full of the most dazzling sparks. Elizabeth Hayley blew me away once again with Dazzling, and the enticing, vibrant, and alluring world and characters they created within its pages. This is a quickly paced, fulfilling, and all-around outstanding read that will leave you loving everything you're reading and simultaneously chomping at the bit for more!

Dazzling, the first book in a new trilogy by Elizabeth Hayley, is an INCREDIBLE quick read! I usually don't like quick reads because I feel many of them lack character development and the storyline seems rushed. This is NOT the case for Dazzling. This book had me invested in these well-developed characters and hooked on the storyline from the beginning. The storyline unfolded at a fast, yet natural pace. Siobhan is a hard-working, aspiring artist working at a high-end bar called The Stone Room until she can find success with her art. She is fiercely independent and wants to make her own way in the world. Derick,a billionaire who got rich through developing an app, can use his money to help those he cares about whether they want it or not. Siobhan meets Derick at The Stone room and their connection is immediate. Although they have an undeniable instant connection, they are also two very different people. I really liked seeing where these two came from and can't wait to see where they are headed. The count down to book two is on. Can't wait to see what happens next!!
