Publisher Description

A New York Times best-selling author and award-winning journalist with publishing credits in Essence and Vibe, Aliya S.

In Diamond Life, Alex Maxwell's rapper husband Birdie sees his album go multiplatinum-but life in the spotlight might be too much for his marriage to withstand. "Readers will enjoy guessing which real-life celebrity dramas might match their fictional counterparts. A solid page-turner." -Publishers Weekly

    " I really enjoyed this book. It was a satisfying sequel to Platinum. It did leave somethings open which hints that there may be another sequel but this book gave a lot of updates to the characters so that I didn't feel cheated. I would recommend this book. "

    " Good sequel to Platinum. My only concern is that I didn't get to read about Beth as much in this book. She was almost front and center in the last one. I would not be surprised if this series continues. "
