The Diamond Ring by Primula Bond - The Unbreakable Trilogy #3 - 3 Stars

The Diamond Ring by Primula Bond
Three Best of the Trilogy Stars
Blurb - Sex. Love. Betrayal. And a very dramatic climax… The Unbreakable Trilogy reached its unforgettable conclusion. A must-read for fans of erotic romance.
“You don’t know how beautiful you are, Serena. That’s the danger.”
Engaged to be married, life should be blissful for Gustav and Serena. It should be a time of happiness; a time to plan their wedding and their future together.
But the ghosts of Gustav’s past have returned to haunt him, and one in particular casts a dangerous shadow over their relationship.
Margot, Gustav’s bitter and twisted ex-wife, is determined to destroy everything that Gustav holds dear. Starting with Serena…
From the glamour of Paris to the exotic wilds of Morocco, The Diamond Ring will take you on a sensual, sexy journey like no other – with a finale you won’t forget.
The Diamond Ring is the third and final book in the Unbreakable Trilogy; I was given a review copy by the publisher in exchange for an honest review so here goes...
The Diamond Ring is by far the best of the books in the trilogy however it is still a very weird series of books.
This book starts very much like the previous two books with Serena & Gustav travelling the world, working and having copious amounts of sex.
This book gets back to Serena’s voyeuristic roots and I found this much more titivating that the blatant in your face what’s what of kinky sex.
Now here’s where this book gets good....
Psycho Margot is BRILLIANT!!!  The woman is literally mad as a box of frogs and I loved her.
I loved the drama and intrigue that Margot caused and all of the subsequent chaos that she created added another level to this book.
This book definitely feels like the Serena show because we rarely see or hear from Gustav and to be honest I felt like I lost the connection to them and their relationship.
I don’t feel like there was any real resolution in this book, its builds and builds and then kind of fizzles out.
Margot is eventually caught but not in a dramatic crescendo, they stumble upon her in a hospital.
This book had massive potential but for me it just didn’t meet my hopeful expectations.
I have to say I found the Riad scenes very confusing, was it a brothel or what??? Why were the girls all wearing the ankle bracelets?
And also where the hell was Tomas was he arrested and if not why the hell not!!!
Sorry but again this book just didn’t work for me I found myself having to force myself to pick it up and read it and then fight harder to  not skip pages in the boring bits!!! I gave it 3 stars it was better than book 2 but unfortunately it just didn’t do it for me.
