REVIEW: Welcome back to the “Diamond Universe” as we encounter another Heir of the Black Diamonds. This is Justice Black’s story, the only son of Jordan and Sage Black and heir to Black Diamond Holdings, the legacy started by his Grandfather, Justin, and expanded by his father. Justice is now more mature, and ready to accept his legacy. His soulmate is none other than Jasmine Ross, the “little sexy dancer” introduced in the second book of The Heirs Series, DIAMOND.

In this story, we discover that Jasmine has moved to Los Angeles, and she is hosting her own TV show, via Whitlock Studios. If you are a follower of D. Camille’s stories, then I don’t have to explain the significance of that collaboration. Not only is Jasmine and Justice’s romantic journey highlighted in this book, but also the reason Jasmine is a host of her own television show. You can count on the characters portrayed in D Camille’s stories to reflect the author’s social consciousness.
The Black Diamonds, The Uncut Diamonds, The Heirs, and the Negus of The Black Land Series) are all unapologetically devoted to eradicating atrocities waged against Black people. In this story the Heirs, Six, Skye, Xavier, Diamond, Alex, Kessha, Jade, Lilac, and of course, Justice help Jasmine in her efforts to locate a missing African American teen who mysteriously disappears. I will leave that right there. When you read the story, you will discover the cause behind TaSheena Adams’ disappearance. Trust me; it’s off the chain! Jasmine is dedicated to this cause because of her brother’s tragic fate in DIAMOND (Book #2). We also get to see a more mature Justice, and witness how focused, protective, and deadly this brother has become.

Of the four previous Heirs’ books, this one is my favorite. There is romance, drama, intrigue, and two of the most outrageous villains that D Camille has created to date. No spoilers, but these two women, Helen Bagley and her grandmother, Abigail Harrison epitomize the racist and predatory practices waged against Blacks. However, they are no match for the Heirs who handle their business and “Do it for the culture”. It’s an eye-opener to put it mildly. Another reason that I like this story is that all the family is present for a heartwarming HEA.

JUSTICE is a great read, and I recommend it. If you are looking for a contemporary romance loaded with just the right amounts of sexy, drama, humorous moments, intrigue, relevant issues that affect the African American community, murder and mayhem, JUSTICE is the book for you.  As a matter of fact, if you are not familiar with the ingenious stories written by D Camille, do yourself a favor, and start with the first book, BLACK MAGIC. You can thank me later. In the mean time, I’ll be eagerly waiting for the next book of this series set for 2020. I know it will be worth the wait.
