Parker is on his own for the first time since he and Matt got together.  Matt has been kidnapped and Parker is doing whatever he can to find him and save him. The odds are against him. For one, they are in a foreign country with very little help from the Embassy, and two, Parkerís one hope is a Sierra Leone street gang lead by a sadistic bastard who asks a very high price of Parker in exchange for his help.  The position the gang leader puts Parker in brings up bad memories from his past and he has to fight inner demons as well as the outer ones in hopes of finding Matt in time and alive.

This series gets better and better.  Diamonds in the Rough keeps the intensity going from the previous book and kept me on the edge of my seat.  The glimpse into Parker's past was rough and sad, but it explained why he joined the Marines.  I felt for him and the fact he had to deal with these memories on top of Matt being missing.  Matt and Parker definitely showed how much they care for each other and that they are willing to sacrifice anything for the other to be safe.  Diamond in the Rough is a great read, but I strongly suggest reading the prequel first in order to get full enjoyment from this installment.
