What, you may ask, is inside the 182-page memoir featuring 44 of the duo's original poems? You do not need The Bachelorette spoilers to answer that.

The mushy gushiness is out of control, even for a couple who met on a reality show and has made social media love-fests a daily ritual at this point.

Fans will point to yet another example of unrequited affection. Haters will say this proves their thirst for publicity and that they're trying too hard.

Whichever camp you're in, here's the lowdown on Diamonds and Hearts ...

Despite all the online chatter, Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried are not throwing in the towel just yet ... if they were ever even close to doing so.

Des' Twitter feed is basically a live streaming look at a couple who certainly appears to be happy, in love and touching each other as much as possible.

A far cry from rumors that it's already over or that they're cracking under the pressure of going public after their unusual courtship on The Bachelorette.

Desiree posted photos of herself and Chris playing volleyball over the weekend, Chris shirtless and putting together furniture, Chris' poetry on the iPad, etc.

She also mentioned treating themselves to massages. Safe to say that if this duo is going through hard times, they are masking it awfully aggressively.

Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried of The Bachelorette really want us to believe everything is fine between them. Blissful, in fact. But is that really the case?

From celebrity gossip reports that it's already over, to cryptic Tweets and Des' brother meeting up with her ex (more on that shortly), it's been a strange week.

Desiree Hartsock, for her part, Tweeted earlier this week, "It's not about looking into each others eyes but looking out in the same direction. - Ice T"

Ever since the show ended, some have felt that she's been defending her relationship with Chris Siegfried, and is simply trying too hard with stuff like this.

Reading too much into it? Probably. But this has been a trend.

The Bachelorette's Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried are over already ... according to a celebrity gossip tabloid. One with questionable reliability.

Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried Over?

According to In Touch, the honeymoon is over for Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried, who aren't even married, of course. In fact, they just got engaged.

Less than two weeks after the show’s finale aired, Des is finding herself isolated in Seattle, where she just relocated to, as tensions begin rising.

The whole world knows Siegfried wasn’t The Bachelorette beauty's first choice. Her own brother said she obviously settled for Chris, nice as he is.

Many expressed doubts that they would make it to the altar for this reason.

Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried have quelled the breakup rumors - at least for now - with another cute date night chronicled on social media.

The Bachelorette champs attended the Seattle Seahawks preseason game in matching shirts, and Chris wrote a sweet caption with this pic:

“Love this girl! First Seahawks game together and we are looking forward to many more for years to come! Go Hawks! @hartsdesire4 #Seattle”

On her own Instagram, new Seattle resident Desiree Hartsock tweeted “New city. New team. @chrisrsiegfried Go hawks! Thanks @petecarroll.”

Yes, that is Seattle coach Pete Carroll with the lovebirds.

Just two weeks after The Bachelorette ended, Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried are already on the rocks and on the verge of a split, a new report indicates.

In fairness, the evidence of this is questionable at best.

Witnesses who saw them out and about over the weekend reported the discord, the lack of conversation, and the fact that they "don't look content."

Another source says that they were "knee deep in a serious conversation" and that there "appeared to be problems" between them already.

So, take it with a grain of salt. Or a boulder.

Still, some people won't be surprised by such reports, and will theorize that it's the beginning of the end for Desiree Hartsock and her second choice.

Even her brother Nate said she wanted to get engaged really badly heading into the ABC reality show and she obviously "settled" for Chris Siegfried.

Chris Siegfried, this year's winner of The Bachelorette and Desiree Hartsock's everlasting love, is publishing a book of his poetry, he revealed on Twitter.

The book is called Diamonds + Hearts: A Poetic Memoir.

While we admire Chris Siegfried for getting the girl and putting it all on the line, we're not sure about his "prose." It seems better suited for, say, The Bachelorette:

"I step out of that limo / You, standing there so beautiful in that dress / I lost my breath for that moment / Then thought, getting down on one knee would be best."

Right? So sweet in that setting ... and that's about it.

It's unclear who is publishing this, but Siegfield notes in his tweet to "stay tuned" for more info. In the meantime, here's one he co-wrote with Desiree Hartsock:

Desiree Hartsock's brother Nate is at it again, offering candid assessments of her love life. This time, he says his sis "settled" for fiance Chris Siegfried.

Nate Hartsock famously ruffled feathers last year when Desiree appeared on The Bachelor, bluntly taking his sibling and suitor Sean Lowe to task.

Now he's turned his sights on Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried - who he admittedly likes, but was not her first choice by any stretch of the imagination.

"Desiree went on the show because she wanted to get married so badly and she wanted the family and to have kids," Nate told Life & Style magazine.

"Obviously Chris wasn’t her first choice. I think it’s obvious she settled for him."

The Bachelorette stars Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried have been (publicly) engaged all of a week, and fans still aren't totally sold on them as a couple.

The future Mrs. Siegfried is now a Seattle resident.

She wrote, along with pics of a going-away party: "On the road again! ;) @ChrisRSiegfried  #newchapter #roadtrips #mylove #goodbyeCali #helloSeattle."

Chris Harrison isn't being a hater. Just realistic.

When The Bachelorette star Desiree Hartsock accepted Chris Siegfried's proposal Monday on the season finale, the pair began envisioning wedding bells.

The show's host isn't sure they will be heard.

“I mean, let's be honest. What are the odds?" Harrison said of the pair's prospects. "Most relationships don't make it down the aisle. They just don't."

“We've been on a very good run lately with Ashley [Hebert] and J.P. [Rosenbaum] and I'm fully convinced Sean [Lowe] and Catherine [Giudici] will."

“But married? I don't know. The odds are no, but you never know.”
