Happy Monday Readers- I love my historical romances but sometimes I need a break and I got one when reading Layers Deep.
Tristan Cross is battling emotional demons from the past. He lives in a world where trust is earned, loyalties are tested, and love is impossible. That is, until he meets Allie Green. She’s the only woman who can help him find a kidnapped friend and to top it off, she captivates him. All he has to do now is persuade her to work for Cross Enterprises, his top investigations firm.
Allie Green is a rookie cop seeking revenge and she’s willing to sell her soul to get it. With an opportunity to use Tristan Cross’s resources Allie calculates her time for payback. As vengeance boils her blood she can’t keep her mind off her new boss and Allie finds it difficult to keep her employment professional. With the mouth watering Tristan Cross distracting her, she struggles to prioritize an undercover job she’s been assigned and her hunger for revenge.
And when you’re ready to give up your life to save someone else, distractions can be fatal.
My Thoughts: I was a little hesitant to read this book as I thought it was going to be similar to Sylvia Day’s Crossfire Series. Yes, there are a couple similarities but the story line is different and I really enjoyed it. This story is about two people trying to outrun ghosts from their past but realize that maybe they will need one another to stop running from those ghost. Tristan and Allie are two people that take control of situations when needed. They are not going to stand by and let things happen they are going to make them happen. The chemistry between these too is hot and Ms. Silks does a wonderful job expressing their passion. This is a quick read that leaves you hanging on the last sentence; wishing, praying and hoping that the wait isn’t long for the next installment. I warn that you will want a cool drink while you read this story because it is sizzling hot!
