Book summary:

 "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."

      What a start of trilogy! I was a little bit disappointed with Layers prequel, Dazzled by Silver, but Layers Deep was everything I expected it to be.

       New job, hot boss, revenge and a lot of steamy scenes. I was so happy when I saw that first novel was about Tristan. I loved his character in Dazzled by Silver and I was hoping for more. (Thank you, Lacey!) Tristan was driven by guilt - he thinks his friend's trouble is partly his responsibility so he reaches to the Allie and asks for her help. Well, of course he likes her and of course Allie is having this sinful thought about her new boss. I promise - there are a lot of steamy scenes you will love.

      I loved them, but sometimes I was annoyed. In the beginning I was a little bit confused about Allie's motivation and I just wanted to slap her and scream at her, but be patient - this girl had a rough life. Still, there were few parts where I was so mad at her - you'd think that trained cop would know better, but no...
What Lacey Silks managed to do in this book is that she offers you an actual story - unlike the prequel where it looks like everything is about sex. Layers Deep is more romantic suspense with seriously steamy scenes than erotic romance. It doesn't mean that it lacks a typical chliches - Tristan is after all a millionaire and a lot of, lets call them obstacles in their undercover action are overcome with his money.

      A cliffhanger - smart move. After that last page you will want to pull your hair and scream out of complete frustration. Yes, Lacey did it. Damn cliffhanger ending! But she did promise that everyone will get their happy ending. We will see.

  1. I'm glad that you liked this one, Glass! It sounds like there were some really steamy things going on. ;) Awesome review!

  2. Thank you!:) It was fun book to read. I can't wait for sequel.

  3. Nice review. Sounds like a sizzling book :)

  4. Layers has a hot cover! I am unfamiliar with this series and its sad that the characters were a bit annoying for you. I hate it when that happens even though the book is good. I hate cliffhangers so maybe I'll try it out after all the books are out. Thanks for sharing Glass :)

    1. It was a first thing that got my attention - of course.:DDD
      I don't mind a cliffy, but I hate waiting for the next book.

  5. I've got this one on my shopping list. I love erotica but a big fan of romantic suspense too so definitely have me wanting to read this one ;)

  6. Oh no a cliffhanger *runs away* but wait a happy ending? At least there is some reassurance in that. Hope you enjoy the next book! Great review =)

    1. No, don't run!!! Everything will be okay.:)
      We know that everything will finish with big HEA, but still I don't like to see my favorite characters suffering.

  7. Whoa - that is some cover. Glad you (mostly) enjoyed this one!

  8. I think my memory is bad, bc I don't remember how this ties in with Dazzled by Silver. I think I need to skim it to refresh my memory. I'm glad you liked this installment more!

  9. so skip the prequel? This sounds yummy and I am gonna be sure book two is ready before I read this since you are now bald!
