I received an ARC copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
I loved how well Lacey Silks writes a story and builds her characters. She does such a fantastic job of giving you some background, without getting into to much detail to where you get turned of from what’s going on. Also the steamy scenes she writes, wow those are HOT!
Allie Green has been trying to find away to get rid of a man that has ruined both her and her mother’s lives. Ever since then, Allie has been doing what she can to keep her mother safe, and become the best cop she could be. She’s been trying to find a way to destroy the man who ruined their lives, and things start to fall into place when Tristan Cross walks into her life.
Tristan has offered her a job, and a promise that the one person who has endangered her mother’s safety for years will be taken care of. The only catch, she has to go under cover on a dangerous mission in a sex-trafficking sting. Of course she accepts the job, not only to ensure the safety of her mother, but she also has this undeniable need to be close to Cross. There is so much chemistry between them; you can almost feel it yourself.
While undercover, Allie does things she never thought she’d have to do, and while trying to do her job, she is seriously injured. While recovering, she gets some life changing news and isn’t sure how the one person she cares for most is going to take it. Before she gets a chance to tell them, she is thrown a curve ball.
This book ends with a cliffhanger and I can’t wait to see what happens next in Layers Peeled! I absolutely loved this book and would definitely recommend this to my friends. I will be looking forward to more books by Lacey Silks in the future.
