Layla’s pattern is long established -she vows, she craves, she gives in. But like any good addict, she always swears this is the last time. Layla tries , her therapist has given her some “management tools” to get her through the hard times. But that too has become part of her ritual. Layla had lost her fiance John two weeks before her wedding. She held him as he died as he was murdered and she was also attacked. But Layla suffered with guilt and felt it was her fault. When the craving got to bad she went to an underground sex club that John had taken her to the first time she went there and had meaningless ex so she didn’t have to feel. She had been doing this for the last year and a half. Layla made a set of rules that she made for her protection. Then she meets Michael and he isn’t the type to follow rules so he is dangerous to Layla he is a Homicide Detective but he can give Layla what she needs. Layla and Michael do feel a connection- more than usual for Layla as she usually just has one night stands. Michael wants Layla more than he has ever wanted anyone else. Michael goes right through Layla’s walls, defenses, and rules that she had made to protect herself.
I did enjoy reading this book. It did confuse me for awhile it did drag for me at times. I felt so very bad for Layla and what she had went through. I loved Layla and Michael together. I liked the plots and there was hot sex scenes in this book. I enjoyed the twists in this story. I felt like I was there with Layla. I loved seeing Layla heal and get herself back together with Michael help. I loved the characters and the twists and ins and outs of this book and I recommend this.
