If they don't work together, trusting and sharing information, it may be too late.
And history may repeat itself.

My Thoughts: After really thoroughly enjoying the first book in this series, Layers Deep, I knew I HAD to read the second book. Especially since the first one left me hanging with a couple little minor details. It wasn't as good as the first, but I did like it a lot. We start out at the part where the story left off, like exactly there. I was expecting the cliffhanger to be dragged out a teeny bit, you know, build some suspense before some sort of grand theatrical romantic something or other. Instead, the cliffhanger is nothing. Nothing to be worried about at all. I mean, all was revealed, Allie and Tristan are like, BAM! Hello romance again! Not that I'm complaining, because you know they won't be able to stay apart, but still, gimme SOMETHING to sit on the edge of my seat for, right? There's a continuation of the suspense, which did keep me on the edge of my seat. And there's a continuation of the intensity of Allie and Tristan's relationship that never failed to be swoony. The culmination of everything up to the end was well done, and left me smiling. Layers Peeled was a nice conclusion to Allie and Tristan's story. The last book in the series, Layers Off, is told from a different character's POV. I'm definitely going to read it, since Lacey Silks writes such great stories, but I was kinda sad to see that this was it for them. But! I'm glad I started to read this series because I have definitely enjoyed the ride, and it was quite a ride. My Rating: Very Good

Suspenseful, romantic, sexy, sultry series ... We pick up right where Layers Deep ended … Allie and Tristan are in his office both with big news to reveal. Lacey Silks keeps up the action and suspense in this installment while at the same time letting Tristan and Allie work toward/find a softer side, the need to build a family. I enjoyed the balance between their careers and personal life along with the great sexual chemistry and steamy love scenes. Of course, they will face new challenges as people from their past resurface testing my resolve as a reader to not throw my Kindle! It was also wonderful spending time with Gabe, Sam. Julian, Kendra and Emma. Love how this series pulls you in and keeps you embedded to the very end.

Ok, I literally dropped what I was reading once I figured out this book had been released. I mean after the first book's major cliffy I had to figure out what was going on. This book was enjoyable to me and was a quick read. I liked that it truly gave us an ending to Tristan and Allie's story and I was happy with the ending. There are some parts of this story which were annoying. Allie taking chances when she is pregnant was beyond real. Tristan's method of handling Wright were obviously not effective. Emma and her annoying baby names. Now despite all these annoyances, Tristan remains a dream throughout this story. I was worried about Kendra's involvement in this story but luckily it was of no significance. Further the steamy scenes were even better in this book. The kitchen with the chocolate ice cream and the coat closet were both memorable scenes. So overall, even though the story and timeline fly a bit quickly and some finer points are overlooked, I enjoyed this story. Apparently the next book will be told from Kendra's perspective and will fill in gaps and may even reveal some imperfections in the Cross family. Honestly I am not sure if I will even want to read this as I don't want anything to ruin my HEA thoughts for Allie and Tristan.

Layers Peeled, Bring Your Own Fan Ok you want hot, you want sexy, and you want a baby? Well that what you get in this second book of the Layers series and believe me it delivers on everything. Taking up exactly from where Layers Deep left off we are once again thrown into the world of Tristan and Allie, one of my favorite couples are here once more. Picked the book up and couldn't put it down, read it through in one sitting and wished for more. The characters are well written and I can't wait to find out more about them in future books loved Emma again but all the people became friends and family. I received a free copy for an honest review

I received a copy of this book as an ARC for my honest review… I really enjoyed the sequel to the Layers series.  Book #2 was terrific.  Always keeping us guessing and surprising the reader with fantastic twists.  Plus, the hot scenes with Tristan and Allie are too hot to handle.  I can't wait for the final part of the trilogy!  Great work as always Lacey!!  It's a non-stop read!

My rating: 3.5 of 5 ¿¿ Her mouth still open with the news she is fired from Cross Enterprises, Allie, former cop and lover of owner of the investigation company, as well as her boss, Tristan, sees her dreamed up future disappear into mist. This did not bode well for her own piece of what should have been big news, and she is about to beeline it out of his office when he blocks her way and demands to set some things straight. And straight they get.....but no less complicated. Their renewed mutual assurances and amended working relationship goes a long way to settle the waters. But when Allie's biggest fear becomes real once again and demands to be dealt with, all feelings of contentment and domestic bliss fly out the window to make room for the familiar pull of panic and paranoia. Once again Tristan uses his vast resources to ensure, this time permanently, that no harm can come to their new and loving home. Lulled into complacency, will it leave Allie exposed to danger, or is it really gone for good this time . ***** Another blistering hot instalment of the Layers Trilogy! This time with a very HEA and without the cliffhanger......and yet....there is a third book yet to come. One that is supposed to retrace all the way back to the very beginning, and will show every little secret still until-revealed, exposed. Because despite the fact that there is a HEA in this book, there are questions left. Questions in particular around Tristan and his ongoing concern with Kendra, an old girlfriend who turned to drugs and self-destruction after her broke up with her. She is very much involved with his entire family clan and although clean now, after being rescued from a white slavery auction in the first book, by Allie.  There are dynamics working within the family around Kendra that are very unclear as of yet. Tristan hasn't offered any explanations and Allie hasn't demanded any, feeling secure enough in Tristan's apparent devotion to her. Although throughout this book, she has her moments of insecurity around just that issue. As mentioned the sex is hot, as it was in book one. Hot and frequent, and the chemistry between Allie and Tristan is definitely a tangible thing. The romance was almost overwhelming in its abundance. Tristan was being a perfect guy......saying everything right, doing everything right, treating Allie like a queen. A tad too perfect.  Although we don't miss out on action once again in Layers Peeled, especially at the beginning, the story is simply a continuation of the same line followed in the previous book, except a little stretched out. I can't help but feel that the entirety of these two installments could have been better served as one complete book. But then, I haven't read the third part yet...... Layers Peeled was well-written, albeit not quite as engaging and smooth as Layers Deep was. It simply wasn't cohesive enough on its own. I will most definitely keep my eyes open for Layers Off, the final book in The Layers Trilogy!! ¿A seductive and sinister account of outrunning your past.¿ **ARC provided by NetGalley and MyLit Publishing in return for an honest review.**
