Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I read these as individual stories and not as the box set, you can find my reviews for each addition. Each story has it's own story line but they are all tied together. And Lacey Silks knows how to weave a web to keep you on the edge of your seat. You will not want to put this series down until the end. I haven't read the Dazzled by Silver yet but hope to soon. I have started the Crossed series which is a spinoff of this one and it is great too. So if you like a little suspense and romance in your stories then this box set is for you. And don't miss others from Lacey Silks either, you will not be disappointed.
Dazzled by Silver: Lacey Silks grabs you from the first paragraph with witty banter between Kendra, Sam and Gabe. While Kendra and Sam are getting drinks from sexy bartender Gabriel on opening night for Kendra's new club, sparks begin to fly between Sam and Gabe. However both Sam and Gabe have scars from past relationships that keep them apart but yet each time they see each other after this the flirty banter continues and is oh so much fun! Kendra gets involved with some bad people which inadvertently puts Sam in danger by being her friend. Gabe to the rescue who really owns a PI firm and is Kendra's silent partner in the club. As the 3 escape trouble, Sam and Gabe are given a chance to finally have dinner and see if what they feel will be more than a one-night stand – oh, and the sex is amazing. This is a shorter book but Lacey doesn't leave anything out and keeps you engaged the entire time. Layers Deep: Yes, there is a cliff hanger but OMG, what an amazing, sexy, suspenseful, erotic ride. Allie Green sees Tristan Cross when he comes to the police in search of someone for his investigation firm and can't keep her eyes off him. When Allie had an encounter with Tristan at a bar that evening, the sparks do fly but she works to maintain a professional relationship. Tristan is doing everything he can to convince Allie to work for him – he needs her expertise to find/save someone. Allie really wants to work for Tristan so she can find/destroy someone from her past. The banter/dialogue between Tristan and Allie is witty, flirty and electrically charged. The element of suspense as Allie prepares and then goes undercover to find/rescue Tristan's friend will keep you glued to the page/screen. Really loved the chemistry between Allie and Tristan which generates incredible sex scenes … even in the boxing ring! Anxiously awaiting the next installment … need to know how the conversation ends. Layers Peeled: 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. Layers Off: Strap yourself in for an amazing finish to the Layers series. In Layers Off we get to find out Kendra's story which surprised me in so many ways. Kendra is recovering from being held as a sex slave and dealing with this trauma is bringing back nightmares from years ago, things she feels are real but doesn’t remember. Unraveling Kendra's past and how it intertwines with everyone else's stories really brings the series full circle and fills in any gaps that I may have had from the other installments. Loved the interactions with all the characters in the series and how this group has created this unique family. Once again the chemistry between Kendra and Julian is off the charts giving us the needed romance and sex right along with all the suspenseful action.

Really enjoyed dazzle! Now I can't believe I'm about to make this statement, but the sex scenes were just too drawn out. Enjoyed the story though.
Loved loved Dazzled. From the beginning it had you captivated. Absolutely loved Sam and Gave. The other ones in the series was ok. Found myself bypassing a couple pages. Loved the alpha males just the females wasn't believable. Rather read more about Laura and James. Lol.
