New life binds them,
Past ghosts haunt her,
Fresh secrets distract him,
...and history repeats itself.
Allie, a rookie cop hired and desired by a private investigator, is about to knock the wind out of Tristan with the biggest news of her life... ... right after the announcement that he fired her sinks in.
Tristan, the owner of Cross Enterprises, has a few surprises for Allie as well. And she won’t see them coming.
While the couple tries to deal with their predicament and growing romance, ghosts from Allie's past haunt her, slowly calculating the timing of their return.
With new assignments distracting Tristan, fate has stacked a threat against them. Can Allie and Tristan peel away their protective layers for long enough to see the danger brewing at their doorstep? If they don't work together, trusting and sharing information, it may be too late.
After really thoroughly enjoying the first book in this series, Layers Deep (check out that review here), 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.
