When the most difficult decision of Laurie Baker’s life needed to be made, she took off for a weekend alone to weigh her pros and cons and consider all her options.
What she didn’t expect was to run face first into one more complication her life didn’t need.
Distracting, sexy, and British, Liam Parker offered Laurie exactly what she needed when she was desperate for attention.
One night of pleasure.
She wanted it.
She craved it.
She took it.
And when the sunlight dawned and the lusty haze of one night of passion disappeared and reality revealed itself…
Laurie returned home knowing that everything she had once believed, everything she had once loved and desired, was about to be tossed upside down and shaken in a way she could never imagine.
This review is going to be difficult to write. Not because I didn't like the book, because I LOVED the book, but because I feel like I need to review this AND the sequel at the same time. I read both in one night--it was just TOO FREAKING ADDICTING to stop. There's just so much to say regarding the book, and so many things that can almost be given away if you're not careful. But I feel like I don't really have much of a choice to give *some* of it away to explain how the book made me feel.
Laurie found out that her husband, James, cheated on her with her best friend. She's heartbroken, and with good reason. He wants to have her back, but she's reluctant and needs her space to figure out what she wants in the end. So, she goes away for the weekend for business, hoping to gain perspective. While she's there, she runs into Liam...literally. The attraction between the two is immediate, and their desires override the ability to think everything through.
Not everything is as it seems once morning arrives, and by the end of the weekend, Laurie finds out that she hasn't seen the last of Liam. On top of that discovery, she comes home to find James still fighting for her. Let me tell you... tears... just so many tears at that scene, I can't even right now thinking about it. As the story progresses with Laurie trying to figure out what's next for herself, your heart is dragged through every range of emotion known to man, and by the end? You're so torn up, you don't even know where to begin again.
Entice drew me in, kept me there, and held onto my emotions even after it was over. The story was powerful--so powerful that I still can't stop thinking about it. In fact, I want to read it all over again. S. Layne has created a gripping romance for the ages. Like I mentioned before, I had to read Embrace right after Entice--it was that good. Get your hands on this series NOW.
