Review: Embrace by S. Layne


Liam Parker crash landed into Laurie’s life when everything else was crumbling all around her. Her marriage and career were in pieces and her mind was left spinning.
But one touch from Liam, and Laurie could forget everything else around her.
She thought she had it all figured out.
As Laurie lost herself in Liam’s warm caresses and his commanding blue eyes, her husband refused to go quietly into the night. While Laurie fought to move on, it was James who was working his way back into her life, fighting for the marriage they had once held dear.
Forced to make choices she never imagined having to make, Laurie finally found herself on firm footing, knowing which way she was going to turn.
But then life threw her another curveball. And when she once again began picking up the pieces, learning how to survive and rebuild after everything exploded, there was only one man still there, one man who remained by her side, showing her that sometimes life isn’t about learning how to survive…
It’s about learning how to thrive.

Must read the first book Entice prior to reading Embrace

Finally! It’s here! I was so excited to see this was available on NetGalley, I read the first book Entice and I was certainly ready to read the second book to see what the outcome was going to be.
This story was full of surprises for me, I kind of had it in my head the way I though this book would go and boy was I wrong. I like when that happens! I like that the story went a different way than what I expected.

I thought this was a wonderful story about how when you lose trust in a marriage that make everything else crumble as well. For me trust is numero uno in a marriage and I believe without it you have nothing. This story will show you how one mistake can ruin your life, how it can make you feel defeated and guilty and leave you feeling lost. It will show you that even when things are at their worst and you think it will never work, things can work and true love will always prevail. It left me asking myself, could I forgive and move on? What would I do? I love when books make me question what I would do in a similar situation. The characters were strong and very relatable characters who were flawed but weren’t afraid to admit they were flawed.

I really enjoyed this book and am so happy I got a chance to see how things ended.

Review: Entice by S. Layne

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.
Review by Jennifer 

Good googly this book starts off HOT! It doesn’t waste any time getting to the goods that’s for sure and I enjoyed every second of it!
Laurie is a strong woman who believed she had found her HEA with her long time boyfriend turned husband James. However when she stumbles across a shocking secret that he has been keeping it has her questioning everything about her marriage, the man she thought she knew and herself.
What I liked about this book was that it dealt with real feelings. The feelings at which a person would feel learning the secret that Laurie learns. It is heart wrenching at times and you will really feel her sadness and loss for what she thought was her HEA.
Liam is exactly what Laurie needs at this time in her life. He is handsome, confident , not afraid to ask for what he wants and he wants Laurie . This makes her feel feelings she hasn’t felt in a long time and it confuses her. BUT what he offers and what she gets end up being two different things and Liam is hiding some secrets of his own.
What will happen when Laurie finds this out? Will she be able to make a go of it with James or end up taking what Liam has to offer? You’ll have to read the book to find out.



S. Layne currently lives in Minnesota with her husband and four children. When she’s not conquering mountains of laundry and fighting a war against dust bunnies and cracker crumbs, you can find her playing with her children, curled up on the couch with a good book, or on the boat with her family enjoying Minnesota’s beautiful, yet too short, summer.
She lives off her daily pot of coffee, can only write with a bowlful of Skittles nearby, and has been in love with romance novels since before she could drive herself to the library.
