"Better than book 1!"
I must say... was dang near better than book 1... So glad this is a two book series...because I couldn't hangle another cliffhanger. This settlet thing right nicely to Stark and O's RIP relationship... Loved it! Quite smexy too...
Loved the ending...
Well worth the credit or a sale... It's pricey... but I would in fact buy this...the story was that good..
Narration, again... same as book 1 pretty good!
"Good, but not remarkable"
As Daniel and Hayley's saga continues you get more drama, added with some sweet get-aways, and unexpected moments, and you have a nice finale to this love affair. Both Daniel and Hayley have a bit of aftermath to resolve from when they were broken up, but the make up part is always nice. The love scenes are not extremely emotionally compelling, or as detailed as I would like, but I guess you could say that they were good enough. You still have a very strong best friend trio who are always there for Hayley, in the good and bad times. Daniel seems to work a lot in this one, and the time apart was kind of a bummer, but Daniel seemed to make it up to Hayley in some way, or other. In this book, you get to meet Daniel's mother Iris, who was so sweet. There is also some jealous moments on Daniel's part that he had to work through. Drama ensues when one of Hayley's past hook-ups comes to stir up trouble (which I thought was refreshing since novels always seem to explore the crazy past hook-ups of the guy's coming to haunt the couple). Hayley is still a commit-a-phobe, but there are some events that occur that have her moving forward in her HEA with Daniel. I thought the epilogue was lackluster, as it was too sketchy, moving here and there. I couldn't say that the epilogue was amazing, only good and sweet. But, I think that's a good descriptor for this romance in general, it was "good," nothing remarkable or amazing, just good. Hey, sometimes, that's good enough.
Narrators: Nelson Hobbs continued to perform for only the epilogue as it's in Daniel's POV. I do love his voice, so it was enjoyable. Aletha George continued to do well in her narration.
3.5 to 4 STARS (can't decide)
In the first book, I thought the main guy was very cliche, but I grew to understand him better in this book. His personality got much more 3 dimensional in this one.
"I BROKE 1 OF THE 10 COMMANDMENTS..... GLUTTONY"
As I happily indulged myself well into the wee small hours of the morning craving each and every chapter, I thought it was like having a box of my favorite chocolates as I kept mentally saying "oh just one more" over and over again until sadly, before too long, I'd devoured the lot. Yup, I knew it wasn't good for me.... but they were each just soooo yummy.
As Daniel and Hayley's rocky, up and down, intense love affair continues there's more heartbreak and shocks in store for them. Luckily Hayley had her two best friends to support and bring humor to her through each devastating step and they both had sub romances of their own too.
Even better than book 1. There's character growth as, through each bitter challenge, they realise they just can't survive apart, it's very romantic, touching, intense with lots of needy but mild sex scenes and had a few shocking twists but the end result is a HEA and a lovely Epilogue.
Worth a credit? Well written and narrated, a bit rushed at the end, had some flawed but loveable characters who I'll miss, the sex could've been hotter but the romance, gulp and wow, that was off the charts! And, as I reflect back over this enjoyable roller coaster two book ride, I know it was 2 credits well spent.
"love this book"
ian character drove me mad on the cheating part nut when you can get over that bit it's a brilliant book. also wish nelson hobbs had more then one chapter would have loved to hear his feelings esp as he was the more interesting then haley who was just an ordinary young working girl......
This story could have been completed in half the size of the first book Layers.
It was so slow I cringed at the excruciating length of Hayley's emotions, the angst of her feelings, when there did not appear to be any reason for her to be like this, compared to Daniel, who loved this woman so,why? who only thought of herself!!
The only like I had with this book was the readers, I congratulate them for not yawning whilst getting through the two books!
Very disappointed in this story!
