★★★ ½! Layers Peeled, book 2 (3). CEO & rookie police officer continue on their risky mission while embarking on a committed relationship!

“When had his definition of sleep changed to fuck?”

Tristan and Allie’s story starts in book 1. Books in the Layers Trilogy are most enjoyed when read in order:
Book 0.5: Dazzled By Silver
Book 1: Layers Deep
Book 2: Layers Peeled
Book 3: Layers Off

In Layers Deep (book 1) followed rookie police officer Allie Green and Cross Enterprises’CEO Tristan Cross...more

★★★ 3 stars!

Layers Peeled is the second part of the Layers Trilogy and the sequel to Layers Deep by Lacey Silks. Since I quite enjoyed reading the first part of the series and because it ended on a huge cliffhanger; I was very much looking forward to starting this book. I was hoping the story would continue to develop in a similar fashion as its prequel but unfortunately that wasn't the case.

This second part of the series picks up right where the first one ended...(view spoiler)...more
Three disappointing "what happened to the main character?" stars...

(((Be warned, there is a fair amount of cursing in this review)))

Before you get the impression that I hated it all, let me assure you that the book certainly had its redeeming qualities:
There were some good action scenes similar to the level of book one...
I certainly got caught up in the suspense on more than one occasion...
There were some warm & fuzzy family moments...
Tristan Cross is still dreamy...
Allie's friend Laura mana...more

J *I did it all for the nookie.The book nookie*

And yet another series suffers from the sophomore slump...

Why do characters have to do a complete 180 in subsequent books???

WARNING: May contain spoilers if you have not read Layers Deep.

Layers Peeled picks up where Layers Deep ended. Allie is now pregnant but hasn't told Tristan. We had the cliffhanger ending of Allie "getting fired". Turns out Allie wasn't fired afterall she was just re-assigned to a new department that she and her BFF Laura will be handling--taking d...more

3.5 Mixed Feelings Stars!

The continuing story of Allie and Tristan. Do not continue reading if you haven't read Layers Deep yet as this may contain spoilers. Actually, it WILL contain spoilers for Layers Deep but not for Layers Peeled.

The ending of Layers Deep, we are left with Tristan "firing" Allie. Well, not really, but I won't spoil this story with those details. We know Allie is pregnant but has yet to tell Tristan. Things are up in the air for them. Will they stay a couple? How will he re...more

"He still had many layers of scars on his heart: ones that needed to be peeled off before he could admit whether his emotions soared beyond lust and desire."

Tristan Cross <3

"He was my family now - he was my everything."

Allie Green <3

"'I love your kick-ass moves when you flip my brother on his back.'
'What else?'
'I love your hair, your eyes, your tits, and your ass.'
I closed my eyes, savoring the touch, and whispered, 'What else?'
'I love you.'

3 Thank Goodness for Tristan Stars

I'm confused. Did I just read the same series? Because this was nothing like book one for me. Now I understand that Allie may have had (view spoiler), but it was more like she either underwent a personality change or a lobotomy. Maybe both?

Every. Single. Decision. She. Made.

She went from a kick-ass, smart-mouthed heroine to someone going on 16. The things she'd say or do was not something I'd expect from someone in their 20s.

Layers Peeled was not as exciting for me as Layers Deep. There were aspects that I like and some that I didn't prefer or confused me. Overall though the story is still entertaining and the story of Tristan and Allie is worth reading.

The plot of Layers Peeled picks right up where book one left off and leaves nothing hanging in the balance. I loved the way the book started up until about 30%. Tristan and Allie...more
I got an ARC....EEEK! I could not read this fast enough. I was nose to my kindle all day, turning pages furiously. I don't want to give any spoilers but lets just say this book does NOT disappoint us Tristan Cross lovers at all. I am glad Allie and Tristan got their HEA finally and it didn't go at all like I had expected after the cliffhanger of Layers Deep. I must say I am now a little nervous for Book 3 which will be from Kendra's POV, I can't really see myself liking her despite how I know I...more
Ok, ok, ok... I cannot believe how fast this book got in my hands nnd neither how fast I read it. Maybe because it was that good and I want to know it all. If you haven't read Layers Deep, this review will totally spoiler you.

The story continues like the second right after the last finished, as I wished in my last review. The whole thing about you-are-fired was totally a bullshit so she could have another position. She told him that she is pregnant and tada he was not upset. That was a plus one,...more
I got this amazing book as an ARC on NetGallery and so happy I got it. As I was reading it and giving feed back on edits I have to say Lacey is a great lady and fellow Canadian which makes it even better.

My thought about this series : a must read! Hot steamy, lovely, romantic, suspense, cops, gun and actions...

This book was one of my mostly anticipated book, because I really enjoyed the first. And the first ended with a major cliffhanger!! so I can't thank you enough for the relieve of the frustration.
So the story begun where it was left of. Right with you're fired and also the fact she was pregnant.
But m...more

LAYERS PEELED is the second book in the Layers Trilogy that is not to be missed. Picking right up from LAYERS DEEP, LAYERS PEELED takes you through more twists and turns with lots of suspense, passionate sex, pregnancy hormones and a quick wedding near the end.

Tristan's brows narrowed in a playful frown as he glided toward me and took me by my hips. "I love a strong woman who speaks her mind."
"What else do you love about me?" I lifted my arms around his neck, feeling his perfect naked
Ok, I literally dropped what I was reading once I figured out this book had been released. I mean after the first book's major cliffy I had to figure out what was going on. This book was enjoyable to me and was a quick read. I liked that it truly gave us an ending to Tristan and Allie's story and I was happy with the ending.

There are some parts of this story which were annoying. Allie taking chances when she is pregnant was beyond real. Tristan's method of handling Wright were obviously not eff...more

Layers peeled is hilarious and very hot - but the narrator is a little annoying at times. Also, it was not very hard to understand the heavy foreshadowing. Still a good read, though :)

This and all my other reviews are originally posted on my blog (un)Conventional Bookviews
So, I just finished the second book of the Layers trilogy today and I immediately got entranced in this book. Tristan deserves to be arrogant in this book and every installment before and after because he is so very good at what he does; and he does it all oh so well as it is written between the front and back covers of Layers Peeled. On the other hand, Little Miss Trouble better known as, Allie, is into all sorts of shenanigans. At multiple turns, Allie leaped before she looked on so many occas...more
Loved it!

Layers Peeled picked up right where the cliffhanger ended in Layers Deep.

Slowly the layers are starting to peel back and Allie and Tristan eventually end up with their HEA, but not before they are able to peel back a few of those layers along the way.

Allie arrives at Cross Enterprises with a small wrapped package as her way of letting Tristan know that she is expecting with her child. With the exception of Emma (Tristan's sister) no one else knows the news, as Emma overheard it in the...more
The second book in the Layers Trilogy picks up immediately where the first book, Layers Deep, leaves off. The book comes to a great ending. I don't want to give too much away but there is no cliffhanger ending, like the first book. The characters do get their HEA.

The first books ends with Tristan firing Allie. But you find out why immediately. Put the pitchforks down, it's o.k. Allie also clues Tristan into her little "surprise". The book continues with their journey together. There is little to...more
Allie and Tristan's story continues... with Allie's news that upped their relationship more... and a ghost of Allie's past that is still haunting her.

I would consider this a light read... non-irritating lead female character, a hot and sexy alpha male. A sweet romance with a little twist and a lot of sex scenes. Though some scenes are just repetitive, and the plot a wee bit predictable. All in all, it was alright... Written on Allie's POV.
This book is as great as the first book and follows the growing passionate relationship of Allie and Tristan. Tristan is still as hot as ever and Allie can't believe what Tristan sees in her and at times questions why he is with her, she has several insecurities. Allie is now working for Tristan's company and he will do what it takes to protect Allie and his family and friends, however when Allies past comes back to haunt her can Tristan keep her safe and when she is going undercover as a bad as...more
Well, didn't love this one. Tristan is hot enough to get 3 stars, but barely. I had a real hard time finishing, even with the spurts of action and suspense. Allie was reckless and stupid repeatedly (I have children--pregnancy hormones did not make me an idiot). When I am reading a series, I expect the characters, their chemistry and their stories to continue to develop along with the story. I get so frustrated when a story is split into a series just for the sake of making more books. This would...more
I downloaded this as soon as I finished books 0.5 and 1, both finished on cliffhangers forcing me to find out what happens next.
Bk 1 finishes with Tristan firing Allie and no explanation so I had to find out what happened next.
I really like these characters, strong people with weaknesses they try to put behind them. Allie's past comes back to haunt her in this book despite Tristan's efforts to keep her safe. She has a surprise, or two, for Tristan and their personal relationship continues to dev...more

Review from Jeannie Zelos Book reviews.
I bought the first book Layers Deep as it was only £1 – its now £1.99, but still worth the knew the story so far when I came to this book. Book one ends in a cliffhanger type scenario, but there's a sneak at book two so the poor reader isn't left in limbo. Regular readers of my reviews will know how I HATE the cliffhanger ending so a big thanks to Lacey for at least trying to avoid that horrible negativ...more
Allie Green works as an undercover for Cross Enterprises...

However, Tristan Cross, her super hot boss & "boyfriend", just fired her and she doesn't know what to do about her surprise for him. However, these are not the only surprises that they would be encountering from each other.

Their attraction to each other is growing stronger and stronger as they spend more time with each other. However, a dark past will disturb their peace. Could both their efforts save them from the immediate danger?

My rating: 3.5 of 5 ⭐️

Her mouth still open with the news she is fired from Cross Enterprises, Allie, former cop and lover of owner of the investigation company, as well as her boss, Tristan, sees her dreamed up future disappear into mist. This did not bode well for her own piece of what should have been big news, and she is about to beeline it out of his office when he blocks her way and demands to set some things straight. And straight they get.....but no less complicated.

Their renewed mutual a...more
