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 attentio

I usually don't go for cheating books. I always say I don't want to deal with it in real life or in a book. After reading this book I had to think why I felt this way. I've realized reading is my escape and in the past I've read cheating books that made me sad, downright mad and I remember leaving the books with an icky feeling. But surprisingly this one actually worked for me.

The story opens with Laurie who is sadde

There's plenty of reviews on here explaining what happens in this story, so I'm not going to rehash the whole thing again. It was a lot different than I thought it would be going into it. Laurie's emotions in this story were completely believable, and I loved all the blindsiding shock events thrown at her from everybody she knew and trusted in this story. I loved this story so much! I couldn't put it down, finished it in one sitting, and I'm headed to start book 2 next!

What would you do if your husband cheated on you? I would probably end up in jail if I did what I wanted to do. Actually, I think I could get away with it... with all the CSI shows I've watched. I'm just kidding.... sort of.

When Laurie's husband cheated on her, she was heart broken. She felt stupid. She was so in love with James that she didn't even know there were any issues in their marriage. James was her high school sweetheart, and he had sex with her best friend.

She did

Loved this book so much.....every woman has a time in her life when she just wants to forget. What better way to forget than with a hawt alpha male who plays your body like a finely tuned instrument??? Nothing lasts forever & reality has a way of kicking our bums into action whether we want to act or not & that's exactly what happened. Liam is all kinds of sexy & I liked him very much. I cannot wait for Embrace to be released to see where Laurie's journey takes her.

Laurie Baker is a woman scorned, but is she the kind of woman who can go against her wedding vows as payback? Is the promise of pleasure and freedom with a mysterious man enough to move forward and make a decision for her future without there being further consequences?

The old adage of two wrongs don't make a right definitely seems appropriate for Laurie's situation, but the benefits of her decision have never felt so good and yet so bad all at the same time.

Liam Parker's offer was too enticing

This was the first book I've ever read by this author, but definitely won't be the last. This story had me intrigued from the very first page. I love a strong female lead and Laurie was the perfect mix of strength, femininity and vulnerability. It has been awhile since I've liked a heroine as much as Laurie. She drew me into the story right from the start and I felt vested in her plight.

I feel like I have to smack a big, old warning label on this book because the subject matter is a hard limit for some readers, so here goes: The heroine in this book is married.

There, now that's out of the way let the review continue. This book is all kinds of grab your vibrator (or spouse), cold shower material. I thought I was going to incinerate just reading. Yowzers!

Laurie's perfect world changed when she overhead her husband James and her best friend Becky talking about a night they spent together. For the past month, James has apologized daily and swears it will never happen again, but Laurie can't get past the hurt or lack of trust. Out of town for a business trip, she literally runs into the most gorgeous man she's ever seen. Liam invites her to meet him for a drink. Bitter at James, she agrees. She just wants to feel something other than hurt. One drin ...more

Laurie Baker is broken. Broken by her husband's infidelity. Everything she thought that was is now in question. What is a person to do? Take a break ... walk away ... separate yourself from the problem and clear your head. And that's exactly what Laurie does. And then some .... cue, Liam Parker.

Liam offered Laurie exactly what she thought she needed. One night. A night to forget, to walk away from her past, to

Entice by S. Layne is HOT!!!! This is the first book in the Affair Series and does contain a cliffhanger ending. I cannot wait until book two is released. I am hooked on this series like an addict waiting for their next fix. I can’t say that about many books but I can definitely say this about this one.

Entice is a story about the heroine, Laurie Baker, and the hero, Liam Parker. What is supposed to just be a one night stand for Laurie ends up with her life in total upheaval. Liam manages to plan

Genre: Erotica, Romance

Well, I like the sound of this, though I’m not keen on cheating in a novel there’s no denying it does create drama – and I love that.

Anyway. we meet Laurie who’s had her world rocked – and not in a good way.There she was thinking she had it all, perfect loving husband, her first and only love, great job that she enjoys and a couple of fabulous best friends. Then at a dinner party at their h

Entice is heartbreaking, passionate, endearing at times, and full of angst. Ladies and gents there are some extremely yummy scenes full of woman letting lose and a delectable man. What tantalizing scenes those are for the readers.

Laurie is out of town on business. Her heart is shattered from the infidelity of her husband. The worse part was the affair had been with her best friend. Laurie is trying to pick up the pieces of figure out what direction to go in when she literally runs into the sexie

Entice is book # 1 in The Affair Series and is a highly addictive and emotional read by S Layne.

When Laurie Baker attends a medical conference on behalf of her ParaMed Cells CEO boss she utilises the opportunity to contemplate her future after discovering 3 months previously her husband James had betrayed her with his assistant whose also her best friend Becky. It's decision time for Laurie: stay and forgive James and be the dutiful wife she's been brought up to be or divorce him and see what t

My Thoughts:

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

The book opens with headache and betrayal. The main character Laurie is needing space from the guy she has loved since she was 14- James. Even after the affair came to light, James still works closely and employs his secretary, Lauries best friend or used to be. Ouch! Laurie struggles with the hurt of James betrayal and the love she still feels for him. All the while Laurie is trying to leave so she can figure out what to do, James is begging her to come back to him. Reading this leaves my stoma ...more

This is the first book in the Affairs Series (note the word affairs). I do not usually read books dealing with affairs. However, the story is wonderfully told it's not just about having an affair it's about dealing with the aftermath.

Laurie is married and coming to terms with her husbands affair. She leaves on a business trip deciding whether or not to end her marriage to her high school sweetheart or trying to work it out. She is propositioned by some yummy goodness, what is a girl to do. Yes,

Get ready to fall in love!!! This is a brand new book by S.Layne and it seems to have it all. It is hot, crazy intense and makes you fell a little of everything!!

Laurie Baker had everything. She was married to her best friend, had a great job and was happy. Then she find out her husband has cheated on her. This is the first in a long line of dominoes of bad things to come. Laurie is having a bad few weeks.

It's pretty obvious that Entice is a steamy read and the author doesn’t waste any time there. The book starts with Laurie running into Liam and them having their sexy weekend together. Then things start getting complicated and we get to know more about her story. We are also treated to a few unexpected twists (which I always welcome).

When James doesn't feel those special moments with his wife, Laurie, any longer he starts to feel neglected and is receiving atte

I absolutely loved this book. It is a five star read. It was fast paced. I loved the character development. It was so well written, I could just not put it down. Then I jumped right into the second book and that is why I am so torn. I should have written this review before reading the 2nd book that finishes Laurie's story. That book is just as well written, but the actual story line was so disappointing. So, know what you are getting in to. This book was fantastic, but don't start it if you aren ...more

Entice is beautifully heartbreaking and deeply passionate. Laurie has to walk out on her husband, her high school sweetheart, because she found him cheating on her. She goes to a work convention for the weekend and promptly runs smack into Liam. The two have a deep attraction that neither want to deny.

Liam is crude, wicked, and demanding. Liam has all the makings of a redeemable hero and gives Laurie pleasure she didn't think possibly. Laurie is torn apart by her failing marriage, her attractio

Laurie’s work sends her to a medical conference and she uses this time to get away and think. While checking in the hotel she meets Liam, who is so hot and sexy and she feels drawn to him. He asks for her to have a drink and what is supposed to be one night turns in to more. Then her world gets turned even more upside down and her heart is broken again. Can ...more

I loved this book because it was about a lady who found out something that destroyed her and she had to make a decision on what she wanted to do with her life. What is a woman suppose to do when her life is destroyed, she goes away to figure things out. This is when the book gets really good because the one thing that she didn't need shows up in her life and throws her life for a loop.

I received a ARC of Entice from NetGalley for a honest review

Laurie's life was ripped apart when she over heard her husband (childhood sweetheart)and best friend discussing their affair in her kitchen.

She has given herself a 3 day deadline while she is away in Chicago, attending a medical technology conference, to make some hard decisions.

While having a drink in the wine bar Laurie meets Liam, for the first time ever she feels tempted in having a one night stand with the sexy British man.

WOW! Can we say hot hot hot!!!!! S. Layne blew me away with this book. When faced with a life changing decision Laurie takes off to think. She wasn't expecting to meet sexy, intriguing and handsome Liam. The chemistry between These two was intense and some kind of hot! Can one night change your life? Can passion turn into more? For Laurie and Liam I believe it has. I'm looking forward to more of their story. I'm totally invested in these characters and rooting for their HEA. I highly recommend y ...more

Once again Stacey has got me counting the days until I can get my hands on the next book! I started this late last night and did not put it down until I finished. Laurie experienced the ultimate betrayal to only find herself face to face with another heartbreak. This one possibility worse than the first.
