On a business trip to Vegas, Layla Sands confesses a secret that wasn’t hers to tell, in this enticing follow up novel from Jessica Marin.

I’ve loved and lost. Now I lose myself in mindless sex, drinking and work, anything to pass the time and fill the void that I feel. Another drink, another guy…until Chase Wilson. He’s not what I expect, turns out he’s also not who I thou

I thought Perfectly Lonely was a good read it would be the first book that I've had the pleasure of reading , even though this is the second book in the let me in series it can be read as a standalone with some minor spoilers that have occurred in the heartbreak warfare . My heart really went out to the characters and the challenges that they had to face , how they dealt with said challenges tore me up . Really like how the emotions were written and how they as a reader make you feel . Recommend ...more

Chase and Layla

I have to start off by saying this is probably one of the most talented writers I’ve ever had the joy of reading. She truly encompasses every emotional aspect in her stories. I feel happiness, heat, angst, frustration, joy, and anger. It was beautiful from the first page to the last.

Layla is a widower and the woman is a hot mess. I wanted in equal parts to console her and shake her. I wanted so badly for her to wake up and fight. Sadly, Layla was a work in progress. She uses men a

Perfectly lonely is the second book in the Let Me In series. It definitely needs to be read after book 1 because it picks up pretty much where the first story left off. This time though we get to hear Layla's story.

The story really had me on the edge wondering what was going to happen. Layla meets Chase in book one but we really don't get to hear much more about him until this book. After losing her husband Layla is spiraling out of control and finally realizes that she needs to start taking bet

After Heartbreak Warfare, I was MORE than ready for Chase and Layla’s emotional whirlwind of a story. And while I still love Cal (❤), Chase... MMMMmmmMMM!

Once again I am blown away with the writing, and have to remind myself that this is Jessica’s second... as in TWO... book and I love how she writes. You really want to immerse yourself into the world and be lifelong friends with the characters... Richard LOL! But I digress, back to Perfectly Lonely...

Living in his self imposed purgatory, Chase

Perfectly Lonely is the second book in the series and can be a standalone but would spoil so much of Heartbreak Warfare that I would recommend the series be read in order. Plus this book overlaps some of book one so it is good to visualize the bigger picture.

When I read Heartbreak Warfare, I was hoping to see Layla and Chase to get another opportunity at finding their second chance. Miscommunication, secrets, alcohol and a one night stand had possibly ruined what could have been something great

I loved this book. This book can be read as a standalone, I intend to go back and read the first book. I was not lost at all. My heart broke for Layla and Chase. These two are both going through grief and pain. This book is a emotional rollercoaster you will not want to get off of. Will these two be able to heal each other? I was drawn in right away, I could not put this book down. I cannot stress how much of a must read this book is. Everyone should read this book. You will not be sorry I can p ...more

This is the second book in this amazing series, and is Layla and Chase’s story. Both of these characters are working through grief and pain, yet can they heal each other? No spoilers; this is a definite must read, you will not be disappointed! This is a beautifully written story from this extremely talented author, and is filled with emotion, angst, love, and is a steamy and healing story. I was totally intrigued and captivated throughout, and cannot wait to read more from this author, and I hig ...more

Better than the first!!

After loosing the love of her life Layla is scared to start having feelings again especially not for Chase. But when he declares he will make her love him she doesn’t know what to think. Can she love someone who betrayed her?

Was such a good story I love Chase, doing something he doesn’t really like to try to save the family business which is failing due to an aweful father.

Another fantastic 5 star read from Jessica Marin. This one was slightly different than book one, there was lots more emotion than the first. But Layla and Chase were brilliant characters and it was great to see the previous characters again.

Will definitely be looking out for more from this author!

Lots of emotions in this book!

I loved getting more of Cal and Jenna's story in this book; but also loved learning more about Layla and her past and what she needs to over come for herself in order to succeed.

I just thought Chase was the obnoxious papperazi his whole life but I was proven wrong. He also has his demons to overcome.

Will they overcome their demons and be happy again? Enjoy!!

Sooooo excited for #3!!!

Layla isn't having an easy time in life, in fact, she's a complete mess. She just wants to be numb from her pain, so she uses alcohol & men for that purpose, and it's doing her no favors. Chase is busy cleaning up his father's mess, and it's taking a toll on him, especially since he's also trying to fix a broken family consisting of his mother & brother, after his father's betrayal & death. Can these two people with each of their own grief, heal each other together? Perfectly Lonely ...more

This is the second book in the Let Me In series, and is Layla and Chase’s story. Both of these characters are damaged and broken but the question is are they recoverable and will they be a positive impact to each other or just continue to year each other down? Layla is working through the grief of her husband from a few years prior. She can't get past the idea that it's ok to let go and move on. Chase is running from the demons his father left behind in a stocking winery. Though they want each o ...more

Loved reading Layla's story! It's very easy to find yourself feeling sorry for her for everything she's been through and wanting to shake some sense into her at the same time. Robert as usual is always comedy relief and a dose of the truth when its needed. I'm really hoping there is a third book as I want to know what's up with the nanny and Seth, and I have my suspicions on the death threats, but I need to know if I'm right! This series is the first I've read of Jessica Marin and I have to say ...more

*Received an ARC in exchange for an honest review*

The author is very talented. I was just unable to connect with the story. It was probably because I didn't the first book. It would have given me a better background on this one. Layla is a widower. She lost the love her life. She didn't know how to cope or how to feel. She ended up using men and alcohol to make her feel again. Chase is a paparazzi and has a bad history with Layla and wants to make amends with her. He tries to help Layla with de

I couldn’t wait to start Layla and Chase’s story after reading about them in Heartbreak Warfare you knew that there story would be emotional. Jessica has captured every emotion you can think of with this book. Chase sexy hot and emotional scared from his past that he hasn’t dealt with, then here Layla emotionally unavailable on a destructive path. Can these two people find happiness with each other. I have truly enjoyed both books in the series so far and can’t wait to see what the author brings ...more

Layla’s story is sad and lonely story. Having self doubts and tradgey in her life makes her make the wrong choices. when it comes out that Chase is the photographer who she told the story of Jenna’s to everything starts to make sense. We also get to find out more about Jenna and Cal story. I loved this series so far the characters feel like i know them and every emotion they go through. Highly recommend as must read series that you will fall in love with and have you wanting more.
