Give In

I watched her.

I knew I shouldn’t. It was a mistake. Wrong. Forbidden.

A glimpse of heaven before a depraved angel led me to hell.

One email was all it would take to end the torture. A simple email, dropping Eden Wilder from my class and my life.
But I couldn’t do it. I was selfish—taking any bit of her I could.

That’s how addictions start. You give in just a little. Just once.

“She was my promise land.
My secret.
My obsession.”

Give In, by Layla Frost, is one of those books that when you read the final page, you just sit there for a few minutes, staring at your e-reader in awe perhaps. Layla is a new to me author and she has won my heart. While I was reading this, it took up every bit of my brain, no matter what I was doing. There was only one goal throughout my day, to finish whatever it was I was doing so I can get back to reading.

One Stalker-licious Hero!

Holy heck! This author claimed Give In to be a slow burn and in some aspects it is, but it’s the hottest slow burn I’ve ever read!

I’ve always enjoyed a taboo story and teacher/student is definitely one of my favorites. However, the “fear of getting caught” as the plot has worn thin, in my opinion. This is not that book. While there is definitely the anxiety of someone finding out, this goes far beyond that simple storyline.

Being a stripper isn’t the long-term plan, but it certainly pays the bills in the interim. Believing she was relatively safe from her side job being exposed, Eden Wilder is freaked to see Professor Caine in the audience. Her Political Theory Professor who barely acknowledges her in class, the one that most college girls’ lust after? Watching her on stage, requesting her services for lap dances; yes, that one. What’s more, he keeps returning. Eden shouldn’t b

There was a tingle up my spine…

There are certain authors that I read without even a quick squiz at the blurb. Layla Frost is one of those authors. I opened the first chapter and a shiver went up my spine. The words hit my eyes and a smile broke free. There is nothing better than returning to a favourite author and knowing by the end of the first page that I was about to experience magic. I was being led on a journey of discovery, taken out of my comfort zone and pushed to see past my narrow exis

I know some readers have had trouble finding the book in their local amazon territory. I'm SO sorry. The powers that be are hiding it. I've spent the afternoon on the phone( the horror! ) and it will hopefully be unhidden soon with a category change. If you click the link above, it should take you directly to the book in your amazon territory to purchase.

“Leaning closer, the blonde whispered, “Or maybe get together later? I’ve never met up with a customer.”
I almost choked on my beer. I’d sooner believe her snatch was a working credit card reader.
Not that it mattered. I didn’t want a dance, and I sure as hell didn’t want to fuck her.”

I absolutely loved this book. Strong heroine, sexy alpha/dom, slow burn, and writing so good I was hanging on every sentence.

5 ‘ Holy mother of BUILD UPS’ Stars

Oh. My. World! This book, and this build up, devastated and put me back together in the most unexpected of ways! I have no doubt Professor Caine and his angel, his Eden, won’t soon be forgotten!

Give In truly is all about the build up, the slow burn that you deliciously want to gorge on, but slowly taste to enjoy every single moment! From the very first page you could see something BIG was coming, and all small details and intricate subliminal hints just made th
4.5 stars.

There are reasons to give it 5 and to give it 4, but went with 5 because I enjoyed it up until the 90% mark.

Reasons to give it 5: the author veered away from old tropes and stereotypical characters. For example, the heroine wasnt constantly blushing, struggling to form sentences, and her nipples weren't always beacons when the hero was around. FINALLY!!!!! Details like this are what made this book really great in my opinion. Everything from the way her job and her boss was described

It has been a min since my last Layla Frost Read and can I just say I am absolutely enthralled with this release!?!

Trying to do this review without giving any spoilers will be hard ..

The experly beautifully written characterization of the main characters, the sexy as hell surprising plot, all tied up and bowed together in a perfect romance from Layla Frost.

Professor Caine & Eden will take you on a journey you are most definitely not going to see coming.

WOWSA!!!!! I binged this book in one session and I do not regret ignoring the real world, or feeding my family leftovers - totally worth it.

Professor Caine is EVERYTHING I love in an alpha, a true dominant -not a guy playing at being a dominant - there's a HUGE difference. He was the very definition of filthy dominance and it was delicious. His dialogue is the very best kind of dirty darkness and felt so genuine I was squirming while reading, the kink in this book is some of the best I've read

2.5 stars. I am normally a fan of this author's work, but this book missed the mark for me. Give In is Professor Damien Caine and Eden's story. Eden is in college, but is estranged from her family so she pays for her school by working as a stripper. Damien is her professor. He was at her strip club for a bachelor party when he recognized her as his student. After that, he goes to see her there often, watches her, and even gets private lap dances from her. He ignores her during class, though, whi ...more

Let me start by saying that I’m not a fan of taboo stories or BDSM, but I loved this book so freaking much.
Talk about possessive, jealous, controlling, stalker and obsessive Alpha male..holy d*mn!!
Eden is stubborn and strong willed and loved that even though she’s young, she stands for herself.
Professor Cain..swoon..what can I say? He had me hot with all his dirty talk and BDSM.
D*mn..he was addicted to his depraved angel.
This book was slow burn and I had me all anxious that they wouldn’t be cau

This was a little difficult to read. The beginning started out great, but then quickly got boring. I thought Damien was going to be a lot more of an alpha male but ended up more of a wishy-washy guy who likes a little BDSM. There was a lot of vague alluding to her background and his. Both ended up to be seemingly trivial and just wanted to hype up the suspense. All that anticipation that Eden was in danger and Damien would save her from her possibly criminal parents, and as it turns out

This really wasn't that bad at all. But what it was, was Fifty Shades of Grey fan fiction. I don't know if that was intentional or not, but that was my take. Happy reading!

I.... Just.... Need....a... Minute.

Ok! If this book were on a food menu it would need all 5 🌶️🌶️🌶️🌶️🌶️!!! That's the spiciness if this book!!! To me... The student/teacher romance never gets old! I have no problems what so ever with the desk scenario! Super hot! Then you add in the back story. The sight voyeurism. The moments of absolutely sweetness.... I'm totally sold! I was enraptured from the very first page!!! I will scream from the rooftops about people needing this book!!!

I wasn’t sure what to expect from this book but I was very pleasantly surprised, it’s slightly taboo but not in a way that you can disapprove of the teacher wanting a student.

Eden is a strong independent woman trying to make her way through college and hiding from her previous reality. Her job is very risqué, working as a stripper at Sinners is not ideal but it pays better than bartending and the tips are way better. It’s far enough away from the college campus that she never expected to see a

This is the first book I've read from this new to me author but it definitely won't be the last. This was almost book perfection for me! Professor Caine was the perfect amount of possessive alpha male and sweetness. Eden was a brilliant heroine. She was stubborn and independent but also desperate to be controlled and owned by Damien. I loved this book and wished it was much longer. 5 stars!

I’m sitting here trying to find the words to describe how much I liked this book, the slow burn, the filthy sweetness, the stalkerish hero, the trust gained, the COFFEE and the epilogue makes this one a perfect read. I might be bias, because I love everything that Layla writes, but don’t believe me, just buy it, read it and see for yourself. Bravo again miss Frost. ❤️

Indelicate Reviews by DD
This is one of those little gems when I am reading I am glancing around to see who might catch me lol!

Damien was an exquisite MC. His is dominant, controlling, and punisher. Whose punishments are to die for! Such a sexy character. There isn't a thing I would change about him or the ending he received. Brillant

On the other hand Eden began to bug me toward the end which dropped the rating for me. You can only deny things so many times or lie so many times...then I hit the point of irritation. She

Layla Frost has always been a rebel. A true badass.

Growing up, Layla used to hide under her blanket with a flashlight to read the Sweet Valley High books she pilfered from her older sister. It wasn’t long before she was reading hidden Harlequins during class at school. This snowballed into pulling all-nighters after the promise of “just one more chapter”.
