Layers Deep (Layers Trilogy, #1)

3.5 STARS.

He needs her to save a friend.
She needs him to plan her revenge.
Their pasts scar them Layers Deep.
Their passion distracts them…
…and distractions can be fatal.

Layers Deep was a sexy, action-packed story that definitely managed to keep me on my toes the entire time I was reading it. With a fair amount of drama, some pretty suspenseful action scenes and lots of passionate romance, this book turned out to be a fun, surprising read that I would highly recommend to those who are looking for a hot, billionaire story that stands out from many other novels in its genre.

Allie Green is a rookie cop with a dark and disturbing past. In order to keep her mother safe from a dangerous and disturbing enemy, she's willing to do whatever it takes. So, when the opportunity presents itself to become the newest employee in the most successful investigation firm in New York, she decides to grab the opportunity with both hands. That way, she can take advantage of the company's vast amount of recourses to once and for all, escape the man who once upon a time destroyed her family. What she hadn't expected though, was that the firm's owner, Tristan Cross would be such a tough temptation to resist...

Tristan Cross is the successful, rich and extremely handsome owner of Cross Enterprises, a top investigation firm. When an old friend of his goes missing, he needs someone to infiltrate in the dangerous environment that holds his friend captive. Allie Green seems like the perfect candidate for the job, but pretty soon Tristan finds himself attracted to her in more ways than one, and, after a troublesome experience in the past, he's unsure whether he's willing to ever let himself have those kind of feelings for anyone ever again.

Both Tristan and Allie have a troubled past and a job that constantly puts them at risk. Still, neither of them can deny the strong attraction they feel whenever they're in the same room. They're both in desperate need of someone who will help them heal and overcome their painful pasts, but are they willing enough to put their feelings on the line and open themselves up for a better future?

All in all, Layers Deep was a well written, surprising and fun story to read with a little bit of angst and lots of passion and suspense. Even though there were a few predictabilities in the storyline, the story still managed to stand out among many other billionaire romance novels because of the action-filled plot. I will definitely continue with the rest of the series, especially after the way it ended with a huge cliffhanger!
