Hyde and Seek (Hyde #1) by Layla Frost @LaylaFWrites
Layla Frost really took me away to my special happy place with this sexy
and suspenseful read. It had pages of humor and passion throughout. I
adored the characters and the sassy banter between Jake and Piper. From the start Jake had this mysterious and deeply almost icy persona. But once Piper started chipping away , his real heart started too show.
He was loyal, protective and honest. I had so many moments of pure "swoon". You
give me a bossy grunting alpha male and I'm focused, concentrating and
totally in bliss. Jake fit the bill perfectly and Piper was just what he
needed to tame this bad boy in the best way possible.
There were some
moments of angst but they weren't so heavy that I felt like I wanted to
scream. Just wanted to shake Jake a few times that's all. But he came through and made me feel better just when he should have. I was happy with the way this story flowed and I really didn't
want it to end. For me to watch characters grow and progress and peel
back the layers that make them seem real to me is a special thing and this is a gift that
good authors possess. This debut read by Layla did that in spades. Jake
was this gruff guy who didn't really show a lot of emotion ..till Piper
knocked him for a loop.
I was totally blown away with this sweetness at the end.
He was romantic in his alpha way and I loved it.
I can't wait for the next installment. I hope that Layla keeps writing
loyal one woman leading men so I can snap them up on release day every
time. 5 Sizzling Stars all the way.
