Book 1: Serena and JamesSerena has learned to live with her past, locking her secrets and nightmares deep inside her. But when her boyfriend of six years abruptly leaves her, she's catapulted back into pain, nursing a broken heart. When indulging in mountains of chocolate doesn't work, Serena decides the best way to deal with her shattered heart is to indulge in something else. A rebound . . . The night she swaps her usual Sprite for tequila, she meets James. The encounter is breathtaking. Electrifying. And best not repeated. James is a successful entrepreneur in Silicon Valley. A man who has amassed a fortune by taking risks. A man who has shunned commitment completely, and still does. He's the exact opposite of Serena. But sometimes opposites attract. Sometimes they give in to burning passion. Sometimes opposites are perfect for each other. James is everything her damaged soul could want. His kisses are intoxicating, his touch out of this world. He makes her forget. He grants her peace from her pain. But as they grow closer, Serena discovers she isn't the only one with a past. James carries the scars of a past much darker than hers. One that has left him damaged, hurt, and wary of love. A past that gives him the power to shatter her. Now James and Serena must find a way to mend one another. Or risk losing each other forever.

Book 2: Jessica and ParkerJessica Haydn wants to leave her past behind. Hurt by one too many heartbreaks, she vows not to fall in love again. Especially not with a man like Parker, whose electrifying pull and smile bruised her ego once before. But his sexy British accent makes her crave his touch, and his blue eyes strip Jessica of all her defenses. Parker Blakesley has no place for love in his life. He learned the hard way not to trust. He built his business empire by avoiding distractions, and using sheer determination and control. But something about Jessica makes him question everything. Not only has she a body made for sin, but her laughter fills a void inside of him. The desire igniting between them spirals into an unstoppable passion, and so much more. Soon, neither can fight their growing emotional connection. But can two scarred souls learn to trust again? And when a mistake threatens to tear them apart, will their love be strong enough?


 

EXCERPT

(Attention! Extreme hotness alert!)

"I can't make up my mind," Parker says. 
"About what?"
"About what I want to do with you."
I gulp. "Don't I get a say in this?"
He snaps his head up, chuckling. "Not really."
"That's not frustrating at all, you know? What are you thinking right now?"
He tugs his lower lip with his teeth. "You really want to know?"
"Yeah, I really want to know."
He shifts his weight on the edge of the seat, and when he leans forward this time, I don't back off. "I'm thinking I would very much like to see you come," he says into my ear. My mind doesn't register the full impact of his words right away. But my body does. "Anything against that, Jessica?" he whispers, his hand trailing up and down my inner thigh.
"N-no," I say in a low voice. So low that I hope he hasn't heard me. But he has. There's no other explanation as to why his hand has already found its way under my dress. 
"Turn around and spread your legs," he commands. 
"Parker," I mumble, "not here . . ."
"No one can see us, and Dani won't come back soon. Turn around." 
Despite knowing I shouldn't, I turn around. My body no longer seems to listen to any commands of mine. I lean my back against his chest, my head resting on his shoulder, my forehead touching the base of his neck. I look into the room, trying to gauge what those in the boxes opposite us can see. But I can barely see anything in the back row of the boxes directly in front of us. There's no reason to believe anyone could see us from there. Anyone looking from above won't have a clear view of the back row either. 
"Spread your legs," he repeats, his tone more authoritative than before. It sends another wave of heat through me. Burying myself in his neck, I open up for him. He doesn't touch me right away. He takes his time, trailing his fingers on the inside of my thigh, inciting a deep hunger in my core that grows with each inch of my skin he touches until I drop any pretense of shame and beg him, "Parker . . ."
When his fingers touch my intimate spot over my panties, I stiffen against him. 
"You're soaked," he says, and I take immense pleasure in the slight tremble in his voice. Then his fingers start rubbing me slowly, and I dig my own fingers in the cushion of the chair as a spasm wracks through me. 
This man will make me come. 
Here, surrounded by people and plush velvet-covered seats. 

Caught in Us (Book 3)

Amazon USB&NAppleKobo


CaughtInUsResized
Dani has her future all planned out. She’s not the type to fall for a bad boy, no matter how panty-melting his grin is or how shamelessly he flirts. But something about Damon draws her in, awakening a desire she’s never felt. Slowly, she uncovers the secrets Damon hides: underneath his arrogance lies a tortured soul, his flirting smile masks despair. Damon arrives in Dani’s life against his will. Carrying the scars of a dark past and facing an uncertain future, he knows he should stay away from her, but can’t. Her innocence consumes him, as does the desire to indulge in the passion igniting deep inside her. An all-consuming bond blooms into a reckless love. But when mistakes from the past threaten their already fragile future, can their love survive? *This series is recommended for 18+ due to romance and sex and mature themes.*







EXCERPT

"You're not all that bad for a rich girl," he says. This snaps me out of my daydreaming. Or, well, lip-dreaming. 

"You say it like I should take it as a compliment."

"It is a compliment. You're a breath of fresh air." He shifts on his side, facing me. 
"So are you. You're different from everyone I know."
"Is it because I'm devastatingly good-looking?" he says mischievously. 
I roll my eyes at him. "It's because you are extremely modest. We should go back. You know, hanging around with me is going to ruin your reputation."
"What's that supposed to mean?"
"You didn’t notice the way people looked at us last Friday? Or today in the cafeteria?"
"So what?" His eyes widen, and he grins. "You're ashamed people might see you with me?"
I gasp slightly. "That's not true."
"You're afraid they'll think we were secretly making out," he teases.
"They will not think that." Heat surges in my cheeks. 
"Hazel seems to think exactly that." 
I can't be blushing. I can't be blushing. Damon eyes one of my cheeks and then the other. His grin widens. Of course, I'm blushing. 
"You'd like to make out with me? You just have to say it. I assure you I'm a perfectly good kisser." He leans into me, his eyes scanning me playfully. Does he know what he's doing to me with his dark green eyes and his annoyingly beautiful lips? He, who must have touched tens of other lips with his, and toyed with as many hearts? My heart beats so fast I legitimately fear I might faint. He's just joking, Dani. 
"Not every female around wants to kiss you." How I muster the wits to say the next words, I'll never know. "You're not as good-looking as you think."
"But you admit I'm good-looking?"
"I didn't say that."
"You didn't deny it," he says.  
"Please go work your charm on someone else who is more experienced with these games. I'm not." 
He pulls back. "What do you mean?"
"We have to go." I take my plate and jump to my feet. He catches up with me on the stairs, grabbing my arm. 
"You've never been kissed?" he asks. 
I debate lying for a second, but I've never been any good at it. "No, I haven't. Go ahead. Laugh."
He's not laughing. "Why?" he seems genuinely confused, and I almost laugh. He reminds me so much of James right now, who is always completely bewildered by the fact that no guy is into me. 
"I don't think I'm anyone's type here at school," I explain. 
"Figures. I knew most here are idiots; I didn't realize just how much."
The implication in his words fills me with warmth and relief: that there is something wrong with them. Not with me. 
"So no one was lucky enough to taste your lips," he says, and then does something that petrifies me. He runs his thumb over my upper lip, then my lower one. My thighs involuntarily press themselves together as heat billows between them. A whiff of breath rushes through my lips.   
"We should go to class," I murmur.
"Sure." A smile plays on his lips all the way to the class. We attract stares, just as I predicted. This time, he does notice them. Leaning into me, Damon says, "You were right. They are looking at us, but I was right too."
"What do you mean?"
"They are convinced we spent the entire break making out. And if you continue to blush so deliciously, I'll wish we had."

Serena is a smart, witty and clever girl that you enjoy watching her journey.

I'm happy that I read this book. This book left a smile on my heart and my face. 


FOUND IN US

I really loved reading Parker & Jessica's story. I read this book so much pleasure and excitement that took me completely away. I loved every aspect of the book from the beginning to the end. You're looking at pages with love

 Absolutely love it, I want to say a lot more, I do not like to give spoiler. All I can say it is certainly an excellent job!  

CAUGHT IN US



Layla Hagen wrote each story as magical

Caught in Us (Lost 3), is the third book in this amazing series is. Each book can be read as a stand-alone because it focuses on other couples. I really fell in love with Damon and Dani. What a great story! I smiled the whole time during i was read this book.
This book is very different from the other two books. Caught in Us, was a road from darkness to light, it was like a fairy tale. You're looking with love in your eyes while reading this book. I really loved this couple.  

Dani is a typical shy girl that nobody notices. Dani, with her rich family and good grades appears to have a bright future ahead of her, but not all is what it seems like. 

Damon is the typical bad boy. He seems very shameless, but behind this image he hides a broken heart. 

Life can sometimes be difficult for some, it is sometimes easy. Love is beautiful, but did Dani and Damon possess this beautiful love?  

I loved every aspect of the book from the beginning to the end. I smiled throughout the book, and I did not want to stop. This book left a smile on my heart and my face. I felt like I was back in high school. It was an absolutely beautiful and warm story. 

The best advice I can give you is to read this book. And after reading you’ll see the magnificant story telling of Layla. 

It was definitely a story I read with pleasure. Layla Hagen, I want to thank you for this beautiful story. I'm happy that I read this book. 
  
P.S: You will not be disappointed. I strongly recommend it to anyone. 

One-click it and read it.
