Entice (The Affair #1)
By: S. Layne
Summary from Goodreads:
When the most difficult decision of Laurie Baker’s life needed to be made, she took off for a weekend alone to weigh her pros and cons and consider all her options.
What she didn’t expect was to run face first into one more complication her life didn’t need.
Distracting, sexy, and British, Liam Parker offered Laurie exactly what she needed when she was desperate for attention.
One night of pleasure.
She wanted it.
She craved it.
She took it.
And when the sunlight dawned and the lusty haze of one night of passion disappeared and reality revealed itself…
Laurie returned home knowing that everything she had once believed, everything she had once loved and desired, was about to be tossed upside down and shaken in a way she could never imagine.
It’s pretty obvious that Entice is a steamy read and the author doesn’t waste any time there. The book starts with Laurie running into Liam and them having their sexy weekend together. Then things start getting complicated and we get to know more about her story. We are also treated to a few unexpected twists (which I always welcome).
I don’t normally like to give out anything in my reviews, but since this is on the very first page, I don’t feel too bad about it. So Laurie is married and she recently found out that her husband cheated on her with his assistant, a/k/a her best friend. Having just finished the book, I am still trying to understand why I didn’t feel at all how I expected to feel about these things. It might be S. Layne’s writing or the way the characters were portrayed but somehow, I actually felt bad for James (the cheating husband). I would never forgive my own husband if I were to find out he did this to me so I was almost 100% positive that I would be team Liam. But I truly feel kind of torn between the two and if I were Laurie, I’d have no idea what to do. I am so surprised by this that I am extremely eager to read the next book and find out what she does, so she can decide for me as well!
