One year.

It’s been one year since Agent Damian Trent left for Washington without a word.

One year since he’s seen her beautiful face.

One year since he’s heard his name on her lips.

He’s been recently called back to New York City on assignment, to catch a criminal who’s trying to infiltrate Sunset Reads. The last thing he expects is to work side by side with the woman he turned his back on.

Having her close is an unwanted distraction that he’s more than willing to ignore, if only she wasn’t so damn tempting.

Everything seems under control, until a night of feverish passion has him abandoning all thoughts of reason. Now, he will do everything in his power to get her back, and even more so to protect her.

Layla Reece wants nothing to do with the man who left her a year ago.

The man who took her heart with him, leaving her broken.

After a year of trying to forget Damian Trent, she is finally ready to move on.

But trying to forget him becomes a tedious task when he suddenly reappears in her life.

Although she fights to stay away, his magnetism is too strong and she finds herself giving into the deep timbre of his voice, and the strength and safety of his arms.

Staying away from Damian turns out to be futile, especially when his kisses consume her and his heart shatters the walls she spent so much time building.

Finding herself in danger, she now has to turn to the only man she trusts to keep her safe, but can she trust him enough to give him her heart once again?

Sunset Reads: Damian & Layla is actually the second book in a series, but it can be read as a standalone. I could easily follow what was happening, even though I hadn’t read the first book.

Layla’s been trying hard to forget the man who left her a year ago, to get over him, heal and move on. But when Damian returns, she finds that the spark they shared, the chemistry between them is still there. And when she finds herself giving in to passion, and is forced to trust Damian to protect her and everything she holds dear, she starts to wonder if she can trust him with her heart again as well…

This was a fun second chance romance with a lot of suspenseful elements. The characters are great, and I especially liked Damian, but then again, I do have a soft spot for FBI agents. The book is definitely for adults, though, since there are some hot and spicy scenes, which only made the book even better.

The writing was solid too, and the plot entertaining. I look forward to reading more books by this author, and if I find some time in my schedule, I might pick up book one in the series.
