Layers (Stark #1)



According to Hayley love is a subject of ridicule, a myth created by hopeless romantics.

When Hayley makes a resolution to declare her loose lifestyle era R.I.P, it’s all good in theory…

That is until she meets Daniel Stark, a well-respected, mid-thirties business man who is known for his short temper, lack of steady relationships as well as his strict preserve of his private life.

Opinionated, sharp tongued Hayley accidently steps into his office leaving Daniel resolved to put Hayley in her place and have her in his bed.

Both Hayley and Daniel can’t avoid the immediate instigation of the attraction between them.

In a unanimously agreed upon verdict by Hayley and her two best friends, Ian the gay self-absorb, aspiring model and Natasha the witty, borderline neurotic soul mate, Daniel Stark is to be Hayley’s pure physical attraction, emotions aside era closure.

Will it indeed be a closure, or a beginning to something neither Hayley nor Daniel ever bargained for…

So this book literally took over my life for two days, when I wasn’t reading it, I wished I was.

At first I really did wonder what was going on. I was a little bit confused I’m not sure if this was because I was half asleep when I started but one minute she was in a club then in a taxi, screaming for some man to get off her to then be at an interview. Which wasn’t quite you normal interview!!! Then came the moment that made me hooked…

Observing the damage with irritation, I murmur, “Fuck me,” under my breath.

“is that a request?”

Shifting my stare back to see who has just spoken, I find myself holding on to the counter from a momentary loss of balance, as I take in the sight of the orator.

Well ladies say Hello to Mr Daniel Stark – if you loved Mr Grey and Mr Ward then you will LOVE Daniel just as much.

Hayley put her foot in it many times and I just want to high five her..

“Hey Mr. Stark, it was nice trashing you. Did you enjoy it as much as I did?”

This book had me laughing all the way through; Hayley was just my kind of girl. No nonsense moaning from this girl, Beautiful and witty. I loved her!! She just said it how it was and even when Daniel was trying to control situation’s she soon put his sexy, wealthy, controlling fine piece of ass into place.

“I seriously feel like slapping him… after ripping his clothes off.”

“Why, Mr Stark, you were so talkative a few minutes ago. Have you lost your words? Do you need a moment?” Wow, did that just come out of my mouth? I’m terribly shaken, but boy am I ecstatic. Well done.

It’s all going great and I’m really engrossed in where this love is going, because we have gone from two people who don’t do relationships and one that doesn’t even kiss on the lips to, two people who you see are falling madly deeply in love with each other and you guessed it, it’s beautiful to watch.

“I am so yours, more than I’ve ever been mine.”

I really didn’t see it coming till it was there and I wanted to shout, NO HAYLEY, STOP TALKING. I just knew what she was talking about to her best friend in a public place, was not the private conversation she thought she was having. I wanted to cry for her and hug her and tell her it will all be ok.

“let’s take some time apart for both our sakes.”

Panicked, I call after him. He turns back for a brief moment and the only thing that comes to my mouth, dreading the moment that he’ll leave, is, “ Daniel, don’t let this be the last thing we ever say to each other.”

It’s pretty heart breaking and I’m on the edge of my seat and I just don’t know what to do, I just want them to start ripping each others clothes off, it’s doesn’t come but after Hayley goes home and awaits some heart breaking news, she makes that call, you pray she does but she does it with her battery being low

“Daniel, I need…” then the phone dies and you think to yourself, DAMN
