SEDUCTION & TEMPTATION
Daughter of a very powerful drug lord, Lola Anders life has always been dangerous and full of dark secrets. It’s something that’s always bothered her, but even more so after her mother dies. Lola thinks there’s more to her mother’s death than what she’s been told; that one of her father’s many enemies might have had something to do with it. And when a secret is revealed about her mother, Lola decides it’s time to leave the dangerous life she’s grown up in and get some answers.
But before Lola can get too far, she’s kidnapped by Frankie Catherlson, one of her father’s enemies, and given a choice—commit murder or let her father die. Worse, Layton Everett is the guy chosen to make sure she goes through with the hit.
Lola has known Layton since they were kids, but their friendship was ruined when he went to work for Frankie without so much as an explanation. Lola thinks Layton is just keeping an eye on her to make sure she goes through with the murder, but when it all comes down to it, Layton just might be on her side.
SINS & SECRETS
Lies. Betrayal. A double life.
Lola Anders isn’t who she seems. Two years ago she ran away from a dangerous life she’d been living since she way born in order to stay alive. She changed her name and reinvented herself into a good girl… at least part of the time anyway. A secretary by day and an escort by night, Lola lives a double life in order to maintain balance and survive. And things are going well, until a ghost from her past shows up out of nowhere.
Sexy and dangerous Layton Everett enters Lola’s life again without warning. Not only does Layton know who Lola really is but he also used to work for her family’s sworn enemy . Lola worries he’s shown up to finish the hit put on her two years ago, so she tries to stay away from him, but it’s difficult when he seems to be everywhere. Plus, she’s attracted to him more than she likes to admit.
The closer Lola gets to Layton, the more her life gets turned upside. She ends up getting caught up in Layton’s dangerous world and ultimately the life she ran away from catches up with her again.

I read these two books back to back and I was so glad I didn’t skip Seduction & Temptation because you really miss a lot of important parts of the story (currently it is free on Amazon – buy links are below).
Lola and Layton are childhood friends. They are very close and their friendship seems quite normal except that Lola’s father is some huge drug lord and her mother mysteriously dies one day. After that everything in Lola’s life changes. Still friends with Layton but now he’s done to work for the enemy and she’s so confused as to why.
Years later she’s kidnapped by a rival of her father’s and made to do something she definitely doesn’t want to do. Layton is told to make sure she follows through. Lots of drama occurs and quick decisions are made however, in the end Lola’s life as she knew it has been changed forever.
By this point I’m so involved in this story I dive right into Sins & Secrets and I wasn’t disappointed.
Sins & Secrets picks up two years later. Lola’s been on the run from some really bad people. Her only connection to her past life is one aunt but soon she cuts ties because by talking to her Lola is putting her in danger. Now completely on her own and is living a double life. Her nighttime persona gets her mixed up in some trouble and soon she finds out the cover she thought she had is gone.
She begins to get these strange messages and because of that becomes extremely paranoid. She knows she should leave but not knowing who is leaving her notes and following her is driving her crazy. Things pick up at this point and she learns a lot about her past and there are a ton of secrets that are revealed and more that she still needs to learn.
Since it’s mentioned in the blurb, I’m not giving anything away to tell you Layton shows back up but is he friend or foe? Either way let me say the chemistry is HAWT. Lola’s head is spinning with the information that is thrown at her (and boy are there some surprises). She’s completely confused and scared. She doesn’t know who to believe and trust, plus the information she learned is quite shocking. But there’s really no time for contemplation when there are some crazy scary people after her.
Between the two books there are lots of twists and turns. I was addicted to these books and can’t wait for the next to come out. I need to know if Lola will be safe and how her relationship with Layton will work itself out.
Jessica sets things up nicely for book 3, Lies & Betrayal. I know I need to read it now!
