Lost in Us (Book 1)
Serena 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.
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.
Found in Us (Book 2)
Jessica 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?
Caught in Us (Book 3)
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?

Caught in Us is a beautifully inspiring and utterly ravishing journey of allowing the light of hope and love to not only surround but penetrate the broken and hurting hearts of those that are living in darkness. Even those who find themselves wandering in the fringes of the gray areas between light and dark can choose to have the sun warm their face once again. There is never a shortage of hope when love is allowed to break through the impenetrable barriers around your heart. Never turn away from the most precious things in life because they could easily be the very things that could save you.
Dani would seem to have the perfect life with her rich family, good grades, and bright future, but how often are those who seem to have everything really have nothing when they take a closer look? She finds the one things she desperately longs for in the new boy at school. Until Damon came along, she never realized just how empty her life was without the simple and pure love that he offers her. Even with the demons that Damon wrestles with, Dani can see the good and beauty in him no matter how worthless he thinks he is. She breathes life and hope into his grieving and broken heart. No matter how much he knows he should stay away from her to keep from dragging her down, his heart won’t let him walk away. She comes to mean everything to him, and he won’t turn his back on her. Will these two lonely souls find a way to stay together in order to heal each other, or will their choice be taken away in the name of doing what’s best for them?
I absolutely fell in love with Dani and Damon throughout their story. They found their completion in the other, and they cherished the precious bond that they were building day after day. It was so wonderful to see how Damon treated Dani with such a depth of love, respect, and kindness in every way possible. He made her laugh, built up her confidence, and made sure she knew that he really saw her. While he couldn’t look into her soul or read her mind, he could tell what she needed and he gave it to her. Dani knew without a doubt that Damon cared about her, cherished their friendship, and did his best to protect her from himself and others that might try to hurt her. They were such an amazing couple whose miraculous love literally took my breath away.
Layla Hagen has a tremendously incredible talent of opening your heart to her wonderful characters from the very first word. You feel every written word as if it originated from the beating of your own heart. The pace of her story is so natural and beautifully fluid, and the storyline will remain with you long after the last word has been read. This is one author that is not to be missed. The soul that is found within these pages will touch you like nothing else can. I challenge you to walk away from her books and not feel the light, hear the passion, and experience a one-of-a-kind love.
Great reading, love them!
