Hyde and Seek
My Rating: 💜💜💜
Piper Skye is rock ‘n’ roll. She’s party all night, sleep all day. She’s get wild and be free.
Or she would be if she had the time.
And the energy.
And not being so awkward would probably help, too.
As the owner of a thriving dessert business, Piper spends her days at school and her nights elbow deep in batter and frosting. She’s confident her hard work and sacrifice will pay off as long as she stays focused and sticks to the plan.
Jake Hyde is a workaholic with a jaded outlook on life. Surrounding himself with employees he considers his brothers, he long ago made the decision that his custom garage would be his focus.
Fate, as it often does, has other ideas. Plus, a killer sense of humor.
Thrown together by coincidence, the gruff mechanic and the sweet as sin baker have instant sparks. Suddenly, all of their carefully made plans have taken a giant freakin’ left turn.
And they do it on the back of a Harley.
*Warning: This book is intended for adults. It contains frequent adult language and situations.
Don’t try this at home.
At least not without stretching first.
Maybe keep the sneakers on for traction, too.
This was exactly what I needed after a murder mystery. What happens when you get a mechanic and a baker together? Sparks!
There a lot of reviews that compare it to Kirsten Ashley’s work but sadly I can’t say if it is or not. I haven’t read any of her work. I know, I know. Don’t throw your tomatoes this way!
I just wanted an easy sexy romance and that’s what I got plus a little more. I didn’t expect for this book to really grab me. I just couldn’t stop reading. Yes, there is a bit of an instant connection. However, I’m not going to say that it was insta love. They didn’t immediately fall in love. It took trial and error and quite a few misunderstandings.
“Love’s anarchy. There are no rules, no rhyme or reason. You can’t control it. You can fight to keep it and lose. Or fight to keep it away and lose. Or win, depending. Love’s chaos. It’s mayhem.”
Piper was sweet, fun, and hilarious while Jake was brooding, bossy, and had a lot of history. These two made me smile so much in this book. Especially Jake, he was all in and I couldn’t get enough of him expressing his love for Piper. They weren’t the only ones that made me smile. I also loved the side characters of this book. Especially the boys. They were hilarious, especially when it came to Piper’s baking.
Now the reason my rating isn’t higher is because there was just a bit too much drama for me. Don’t get me wrong, I like a little of drama here and there, but every time I turned around there was something going on. Either a blast from Jake’s past or just an argument for no reason.
All in all, it was a great sexy read that gave me more than I thought it would. This was my first book my Layla Frost and I can’t wait to see what else she writes.
