Synopsis

People always say it’s what’s on the inside that matters. If that’s the case, I’m screwed. On the outside, everything looks put together — blonde hair, blue eyes, tall and lean. By society’s standards, I’d be considered attractive. But f*ck society, I know what I am. I know what I’m made of. The recessive genes that reared their heads and created a decent looking package on the outside don’t make me who I am. What about all the evil lurking inside? What about all the other parts of me that aren’t so easy to see? Some of the most beautiful animals are also the deadliest. Take the polar bear, for example. Cute and cuddly on the outside, but it’s really a predator that will bite your f*cking head off. That’s a dangerous combination.

And that’s exactly like me, exactly who I am. Bad — and once you go bad, you can never go back.

WARNING: This book deals with the harsh reality of rape that could be upsetting for some readers.

My Review

“…how long does it really take to fall in love with someone? A minute? An hour? A day? A year? For me it took exactly one kiss.”

Layers of Her by Prescott Lane is a new, standalone contemporary romance with a sexy MMA twist. It is my favorite novel by this author. The expanse of emotions and strength of character in both the hero and heroine created an unending pull between my eyes and the page. It was amazing!

Campbell and Stone have come to know one another through the self-defense classes he teaches. There is an intense and undeniable attraction between them that neither are quite prepared for. But a special need in both of their lives brings the strands of their existance together and ties them to each other, setting the stage for a story that cannot be forgotten.

Layers of Her was a fabulous story of finding the place you’re meant to be and the heart you’re meant to hold. I loved it! There were so many sweet morsels in this book that MUST be experienced. My first mention has to be of an exceptional character in the book that could have uttered not a single word, and I would have been smitten with her all the same. She just made the book that much brighter, and the qualities she brought out in those around her was magical. I adored her and was giddy with happiness that Author Prescott Lane chose to include this special person into an already passion-filled story. In addition to this star of the story were the real hero and heroine. Stone was the perfect male character, strong, sweet, caring, gorgeous, and loyal. Campbell complemented Stone in every way. Although they both had their own past demons to deal with, their strengths became the theme of the story and was the cornerstone for their encounters and never-ending bond.

“We are our own worst enemies – the voices in our heads, our own thoughts, dreams, and nightmares are the most powerful opponents we will ever face.”

There were so many unexpected turns that the story took in surprising but realistic manners. I had numerous moments when I silently muttered “wow” and “no way” in my head as these scenes played out. Author Prescott Lane chose to write and and deal with some very disturbing parts of Campbell’s past that are, unfortunately, prevalent in our society. Her writing in this regard was direct and exposed, allowing for us to feel emotions that come with these situations, and then giving us hope. It was such a beautiful thing to watch as Campbell revealed, and Stone discovered, every complex layer of her, and brought them to the surface where healing was found. This was an exceptional escape that I highly recommend to all readers.

 

Letter from the Author

 

Rape. Just typing that word makes my gut tie up in knots. And that’s part of the problem.

Because it’s so uncomfortable, we don’t want to talk about it. So it gets buried at the bottom the newsfeed or forgotten altogether, like the backlog of untested rape kits.

 

Last March, I released Quiet Angel in which the heroine is a survivor of childhood sexual assault. A few weeks later, my husband became gravely ill, and we spent the rest of the year (5 long hospital stays and 4 long surgeries) fighting to regain his health. As I sat in the hospital chair next to his bed night after night, I got messages from women about how my book touched them. Some shared their reasons, and others didn’t.

 

I came to learn that April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. How could I not know that? just released a book on the very topic. Yet I didn’t see one post about it on any of my social

media accounts.

Early this year, I began writing Layers of Her with the intent to spread awareness and donate of April’s profits to charity. I was nervous when I started, and I still am. I mean, how much the profits be? Will readers assume I’m a survivor or I know one? Will I do the topic justice?

 

Why am I doing this? It’s a whole lot easier to stay silent. But that’s the whole problem, isn’t I work in a field, in the genre of fiction, that is mostly comprised of women, where sexual assault

is one of the most common tropes. And with each passing page, we pull for our broken heroes

and heroines to heal, find love, forge a new path. That’s all we want for them. We need to do same for the real life heroes and heroines, those brave souls who fight the real fight every single

day. So join me this April in making some noise to raise awareness, not only for the survivors

but for those who love them.
