Layers Peeled - By Lacey Silks (Review)

Layers Trilogy Series - Book 2 
New life binds them,
Past ghosts haunt her,
Fresh secrets distract him,
...and history repeats itself.
Allie, a rookie cop hired and desired by a private investigator, is about to knock the wind out of Tristan with the biggest news of her life... ... right after the announcement that he fired her sinks in.
Tristan, the owner of Cross Enterprises, has a few surprises for Allie as well. And she won’t see them coming.
While the couple tries to deal with their predicament and growing romance, ghosts from Allie's past haunt her, slowly calculating the timing of their return.
With new assignments distracting Tristan, fate has stacked a threat against them. Can Allie and Tristan peel away their protective layers for long enough to see the danger brewing at their doorstep? If they don't work together, trusting and sharing information, it may be too late.
And history may repeat itself.
1 out of 5 stars
Well I am done with this series. I still don't believe in their relationship, maybe I'm just a grouchy young skeptic. There was no development or growth as a couple or as characters. They jumped in and out of bed with each which is all fun in games but I was horrified to realize that Allie was a cop. How could I forget that the main character was a cop?! Well, because it's barely mentioned outside of all the sexy time and unnecessary drama between Allie and Tristan. Allie continues to jump to illogical conclusions and it comes across as exaggerated and unbelievable. She's obviously an intelligent woman so why does she continue to act like she hasn't got two brain cells to rub together and everything is a soap opera drama opportunity? Beyond that the plot was predictable and I am unimpressed. I had hoped in this novel I would get to understand Allie and Tristan better but I just ended up more irate at insta-love and theatrics. On the plus side there was no cliffhanger ending.
