Disaster of the Otherworld, 2

Layla is a human.

In the Northern Forest Pack, humans are tolerated, but not exactly … loved. After her best friend is mated to the alpha, Layla doesn’t know where her place is anymore. She is aware the pack is in a lot of danger, certainly her best friend. Disaster of the Otherworld is a cult intent on destroying everyone and everything for power. She does have one little secret. Every night, she goes out to find him.

Alexander knows he shouldn’t be tempted by the little human. He is a very old vampire and he doesn’t know what it is about the young woman, but he can’t seem to get enough of her. He has extended his stay at the pack to help protect it. The cult is a danger to them all, and he is willing to offer his services to help destroy them.

Disaster of the Otherworld is after something important. The moment they harvest it, they can finally take complete power. There is only one problem—they don’t know who holds the power.

In the Northern Forest Pack there is a secret. One that has been kept for over twenty-one years. Layla is not all what she seems. Her true parents made the ultimate sacrifice to keep her safe. She is special. Will it be too late to save her?


Alexander didn’t like that this Lewis had annoyed her enough to make her shake. He saw it in her hands, and he quickly moved toward her and pulled her into his arms. If she wanted him to stop, all she had to do was say the words.

Layla surprised him even more by wrapping her arms around him, and then pressing her face against his chest.

“Tell me if you want me to stop,” she said.

He chuckled. “I believe that is supposed to be my line seeing as I’m the one hugging you, my sweet.”

“I don’t mind.” She nuzzled her face against his chest and he was pretty sure she breathed him in. “You smell good.”

This did make him laugh.

“I’m pleased you think so.”

Layla sighed and then pulled her head back. “Do you think we could go for a walk? Or something?”

He had a feeling she needed to keep moving.

“Yes.” He held out his hand and expected her to decline, but this little human surprised him by sliding her hand within his own.

She was just full of surprises tonight.

Tightening his grip around her hand, they walked down the path. Alexander had explored the Northern Forest Pack’s land. They were not too far from a lake that was close to the edge. Humans frequented the spot as it was beautiful, but it was also far enough away from Grace Hill.

He didn’t think he could take Layla there tonight and with the threat of the Disaster of the Otherworld, he wasn’t interested in putting her life in danger. So, walking around the forest, enjoying her company would have to do.

“So, er, you know it’s close to the full moon,” she said.

“Yes.” Charles had reminded him once again that they were going to have to stay indoors during that night.

He wasn’t interested in spending the night with the man who was a constant bore. All Charles wanted to do was kidnap Crazy Lizzie and that would never be on his agenda. He liked the strange little witch. After everything she had been through, he’d seen her ability to smile and maybe it was strange to think about, but the woman gave him hope. Even during times of war and great despair, Crazy Lizzie always came out smiling, thriving. There were also rumors that when she was being tortured, she laughed at her tormentors, even mocked them, but again, they were just rumors.

“How will you spend the full moon?” she asked.

“By staring outside and wondering how you’re doing.”

“You’ll be thinking about me?”

“Of course. I do spend a lot of my day curious about what you’re doing.”

This made Layla stop and he followed suit, looking at her.

“I had no idea you thought about me.”

Alexander knew this was dangerous. As a vampire, he was considered intoxicating to humans, and he could play on that to get anything he wanted. When it came to Layla, he’d not used any kind of enthrallment. For one, he’d promised Brandon he wouldn’t harm anyone in his pack, and he stuck by his word. Second, he hadn’t used his enthrallment in close to a century. Once you realized people were only around you because you forced them, it long lost its charm, and that was what happened to him.

Everything Layla was feeling, was what she felt. Nothing else.

“How could I not think about you?” he asked. “You’re an incredibly beautiful woman.”

He saw the way her cheeks heated. His words had embarrassed her a little. No, not embarrassed, he’d made her blush. It had been a long time since he’d made a woman blush, without intention.

“I’m not.”

She shook her head.

He closed that distance between them and without thinking, he brushed aside her long hair. Tonight, she’d kept it down, and he thought it looked even more stunning than ever. Staring into her eyes, a strange feeling came over him. It was like he was looking into the eyes of an old soul. Someone who’d been around for almost as long as him. That couldn’t be. This woman was very much a human.

He remembered over the years, people saying similar words, how people had been on the earth before. Alexander had no real concept of whether there was a chance for people to come back or have multiple lives.

“I’m going to kiss you,” he said.

Layla's Choice Book 2 of Disaster of the Otherworld by Sam Crescent The story and characters were well written and developed. I enjoyed the drama, chemistry and journey. Great read.

Written by JustMe83 on 2nd Oct 2023

So good!!! I did not read the book before this but I honestly don't think it took anything away from this one. Yea they mentioned things from the first but I didn't feel like I was lost from not knowing it. I absolutely adore Alexander, ugh, swoon! Honestly he is now up there with all time favorite vampires. He was perfect. And Layla when she came into her own holy shite. I sat up straighter and was so here for it! And then he got to see the strength he always knew was there which was so cool to see. Absolutely loved them!

Paranormal romance

Layla is a human living with the Northern Forest Pack. Her best friend is mated to a shifter and she is lonely and looking for her place, then she meets Alexander who is a vampire who is also protecting the Pack. I enjoyed this book and you should definitely read it

Great Book
Written by Jeanne R on 2nd Oct 2023

I've read a lot of books written by Sam Crescent; she is one of my favorite authors. I can’t wait to read more of her books. This is the second book in the Disaster of the Otherworld Series; The story is about Layla & Alexander; she’s human; he’s a vampire and knows he should stay away from her. The pack is in danger but no one knows who holds the secret they are searching for. I received a free copy of this book via booksprout and I’m voluntarily leaving a review.

Absolutely Brilliant
Written by SerenNos on 2nd Oct 2023

I loved this book from start to finish. It has everything a prophecy a FL who finds her true self and a battle between good and evil. The parts I loved the most is the true strong friendship between Elle and Layla. The best part was the realtionship between Layla and Alexander and watching their love grow and seeing how much they mean to each other. I hope there's another book after this one to see how Layla grown A Must Read for everyone.

Layla's Choice!
Written by Mary on 2nd Oct 2023

This is a great read! Very addictive and captivating, so much so I could not put it down. This is the second story in the "Disaster of the Otherworld" series but can be enjoyed as a stand alone. There are connected characters and a connected threat. This one is about Layla, and Alexander, ancient vampire. She is young and innocent human living with the Northern Forest Pack in Grace Hill. She works at the local dinner with her best friend Elle. They were two of the few humans living with the pack. She was feeling out of sorts and alone. She began sneaking out at night to meet Alexander. He had remained in Grace Hill because he was drawn to the place and was warned the cult was still a threat. He was also drawn to Elle, she was different. He just did not know how different she was or what she would become to him. I loved the characters!!! Elle becomes determined and a force to be reckoned with. Alexander was always protective, honest and loving with Elle. Such a great paranormal read with some mystery, suspense, action, danger, passion, steam, loyalty and love. I need to back track and pick up the first one in the series to read.

This choice was amazing!! Loved Layla and Alexander!!
Written by Brooke T on 2nd Oct 2023

I haven’t read a good vampire romance in a long time. I was burned out on the vampire romance once all the movies and shows came out. I watched for the werewolf’s and witches instead. I love Sam Crescent’s other PNR books and I loved the first book in this series so I jumped at the chance to read this book. I was totally blown away and absolutely loved this book!!! The storyline is original, beautifully written, and captivating from the beginning to end. I was on the edge of my seat and biting my nails through this book. The characters were complex and had amazing chemistry. Layla was a BAB!!! I loved her growth throughout this book. She was kind, loyal, and a firecracker. Alexander was a refreshing vampire. He was loyal, protective of Layla and deemed to keep her safe. I thought their push and pull was angsty and hot. Their chemistry was a mystery to them. I loved the twists and turns that Sam Crescent woke into this story.

Layla's Choice
Written by AngelaC on 2nd Oct 2023

I really liked Alexander. His steadfastness and quietness allowed Layla to have the confidence to discover her secrets and make choices that she otherwise never would have thought about.

“It was like he was looking into the eyes of an old soul.”
Written by Anij on 2nd Oct 2023

Well, it took ten years for us to finally get the follow-up to the first book in the series, The Alpha Takes a Mate. While I’m happy we finally know what happens next, I have to admit, this story wasn’t as good as the first one was, even though the actual writing is better. The chemistry between Layla and Alexander wasn’t as intense and even the action was somewhat flat considering what was going on. And no, I’m not discussing the details. I don’t want to spoil the story. While Layla and Alexander’s love story has the HEA ending this is clearly not the end of the series as Disaster of the Otherworld is still a threat to the world. I’m not sure who the next book will focus on, perhaps Lewis or Brandon’s beta, Drake, who was oddly only a minor character in this book. I’m sort of hoping for it to be Darcy as I think he’s actually the more interesting of Brandon’s best friends. Whoever it ends up being I just hope we don’t have to wait another ten years to find out what happens next. Three and a half stars, I’m rounding up because I really liked Alexander and because Crazy Lizzie is such a hoot!

Loved it!!

I love author Sam Crescent's books and have been looking forward to this volume. And now you're stuck with your book from the beginning. Highly recommended.

She protects all
Written by DeeMac on 2nd Oct 2023

Layla is just human, a no one within the pack. But she is best friends with the Alpha’s new mate. Disaster for the Otherworld has made it known they’re coming and something big is going down. Layla befriends the ancient vampire who has come to help. Alexander is drawn to the little human. Neither expected the amazing things about to unfold. A vampire finds his mate, a new power comes to protect the living, factions work together and a girl gets more than she ever dreamed of. Action-filled, magical, steamy and a great HFN/HEA.

Sweet, sexy magic
Written by Reensburger on 2nd Oct 2023

We met Layla and Alexander in the last Disaster of the Otherworld book, and now it's their turn to find love and stop the inevitable. Now that's Laylas best friend Elle has found her mate Layla is feeling a little out of sorts. She's a human among the wolves and isn't sure how she quite fits in anymore. Her and Alexander have forged a sweet friendship however neither can stop thinking of the other. Full moon comes and with it so does the prophecy of someone who is going to be the savior of the pack, if only Layla can figure out how. Her and Alexander's love story is so sweet, but don't let think that it isn't steamy, because it is. Alexander finally finds his perfect mate after a millenia of looking, back can he keep her safe?

Written by Redfaeryrose on 2nd Oct 2023

This is the second part in a series and is a standalone. I haven't read the first book yet, but I can still appreciate the story. Everyone is stressed out by the looming threat from the cult that plans to destroy them. Then there's that great revelation, a secret that has long been kept, and our power couple. The love between the MCs in the story is the light in the dark and gloomy atmosphere. It's a happy for now ending and the story has left some things unresolved. I guess it will continue on to the next story.

Layla & Alexander
Written by Babs on 2nd Oct 2023

The second book in the Disaster of the Otherworld series, vampire Alexander and Layla's story. the story is well written with drama, suspense, surprises, twists, turns and romance. The story held my interest until the end. I received a copy of this book via Evernight and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Alexander and Layla
Written by casvec on 2nd Oct 2023

This is a good story with several twists, turns and uncovered secrets. Alexander and Layla's seem to be an unlikely pair, but as their connection grow and things heat up so does the suspense of the story. Enjoyed this book.

The best choice!
Written by The Voracious Reader on 2nd Oct 2023

Choosing has never been so hard or...easy? I was loving the interplay between characters because it was so real.

Written by bookfever52 on 2nd Oct 2023

Layla and Alexander. Shes human and hes a vampire. Hes at the pack to help protect it from the cult. If the pack falls all is lost. Layla meets Alexander at night. Neither of them understand the pull to each other. But Layla has a secret that even she doesnt know. Only her parents know. Alexander must save the underworld and Layla. Another great story in this series.

Written by ShibaMAma4Emi! on 2nd Oct 2023

Layla is a 21 year old human whereas Alexander is a vampire at least a century old. They're fated mates, but how could that be?? Read on to find the truth of why they're meant to be together. I loved this couple -- how they are in the way they love and support each other. There are so many dark romances where the main lead romantic characters are morally compromised, but Layla's Choice is not one of them. Alexander, being over a century old, is going through the motions of life. He interacts with the Northern Forest Pack but is on the fringes of the community. It takes meeting Layla to spark back his interest to live and appreciate what's around him. As for Layla, her sweetness is a good foil for Alexander. Their sexy times are steamy!! Boy, Alexander has a mouth on him! (fans self). However, it's balanced nicely with a good plot and well-developed secondary characters. I've read several of Sam Crescent's books. So far, this one is my favorite.

Great paranormal read
Written by LestWITCH on 2nd Oct 2023

Layla's Choice is a great read. Witches, shifters, vampires what could go wrong. Layla and Alexander grow as friends and so does their characters. I absolutely love Crazy Lizzie.

Great Addition to the Series
Written by tburbr on 2nd Oct 2023

Sam Crescent has worked her magic and hit another home run with this second installment of Disaster of the Otherworld. The characters were as endearing as they were entertaining. I can't wait to see what happens next.

Loved it!
Written by Flavia K on 2nd Oct 2023

I really like this series. It has good characters, a very good story, with a little bit of everything, suspense, intrigue, passion, courage, spicy scenes. And I am fascinated by the environment, the atmosphere where everything happens is amazing.

Layla & Alexander
Written by Shell R on 2nd Oct 2023

This was a pretty good paranormal story. Layla is a human living with the Northern Forest Pack. Her bestie has found her place in the pack but Layla isn't having any luck. Then enters Alexander the vampire and he is a breathe of fresh air. Will their connection survive the Disaster of the Otherworld war? Enjoy ?

Paranormal Romance
Written by Samkat on 2nd Oct 2023

Layla’s best friend is a part of the Northern Forest Pack since she is mated to the alpha. Layla is welcome in the pack but because she’s human, it’s not the same as if she was a shifter. Now that her best friend is busy being mated, she’s lonely and looking for a connection. She finds that with Alexander. Alexander is a vampire and he’s helping to protect the pack. Layla is the ultimate distraction and he shouldn’t want her but he does. This was a good paranormal romance with good world building. There’s a full plot within this paranormal world as well as romance. Very enjoyable.

Written by KMH on 2nd Oct 2023

Amazing continuation of this series and I cannot wait to see what she comes up with next! I liked how this book had intense moments, hot moments and moments when you didn't know what yo expect!! This author has such a great way of delivering her stories!!

Danger, secrets and steam!
Written by Rowena on 2nd Oct 2023

Danger, secrets and steam! Book two in the Disaster of the Otherworld series, gives its readers Alexander and Layla's story. His a vampire and she’s human or is she? Secrets come alive as Alexander and Layla’s romance heat up, but will they be able to find their HEA when Disaster of the Otherworld discover her location and come for her? One click to find out in this newest release that doesn’t disappoint. I loved the fast paced storyline and the characters chemistry that ends with a HEA.

Better than the first
Written by ObsessiveReader on 2nd Oct 2023

I have read the first book several times and liked it, however, this one was a better read. Layla isn't interested in being a notch on some wolf's bedpost. When Alexander arrives to help save Elle, he sticks around for Layla. There is just something about her he is drawn to. Turns out Layla is more than anyone knew and she isn't an ordinary human. Alexander does what he can to protect her. They make a good couple together.

Intriguing and engaging
Written by LBing on 2nd Oct 2023

This was such an intriguing paranormal romance and I love how this story totally caught me up with such an unexpected story. Layla is so much more than she knew, and her mating with Alexander, a vampire, was a surprise to both of them ;) His love, though, empowered her and hers gave him a reason to continue in his long life. Expect a wild reading ride full of twists, fab character development and an engaging plot. I really enjoyed how this one unfolded and can't wait for more :D

another great book in the series
Written by Thisbe on 2nd Oct 2023

I am a fan of her books and this is no difference. It is the second in the series and can be read on its own, but it adds more depth to the story and characters if you have read the first one. Layla and Alexander are both great written characters, as all the others in this story. But I enjoyed their development and how they are with each other. Always waiting for the next one.

Layla and Alexander
Written by Booklover1975vnc on 2nd Oct 2023

I really enjoyed reading about Alexander and Layla. She is a human living amoung wolf shifters and feels out of place. It gets worse when her best friend marries the Alpha of the pack. She feels like she doesn’t belong being the only human in the pack. Alexander is a vampire who falls for her and discovers a little secret about Layla. Is she really just a normal human? Or something more? Loved it.

I enjoyed this so much that I could have read it again and again. The story was awesome and the characters were awesome. It was such a great read.

Fabulous book
Written by Nikki R on 2nd Oct 2023

This was an intriguing paranormal love story. I was enthralled immediately. There is something special about Layla. She is supposedly human but she just feels restless. Alexander who is a vampire is drawn to her. My first clue that Layla was different was when she heard Alexander’s approach at the lake. Even he was shocked. The other clue is that her parents are just weird. The truth about Layla’s background is revealed. She is afraid but not for herself. She fears for the safety of her friends and family and for Alexander who is her mate. She feels like she is a liability when in reality she is an asset. Layla has to learn to embrace her heritage and her power. She has to let go of her fears because it’s holding her back. She has to embrace her love and connection to Alexander because it will set her free. I must say that I thoroughly loved this story. Alexander was just existing until Layla. She gave him a reason to live again. His love gave her power. Power to believe in herself and her abilities.

Finding the unexpected
Written by A Schofield on 2nd Oct 2023

I would recommend to go back and read the first book in the series -The Alpha takes a mate - as this will give you a backstory as to why the main characters are there. You don’t have to, but it makes reading this book so much better. Layla wants to find the one but she never expected to find that in Alexander. Layla grows in this book from being hesitant to being more self assured. All she need is the backing that confidence bring from her mate. It was great to see her growth and change. Alexander is a 1000 year old vampire who was the perfect gentleman. There were some funny moments, mostly from Crazy Lizzie and they made me chuckle. This book was slightly different from her normal character but was still just as good. I hope there is more to come in this series as I have enjoyed both books so far.

Written by Sua on 2nd Oct 2023

I love reading about the characters and their thoughts and feelings when it came to the drama and danger they had to face. Every moment of this couple’s story just kept me wanting to see what would happen next.

Really enjoyable characters and world
Written by EPM on 2nd Oct 2023

I do love Sam Crescent books, my favourite tend to be mafia/bravata type, however I really, really enjoyed this book. I did read the first book in the series (The Alpha Takes A Mate) before Layla's Choice, you could read Layla's Choice by itself, but you have more depth and understanding of the world as a whole, as well as the main characters if you read them in order. I loved how Layla grew and developed in the book, from being uncertain about herself and her place in the world to a strong women, who will do whatever it takes to protect her loved ones. Also, I really like Alexander, who was such a gentleman - a bit different to most of Sam's main male characters that ai have read who are often "less than gentlemen" (though, there is nothing wrong with either type, just a nice change). Crazy Lizzie is an hilariously awesome character, loved some of her one liners / jokes. Eg often referring to Alexander, a powerful and respected 1000 year old vampire as "fang boy". I hope there are more books to come in this world (maybe with less than 10 years between them!).

A sweet paranormal romance with a twist
Written by Sarah ES on 2nd Oct 2023

Okay so this book wasn’t just romance, it was also about a girl finding out who and what she really is and learning how to control herself!! This book was also about finding love and protecting those that fall into that category. Very good book, but I wished I had read the rest of the series as I was lost a little during some of the scenes with reference to past event.

Alexander and Layla
Written by SeahawkGirl on 2nd Oct 2023

This is the second book in the Disasters of the Otherworld series. I was not familiar with the first book and had to go back and purchase it since I wanted to read them in order. This book is about the Alpha's mate's best friend, Layla. Layla has secretly been meeting with Alexander. He is a vampire who is working with the pack to help stop the Disasters of the Otherworld group. Alexander learns that Layla's parents are not what they seem. Her parents had been killed and asked the current parents to protect Layla. Layla has a special purpose and can help stop the Disasters. She and Alexander work together to protect the pack and save the world. This was an enjoyable story and it was great to see a continuation of the first book.

Written by Andrea R on 2nd Oct 2023

This book was highly anticipated (the first book in this series was written a long while ago) but when you start turning the pages you are completely sucked in and it is like there was never a gap in it. I simply LOVED this book--it is such a great series from a truly amazing author (seriously I have read everything she has written--love every story) and this book is fantastic.

Wish I could give it more than a 5 score
Written by Jill G on 2nd Oct 2023

WOW! I believe this is the best book I have read by Crescent. It grabbed my attention at the begging and held it until the very end. It is full of action and is fast paced. A threat from the Disaster of the Otherworld has brought about powers that have laid dormant in Layla for years and she has now become a force to be reckoned with. Alexander, a vampire is her mate and she will do everything in her power to protect him, her friends and the pack. It’s an excellent story that I absolutely loved. There are other characters who add greatly to the story and I especially liked Crazy Lizzie. This is a story that is definitely worth reading. I sincerely hope there is another story coming that ties in with this one. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and are voluntarily leaving a review.

Layla and Alexander
Written by Bobcat on 2nd Oct 2023

Layla's Choice is the second book in the Disaster of the Otherworld series. I had to go back and reread the first since I bought it in 2018. I liked both characters, especially Layla. She had a very strong inner quiet self-esteem I can appreciate. Since this book basically picks up where the last left off, it's more of a HFN ending. I'm hoping the third book comes sooner than the second.

A great continuance of this series!
Written by Laura S. on 2nd Oct 2023

Great characters, fun interactions here and there to keep the story from getting too serious, and a yummy hero with a no-nonsense heroine makes for a good story! Add in characters from book 1, and we can see the pack and the environment still growing strong! A good page turner with twists and turns throughout the story makes this an enjoyable read.

Loved it
Written by RhondaVB on 2nd Oct 2023

It's been 10 years since the first book came out and if I'm honest, I didn't remember a lot of it, but I do remember Layla! This is her story and I really enjoyed it! Even though I had forgotten what happened in the first book, I was still easily able to catch on to what was going on. I love vampires so Alexander was it for me! These two together were hot and when secrets are revealed, it gets really, really good! Can't wait for more in this world!

Layla and Alexander are great together
Written by Bookbunny on 2nd Oct 2023

This continues after “Alpha Takes a Mate.” In that story Layla had a crush on Lewis, Brandon’s friend and her BFF Elle’s mate. But things aren’t the same. She realized that she only saw him as a friend. With Alexander she feels more. But would a vampire really want to have a relationship with her? Alexander has been alive for a thousand of years. He never expected to find his true mate. He doesn’t want to hurt Layla but there is something that keeps drawing them together. I have to say I love this story. We learn that Layla’s past is not what she thought. Her parents, who she really is, and what the future holds is a total surprise. You wouldn’t have thought that but WOW. And I do love that Alexander is as normal as he can be. When do you read that a vampire likes a little garlic in his food, FOOD? He actually eats. These two are great. I love their story. But the Disaster of the Otherworld is coming. There is a war and they have got to be ready. I wonder who will be next to joy our group. And Crazy Lizzie, she is a hoot.

Written by Diana A on 2nd Oct 2023

I didn't see this coming, a great white power and a vampire. It has a great story and plot. And of course love and action.

Amazing series!
Written by Mary S on 2nd Oct 2023

Disaster of The Otherworld was an amazing series. Layla and Alexander had so much to fight for and so much to protect. They were a wonderful couple. And I will definitely be reading more of this series.

Layla's Choice
Written by mysticbaby1991 on 2nd Oct 2023

It's been 10 L-O-N-G years awaiting for Sam Crescent to give us the next book in the Disaster of the Otherworld series. I've begged and asked and now that we've been granted the next one, I'm so sad I read it too fast!! Layla's book was everything I could've wanted and more. It definitely didn't go the way I thought this story was going to go, especially given how the ending of the first book was with Layla having a crush on Lewis. Who would've thought that two "human" women would be at the center of the prophecy for the Northern Pack? I use human in quotes, because once you read this book you will understand. I love that throughout the book it is mentioned throughout that the supernatural beings all typically keep to themselves and their own groups. But the Northern Pack is slowly integrating other beings throughout to help protect everyone. PLEASE DON'T MAKE ME WAIT ANOTHER 10 YEARS FOR THE NEXT ONE!

This pack has been tough on humans, as we knew from Elle's story, and things haven't changed much. Layla still has to deal with the fact that she's human in a paranormal world, but this is her home and she loves everything about it, even if it's not returned. Then one day, she finds out that she's not at all what she thought she was. Her journey of discovery is not a solo one - her best friend, her pack, a crazy witch, and a sweet vampire are all there to support her. I thoroughly enjoyed the tale and can't wait to see what is next for the pack.

Great story

Layla's Choice
Written by Karen99 on 2nd Oct 2023

Ooh Secrets Were About To Be Revealed! Layla wasn’t what she seemed, there were so many secrets which were about to come out into the open. The Cult were on their way looking for a specific power but no-one knew what this power was! Alexander, an old Vampire had stayed behind to look over the pack and protect it but he cannot get Layla out of his mind and every night they meet, he keeps telling himself it will be the last. Layla keeps sneaking off to meet Alexander, for some reason she cannot resist meeting him, there was something about him that kept her going back and the suppressed passion she had for him kept getting stronger. An action packed, page-turning steamy read with lots of surprises along the way, a credit to Ms Crescent’s style of writing. Recommended Read!

This story is a continuation of the first book and contains mention of events from that book. I have not read the first book yet but was able to pretty much figure the storyline out. It does end with the Disaster of the Otherworld still being present. The characters are good, the romance and heat are high. Should be an interesting series.

Great quick read

Loved Layla’s Choice. I really liked Layla and Alexander’s relationship, you could really feel how much he cared for her. You also felt how much Layla wanted to find her soulmate and I adored how strong she was at keeping her own goals in mind. Like how she couldn’t be persuaded to seek something with Lewis because she wanted to wait for the one. The suspense and twist in this was also great, and I was quite surprised by how much I ended up liking Lewis. He was alright in the end.
