H/h - Carter/Layla
Setting: Present time.
Read in April, 2015.
Just finished Taking the Fall: Vol. 2 by Alexa Riley. Have to say, I’m loving it so far, though Carter can go a little less Caveman-ish. Don’t get me wrong, I still think he’s H-O-T and I know he loves Layla despite everything, so that should be more than enough for me. Oh well, guess I shouldn’t be complaining as I had been warned in the blurb. :p
Layla’s infamous father hired Carter as her bodyguard when she was 16. They’ve been attracted to each-other ever since, though Carter is quite a bit (10 yrs. if I remember correctly) older than her. He wanted her but knew she’s too young to take this to the next level. Knowing that she feels the same didn’t work, but Carter was biding his time to make her his. One night changes it all. Something happens and throws Carter in jail 8 yrs. for manslaughter. The details of that night would escape Layla completely but no one told her exactly what happened. Not even Carter. When she finally escapes her a$$hole of a sire, 4 yrs. into Carter’s jail time, Layla goes to see him in hopes that he still feels the same about ‘them’. Unfortunately, she returns brokenhearted, as Carter acts as if he didn’t care any longer.
