Now and Again by Brenda Rothert
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
After working hard and pushing others around to get what she has wanted her whole life, Layla comes to the point where she realizes some things can't be forced – like love. She decides she needs to take a step back and reevaluate her priorities, and when she does she realizes she doesn't like the person she has become. After taking a hiatus from her life, or at least her dating life, she starts to see things clearly for the first time.
I liked this story even more than Emma's, mostly I think because of the drastic change in Layla. In the beginning she was still the slutty bitch she had been in Now and Then, but over the course of the story we got to watch her grow as a person and watch as her personality morphed into someone she was comfortable with and eventually liked. I really hated her in the first book, hated the way she treated others, her sister, and herself. By the end of this book, she was my favorite sister. I also loved Ben. Super sexy, a successful career, and not afraid to go after what he wants…what's not to like?
The sexy banter between Layla and Ben was so much fun and had me laughing a few times. Additionally, the sexual tension in this book was off the charts.
The only thing that disappointed me about this book was Cole. I loved him in book one, but for some reason, though we didn't see a lot of him, he was pretty much a jerk in this book. I'm hoping that will be explained more in book three and he can come to terms with whatever his problem is with Ben. I am looking forward to reading the last book in this series.
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
