Book Review | Caught In Us by Layla Hagen


Dani Cohen knows Damon is trouble the second he walks in during senior year. He has bad boy written all over him. . .from his arrogant smirk to his perfectly toned abs. He is arrogant, intense, rebellious.

Dani has her future all planned out. She’s not the type to fall for a bad boy, no matter how panty-melting his grin is or how shamelessly he flirts. But something about Damon draws her in, awakening a desire she’s never felt. Slowly, she uncovers the secrets Damon hides: underneath his arrogance lies a tortured soul, his flirting smile masks despair.

Damon arrives in Dani’s life against his will. Carrying the scars of a dark past and facing an uncertain future, he knows he should stay away from her, but can’t. Her innocence consumes him, as does the desire to indulge in the passion igniting deep inside her.

An all-consuming bond blooms into a reckless love. But when mistakes from the past threaten their already fragile future, can their love survive?

A steamy and emotional full-length, standalone love story from the USA Today Bestselling author of Withering Hope.

Dani Cohen was a good girl – she has a rich family, great grades and a bright future ahead of her. She wasn’t the type of girl who will fall in love with a bad boy, no matter how shamelessly handsome he is. But who can resist Damon?
“It’s like since I moved here. I can’t breathe. Except when I’m with you.” 
Despite the arrogance Damon projects, Dani always knew there was something good in him. She believed in that and she believes what he felt for her is real. Even with all the baggage from his past and from his present, she just knew that Damon was worth it.

“You made all the firsts extraordinary.”

And even though Damon wanted her to stay away from her because he was no good, she wouldn’t let him, and he couldn’t do it. She was the best thing that every happen to him. Will their love be enough to heal each other?

The pace of the story was perfect. The relationship was not pushed – I was glad that it started with friendship, and progressed into something more. The chemistry between them was undeniably and was sizzling hot. I love how they tried to stay together, and how they fought for each other. Nothing beats true love, not even manipulation or separation.

I can’t help but love every page and fall in love not just with the characters and their strengths, the changes in them that was caused by love, but with the plot itself. After the emotional roller coaster Withering Hope brought me, I’m glad Layla Hagen made this breather. It’s a lighter read compare to her last novel, and yet it is still filled with a whole lot of heart and emotion, and of course, let’s not forget a dash of steam!
“You are the first woman who made me feel alive, the first one I’ve fallen in love with. And you will be the last one.”

My name is Layla Hagen and I am a New Adult Contemporary Romance author.

I fell in love with books when I was nine years old, and my love affair with stories continues even now, many years later.

I write romantic stories and can’t wait to share them with the world.

And I drink coffee. Lots of it, in case the photo didn’t make it obvious enough
