Piper Skye is rock ‘n’ roll. She’s party all night, sleep all day. She’s get wild and be free.

Or she would be if she had the time.

And the energy.

And not being so awkward would probably help, too.

As the owner of a thriving dessert business, Piper spends her days at school and her nights elbow deep in batter and frosting. She’s confident her hard work and sacrifice will pay off as long as she stays focused and sticks to the plan.

Jake Hyde is a workaholic with a jaded outlook on life. Surrounding himself with employees he considers his brothers, he long ago made the decision that his custom garage would be his focus.

Fate, as it often does, has other ideas. Plus, a killer sense of humor.

Thrown together by coincidence, the gruff mechanic and the sweet as sin baker have instant sparks. Suddenly, all of their carefully made plans have taken a giant freakin’ left turn.

And they do it on the back of a Harley.

*Warning: This book is intended for adults. It contains frequent adult language and situations.

Don’t try this at home.

At least not without stretching first.

Maybe keep the sneakers on for traction, too.

Oooohhhh my living lanta y’all I loved the heck outta this book. This book falls into the rockabilly style that I personally love so much. The style of writing in this book came with its quirks but nothing that turned me off from obsessively reading it. From page one I was locked in for the long haul with only a 4 hour break to sleep, which I blame on the developed characters who were able infiltrate my brain giving me tunnel vision for nothing but this book. I’d never heard of Author Layla Frost until Goodreads got all up in my business and suggested I read Hyde & Seek and man am I glad I took that bit of advice. Layla has an interesting and like I mentioned before quirky way of writing and for me it really works. She was able to take me on a journey of bad assery proportions and all I can do is suggest you take the same journey through her unique writing style.

Piper Skye is bogged down with school and her growing cake business, with barely time to breathe meeting a guy isn’t on her radar but when you meet Jacoby ( Jake) Hyde maybe its time to throw caution to the wind. Piper is an amazing chick with her rocker style and owning who she is. She is confident, loyal, passionate  and all around sweetheart of a character. She has so much faith in who she is, its hard for her to accept that people might not trust her or her motives. All she can do is continue to do her and people will eventually see her for who she is and not who they think she is. Did I mention that Piper has style, this girl knows how to dress, if she actually existed she would be on my speed dial to help a girl out, No wonder Jake has the absolute hots for her.

There is nothing I love more than a tattooed, confident and gruff man. Seriously it gives me all the feels and more. I always get questions about my favorite male character and I’m here to say that Jake Hyde is up there with some of my favorites. First lets just address that hes obviously sexy as hell, but man oh man y’all he’s got green eyes which is almost like guy kryptonite for me. Beyond looks what won me over with Jake was his ability to grow throughout the story, even though he was true to himself he was able to give himself over to change. He was an alpha male absolutely and at times came off as an ass but lucky for Jake he’s got Piper who doesn’t have a problem with putting this alpha male in check.  Another thing Jake and Piper bring to the table is passion and sex so hot it would give hell a run for its money.

“You show up in my shop lookin’ good and wholesome in an outfit that should’ve turned me off but made my dick hard, thinkin’ of ways I wanted to corrupt you. Now I know under all that prim and proper was rock ‘n’ roll.”

These characters were just everything.. Not just our main characters ,but all of the characters  brought something more to this plot. They were there thru the whole story, which I really loved, it made it feel more believable to see how the ones we love and care about are there through the good and bad and how they help us along the way, even for the small moments.

“Sometimes the road to happily ever after isn’t smooth and easy. You have to fight through trials and obstacles to get there. There are dragons and big, bad wolves disguise to defeat. Riding in a carriage with a prince wouldn’t get you over those bumps and twists. Sometimes the road to your happily ever after is on the back of a bike with a badass knight that would kick the prince’s ass if he came near you.”

 I don’t know what else I can say about a book that brings you friendship, good music, hot men, baked goodies and even some mystery, other than read it. I promise you’ll thank me later.
