Layers by Sigal Ehrlich
Publication date: October, 2013
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

According to Hayley love is a subject of ridicule, a myth created by hopeless romantics.

When Hayley makes a resolution to declare her loose lifestyle era R.I.P, it’s all good in theory…

That is until she meets Daniel Stark, a well-respected, mid-thirties business man who is known for his short temper, lack of steady relationships as well as his strict preserve of his private life.

Opinionated, sharp tongued Hayley accidently steps into his office leaving Daniel resolved to put Hayley in her place and have her in his bed.

Both Hayley and Daniel can’t avoid the immediate instigation of the attraction between them.

In a unanimously agreed upon verdict by Hayley and her two best friends, Ian the gay self-absorb, aspiring model and Natasha the witty, borderline neurotic soul mate, Daniel Stark is to be Hayley’s pure physical attraction, emotions aside era closure.

Will it indeed be a closure, or a beginning to something neither Hayley nor Daniel ever bargained for…




My thoughts (Theo~):
I do not think that I am able to
make a review for this book without sounding childish and extremely bad because
I feel that there are a lot of things that I should be able to say and I do not
find it very nice from my part to keep you so much in the dark, but you have –
no, scratch that – you must read this book in order to find yourself and live
as if there is always a Mr. Stark out there for you or for anyone you want to
This will make you probably hate me,
but I wish I could be more specific!
The characters
are absolutely stunning and amazing ‘persons’ that you would most definitely
fall in love with and that is because they are like you second “layer” or skin
of yourself! They lay there in your heart, branded by their own words to your
soul and just not letting you go of them!
Hayley is
someone strong and someone easy to read, yet beautifully put on to paper!
Someone to make you wish you were having at least one of her qualities or just
demand to be the one getting her some flaws straight. She is not your typical
one man woman, she loves to make herself feel good and try to bring people
understand her with just a few words! She is one woman that likes her one night
stands as much as you enjoy a good book or a good cup of coffee! She is not the
one to get attached because, hey, how many of us can say that they have had
never been in the situation of having a broken heart. She hates to lick her
wounds and pretend that everything is alright, because she does not let too many
people to come and get close. She is straight-forward, yet easy to understand.
She can make you chew your own socks or make you smile from the bottom of your
heart because she is special and worth chasing after!
But after an one night out with her
friends and getting herself losing a bet, running out of a cab because the
‘nice guy from the bar’ is not that nice and getting her first
sort-of-panic-attack, she is ready to accomplish her next step: losing like a
winner. She gets to accompany her friend on a company tour of the famous Stark
companies and pay for the getting drunk from the previous night.
Without any caffeine in her system
she joins Tasha to the tour, also applying her own CV even though she does not
want to work there! The tour is as boring as any tour and the constant sort of
apologies for Mr. Stark not having too much time to accompany them she decides
that a little bit of use for the company’s kitchen is in use and some good,
warm espresso is just what she wants. Letting the tour to go on she goes to the
beautiful kitchen and enjoys a nice way of making a good cup of coffee. She
almost ready to take her cup and leave when the damn thing decides that it is
time to stain her blouse and make a total fool of herself not even before she
gets to see the grumpy Mr. Stark and his precious fifteen minutes of presence.
Her words are leaving her mouth
before she can even think them and the way the mysterious man answers is just
as intriguing. She decides right then that the beautiful creature that stands
right in from of her is the most amazing person she ever met, yet she just met
him. When pleasantries are exchanged she is ready to leave, yet the
mysterious-careful man helps her with the stains. They sort of bad-mouth the so
called super-busy-to-be-here boss and then she leaves, yet the eyes of the
stranger are still there in her mind burning her brain and making her heart
Mr. StarkDaniel – is your typical boss: rough,
ready to move the world, someone you really do not want to share an argument
with, stubborn and most importantly – the mysterious stranger from the kitchen!
He is driven by his own rules and ready to take what he wants whenever he wants
it! He finds himself attracted to a woman he barely met in his own private
kitchen. He does believe that if the beauty has a face, she should be the only
one who could get this title and be the right choice! He is lonely and somehow
frightened, yet strong and not willing to lose his chance of seeing her again.
And that is why after her big failure of doing well on the interview he still
calls her back and wants her to join the company.
When she finally subsidies and goes
to the company, she is more than shocked to find out that her beautiful
stranger is actually the one and only Mr. Stark. She is more than shocked and a
lot of teasing goes on before she easily rejects his offer. Yet somehow she
decides that a coffee wouldn’t be that bad after he is persuading her on
accepting his proposal!
They do meet and the craziness does
begin. But it is one of those sweet crazy moments that you know are bad, but
you do not want them to be over. Ever.
There are moments when you are not
sure if Daniel is as good as you thought, but she is making him better! She
makes him see himself improved, better, as if she is his improved upgraded
model and he is reaching onto her to hold her tight and never letting go.
Her best friends are there and she
is as close to them as a family can be! They love each other and know each
other as the back of their own palms. Tasha
and Ian
are her best friends since forever and they have an enjoyable past.
They both are charismatic, always there and forever by her side! They know how
to entertain her, how to make her feel good even when the darkness does not
ceases to appear! They are her pillar and the comforter she needs when is truly
down and not ready to let go! And most importantly, they are not just some
background characters, they have their own life, their own problems and they do
make you want to look forward of their development during the book!
I’ve loved this book because of the
extraordinary ways of making me feel! I was going from mad to crazy in less
than 5.1 seconds, and I was enjoying every single minute! The sweet scenes
where as if I’ve just enjoyed an enormous chocolate cake and I was not feeling
bad about it at all!
Everything falls into place so easy,
as if it was meant to be from the very beginning!
I’ve fallen in love with this book
for the characters, for the action and for the amazing writing skills that the
author put into this book! It feels so real that you are almost at the edge
waiting to breathe in!

For a debut novel this is extremely
good and absolutely fabulous! I recommend it to everyone! Nothing too hard,
nothing too much, just plain life moments that might be everyone’s wish!

My rating:


By teen age, Sigal already lived in three different continents where she had the luck to experience and visit varied places, meet unique people, which only helped fuel her overly developed imagination. Currently, Sigal calls Estonia home where she lives with her husband and three kids.

Not exactly sure where they will end up next…

When she is not hiding in her office, writing, she enjoys music, reading and taking care of her little clan.

With a great believe in “don’t wait for things to happen – make them happen,” she enjoys anything exciting life has to offer.
