#Review – Caught in Us by Layla Hagen

Title:Caught in Us

Series:Lost Series

Author:Layla Hagen

Genre:Contemporary Romance




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

Caught in Us Cover


Bad boy falling for the good girl, not exactly a new type of love. Yet Caught it Us kept it fresh, just angsty enough, and created two main characters that you can’t help but love. Dani is smart and fights for what she believes in. She is the first to call out Damon on his behavior, and despite the fact she’s clearly attracted to him, she does not allow it to blind her to his shortcomings.

Damon’s attraction to the understated girl that’s all up in his face is not hard to understand either. She’s accepting and innocent, yet wouldn’t give him a free pass very easily. The one good thing in what he sees as a tormented life marred by a dark past.

Enter Dani’s parents, especially her father, who decide this love connection is not good for their daughter. Their plotting and planning is bound to yield some results and Dani and Damon might very well find themselves separated, forever. Will love, mutual trust, and actions meant to repair past mistakes win over the dubious, selfish meddling of adults? You’ll have to read to find out!
