Reviewed by Talia Ricci



Laila Prescott is looking for her brother and needs the services of ex-boyfriend Matthew Hardin, a private investigator. When she comes face-to-face with Matthew once again, feelings she suppressed with their breakup come back to haunt her in the worst way.  It seems that no matter what her mind tells her, her heart and body refuse to listen.

Matthew Hardin refuses to look a gift horse in the mouth.  If Laila needs his services then she can very well pay for them Ė with cash, credit, or her very attractive and highly arousing body.  Matthew didnít have his fill of his former girlfriend, and figures there is no time like the present to get her out of his system.  Or so he thinks.

Reese Gabriel can take a total scoundrel and make him lovable and that is exactly what he has done in Lailaís Bargain.  I wanted Laila to tell Matthew to bugger off in no uncertain terms, but by the time I finished reading this novel, even I loved him.  His no nonsense persona and bad boy attitude just made this galís heart skip a few beats, not to mention the blushing along the way.

Lailaís Bargain is not as bondage oriented as most Reese Gabriel novels, but I take that as a positive.  This book shows Mr. Gabrielís ability to be versatile as an author and I, for one, am happy to reap the benefits of such a fun story.
