The Bennett Family, book 1


Sebastian Bennett is a determined man. It’s the secret behind the business empire he built from scratch. Under his rule, Bennett Enterprises dominates the jewelry industry. Despite being ruthless in his work, family comes first for him, and he’d do anything for his parents and eight siblings—even if they drive him crazy sometimes. . . like when they keep nagging him to get married already.

Sebastian doesn’t believe in love, until he brings in external marketing consultant Ava to oversee the next collection launch. She’s beautiful, funny, and just as stubborn as he is. Not only is he obsessed with her delicious curves, but he also finds himself willing to do anything to make her smile.
He’s determined to have Ava, even if she’s completely off limits.

Ava Lindt has one job to do at Bennett Enterprises: make the next collection launch unforgettable. Daydreaming about the hot CEO is definitely not on her to-do list. Neither is doing said CEO. The consultancy she works for has a strict policy—no fraternizing with clients. She won’t risk her job. Besides, Ava knows better than to trust men with her heart.

But their sizzling chemistry spirals into a deep connection that takes both of them by surprise. Sebastian blows through her defenses one sweet kiss and sinful touch at a time. When Ava’s time as a consultant in his company comes to an end, will Sebastian fight for the woman he loves or will he end up losing her?

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.

{ review } .

When this series was first announced, I was ECSTATIC. I love series that follow families and the larger the family, the better. Well, the Bennett's are 9-kids deep, so this series has the opportunity for a lot of longevity behind it. Of the girls, I think Pippa will be my favorite story, but she has some healing to do. Besides, I don't imagine her brothers are going to allow her to date again anytime soon...

I digress. This book. Sebastian and Ava.

Growing up one of nine, Sebastian understood the financial struggles his parents went through. On the promise of a prayer, his parents sold the family ranch to give him start up money for a high-end jewelry company -- and it certainly paid off. Now Sebastian is wealthy and most of the Bennetts work with the company in some form or another. Sebastian refuses to take all the credit for it, regardless of the tabloids doing just that -- showcasing what a down to earth guy this Bennett is (further showcased by his generosity).

Ava comes to the company as a temp, more or less, working for a marketing company that Bennett Enterprises employs for their latest campaign. When Ava and Sebastian (and Logan, too) first meet, she's extremely professional, but manages to let loose just a bit when Sebastian and Logan show that it's ok. Like the marketing team there, I fell in love with Ava.

Both Ava and Sebastian were strong characters. Both had independent natures and were of strong mind, showcasing their talents throughout the pages. Their journey was a fun one to read, and a great introduction to this series. I've not read a Layla Hagen title previously, but I found her writing style to be just the type that I can get on board with, and read the stories again and again.

Get ready for Logan Bennett!

The Bennett Family, book 2

Logan Bennett knows his priorities. He is loyal to his family and his company. He has no time for love, and no desire for it. Not after a disastrous engagement that left him broken-hearted. When Nadine enters his life, she turns everything upside down. She’s sexy, funny, and utterly captivating. She’s also more stubborn than anyone he’s met. . .including himself. 

Nadine Hawthorne is finally pursuing her dream: opening her own clothing shop. After working so hard to get here, she needs to concentrate on her new business, and can’t afford distractions. Not even if they come in the form of Logan Bennett. He’s handsome, charming, and doesn’t take no for an answer. After bitter disappointments, Nadine doesn’t believe in love. But being around Logan is addicting. It doesn’t help that Logan’s family is scheming to bring them together at every turn. 

Their attraction is sizzling, and their connection—undeniable. Slowly, Logan wins her over. What starts out as a fling soon spirals into much more than they are prepared for. 

When a mistake threatens to tear them apart, will they have the strength to hold on to each other?
