REVIEW – YOUR FIERCE LOVE (The Bennett Family, #7) by Layla Hagen


Clara Abernathy adores the Bennett family. After growing up in group homes, she yearns for the warmth and love of a family, and the Bennetts treat her like one of their own. So when Clara needs a temporary place to live, Blake Bennett suggests she move next door to him.
The offer is tempting. The problem? So is Blake himself. Handsome, funny, and alpha, he’s six feet two of eye candy… and his outlook on life is completely different from hers. But Clara finds it difficult enough to resist his charms at family events. How is she supposed to resist him when he’s just one wall away, and hell-bent on having her?
Blake Bennett knows family friends are off-limits for good reasons, and Clara is more off-limits than anyone else. But Blake went through life and made his fortune in the gastronomy industry by bending rules rather than following them. Clara’s sweetness and sass fill a hole in him he wasn’t even aware of. Soon he finds himself gravitating around her. He wants to have her and he will, rules be damned.
YOUR FIERCE LOVE is the seventh book in Layla Hagen’s Bennett Family series, but all books stand alone.

For those of you who enjoy a story with an abundance of steam and very little angst or drama, this book is for you. YOUR FIERCE LOVE is the seventh installment in the Bennett Family series and it revolves around Blake Bennett and Clara Abernathy.

Clara has been friends with Pippa and Summer for quite some time and is loved by the entire Bennett clan. They consider her an honorary member of the family, which means everything to her as she was orphaned at a very young age and grew up in the foster care system. Her earlier days were far from idyllic and she always longed for a loving family. Clara’s lease on her apartment ends in a couple of days and the condo she was supposed to move into is still under construction. Blake Bennett comes to her rescue when he offers her the apartment next to his which is above the bar he co-owns with his sister. The apartment is newly renovated and he offers her to stay as long as she wants–RENT FREE!! Clara is a little hesitant to accept because she doesn’t want to take advantage of Blake’s generosity but also she has had the biggest crush on him for quite some time and being that close in proximity to him could become a challenge for her.



While Clara thinks the attraction is one-sided, Blake has had a secret crush on her as well. He’s been known to be a huge player but that’s only because women have taken advantage of him for his wealth in the past. It’s caused him to be extra cautious with his personal relationships. As soon as Clara accepts his offer, he goes out of his way to make her feel at home and he also starts pursuing her romantically. He seems to have a one-track mind and it’s consumed with his fierce attraction towards Clara.

Blake has a serious challenge ahead of him as not everyone believes that his intentions towards Clara are honorable. His brothers and even Clara seem to think that this is just a passing fling and when things eventually come to an end between them, both Clara and the Bennett’s will lose a very special friendship. It’s going to take everything he’s got to prove to them all that he sees a forever kind of love with Clara.

Does this couple have what it takes to live out a happily ever after together?
