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?

About YOUR FIERCE LOVE

The strong and sexy Blake Bennett is downright irresistible. And Clara Abernathy is doing everything she can to resist his charm.

After spending her life in group homes, Clara yearns for the love and warmth of a true family. With the Bennetts treating her like their own, she can’t possibly fall for Blake. That would be crossing a line…

But when Clara needs a temporary place to live, and she accepts Blake’s offer to move next door to him, things escalate. Suddenly, she’s not only supposed to resist the man who’s hell-bent on having her, but the TV station she works for is determined to dig up some dirt on the Bennett family.

Blake knows family friends are off-limits, and Clara is more off-limits than anyone. But Clara’s sweetness and sass fill a hole in him he wasn’t even aware of. Soon, he finds himself gravitating toward her, willing to do anything to make her happy.

Blake enjoys bending the rules—much more than following them, but will bending this one be taking it too far?

REVIEW – YOUR ALLURING LOVE (The Bennett Family, #6) by Layla Hagen

SYNOPSIS

Alice Bennett has been holding a torch for her older brother’s best friend, Nate, for more than a decade. He’s a hotshot TV producer who travels the world, never staying in San Francisco for too long. But now he’s in town and just as tempting as ever… with a bossy streak that makes her weak in the knees and a smile that melts her defenses.

As a successful restaurant owner, Alice is happy with her life. She loves her business and her family, yet after watching her siblings find their happy ever after, she can’t help feeling lonely sometimes—but that’s only for her to know.

Nate has always had a soft spot for Alice. Despite considering the Bennetts his family, he never could look at her as just his friend’s little sister. She’s a spitfire, and Nate just can’t stay away. He loves making her laugh… and blush.

Their attraction is irresistible, and between stolen kisses and wicked-hot nights, they form a deep bond that has them both yearning for more.

But when the chance of a lifetime comes knocking at his door, will Nate chase success even if it means losing Alice, or will he choose her?

*****Dee’S Review*****

Five Sweet N’ Wild Stars*****

Charming and alluring, this book was just what the doctor ordered. Nate and Alice’s story was as delicious as eating a piece of chocolate cake but without the calories, and I couldn’t have enough.

Alice Bennett is the happy restauranteur, with a sharp tongue. Her sassy attitude and sharp instinct have taken her exactly where she wants to be in life. Regardless of her brother’s success in the luxury jewelry business, Alice has achieved triumph on her own with her restaurants. She knows she can count on the full support of her loving family any time she might need it, but independence has always been important to her.

Alice has always been attracted to her older brother’s friend Nate. He is a very successful TV producer and his job has him constantly traveling, all over the world. Even though both Nate and Alice have always liked each other, timing and logistics have never been on their side.

Nate is in San Francisco for two weeks before he has to move to London indefinitely, for his next project. When Nate was a young boy he became an adopted Bennett. When his parents had divorced and he needed love and attention, The Bennett’s were always there for him, so he’s looking forward to spending time with them before he has to move to London.

Alice and Nate can’t help but be drawn to each other, and Alice is helpless against Nate’s Alpha male tendencies. It’s not long before these two succumb to their strong desires. Can they gamble and play a sexy game, or will they put everything on the table, without caring about the consequences and risk ending up with a broken heart?

I know I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again; this series keeps getting better and better with each book. Every single member of the Bennett family has an amazing character trait that simply makes for the best stories. Together or individually they are all a hit! These books are always sexy and highly entertaining. I really hope this author continues to write about these characters forever. A delightful read, not to miss!

SYNOPSIS:

A sizzling new friends-to-lover romance from a USA Today Bestselling Author. Each book in the Bennett family series is a full, standalone story.

Max Bennett was nine years old the first time he met Emilia. The two formed a tight friendship that lasted for years until she moved away. Now, years later, Max enjoys a successful career, and his brilliant business sense helped him take his family’s company to the next level. Max loves his life: carefree and fun. He has everything he wants, and has no intentions of settling down anytime soon (even though his family might have other ideas).

But when a chance encounter brings him face to face with Emilia, he starts questioning everything. The girl he last saw years ago has grown into a beautiful woman with sensual curves and a smile he can’t get out of his mind. Their chemistry is sizzling, and between old memories and new challenges, the two form a connection that is undeniable.

Emilia Campbell has a lot on her plate, taking care of her sick grandmother. Still, the twenty-eight year old physical therapist faces everything with a smile on her face and a positive attitude. The one area in her life where she’s not too optimistic is love. After practically being left at the altar, Emilia has sworn off men. Until the childhood friend she hero-worshiped and hasn’t quite forgotten, steps into her clinic. Max is every bit the troublemaker she remembers, only now he has a body to drool over, and a smile to melt her panties. Not that she intends to do the former, or let the latter happen.

They are both determined not to cross the boundaries of friendship. But as they spend more time together, their chemistry spirals out of control.

Can Emilia trust her childhood hero with the key to her heart and accept she might have found her one true love?

Beautiful and romantic best friends to lovers story brought to you by the talented pen of USA Today Bestselling author Layla Hagen. She’s ready to dazzle us again with more charm and passion, from another one of The Bennett brothers, and I personally couldn’t get enough.

21303099-_sx540_

Max Bennett knows about business; his killer instincts and smart logic have helped contribute tremendously to the success of the family business. Max is not all about business though, he loves spending time with his family and having fun, but love is not really on his radar.

When Max runs into his long, lost childhood best friend, Emilia Campbell he is so happy, but he never expected her to turn into such a beautiful and alluring woman, and having only, just a friendship with her will prove to be difficult.

Emilia can’t believe that the gorgeous guy in front of her is her best friend Max. Max Bennett and his family used to be such a big part of Emilia’s life growing up, always showing her love and support, and she had been devastated to lose them all after her grandmother and her grandfather had to move away.

Emilia and Max have tons to catch up on and he wastes no time inviting her out, but Emilia’s life is very complicated. Between having to care for her sick grandmother and working long hours as a physical therapist, she barely has time for anything else. Plus, Emilia’s body’s reaction to Max’s presence is turning out to be dangerous, because her heart is not ready to have those feelings again, after being broken by her ex.

Max and Emilia acknowledge that they have chemistry and attraction for each other, but they decide to just stay friends. Yeah right??? Who could resist a Bennett brother? No-one, that’s who…

Once these two get together the passion burns high. Max will caress with his hands every part of Emilia’s body and claim her whole heart with his charming and sweets ways. Max will discover that more than a best friend, she has been the girl that has owned his heart since he was only a boy.

This series is becoming one of my absolute favorites. I love the humor, the romance and the sweet nature of all these characters, that make it impossible not to smile like a fool as you read about their stories. Every book is about a different family member, each story unique but always giving the reader that same feeling of utter enjoyment.

A MUST READ!!!

SYNOPSIS:

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.

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.

Refreshing and romantic, Your Irresistible Love was the perfect introduction to a wonderful series that promises a stream of steamy love stories that will keep you daydreaming about The Bennett brothers for a long time.

Sebastian Bennett is the CEO of a jewelry empire that he’s built from the ground up. His success wasn’t handed to him, he wasn’t born with a silver spoon in his mouth. The sacrifice of his parents, the help of his siblings and a lot of hard work have turned him into a successful millionaire. Sebastian is humble, sweet and very good looking, he has a lot of qualities that make him very desirable to every woman in San Francisco.

Ava Lindt is a marketing director that has been contracted by The Bennett corporation to help launch the new jewelry collection. Ava goes from company to company providing her knowledge and creating the perfect marketing strategies and set for success. Ava never stays anywhere for too long, she is always on the go.

Ava is smart and beautiful and soon after she starts working with Sebastian sparks fly, but her contract has a very strict non-fraternization clause that forbids her from getting romantically involved with anyone in the work place. So it doesn’t matter how much sexual tension or chemistry she has with the sexy CEO, she can absolutely not give into her feelings, because she cares for her career too much. Ava hasn’t had an easy life. Abandoned by her father, then her mother died when Ava was attending college. She doesn’t have anybody to rely on but herself, and she can’t risk her job and livelihood for a man.

Sebastian works hard for what he wants and he wants Ava. Will he able to conquer her heart, even though they are both scared after being burned by love in the past?
