Your Captivating Love

by Layla Hagen







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 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.

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.

But what starts out as a fling soon spirals into so much more. Will they learn to trust their feelings?

Will they have the strength not to let go of each other?

Favorite Quotes:


“When the going gets rough, I eat chocolate, drink a glass of wine, and then put my proverbial boxing gloves on.”


“You make me want things Nadine… Things I didn’t want to want.”


“Unfortunately, life tends to be a series of badly timed events.”


“I have this down to a science.  There are three stages for a woman to forgive you: apologizing, groveling, and kissing the hell out of her.”


My Review:


Layla Hagen is one of my go-to authors for the sexy and sweet romance and I am firmly enamored with her latest series featuring the large and highly successfully Bennett family.  I want to be an adopted Bennett…  Ms. Hagen’s characters tend to be smart, clever, hard-working, and endearingly flawed.  I am always entertained by her lushly descriptive writing, whether she is detailing a room, personality, appearance, or personal history. Her creative sensual love scenes often leave me gasping and chartreuse with envy.  More please!
