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.

Layla Hagen has another winner! I absolutely love her Bennett Family series. This book is mainly about Logan and Nadine. Nadine is Ava's best friend and Logan is Sebastain's brother. Everyone, you will fall in love with the entire Bennett family! I wish I could be an adopted and/or honorary Bennett, lol. Family always come first with them and that's the way it should be. You will absolutely love Nadine's story and Ms. Hagen gives us the background we need, to understand why she doesn't trust easily. I recommend this book to everyone! I can't wait to read Pippa's story next!

I liked what I saw of Logan in the first book, so I was excited when I saw this was going to be his story. He has that whole delicious Alpha thing going. I didn't realize that from the first book, because he was the "nice" brother, but he knows how to put on the smolder with some authority and get his way without seeming like a total jerk. Nadine is fun. I love her dream of opening a bridal boutique with her own dresses. That would be the ultimate in fun jobs, I think. She knows what she wants. She has a plan. And, she's used to getting things done on her own. So, the Bennett clan is a little overwhelming at first, and Logan can be overbearing to say the least. Needless to say, their story was interesting and fun. I love the Bennetts, and I can't wait for more of their books! The ARC of Your Captivating Love by Layla Hagen was kindly provided to me by the author for review. The opinions are my own.

‘A master of anticipating, that’s what Logan Bennett is.’ ~Nadine ‘She’s fighting this as much as I am. Who’ll give in first?’ ~Logan ★¸¸.•*¨*•★Minor Spoilers Alert★¸¸.•*¨*•★ Writing style: Dual POV ★ Cover design: I love the purple title the most. ★ Lead Characters: Nadine, an aspiring dress designer/maker and Ava's best friend Logan Bennett, CFO of Bennett Enterprise and 1 of 9 adult Bennett children ★ Supporting characters: The Bennett siblings and parents and Ava, Nadine’s bestie and Sebastian Bennett’s fiancée ★ The story: I really have zero criticism. This was the right story read at the right time for me. I loved being back in the Bennett universe again. Please could someone introduce me to a guy with a family like the Bennetts? Seriously, I wanted to be adopted by this clan. And Nadine was a welcome new addition. I liked her determination, her dream of being a dress designer and proprietor, and her tendency to kick Logan whenever he tried to touch get her attention while she slept, lol! And Logan, well what's not to love about him? The guy is dedicated to his family and a born alpha-protector. I loved how he adjusted those two character traits in a manner that suited his unexpectedly intense attraction to Nadine who'd recently moved to San Francisco after a bad break-up. We learn fairly quickly why Nadine and Logan both had cause to guard their hearts and avoid a serious relationship. I really enjoyed the circumstances that made them throw their caution to the wind and just embrace what their chemistry and growing bond signified. I gushed almost constantly on GoodReads as I read. Below is one of my top favorite moments between Nadine and Logan: He can see through me. Cupping my face in his hands, he says, “I don’t want you to ever think you’re alone again. Whatever happens, I’m with you. I’m your guy.” “You’re my guy,” I whisper back. ★ Coming up next in this delightful family series is Pippa’s story, Your Forever Love (The Bennetts #3) with an expected publishing timeframe set for sometime in the summer of 2016.

Thank you Laylal Hagen, the Bennett family is my favorite addiction. I fell in love with this family in Your Irresistible Love and couldn't wait for Logan's story. Logan and Nadine fall in love in spite of themselves. And it is delicious to go along for the ride. Now let's get the rest of these 9 siblings and the 'adopted Bennetts' their HEA.

Pipa decided Logan needed a wife so Ava suggested her sister, Nadine, would be perfect for him. The trouble was Logan didn't want a serious relationship and Nadine was on a break from men. Neither of them were prepared for the attraction they felt when they met. I love this series and that the Bennett family were always there for each other. The characters are so well done that I feel like I know them and want to be a friend of the family - or married to one of the guys. I liked the plot and Layla's writing style. It's easy to follow the story and enjoy it. Personally I got tired of them having sex all the time and all the details of what they did. It was always the same. Nadine thought about sex too much for my liking, too. I recommend this book to romance lovers, especially if you like a steamy read. Please note that I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

Nadine is a fighter and a survivor. Her whole life, she has been the one taking care of everyone else while finding ways to do what she needs on her own. Logan Bennett tests these beliefs and boundaries since he is the one in his family that makes sure everyone is cared for and he is captivated by Nadine so naturally wants to care for her. Will these two strong-willed individuals find a way to meet in the middle? I loved how Nadine really stuck to her guns and who she is, not giving in to Logan. He really has to work to find a way to help her. There connection as a couple is fabulous since they have a lot in common, both are driven, care-givers that know what they want. We also get to experience the entire Bennett family, getting more insight into their family along with who might be in the matchmaker cross-hairs next. What a fabulous series to get carried away with.

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!

My Captivating Love is a spectacularly exquisite journey of discovering and embracing a rare and precious love while learning that trusting your heart is never a weakness. This story crept silently into my mind and boldly obliterated any obstacles guarding my heart. Until this series, I could never have imagined falling so helplessly in love with an entire family as diverse and endearing as the Bennetts. They are such an incredible group of individuals that you love each of them for very different yet solid reasons. Focusing on this part of the family made me even more of an enthusiastic fan and very eager to learn as much as I can about each of them. The Bennetts can make anyone a true believer in real and honest love. Nadine has a solid plan. She is determined to see her dreams come true after a lifetime of disappointments and setbacks. Never once did her plans include falling in love, and more than that she never saw herself as missing something important. Her dreams of opening her own dress boutique and being able to provide for not only herself but also her parents are her sole focus. Knowing that her opportunities in her hometown are non-existent, she sets out to San Francisco to be closer to her best friend Ava and enter into a much more thriving market. Logan can feel things shifting within his family. Sebastian is now engaged to a wonderful woman and somehow that is driving a momentum that isn’t slowing down. Don’t let that small inkling of doubt let you think that he has lost control because it means that he making sure not to allow things to get any farther out of hand. He doesn’t need or want anything permanent. He learned the hard way and is dead set on not repeating it. However, when your heart finally finds the other part that completes it, can you truly stop them from becoming more, or will you find a way to sabotage the best thing that has ever happened to you for the sake of your fear? Nadine and Logan are truly two amazing and vivacious people who are solely focused on what they want. They don’t let distractions get in the way of their dreams. What happens when you are better together then apart? There are times in life when you need a helping hand, and isn’t it better to have one offered to you then to go without? These two personify intensely independent people who proceed to dance around each other in the hopes that their connection and burgeoning feelings are only temporary and just for fun. When the temporary feels way too good to be just fun, will they see the virtue and benefit in laying their fears side and instead hold tightly to their new found love and devotion? These two literally slayed me with their wit, their banter, their heart, and their love. They were truly meant for the other, and it was a wild ride watching them slowly coming to that realization and them choosing to embrace it. Layla Hagen has done it again! She has stolen my heart with her light-hearted yet deeply emotional story that truly gutted me while making my heart soar with wings of encouragement at the same time. She is without a doubt a phenomenal author who only keeps getting better and better. I can never get enough of her brilliant storylines or her incredible characters. Reading one of her books is one of the small joys in my life, and I am always impatiently looking forward to the next.

"He leans in to me, kissing my cheek. At the same time, he presses his palm against the small of my back, and all my senses explode. The innocent kiss turns into something almost sinful as he lingers with his cheek against mine for a few seconds. His hand at my back feels incredibly intimate, and his smell. Oh, God, he’s too much. I swear the air between us sizzles." This second book in the Bennett Family series is just as enticing as the first one. Logan is CFO in the family multi billion business. He is no longer looking for a relationship since his last one didn't end well. He concentrates on the business and his close knitted family instead. Nadine is a cloth designer and is looking to open a shop to make a name for herself. She is very close to realising her dream but has to make sacrifices to get there. Logan's sister Pippa thinks that it's about time for Logan to settle down. She is on a matchmaking mission. Logan is not at happy about his sister's "meddling". He is quite capable of finding his own woman. Thank you very much! When Logan meets Nadine for the first time, it's instant attraction. Since neither of them wants to commit, they agree to go on a date and take it slow. In the meantime Nadine's priority is getting her business off the ground but it's not that easy as she encounters various obstacles. She has always fended for herself and is not prepared to accept help from anyone. Logan is itching to help but will he drive her away if he does? This story is fun and addictive. It's got love and laughter. Hot sex. Family loyalty is at the forefront. Getting to know the Bennett Family is a real joy! I would recommend this series to all readers. I received a complimentary ecopy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

The Bennetts are back. More adorable than ever. What struck me in Sebastian and Ava's story (Your Irresistible Love) is how close this family is. They work together, play together, worry together and even do matchmaking together. It's the Bennetts against the world and everything they do is out of love for one another. Layla Hagen uses family as a stepping stone and a focal point. By doing this she lets her readers know what is important to these alpha males and focused females. Love personified is how I would describe it. I received an ARC of Your Captivating Love in exchange for an honest review. I have been looking forward to reading Your Captivating Love since I finished the first story in this series and learned that Logan's story was next. To put up with these men a woman has to be strong, secure and driven. She also has to have an amazing heart and a strong capacity for love. We saw a little bit of Nadine in Ava and Sebastian's whirlwind love story and I was so glad to find out more about her. She's a pistol but when she connects with someone, she cares deeply. Complexity does not always make a good story. Sometimes simplicity makes all the difference. I love this series.
