Overview

*USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR*

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?

Likable characters. Enjoyable plot, but short on details. Something in the writing of this author leaves me hanging. There is a depth missing to her words. I'm reading, but not engaging and entering the world of the characters. More like, I am hearing about it, rather than living it. I purchased the series and will continue to read the next two books about these "oh so gentlemanly Bennett brothers" and their extended family-just not a favorite series.

This is the first time reading Layla 's work. I must say it won't be the last time, I love this series. The closeness of all the Bennett ' leaves you wishing you belonged to their family too ! Ava found her alpha man in Sebastian. This book was so good and surprisingly funny with the rest of the Bennett ' s bantering and watching out for one another . Love your work Layla. Can't wait to read each Bennett ' s find their soul mates!

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.

A great read!

Its not very often when i come across a book that doesn't have that crazy angst of a love triangle, cheating, or serious miscommunication. This read was so very sweet and romantic that i myself have fallen in love with it. Ava is a strong confident woman who has had horrible experiences with men that it has her a bit scared to believe in a man. Sebastian is such a kind and caring man. He knows what he wants and knows how go get and keep it. He's very much an alpha but he isnt so "in your face" about it. Knowing that a romance could jeopardize her job she tries to stay away from Sebastian but he has made it very clear she is who he wants. They are absolutely honest with each other and that sets a very good foundation for them. among introducing her to his family, staving off unwanted advances, and fighting for what he wants, he has made Ava fall in love with him completely. I loved that Sebastian is very loyal to his family and his relationships. Although plenty of women have taken advantage of his generosity he keeps that side of himself alive. Ava isn't like the rest of those women who want his money or what his name can get them. He's see's that and loves it. I love the easiness and chemistry that they have with each other. Its very genuine and believable. this is most definitely a read that i will re read many times in the future!

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. In this first book in The Bennett Family series we meet Sebastian, the CEO (and founder) of Bennett Enterprises. His business is important to him but his family is the most important thing in his life. Bennett Enterprises is extremely successful in the jewelry industry with many family members holding positions in the company. When Sebastian sees Ava who has been hired as a marketing consultant for their new line, he's instantly attracted to her. This couple tried to keep their relationship professional but that didn't go too well for them. Layla Hagen has written a wonderfully descriptive novel with very likable characters that gripped my heart. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know them. It was interesting the way Ava and Sebastian were drawn to each other but tried not to give in to their desires. Ava was a strong, intelligent woman who did her job well. Sebastian was also strong and intelligent but it was nice to see his soft side when he was worried about the way Ava felt about him. I love the Bennett family and am looking forward to reading more about them.

This was a fun and addictive love story. Ava and Sebastian were characters who were easy to love. Ava is strong, intelligent and confident. Sebastian commands the page and has Alpha moments that'll make you drool. I like how these two are together. They work well... on many levels. They're funny, and the chemistry is palpable and steamy. This author really knows how to attach the reader to her characters, and not just the main characters. The ARC of Your Irresistible Love by Layla Hagen was kindly provided to me by the author for review. The opinions are my own.

A scorching hot and very touching read! This was a great contemporary romance. It's one of those stories where everything seems to just fall into place, and the characters, Ava especially, deserved it. I really liked reading Ava. She was realistic and I enjoyed reading from her point of view. Sebastian was absolutely adorable. He knew that he wanted Ava and would let nothing stop him from keeping her. The love scenes were peppered nicely throughout the book and were HOT HOT HOT! All in all, this was a nice, low-stress, read and I'm looking forward to more books in this series! ***I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review***

Well, I’m sold. I wasn’t sure I would be. Like many other romance book junkies, I have a crap ton of book series that I’ve already collected still waiting to be read. “For what it’s worth, you’re unlike any other woman I’ve met. You make me feel…everything.” * “You’ll never feel alone again, Ava. I promise.” A lump forms in my throat, emotions overcoming me. “You’re going to make me fall in love with you more every day, aren’t you? “I’m certainly going to try. You deserve to be loved, and you have so much love to give. I’m happiest when you look at me like I’m your whole world, so I’ll make sure to work hard to earn that look.” ** Luckily, I was charmed by this story. It had two very strong lead characters, several interesting supporting characters, fun pacing, humor, and plenty of steam. I especially loved the fact that Ava and Sebastian were both in their thirties and had each achieved success the hard way. Obviously, Ava’s non-fraternization work clause was no match for the chemistry they had together. And, I was thoroughly entertained by the progression of their relationship and Ava’s integration into the Bennett family fold. One of my favorite lighthearted moments takes place at the office: I pull myself up straighter. “Just so you know, all these long hours mean you’ll get laid a lot less.” “We’ll see about that,” Sebastian replies, a rueful smile on his face. “Does anyone care that I’m in the room?” Logan throws his hands up in the air. “No,” Sebastian and I reply in unison. “Okay…glad we settled that,” Logan concludes. I also loved the cute epilogue and the fact that Pippa and Ava were scheming to pair Logan up with Nadine, Ava’s bestie. Up next in the Bennett family series is Logan’s story.

Sebastian and Ava are the incredible characters of Layla Hagen's new book "Your Irresistible Love". Their combustible connection leaps from the pages to weave a delightful story of love, family, fun, and triumph wrapped up in a steamy package. I didn't want to put this book down once I started it. not only was it incredibly well written but it captured my attention from the start. I was swept up into the sexy chemistry that Ava and Sebastian had, they knew that the risks were high with them getting involved personally but they couldn't fight their attraction. I loved that despite Sebastian being a alpha billionaire Ava was smart, sassy, and could hold her own. She gave as good as she got. The whole Bennett clan was lovable and made me want to be a adopted Bennett just so I could hang out with them. Each character complimented the story perfectly. I eagerly await the release of the next story in the series. Hagen has hit a homerun with this new series.

I have read nearly everything that Layla Hagen has written. I have enjoyed each and every book and Your Irresistible Love is no different. I love too see an author branch out into other sub-genres and develop different types of characters. To date, my favorite book has been, Withering Hope, but this new contemporary romance is trying desperately to overtake that spot. I love the characters in Your Irresistible Love. Ava is smart, hard working, and driven, while Sebastian is headstrong, sexy, and ruthless in business. However, having built the family company from nothing, he is very family oriented. Deciding that the company needs the help of an outside marketing consultant, Ava is assigned the job. From the moment the two meet, their chemistry is combustible. Sebastian is a man who is rarely denied what he wants, and he wants Ava. He is a man who has given up on love, but is still attracted to the beautiful Ava. While she feels that there is something wrong with her, since her last two boyfriends cheated on her. She has a plan and cannot jeopardize her job and the plans she has in place. The problem is, her company has a non-fraternization policy, so a relationship with the sexy Sebastian is out of the question. I love the interactions between these two character, it's playful, sexy, and real. The interaction between the family members is very entertaining. Each family member has no problem sticking their nose into a sibling's business. While the Bennetts are a wealthy family, their values reflect the upbringing by their parents. While the money buys privileges and a lifestyle that others envy, the family always comes first. I like that this isn't your typical billionaire story. The Bennetts are a big rowdy family that not only work but play together. I cannot wait for the rest of this series. Each sibling is to have their own book, so that's seven more sexy reads with characters that are fun to read.

Sebastian Bennett hires Ava Lindt as a marketing consultant. There is an instant attracion, but Ava is resistant because of a clause in her contract about fraternization. They flirtation is HOT. At first, I expected this to be just another instant-love billionaire story. But Layla Hagen has a way of wrapping you into the story. Sebastian comes from a large family and you get a little introduction to all of the family. I really felt like I got to know the characters. I couldn't put the story down. Sebastian is a man to swoon over. If you like Jill Shalvis or Samantha Chase, you'll love this story. I'm definitely looking forward to the rest of the series. A must read for romance lovers.

Fun, Flirty and Fabulous, ‘Your Irresistible Love’ is a feel-good story that will have you all gooey inside! Our heroine Ava is a strong, determined and independent woman, making her the perfect match for the hard-working, ever faithful and fiercely protective CEO of Bennett Enterprises. Their chemistry was off the charts, but it was her sass, and the natural banter the two shared right from the off that made their story resonate so much with me. They didn’t fall head over heels in love at first sight, instead they had a brilliant flirty relationship, a firm friendship and a later blossoming of natural romance which didn’t feel at all rushed or forced. I always understood that Ava wanted to give her job everything she could. Sebastian Bennett was a delicious specimen of hero. He was hard when he needed to be yet still fair, and seeing the strong relationship he had with his family and his determination to help his family and pay them back with the same kindness he’d received from them, was heartwarming. The scenes where the Bennett family are all congregated were so well written, and we get to see some great, well-developed characters that I have a feeling we’ll be seeing more of in the future. The way that Ava was included in the family was so lovely, and there were some beautiful scenes where we see just how much she misses having her mother with her. There is intrigue, glamour and misunderstandings, but at its heart, ‘Your Irresistible Love’ is a warm, fun romance with a spicy edge. 5 Stars!

Well hello Bennett family. Layla Hagen has given us a wonderful cast of characters that has me excited for each of the family member’s stories. Sebastian Bennett leads off the tales; he has built a jewelry empire out of the need to make sure his family is taken care of. Growing up, their family didn’t have much so he made it his mission to become a success and ensure that his family wouldn’t want for anything. Along the way, he put work ahead of love and now all the women he dates are more interested in his bank account than him. Ava is brought into Bennett Enterprises to launch the next jewelry line with a fresh perspective. Ava is excited about her new assignment but she never expected Sebastian Bennett to light her fire. Ava isn’t allowed to date anyone she is working for; will she be able to keep her distance from Sebastian? Sebastian is challenged by Ava, which surprises him as she treats him like any other person. Will Sebastian be willing to let love into his life? Is Ava willing to risk her career to find true happiness? Loved every moment of Sebastian and Ava’s journey, as well as meeting the entire Bennett family, Layla has definitely set the tone for an incredible series. I appreciate the great chemistry and banter that made me feel like they were my friends.

I found this book to be a great read with wonderful character that put family first business second. The characters are strong the plot is great and the passion is high. Ava is a strong willed woman who is use to doing everything for herself. When she meets Sebastian she finds he is as strong willed and bullheaded as she is. It is hard to miss the attraction between these two when they first meet. This is a story built on family, honor, friendship, and taking the bull by the horn. It is a book filled with humor, love, compassion, teasing, as well as a few heated scenes. Ava is a lovely character that toes the lines her company gives her. When she met Sebastian she finds those lines bending. As she is adopted into the Bennett family she feels a completion that she has never felt before. This is a family that works together and has each other's backs. She doesn't take without giving, she really is a down to earth lady. There is no doubt she is strong but at times I felt she gave in a little too easy for her character. All in all she was a lovely lady that is very likable. Sebastian is alpha all the way and use to getting his own way. He does have a weakness for his family there is nothing he wouldn't do for them. He is attracted to Ava from the start and plans to make her his as soon as possible. She throws up a few blocks but is nothing to what he is about to throw at her. He is a very likable character who has an ego to match it. He doesn't throw his weight around nor his money. He isn't afraid to use his money to help those he care or take down those who hurt the ones he cares about. I did think it was a little out of character for him when Ava had to go back to NY and he didn't take after her. The author gives a lovely story which will pull you in with wonderful characters which will keep you laughing and smiling throughout the pages. The characters might have money but they are down to earth some with a little more ego than they need. Book two in this series looks to be even better. I am sure it will have some spit fire scenes to keep it a page turner. This was a good read nothing that really reaches out to grab you but it will hold your attention and keep you smiling with this family’s wonderful sense of humor and their family ways.
