Anything For You by Layla Hagen

***A sizzling romance from a USA Today Bestselling Author *** 

Hotshot CEO Landon Connor has many talents. He's successful and driven. After practically raising his siblings, hard work is second nature for him.  Maybe he's a little too career-focused. Some (like his big and boisterous family) would even call him a workaholic. Landon has good reasons for putting his personal life on hold… 


But meeting landscape designer Maddie Jennings makes him question his choices. He can't get enough of her sweetness, or her sensual curves. Maddie Jennings is all he sees, and everything he wants. 


Maddie hasn't met anyone quite happy like Landon. He's sexier than anyone has the right to be, and more intense too. He's a little bossy, a lot hot. Despite fanning herself every time he comes near her, she tries to ignore their attraction. Maddie isn't sure that she and Landon are quite right for each other. 


When Landon romances her with late night walks and sinful dancing, she can't help giving in to him. His touch is intoxicating, and their passion is scorching hot. His love is beautiful.
But can Landon open up his heart for longer than a summer?


*This book is a standalone and intended for readers 18+

I couldn't put it down.

I can already tell I'm going to love the Connor's as much as the Bennett's. I wonder if they adopt people like the Bennett's do? *wink* Since his wife died, Landon has been all about work. She was his love. He never thought he'd find it again, and he wasn't looking. Maddie is busy with work too, but for different reasons. These two have some undeniable chemistry, and they don't deny their attraction, but they both want to keep it casual. So, I guess you could say they start off as friends with benefits, and there are some definite steamy moments. These two were cute together. I loved Landon's protective nature. He had some presence too. I mean, he could really fill a room with his smolder, and the dude's fictional. So, hats off to the author for pulling that off. I've loved everything I've read by her so far, and I can't wait to read more. The ARC of Anything for You by Layla Hagen was kindly provided to me by the author for review. The opinions are my own.

Anything For You is a story about second chances at love and new beginnings. At the beginning of the story we get to meet Landon Connor, a successful CEO of a software company based in San Jose. Although his life is full of business deals and more work, Landon hasn’t taken a real vacation in years and when his right hand, Adam suggests he takes some time off he agrees. It has been a while since he has spent any time with his family and he takes off to L.A. where he ends up meeting Maddie Jennings. Landon knows that he is going back to San Jose soon, but he can’t help to feel attracted to her right away. After the dead of his wife, he put off dating and focused on work for so long that he doesn’t know if it’s the right time to move on. His family supports him and want to see him happy again, but even they can’t stop him from leaving in two weeks. That is all he has to be with Maddie, but the more time they spend together the more he realizes just how compatible they are and he doesn’t want to let her go. As a landscaping architect, Maddie Jennings gets to do what she loves everyday. But when she gets hired to transform a property into a terraced garden, she happily takes on the job and she grows to like the family that she works for. The Connors are friendly and respect that work that she does. But when she meets one of the oldest of the Connor’s siblings, she wasn’t expecting to feel a pull towards him right away. He is not only attractive, but also kind and charming. When she needs help, he is there for her right away and takes care of her. She knows that he is going to be in L.A. for two weeks and their time is limited, but she wants to be with him no matter what. As the two get to know each other, she tells him about her previous relationship and how she felt mistreated. Maddie is a strong woman and she loves what she does for a living no matter what other people think of her. Yet, when their time is up she must make a choice of whether pursuing a relationship with Landon is worth it after all. The story was well executed and I loved the characters. Landon is such a gentleman and cares for Maddie, though he can be a bit overprotective at times. He has dealt with a lot growing up and losing his wife completely destroyed him. His siblings and his job have kept him busy and full of life. He takes care of them and wants to do right by them. We also get to find out about Maddie’s previous relationship and the impact that it has had on her ever since she ended it. The two a strong individuals in their own right, but they make a great team together. Overall, I loved the overall story and then ending, the author did a great job tying everything really well. I would highly recommend reading this story, it will not disappoint. :) ***ARC provided in exchange for an honest review.***

Landon became a workaholic after the death of his wife. Maddie has her own business and her trust is low after needing dumped by her worthless ex. Can the two of them overcome their self imposed barriers to fall in love Another lovely novel from Layla. I am certainly looking forward to reading the rest of the Connor series.

Landon goes home to renew and recharge for a long overdue vacation, little does he know ....... I was so sad when the Bennett Family series was finished (if you haven't read it is amazing!) But, I think the Connor family will be able to cheer me right up. With some amazing chemistry and hot Landon, Maddie doesn't stand a chance. Well worth the read!!!!

I am incredibly happy the Connor family got their own books... I wasn't sure what I was going to do without the Bennett's! This book was sweet, funny, and endearing. Landon decides to take some time off for once in his life and visits his sister/ family in LA. He happens to fall head over heels for her landscaper who is a kick ass woman! I enjoyed seeing a headstrong woman in a job that typically men do and that it wasn't your typical damsel in distress is saved by the wealthy guy book. Landon is a good guy, just a little cautious with his love life since his wife passed away. Maddie was recently burned by a failed engagement and it was that much sweeter to see these two get a happily ever after. I was very intrigued by the rest of the Connor clan, which is a great set up for the rest of the books. I can't wait to see these siblings, who couldn't be more different from one another, find their happily ever afters

I was SO sad when the Bennett Family series came to an end. I mean, how on earth would Layla ever bring us characters to live up to the Bennetts? Well, she gave us a very worthy introduction to her spin-off series by bringing us Landon Connor and his siblings, cousins to the Bennetts. Landon is the oldest - by only fifteen minutes as his twin sister likes to remind him - of the clan, and he's just every bit sexy and charming as you would expect from Layla. The CEO of his own company, he's the only one who lives in Northern California, while the rest of his tight nit siblings live in Los Angeles. After losing his wife, he's done nothing but work, thinking he never wanted to love again. Maddie is a transplant to LA. She's got her own landscape architect business and loves being her own boss. A bad break up left a sour taste in her mouth when it comes to relationships, until Landon. Knowing he's only in town for a couple of weeks, she tries not to get attached, but he quickly wears her down. These two are so adorably perfect for each other. Each one carries their own baggage, but it doesn't stop them from enjoying each other. The little things they do is so sweet, you literally sigh with happiness while you're reading. And it wouldn't be a sweet Layla romance without her touch of heat! Believe me, Landon and Maddie have plenty! I'm very happy with this story, and am so excited to learn more about the Connors. Can't wait to see which sibling she brings us next!

Hello, Connor Family! “I wanted this every night, every morning. Maddie owned me in every way possible.” ~Lance Minor Spoilers Alert! My tags for this contemporary novel are… HEA / Steamy / Easy-to-read / Entertaining / Wonderful characters / Witty / Romantic / Realistic / Funny / Dual POVs What I liked most about this story... I’d temporarily forgotten about the previous introduction to the Connor family in Layla Hagen’s first 9-book contemporary family series, The Bennett Family, until diving into Lance Connor’s story. Lance and Maddie’s fall into lust and love was both fun and entertaining. I liked that both main characters started their own businesses, and I also enjoyed learning more about each of their professions. As a CEO, Lance channeled his grief over losing his wife to cancer into making his company successful. Maddie had to restart her landscaping design career after her romantic and business partnership with her ex-fiancé ended very badly. Surprisingly, I found the different challenges each had to confront and overcome quite interesting. They both had to make a serious decision about the direction of their careers, and I cheered when both realized what they would do in order to make things work out both professionally and romantically. And Lance’s siblings were great supporting characters and helped to showcase how wonderful life can be when you have a tight-knit family. I’m confident the remaining unattached Connors will have stories just as entertaining. ~I received an eARC in exchange for an honest review.~

I loved the Bennett family, and after reading this, I know I am going to love the Connor family. Landon and Maddie's story helped to introduce the Connor siblings, who are cousins of the Bennett family from the previous series written by this author. I am a huge fan of the way this author writes her stories. Anytime I pick up one of her books, I know I am going to have a great read filled with awesome interactions between not only the main characters but the whole set of characters, a wonderful story line that doesn't involve a massive amount of angst, and characters who win your heart so much you don't want the book or series to end.

I was so wondering what and where we were going to go when the Bennett family series was finished. But of course I need not have worried as our Author, Layla Hagen has once again given us a book worthy of the past series, and started us on a new journey with a new line in the Connor Family. Landon has nearly worked himself to death after the loss of his wife and it is time for a much needed vacation. He does what no one in the family expects and take a little time off. When he does he meets the landscape artist for his sister, Maddie. HUM could there be magic in the air? Life is never as easy as it seems and believe me it is not in the bookworld either. Layla Hagen gives us a wonderful since of family and love and a great escape from all the craziness. I for one need this at just this time. I am so looking forward to meeting and falling in love with this new line of the family ...the Connors.

Fabulously sexy collision between Landon and Maddie. Landon has focused on work for several years following a painful loss. He’s successful but when he finally takes a much-needed vacation, he realizes that he misses spending time with his family. He also meets Maddie, his sister’s landscape architect. Maddie is committed to building beautiful spaces and is working very hard to grow her business while helping her sister pay for school. Landon needs to loosen up and Maddie seems to be just what the doctor ordered. They connect as professionals, appreciating the work ethic they both maintain but this natural connection slowly morphs into something more. But what happens when the vacation is over and Landon has to return to his home? Will they find a future together? Or is this just a fling? The moments when they both let their guard down are fun and delicious. Add in getting to know the entire Connor clan and I can see many more wonderful journeys to come allowing me to enjoy this amazing family.

I am such a huge fan of Layla Hagen's and was so sad when the Bennett series ended. But no need to be sad anymore as we say hello to the first of the Connor family books. The Connor’s are cousins of the Bennett’s so be prepared for cameos. Yay!! This is Landon Connor’s story. Landon is a certifiable workaholic who ever since the death of his wife 4 years ago, has made work his entire life, after all he is the CEO of his company. His siblings all live in LA though and he misses them and has not seen much of them lately. When he finally feels like he can, he takes some time off to go spend a couple of weeks with them all. He needs it so bad! He meets Maddie, a landscape architect working on his sister’s yard, when he gets to his sister Val’s house and the air crackles and sizzle between them immediately. Landon is sexy, protective and sweet as all get out but Maggie is strong and independent and used to doing things for herself. Landon hasn’t really thought about having a relationship since his wife passed and Maggie was totally screwed over by her ex so she is not interested in one either. But their chemistry cannot be ignored so because they live in different places and Landon’s time there is finite, they agree to see each other while he is there but not to fall in love. There is just so much to love about this couple, this family and this story! I absolutely loved it all especially watching Maddie and Landon not be able to stop the fall into love and the way this family looks out for each other and jumps in to help each other without reservation. But how can it work? They both own their own businesses in different cities and we all know long distance relationships are hard pressed to work out. Will love make them do anything for each other? If you love the Bennett’s, you will love the Connors and you need to read this book! This is such a wonderful start to a new series about another amazing family and I love them already! 5 pairs of shiny cuff links!! I can’t wait for more! I am just thrilled to have been given an ARC of this new book to review for Layla Hagen.

***ARC in exchange for an honest review*** Here comes the Connor Family series! If this is anything like the Bennett series (and I'm assuming it is based on this first book), then slay, Layla, slay! What I love the most about Layla's style of writing is that she truly pulls the readers in with the depth and development of each character, the stories are hot but not erotica, consistently great books despite them being a series, and plenty of HEA! Once again, she succeeds. If you question whether you should purchase this book and haven't read any of her other books, this is a wonderful taste of what her books are like. Just do yourself a favor and add them ALL to your cart now.

OMG I'm fanning myself after reading Landon and Maddie! The Connors will be giving the Bennett's a run for their money. Landon was a workaholic who lost his wife. Maddie a single landscaper who didn't trust easily after her last relationship. They found each other at the exact right time and their story is a love story that you'll just want to hold on to even after you read the very last word. And if the Connor series will be anything like the Bennett series, I hope to be reading more of Maddie and Landon in the siblings stories!

Anything for you is a magnificent start to The Connor Family Series. Landon is a successful businessman who has buried himself in his work since he lost his wife. Taking a holiday is alien to him. Maddie is a hardworking landscape designer who dedicates her time to her work and making sure that her sister Grace, completes her studies. Landon decides to actually take some leave to spend time with his beloved family. On arriving at his sister's place, he doesn't fail to notice Maddie, who is currently working on her sister's garden. After a minor mishap, Maddie and Landon feel an instant reaction to each other. Something neither of them has felt in a long time, for different reasons. They start looking forward to each other's company, until the sizzling heat between them lights up with sparks. They end up spending all their spare time together, knowing that there is an expiry date. That time comes when Landon receives some unsettling news about his company and needless to say that their parting is rather awkward. Deep down they both expect more, but can they change their circumstances to give themselves a chance? The dynamics in the Connor family are rather contagious and the interactions between Landon and Maddie are humorous, loving, caring and raunchy. This story flows seamlessly with lots of love and laughter and very little angst. I was totally absorbed from beginning to end. A total winner. I look forward to seeing more of the Connor Clan. I was kindly issued with an eARC and the views expressed are my personal opinion.

Layla Hagen has a new series for us and I’m absolutely thrilled. I loved her Bennett Family series, but now she gives us the Connor Family series. They’re even related to the Bennett’s, woohoo! The first book, Anything For You, tells the story of Landon Connor and Maddie Jennings. Their chemistry is undeniable, but they know their time is limited. Landon thinks he will never love again since he lost his wife, Rachel. Maddie is wary of relationships since her ex, Owen, turned out to be a real jerk. I highly recommend this new series and I can’t wait for the next book. Thankfully, Landon has plenty of siblings that need their own happily ever afters. Grab your copy and get ready to fall in love with theConnor family. You know there will be plenty of sexy times, so what are you waiting for?

My Rating: 4.5 Favorite Quotes: I was a sucker for men in suits, but men with rolled-up sleeves and muscled forearms were my kryptonite. Maddie smiled sweetly at him while working on his cocktail. “Rule number one. Never be disrespectful to the person serving your food or beverage. You never know what they might put in. ”When she slid his glass toward him, the guy looked down at it as if afraid to touch it. I held my glass up in her direction, grinning. Her sass was contagious. The dating world is a lot like seeing a fin in the water and thinking it’s a dolphin, only to later discover it’s a shark. It takes trial and error to get to the good ones. My Review: I adore Layla Hagen’s sweet and sexy romance, they are my guilty pleasure and have never failed to put a smirk on my face. Written in my favorite dual POV, the engaging story was low angst with clever hits of humor and provided a lovable cast of endearing new characters as well as and a sweet, steamy, equal, and supportive relationship. Nirvana. I look forward to many more stories featuring the feisty and lovable Connor clan.

From the author that brought readers the addictive Bennetts, comes another branch of intriguing, heartwarming, sexy reads. Just like the Bennetts, family is everything to the Connors. Loss is a familiarity that has strengthened the bonds of these siblings and as cousins to the Bennetts they've experienced what love means first hand. Anything for You gets the ball rolling with older brother Landon. A savy businessman who can be lethal in his professional life, but is less attentive to his personal one. When a little free time brings him back into the bosom of his family, things change. It only takes a matter of weeks to show him what he's been missing. Maddie is his second chance. If he can let go of the pain of his past, he might have a chance at a future. Hagen knows how to create a swoon-worthy hero. Easy on the eyes, dangerous to the heart.
