Your Alluring Love (The Bennett Family, #6) by Layla Hagen

*A sizzling romance from a USA Today Bestselling Author*

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 can melt ice—or at the very least, 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?

The Bennet's are by far my favorite fictional family, and I've been excited to finally get Alice's story. I love how she's known Nate for so long. Even though he's a childhood friend of her brothers, they became friends through the years as well. Somewhere along the way, they developed crushes. They were just cute. Quite steamy at times, but still cute. And, they kept that cuteness. We got a little tease in the end of what will probably be the next person whose story we get, and I'm super thrilled about it! The ARC of Your Alluring Love by Layla Hagen was kindly provided to me by the author for review. The opinions are my own.

★¸¸.•*¨*•★ Minor spoilers alert★•*¨*•.¸¸★ I’m a huge fan of the Bennett Family series because of how crazy cool their parents are, still deeply in love all these years later after all those kids, ha! With role models like their happily married parents, how can the Bennett siblings not be successful in love ultimately? And I love how the siblings all relate to each other differently and have fallen in love with unique challenges to overcome. So far, Alice was the 6th Bennett family member to find love and the right person to accompany her on the path to a HEA. She found it with Nate, someone who’d been around when she was growing up. Nate was a frequent visitor at the Bennett home. He went there to escape from his mom’s turbulent relationship with his then step-dad during his youth. Fast forward to current day, and now adult Alice and Nate finally decided to risk the Bennett siblings’ scrutiny and potential ire - if things were to go tits up between them that is - by giving into to their simmering attraction. ಌ ಌ ಌ ಌ “If you feel a screw-up coming, don’t be afraid to do something about it. But in the meantime, I’m gonna do the right thing by you.” He kisses the top of my nose, and despite his warning, I sigh happily. It’s all we can do, really. Do our best and see where this takes us. ಌ ಌ ಌ ಌ I enjoyed experiencing the progression of Alice and Nate’s love story. I liked the coziness of their shared past as young friends morphing into mature, sexy and often playful romantic love. I started reading their love story at a really busy time in my life, so I wasn’t able to read it as quickly as I’d hoped. That said, I actually enjoyed savoring it and dipping back into their world as a stress reliever whenever I could. And then finally, I had some concentrated time over my Memorial Day weekend to really focus read for the home stretch. Finding out how these two could overcome the geographical challenge Nate’s long coveted overseas job as a television show producer created for them was crazy satisfying. I read the last sentence in the epilogue with a huge smile on my face. Today, while looking back at my GoodReads updates before I started writing this review, I felt yet another grin of pure pleasure on my face because it was such a good reading experience for me. *¨*I received an eARC in exchange for an honest review.*¨*

From the intriguing synopsis to the sexy cover, Hagen has managed to deliver a heartwarming story about second chances at love and new beginnings. At the very start we get to meet Alice Bennett, a successful entrepreneur who has worked hard to open up her own restaurants around town. Being part of a big family has definitely kept her close, and now that she is opening another restaurant with one of her brother's, she can't wait to start a new adventure. That is until she runs into Nate, a close family friend and successful TV producer. As someone who is constantly on the move, Nate has been away for a while, but when Alice sees him again emotions start to resurface. She knows that she is asking for trouble the minute Nate proposes to take their relationship further, but she is willing to take a chance on them before he leaves again.

4.5 Swoon-worthy Stars! “From carbs to sugar to Nate, I’ve always craved things that are bad for me.” “I want to memorize every sensation coursing through me, soak up all the goodness of this moment.” “All experiences mark us in some way. But I think everything comes down to choices. For a long time, I chose not to get attached because it was easier.” “And now?”….”Now I choose us.” What a fabulous read from author Layla Haygen! Your Alluring Love is told from dual points of view and follows the story of Nate and Alice. Alice has had a thing for Nate for as long as she could remember but their timing was never right, and Alice was never sure if Nate returned her feelings. Keeping her feelings has never been easy, and it’s about to be put to the test when Nate returns to town. Time has passed and Alice is no longer a little girl. She can only hope that Nate finally sees her for the woman she is….Nate has always had a soft spot for Alice, but being so close to her family has always kept Alice at arms length. But, now that they are spending some time together, Nate can’t fight the attraction he feels. He knows he should stay away and that he can’t give Alice what she needs, but he just can’t find it in himself to stay away. Sparks will fly, lines will be crossed and the potential for everything Alice has ever wanted is within her grasp. Will Alice finally get everything she’s always wanted? Or will fate throw an opportunity at Nate that will be too hard to resist??? There’s only one way to find out! Overall, I really enjoyed Your Alluring Love. I thought the story was well written and paced perfectly. I adore the Bennett family and honestly can’t get enough of them. Alice’s story is one that I’ve been waiting for. Her story was everything that I was hoping for. Alice is smart, has quick wit and a huge heart. She’s hard working and strives to be the best. I think Nate was a good match for her because he just got her. He understood him and made him laugh. Alice showed Nate that there was more to life than just work. And boy, the chemistry between these two was intense. I mean sparks flying all over the place! I couldn’t wait to see what would happen with these two! Your Alluring Love was a terrific addition to The Bennett Family Series. I loved the story-line and couldn’t get enough of the characters. I though this story had the perfect amount of romance, angst, alpha moments, and steamy moments. I loved watching Nate and Alice fall for each other. And it’s always a blast hanging out with The Bennett Family. Layla Hagen has done an amazing job with this book and this series. I fall in love even harder with each book that I read and I can not wait to see what this author has up her sleeves next!

Reading more about the Bennett family always makes me smile. This is a great clan that bands together to help each other while allowing each other to fly and find their own path. This time, we get Alice’s story, she has been a significant part of the matchmaking plans for the family. I was excited for her to find her HEA. She has been in love with Nate, her brother’s best friend, for years but because he’s friends with her brother, and older, he’s been off limits. She has pined for him from a far. Nate is in love with Alice but out of respect for his friend, has stayed away. His TV career has had him all over the globe working so when he finally ends up back in San Francisco on a long term project, well, he decides to take chance and asks Alice out. I love how these two tried so hard to stay away even when their electric attraction kept pulling them together. Nate is very persistent but Alice is clever and makes his job hard. All of these stories deliver fun, romance, passion and overall, a great sense of family, whether blood related or not. I’m always excited to dive in and learn more about the Bennett family members lives.

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book. I have read this entire series and really like them a lot. I did not read the last book about the brother Christopher and I did not feel like I missed anything. This book can easily stand alone though I would suggest starting at least with the first book as that will help you know the bck history on the Bennett's and all the characters. This story is about Alice Benett and her brother's best friend, Nate. Nate has not been featured in the series yet but he is a tv exec who grew up with the Bennett's. I loved the flash backs highlighting his and Alice's teen age years. Both Alice and Nate have had flirtation and crush for years and they never went there with the other. But now Nate is in town, and well they decide to explore it when Nate seems to get a local job after his dream job falls through.Nate is very alpha and well Alice is too. She owns 3 restaurants and loves to feed everyone. Her and Nate, together are very sweet and romantic and the relationship does not bother anyone in her family. There are some really fun and sweet family moments in this story and I really love this series because I love the family scenes. I love how natural Nate and Alice are together and how well the two mesh together. You can see the writing on the wall with the whole dream job eventually falling into Nate's lap. What happens made for a wonderful way to make Nate face his real feelings and we see how much Nate loves Alice and vice versa. While I mostly loved the story, I felt sometimes we were told more about the story than experiencing it. And I felt that time went by sometimes way too fast. Many chapters open with 2 weeks later or 3 weeks had gone by. But none of those things took away from Nate and Alice who were perfect for each other and whose story I really enjoyed.

**4.5 Stars** Layla Hagan has created one of my favorite series that I just can't get enough of. The Bennett family captured my heart with book 1 and the love for them keeps growing with all the books. You seriously just can't help but love this family. Alice and Nate's story was no different. Alice is the quick witted, good with words, mother hen of the siblings. She is probably one of my favorites and I was so excited for her story. Especially after knowing she's had a torch lit for family friend, but this family friend was so much more than I was prepared for! It was a side to Alice we haven't seen before and that made it so much better. Alice's chemistry with Nate is off the charts and watching him feel the same made it ever better. Nate Becker has been friends with the Bennett family since high school, they became his second family and home. Alice was always an added bonus, but he never did anything because of the relationship with the family and his always moving job. Until he finds himself in San Francisco for more than a few weeks things change and so does their relationship. The chemistry between these two was seriously is so hot. I loved it. I loved watching them give in to the eye flirting that has been going on for years. Watching Alice find her happily ever after was just what I needed to get me out of my funk I was in with reading. I can't wait for more of this family!

5 Stars *I am honored to be gifted this ARC for my honest review.* It seems as Pippa wasn't needed with Alice in her matchmaking ways. Long time family friend and adopted Bennett, Nate has always been the crush for Alice. Feelings are mutual. Not wanting to act on those feelings because he all but has the job, his dream job working in London. When he discovers he no longer has the job all bets are off and he's going after Alice. Just as Alice is readying to open her 3rd restaurant she is falling for the flirtatious ways of Nate. He's so bossy and can be quite romantic, besides how can she deny the heat and spark between them. My all time favorite family, the Bennetts. I want to be an adopted Bennett, I say it with every book and mean it more each time. Layla is such a great storyteller, I fall in love with each word that consumes me in each book she creates. Crossing fingers Blake is next. I highly recommend this book. Can stand alone but you'd be missing out on one spectacular family, do yourself a favor and read them all.

Layla Hagen has done it again with Your Alluring Love! Alice's story has taken the top as my favorite Bennett novel! Alice has always drawn me in with her spit fire personality and smart mouth. This book seriously brought all the feels. It was a perfect mix of humor, passion, and heartbreak. All the while bringing that feel good feel. As the previous books I love the authors ability to continue each siblings story while keeping it completely unique and a standalone. The Bennett family dynamic is fun and inviting. Their love and devotion for each other only gets more fierce with each book. Alice's shot at love was a absolute joy to read from start to finish. Alice Bennett has held a flame for family friend Nate for years! With Nates constant travel for his career he's never been in San Francisco for long, until now. Alice is managing a full time challenging career herself, now owning 3 restaurants. Alice quickly finds having Nate around full time is quite the temptation. Just as things heat up, one proposal quickly changes everything. Nate Becker is tiresly working towards making it big in his career in the TV production business. Relationships have never sounded appealing after the destruction his parents marriage caused throughout his childhood. Followed by his moms second failed marriage into his adulthood. Nate has never pictured himself settling down until now. Nate quickly finds himself consumed in his overwhelming need for Alice. When overwhelming circumstances and compromises regarding careers and love surface can Nate and Alice find a solution. Or will things be over just as quick as they started? In the end will they find each other truly worth it? If your looking for a passionate, all consuming love story I highly recommend this book/series. It always leaves your heart felling warm and fuzzy. While also leaving your mind patiently awaiting the next Bennett! *I voluntarily read a advanced copy!*

Alluring Your Alluring Love is an alluring novel. It grabs the attention and doesn't give much choices but to devour the story from beginning to end. Nate is a TV Producer whose job takes him to various countries, leaving him with little time in San Francisco. He has been a friend of the Bennett family since a young age but he is unable to look upon Alice as just a friend, even though he knows that she is off limits. Big brothers have been flexing their muscles! Alice owns two successful restaurants and is about to open a bar/restaurant with her brother, Blake. She's been crushing on Nate for a long time. Him being older than her made a difference then, but it's no longer an issue and her attraction for him hasn't waned. Nate is in San Francisco for a few weeks before taking off again. When he attends a birthday celebration at the Bennetts, he is unable to keep his eyes off Alice. They've always had a connection but never went further than friendship. This time round, they both have difficulties in hiding their attraction. They get on really well as friends and love teasing each other. Nate loves to see Alice blush and laugh whereas she would do anything to put a smile on his face. Despite their misgivings, they start with a kiss, then a date which leads to so much more. They had a strong bond as friends but the new relationship is electrifying with so much love. Their work keep them busy but the time that they spend together is exceptionally passionate. When everything is going so well, something which could tear them apart crops up. Are they meant to be together? Nate is adorable and despite Alice's strong personality, there is another side to her and she hides it well. At least, she thinks she does. This story is addictive with all the right ingredients for a romantic novel. I have enjoyed each and everyone of the books in this series and can't get enough of the Bennetts. They all have such wonderful personalities. I really like Clara, the newcomer who fits in so well. It looks like Pipa might be up to her old tricks, enough for me to wait for the next instalment with anticipation. I received a complimentary eARC and the views expressed are my personal opinion.

Big, Boisterous and Bold are the perfect adjectives to describe the captivating Bennett clan. They play hard, love hard and care deeply for each other. That's the definition of what family should be and Ms. Hagen successfully centers every story around that foundation. Your Alluring Love is Alice's turn up to bat. For her it's always been one man that held a place in her heart. Nate has been friend, crush and dream man for most of her adult life. Can he change his wandering ways enough for them to explore what's in their hearts? Each Bennett novel is better than the one before and I am excited that Ms. Hagen has more of these dynamic characters, waiting to be explored.

I must say that Layla Hagen's The Bennett Family series is at the top of my all-time favorite series. She didn't disappoint with Your Alluring Love. I loved Alice and Nate's story. I loved the dialogue between them and I especially loved Alice's sassy comebacks. If you want to read a book with FAMILY being the heart of the story, then you should definitely one-click this book. You will laugh out loud at times and you may even shed a few tears. I can't wait to read the next book in this series.

I voluntarily reviewed a book gifted to me by the author with no obligation. I love this series so much, but as we go along, I am sad because I know we are running out of siblings, which means the end of the series, and I don't want it to end. I love series like this where each book focuses on a different character, but they are all interrelated, so we get to keep hearing about the characters from the other books in the series. This is Alice's story. She has had a crush on her older brothers' friend Nate from when she was a young woman. Little did she know, Nate hasn't been oblivious to her, either. I can't wait for the next Bennett sibling to find their match. The sad thing, though, is there are only three siblings left.
