Book Release and Review: Your Irresistible Love by Layla Hagen



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?

“Save your breath and get going.”
I shut my mouth, breathing through my nose as I command my legs not to give up. Jogging is hard. After about a mile, a cramp takes hold of my right thigh. I come to a halt with a shriek and grip my thigh, hoping to relieve the ache. All I manage to do is make the cramp extend to my ankle too. 
“Fuck,” I groan, collapsing on the sand. In a heartbeat, Sebastian kneels next to me, putting his hands to work on my thigh and ankle. He kneads my flesh expertly. Before long, the cramp subsides, but he doesn’t stop touching me. 
“You really are in terrible shape.”
“I told you to go gentle,” I groan. “Jesus, it hurts everywhere.” 
“Ava, I don’t do gentle.”  
His words send a jolt of heat right to my core, his double entendre turning me on instantly. I push myself up on my elbows.
“How often do you run?” I ask. “Be honest.” 
“I go to the gym every morning. Running an hour is part of my routine.”
I snort. “I knew it. Why didn’t you mention that when I told you I haven’t been running in over a month?”
Sebastian smirks, shrugging. 
“Well, at least I get the satisfaction that you’re also sweaty.” 
“Oh, I can think of a much more satisfying way to get sweaty,” he says. Then he does that thing with his eyes again that turns me to mush. His gaze smolders, as if nothing exists except the two of us. 
“Does it involve any clothes?” I mumble. 
“No, it doesn’t.” 

His gaze descends to my chest then lower on my disheveled body. Since he’s not bothering to be discreet, I allow myself to inspect every delicious detail about him. Sweat dots his upper lip, and I imagine what kissing him would taste like. A little like salt, a lot like a man. Oh, God. How am I supposed to resist him when he’s so irresistible? 

My Review

If you are looking for a good boss/employee romance to pass the time, this story will easily fit the bill. I has a solid cast of characters-both lead and supporting-that come across as real and easy to relate to. The storyline, while a bit predictable, will keep you entertained.

For me, even though the story was not short, it still feel like everything between the two main characters Sebastian and Ava moved a bit too quickly. This made things feel a bit less smooth than what I normally expect when I read one of this author’s books. I did however really enjoy the interactions between all of the Bennett family members not only with each other, but also with Ava. There was quite a bit of really good banter to keep things interesting.

Sebastian was my favorite character in the story, with the only thing bugging me about him being his lack of reaction toward the end to Ava having to go to New York.

Overall, I found Your Irresistible Love to be a 3.5-star read. The story does have my interest piqued for more, and I'm looking forward to getting to know the Bennett family much better as this series progresses.

Coming Soon...

Your Captivating Love (The Bennett Family, Book 2, which will be released on April 19th):

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 clothing 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. After bitter disappointments, Nadine doesn’t believe in love. But being around Logan is addicting. 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. What starts out as a fling soon spirals into much more than they are prepared for. 

When a mistake threatens to tear them apart, will they have the strength to hold on to each other?
