A Release Day Review & Excerpt of Your Captivating Love by Layla Hagen

Your Captivating Love (The Bennett Family #2) by Layla Hagen
Genre: Adult (Contemporary Romance)
Date Published: April 12, 2016
Publisher: Self

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 left him brokenhearted. 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, 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? 

*This book is a standalone. Each book in The Bennett Family series will follow a different couple.*

Your Captivating Love is the second book in The Bennett Family series by Layla Hagen. 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 InkSlinger PR for review. The opinions are my own.

Logan doesn’t kiss me as if it’s a means to an end.
He kisses me to… kiss me.
I have never been kissed like this before. He worships my mouth, and I know he’d do the same with my body. Without warning, Logan intensifies the kiss. He pushes me against the wall, sucking on my tongue. I burn between my thighs, my whole body alive with need. When I mirror the action on his tongue, I’m rewarded with a groan. He pulls back, dropping his mouth to my neck.
“You taste so sweet,” he says. “I could kiss you all night, Nadine.”
“Why don’t you?” I whisper. “Can I have a second kiss?”
His lips curl into a smile against my neck.
“You’re an impatient little thing. No second kiss right now.” He lifts his head, looking straight at me. “Remember what I told you about anticipation?”
“I must give you some incentive to accept going on a second date with me.”
I laugh. “You sure can negotiate.”
