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 Sebastian, 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.
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. Besides, the consultancy she works for has a strict policy - no fraternizing with clients. She won't risk her job. But soon their sizzling chemistry spirals into a deep connection that takes both of them by surprise….
Contains mature themes.

I made it as far as Chapter 15, because this was the second book in a row I couldn't stand. As far as I'm concerned, this is barely a book. It's a series of sex scenes hung on a very feeble story line. Could care less about the characters as well.
This book had potential but it fizzled quickly. Ava and Sebastian were too perfect according to them. They worshipped each other because like they said none stop in the book "they were each unlike any other person." All other people they had relationships with just abused they. This is a big theme in the book which they say over and over again. I mean get over it and just be happy you found someone that's not like that. The end was totally stupid and did not make any sense. I don't recommend this book.
My way in learning to relax is to read or to be read to audiblly!
This story was different whereas Sebastian is a great guy with all the morals and responsibilities. Love at 1st sight I truly enjoyed the writers work and look forward purchasing more of her work.
This is the first book I've read/listened to by Layla Hagen. The bOok is definitely more of a love story and has mild adult scenes. Based on other comments, I was expecting something a little more steamy. That's said, it was a good story, but predictable like most love stories... Billionaire males and struggling girl fall in love. Still a good story because the lead male isn't a jerk or some head strong dominant. I'll continue to read/listen to the rest of the books in this series.
Great Books Don't Promote Violence
I liked the concept of a romantic series that featured siblings of a successful family who were not born rich but rather worked together to build the business. While I believe the author is talented, I was hoping for more character development and less whining.
I never connected with oldest brother Sebastian who claimed he never dated a woman who wasn't just interested in his money. Maybe he should have questioned his own choices and picked his dates more wisely or spent time getting to know a woman before having sex.
Likewise, Ava was relentlessly negative and insecure in spite of being smart, educated and attractive. Ava willingly signed a contract that forbid her from dating clients, then decided to risk her professional reputation. Why sign a contract that she wasn't willing to follow? Hopping in bed with a new client (and total stranger) showed bad judgment and low self-esteem.
Considering their bad dating experiences, I didn't find their instant true love very believable. There were cute moments and the potential for more, but the emphasis on sex details instead of personalities did not fit this couple's ages (early 30s). Although mildly entertaining, I was expecting more substance from the Bennett family.
I LOVE this book I love that the millionaire playboy in the book it's a playboy at all is an amazing love sweet and caring man with a great family I like that they gave it a try no real back and forth about being together
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
Rich, sexy, charming and very handsome Sebastian Bennett is the CEO of his own Company Bennett Enterprises and he, and Logan - his brother who's CFO, are tired of the same shallow plastic bimbos and leeches who constantly seek the glamour and wealth that these 'Most Eligible Batchelors' can provide. So, when temporary Marketing Consultant Ava confidently walks into Sebastian's office, her looks and personality blind sides this jaded batchelor and Sebastian instantly feels possessive and protective - as well as feeling the instant intense chemistry that flows between them.
But Ava's a true professional and it's in her Contract that she mustn't have any personal relationship with the client - even if he is a drool-worthy sexy temptation. So these two very likeable characters start a business relationship that would grow from innocent flirting into a beautiful love story because the sexual pull towards each other just couldn't be denied for long. And the closer they got to each other, the deeper they fell and the hotter their encounters got.
This was so entertaining, there really wasn't much angst, drama, secrets or misbehaving because these two characters respected the Hell out of each other, were considerate towards one another and were very sexually attracted to the other. There was lots of sex, a nicely building storyline where Sebastian lured Ava in by any means necessary... which included his large close knit family of siblings, parents and friends - something that Ava never had but longed for. Dual POV's, there was banter, humor, dirty talk as well as romance, passion and tender times too and both narrators did a good job.
Worth a credit? Yes and it's a great introduction to all the characters that make up the loving, close and friendly Bennett family.... and I can't wait for Logan and Ava's bff Nadine's story. This was an instant attraction, everyone was beautiful and perfect, light, drama free listen that flowed well and only had just one slight misunderstanding towards the end. Their journey and story pulled me in and I loved it all.... but, if you don't do 'saccharin' love stories then perhaps this just isn't for you.
fantastic book well deserved reading looking forward to more from the bonnet family. You won't regret it, they are a great series.
