Publisher's Summary

Ruling his LA hotel empire through determination and hard work, Reid Davenport is a mystery to many. Despite the media’s interest in him, Reid steers clear of the limelight - until his life is broadcast in the tabloids, endangering not only his privacy, but that of his parents and his little sister. He’d do anything to protect them...except listen to the fiery and intelligent PR pro, who's as beautiful as she is tempting. Every time she walks into his office, he fantasizes about bending her over his desk and kissing her. Every time she smiles at him, he wants to pull her closer and not let go.

Hailey Connor doesn’t take on uncooperative clients. But the second she meets Reid, she’s compelled to stay and help, even if she must fight his own broody ass to do it. He’s bossy, demanding, and so sinfully alluring that she knows she's in over her head. Reid may be infuriating, but when he talks about his family, she can’t help but melt a little. With every kiss, they grow closer. With every touch, they fall deeper. They’re opposites...yet perfect matches. But when their different worlds collide, will it tear them apart or bring them together?

I love the Connor family!!!

The story is filled with romance, drama - mostly brought on my Reids' ex - and laughter. With plenty of twists and moments that will make you cheer, this book will leave you with a smile on your face. I always want to start the series again from the beginning, every time a new one comes out. I love the Connor family!

I can't believe it's the end of the series!!!

AHHHHH I loved this book!!! I can't believe it's the end of The Connor family books...what am I supposed to do now?

Andi and SebYo did a perfect job narrating Reid and Hailey!!

I love how Hailey pushed Reid out of his comfort zone but I really loved how Reid helped Hailey realize it's okay to love and take chances because you're not living if you're always worried about what could happen if it went wrong.

And of course the entire Connor family are in rare form!!

Beautiful and Romantic!

This was my first Layla Hagen's book, and won't be my last. This is the book 6 in The Connor Family Series. Reid and Hailey's story is beautifully written, and romantic. I loved it. I love the relationship between the Connor Family members. Sebastian York and Andi Arndt did an amazing job with the narration, as always. I enjoyed listening to this story. Looking forward to listen to the first books in the Series.

4.5 Irresistible Stars!

I am new to The Connor Family series and this charming, steamy romance has captured my heart! This romance is the perfect mix of emotion, humor, and steam.
Hailey Connor has moved back to LA to be close to her family and to start her dream job. She is a wiz at handling PR nightmares and loves a good challenge. Reid is a hotel mogul, who was forced at a young age to take over his family’s hotel business. He is very guarded and private, but loyal and loving with his family. When an ex girlfriend is spreading lies, he will do whatever it takes to protect them. Reid's assistant hires Hailey to help repair the damage, and Reid is not happy, or cooperative. He is the challenge Hailey loves. Their banter and the way they challenged each other was so much fun and it was performed perfectly by Andi Arndt, and Sebastian York. Ardnt really nailed Hailey's strength and sassy, while showing her vulnerable side as well. York is perfect as the bossy, demanding Reid and the way he morphs into the tender, protective brother, son, and lover is flawless. They were amazing together as they brought this sweet, touching, and steamy romance to life!

I couldn't stop listening

Reid Davenport knows it all, or he thinks he does. He is in the hotel business and he needs a PR specialist to help him with an ex problem. This person wants to destroy Reid because well, she can’t have what she wants and the best way to kick him is hurt his pockets. His family is important so when this situation begins to bleed into their lives it is only fitting that he gets help from Hailey.

Hailey is a master at her craft. She is well sought out and she does amazing things for her clients but getting Reid to listen becomes difficult and umm well there’s also that little crush that she has. She sees a strong man who is amazing with his friends and family. He wants to protect but he is stubborn and beneath it all, she knows this is bigger than he is expecting. She is the one who can get him out of the situation but will he let her do what she does best? Is she ready for the fallout that will come with this situation? Are they both strong enough to battle the wave of emotions and consequences?

Loved it!

I've only read one Layla Hagen title--Your Inescapable Love, back in 2016, and I'd loved it--in all my years of reading, and I don't know if I can provide an explanation for why other than the opportunity to read the other books in that series never presented itself. Pathetic, I know, especially since I'm a stickler for reading a series in order and that book was the fourth in The Bennett Family, and now, my first audiobook from Hagen happens to be sixth one in the spin-off series, The Connor Family. Gah! But I've finally added all the books from both series on my never-ending to-be-read list because listening to this newest audio highlights the sad fact that I've been missing out on some fantastic storytelling.

As I mentioned, Always with You is book six in the author's The Connor Family series, and it's narrated by Sebastian York and Andi Arndt, two of the most popular narrators in the romance genre and that popularity is well-earned. This was an enemies-to-lovers story between hotelier Reid Davenport and PR specialist Hailey Connor. She steps in when an ex of his goes on a smear campaign--one that he didn't deserve--but he isn't all that thrilled at having a stranger butting into his personal life. That doesn't mean, however, that Reid hasn't noticed just how beautiful Hailey is. When he realizes that he needs her--both in and out of the bedroom--will they be able to weather all the storms coming their way?

I loved the chemistry between Reid and Hailey and the organic development of their relationship was one of my favorite things about their story. As much as this was about their love story, though, it was also about family, what with both Reid and Hailey coming from close-knit clans who are highly protective and supportive of them. I REALLY hated Reid's ex, and can I just say that what happened to her was, well, something she deserved. There was some angst and a fair amount of humor, and most importantly, this was all heart and heat. Layla Hagen penned a story that had me hooked and Sebastian York and Andi Arndt made me believe that they really were Reid and Hailey, respectively. Five stars! ❤

Fastest Audio book yet! 5 stars ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️

Fastest Audio book yet! Elizabeth @ Carolina Chic’s Read

Usually an audio will take me at least three days to get done. I finished this one in less than 24 hours!

The story is fast paced and completely sucks you in. Reid is not in a place in his life to fall for anyone.. but with Hailey all bets are off! He can’t help himself. He goes all in without ever acknowledging who they are and what they can be together.

They both have an insane attraction... next thing you know their days are never spent apart. “swoons”

💚 💙 Sweet & Beautiful 💚 💙

Always with You was my first book by Layla Hagen. I enjoyed it a ton! It was light and hot with some drama and depth to it. I thought Reid was a great character. He has that alpha male personality going on. However, I loved that Hailey was able get him to soften up a bit. He didnt beat continously on his chest, bellowing out. Hailey brought out this softer, caring side to him. THAT is what made Reid amazing IMO. He had a bit of a soft spot, a weakness for his woman. The secondary characters were all amazing as well. I'm kind of bummed that I didn't listen to this series in order... they all seem to have heartwarming stories. I'll have to jump back and check out the first 5 audiobooks.

The narration by Andi Arndt and Sebastian York was perfect. There wasn't a single flaw in the entirety. I could listen to Miss Arndt read/talk all day long. I find her voice to be soothing, yet it's fun. Sebastian York is also a pleasant narrator. He has a good strong voice and is so easy to listen to and understand.

...a bittersweet ending to an unforgettable family

Always with You marks a bittersweet ending to an unforgettable family. Hailey is the last Connor to fall and she falls hard. Reid is not in her plans. Her brain is saying bad idea, but her heart deems him a perfect fit. Although they meet under less than perfect circumstances, they make quite an impression on each other and closet romantics everywhere. Can two people who love being in control, loosen the reins enough to fall in love? With humor, heart and love, Hagen saves the best for last. What's the harm in a little heartbreak when it leaves the door open for so much more.

So good!

I thoroughly enjoyed this story! But, I am sad that it has ended. I love the Connors and Bennett’s! Hailey and Reid are a perfect team. Great chemistry and I love the banter. If you’ve read the others, make sure you grab this one!

Sweet Story <3

This was the first book I have read/listened to from this Author and even though I have come into this series late it didn't spoil my enjoyment of it, just made me want to read the other books in the Connor Family Series.

I loved the main characters Reid and Hayley. The connection between them is instant and palpable even though Reid acts like a complete dick. He's broody and stuck in his ways and Hayley challenges his life and makes him want more for the first time ever.

Andi Arndt and Sebastian York are two of my favourite Narrators so I knew they were going to weave their magic with this one and they did, they really brought the story to life.

A sweet story

Sparks fly when broody businessman Reid Davenport and PR pro Hailey Connor meet for the first time. His ex decided to air their dirty laundry in public and it’s affecting his parents’ and sister’s lives. She is determined to help him, despite having to fight him every step of the way. The book follows their story as they grow closer and fall deeper as they work together.

I know that this is the last one in a series, and while I haven’t read any of the other books (Layla Hagen is new to me), the writing was done so beautifully that I didn’t feel like there was something missing; but now I want to read the rest of the books!

Andi Arndt and Sebastian York, as expected, didn’t disappoint. I enjoyed listening to the easy banter and flirtation between the two main characters. I just think that the audiobook would have been better if it was recorded as a duet.

Always with You is a contemporary romance written in dual POV and recorded in dual narration. It ends with a HEA. No cliffhanger, no cheating.

I received this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.

Reid and Hailey!

To anyone who doesn’t know him Reid can come across as cold and harsh but they couldn’t be farther from the truth when you see how warm and caring he is towards those he loves. He manages the family hotel business and is determined to keep his private life private but his ex-girlfriend is doing everything she can to make their past very public and is more concerned about the publicity it brings than it being the truth.

Hailey is the baby of the Connor family and because of her past she has always been close to her family. She is a rising star in the PR industry however her newest client Reid is less than impressed that he needs her services and their first meeting was a disaster. He comes to the painful conclusion that he needs her professional help but the personal connection between them took them both by surprise. Their journey was not without its drama and angst but that only made the ending that much better.

Reid and Hailey are perfect for each other as they help each other heal from their pasts. Hailey shows Reid that life doesn’t always have to be serious and Reid shows Hailey his sexy side which is enough to make you swoon. It is always fun to catch up with the Connor family and this book is no exception. I received a complimentary copy of the audiobook and the narrators were a perfect choice and made you feel connected to the characters.

Hailey & Reid!

Listening to the Connor family is like coming home. When I heard Hailey's story was being released, I was so excited. Hailey is a public relations specialist and when Reid, a hotel mogul, was having some difficulty, he hired her. Now spending time together is leading to more than just managing the press! This is the perfect matching of people. Hailey is strong, loyal and will do anything for those she loves. Reid is fiercely protective, loving and willing to take the fall if necessary to keep those he loves safe. Their transition from co-workers to lovers is effortless and oh, so romantic! And the best part of this series is getting to see other Connor family members! Hagen has a wonderful series, all giving that warm and fuzzy feel, low angst and completely immersible entertainment. Her stories fill my heart, and this one is no exception.

Narrated by Andi Arndt and Sebastian York, we just fall into their easy and familiar sound. These two have such a chemistry, it flows even when the characters aren't there yet! You will love to give this a listen!
