Totally awesome!!!

I loved this book. This was my first experience with Layla Hagen and I am a fan. The story was well developed along with all the characters. Although you can sort of see where the story goes (although, once you read a few romance novels, you should anyway), it's definitely worth the listen.

The basis for this story is about a single girl recovering from heart ache but well passed the initial hurt. She's independent and self sufficient. The guy is recovering from his own heart ache in losing his wife to illness. He is also at a point where he's open to finding love again, although a bit hesitant. This story doesn't really focus on the previous relationships. It's really more of a gloss over and it focuses on who they are now and moving forward as a couple. Their work is an overlay but not really a major part of the story. The story is simply sweet.

The book also includes various support characters that have been setup for their own stories. The ending will leave no doubt has to who's story is told in book 2. The good thing about them though is that you are just as invested in their stories as you are with Landon and Maddie.

As always, Sebastian York and Andi Arndt are amazing and the perfect voices for these characters. There are a few skipping issues but nothing that causes the story to be less impactfull.

Move over Bennetts, the Connors are in town

I adored the Bennett Family series, like thousands of other people, and I’m sure we all had the same fears and questions when it came to the end of its run. What now? How can we ever move on? Will this Connor family be able to make us feel the way the Bennetts did? Layla is a genius. The Connors are a wonderful family, they have a totally different dynamic than what the Bennetts had, and it works so well. The way the siblings interacted was pure brilliance. This could have gone one of two ways, it could have been the Bennetts rehashed, or it could stand on its own originality, and it’s the latter. This series feels new and fresh and I am so excited to spend more time with the Connor Clan! I listened to this book in one sitting, once I started I just couldn’t pull myself away from this story and these characters. Layla writes characters you want to know about, you want to spend time with, and her writing flows so beautifully that it just immerses you into their world.

Landon and Maddie are so sweet together. From early on you must know they’re a match made in reader heaven. The way they interacted and came to terms with their feelings was sweet and beautiful. No major conflicts to drag out and make us question their feelings. It was obvious. Landon is such a swoony sweetheart, I fell for him early on. He’s not had it easy, raising his younger siblings and then losing his wife - but, he doesn’t close himself off, he embraces his feelings for Maddie, even if they weren’t what he planned. Maddie is such a wonderful character, I adored her. She’s making a name for herself in a tough business, all while helping her sister finance college and although she doesn’t have the need for a man, and doesn’t want to get hurt again, she’s still open to a relationship with Landon. Rh chemistry between them was palpable and the steam level, well, lets just say Landon isn’t all sweetness *wink* The other Connors are awesome, I can’t wait to get to know them some more. The next book is out soon, right?

Andi Arndt and Sebastian York are a powerhouse. They always deliver when they perform, and when they’re paired up, you know it’s going to be magic. This book is no different, I thought Sebastian embodied Landon, he was just the perfect voice for this character. Andi was brilliant as Maddie. They both bring so much emotion to the characters and the change of tone and inflection really gives each character a unique voice. The production was fine with no issues I noted.

Good story line, but...

...WAY to much detail of repetitive sexual detail, to the point of annoying! The story line gets lost.

Couldn’t stop

I couldn’t stop listening...I drive a lot living in a different part of the state then the rest of my family. With most books I just listen in the car and it takes me at least a week to finish them. With this book I was listening all the time till I finished it! I can wait till the next one in the series.

Absolutely love Anything for You!

Layla did it again! I loved the entire Bennett family, but I think I love the Connor family even more and have changed my mind and want to be a part of the Connor family instead. I couldn't put this book down until I had finished it!

The Connor family is so close with each other, but then again you would be too, if you lost your parents and all you really had to rely on was each other.

Landon and Maddie were both in pain from their past loves and neither thought the other could love again. But like an amazing love story, just when you think you can't get past the hurts, someone amazing comes into your life to make you fall in love all over again.

Landon is the alpha male, oldest brother, and protective man. All around swoon worthy. He has been in a hard place over the last 4 years due to the passing of his wife. And he gave up on having the amazing life that he had always dreamed of and seen his cousins from San Francisco have.

Maddie is an independent woman who has a hard time trusting anyone after what happened with her ex. And I can completely understand where she is coming from. But she is also adorable and needs to let someone help her every once in a while too.

The story is very relatable and so easy to listen to. It just sucks you in until you get to the very last second of the audio.

I love this story! Sebastian and Andi are excellent narrators and make the story even better.

And of course, I can't wait for the rest of the Connor family to have their own books and stories as well.

Absolutely Beautiful

This was a really beautiful story, sweet, funny with really no drama and swoon-worthy.

A story about two people with borken hearts for different reasons that will have to learn to open themselves again and trust in each other allowing themselves to fall in love again and find their HEA.

Landon's family's amazing, how supportive of each other they are and I can't wait for their stories too.

The narrattion was really great. It's my first time listening to both narrattors and they did an amazing job bringing the story to life.

Swoon, oh Mr. Connor

Landon & Maddie are absolutely beautiful together! I really loved the Bennett Family series (cousins), & can’t wait to get to know more about the Connors! Landon & Maddie both experienced heartbreak in the past, for different reasons, but they got their chance at their true happily ever after. It was a sweet book, focused on their family, work, and their growing feelings/relationship with each other. There wasn’t really any drama, which I typically like at least a little of in a story, but I found my self being completely fine without one. Sometimes you just need a sweet book. Definitely would recommend! Narrators are one of my favorites, so OF COURSE they did a fabulous job!

Why so many high ratings?!

This book was a real drag. Two boring people meet, a relationship ensues, nothing really happens, the sex is boring because there’s no chemistry, and both claim to not want a deep relationship but even their internal monologue from the start contradicts that. Their backstory really should mean that you FEEL a bit more for them, and your heart go out to them, but you just don’t. I just got distracted and struggled to finish the book.

Expected...something

My absolute two favourite narrators and they very rarely lead me wrong, however both did! It’s a cute story I guess, easy listen with such great narrators. I was just waiting for something to actually happen. All very pretty with a bow storyline though. Backstories of the characters had little to no effect on their relationship - their coming together would have been the same with or without the information.
Have returned, don’t care to read on in the series.
