How steamy is it? Hot Damn

Publisher's Summary

Alice Bennett has been holding a torch for her older brother's best friend, Nate, for more than a decade. He's a hotshot TV producer who travels the world, never staying in San Francisco for too long. But now he's in town and just as tempting as ever...with a bossy streak that makes her weak in the knees and a smile that melts her defenses.

As a successful restaurant owner, Alice is happy with her life. She loves her business and her family, yet after watching her siblings find their happy ever after, she can't help feeling lonely sometimes - but that's only for her to know.

Nate Becker has always had a soft spot for Alice. Despite considering the Bennetts his family, he never could look at her as just his friend's little sister. She's a spitfire, and Nate just can't stay away. He loves making her laugh...and blush.

Their attraction is irresistible, and between stolen kisses and wicked-hot nights, they form a deep bond that has them both yearning for more. But when the chance of a lifetime comes knocking at his door, will Nate chase success even if it means losing Alice, or will he choose her?

Contains mature themes.

Absolutely love the Bennett's!

Every book in the series so far has been nothing short of fantastic! Alice and Nate's story was so heart touching and real.

Bennett family love doesn’t fail...again

I love Layla Hagen and the Bennett family. We’ve been getting teased with alice and Nate’s story for several books now and it did not disappoint. Childhood crushes developing into deep, passionate and selfless love seasoned with sassiness and cockiness and this book is just about perfect.
I will be so sad when this series is over and all the Bennett’s are settled.

Love the Bennetts!

Bennetts...Bennetts... and more Bennetts! Words cannot describe how much I love the Bennetts! Love Layla Hagen! Love the story of Alice and Nate! A childhood friendship turned relationship type of story if you wanna call it that. It was so sweet how they’ve always had a thing for each other since Alice was in high school. Narrators did an awesome job as well!

The Bennett’s

I’m truly enjoying this series. It makes me mad, glad and even laugh out loud! Despite there being a common theme, I love each family members story. Looking forward to the remaining books

Wow

This book doesn’t disappoint. Alice and Nate’s story is wonderful and fun. A friend to lovers story that sucks you in from the beginning and has the same continuing family stories tide into it. I love the Bennett family! Enjoy.

Disappointed

I could not stand Alice’s thought process. Got on my last nerve! I suffered through the entire book only because I needed to know how it ended.

love the story, reader as Alice not so much.

This book is great. Loved all the books in the series so far. However, the person who performed as Alice was very hard to understand. I had to turn up the volume just to be able to hear her part. It seemed as if she mumbled and she read the part very fast.

Dislike Alices narrator

Love Nate and his narrator, but Alices narrator is killing me🤪 I’m struggling to finish this book. Whoever said that Alice should sound THIS way should get a clue!!! It’s irritating!
I’ve loved all the Bennett’s, but my ears and head want to explode🤯

Story is great

Loved the story! But not my favorite narrators. At times I found Alice’s voice irritating.

Kind of dragged

Dragged on a bit, not the best story. Found the female narrator voice was very boring and spoke to soft. Didn't captivate me.
