Publisher's Summary

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.

Intriging Concept, Mediocre Execution

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.

Ugh! Gave up.

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.

"you complete me" seriously?!

I struggled to finish, the book suffers from a lack of originality and unrealistic dialogue.

What a gem of a story

This story was so much fun. Sweet sassy and sexy my favorite things in a book. I love this family dynamic. I love the Alpha/levelheaded Sebastian. The match making has me cracking up. The narration was spot on. Great job done by all. Pardon me while I go one click the next book in the series.

sweet

this was a straightforward romance with little to no drama. If you enjoy the "boy meets girl, and straight to happily ever after," then this book is for you.

Did the author have a lot of bad relationships?

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.

Cheesy

I just felt this one was a bit cheesy for me. I didn’t give up and listened all the way through. It got a bit better or maybe I was just used to the dialogue. “You complete me” ugh. At least I can check off a read for my reading challenge.

A great start to the series

This is a sweet, sweet story. Ava goes to work as a consult for 4 months at a multi-million dollar jewellery company, and meets CEO Sebastian Bennett. Neither of them are looking for a relationship, however sparks fly from almost the get go and while they try to fight it, the attraction is just too strong. Get ready for some funny banter, plenty of sexy times and even some emotional moments. I adored the Bennett family, I can't wait to read/ listen to more of their antics.

Kasha Kensington was fantastic as Ava Lindt and performed her beautifully, I struggled a little with the change from Ava to Sebastian but found if I increased the speed just slightly I enjoyed it more, this is probably just personal taste.

Aiden Snow was the perfect narrator for Sebastian Bennett. He performed him brilliantly. The entire performance was smooth and captivating, his voice was pure perfection for the sexy times. The change in tone and inflection for the change between male and female characters was subtle but effective. I cannot wait to listen to more.

I very nearly sent it back!

This is the first Layla Hagen book I've listened to/read. I very much enjoyed the storyline with great characters and a lot of promise for books to come that I can't wait to get stuck into.

I very much enjoyed Aiden Snow's narration throughout the entire book. However the narration done by Kasha Kensington was poor at best. I'm really struggling to find a gentle way of describing my thoughts, I really don't like to hurt others feelings, but it greatly diminished my enjoyment of the book. Right from the off when listening to Kasha I was struck by how awkward it sounded, it didn't flow and was read one sentence at a time with a noticeable pause each time. My immediate reaction was I can't listen to hours of this and I seriously considered returning it, which is very rare for me. The only reason I didn't was the story started with Sebastian, competently read by Aiden, so that together with the book summary already had me hooked by the time Kasha started. I can't say it ruined the story because the story I loved but it is something others should be made aware of. Kasha hasn't narrated the rest of the series which I am pleased about because despite really wanting to hear the family's story I wouldn't have bought any more.

Lacking plot and substance

I found the language unsophisticated and the story contained cliched statements and corny phrases which were so predictable. It reminds me of something a 15 yr old might say and react ( except for the sex scenes). A very disappointing read.
