Sigh. What a wonderful second chance romance. Daniel and Caroline met in college and became friends then lovers. As college neared its end, they had different dreams to pursue that was going to create a long-distance relationship. Daniel did what he thought was best and broke it off, shattering Caroline’s heart. Now, the interesting twist is that Caroline remained friends with the Bennett family, so she would see Daniel at some events. Daniel was the playboy for several years but has now built a successful business. His sisters can tell that he never stopped loving Caroline, so their matchmaking skills get kicked into high gear to bring these two back together. Caroline has worked the last 10 years to get over Daniel, but she hasn’t been successful. When Daniel begins to pursue her in earnest again, she finds it hard to resist but she has had some life changes that may push Daniel away. These two have a combustible sexual relationship, struggling to keep their hands off each other which is fun to experience as they rekindle their love. I am never disappointed when I get to dive into one of the Bennett families story. Layla Hagen keeps me coming back for more with her blend of humor, romance, drama and sexiness. I voluntarily read an ARC of this book and this is my honest review.
To her defense, she does have chronic bad luck in the dating department. But maybe her expectation that all men are @holes actually attracts @holes.
I have three sisters. Sugar’s the answer to everything.
I’m sorry about how I handled things on the phone. I was scared and the stupid came out.
I’m sure the right one’s out there somewhere. He just needs a map to find me. Or a compass. Better yet, a GPS. Mine’s definitely not working. Keeps sending me into dead ends.
Oh those swoon-worthy Bennett men, all sweet-talking, rich, successful, handsome, thoughtful, romantic, sex-gods, this is how you know you are reading fantasy as these men are as common in real life as a bus driving unicorn. But Ms. Hagen does make them delightful reading with her clever and amusing humor, playful banter, and endearing characters. And those scorching hot sex scenes… an absolute bonus. I enjoyed this sweet and steamy second chance romance from start to finish.
I voluntarily reviewed a complementary copy from the author with no obligation.
I absolutely loved Daniel and Caroline together. Once I started reading this, I couldn't put the book down. I just love the Bennetts so much. I love how when reading this series, we get to see the rest of the Bennett family and how their relationships are going, but I am sad knowing there is only one Bennett left to find love.
