Wendy's Review of Your Captivating Love by Layla Hagen ~ BLOG TOUR ~ GIVEAWAY ~

Your Captivating Love Synopsis:
Logan Bennett knows his priorities. He is loyal to his family and his company. He has no time for love, and no desire for it. Not after a disastrous engagement left him brokenhearted. When Nadine enters his life, she turns everything upside down. 

She’s sexy, funny, and utterly captivating. She’s also more stubborn than anyone he’s met…including himself. 

Nadine Hawthorne is finally pursuing her dream: opening her own clothing shop. After working so hard to get here, she needs to concentrate on her new business, and can’t afford distractions. Not even if they come in the form of Logan Bennett. He’s handsome, charming, and doesn’t take no for an answer. After bitter disappointments, Nadine doesn’t believe in love. But being around Logan is addicting. It doesn’t help that Logan’s family is scheming to bring them together at every turn. 

Their attraction is sizzling, their connection undeniable. Slowly, Logan wins her over. What starts out as a fling, soon spirals into much more than they are prepared for. 

When a mistake threatens to tear them apart, will they have the strength to hold on to each other? 
*This book is a standalone. 
Each book in The Bennett Family series will follow a different couple.* 



Blake opens his mouth, but a knock on the door interrupts us. 
“Come in,” I call out. 
The door opens, and Nadine comes in, wearing an elegant cardigan… And two seconds after stepping inside, she drops the cardigan to the floor. She’s stark naked underneath it.
Then she notices Blake.
“Oh, my God,” Nadine exclaims. Hurriedly, she covers herself with the cardigan again.
“I haven’t seen anything,” Blake says, turning to face the wall. Judging by his grin, he took an eyeful. The bastard. 
Nadine’s blushing, Blake’s biting his fist to keep from laughing, and my dick’s twitching. Perfect. 
“I thought you were alone, Logan,” Nadine says, mortified. She clutches the collar of her cardigan with both hands. “The security guard said all the employees on your floor have left.”
“I’m not an employee,” Blake chimes in. “He wasn’t there when I came into the building. Anyway, I’m leaving now.” 
Nadine flattens herself against the wall as Blake heads to the door. She stares at a spot on the carpet the entire time. He doesn’t wipe off his smile, but at least he has the decency not to joke about it in front of her. 
Nadine covers her face with her palms after he leaves. “I’m never going to be able to look Blake in the eyes again.” 
I walk up to her, lying through my teeth. “He didn’t see anything.”
She peeks at me between her fingers. “You’re lying.”
“Fine, I am. Let’s forget about him.” 
“I can’t believe this. The first time I was in this building, I soaked my dress and shoved my boobs in your face, and now—”
“Shh,” I say, fighting not to laugh. 


3.5 stars 

This was an enjoyable and fun read. 

We met Logan and Nadine in the first book and at the end of that one, we were teased by a possible romance. Well we were not disappointed with their story. Logan has always been the protector of his siblings. He has been hurt by a past relationship and has decided not to settle down. Nadine has made the move to a new location, after a breakup, to start her own business and to be near her best friend, Ava (who is now engaged to Sebastian, Logan’s brother). It seems that the female Bennetts and Ava have decided to play matchmaker for Logan and Nadine. 

I did enjoy the relationship between Nadine and Logan. What started out as something fun morphed into something real. For two people who were opposed to having a “real” relationship, it sure becomes something more and interesting. They are basically the same person and they get along really well-a perfect match. Their growing relationship was sweet to read about. The way that Logan treated Nadine-sigh every girl needs a man like that. 
Once again, the rest of the Bennett family add so much fun to the story. They are such a great family. All of the siblings have their own uniqueness that they bring. The banter between the characters were some of the best parts of the book. This is a light read that will keep you intrigued until the end. I can’t wait for the next book and see where the Bennetts takes us next
