Title: Your Forever Love (The Bennett Family #3)
Author: Layla Hagen
Synopsis: Eric Callahan is a powerful man, and his sharp business sense has earned him the nickname Shark. Yet under the strict façade is a man who loves his daughter and would do anything for her. When he and his daughter move to San Francisco for three months, he has one thing in mind: expanding his business on the West Coast. As a widower, Eric is not looking for love. He focuses on his company, and his daughter. Until he meets Pippa Bennett. She captivates him from the moment he sets eyes on her, and what starts as unintentional flirting soon spirals into something neither of them can control. Pippa Bennett knows she should stay away from Eric Callahan. After going through a rough divorce, she doesn’t trust men anymore. But there’s something about Eric that just draws her in. He has a body made for sin, and a sense of humor that matches hers. Not to mention that seeing how adorable he is with his daughter melts Pippa’s walls one by one. The chemistry between them is undeniable, but it’s the connection that grows deeper every day that has both of them wonder if love might be within their reach. When it’s time for Eric and his daughter to head back home, will he give up on the woman who has captured his heart or will he do everything in his power to remain by her side?
I´ve loved Layla Hagen´s stories since I first read a book by her which was Lost in Us. I´ve been lucky enough to appreciate her evolution as a writer through her beautiful stories. In her #Lost series I was amazed by her storytelling charm, in Withering Hope the characters´complexity, depth and above all the feelings both characters made me feel. And finally with The Bennett Family series, the utterly addictive dialogues and banter between all the sets of characters kept me on my toes the whole time.
Your Forever Love is the third instalment on The Bennett Family series and is the only one I have read from this series but I am planning on fixing it as soon as possible because I so want to stay immersed in this amazing world. I´ve always been spellbound by the city of San Francisco since I first visited it 6 years ago and this book has make me want to go back there.
The chemistry between Eric and Pippa is out of the charts and I am simply in love with both of them. Pippa is independent, brave, caring and protective of her family, and even though she has been hurt before she is willing to give love a second chance. However, Eric who has also been hurt is more reticent to open not just his heart but also his daughter´s heart to new chances at love. At the same time, all the secondary characters have their own true personalities that make you want to keep reading all the books just to discover how each of their stories will end.
All in all, I am enamored with Layla Hagen´s books, they are the perfect mix of beloved characters, believable stories, catching dialogues and beautiful settings. I would undoubtedly recommend this book to everyone who loves a good witty and funny romance with scorching scenes that will leave you wanting for more Bennett family adventures.
