Title: Your Inescapable Love (Bennett Family #4)
Author: Layla Hagen
Synopsis: A sizzling new friends-to-lover romance from a USA Today Bestselling Author. Each book in the Bennett family series is a full, standalone story. Max Bennett was nine years old the first time he met Emilia. The two formed a tight friendship that lasted for years until she moved away. Now, years later, Max enjoys a successful career, and his brilliant business sense helped him take his family’s company to the next level. Max loves his life: carefree and fun. He has everything he wants, and has no intentions of settling down anytime soon (even though his family might have other ideas). But when a chance encounter brings him face to face with Emilia, he starts questioning everything. The girl he last saw years ago has grown into a beautiful woman with sensual curves and a smile he can’t get out of his mind. Their chemistry is sizzling, and between old memories and new challenges, the two form a connection that is undeniable. Emilia Campbell has a lot on her plate, taking care of her sick grandmother. Still, the twenty-eight year old physical therapist faces everything with a smile on her face and a positive attitude. The one area in her life where she’s not too optimistic is love. After practically being left at the altar, Emilia has sworn off men. Until the childhood friend she hero-worshiped and hasn’t quite forgotten, steps into her clinic. Max is every bit the troublemaker she remembers, only now he has a body to drool over, and a smile to melt her panties. Not that she intends to do the former, or let the latter happen. They are both determined not to cross the boundaries of friendship. But as they spend more time together, their chemistry spirals out of control. Can Emilia trust her childhood hero with the key to her heart and accept she might have found her one true love?
I am a loyal fan of Layla Hagen´s books, I think I´ve read every one of them and every time I get the chance to read her stories I am left speechless. She can transport readers to a world where love wins against all odds. In each of the books from the Bennett Family series she approaches love from different perspectives. In Your Inescapable Love, the friend zoned love blossoms in a chemistry out of this world.
I utterly adore how believable Hagen´s stories are, I feel like I could undoubtedly live in the world she portrays so effortlessly.
I am blown away by her capacity of creating and developing a set of characters that seem real and tangible to all her readers. With each story readers get to know some new characters while at the same time reunite and reminisce with previous ones and keep seeing their story evolve. It is really difficult to choose a favorite couple because each story has something unique and magical about them, though I have to say I am addicted to friends to lovers’ storylines.
As always, Hagen´s writing is impeccable, well-paced and rich in portraying emotions through words. I won´t stop following her career because since the first book I´ve read by her, I have been hopelessly enchanted by her beautiful writing.
