The Bennett family is back and our hearts are once again left in San Francisco. With the oldest sibling, Sebastian all matched up and is about to tie the knot with Ava, it seems the Bennett family “matchmaker Pippa” is ready for another matchmaking session. And this time, she is ready to set up her second oldest brother, Logan with Ava’s best friend, Nadine Hawthorne.

I reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of the book.

I love the Bennett's so much - and this series is just so easy to enjoy. Logan is the epitome of a big brother and he brought that same protective nature in to his relationship with Nadine, which garnered mixed results. Both of them are such likable characters and while it wasn't exactly a case of instal-love between the two of them, I did appreciate that there wasn't a lot of angst or "will they/won't they" involved. It was easy to see that even th

I love reading about the Bennett family. What a delicious story about a sexy Alpha male and a strong heroine. This series is one, not to miss...

Mit Diamonds for Love - Verlockende Nähe kehren wir einmal mehr nach San Francisco zurück zur Bennett Familie. Und nachdem mir das erste Buch gut gefallen hat, immerhin war es eins meiner Highlights im Februar, habe ich mich regelrecht auf dieses Buch gefreut. Denn die Bücher von Layla Hagen versprechen immer wieder leicht und witzig und zuckersüß zu werden, ohne die ganzen Dramen die meist mit dem New-Adult Genre einhergehen. Also genau das Richtige für mich im Moment.

Another win for Layla Hagen. She keeps surprising me with the stories she creates. I didn't think I could love a book as much as the Lost Series but then in walks the Bennett's. I am completely obsessed with this family and the men that make it up. The first novel in this series follows Ava and Sebastian as they fall in love. Now we meet Logan the brother that believes women should be spoiled and cherished (where can I get one??) and he quickly finds a place in my heart. Nadine is Ava's best fri ...more

#1 reason to love Logan Bennett
His view of women "I was in high school when I decided I wouldn’t be an asshole. I made the decision after I overheard a moron saying he wanted to “tap that.” He meant Pippa. That’s when I realized every girl was someone’s sister or daughter, and it wasn’t fair to treat them in ways I’d hate anyone to treat my sisters."
Logan and Nadine have this instant attraction. She is trying to open her own clothing boutique. Logan gives her some assistance. Their banter and co

I am in LOVE with the Bennett Family. Layla Hagen has created such an amazing cast of characters, I can’t help but want to be in this family, or at least an “adopted” member of the Bennett family.

With each book I read of Layla’s, I fall more and more in love with her writing. She gives us such sweet love stories that also have an underlying message. Her stories move right along but without anythi

My first experience with Layla Hagen was the fourth book in the Bennett Family series, Your Inescapable Love, and I adored that book. Unfortunately, the other books I've read in this series just haven't been stand-outs. Your Captivating Love is my least favorite so far, but I am glad I read it.

Your Captivating Love is about Logan Bennett, the CFO of Bennett Enterprises and Nadine Hawthorne, who's just moved to San Francisco to open up a dress shop. Nadine is finally going to open her dream shop.

Like it was ever an option, to not give any of these stories in this series five stars. I’m only 2 in and so in love with the Bennett’s I cannot get enough of them. I thought for sure no one could outdo Sebastian Bennett, but I adored Logan and his take all attitude. Layla has created not one but 2 loving families in the Bennett and Connor family, that are like a huge game of dominoes. Each brother/cousin falling in love and funding their fo

This was just okay for me. It took me forever to get into it, although I did eventually. The banter was only so-so, and the business aspects to Nadine opening her shop did not make sense. Like, I don't think she was open on Saturdays. I mean, what kind of clothes store, even a high end one, isn't open on Saturdays? But it was cute, and I'm still curious about the other Bennett siblings. Full review soon.
The Book Junkie Reads . . .
Logan and Nadine were setup. They were thrown together at every opportunity. The meshed well with each other but a set up neither wanted. Neither was looking, but they found something worth looking over their past hurts and wrongs. Logan was everything including stubborn to the bone, but very loyal. Nadine had him beat with how stubborn she could be. But she was also funny, loyal, charming, and sexy.

Watching these two move forward with everything was captivating.

Narration good.

I have read everything Layla Hagen has written and loved everything that she has done with every book. I loved the fun side of Layla in this book. This book was about second chances, love, and finding a family that she didn't know she needed. It's great to see all the growth both in the second book of this series and also the author. Layla could write anything and make you feel that it was really happening right in front of you. With the strong c

There is something so peaceful about returning to the Bennett world. It's like returning home after a trip away. I like seeing the transition of the ‘matchmaking’ skills from Pippa now being focused on Logan after Sebastian had given in to his feelings and love for Ava.

Logan and Nadine (Ava’s best friend) are the focus of this book but despite Pippa’s matchmaking, it seemed like these two already had feelings for each other. Nadine is looking for a retail space so she can sell her luxury line an

Your Captivating Love (The Bennett Family) by Layla Hagen

The Bennetts are back. More adorable than ever. What struck me in Sebastian and Ava's story (Your Irresistible Love) is how close this family is. They work together, play together, worry together and even do matchmaking together. It's the Bennetts against the world and everything they do is out of love for one another. Layla Hagen uses family as a stepping stone and a focal point. By doing this she lets her readers know what is important t

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 brot

This was the perfect weekend read, where you can curl up and lose yourself in a really good book. I enjoyed this book and the characters even more than book one and I think that's because I engaged with Logan and Nadine more on an emotional level. The lead males in this series so far, are not bad boys, these are men with maturity and integrity but realistic all the same. I have to say I find this a refreshing change, I like a bad boy like most readers but I enjoy diversity.

Logan and Nadine kept me captivated throughout the whole entire story. The Bennett family is such an interesting bunch of characters, I laughed and fanned myself because it got ridiculously warm but I also said ‘spoil brat’ not at Nadine. Nadine was someone to reckon with, fiercely independent with a heart of gold. Logan steps in, protector and suave as ever decides to make Nadine his one and only.

I liked what I saw of Logan in the first book, so I was excited when I saw this was going to be his story. He has that whole delicious Alpha thing going. I didn't realize that from the first book, because he was the "nice" brother, but he knows how to put on the smolder with some authority and get his way without seeming like a total jerk.

Nadine is fun. I love her dream of opening a bridal boutique with her own dresses. That would be the ultimate in fun jobs,

Layla Hagen has hit another home run on this one… Your Captivating Love picks up right were Your Irresistible Love left off. I absolutely LOVE the Bennett’s and I wish I could be an adoptive Bennett.

This family is very genuine and even though they own a multi-billion dollar company and are very down to earth. Logan is the CFO, but with Nadine CFO has a totally different definition " Chief Fun officer". He takes his job very serious but his family

3.5, i know it is stupid thought, but i want a guy who can take care everything for me, no need to fight for my own, someone being there to take care it.

i want to be Nadine when she is and SF but not the one in NC. Anyway, we all understand that "no pain no gain", it is a dream i can hope i will have one day. Logan and Nadie story is sweet, a man always protect his love and family, a lady has hope to achieve her dream. the family of Bennett are amazing too, the silbings always show their support

First of all thank you Layla for this ARC!! I will give my honest review in return.
I LOVE this book. I love Logan soooo much. This book is a story of to heart broken people coming together. I love how it just flowed and there was no extreme sex or arguing. I love how Logan was there for Nadine every step of the way. He made her dreams come true. I love how Nadine took care of herself and did slowly except his help.
This is just a well written book with a HEA. Must read

Logan and Nadine's story.

Ava's best friend Nadine finally loves to to town to start over after a series of failings. Bring on the matchmaking Bennett family and the introduction of Logan to Nadine.

Hot for each other from the start, but reluctant to date, can they push through barriers to be together?

Too much lusty internal monologue and not enough story. And that was in the first few chapters. I won't apply a rating since I didn't get past those first few chapters, but note that it takes A LOT for me to DNF.

Meine Meinung:
Das Cover von dem Buch sah mal wieder unglaublich schön aus. Dieser Teil ist ebenso ein absoluter Blickfänger wie auch der 1. Band, allerdings sieht er auch fast genauso aus wie der Band 1. Doch das ist meiner Meinung nach überhaupt nicht schlimm, da ich es oftmals auch echt total gut finde, wenn man sieht das Bücher aus einer Reihe stammen.

Der Schreibstyle von der Autorin war auch hier wieder perfekt. Dank ihres Schreibstyles fühle ich mich jedesmal dem Buch und auch den Charakter
