I have definitely left my heart in San Francisco and it’s not because I am from this beautiful city but the fact that Layla Hagen continues to write swoonworthy, heart-palpitating, tangible and sweet love stories following the Bennett family of San Francisco.

This is the third book in the Bennett family series but can be read as a stand alone. This is the second book I have read by this author and it was a very different style of writing than what I was expecting.

Pippa Bennett is going through negotiations with her ex-husband over their divorce agreement. This guy completely pulled the wool over her eyes and has left her feeling very mistrustful of any man that shows interest in her. It has also meant that she is reluctant to get involved with any ma

Pippa has had her heart broken and then stomped on. Although she has no trust in a relationship she thinks a mini relationship with a handsome man might work. Something casual with a definite end date. Until they start to heal each other and find love.

Another spellbinding and captivating read by the talented Layla Hagen. I've been following this series, and with both of the protagonists' man candy bros off the market, it's now the mighty Pippa to now meet her match and what a ride it was!! Oh the mighty eldest Bennett sibling has fallen!!

Her chemistry and pairing with Eric was lovely...just lovely. I loved their dynamics and backgrounds and how their triumphs and heartbreaks from their previous relationships led them to the way they are now.

I didn't enjoy this as much as I hoped I would. Clearly, I'm in the minority here.

I'm going to keep this review short and simple. I find this book lacking in major aspects: distinguished characters, captivating plot, angsty conflict, and enjoyable writing style. Sometimes I can't even determine the differences of the characters. If their names weren't stated after the dialogues, I wouldn't even know who was speaking. They all sounded the same.

I do not like this book. So far I read 2 books on Bennet series and 1 on Connor series. So far the Bennet series is a disappointment. I do not expect a complicated character development. But give me something on the story, convincing characters. Here I found nothing.

I do not feel anything. No chemistry. No hot anticipation on the sparks flying. I wait and wait and wait and nothing. The steamy sex is fall flat.

What can I say about the Bennett family that I haven't said in my previous 2 reviews. Well this time the tables are turned on matchmaker Pippa and she get's her own chance at love with alpha billionaire and widowed dad Eric Callahan, swoon!

Like the previous books, Your Forever Love picks up where Logan and Nadine left us in Your Captivating Love, and focuses on eldest Bennett sister Pippa, if you've read the previous 2 then you are already familiar with Pippa and her

Your Forever Love is my first book by Layla Hagen and it certainly will not be my last. This book was sexy, entertaining and a whole lot of fun.

Told from dual points of view, Your Forever Love follows the story of Eric and Pippa. Fresh from her own divorce, Pippa is used to being the matchmaker. She loves nothing more than helping others find love, even if her opinion of love isn’t what it used to be. So, when the tables are turned and her family takes matchmaking into th

Favorite Quotes:

This man is eye-cupcake with a side of chocolate sauce, and if he talks about playing Belle for his daughter for one more second, my ovaries might jump him.

Tell me about you, but please, make an effort to find something vile and repugnant. So far, I've learned that you get along with my daughter, are funny as hell, and have a body made for sin. Bad combo for my determination to remain a monk.

His caresses speak of promises, his kisses taste like dreams. I believe every single word
Although this is a great story about two people taking another chance on love after some really heart-breaking experiences, it was constantly interrupted by repetitious sex scenes. Pippa, Eric and Julie are awesome characters and just as you are pulled into the action-another sex scene. Really???

Till 90% of the book the hero was with one foot out from relationship.
From the start he was a pussy-teaser! He said he was damaged goods! And he was after our heroine all the time! But always remembering her that it's temporarily... WTF!!!??

Perfect story to get you in the mood, for reading of course. I like Pippa, tenacious personality, charismatic and talented, also there’s a mischievous childlike playfulness about her. The tension of resistance made me laugh and the teasing and flirting I look forward to when I read Layla Hagen’s books. I adore the storyline, how can you not like Pippa? How can you not like the Bennett Family? Someone enters Pippa’s life, okay another Alpha male Eric, tall dark and handsome. Eric turns Pippa’s li ...more

Endlich zurück im Bennet Universum. Hier nun endlich auch Pippas Geschichte, die ich in Band 1 & 2 schon sehr ins Herz geschlossen hatte.

Layla Hagen überzeugt hier wieder mit ihrem lockeren modernen Schreibstil, der den Leser direkt in die Geschichte zieht.

Nachdem man ja schon in Band 1 und 2 etwas von Pippa & ihrer gescheiterten Ehe erfährt, bekommt man noch mehr Informationen und versteht immer besser die Abneigung der Bennett Geschwister zu ihrem Exmann.

Can two people with troubled past find happiness when they are least expecting it?

Pippa has gone through a rough marriage where her husband was verbally abusive in worst of ways. Her divorce was also horrible, but luckily she was independent and owned her own company. Eric Callahan is someone who hr brothers know and respect. He is only in town for two months and warns her to stay away, but why not make the best of their short time together?

How long will it take for his charm and sweet gestures

Hmm, Was dissapointed by this book. Whilst loving the Bennett series and really enjoying the Logan and Nadine story I was looking forward to Pippa's happy ever after. Meeting Eric and Julie started off really well but when things got a little hot and heavy she came across as a really selfish lover and it was all about her. There is that theme across all the books but more so with this one.

Also, during the event of the second hospital event, I can't believe that she would react in the way she did

I love this book. Eric is a single dad, he lost his wife 5 years ago and now concentrates on his daughter and his business. Pippa was burned, badly, by her ex-husband. These two were amazing. They don't want a relationship, heck, they don't even want to date but between his daughter and her siblings they don't stand a chance. Add in their smoking hot chemistry and their genuine feelings toward each other... swoon worthy! I loved seeing Pippa finally get her HEA plus we get to catch up with the w ...more

Ich habe mich schon sehr auf den dritten Band der Reihe gefreut. Nun geht es endlich um eine weibliche Bennett. Die gesamte große Familie habe ich schon seit dem ersten Band in mein Herz geschlossen und war gespannt, wie es nun mit Pippa weiter geht. Alle Bände können auch unabhängig voneinander gelesen werden. Ich empfehle sie euch aber alle!

Loved getting Pippa's story!

*3.5 Stars*
Pippa Bennett has been the driving force behind all the matchmaking in the Bennett family - as evidenced by Sebastian's wedding and Logan's engagement - so it was fun to see the tables turned on her.

Pippa hasn't had it easy in love - the only one to have married and then divorced in the Bennett clan. Her ex was a real piece of work - marrying her for her money - and he did a number of her self-confidence.

Great story of Pippa Bennett and Eric Callahan. Eric is a widow with a young daughter from Boston visiting California for the summer with his daughter. When he meets Pippa he couldn’t believe he can love again.

Layla has done it again!!!! Every single book of this series is phenomenal!! I could not put this book down. I love the Bennett's (the originals and all the ones brought in to the family)!!
Pippa has always been the "matchmaker" in the Bennett family, but her love life sucks. She married a creep and tried so hard just to make it work, all she wanted was a family. But her ex only wanted to put in his time so that he could get money once the prenup was up. Pippa caught wind of it and left him. (Sid

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this family that Layla created. And I'm SO happy that she made them such a large family, because that means they will be with us for a long time!

Pippa, so far, is my favorite Bennett. She's loyal, artistic and mischievous when it comes to playing cupid for her siblings. But after a failed marriage, she's lost some of her spark, and her siblings would love nothing better than to turn her matchmaking ways around on her for once!
