~ 5 Second Time Around Stars ~

Every time I pick up a Bennett book it’s like coming home. I absolutely love this family and the ones that fall for them.

Your One True Love is the 8th Bennett book in the Bennett Family Series by Layla Hagen. Although each of these books are standalone novels and focus on a new couple, we do see other characters and couples from the previous books. So I would recommend reading this series

Favorite Quotes:

To her defense, she does have chronic bad luck in the dating department. But maybe her expectation that all men are assholes actually attracts assholes.

I have three sisters. Sugar’s the answer to everything.

I’m sorry about how I handled things on the phone. I was scared and the stupid came out.

I’m sure the right one’s out there somewhere. He just needs a map to find me. Or a compass. Better yet, a GPS. Mine’s definitely not working. Keeps sending me into dead ends.

Minor spoilers alert!!!
Writing style: Dual POVs

Determination is a Bennett trait, so it was no surprise to me that Daniel didn’t let any of Caroline’s hesitation about rekindling their college relationship shake his faith in their potential to go the distance this time around. And of course, they also had Daniel’s matchmaking sisters doing their best to engineer reasons for them to spend time together. Resistance finally proved entirely futile. 😉

Family! A blissful achievement between two people who are deeply in love. So, what is the main purpose of starting your own family? Is there any factor that says which way to build strong foundations so nothing can affect the structure?

I have to admit, this isn't my favorite of the Bennett books. Although you can see by the almost four-star rating that I think it's great... so that's saying something.

Let me get my issues out of the way up front... and they're not deal-breakers by any means.

There were a few trope-y plot-points in this story. Reunited lovers, Matchmakers (ongoing theme in this series), "I just want you to be happy," Misunderstandings, and of course, the Grand Romantic Gesture - just to name a few. I don't mind

We are slowly but surely working our way thru all the Bennett Family kids. Oh My Goodness what will we do when we run out of Bennetts to read about? I sure hope that our author has more cousins and friends on the horizon for us to fall in love with because I know I for one am not ready to call it quit with this family that I have grow to love as they have married and expanded with each book that has come out.

I'm happily addicted to the Bennett family. This is the longest series of stand-alones I've ever read, and I don't want it to end... ever!

Every single romance in this series is unique and beautiful. This one is NO exception. Actually, I've never been too fond of second chance stories because they start off as a bit of a sad memory, but from time to time I let myself be sucked into that vortex. Caroline and Daniel's romance is fully believable, incredibly hot and masterfully delivered.

Friendship brought them together. Youth tore them apart. Can distance and time allow them a second chance to get it right? Daniel and Caroline were the definition of young love. Immature, head over heels and heading toward heartache. The first heartbreak was a memory that stuck. Years later and a tad wiser, fate brings them back together, but will the pain of the past and the secrets of the present be the death nail for their happily ever after? There's a sadness to this romance, more than any o ...more

Daniel and Caroline were past lovers reunited thanks to the extra push from the Bennett sisters. They've still felt something for each other over the years as their lives went in separate directions but now that they're back together, they can't help but worry for their future. With Caroline's big secret, their relationship could end before it really begins.

This is the first book in this series I have read and I have to say that I have fell in love with the Bennett family. I will be going back and reading the others in this series now that I have finished this one. I found myself not being able to put down this book.

I really enjoy this series and this book was no different.

Daniel and Caroline are ex lovers who broke up when they left for college, but both always thought it was the one that got away. Enter the meddling, matchmaking sisters of Daniel and he and Caroline are once again thrown together.

Daniel tell Caroline that he has feeling for her and reservedly Caroline does the same. The Bennett name is high profile and in enters the paparazzi, who cause a glitch in their life, but they try to work around

I received this book as an arc from the Author.
This book is a second chance love story and that along with the fact that it is a Bennett family book is all I needed to know. I've read the entire Bennett series by Layla Hagen and I highly recommend this series to anyone who loves romance, friends and family. The characters are believable and easy to like and the stories are well developed.

"Five Second Chance Romance Stars"

Gah... I devoured this book.  SERIOUSLY what will I do once every Bennett has their story? Are there support groups?  In all seriousness -- Daniel and Caroline's love is so sweet, I swooned more than Caroline! 

Daniel & Caroline have a past that neither one of them completely walked away from.  Daniel kept in touch with Caroline's Dad and assisted him with his business/planning.  She remained friends with mama Bennett & all the sisters (and it's also safe

loved this. Daniel and Caroline had a love that was young, fun ad both thought it was the one but life happens and you chase your dreams or what seems to be your dreams, 10 years later they run back into each other which isn't hard when your family is plotting for you, but now Daniel is not letting her go. He's never really moved on and that's cause he still loves her, can he convince her that there are meant to be , that their love deserves a second chance.

I do love a good one who got away story. From the past books I've read I can see Daniel and Caroline danced around each other. You know there is history there what with the matchmaking by the Bennett ladies to push them together. Former college sweethearts torn apart by circumstances.

I have to say Daniel is swoonworthy indeed, from his determined, loyal and sweet side. To his rugged side in being outdoorsy. He wants Caroline back and will pull out all the stops. She might be wary cause of the pa

All of these books are the same. It seems the only thing that changes is the names of the main characters and their jobs.
An exquisite and dazzling contemporary romance that packs a whole lot of heart and heat...

Oh. My. Good. Goodie. Good. Goooooooooood. GOD. Can these Bennet men get any yummier? I swear this series just keeps getting better. Every single one of this books leaves me in a complete and utter puddle of mush, and Your One True Love very much stuck with that consensus. I'd be lying if I said that I wasn't waiting and praying for this book from the moment I finished Your Fierce Love (Clara and Blake's st
Layla Hagen never ceases to impress me with her writing talent. This series hit me with all the feels for so many reasons. It makes me laugh, cry and, swoon in equal measure. Just when I think she’s covered every trope and every subplot possible she comes back and hits me with another. There is a subject in this book which is very close to my heart and although I felt to was too fast (that’s just because of my personal experience and I know I’m being vague but no spoilers! – but it’s the epilogu ...more

OH MY GOSH!!! I am so in love right now! Layla you never cease to amaze me! I am once again enamored by another Bennett. This book just proved that this is one of my favorite series EVER! My craving for more of the Bennett family love story just keeps getting stronger with every book being added. Thank you so much Layla for the ARC. Truly another wonderful reading experience that has plastered a smile on my face while journeying with Daniel and Caroline back to each other's arms.

This is a standalone story, with no cliffhanger, that does not require reading the previous stories, but you really cannot go wrong with reading any of this awesome series! Each of the characters are unique, yet well developed. The Bennett’s are one of my all-time favorite series/family’s. They are loving, protective, and fiercely loyal to each other. I highly recommend the entire series!

Oh the Bennett family.. I love how strong they are together and the strength and love that keeps them going. This was one of my favorite books in the series and in my opinion, one of the best.

How does Ms Hagen continue to create such great story lines for even more beautiful characters. I didn’t think after Sebastian I would find another member of the Bennett Family that I could possibly love, but each of these stories has taken a piece of my heart each story. But I think my new favourite family member is Daniel and Caroline.

One True Love is Daniel and Caroline’s story, and it’s a beautiful second chance love story.

For anyone new to this author, who has found this particular book, while it definitely can be read as a stand alone it is part of a larger series of books that follow the nine Bennett siblings. Nine. Three sisters, six brothers, including two sets of twins. This is the eighth in the series focused on Daniel Bennett who is Blake Bennett’s twin

This series is one of my favorite romance families ever. The Bennetts are all around (written) as great people that you hope exist in this world with their love and support of one another. Their loves aren't perfect and they work hard for what they want and family is always first.

Daniel Bennett is a sweetheart and a ladies man, but watching the members of his family find their true love, settle down and have children is starting to show Daniel exactly what he is missing. His mind always goes bac

Your One True Love is the story of Daniel and Caroline.
