Favorite Quotes:

I was sporting a grin that took up my entire face—the kind of photo dentists might display in their waiting room.

We're not doomed to repeat our parents' mistakes, you know. Or I'll end up with a bad perm after the age of sixty, or a slight wine addiction. Or both. Imagine the horror."

My Review:

I adored this couple, and what a treat to read a story where the characters aren’t in constant conflict or turmoil but are happy and playfully enjoying and supporting each other instead. It

When life doesn't go quite how we planned, it's the bumps in the road that point us in the right direction. Graham and Lori hit a few walls before they found themselves where they needed to be. Wild with You takes a look at the road less traveled. Lori had big dreams, but her dreams veered off course when she was given her greatest blessing. Her little boy. In that instant she found the courage to begin again and create a secure life for herself and her child. When Graham comes into her life, ...more

Do you honestly expect me to write a bad review for this book? Or maybe not say that I enjoyed the book? I am starting to think that I will never give a bad rating or review to this author. Graham could have been jaded or bitter about love and marriage and ruin the story, but instead, he kept supporting his friends with their marriage preparations and helped them with the budget. He was a great friend and I loved his relationship with Amber and her man. Of course, he got the biggest reward in ...more
This was a sweet love story.
No doubt.
But it was .....boring.
Everything was just going slow.
DNF for now.

Although I really liked the characters of Lori and Graham (along with Lori’s siblings), the story just seemed lacking, the writing a little off, and too sweet to me (I.e. “I’m going to love you all night”, which was said multiple times). Even the storyline about Lori’s ex didn’t feel like there was too much to it. Overall, I did like the story, just not so much the writing this time (Sorry Layla). I do look forward to reading about the remaining Conner siblings.

I think I had a goofy smile on my face the whole time reading Wild with You! I could have not loved Lori and Graham more. Milo added, makes my heart all warm and fuzzy. I love the Connor clan and enjoy the closeness that the siblings have for each other.

Going back to Graham. He surprised me through out the story. When we are first introduced to him, he had this cocky attitude that made you think he was a true a**hole. But then you get into his head and he was so much more than the external

You of the things I love most about these past 2 family saga's (The Bennett family and now the Conner family) I've read by Layla Hagen are that they are full of so much emotion, love, family, swooning, sexiness and not a ton of drama. It doesn't need it. There is always bit of it, but it's always worked out without dragging on too long or being huge part of the story. It's just full of nothing but a fantastic, feel good story that you want to sit down and read from cover to cover. ...more

Let me start by saying I love all things Layla Hagen. There - I said it, I admitted it. I have been enjoyed this series since the beginning and I have adored Hagen's writing style since the Bennett Series. I honestly think she has such a fun, entertaining yet sweet feel-good writing style that just makes my heart flutter. And even though I am not a big fan of the 'let me make love to you'

I love all your books. I remember being sad when the last Bennett book was release but when the Connors family was release i could feel all the same emotions from the Bennetts family i can't wait to read the next book and hope that when the Connors family's series is done that there will more books to come from both families.

Lori and Graham displays all the characteristics of people who have been hurt by people whom they had trusted the most.
Both are afraid to start anew. Especially Lori because she is also a single mother.
But when they meet, they know that it is only a matter of time before their passion crumbles all their walls and takes them to a path which they both fear to tread again.
Can they do it? Is their Love strong enough?
The best part about Hagen's book is that she leaves no stones unturned when it comes
Sweet and sensual, this romance is to be savoured as delicatessen.

A lovely couple like Lori and Graham is the perfect antidote for boredom or restlessness. The author has a lively writing style full of wit, and each of her (blessedly numerous) stories hit a ten in my go-to list.

In this one, there is a hard-working woman whom I admire for her tireless commitment. And I loved every aspect of her wedding-planning business. I envisioned every little detail thanks to her professional expertise. She’

You know whenever Layla Hagen comes out with a new book it's never a question of if I'm going to get the book but how damn good is it going to be this time. With the Bennett family I was so obsessed with them but the Connors family I love them even more because of the bond and the strong and intelligent characters they are even after losing their parents. Not a lot of family stick together after tragedy.

Lori and Graham chemistry is so off the charts hot. Lori is sweet, strong and independent

Lori Connor is a dedicated single mom and successful event planner, she's always concerned about her kid Milo that sometimes she forgets herself. After getting burned by her ex she's wary of dating and getting involved with a guy but there's something about Graham that catches her attention. Sparks flew early on but with a reluctant Lori Graham takes his time to chip her walls.

Graham is his own wedding skeptic but something about Lori makes him want to try this new relationship. They fit right

Sweet sexy goodness! I loved Wild With You! It’s got heart, it’s got heat, it’s got the perfect touch of drama to keep things interesting and it’s wonderfully written. What more could a girl ask for? I love me some single parent romance, and I love it even more when there’s a couple with an immediate connection and that’s exactly what I got in this book.
Lori and Graham have the kind of chemistry that keeps you glued to the pages wanting more. They’re sweet, they’re hot, and they will steal your

Graham was swoon worthy from the turn of page one. Being the owner of a high profile sports team, I had totally pegged him for "that" arrogant guy -- NOT at ALL the case. He was a true gentleman to Lori and her son. He offered up concert tickets, making her and her son dinner, and integrating into their lives. His life was not without its challenges, he has a father who was no better than Milo's biological father and Lori's ex.

I am already loving the tight knit bonds we are seeing with the

I sooo loved the main characters and their love story. As an event/wedding planner myself I have to say that Lori had it easy with her brides as we all know that they can be quite tricky and difficult to work with. Nonetheless, you can see that she loves what she's doing and she literally lives through the eyes of each bride. Graham is the perfect hero that Layla always has us sigh after and wish that he would be real.

A second chance love story with amazing main characters and a sweet little

You know, if you were looking for an easy book to read whilst just taking some time out for yourself, then look no further.

Once again Ms Hagen delivers a smooth, sexy romance, laced with humour and emotion.

The characters hit all the right notes, including a certain scene stealing young man, whose interactions with Graham in particular just made me smile.

I'm loving getting to know the Connor Clan.

When single mom, wedding planner Lori Connor meets Graham Frazier at a client meeting, she's a little put off by his cynical tone. Sure, he's obviously got a generous heart (he's hosting her clients' wedding who happen to be his best friends), and he's seriously hot; but his seemingly cynical tone doesn't sit well with her. She doesn't recognize him at first, but he owns the soccer club one of her brothers plays for, and she soon realizes that she's heard he's divorced. That must explain his ...more

This was the 2nd book in the Connor Family series. They can all be read as stand-alone stories which I like, but so far this series is great and leaves me wanting to keep on reading!

This is Lori and Graham’s story. Lori is a single Mom to Milo. She has done well for herself, but since getting pregnant with her son she has sworn off men. Her ex was a real jerk by the spoilers from me though. She has focused her life on her career and Milo. She meets Graham while planning the wedding of

Ms. Hagen writes a very good entertaining story. Meets my basic criteria that I must like and care about the heroine and hero. Within the confines of the genre the story must be believable. No, that could or would never happen in real life. Our lovers meet, fall in love and work their way through problems that could arise in any relationship in a reasonably adult like fashion. There's some drama to go along with the gooey romance and steamy sex but none of it feels manufactured just to bring ...more

Planning makes perfect

This is Lori's story. In this book we are introduced to Graham. Graham is jace's boss. Although Lori and Graham have crossed paths in the past they never officially met until she planed a wedding he was the best man for. Lori has a son and is a single mom so she is careful with what she does that could effect her son and also herself because she doesn't want to get hurt again. Lori and Graham have chemistry off the charts. But, Graham comes with baggage too. Enjoy reading

Beautiful Love Story

As she did so well with the Bennett family, Ms. Hagen has continued to create great stories about members of the close knit Connor family. The story of Graham and Lori tests their insecurities and self doubt, but will they allow those things to stand in the way of their HEA? Filled with humorous banter and fierce sibling loyalty, this is one of those books you hate to see come to an end.

Great Love Story!

I really enjoyed this sexy easy story. Graham and Lori, two people who have been burned in their past love lives, discover love and trust with each other. One thing I enjoyed about this story was that there were not dumb misunderstandings and assumptions made that drive you crazy like so many other romances have. I look forward to reading the other Connor and Bennet stories.
