Favorite Quotes:

I practically flew to him. It felt that way, at least. Like I was so light that my feet weren’t even touching the ground, merely skipping over the surface.

“Just keep your eyes open for a smart and very sexy guy. Strong arms are important. Six-pack always a plus. Great skills in bed are also a requirement, but obviously, there’s no way to check that beforehand.” … I made a mental note never to ask about girl talk again.

3.5 stars!!

Oh how my love for the Bennett’s has now morphed onto the Connors!! This is book three of “The Connor Family” series and can be read as a complete stand alone.

To be honest I think the Bennett’s set the bar really high for me because I just can not seem to get into the Connors book nearly as much. I love all the characters. Will is a sexy, slightly egotistical police officer who is out for justice. His brother Jace, ahh I can’t wait to find out more about this good boy. And the other

I honestly don’t know how to rate Meant for You the third book in Layla Hagen’s Connors series? For the first 80% of the book I’d give it a solid 3.5 stars inching towards 4. Okay so from the moment our heroine Paige returns to her L.A. office you don’t have to be Nostradamus to predict her career path or the future of her late grandmother’s inn. And maybe I’m the only guy in the world who thinks oral sex is every bit as sexually intimate as intercourse, so Will only going down on Paige sticking ...more

I can't believe that book 3 in The Connor Family series is already out! Three books in a year has been a lovely treat to us as readers and I am happy to say that the writing quality hasn't dropped! I devoured the book and I was very happy and satisfied with the ending result. There was some conflict between Paige and Will that wasn't to my liking, but overall Meant for you was another great addition to the series and on the author's works. We even got a crossover with some of the Bennett's and t ...more

I absolutely love each and every story Layla Hagen publishes, And Meant for You was just as good as the rest!
Will knows what he wants out of life and he's content until he runs into Paige and all of his well thought out plans dwindle in the wind.
Paige Loves her job and family, she wasn't expecting love to knock on her door and take her by surprise.
My favorite things about This series is that you get to see all of the characters and their significant others as well as The Bennett clan. I lov

I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.

This is Will Connor and Paige's story. Will is LAPD, it's how he copes with the death of his parents and the fact that the person who hit their car was never found and tried. For a long time, his work has been his salvation. Then he meets Paige, a woman who gives him a whole new set of reasons to care about life and open up to love.

Paige is an Army daughter. She knows what it's like to have people you love in combat, potentially

I loved this book! It's extra awesome when you mix the Bennett's with the Connor's, because it gets extra fun. Will is the safe, guarded cop that doesn't need help finding someone for himself (despite his families interference). When he meets Paige for the first time, there was a definite connection , but she takes some time to realize they are perfect for each other. She has her own personal hesitation to get over, which makes sense, even to Will.

Meant For You was an enjoyable read and another great addition to the Connor Family series. But I have to be honest and say, it didn’t WOW me. Something was missing and I can’t figure out what it was.

I found the storyline entertaining and the characters were definitely relatable and easy to love. Maybe the lack of major drama is what was missing...that element that keeps you turning the pa

Meant for You (The Connor Family) by Layla Hagen  
It happened in an instant. He lost his head and found his heart. For Will Connor, Paige Lamonica spells the beginning of the rest of his life. Now he just has to convince her to take a chance on him. Hagen keeps the sparks, but tones down a bit on the sizzle. Meant For You requires patience, because it packs a great deal of heart into a sometimes steamy, yet always enchanting read.

This is the third book in the Connor Family series. As with the others, the characters are well written and the story easily draws you in. Will and Paige are perfect together. Their chemistry is immediate and they bring out the sassy in each other. It is fun to watch their relationship develop. Sexy cop meets tough business woman. This story seems to have a little more “sexy time” than the others too. As much as I did enjoy the overall story, this one is the first one that left me wanting more a ...more
Another lovely book in the series :) Will and Paige keep things interesting and as usual I love the whole family.

Meant for You is the third story in The Connor Family series and I love each story. Layla Hagen is an amazing storyteller and I just love her books. I love how she mixes in bittersweet moments for each of the Connors. I love the dynamic of the Connor family and their extended family, the Bennetts. Meant for You is the story of Will Connor, who is a police officer and Paige Lamonica. Will is the third oldest of the Connor children, behind Landon and Val. It was Will's job to take care of Lori, Ja ...more
Flirty, fun and exquisitely sensual, this novel is a joy for all the reading senses.

This series is the right kind of addiction. I've been more than ready for the cop in the family. I couldn't help but fall in love with Will Connor. He's a good man, a detective riding a bike, and a god giving kisses. To be honest, the female character is equally important for a good connection and I adored this woman. She is sassy, smart, funny, and has a job that drives her with an aim to help people.

Hot, sexy love!

This is the story of Will Conner and Paige Bennett. Paige is home to fix up her grandmother’s inn prior to selling it. Her grandmother has passed away, and Paige and her siblings are working together to fix up the old place. Will stops by the inn after hearing a call that there may be trespassers at the old inn. But when Will sees Paige (and vice versa), the chemistry sizzles. Paige is reluctant as she remembers her family waiting for her father when he was on a dangerous mission

Will Connors is a cop and comes from a big family. He had lost his parents in an accident when he was a teenager. Growing up with his siblings has made them all close and they are always there for each other.
Paige also has a few siblings as well and they are also close. When Paige is asked to get the Inn, her grandmother owned, ready to sell, she meets Will and the sparks and sexual tension starts from the beginning. Paige has loved her job but her boss is making it harder for her to like it.

Lets be honest here, I just love all of Layla Hagen's books and this one is no exception. Meant for You is an absolute swoon fest. I just love reading about the Conner family and it is even better because you also get to catch up a little here and there with the Bennett family. This story is entertaining, sweet and sexy. I loved it from the beginning to the end, can't wait for the next one in the series. Don't panic though, it can totally be read as a stand alone. ...more

Will and Paige are going to knock your socks off, folks. Seriously. There is so much to love with these characters. He's a detective. She's a bigwig at a non-profit. They are two of the best fictional humans on the planet. So, not only are they amazing people, but they have some of the HOTTEST chemistry. EVER. I mean, I should expect no less from LH right? The woman can do no wrong, y'all. Meant For You was INCREDIBLE.

Layla Hagen is an automatic one-click author for me. I just love her style. The way she writes and the types of stories she tells. They always leave me with a sense of relaxed happiness. They’re so feelgood. And of course, sexy. They’re stories with heart. You just can’t help reading them in one sitting and wanting more. She’s definitely a binge read type of author.

Meant for You is the third book in the Connor family series and it might be my favourite so far. It is an interconnected standalone

Meant For You is AMAZING! I was already drawn to the book at just 2% in. Well, who wouldn't be when you just met a very hot and sexy detective. I've already had a glimpse of Will in Landon and Lori's books, but I was still pleasantly surprised. I couldn't stop smiling and got swooning early on. I've read all of Layla's books and she never ceases to amaze me. I find her books always so refreshing. Thank you so much Layla for the ARC.

Meant For You is my favorite Connor Family book yet! I could not get enough of this story and characters! Layla Hagen is definitely out to give the Bennett Family a run for their money with their cousins. I look forward to my Bennett/Connor stories and I am glad the author doesn't keep us waiting long.

This is a scorcher. The Connor Family is proving to be just as lovable and addictive as the Bennett Family Series. The series is getting better and better with every book.

Will is a Detective who joined the forces for personal and all other right reasons. His job and his love for his family are first and foremost in his life. Until now!

Paige is the director of a non profit organisation. She has just returned to LA to put her grandmother's affairs in order and back to working with her old team.

My first foray into Layla Hagan’s books was The Bennett Family Series. When she began The Connor Family series, I counted myself in. If they were anything like their cousins, I knew I would be hooked. And hooked I am.

The third book of her series, Meant for You, follows the second oldest brother of the Connor Family, Will. A police detective and owner of various rental properties, Will is not looking for love, but, one day, he meets Paige accidentally, and he’s smitten. Paige has just moved from

My three sisters were on the front porch, the ranch-style home, whispering and giggling. When the words sexy time reached my ears, I thought it would be smarter to announce my presence. I absolutely didn’t want to eavesdrop on their girl talk.
“Girls, change the subject. I will pretend I haven't’ heard anything.”

I’d always followed my instincts, and I felt it deep in my bones that I wanted Paige in my life, perhaps even needed her.

“You’re the police. Rules are your job.”

This was such a great book. I really enjoyed the plot and characters. Meant For You is exactly what I expected with the title. This is a story about two people who were destined to cross paths. This book has romance and heat which I love.

The plot of this book is good. You have serious Will who is just living his life. Then he meets Paige. She is a spitfire who challenges him in ways he hasn't had before. When that chance meeting turns into him going out of his way to help her, things start to he

Meant for You by Layla Hagen
“Love finds a way, 5 stars”

Will is a serious guy with a serious wild streak, or maybe it’s the fact that he meets spunky Paige who catches his eye. There is something about her that calls to him and he can’t wait to figure her out. The closer they get the deeper he falls but he has his work cut out for him where she’s concerned. What he didn’t expect was for her to fit into his life so seamlessly. Only question is will he be able to keep her there?
