Only With You
Connor Family #4
Layla Hagen

After my previous read that absolutely blew me away, Only With Me was going to have to be HuGe to win me over…. But I secretly knew it would, Layla Hagen, the Bennett’s and now the Connor family always reel you in one family member at a time. I do love an alpha male, and when the story is focused on a woman it sometimes portrays them as weak, needing a man to make her successful, but (I should kick my own butt for even thinking that), but not when it

5* Sizzling Stars

Once again Layla has delivered a wonderful addition to the Connor Series. The relationship between Val and Carter was slow burn and flirtatious in the beginning and then when they could not deny their attraction to one another anymore the chemistry between them was sizzling.

I enjoyed that this was not young love without any responsibilities. Val and Carter have parental duties in common. Val, together with her twin Landon, is the eldest of the Connor family and has looked afte

Let me begin by saying, I'm a huge Layla Hagen fan. She has such a way with words that you are brought right into the story and the emotions the characters are feeling. Val and Carter's story was off the charts. Carter is definitely your next book boyfriend. He's tall, dark and sexy as hell. He has pushed his love life to the side in order to concentrate on raising his two nieces since his sister's death. Val has given up a great deal in her life to raise her siblings since their parents deaths. ...more

OH WOW! I feel like I am in Cloud 9 right now! Layla, you once again captivated my heart with an incredible love story. It's only the 2nd month of the year but I'm definitely sure that this book will be on my top favorite list of 2019 or even has the potential to be on my lifetime list. I JUST CAN'T STOP SMILING!!! I feel like I want to read it over and over, and over again, and relive the moments when I started to fall madly in love with Carter. Not only how he loved and treated Val but also ho ...more

When Val meets Carter the connection is immediate. But they are both wary from bad luck dating in the past. Both are afraid to give their heart away too soon. Both characters are very endearing and have you rooting for a HEA from the beginning.

Val is the gorgeous owner and CEO of a beauty company. She is the oldest sister of the Connor clan. She is very warm, loving and gentle but she is strong. She has sacrificed a lot in life to raise her younger siblings after their parents died. Val is a rom

Only With You is that book, that makes your heart feel all warm and fuzzy. I started off reading Hagen's Bennett Series, and have been hooked since then. I absolutely adore how this author makes such strong family connections in the Bennett and Connor Series. Both so family oriented, and light hearted, it is so easy to be consumed with each and every book.

Only With You is a dual pov that can be read as a standalone, but is also interconnected. Even though this is a light book, don't let it fool

Oh my gosh!! I absolutely love Carter!! First let me say that Layla Hagen writes in such a descriptive way that you can actually visualize the people and places in your head. Not only that but she writes her characters in such a way that you feel like you know them intimately and that you are going through their trials right along with them.
This is the fourth book in the Connor Family series. This book focuses on Valentina. She is the oldest girl and twin to Landon (from Book 1). She is an indep

I have been waiting to read Val's love adventure. She is the oldest (along with her brother Landon) in a large family who lost their parents in a car accident when she was only 18. She and her brother left their college careers to raise their younger siblings and worked in their father's pub to support them. Val had always dabbled in fragrances and after many years (after her younger siblings were on their own) was able to establish a high-end fragrance company.

She meets a handsome stranger one

I have read all of Ms. Hagan's books in the Bennett and Connor families. She writes romance stories with strong family ties. I LOVE the way she pulls all family members in and makes them add to the current story. This is the story of Valentina Connor. I have loved her from back in the Bennett family days. I am happy to see her find her happily ever after!

I just LOVED this story! Carter and Val were a perfect match for each other! His strength and devotion to his family was equal to hers, though

Well, I am becoming rather addicted to the Connor family. This fourth installment of the standalones is compelling and captivating.

Val, the oldest of the Connor siblings has been unlucky in love. This has made her weary of giving her heart easily.

Carter is a successful lawyer who dedicates all his apare time to his two orphan nieces. He works hard, plays hard and loves with all of his heart.

On their first chance encounter. Carter and Val oggle each other discreetly and an incident forces them

Add in the fact that he is a successful attorney who is now raising his two nieces and rocking it and he is the perfect match for Valentina Connor. Valentina is one special lady!

I adore Layla Hagen's writing. I think I have read every book she has written and they get better each time- which is a feat in itself.

Val is the matriarch of this Connor Clan and so deserving of a happily ever after. Carter Sloane was absolutely perfect for Val. They have such similar backgrounds and experiences in life that have taught them the important things in life and family comes first.

As they explore their new found friendship, Val and Carter are sweet and flirtatious. I wanted to push

I have enjoyed the previous Connor books and I couldn’t wait to read Val’s story. As one of the oldest-with her twin Landon-she was responsible for raising her four younger siblings. To me, Val had a tough exterior. Being a “mom” to her siblings can definitely bring that out and I wasn’t expecting a softer side. Boy was I wrong. In Only With You, I was able to see the other side of Valentina Connor-the warmer side. It was a perfect balance between a strong independent woman/business-owner and “m ...more

Only with You is Book 4 of the Connor Family series. This is the story of 2 people meeting who both became unlikely guardians at different stages in their lives, but bonded because of it.
There is NO Cliffhanger. It can be read as a standalone, but is best read as part of the series. All of Ms. Hagen's books are filled with love and romance; there is no drama, cheating or heartbreak. I found this book to be a sweet, calming, steady read; yet there was definitely heat that kept things steaming!

Layla Hagen does it again with the fourth book in the Connor Family Series, “Only For You”. Each time I read a new book from Layla Hagen I wonder how it can be as good as any of her previous books. Amazingly enough it always is. I adore her books. This book is about Valentina “Val” Connor the oldest of the Connor siblings and Carter Sloane. Carter is the sexy attorney and Val is the owner of her own fragrance company. From the beginning of this series I fell in love with Val and how she takes ca ...more

Can I have a Carter too?!

When Carter’s law firm moves into an office in the same neighbourhood as Valentina’s fragrance company, their meeting is pleasant, welcome and not without chemistry. That chemistry definitely heats up and their flirting is on a whole other level. Carter is one very sexy, very sweet, very dirty talking man who holds nothing back when he knows what he wants. He’s a guy that likes to be in control, but when it comes to being the guardian for his two nieces, that’s not alwa

I received an ARC for an honest opinion. Valentina Connor is the heart of the Conner family and you would think that she would not want to raise another family since she and her twin brother helped raise her brothers and sisters after losing their parents. However, Val’s heart is open and giving. Enter Carter Sloan. Carter is raising his nieces and struggling with relationships in this environment. The chemistry jumps off the pages. This relationship builds and they share themselves in ways neit ...more

Another great story in the Connor series! Val is one of the oldest and helped raise all of the Connors along side her twin brother, Landon. Val is very headstrong and independent. She owns her own fragrance company and usually is the one hosting the Friday night family dinners. Carter is adorable even though he is a shark lawyer. He is raising his two nieces after his sister and brother-in-law died. I wanted a little more interaction with April and Peyton though (the nieces). I felt like we coul ...more

For three books I've been wondering who would capture Valentina's heart. She and Landon grew up in the wake of their parents' untimely deaths and raised the rest of the Connor clan. She's watched as her siblings found love, while never finding her man.

Until now.

Carter too has seen life. He's raising his nieces while growing his business. An accident of fate brings them together.

I love Hagen's books, I've read almost all of them. This is one of the best. It's not as dramatic as some of the plots

Just when I thought Ms Hagen's stories couldn't get any better, she comes along with Valentina and Carter's story. Val started and runs her own successful fragrance company. She's not sure if she'll ever find the one love, as she hasn't had much success in the past with dating. Carter is equally successful with his law firm, but not always as much with his two young nieces living with him since his sister's death. This one is sweet and hot. Both nieces love Val and that she lovingly spends time ...more

There’s instant physical attraction but both have been unlucky at love in the past so they keep their hearts guarded.

I think this is my favorite Connor family book to date ( but I think I say that about every book 😘). Val has been the family matriarch for a very long time, and she deserves happiness too, which we finally get to see.

Carter is this magnanimous man, with intelligence, sexiness, and a wonderful personality. He's raising his nieces and running a law firm full time, while trying to maintain symbolism in his life. Along comes Val and everything becomes eskew. How do you run a business, work lawyer h

Yet again, Layla Hagen has delivered a great story about a couple with great chemistry and are very focused on their respective families. I so enjoy Layla’s books for so many reasons. Love her writing style, her focus on family values and the simplicity of capturing true love.
Carter is the perfect man any woman would love to have on their side. He is protective, romantic, sexy, and will do anything and everything for family. Perfect match since Val is equally terrific!

Layla Hagen does a beautiful job of painting the picture for my imagination. Her characters, the settings, the emotion and the love are written so well and vividly that my heart embraces it all. I can't help myself when I read one of Layla Hagen stories, I am hooked, emotionally invested, I am all in.

Val has always been the one that is there for everyone. She put her own life and dreams on hold when she was younger, so that she could help raise her younger siblings. Even though everyone is grown

This is my favorite Connors book to date. Val is a strong woman is used to nurturing others and giving her heart easily, Carter is the same. It’s this vulnerability in Carter that makes him so attractive. Layla could not have written a sexier male character than Carter. In her time of need, despite her strength, Carter does become her knight in shining armor and Val accepts that with grace. She also deals with the inevitable problem they encounter as a couple with the same grace and has an epiph ...more

I’ve been waiting a long time for Val to finally meet her match. Carter, I believe, is the perfectly imperfect match for Val. Their chemistry is beyond comprehension. I loved it. It’s like their relationship is so natural and at the right time the universe put them together and they just can’t help it but be with each other.
I’ve been doing reviews for Ms. Layla’s ARCs and honestly? I’ll always say every book is my favorite. Each story is unique on its own. Each story would touch your heart in a

Another wonderful installment of the Conner family, cousins of the San Francisco Bennett family. This time the oldest sister Val, having just broken up with a cheater, is wary of her instant attraction to Carter. Carter meanwhile, being single parent to his two nieces, is also cautious. Not every woman is interested in a package deal.

Only For You was a fantastic story GAH. Val is getting her morning coffee when she sees this gorgeous guy come in and stand by her in line. They strike up a conversation and it’s pretty instant the feelings they have for each other.

As we know Valentina had to help her twin brother in raising her siblings when her parents were killed. She now owns her own perfume lab.
Carter is a lawyer whose sister and her husband died so he is raising her two daughters.

Welcome! My name is Layla Hagen and I am a Contemporary Romance author.

I fell in love with books when I was nine years old, and my love affair with stories continues even now, many years later.

I write romantic stories and can’t wait to share them with the world.

And I drink coffee. Lots of it, in case the photo didn’t make it obvious enough ;)
