Everyone associates the name Ryker Winchester with money, power plays, negotiations…it's what I'm good at. In the boardroom, I get exactly what I want. In the bedroom, there's no difference.

I was wholly unprepared for Heather.

She’s a feisty single mom, challenging me in ways no woman ever has. I can’t get enough of her. The way she gives in to me is intoxicating, but I nee

Very Irresistible Bachelors #2
Layla Hagen
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I cannot explain in words how much Layla’s stories resonates with me. I don’t know the reason but her characters break into my heart and stay there. This new series is as amazing as the Bennett & Connor families. Meeting the New York bachelors has been so much fun, and already I can’t wait for book 3. Hunter and now, Ryker are my irresistible men of 2020. In the light of our crazy world right now, it’s been a pleasant break in real

Sweet, sexy, swoony and drama-free romance.


This is the second book in Layla Hagen’s Very Irresistible Bachelors series, following on from You're The One, and continues the stories of the Winchester family.

Ryker Winchester is one of four incredibly close siblings (their cousin, Hunter, was the hero of book #1). He is a successful and wealthy businessman who also performs as a singer in a bar, and it’s while playing one night that he meets Heather, a single mother who is about to bring hi

Just One Kiss is the second book in the Very Irresistible Bachelors series by Layla Hagen. The main characters are Ryker and Heather.

Lately, I have been stuck in a book funk and I cannot enjoy most of the books I read. This one was the exception though. I had plenty of fun reading it. Layla Hagen is one of the few authors whose books are guaranteed to be good. I needed a story where the main characters are dedicated to each other and there is no drama for the shake of drama. Heather's daughter

Ryker Winchester (LOOOVE the last name!) is a playboy. A successful Wall Street venture capitalist. A family man who loves his siblings. He is not a man who craves commitment and a relationship, until a sweetheart stumbles into his life and he's smitten. Can he show Heather and her adorable little girl how good the 3 of them could be if Heather allowed him in?



I adored this very sweet, very sexy story. Ryker and Heather are a lethal combination of sweet, steamy and adorable, especially be

Move over humor because the heart is cutting in. For every teardrop that threatens to fall there is a smile waiting to break though. Hagen keeps getting better with each story she writes. Heather is a dreamer with everything to lose. Ryder is a cynic with everything to gain. Just One Kiss strums a beautiful melody in a less than perfect chord. Out of tune, becomes unforgettable when emotions are allowed to show the way.

I am always excited to read Layla’s latest instalment of the families she writes about as you are guaranteed a fun and sexy read. This is Ryker Winchester’s story from the Very Irresistible Bachelors series, and it did not disappoint.

Ryker is a very successful Wall Street Businessman by day and to escape the stress of the day he plays guitar at his local bar at night. This is where he meets the feisty and struggling single mother Heather who is ceremoniously dumped by her boyf

Ok….So I think Ryker Winchester is my favorite of this family so far. I absolutely LOVED him!!!

I don’t know what it is, but when I pick up a Layla Hagen book, I just know it is the escape from reality I need. Her books are an easy, low drama read, that you just get sucked into. They always make me relax and I end her books with a HUGE smile on my face.

Just One Kiss was no exception to this. This is the second book in this series by Layla Hag

Ryker is very successful in his demanding career with investments, but his softer side emerges when he plays the guitar. During one of his performances Ryker intervened in an altercation between Heather and her soon to be ex-boyfriend when he tells her the plans they made to move in together are no longer happening and she is left renting a home that will cause a financial strain on her and her daughter.

Heather is still feeling the betrayal of finding out that her ex isn’t the man she thought he

5 star review of Just One Kiss (Very Irresistible Bachelors #2) Layla Hagen 
 
Layla Hagen is a relatively new author to me and why that is I have absolutely no idea. This is the second book in her latest series and can be read as a stand alone although when time permits I will be looking at reading book one in the series.

The writing was strong and the characters were easy to relate to and I found myself totally invested in the story that Ms. Hagen wove from the first to the last chapter.

For this being my first time reading a Layla Hagen book, it was quite enjoyable. This is in fact the second book in her recent series, but can be read as a standalone.

Just when Heather thinks she’s about to enter a new chapter in her life, it all comes crashing down. She’s been hurt before and now with this added hurt it’s only added in her not being able to trust easily. Heather’s main priority is to care for her daughter, Avery and making sure she’s protected. She never expected the likes of R

Overall Grade: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

There is something special about Layla Hagen’s brand of romance. You can depend upon it to warm your soul. Since Hagen has moved into the world of the Winchester family, she shows what she does best: crafting stories with heroes and heroines that we can trust to get us to that happy ending with a little bit of strife, but a whole lot of loving. Hagen’s newest book, Just One Kiss, gifts us with all of that and more.

Using the single mother trope for this book, Hagen takes o

I haven't read a lot of this authors books, but I know that everyone I have read or listened to I really enjoyed.
Ryker and Heather were just too cute together. After Ryker sort of saved Heather from her douchebag ex, he kind of wanted to know who she was or just find out if she was okay.
Heather wanted to check up on the hot guy who saved her from her ex and contacted the bar she was at. When they met they couldn't deny that they had something between them. From there the story was so g

Just One Kiss is book 2 in the Very Irresistible Bachelors Series but it can certainly be read as a stand-alone but I’m sure after picking this entertaining romance up you will want to read the previous book.
Ryker Winchester is a man used to getting his own way whether that be in business or his personal life, Heather is the woman about to show him that there’s more to life than power and authority, she’s a single mum with an adorable little girl who steals Ryker’s heart, who would have thought

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Ryker is a bit of a playboy, or at least that's the impression I formed of him in the early chapters of the book. Heather is a single-mum trying to make the world work for her and her daughter Avery.

This is their story. It's a class Hagen story... two basically good people, a sweet plot line, with some tension through in, and a Happy Ever After. The main two characters are surrounded by a large loving family, which is also a feature of Hagen's b

Just One kiss is the second book in the Irresistible Bachelors series and is a sweet and light hearted read with a few steamy scenes. Ryker was a bachelor before meeting Heather, but as soon as he sees her, he cannot explain or deny the strong feelings he feels for her. Heather is a single mother who has just gotten out of a two year relationship and has decided for the best for her daughter, it’s just going to be just them for a while. That is until she meets Ryker. Ryker and Heather shar

Although this is the second book in the series it can be read as a standalone. This is Heather and Ryker's story, it was fun and romantic. When Ryker sees Heather he is drawn to her and goes all out to get to know her. Heather is a single mum to an adorable little girl, she's been hurt in the past and is wary of getting involved with anyone. Ryker is a successful businessman, he's confident but not arrogant which makes him very likeable. When he see's her he becomes determined to get to know her ...more

Just when I think Layla Hagen can’t come up with a sweeter romance she hits me right in the feels with her latest novel, Just One Kiss. Ultra sweet, swoony af, and with a hero totally worth melting for, this is the kind of feel-good romance I needed right now. Seriously! And to top it off this story has a hero that will steal your heart, keep you blushing and leave you with a smile. GET THIS! 5 stars.

What a swoony read! A perfect match! Ryker is to die for with his flirtatious and charming ways. He's everything you want in a man and more. Heather is down on her luck and disappointed with the way things gave turned out for her. She's a strong single mom who'd do anything for her daughter. Little did she know that Ryker would come into her life and change everything, mind, body, and soul. This story is something you definitely want to read. A feel good read and great escape from everything! ...more

Such a fun sweet romance. When Ryker and Heather first meet and he helps her out with a issue the chemistry is almost instant which is surprising for him. Ryker is extremely persistent in his quest for Heathers heart but she is the epitome of cautious, trying to protect herself daughter from another bad call. This story was so light hearted and adorable that it was refreshing.

I can’t honestly say Layal Hagen is one of my top 5 favorite contemporary romance authors. But I can say I like her enough to spend the money to download her books when they are released. Considering the number of authors available for free on Kindle Unlimited I guess the fact that I’m willing to spend money on her says something about my opinion of her as a story teller.
Our heroine or female lead character or protagonist in this story is Heather Prescott a 28-year-old single mom of 7-year-old A

I love Layla’s other books so much, but this one was so idk cringe.

Least favorite book so far. Heather seemed to jump from one relationship to the next without thought of how her kid would feel. She also seemed too trusting and loose. How can you just start dating someone when you broke up with someone the day before? A person you were going to move in with like it doesn’t seem realistic. Usually when you move in with someone it because you have strong emotions for them, but like she didn’t eve

Ryker went from flirt to swoony the moment he met Heather and I adored him all the more for it. As soon as he realized what he wanted he went all out and wasn't going to let anything stand in his way.

Heather had all the reasons in the world to guard her heart and Avery's but even the most guarded wouldn't have been able to resist Ryker's next level swoon factor. His interactions with Avery melted my heart every time and made me love him even more.

As always with Layla Hagan's books there's no ov

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 ;)
