Man, do I ever love He-Is-Grumpy-She-Is-Sunshine! And This book rocks it!

There were some really amazing parts of this book. Sheesh...the chemistry was panty-melting goodness! These two characters have sizzle from the instant they lay eyes in each other and they are HOT. I truly loved that Tess was a smart, hard working, driven, entrepreneur. She is passionate abut her business (and about life in general). I also loved how unapologetically Tess longs for children and a family.

When an "oopsie" happens in the bathroom right before the possible investor meeting happens, Tess thinks that is the worse thing of her morning. However when the man from the bathroom just happens to be the head of the investing team, she feels that the funding is doomed. But Liam cannot keep his heart out of the meeting and not only does his company invest in SoHo Lingerie but the sparks between Liam and Tess are not only one-sided. Can you mix work and pleasure and still achieve your goals? Or ...more

I can always count on this author for playful and hot romance. It's the best label for this story that not only creates two lively characters, but inmerses them in a business relationship full of banter, red-hot chemistry, and real-life quality.

Right from the start, Tess and Liam meet on exciting and challenging terms. From a hilarious and embarrassing moment of chance, they go to business negotiations that pit them against each other's wits, ardent attraction, and very real feelings.

I received an ARC of My One and Only by Layla Hagen as a member of her review team for an honest review. I can honestly say that I am not sure how Layla Hagen does it, but I absolutely loved My One and Only! It is the fifth book in the Very Irresistible Bachelor series. I loved every page of and could not put it down. Layla Hagen definitely did not disappoint with My One and Only and has once again delivered an incredible story filled with everything that I love in sizzling romance stories. Who ...more

My One and Only by Layla Hagen was one of the sweetest, most low-angst, most romantic book I've ever read.

After an embarrassing meet-cute between investor, Liam and an applicant, Tess, sparks FLY. For Liam, his robotic reaction to situations gets tossed into the air as the sexy, yet awkward Tess weasels her way into his heart and mind. They had chemistry out the ying yang and their sexy times were HOT. Liam was amazing. He was allll about Tess. Their honesty was a breath of fresh air. I liked ho

5 star review of My One and Only (Very Irresistible Bachelors #5) Layla Hagen 

In my opinion this series has gotten better and better with every book. My One and Only is Tess and Liam’s story was a fantastic addition to a series I have come to love. Ms.Hagen’s writing is strong, with characters that are easy to relate to and I found myself totally invested in the story that she wove from the first to the last chapter. From the first moment we met Tess I knew that she was a special woman and the m

I LOVE 💗THIS BOOK 📚 not only is it 🔥 HOT and steamy♨️ like the others, Tess and Liam show that you can still be independent and also depend on others and you won't lose your independenceby doing so. I also love the fact that Layla the author keeps us informed about the characters in other books, in my eyes I'm not just reading a book I'm reading about an entire family with ups and downs just like my own. And I can't wait to read Isabells story I hope she's next!!!

I knew it would take one heck of a man to grab ahold of Tess's attention and hold it, Liam is THAT man and more. The chemistry was off the charts form the moment they met and it only kept growing till it exploded into something undeniable.
Throughout the ups and downs that come with a new relationship, there is an outside source that wants to tear them apart but soon they find out that they're meant for one another and nothing can stop them once they finally get on the same page.

Layla Hagen has done it again. She gave us a swoony and sexy romance story that isn’t filled with a lot of angst or drama.

I loved how this couple meet for the first time. An accidental meeting with a little indecent exposure ;)

This is the fifth book in this series and I have loved them all from the first one to the last one. Layla has an amazing talent for writing series about families who you just want to be a part of. This book/series is no exception

This series is called the “Very Irresistible Bachelors” for a reason and Book 5, My One and Only, features a new swoony Hero for us to love, Liam Harrington. This man knows what he wants and makes the object of his affection, Tess Winchester, weak at the knees just from his smoldering stare.

Their meet cute is epic as he accidently saw her undressing and was immediately smitten. He was ever the gentleman, but was totally captivated and needed to get to know the woman with the pink in her cheeks,

My One and Only is the 5th installment of the Very Irresistible Bachelors series and is Tess’s story. I have loved Tess in the previous books. She is the momma of the group always taking special care of her family but never receiving special care for herself outside of her family to fill her back up. She is a special woman and all along you knew that her special someone was going to have to be something special to grab her attention and hold on. Liam was just that guy. I wasn’t sure if he would ...more

THIS BOOK IS A MUST READ! If you are looking for your next book boyfriend, then Liam Harrington is your man! I fell in love with this book. Liam is a ridged, all rules no play investor who runs Harrington & Co. with David, Becca and a silent partner. David and Becca are not only his partners, but they are best friends. Tess Winchester is this kick ass business woman with a fierce and loyal love for her family. Tess and Skye apply to be the newest mentee for Harrington & Co. Investment firm, to r ...more

I received an ARC of My One and Only from Layla Hagen. I've read many of her books about the enchanting Winchester family. Tess is a part of that clan and she uses years of working the family's closeness to help achieve her goals. She's always had their backing and she thrives on their love.
Then she falls for Liam who doesn't have close family except for his grandmother. His two business partners fill in for family by providing him the kind of support that good parents and siblings typically do.

Another Winchester finds her HEA and this time it is Tess. Layla Hagen sure knows how to write the best love stories with amazing characters who are so easy to fall in love with as a reader.
Tess is amazing! I just love her! She is such a smart, savvy business woman while at the same time has quite a sweet, and playful side. She has such a big heart when it comes to her family and helping others.
And Liam, I mean talk about dreamy. Where can I find my very own Liam? As the song goes, What a man,

I have loved reading all of the Winchester clan falling in love and knew that Tess would someday find her HEA. Tess is the only sibling that wants to be in love and was the last to find it.
She and her sister have been in need of an investor for quite some time and finally got their opportunity with a great company, Harrington & Co.

Finally, we meet a man who is perfect for Tess Winchester. We've met Tess through the books about her siblings and now its her turn to fall in love. The way that she meets her future love is hilarious and a great opening to what is a lovely book. In fact, I think this is my favorite of the entire series.

Why my favourite?

Liam is awesome. Sweet and sexy. He's a mature man who knows what and who he wants.

My One and Only, by Layla Hagen is a beautifully written heartwarming story that warmed my reading soul. With its equal blend of romance, humour, low angst, and kindle melting steam I couldn't help but devour it in one sitting.
Liam and Tess's meet-cute is humorous and embarrassing, and yet it sparks an insta-lust and some serious sizzling chemistry.
Tessa has had no luck in the dating world and yet she has always been the one to care for everyone's happiness, especially her family members. Enter

I was so excited to read Tess Story as I have loved her appearances in the previous Very Irresistible Bachelor books where being the eldest, she is the carer of the family of siblings and always puts them first before herself. At 35 years old she is unattached as she has not had much success in the dating field and puts long hours into her and Skye’s successful Lingerie business.

When an opportunity arises for them to expand the business through some investors her luck changes
