Review: Your Alluring Love



Layla Hagen’s Your Alluring Love is one of my favorite friends to lovers romances EVER!!! And that is saying a lot because over the course of the past twenty years I have read MANY!!!

I adored the way that the author was able to convey some serious heat between Alice and her brother’s best friend Nate.  The ferocious attraction and sizzling fires that blazed between these two characters was so obvious and I was immediately drawn in! The witty banter and clever dialogue captured my attention and kept me engrossed throughout the duration of the novel.  The added aspect of a relationship that was “forbidden” yet clearly inevitable due to Nate and Alice’s combustive chemistry greatly appealed to me.

Honestly,  I fell in love with Alice’s vitality, strength, ambition and stubborn nature.   The fact that she had craved Nate from afar for so long warmed me to the core.  And Nate…this extremely successful man is so caring, loyal, and possessive of the woman that he considers his regardless of the bounds of his friendship with Alice’s brother! One of the greatest strengths of this book is the tension that slowly builds as Alice and Nate fight the attraction that percolates between them before it comes to complete boil in the most satisfying of ways, especially when Nate starts using that skilled, dirty-talking tongue of his!

Your Alluring Love is part of a series and this was my first foray into the Bennett universe.  In spite of the fact that I am new to this series I felt that it can be read as a complete standalone.  I did not feel lost while I was reading or like I could not keep up with the many wonderful characters from previous books that make appearances.

Two emphatic thumbs up from me!

So READ it!!!

That is this Naughty Girl’s final word.

Overall: 4.5 /5  Alluring, magnificent stars for overall content and searing heat!



*A sizzling romance from a USA Today Bestselling Author*

Alice Bennett has been holding a torch for her older brother’s best friend, Nate, for more than a decade. He’s a hotshot TV producer who travels the world, never staying in San Francisco for too long. But now he’s in town and just as tempting as ever… with a bossy streak that makes her weak in the knees and a smile that can melt ice—or at the very least, her defenses.

As a successful restaurant owner, Alice is happy with her life. She loves her business and her family, yet after watching her siblings find their happy ever after, she can’t help feeling lonely sometimes—but that’s only for her to know.

Nate has always had a soft spot for Alice. Despite considering the Bennetts his family, he never could look at her as just his friend’s little sister. She’s a spitfire, and Nate just can’t stay away. He loves making her laugh… and blush.

Their attraction is irresistible, and between stolen kisses and wicked-hot nights, they form a deep bond that has them both yearning for more.

But when the chance of a lifetime comes knocking at his door, will Nate chase success even if it means losing Alice, or will he choose her?

Alluring Love Teaser


“Let me do the dirty work from time to time. You’re mine, Alice. That means I’ll protect you from anyone, even if you don’t want me to. I’ll protect you especially when you don’t want me to because it’s when you need it most.” Before I can reply, he steps right in front of me. “You understand? You are mine.”

I shake my head. “You’re stubborn and possessive.”

“Sounds like I’m a catch.”

“I didn’t mean those as compliments,” I inform him, crossing my arms over my chest.

“That’s how they sounded to me.”

“How do you figure?”

“You can easily rephrase that to determined and protective. Both positive traits.”

Despite my annoyance, my lips twitch with a hint of a smile.

“I won’t apologize for wanting to protect you.”

“I wasn’t really expecting you to,” I reply, disarmed by his passion and honesty. “But I’m warning you, I’m still mad at you.”

“I’m counting on it, darling. In fact, hold on to the anger until we get home. Unless you want to leave now?”

“No, the event isn’t over.” I’m a little suspicious of his sudden good mood. “Why do you want me to hold on to the anger?”

“Because there’s a kind of sex I’m dying to try with you.”

“What kind is that?”

He wiggles his eyebrows, leaning in. “Make-up sex.”
