Your Inescapable Love

Book 4: The Bennett Family Series

Max and Emilia's Story

Max Bennett is a successful man. His analytical mind has taken his family’s company to the next level. Outside the office, Max transforms from the serious business man into someone who is carefree and fun. Max is happy with his life and doesn’t intend to change it, even though his mother keeps asking for more grandchildren. Max loves being an uncle, and plans to spoil his nieces rotten.

But when a chance encounter reunites him with Emilia, his childhood best friend, he starts questioning everything. The girl he last saw years ago has grown into a sensual woman with a smile he can’t get out of his mind.

Emilia Campbell has a lot on her plate, taking care of her sick grandmother. Still, she faces everything with a positive attitude. When the childhood friend she hero-worshipped steps into her physical therapy clinic, she is over the moon. Max is every bit the troublemaker she remembers, only now he has a body to drool over and a smile to melt her panties. Not that she intends to do the former, or let the latter happen.

They are both determined not to cross the boundaries of friendship…at first. But as they spend more time together, they form an undeniable bond and their flirty banter spirals out of control.

Max knows Emilia is off-limits, but that only makes her all the more tempting. Besides, Max was never one to back away from a challenge.

When their chemistry becomes too much to resist and they inevitably give in to temptation, will they risk losing their friendship or will Max and Emilia find true love?

Daffodil's Books

“I honestly feel like each Bennett Family book has been better than the last (not that the last wasn't also amazing) and I genuinely cannot wait for my socks to continue to be knocked off for five more books!”

Aisha Reads Books

“It never fails that when I pick up a Layla Hagen novel I walk away impressed and with a huge smile on my face. She sucks me into her stories and characters to the point that I don't want the story to end.”

Book Bitches

“While their journey to HEA is far from smooth, the ride is deliciously sexy and sensual and a lot of fun. The banter and reminiscing from the couple is highly humorous and the Bennet family is every entertaining. I laughed and smiled reading this book, more than I have in anything I've read lately.”
