Book 1: The Bennett Family Series

Sebastian and Ava's Story

Sebastian Bennett is a determined man. It’s the secret behind the business empire he built from scratch. Under his rule, Bennett Enterprises dominates the jewelry industry. Despite being ruthless in his work, family comes first for him, and he’d do anything for his parents and eight siblings—even if they drive him crazy sometimes. . . like when they keep nagging him to get married already.

Sebastian doesn’t believe in love, until he brings in external marketing consultant Ava to oversee the next collection launch. She’s beautiful, funny, and just as stubborn as he is. Not only is he obsessed with her delicious curves, but he also finds himself willing to do anything to make her smile.

He’s determined to have Ava, even if she’s completely off limits.

Ava Lindt has one job to do at Bennett Enterprises: make the next collection launch unforgettable. Daydreaming about the hot CEO is definitely not on her to-do list. Neither is doing said CEO. The consultancy she works for has a strict policy—no fraternizing with clients. She won’t risk her job. Besides, Ava knows better than to trust men with her heart.

But their sizzling chemistry spirals into a deep connection that takes both of them by surprise. Sebastian blows through her defenses one sweet kiss and sinful touch at a time. When Ava’s time as a consultant in his company comes to an end, will Sebastian fight for the woman he loves or will he end up losing her?

“Sexy and romantic! Sebastian will charm his way into your heart and leave you begging to be a Bennett! Hagen's writing is full of steamy romance that you won't be able to put down.”

– Geneva Lee, NYT and Internationally bestselling author of Royal Passion (The Royals)

“This book was on fire. I read the whole thing in one sitting All the feels were out of me on this one. The spark that explored from these characters was…… hot damn magic!!!”

– Debbie D, Blogger

“Layla did it again! She wrote and amazing story that you can´t put down for one second, I had to read it in one sitting I just couldn´t stop.”

– Planeta Flor Blog

“In this first installment of the Bennett Family series, Hagen employs an easy, conspiratorial writing style, alternating perspectives between the two leads. The CEO–employee power dynamic is hot, and though Ava is impressed by Sebastian's power and masculinity, she is still every bit his equal. In terms of supporting cast, siblings Logan (chief operating officer and bad cop to Sebastian's good cop) and Pippa (the company's creative director) never threaten to steal center stage but are memorable enough that readers will look forward to seeing them again in future books…A strong start to the series, with enough sizzle to stand alone and plenty of likable characters.”
