About ONLY WITH YOU by Layla Hagen
Carter Sloane is famous for one thing: winning cases. He's sharp, astute, and always gets his way. In his private life, he's constantly fumbling his way around when it comes to raising his two nieces.
When he moves into a new office, he just can't take his eyes off the fiercely independent woman across the street. He'd love to touch and kiss that irresistible body.
Valentina "Val" Connor is proud of her booming fragrance company. If only she were half as successful in her love life… Between trusting the wrong men and sheer bad luck, Val is convinced she'll never find the one.
However, the sexy lawyer in the neighborhood with his sophisticated charm and sex-appeal is hell bent on proving to her that she's wrong. Val's senses warn her to stay away from men like him-even if her body is begging her to cave.
But when she finds out about Carter's nieces, she steps in to help, doting on them with love and care. She can't believe that the same man who is usually in control is completely in over his head with the girls.
But as Val and Carter grow closer, one thing is clear to him: He'd move mountains to make her happy, but with Val's career soaring, how can he ask her to commit to the chaos of his life?
Add ONLY WITH YOU on Goodreads:
Only with you is book 4 in the Connor Family Series and I have not previously read books 1-3 in the series, luckily it didn’t matter and I found myself falling more and more in love with these 2 characters.
Val and Carter live very busy lives, both dedicated to their jobs. When Carter takes on custody of his nieces his life is full but still feels those empty moments; wanting to find someone to share the highs and lows with. When you continuously have bad luck in the dating department you start to doubt everything, when Val meets Carter its almost too good to be true; Falling in love was easy for these 2.
This is the first time I have read a Layla Hagen novel and I can tell you right now that she has caught me, hook line and sinker. I got to about 50% of this book and smiled to myself thinking this is just one of those amazing happy books that makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
I without a doubt will be going back and reading books 1-3 and hope that there is more in store for this series.
Writing Style: 5/5
“Love in a coffee shop, 5 stars”
Val loves love and has always tried to find her one. But in all honesty its kind of exhausting when you keep getting it wrong. Then she meets Carter in a coffee shop. He gives her all the flirty banter she can handle, and she can’t help but want a little more from him. Will she push too much?
Carter has his hands full between work and taking care of his nieces but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t feel the loneliness set in at night. When he meets Val something about her calls to him. Will he be able to convince her to take a chance on him? Will his life style be too much for her?
I absolutely loved Val and Carter. Once they were together, they were together. The only way they had problems was due to lack of communication. I loved what both of their families added to the story. It was just a sweet romance and honestly, they met in a coffee shop. That would be the perfect meet-cute for me if I wasn’t already madly in love with my husband. Lol
I cannot wait to see who Hagen writes next in the Connor family.
