Meet the Author:
Welcome! My name is Layla Hagen and I am a USA Today bestselling author of contemporary romance.
I fell in love with books when I was nine years old, and my love affair with stories continues even now, many years later.
I write romantic stories and can’t wait to share them with the world.
And I drink coffee. Lots of it, in case the photo didn’t make it obvious enough 😉

The Bennett Family Series
Your Fierce Love
(The Bennett Family, #7)
Publication Date: July 29, 2017
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Clara Abernathy adores the Bennett family. After growing up in group homes, she yearns for the warmth and love of a family, and the Bennetts treat her like one of their own. So when Clara needs a temporary place to live, Blake Bennett suggests she move next door to him.
The offer is tempting. The problem? So is Blake himself. Handsome, funny, and alpha, he’s six feet two of eye candy… and his outlook on life is completely different from hers. But Clara finds it difficult enough to resist his charms at family events. How is she supposed to resist him when he’s just one wall away, and hell-bent on having her?
Blake Bennett knows family friends are off-limits for good reasons, and Clara is more off-limits than anyone else. But Blake went through life and made his fortune in the gastronomy industry by bending rules rather than following them. Clara’s sweetness and sass fill a hole in him he wasn’t even aware of. Soon he finds himself gravitating around her. He wants to have her and he will, rules be damned.
YOUR FIERCE LOVE is the seventh book in Layla Hagen’s Bennett Family series, but all books stand alone.
Holy Smokes y’all.
I really enjoyed this steamy little read. Blake and Clara definitely brought the heat and sweet in the seventh installment of The Bennett Family series. Can you say wall sex? Yep, I’m down with that any and everywhere!
Here’s the breakdown:
Clara has been a family friend and co-worker of the Bennetts for many years. She’s considered part of the family and is super close to many of the siblings. However, one Bennett in particular thinks of her as more than friends and plans to do whatever it takes to make her his.
What I loved:
Blake is sinfully sexy! He’s giving, sweet, and thoughtful. The relationship development between him and Clara is super cute because of his awesomeness. I’m a sucker for a man who goes after what he wants and makes his woman his priority.
Clara is a great heroine. She’s hard-working, loyal, and sweet. He backstory is heartbreaking, but makes her character even more likable. I love that she’s adamant about making it on her own and not using her connection to a wealthy family to enhance her position in life.
The family ties and match making shenanigans are always a bonus with the Bennett!
Overall, this is another great addition to the series. I enjoyed the sweet and sexy story. I’d recommend this book to romance lovers who enjoy series that feature family ties, wealthy male leads, and the friends to lovers trope.
