TITLE - Your Fierce Love
AUTHOR - Layla Hagen
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.
“Friends to lovers, 5 stars”
Clara was part of the system growing up. Her parents died when she was young causing her to have attachment issues. When she lets you in, she lets you in. Clara let the Bennett family in and it was one of the best things she’s ever done. Until she thinks about Blake. She’s always had feelings towards him, but not enough to risk losing the family she feels like is her own. But what happens if Blake wants her…
Blake has always noticed Clara, just not enough to do anything about it until she moves in next door. He finds himself trying to insert himself into her life. Be it helping her move or bringing her coffee. When the line is finally crossed there is no going back, they sealed their fate. They are a match made in heaven, until they hit a road bump. What happens when one doesn’t take it well? Will redemption happen?
I loved how flawlessly Blake and Clara shifted from friends to lovers. It was an easy transition not only for them but for Blake’s family. It was a sweet easy read. I would totally recommend it if you don’t have a lot of time to read but need to read. It felt like it went by fast without rushing. Defiantly one-click.
