Blog Tour: YOUR CAPTIVATING LOVE by Layla Hagen



Logan Bennett knows his priorities. He is loyal to his family and his company. He has no time for love, and no desire for it. Not after a disastrous engagement left him brokenhearted. When Nadine enters his life, she turns everything upside down.

She’s sexy, funny, and utterly captivating. She’s also more stubborn than anyone he’s met…including himself.

Nadine Hawthorne is finally pursuing her dream: opening her own clothing shop. After working so hard to get here, she needs to concentrate on her new business, and can’t afford distractions. Not even if they come in the form of Logan Bennett. He’s handsome, charming, and doesn’t take no for an answer. After bitter disappointments, Nadine doesn’t believe in love. But being around Logan is addicting. It doesn’t help that Logan’s family is scheming to bring them together at every turn.

Their attraction is sizzling, their connection undeniable. Slowly, Logan wins her over. What starts out as a fling, soon spirals into much more than they are prepared for.

When a mistake threatens to tear them apart, will they have the strength to hold on to each other?

*This book is a standalone. Each book in The Bennett Family series will follow a different couple.* 


In my haste to put distance between us, I squeeze the paper cup too hard, and the water splashes over my chest.
All over my chest. And I’m wearing a white dress and a freaking white sports bra beneath it, which means my boobs are covered by a thin fabric that immediately gets soaked. So, basically, I’m flashing my girls in Logan’s face. Perfect. His eyes light up, as if he just found out that Christmas came earlier. I bet he’s sporting wood behind his designer pants. 
Hyperventilating, I turn around, searching desperately for something to cover myself with. Luckily, my jacket escaped the flood. I grab some napkins from the table and dry myself the best I can. Afterward, I put my jacket on and button it up. Turning around, I notice Logan hasn’t moved. He’s still staring at my chest, as if he’s hoping the jacket will become transparent too. Eventually, his eyes find mine. 
“You and I should go on a date,” Logan announces.
“Wow, my boobs impressed you that much?”
“What?”
“Were you going to ask me before I soaked my girls with water? I want the truth.”
Logan cocks an eyebrow. “Is my answer going to change your answer?”
“Maybe,” I answer playfully. 
He narrows his eyes. “Are you setting a trap?”
“Maybe,” I repeat.
Logan whistles. “Okay, full disclosure. I decided to ask you out when I stepped into this office. So, yeah. We should go on a date.” 
I laugh. I cannot help it. “Most people put a question mark at the end of the sentence when they ask that.”
“I’m not most people. Besides, why ask a question? You risk receiving an answer you don’t want to hear.”
“I see. So, your solution is to boss people around?”
“You’re stalling.” His gaze pins me down. 
“Logan—”
“Nadine.”
Taking a deep breath, I say, “I need to concentrate on the shop and making a life here for myself. I don’t want to date anyone for a while.”
Logan clutches his heart theatrically. “I’m offended. I’m not just anyone. I thought we established that.”
“I’ll pretend you are.” 
“Ouch, that hurt.” Tilting my head up, he adds, “You like me.”
“You’re getting ahead of yourself. What makes you think that?” I ache for him everywhere, but he can’t possibly know that. 
“Your nipples were very happy to see me even before you soaked them.” 
I groan at that. I have to remember to wear perfect-coverage bras when I’m around Logan. Or when I’m about to meet Ava. I’m sure this won’t be the last setup she pulls on me. Mental note: Logan is not only sexy and stubborn, but also blunt. I shouldn’t ask him a question unless I want to hear the goddamn honest truth.



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
