Book Review: My One And Only By Layla Hagen


Tess Winchester loves her life. Her family is growing with new nieces and nephews for her to spoil. And her lingerie business is really taking off, so in order to keep up with demand she needs more capital. Though Tess had always dreamed about finding Mr. Right, and having a family of her own, dating hasn’t been easy so working extra hours is never a problem.
When an opportunity of a lifetime arises, Tess jumps at the chance to present to the principal of Harrington & Co, New York’s hottest investment firm.
She’s determined to make the right impression, but when Liam accidently walks in the ladies room during a wardrobe malfunction, things get off to an… interesting start.

Tess isn’t Liam’s type, they’re too different:
She’s a romantic. He’s a realist.
She’s a dreamer. He’s a practical man.
Besides, if they’re going to sign a deal, it’s best not to mix business with pleasure. Something they both agree upon.

Despite their differences, Liam finds himself doing anything in his power to win her over. She’s captivating, and he won’t back down until they explore the connection that keeps him on his toes. He can’t get enough of her sassy mouth, her tenacity, and the tenderness that encounters him at every turn. Her blushes drive him crazy. Liam wants Tess.
And Liam always gets what Liam wants.

My Review

Let me start by saying Liam was certainly an irresistible bachelor. Talk about chemistry and sparks flying, this book had it in spades. From Liam and Tess first meeting I got hooked into their story. I wanted to experience it all with them.

I loved Tess. I loved how she blabbered when she got nervous. I loved her confidence in what she did and I loved the passion she put into it . I admire her love for her family it was so inspiring to read. I loved the way she interacted with every member of her family. I loved how she cared for Liam’s grandma Ellie even though she hadn’t even met her ( when you read that part you’ll understand what I mean).

I really like when an heroine brings out another side to a hero we haven’t seen but doesn’t entirely change his character in the process, because no body’s character can be changed completely either in fiction on in reality. An alpha Male will always be an alpha Male. She brought out a bit of spontaneity in him that he seriously lacked.

I think Layla Hagen added to much alpha male personality to Liam, because why the heck will you be jealous of your self( Tess had referred to him in third person).

My issue with this book is that it lacked a bit of intensity in the later chapters. The first few chapters hooked me but the last chapters let me go 😉. The characters got together, they had sex, they met each other’s families but it missed a bit of bang!!. I love when a romance novel has that bang that hits you so hard it throws you off balance a bit.

I really loved getting to know the characters and watching them explore their sexual chemistry. This book was hands down swoony and got me feeling things all over. I liked the book but it certainly didn’t blow me away. The selling point in this book was Tess she completely stole my heart. The steamy scenes were an added bonus that I absolutely loved and enjoyed.

It’s was a good read and I recommend for lovers of swoony romance books and irresistible heroes.

Happy reading !! Till next time
