Title: Your Tempting Love (The Bennett Family series, book 5) Author: Layla Hagen Genre: Contemporary Romance Release date: 17th February 2017 About Your Tempting Love (Book 5): This is book 5 in The Bennett Family series, but can be read as a standalone since every book features a different couple. Christopher Bennett is a persuasive man. With his magnetic charm and undeniable wit, he plays a key role in the international success of his family’s company. Christopher adores his family, even if they can be too meddling sometimes… like when they recommend him to employ Victoria Hensley’s decorating services for his new apartment in an attempt to set him up with her. Christopher isn’t looking to settle down, but meeting Victoria turns his world upside down. Her laughter is contagious, and her beautiful lips and curves are too tempting. Victoria Hensley is determined not to fall under Christopher’s spell, even though the man is hotter than sin, and his flirty banter makes her toes curl. But Christopher is her client, and she knows better than to get involved with clients. Besides, Victoria isn’t looking for love. After her parents’ death, Victoria is raising her much younger siblings, and she can’t afford any mistakes. But Victoria and Christopher’s chemistry is not just the sparks-flying kind, but the downright explosive kind. Before she knows it, Christopher is training her brother Lucas for soccer tryouts and reading bedtime stories to her sister Chloe. Victoria wants to resist him, but Christopher is determined, stubborn, and oh-so-persuasive. When their attraction and connection both spiral out of control, will they be able to risk it all for a love that is far too tempting?

When I walk up Victoria’s porch on Saturday morning, I can hear a war waging inside the house.
“Chloe, you can't wear that shirt again. It's dirty. Take it off now.” Victoria's voice sounds stern but tired.
“But I like it,” Chloe retaliates.
“It's dirty and smelly,” Lucas says. “Why do you want to be smelly?”
For a few minutes, I wait outside the door for the spirits to calm down, but things just seem to escalate. It's best if I announce my presence, even if I'm twenty minutes early.
The second I ring the bell, the voices die down but then start again, now as low whispers. After a few hurried orders of “behave” and “pick your socks up off the floor,” the door swings open.
"Hi," I say.
"You're here early," Victoria exclaims. She wears a bright orange robe she desperately tightens around her. Clearly she meant to change before my arrival. Something is different about her this morning. There are shadows under her eyes, and she looks utterly disheveled. She looks down at the gym bag in my hand as if considering something.
"Should I wait outside, or in my car?" I joke because she seems to need some lighting up.
"God, no." If possible, she gets even more flustered than before, shaking her head and opening the door wider. "Sorry, I'm a bit of a mess this morning."
"There's no need to explain yourself to me," I assure her as I walk inside. The little devils are nowhere to be seen. "Where did the kids disappear to? I heard them when I walked up onto the porch."
"Chloe agreed to change when she heard the doorbell. Sienna's helping her. Lucas went to change into soccer-appropriate clothes. Do you need to change?"
"Nah, this will do. I'll change into a new shirt afterward." I point to the gym bag, in which I packed a towel, shower gel, and a new shirt.
"Sorry for my outfit. I meant to change into something decent, but…."
And maybe it's because she seems to get more distressed by the second, but I resort to the one thing I know will take her mind off it.
"Hey, I'm a big proponent of indecency. You'd make my day if you told me you're wearing a camisole underneath that." Seeing her blush, I can't help leaning in and adding in a slight whisper, "And no panties."
My words have the desired effect of making her laugh. "I'm not even awake enough to come up with a witty reply to that. Let's go in the kitchen. I'll make you a sandwich."
As I follow her, I actually make an effort to avoid ogling her round, perky ass. Her robe is tightened around her middle, which highlights her other curves more than I wish it would.
"Do you ever leave the house wearing just your robe?"
"I know my choice of clothes is oddly colorful sometimes, but I don't go out of the house in what's practically underwear."
"Not even to get the mail or something?"
She turns around as we enter the small kitchen, pursing her lips. "What's with all the questions?"
"Just wondering if any of your neighbors saw what I'm seeing right now. I might have to kill a few if the answer's yes."
Her question takes me by surprise, and damn, I haven't been territorial with a woman in a long time. Victoria keeps surprising me. Not only that, she makes<em> me</em> surprise myself, and that has never happened before. Maybe this is why, despite my best efforts, I can't tone down the flirting. Okay, scratch that. I'm not even making a decent effort. If anything, I'm looking for any opportunity to make her blush.
A slow smile spreads on her face. "Just think about all those men who saw me in a bikini."
I love this woman's spirit and talent for banter. Still, that doesn't make me less of an ass. All I want is to prop her up on this counter, bury myself inside her, and lure sounds of pleasure out of her delicious mouth.
