Review: Anything For You | The Conner Series by Layla Hagen

Sexy. Sweet. Unapologetically romantic.

Hotshot CEO Landon Connor knows what he wants: success. He knows his way around the boardroom, and his work has been front and center for him since losing his wife. But after sealing the biggest deal of his career, he decides to take a trip to his hometown. Nothing spells vacation like a little time in the LA sun with the boisterous family he’s missed so mu

But the tempting landscape designer working for his sister spells a whole lot more than fun. Maddie Jennings is everything Landon didn’t think he wanted anymore. He can’t get enough of Maddie’s sweetness, or her sensual curves.

Despite fanning herself every time Landon comes near her, Maddie tries to ignore their attraction. But Maddie hasn’t met anyone quite like Landon. He’s sexier than anyone has the right to be, and more intense too.

When Landon romances her with late night walks and flowers, she can’t help giving in to him. His touch is intoxicating, and his love is beautiful.

But can Landon open up his heart for longer than a summer?

There are plenty of things I have come to expect and love from Layla Hagen books – romantic swoonage, fun, hilarious sweet moments and sensually steamy filled chemistry. I have been a fan of Hagen since the Bennett family series, which I will just clear the air to say that I really enjoyed the series. Between the family compositions, the character dynamics, regardless of any lingering pet peeves (I still not a fan of the ‘making love’ theme…), I rather enjoy her writing style.

When I finished the last two books in the Bennett family saga and started noticing the mention of the Connor family, their cousins, then it was announced a new series – let me just pick my mouth up as it hangs wide open! Butter me up and call me Lassy, SIGN ME UP FOR ALL OF IT!

Anything For You is about Landon Conner, the eldest brother who is the twin of Lori. With Landon you get the sense of his family life, very similar to how Sebastian Bennett backbone played out – you got a good lay of the land sort of say. With the introduction of Landon (before I dive into his actual story), Hagen gives tidbits of the Conners themselves. The struggles of the siblings, who is in the family, and how they are close. This is one of the main dynamic setups that I always have come to really enjoy. Of course, back to Landon himself, because swoon me a piece of that hunk meat please – Landon has a really sad past that has left him completely engorged in his company. This has also made him extremely protective, guarded, and rather intense when it comes to his feelings.

Maddie on the other hand is slightly the same but on a different spectrum. She has a slight troubling past with relationships, trusting the wrong people so she is more dependent on herself, but she is still definitely more free with her feelings and her personality. Almost light, easy going type bubble but still keeps herself locked tight on the ultimate goal; really not allowing anything or anyone to stop her from achieving what needs to be done.

This is what I enjoyed most about their chemistry. Of course, at first they are flirtatious, sweet conversations, really just getting to know one another. There is the immediate sexual attraction, which leads to really playful and delicious dialogue between Maddie and Landon. But what I like most is as their conversations grow, they start figuring out each others pasts – what makes them tick, why they are guarded, really leaning on one another for support. Not to mention the sexual tension that develops as well! Gush my loins lovelies, they really do have some steamy fireworks that just makes a grown woman blush.

All in all – I am already in love with what is to come with the new series. The Conner’s will definitely be fun and sweet, beautiful and romantic. The twists that I feel are coming, my fingers are twitching at the ideas.
