Audiobook Review: Always with You by Layla Hagen, narrated by Sebastian York & Andi Arndt (The Connor Family #6)


Note: The audiobook was provided by the author via Wildfire Marketing Solutions.

I've only read one Layla Hagen title--Your Inescapable Love, back in 2016, and I'd loved it--in all my years of reading, and I don't know if I can provide an explanation for why other than the opportunity to read the other books in that series never presented itself. Pathetic, I know, especially since I'm a stickler for reading a series in order and that book was the fourth in The Bennett Family, and now, my first audiobook from Hagen happens to be sixth one in the spin-off series, The Connor Family. Gah! But I've finally added all the books from both series on my never-ending to-be-read list because listening to this newest audio highlights the sad fact that I've been missing out on some fantastic storytelling.

As I mentioned, Always with You is book six in the author's The Connor Family series, and it's narrated by Sebastian York and Andi Arndt, two of the most popular narrators in the romance genre and that popularity is well-earned. This was an enemies-to-lovers story between hotelier Reid Davenport and PR specialist Hailey Connor. She steps in when an ex of his goes on a smear campaign--one that he didn't deserve--but he isn't all that thrilled at having a stranger butting into his personal life. That doesn't mean, however, that Reid hasn't noticed just how beautiful Hailey is. When he realizes that he needs her--both in and out of the bedroom--will they be able to weather all the storms coming their way?

I loved the chemistry between Reid and Hailey and the organic development of their relationship was one of my favorite things about their story. As much as this was about their love story, though, it was also about family, what with both Reid and Hailey coming from close-knit clans who are highly protective and supportive of them. I REALLY hated Reid's ex, and can I just say that what happened to her was, well, something she deserved. There was some angst and a fair amount of humor, and most importantly, this was all heart and heat. Layla Hagen penned a story that had me hooked and Sebastian York and Andi Arndt made me believe that they really were Reid and Hailey, respectively. Five stars! ❤
