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.

Book #1 of The Connor Family.
- Addictiveness: Highly addictive. It was a fun, sexy read. That can be done in one sitting.
Character: hero 5/5, heroine 5/5, secondary characters 5/5, growth 5/5, real 5/5 O.M.G! I love this family. Ms. Hagen had me at hello. All these amazing characters that I can’t even choose. Landon was PERFECT! He is THE book-boyfriend. Landon is a widow. After his wife died he become a workaholic trying to avoid more pain in his life. Until he finally decides to visit his family and takes a two-week vacation. He wasn’t counting on his insta-attraction to his sister’s landscaper. He was a great alpha. A bit bossy, but respectful. A gentleman with a really dirty side. He was an amazing brother and a great boyfriend. Yes, swoon-worthy Landon! Maddie, she was AMAZING! A really great heroine. She had sealed her heart after having it broken by her ex, a complete jerk. But, swoon-worthy-Landon, was too much for anyone to resist. He broke her walls by every little action of his. Maddie was sexy, a hard-worker, fun and a great sister. You are so good at dismantling my walls, Landon. Brick by brick. You’re very, very through. by Maddie
- Cover: art 4.5/5, title 5/5, subtitle 5/5, color-font 5/5, buy 5/5 I’m obsessed with book covers. I love to find snippets of the stories within the art. This is a great cover. I can see Landon and Maddie there. I like how they feel in love and I think the city background works really well. I love the title, if fits Landon perfectly. I would buy this book without reading the blurb.
- Plot: believable 5/5, conflict 4/5, dialogue 5/5, ending 5/5, enjoyment 5/5, opening 5/5, pace 5/5, setting 5/5, subplots 5/5, twists 3/5 Great opening and wonderful ending. Interesting conflict and very well written dialogues . Fast-paced with enough heat that made it really enjoyable. It is a fun, sexy read. The plot is cute and sweet. The Connor clan is wonderful.
- Romance: believable 5/5, chemistry 5/5, description 5/5, development 5/5, steam 4/5 Yes! This was a sexy ride. 🙂 It is romantic, sweet and filled with great smut. Several great scenes. But all the smut is pertinent to the plot, it doesn’t feel forced. It happens naturally. This is a true love story.
- Writing Style: Amazing!!! Easy-to-love characters; feel-good romance and wanting-more plot.
- Freshness: There is nothing here that I can say, omg, so original. It is a bit predictable, without any angst and twists. But who cares? This is a very well written story with perfect characters, fantastic romance and great plot.
My first book by Ms. Hagen and I’ve already become a fan. I can’t wait for all the siblings to have their own book. Also Grace and maybe Elisa. Yes, I know, I’m already creating my own story arch. I can’t deny how excited I am for this series!
