Success. Willpower. Ruthless negotiations. Those are three things that have defined my name - Ryker Winchester. It's what I'm good at. I always get what I want.
I was completely unprepared for Heather.
She challenges me and melts under my touch. She's a feisty single mom, and I can't get enough of her. The way she gives in to me is intoxicating, but I need more than hot nights and sexy dates.
When she introduces me to her daughter, I fall for that little girl hook, line and sinker. No one has ever played me for a fool like that kid can do with a single dimpled grin.
I want to keep them both. I want them to be mine to love and to protect.
Heather doesn't trust easily, but I'll prove to her that we'll have an incredible future together.
I'm Ryker Winchester and I'm relentless when I go after what I want.

Layla Hagen is a relatively new author to me and why that is I have absolutely no idea. This is the second book in her latest series and can be read as a stand alone although when time permits I will be looking at reading book one in the series.
The writing was strong and the characters were easy to relate to and I found myself totally invested in the story that M. Hagen wove from the first to the last chapter.
This is Ryker Winchester, is a man who is used to wielding authority and power. The woman who is about to pull the rug right out from under him is Heather, a single mum with an adorable little girl, Avery.
This is a book that left me with a smile on my face, it was also steamy and passionate. Ryker ticked the boxes for me, hot as sin and an alpha who set my heart racing. I loved Heather, she is sassy and feisty and not at all afraid to stand up to Ryker whilst Avery, was such a little cutie that she almost stole the book right from under them.
Heather has been badly hurt before and does not give her trust easily, particularly since she will do whatever it takes to ensure Avery is protected.
I loved how the relationship between Ryker and Heather developed until it becomes impossible to resist and builds into a passionate and explosive love; I also enjoyed the banter between them which only added to my enjoyment. The relationship that Ryker built with Avery was swoon worthy and just about melted my heart.
All in all this was one of those books that gave me all the feels, a little gem that ticked the boxes for me.
Just One Kiss is book 2 in the Very Irresistible Bachelors Series but it can certainly be read as a stand-alone but I’m sure after picking this entertaining romance up you will want to read the previous book.
Ryker Winchester is a man used to getting his own way whether that be in business or his personal life, Heather is the woman about to show him that there’s more to life than power and authority, she’s a single mum with an adorable little girl who steals Ryker’s heart, who would have thought a little girl could bring this man to his knees.....
Heather doesn’t trust easily, she has been hurt before and she certainly won’t let someone close to her daughter if she thinks there us no future so how will she handle this man powering his way into their life’s .......guess you need to read the book to find that out.
This book ticked all my boxes, I loved Ryker and Heather, I laughed at the one liners only an adorable child could deliver, I swooned and I signed and I didn’t want this story to come to an end.
Just One Kiss will certainly be on my best reads of 2020 so I urge you to one click this must read.
Another man to break into your heart & stay there
Just One Kiss
Very Irresistible Bachelors #2
I cannot explain in words how much Layla’s stories resonates with me. I don’t know the reason but her characters break into my heart and stay there. This new series is as amazing as the Bennett & Connor families. Meeting the New York bachelors has been so much fun, and already I can’t wait for book 3. Hunter and now, Ryker are my irresistible men of 2020. In the light of our crazy world right now, it’s been a pleasant break in reality.
Ryker Winchester is famous for his money and family run gala’s, but his choice to stay single makes him more famous for the female members of the world. He’s a bit of a player, but he has no interest in forebears.. He had no time for that. He’s a very competent Venture Capitalist, and sexy as sin in a suit! That is until he winess’ a fight between and man and woman in the bar he casually plays guitar at. Life as Ryker knows it is about to change forever!
Single mum Heather and get young daughter, Avery, has made a move in with her boyfriend in a loft in New York, but in one night her whole world comes crashing down when said boyfriend says he’s leaving her… leaving her with an expensive loft she rents and a single pay check. But when a stranger steps in to defend her. This man is sexy Ryker Winchester.
He knew at first sight something about Heather took his breath away, he wants to know more about her… and he gets that opportunity, but her shocking outburst of a daughter changes everything. He wasn’t prepared for a fire cracker single mum, but his knees come crashing down by sweetheart Avery, a child with so much heartbreak but a smile to brighten any day. Ryker wants them both to be his but Heather and Avery come with baggage that will take time to open and share, but add in Ryker family and it’s all in for Heather. She’s taken back by their love to her and Avery. It was great to see Ryker’s bro’s and sisters, step in as well as Hunter and Josie. This was the perfect read.
