It all began in Rome…
I was only supposed to show Cole Winchester the city. I was aware of his reputation, a seductive charmer hellbent on bachelorhood, but I hadn't prepared for him to get past my defenses. Cole was nothing like the serious businessman I imagined. He was sinfully hot and way too flirty for my broken heart. But, it was just vacation after all. I thought I'd never see him again. Only I do.
Cole calls me the very day I return to New York. My residency has been my sole focus for the past few years—my passion and my refuge. I've loved and lost and I don't know how to open up again. But Cole is melting my fears with every kiss and touch, willing to move mountains to make me happy and help me heal. And what scares me the most? I might just let him.

Absolutely Loved Laney and Cole’s Sizzling Romance
I loved One Beautiful Promise! Layla Hagen has once again delivered an incredible story filled with everything that I love in sizzling romance stories. Who doesn't love hot sexy men, strong females, big loving families, who always support one another, and wonderful characters? I received an ARC of One Beautiful Promise by Layla Hagen for an honest review. I can truly say that the books in this series keep getting better and better, and I think that One Beautiful Promise is my favorite, I have said that after I have read each book in the series. Layla Hagen has once again shown that she in an amazing storyteller. One Beautiful Promise is the fourth book in the Very Irresistible Bachelor series. I loved every page of One Beautiful Promise and could not put it down. Layla Hagen definitely did not disappoint with One Beautiful Promise. I really enjoy how she writes her stories in the first person from the perspective of the main characters. I love knowing what the main characters are thinking and feeling. I love the lighter moments where I found myself smiling and laughing. My favorite moments are the ones that cause me to sigh, say aww to myself with tears filling my eyes. One Beautiful Promise is the love story of Laney Smith, general surgery resident and Cole Winchester, the Charmer, COO of Caldwell Real Estate. Laney and Cole first meet in Rome. Laney is there doing a rotation in general surgery and Cole just completed a deal with an Italian company for a partnership. Laney is the best friend of Isabelle Gallagher, Josie’s sister. Isabelle set up the meeting between Laney and Cole. They enjoyed their short time in Rome together, but left each other saying, “what happened in Rome, stays in Rome.” When Cole returns to New York, he realizes that he wants to explore a relationship with Laney. Both Laney and Cole, work long hours, but begin spending time together when they can squeeze in. Their relationship quickly escalates to a sizzling romance, but they want to take things slowly, and not make too many plans for the future. Laney continues to deal with her feelings regarding the sudden death of her husband two years ago after only being married for six months. Cole loves that Laney always takes care of others and put their needs ahead of her own, especially when Skye suffers complications with her pregnancy. Laney and Cole admit their true feelings for one another, but Cole is concerned about Laney’s reaction when Tess teases him about being husband material. Cole confronts Laney and lets her know how he really feels. I love Laney and Cole's story and the descriptions of the Rome and NY settings. One Beautiful Promise felt like a family reunion and catching up with all the other characters from the other books in the series. I love the characters and the family dynamic in One Beautiful Promise, they feel like family. I enjoy all the interactions among the Winchester siblings and meeting the Gallagher siblings, it feels like real family love and makes me laugh at their teasing, I especially love the Winchester family "no secret" policy. One Beautiful Promise is filled with all the elements that I have come to love and expect in Layla Hagen stories. I love the bittersweet and poignant moments, as well as the surprise plot twists. One Beautiful Promise was a wonderful story. So glad that Cole found his one, and his happily ever after, even though he really was not looking for one. I especially love how the book title is integrated into Cole’s proposal. I cannot wait for Tess to discover her irresistible bachelor.
I love how Layla Hagen writes a beautiful Romance story.
This is book 4 in the Irresistible Bachelors series.
I just love Layla Hagen’s books. They are such feel good yet steamy stories. This book is no different. I love how this one shows the families closeness. It has characters show up from other books in the series and you get to see some of what is happening with them as well as the new story that is unfolding. However it is written as a stand-alone so you don’t have to read the previous books to enjoy the store. This story is about Cole Winchester the self proclaimed forever Bachelor. He sure did make me swoon though after he met Laney (a widowed Doctor). I totally recommend this book if you love heartwarming, steamy romances with a lot of Family values.
I received a ARC copy of this book for a honest voluntary review.
