Release Blitz for Layla Hagen's Kiss Me Forever

Release Date: July 22

Last night, he was a sexy stranger I couldn't get enough of.
Today, he's my new boss, who I can't seem to please.

Bad luck seems to follow me. Last night, I grabbed a drink at the bar near my new workplace.
I met the most sophisticated man when he “stole” my table. We bantered and danced, and I went home with a stranger for the first time in my life.

The next morning, I find out my hot one-night stand is my new boss. Gone is the playful, charming man from last night. Luke Maxwell is all business, acting as if our night together never happened.
He’s impossible to please, but I’m determined to succeed. This job is my chance to prove myself and put my past—and my ex—behind me. I’m not going to mess this up.

But then we go on a business trip together and end up stranded for the night. Instead of discussing our project, he kisses me in the elevator and throws a jealous fit, claiming I’m his.
Apparently, I’m not the only one who can’t forget our evening together after all.

Lisa Kane's 3.5 Star Review

Luke Maxwell is over the top rich and a clever businessman with a highly successful architect firm, Supreme Architecture.  He has multiple brothers (some whose stories have been told and some yet to be told) and a couple of female cousins too. They are all wealthy and super close. This is my first read into a series about these family members. I'll get to the whole back stories on these characters later. 

He checks out a new bar that just opened up around the corner from his Chicago office. As he heads to a table, there is a gorgeous female vying to grab the same table. They have some cute banter, shared the table and a few drinks. Her name is Megan Pierce. She's excited and nervous to be starting an internship the next day and she just came from a dry run of finding the business and feeling confidant to start her job. She wandered in to have a calming drink. Only first names were exchanged and no work talk was allowed. Next thing you know, they tumbled into bed at his penthouse. The next day they exchanged phone numbers and went their separate ways. 

You do know where this is headed right? Imagine Megan's surprise when she turns up for her first day and Luke is the owner of the firm. Both are shocked, but Luke is a little better at recovering. Megan isn't sure she should take this job and leaves to think about it. But she does take it and they fit together like pieces of a puzzle.

Megan settles in, Luke tries to act professional and of course, feelings spill over. Megan wants to apply for the US Architecture Design Award. Luke's firm has had finalists and winners for that award and he does all he can to mentor Megan to do her best work. 

There are a few hiccups along the couple's path to love. Just a little angst, but enough to add spice to the story. Now, for the things that bothered me. I didn't read the previous books in the series, and I got bored of every characters' back story being told over and over. I can go back and read them if I choose, but those stories aren't necessary for this one to evolve. Also, does any family really exist that have this much love and sweetness and sugar? Luke demonstrates over and over what he would do for his brothers and cousins. It's a little too much. I am not a fan of insta-love but that's exactly how things are between Megan and Luke. Things moved way too quickly from a one night stand into happily ever after. I have read other works from this author and have enjoyed them. This one just wasn't my cup of tea.
