Publisher's Summary

This sexy and heartwarming romance about a sworn bachelor falling for his best friend’s sister will melt your speakers.

Ian Gallagher loves taking risks. It’s how he turned the business he’s built with his brother into a success. But even he can’t cross some rules. His best friend’s sister is strictly off-limits, but when Ellie moves to New York, he jumps at the chance to help her settle in.

One look at her and he realizes that not flirting with her will be a lot harder than he thought, and not just because she’s stunning. He enjoys her laughter and merciless teasing. How can he stay away when all he wants is to get closer?

Ellie Cavanaugh is living her dream. She’s finally working in a Michelin-starred restaurant in New York. Her plan is to get as much experience as possible before opening her own place. Kissing her brother’s best friend is definitely not part of the plan. Neither is opening up to him in ways she never did with anyone. Ellie knows that Ian isn’t looking for forever though. After all, her brother warned her that Ian was a sworn bachelor. And if she’s honest with herself, Ellie isn’t ready for love either. She’s never let anyone in before. But she can’t help giving in to the growing bond between her and Ian, even if it means putting her heart on the line.

Romance and fun as Ian Gallagher meets his match

The last of the Gallagher siblings wavers between denial and fear of loosing his best friend when he falls for that friend’s younger sister. All his siblings are rooting for him in this fairly drama free short romance. Good narrators keep the story moving. Not much to the story, though we do get updates on the rest of the family and could have used a few more of those. A somewhat lackluster and predictable ending but ok as part of the series.

Sweet & Romantic Story

I absolutely loved Ian and Ellie’s story written by author Layla Hagen. This book was low on angst and high on sweet, romantic and sexy moments just like how I like my romance stories at times. For someone who doesn’t do relationships. Ian is such a romantic and utterly swoon worthy with how sweet and tender he is with Ellie. Joe Arden and Maxine Mitchell are fantastic as usual with them narrating this audiobook and they bring the characters and story to life. They do a good job conveying the different emotions Ian and Ellie experience in their relationship as well as the other characters who make appearances throughout the story. Loved listening to Because You’re Mine and I would recommend this audiobook.

Wow

Wow what a great ending to this family series. He was the last one to fall in love. He never expected it but it only takes the one for you to fall. He nearly botched it by letting her take a job elsewhere. But in this series that is what friends and family are for. To help you get it right. Loved it.
Narration was awesome too.
