Hotshot CEO Landon Connor knows what he wants: success. He knows his way around the boardroom, and his work has been front and center for him ever since losing his wife. 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 much.
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, and he pursues her every chance he gets.
Despite fanning herself every time Landon comes near her, Maddie tries to ignore their attraction. But Maddie hasn’t met anyone quite like Landon. He’s sexier than anyone has the right to be, and more intense too.
When Landon romances her with late night walks and flowers, she can’t help giving in to him. His touch is intoxicating, and his love is beautiful.
But can Landon open up his heart for longer than a summer?

I’ve read a few of Layla Hagen’s contemporary romances, and I’ve enjoyed them. In a way, they remind me of Bella Andre’s Sullivan series. So when I saw Anything for You, Hagen’s first book in her new series, I knew I wanted to give it a try. When I realized that the audiobook was narrated by Sebastian York, I jumped on it. Anything for You was a really cute contemporary, although it isn’t particularly memorable.
Anything for You is about Logan Connor, a CEO who’s been working nonstop for the last few years, and Maddie Jennings, a landscape designer and small business owner. They meet when Logan comes back home to visit his sister, who happens to have hired Maddie to work on her lawn. Logan and Maddie fall for each pretty quickly, but are worried about a long-distance relationship.
Maddie and Logan were both very easy to like. They are both very hard workers, and care about their families and friends. They respect each other, and I always love a hero and heroine who are respectful and kind to each other (seriously, asshole heroes are not my thing). Maddie and Logan really do make a good couple. Of course they both have to work through some things, both from past relationships and regarding their businesses.
All that said, both Maddie and Logan are kind of forgettable characters. I would even say the same thing about the plot of Anything for You. It’s a perfectly enjoyable novel, but once you finish it, it’s gone from your memory. I think Anything for You by Layla Hagen is a fun read, especially in audiobook format because Sebastian York is amazing. It may not be an all time favorite, but it was still a fun read.
