Sex and the City meets The Wedding Planner in The Wedding Belles, a contemporary and witty romance series about three high-powered New York City women who can plan any wedding—but their own.
Alexis Morgan has spent the past six years devoted to turning her tiny start-up into Manhattan’s premiere wedding planning company, The Wedding Belles. Now that her business is thriving, it’s time to turn towards her much neglected personal life, and Alexis approaches her relationships like she does everything else: with a plan. Not a part of that plan is Logan Harris, the silent partner in the Belles, and the one person who’s been there for her since the very beginning. But Alexis needs someone fun, and Logan’s all business, all the time—except when a late night at the office ends with an unexpected kiss that leaves the usually cool and together Alexis reeling.
Logan has lusted after Alexis since the day he walked into the tiny Harlem apartment that used to double as her office. But the ambitious wedding planner has always been untouchable…until now. Alexis has made it clear that she’s on the dating market—and equally clear that he’s not in the running. But when Alexis finds herself in need of a date for her sister’s last minute wedding in Florida, Logan knows it’s the perfect time to show Alexis that there’s more to him than numbers and spreadsheets—and beneath the pinstripes and glasses lies a hot-blooded heartthrob. As Florida’s sultry days turn into even hotter nights, Logan’s out to convince Alexis that the fling of a lifetime could just maybe turn into forever…
Fun, flirty, and exceptionally charming!
This truly is contemporary romance at its best, with the perfect mix of witty banter, familial dynamics, friendship, longing, sexual chemistry, and unconditional love.
The characters are sweet, clever, lovesick, and intriguing. The writing is clear and precise. And the plot builds nicely, flows effortlessly, and has a satisfying, swoop-worthy ending.
I can honestly say that with this series Lauren Layne has proven she can give even the great Nora Roberts a run for her money with storylines that melt your heart and characters you can’t get enough of, and like the first two novels in the Wedding Belles series this is a warm, easy read that shouldn’t be missed.
