For Better or Worse
Will a budding wedding planner and her bad boy neighbor stop banging heads and start hearing wedding bells in the sexy second novel in USA TODAY bestselling author Lauren Layne’s irresistible new series that marries Sex and the City with The Wedding Planner?
When small-town girl Heather Fowler finally gets promoted from assistant to actual wedding planner, she’s determined to make it as one of Manhattan’s elite Wedding Belles. Unfortunately, her first client demands an opulent black-tie affair at the Plaza…in five months’ time. Heather’s days quickly become a flurry of cake tastings, dress-fittings, RSVP cards, and bridal tantrums. But what she’s really losing sleep over is the live music blaring from her playboy neighbor’s apartment all night.
Five years ago, Josh Tanner was an up-and-comer on Wall Street, complete with the penthouse and the migraines. But a grim cancer diagnosis made him realize there is more to life than the corner office. If only he could convince his pretty, workaholic neighbor to let loose, too. As Heather lets down her guard, Josh is surprised when he starts falling for the sweet, vulnerable woman hiding beneath those power suits. Soon, it’s Heather’s turn to convince Josh to take the biggest risk of all: love.
A sweet and sassy romance with a couple that feels as though they could walk off the page and live in real life. I really enjoyed For Better or Worse and am now officially addicted to the Wedding Belle series.
Heather and Josh were sweet, funny and absolutely sassy. I loved their chemistry and banter. Neither was looking for "more" and they certainly resisted it at every turn. The fun and at times, frustration is what makes this book so fabulous.
Title is perfect!
Loved the banter between Josh and Heather! It was a bit of a love/hate relationship at the beginning, but these two eventually figured it out. Josh was so stubborn, I wanted to smack him a few times throughout the book. Good thing he was the perfect combination, (at least for me), of nerdy and sexy with this love of numbers and music. I loved Heather's determination, she was just what Josh needed to get him out of his funk. And the title fits the book perfectly! As far as the Belles go, they are a great bunch and I am dying for Alexis and Logan story - I have a feeling that one is going to be explosive!
I received an ARC via NetGalley for the purpose of an honest review. I was not compensated for this review, all conclusions are my own.
This is book # 2 in The Wedding Belles series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader enjoyment and understanding, I recommend reading the series in order.
Josh is seriously attracted to the angry slash feisty neighbor who tells him to turn down his noise. Can Heather convince him that she needs his help? Planning the wedding of the year is a daunting task. Unless you have an inside track....
Seriously a fun and sexy series. This story was no different. There is this kitchen scene where the moment is so sweet .... and yet they turn up the heat and it gets HOT! Just like any Lauren Layne book, it comes with surprises, laughter, and heat. Are you ready?
