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.

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!

Heather & Josh
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.
Sweet & Sexy
Fantastic read! Loved the writing in this entertaining, sexy, and sweet romance. Excellent pace and build. Well developed with really likable and interesting characters. So many woven details that made this story pure perfection. I couldn't put this down because I loved every minute of this story. Just thinking about this story makes me happy.
I adored Heather and Josh. Heather is so feisty and I loved all her comebacks in their flirty, snarky banter. Josh was so playful and sexy. As their chemistry gradually builds I found myself smiling and rooting for them with every encounter. Enjoyed all the secondary characters that added so much to this story. Loved Josh's mom. Loved the update on Brooke and Seth's romance from book one in the series. Adored learning and seeing more of the Belles relationship and getting to know more about Logan. It's going to kill me to wait for Alexis and Logan's story. Highly Recommended!
