Publisher Description

USA TODAY bestselling author Lauren Layne is the “queen of witty dialogue and sexy scenes” (Rachel Van Dyken)! Now, Sex and the City meets The Wedding Planner in The Wedding Belles, her sizzling brand new contemporary romance series about three ambitious wedding planners who can make any bride’s dream come true…but their own.

Discovering her fiancé is an international con man just moments before they exchange vows devastates celebrity wedding planner Brooke Baldwin’s business—and breaks her heart. Now a pariah in Los Angeles, she seeks a fresh start in New York City and thinks she’s found it with her first bridal client, a sweet—if slightly spoiled—hotel heiress. Then she meets the uptight businessman who’s holding the purse strings.

Seth Tyler wishes he could write a blank check and be done with his sister Maya's fancy-pants wedding. Unfortunately, micromanaging the event is his only chance at proving Maya’s fiancé is a liar. Standing directly in his way is the stunning blonde wedding planner whose practiced smiles and sassy comebacks both irritate and arouse him. He needs Brooke’s help. But can he persuade a wedding planner on a comeback mission to unplan a wedding? And more importantly, how will he convince her that the wedding she should be planning…is theirs?

Love the Wedding Belles so far

Brooke Burke was left at the altar in the worst way... the groom was taken away in handcuffs. Seth Tyler lost his dad to a heart condition everyone knew about but him. These two have both been hurt by people close to them and are not looking for love anytime soon. Their tumultuous relationship and their smoking chemistry and strong pull to each other is what kept me turning the pages.

Overall I recommend this book for people that want sweet, sexy and fun with a small dash of drama and some serious swoon worthy moments. I look forward to the next installment of this new series.

A Fine Romance

At first blush, To Have and to Hold is an easy, breezy story that you will gobble up like candy. But it's so much more - it's about family, second chances, friendship and a wish for a love that is true. It's a heart-stealer for sure.

I really liked To Have and to Hold not only because it is set in the most romantic place on earth - New York City. But Through the eyes of west coast transplant Brooke we see its hustle and bustle, as well as its true beauty and magic. It really is the perfect place to find true love.

Brooke & Seth were such a fabulous pair who brought out the best and the worst in each other. But in their every scene together I felt both their connection and chemistry -- both of which crackled off the page.

This is a great introduction to the Wedding Belles series, I am really looking forward to reading the next installments. Enjoy!

Happy reading!

I was a little heartbroken when I finished Lauren’s “Love, Sex, and Stilettos” series and the “Oxford” series. But I’ve found a new love in the Wedding Belles.

You warm up to Seth’s coldness and cheer on Brooke’s unwavering belief in happily ever after. Can’t wait to read the rest of the Belle series.
