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 eight 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...
Friends to Lovers Romance
"To Love and to Cherish" by Lauren Layne is book number three in the "Wedding Belles" series. This is Alexis Morgan and Logan Harris' story.
Alexis and Logan are partners in the Wedding Belles company. Logan is a silent partner and the accountant for the business. They have been in partnership for the past eight years. Logan from the beginning has had feelings for Alexis and has been waiting for the right time.
This is a sweet friends to lovers romance. Overall, I enjoyed Logan and Alexis' story. I fell in love with Logan from the start. Alexis was a little harder to get to know. At times I wanted to smack some sense into her. I guess at times we all have a hard time seeing something great that is right in front of our face. Will Alexis take a chance on love or will she be her own worst enemy?
FYI, includes mature content.
Love ladies of this series!
Alexis is the example to all women of what a successful, career driven, class act, focused women looks like and yet she lacks the one thing we all want... and that's to be loved and wanted.. Logan has loved her from day one, he's waited until the right time to proclaim the love he has for her that is beyond the friendship level... beautiful characters, love storyline, New York, sexy, gorgeous, living life, falling in love this book has it all ... read in one night! Highly suggest it!
Fantastic Ending to a Great Series!
Fantastic! I could not put this down. Loved every moment of this story. Well written with such excellent characters with simmering chemistry. I loved getting all the past history on Alexis and Logan and how the Belles' were started. Loved the build and plot as well as watching the dynamics between these two. Logan is one hot Brit and I truly loved how he knew Alexis so well. These two have some serious simmering heat between them. I just loved when Logan became more demanding of Alexis and her feelings for him. Of course the secondary characters, the Belles' and their significant others really come to Logan assistance and helped pushed these two in the right direction with their feelings. I am truly going to miss these fabulous characters that Lauren Layne made a part of this great series.
I voluntarily agreed to read and post a honest review on a ARC of this book.
