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.


For Better or Worse, the second full length book in the Wedding Belles series is all sorts of fantastic! From the start of the page readers will be so engrossed and captivated with the story of Heather and Josh. Heather from the start of the series was always present in the periphery but she didn't really make a lasting impression at first. But in this book, we get to know her personality, what drives her and what she sees in her future. When Josh comes in the picture, the chemistry between them was just perfect. The opposites attract/friendship to lovers theme was so perfectly balanced it hit the right notes for this wonderful story. The dialogue was always on point, humorous, witty and so real it just made you smile and laugh while reading. The developing relationship between Josh and Heather was all your romantic comedy movies blended together to give you that equal parts funny, poignant and sweetly sexy romance that made your day. Josh does have his douche bag moments, all perfectly understandable at some point given his situation. He does make up for it with his grand gesture in the end. Lauren Layne has clearly created another series that will be a constant re-read for a long time. Looking forward to reading Alexis and Logan's story!
