TO LOVE AND TO CHERISH
The Wedding Belles #3
Releasing Oct 18th, 2016
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 six 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...
Rating/Review: 5 cups of simmering hot brew that's been in the making for quite sometime!
In the third and final installment of Lauren Layne's The Wedding Belles series readers will FINALLY get Alexis and Logan's story. The couple who acts like a couple but isn't really a couple. Where the word unrequited is spelled LOGAN I mean really 8 years is way overdue for some action! And as expected its more bittersweet than the last two books in terms of why it took so long for this two to finally hook up. The story starts with how Alexis met Logan and the beginning of a friendship that has the potential for more. But after 8 years nothing has change except for the fact that Logan is still in love with Alexis who remains oblivious of his feelings. Then choices have to be made and both Alexis and Logan are at a crossroads. Can these two finally get their act together?
Why I specifically love this book is the way Ms. Layne writes. Her way of making everything makes sense, of why Logan would wait so long, of why Alexis can behaved so obliviously. There are no excessive dramas or over the top plot devices. Its just two people with different personalities who everyone knows are just perfect for each other except themselves (in this case Alexis). Layne writes magic in the most ordinary of situation in the most fascinating locals and in the most romantic way two people can connect.
Amazingly poignant, sweet and funny To Have and To Hold is a fitting title and a fantastic end to a great series! Alexis and Logan will always be the power couple of The Wedding Belles :)
