To Love And To Cherish ~ Lauren Layne ~ New Release

After 8 years of waiting...he's got 1 month to make her his.

The Wedding Belles #3
Lauren Layne
Releasing Oct 18th, 2016
Pocket Books

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...

Elizabeth's Review

4 Stars - Would Recommend to a Friend

I think this may be my favorite book in the Wedding Belles series. Alexis and Logan have been partners and coworkers for 8 years - since a fateful chance meeting just after they both graduated from grad school. Now, the attraction that has always simmered between them boils over and changes everything in this friends-to-lovers romance. Alexis has been one of those characters that has been an enigma in the previous Wedding Belle books. We knew her without really knowing what made her tick. It was fun to really get to know her and begin to understand why she was so reserved. Logan has been more accessible in our previous meetings with him and I always felt a little bad for him that Alexis didn't see the heart on his sleeve. To Love and to Cherish is a fun, well written journey with these two. They both struggle with the change in the status quo. Their journey isn't smooth, but I appreciated the growth in both characters. Technically, this is a stand alone novel, but the cast of the previous Belles books are key in their secondary roles. I think reading the series in order would add to the enjoyment of this installment, especially in appreciating the changes in Alexis character that are key to the evolving love story.
