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.
Heather and Josh are amazing characters. You’re in their corner from the get-go. They’re hilarious and hard-working, and you want them to succeed.
The best part of this story for me was the banter. Oh my goodness, the banter. I loved it. There was such great chemistry, and fun between Heather and Josh. I loved that they had good nicknames for each other, that they teased each other and that they were there for each other.
Also the end of chapter 18…I got goosebumps. And I might have squealed a little bit, and then read the section again because it was just so good.
Overall, this was a fantastic book. I read it in about 4 to 5 hours. I stayed up until 2 am finishing it because it was just so good. Totally loved it. Read it. Read it now.
