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...

Why am I waiting for this book?
I'm a big fan of Lauren Layne's because she writes well-crafted protagonists that are intelligent and fun. She is one of my few go-to authors because she consistently writes books that I enjoy; I haven't been disappointed by anything of hers...yet! This particular book piques my interest because the hero is British. As a Brit myself, I'm often left gutted when a non-British writer doesn't manage to nail the Britishness of the protagonist(s). The fact that this book is a romantic comedy and I find the author's written humour funny bodes well, especially as I don't tend to find American humour laugh out loud funny most of the time. So my expectations are high and I hope this one hits the spot!

What are you waiting for?


  1. Logan Harris sounds interesting! It's so sweet when friends/colleagues turn to more, but so rare to find these types of romances in books! I love the cover too, what a gorgeous choice!

  2. Never read anything by this author but this book sounds great! Thanks for talking about it :)

  3. Lauren Layne really is awesome. I love her books. Great pick.
