Sunday Spotlight

It’s no secret that I absolutely adore Lauren Layne’s books. She writes my kind of contemporary romances with witty characters, steamy romances and a main couple that hits me with feels all over the place. This week, I’ll be featuring my favorite book in her Wedding Belles series and it’s a book that I hope will capture your attention long enough that you’d want to give it a try because it really is a great read.

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 were two fantastic characters with amazing chemistry. They were next door neighbors that got on each others nerves because Josh kept Heather up all night with his blaring music and loud sexy time shenanigans. Watching these two battle wits for an entire book made for quite an entertaining read.

Memorable Scenes

Here is a reason why I love this book so much and am featuring it today on the blog. Just a little taste of the chemistry and banter that I loved through out the entire book. You’ll definitely want to check out the entire book for yourself.

“Don’t do it, 4C.”

Heather glanced at Josh as he came and sat back in the chair next to hers, reaching for his coffee.

“Don’t do what?”

“Don’t go all soft on me now and let me think you’re nice. I won’t be able to handle it.”

“I am nice,” she insisted. “Super nice.”

“Excellent,” he said, back to his easy charm and wide smile. “So would now be a good time to tell you that my band’s coming over to practice tonight?”

Heather shoved her empty coffee mug his way. “Let’s just say that you making me more of that heavenly coffee is your best chance of me not strangling you with a guitar string.”

He scooped up her mug and stood with a wink. “Damned if I don’t like you a little bit, 4C, especially when you’re all pissy and shit.”

Heather ignored this, pointedly looking out the window as she waited for him to return with more of the insane coffee.

But damned if she didn’t like him a littl bit, too.

The Wedding Belles series is a charming series about three women who work as wedding planners together. Each book follows a different Belle as she journeys her way to her own happy ending and For Better or Worse follows Heather Fowler. Heather’s story is my favorite book in the series and it’s a lot of fun.

    I love her books! I haven’t started this series yet, although I have already purchased them. I’m in the middle of the Oxford series. I don’t know why I’ve been putting them off, but I’m making up for lost time now. Bonus: the library has several of her books available, too.
