The Wedding Belles #3

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…

Favorite Quotes:


Sorry, what was that, Alexis darling? I was just counting your mother’s wrinkles and got distracted because there are just so many – … I’ve seen shar-peis with fewer creases on their face.


Holy crap, Alexis thought, slumping back in her chair in dismayed shock. There were few more startling come-to-Jesus moments than the realization that you were turning into your mother.


I love you with everything, and you won’t give me even a little bit of something.


 My Review:


The Wedding Belles was a fun and entertaining series and it feels bittersweet to write this review knowing this to be the final installment. Lauren Layne has mastered the art of stand-alone volumes within a series. Although would be much more fun to read her entire series, and in the proper order. While this book could be read as a stand alone, there was considerably more info to be gleaned about Alexis and Logan in the previous books. I absolutely adored Logan – he was a sweet and sexy Clark Kent Brit. Alexis was a difficult character to rally behind, as she was a jaded, cold, prickly, aloof, selfish, driven, stubborn, uptight, OCD control freak. I had oodles of pity for Logan and wanted to give him comfort – lots and lots of comfort. Purrr.   But I also developed empathy for Alexis once given the knowledge of her history, although I still wanted to give her a few smacks with my kindle.
