Sex and the City meets The Wedding Planner in this prequel to USA TODAY bestselling author Lauren Layne’s The Wedding Belles series about three high-powered New York City women who can plan any wedding—but their own.

Up-and-coming wedding photographer Leah McHale’s career is on the rise–thanks in no small part to the Wedding Belles, the elite New York wedding planning agency that always throws top-tier business Leah’s way. So when one of the Belles asks Leah to fill in at the former First Daughter's wedding, Leah is overjoyed to say yes–until she finds out who she’ll be working with.

Jason Rhodes is the one man who was able to capture Leah’s heart and, once he had it, promptly stepped all over it and left her broken. Now he’s working side-by-side with her at the biggest wedding of the season and Leah is determined to give him the cold shoulder. Despite his persistence, she is not going to fall for his charming, impish ways again. Not even if he still has that killer, irresistible smile...

My Review

This book! It's a novella, an introduction into Lauren Layne's newest series, and I totally wanted more!!  It's so good. I read it quickly and didn't want to put it down.  It quickly sucked me in and I was captured in Leah and Jason's world.

Jason and Leah have a past.  They both work in the same profession and have managed to avoid each other for the past year.  Until Leah's friend has an offer she can't refuse. It was a juicy story and I couldn't wait for more of their history to unfold. Not only is their story happening, but also the world around them is interesting and their friends make up a fun piece of the story as well.  Their relationship is rocky, steamy, sweet, sad and oh-so-good! They complement each other and as the reader, I couldn't help but cheer them on. I wanted the walls to come down and for them to enjoy just being in each other's company.  I adored this book (and really, any book from Lauren Layne!) and I can't wait for more from her.  I highly recommend this one!  You won't be disappointed!

Lauren Layne is the USA Today bestselling author of more than a dozen romantic comedies. She lives in New York City with her husband (who was her high school sweetheart--cute, right?!) and plus-sized Pomeranian.

In 2011, she ditched her corporate career in Seattle to pursue a full-time writing career in Manhattan, and never looked back.

In her ideal world, every stiletto-wearing, Kate Spade wielding woman would carry a Kindle stocked with Lauren Layne books.
