The Wedding Belles Novella
Release Date: June 6, 2016
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…
Prior to becoming an author, Lauren worked in e-commerce and web-marketing. In 2011, she and her husband moved from Seattle to New York City, where Lauren decided to pursue a full-time writing career. It took six months to get her first book deal (despite ardent assurances to her husband that it would only take three). Since then, Lauren’s gone on to publish ten books, including the bestselling Stiletto series, with several more on the way in 2015.
Lauren currently lives in Chicago with her husband and spoiled Pomeranian. When not writing, you’ll find her at happy hour, running at a doggedly slow pace, or trying to straighten her naturally curly hair.
I adored this novella from Lauren Layne. From This Day Forward was a fabulous start to her new Wedding Belles series and it did a great job of getting me addicted to all that will be coming our way with future books. I can’t wait!!
I loved everything about this novella especially the two main characters, Jason and Leah. A year ago these two were well on their way towards happily ever after together. However, pride and a misunderstanding ended it all abruptly.
Their story moves at a quick pace and I read the entire novella in one sitting. Jason and Leah’s quick wit and banter was enticing and hilarious. Their verbal foreplay created this sexual tension that was exciting and left me rooting for this couple to re-connect.
So if you are looking for a series that will just make you happy, then I highly recommend you check out From this Day Forward and eventually all the other books in this series. It’s definitely a fun and entertaining story.
