Book Description....

"USA TODAY bestselling author Lauren Layne is the “queen of witty dialogue and sexy scenes” (Rachel Van Dyken)! Now, Sex and the City meets The Wedding Planner in The Wedding Belles, her sizzling brand new contemporary romance series about three ambitious wedding planners who can make any bride’s dream come true... but their own.

Discovering her fiance is an international con man just moments before they exchange vows devastates celebrity wedding planner Brooke Baldwin's business—and breaks her heart. Now a pariah in Los Angeles, she seeks a fresh start in New York City and thinks she’s found it with her first bridal client, a sweet—if slightly spoiled—hotel heiress. Then she meets the uptight businessman who’s holding the purse strings.

Seth Tyler wishes he could write a blank check and be done with his sister Maya's fancy-pants wedding. Unfortunately, micromanaging the event is his only chance at proving Maya’s fiance is a liar. Standing directly in his way is the stunning blonde wedding planner whose practiced smiles and sassy comebacks both irritate and arouse him. He needs Brooke’s help. But can he persuade a wedding planner on a comeback mission to unplan a wedding? And more importantly, how will he convince her that the wedding she should be planning... is theirs?"

"To Have and To Hold" by Lauren Layne

My Thoughts....

After what had happened to Brooke Baldwin as she starts a new life in NY being a wedding planner working for Wedding Belles after her own disastrous wedding came to a abrupt end in L.A.  Brooke had high hopes about her new job until she meets her first clients older brother Seth Tyler.  We find from the read that Seth wanted to give his sister Maya the wedding of her dreams but he wasn't to sure about her groom Neil that she had only known for a few months.  This is where the plot thickens and we get a very interesting story that will involve the wedding planner,Brooke, Seth, Maya, Grant and a few other secondary characters [Heather, Alexis & Logan] that will add to this delicious story that seems genuine and so realistic.  What happens when Brooke has to deal with the unhappy Seth...the brother of Maya the bride?  There will be some misunderstanding about this hold deal...[hiring a PI,]?   Will Seth stop his controlling ways? Now what was that all about? What about Brooke with her trust issues?  Will there be some chemistry between Seth and Brooke?  Well, to find out you will have to pick up this good read to see for yourself how well this author brings it all out to her reader.    I will say this author has a way of capturing  the readers thoughts, emotions and even weaving them into the read where you will seem to be right there in the midst of it all.  The reader will be left wanting more answers that I am sure will come out in later series.  So, if you are looking for a good romance read "To Have and To Hold" will bring it to you featuring Brooke and Seth.

I received this book from NOR for an honest review.
