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.
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.
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
Yay!!! I was so happy to see Alexis get her own story and discover who she really was under that cool exterior. I have been a huge fan of the series from the very beginning, but this one might just be my favorite!
Alexis and Logan met 8 years ago in a pub as total strangers, yet they would become so much more. Layne made it known from the very beginning that Alexis was meant to be with Logan even if she didn’t realize it yet. It would not be a fast romance…more like a slow burn that once ignited might burn both Alexis and Logan. One thing is for certain, once they crossed that line, things would never be the same between them.
Alexis is intelligent, beautiful, and very driven, but she hasn’t allowed herself to find happiness. As you will see when reading, she has her reasons for closing herself off from love. Logan is also intelligent and super sexy. He’s very patient with Alexis. He tries not to push too hard because he doesn’t want to lose her friendship, but his patience is running thin. Who could blame him? He’s waited 8 years for her to see “him.” When he pushes the boundaries with their first kiss, oh how my heart melted! What a sexy, sweet first kiss! When he decides to go after her, another side of Logan comes out, and it’s sexy and irresistible. He knows he has to be careful though. Logan “was ready to cannonball into the water and she was still dipping her toe in.” He definitely pushed her limits, and I loved seeing another side to Alexis…one she may not have even known existed. It was very difficult for Alexis to give any the smallest part of her heart to anyone, especially when she will have to face the pain of her past. Not being able to trust others with her love and trust, it will be a struggle for Logan too. He is trusting Alexis with his heart, and I waited with bated breath hoping she wouldn’t crush Logan. My God, he has waited for this woman for 8 years!!!!
Reading their story was almost like a fairytale for adults. It was magical, sweet, and sexy! Even if Alexis was a reluctant princess, Logan was the perfect Prince Charming! I hated to see this wonderful series end, but Layne gave us the perfect ending! Now…I will have to wait to see what she has in store for us, but I’m 100 percent sure it will be AMAZING!!!!
