Will a budding wedding planner and her bad boy neighbor stop banging heads and start hearing wedding bells in the sexy second novel in USA TODAY bestselling author Lauren Layne’s irresistible new series that marries Sex and the City with The Wedding Planner?

When small-town girl Heather Fowler finally gets promoted from assistant to actual wedding planner, she’s determined to make it as one of Manhattan’s elite Wedding Belles. Unfortunately, her first client demands an opulent black-tie affair at the Plaza…in five months’ time. Heather’s days quickly become a flurry of cake tastings, dress-fittings, RSVP cards, and bridal tantrums. But what she’s really losing sleep over is the live music blaring from her playboy neighbor’s apartment all night.

Five years ago, Josh Tanner was an up-and-comer on Wall Street, complete with the penthouse and the migraines. But a grim cancer diagnosis made him realize there is more to life than the corner office. If only he could convince his pretty, workaholic neighbor to let loose, too. As Heather lets down her guard, Josh is surprised when he starts falling for the sweet, vulnerable woman hiding beneath those power suits. Soon, it’s Heather’s turn to convince Josh to take the biggest risk of all: love.

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Alexis and Logan are next! Finally after all the teasing they will get a chance at their happily ever after. I know this isn't their book and I should talk about Heather and Josh, but after the events in this book I knew I had to read their story next or I would kill someone. I ship them so much and I was getting impatient. 

I enjoyed Josh and Heathers story a lot more than I enjoyed To Have and to Hold. I liked this couple a lot and their story ran smoothly. I might have not liked Aprils appearance, but I didn't face any other problems until the Logan/Alexis thing came up again. From what I have read in this book, I got the impression I will enjoy the next one for more than one reasons. I won't say anything father because it will spoil some  parts of the plot in this book.

One of the good things about this book is that I was able to understand Joshs motives and even if I didn't agree with him, I couldn't help but feel sympathetic towards him. He wanted to be a free man who lives his life to the fullest, but instead he had trapped himself into a cage and Heather was the one who freed him. I am not going to pretend I understand why the friction between Heather and her mother exists and why they couldn't solve it. 

I loved the way Josh tried to fix what he had broken when he decided to push Heather away. It's a big spoil, but it's also my favorite part of the book and that's why I mentioned it. I am going to recommend the book just because I loved that. And I will repeat that Alexis and Logan are next!!! Yeah!
