Sex and the City meets The 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.

Alexis 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.

Logan 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 forever...

I waited for so long to read this story. We we teased about Alexis and Logan since the first book and now that their time finally came I was a tad disappointed. I wasn't completely satisfied because Alexis spend more time being hung up on her ex of ten years than realizing what a stud she had all along. I might not have a sister, but I don't think I would have made such a big deal of what happened.  Honestly, after Alexis explained to the other girls what happened I couldn't understand why she was acting like that. I think her sister was very respectful and Alexis was just over dramatic. She was too bitter for my taste. Logan was chasing her, trying to make her see that he is the one for her. He was so hang up on her and she kept rejecting him and I felt sorry for him. I loved that he was making a move on her, but always left the ball at her court forcing her to do something. I loved Logan in this book and I disliked Alexis.

If Alexis weren't as stubborn and bitter as she was things would have been much easier for me as a reader and for Logan as her romantic interest. I wanted this story so much, but these new layers in Alexis character ruined it for me. The stuff in the end were the ones I liked the most. Everything that happened there and Logan saved the book from being a DNF or a 1 star rating.
