To Have and To Hold by Lauren Layne – Review

To Have and To Hold


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 fiancé is an international conman just moments before they exchange vows devastates celebrity wedding planner Brooke Burke’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’s fancy-pants wedding. Unfortunately, micromanaging the event is his only chance at proving Maya’s fiancé 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?



4 Stars

I really liked Brooke and I really liked Seth, even though he was a bit of a controlling jerk. Together they were so much fun to read about.

My Thoughts

Brooke Burke was left at the altar in the worst way… the groom was taken away in handcuffs. Seth Tyler lost his dad to a heart condition everyone knew about but him. These two have both been hurt by people close to them and are not looking for love anytime soon. Their tumultuous relationship and their smoking chemistry and strong pull to each other is what kept me turning the pages.

Overall I recommend this book for people that want sweet, sexy and fun with a small dash of drama and some serious swoon worthy moments. I look forward to the next installment of this new series.
