To Love and Cherish by Lauren Layne – Review

reviewTo Love and Cherish


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…




My Thoughts

I was beyond excited to start this book. I have read all of the Belles books and have been intrigued by Alexis from the start. It was so much fun to see what made the cool, calm, collected woman tick and even more fun to see her lose control and let loose a little. And dreamy Logan… the accent, the gentleman, the way he treats Alexis, everything about Logan was perfect.

I picked this book up yesterday afternoon and did not put it down until I was finished last night. I was so engrossed in their story I was shocked to see I had come to the end. I could read about Logan and Alexis, and the rest of the Belles’ couples all day, so I am sad to see this series end. It definitely ended on a high note, saving the best for last. Highly recommend this series, Lauren Layne books, and this book in particular.

Notable Quotes

“I love when he get British,” Josh whispered. He raised his voice back to normal volume. “Hey. Say bloody wanker.”
“I myself prefer bloody hell,” Seth said. “It’s very Bond.”She only knew that going there with Logan, even in her thoughts, meant complicating things. Complicating things meant risk. And she couldn’t risk losing Logan. She wouldn’t.

 Logan. I don’t understand you like this. I don’t get what you want from me.”
He stared into her eyes. “Yes. You do.

“You need to trust this man,” Roxie said. “I know it’s not your thing, I know you like to be in control, but I think it’s time you give up a little control so that you can get something even better in return.”
