Title: To Love and to Cherish
Series: The Wedding Belles #3
Author: Lauren Layne
Publisher: Pocket Books
Release Date: October 18, 2016
In To Love and to Cherish, USA Today bestselling author Lauren Layne’s third steamy novel in her delightful, hotter-than-Hades new series, the Wedding Belles’ head honcho Alexis Morgan decides she’s ready to let loose. But when a certain sexy accountant volunteers himself for the job, will she risk everything she’s built in the name of lust…or possibly even love?
Alexis has spent the past eight years devoted to turning her tiny start-up into Manhattan’s premier wedding planning company. Now that her business is thriving, it’s time to turn to her much neglected personal life. Alexis approaches her relationships like she does everything else: with a plan. Definitely not part of that plan is Logan Harris, the silent partner in the Wedding Belles and the one person who’s been there for her since the very beginning. Alexis needs someone fun, and Logan is all business, all the time. But when a late night at the office ends with an unexpected kiss, Alexis begins to suspect there’s a hot-blooded man beneath the pinstripes and glasses.
Logan has wanted Alexis since the day they met, but the ambitious wedding planner has always been untouchable. Now Alexis has made it clear that she’s on the dating market—and equally obvious 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 opportunity to show Alexis that there’s more to him than numbers and spreadsheets. As Florida’s sultry days turn into even hotter nights, Logan sets out to convince Alexis that the fling of a lifetime could just maybe turn into forever…
To Love and to Cherish is my favorite book in the Wedding Belles Series. I mean it had Logan Harris for crying out loud. Picture Logan. He's Clark Kent with a British accent. Sigh!
I have liked all the couples in this series but Logan takes the prize for the most romantic. How can he not? He has waited eight years for Alexis to figure out he's more to her than her friend, accountant, and business partner. He had the patience of a saint!
From the first moment Alexis met Logan, he stole my heart. He approached her in a bar and after starting to chat, she tells him about her dream business, the Wedding Belles. He then proposes to help her out. He's ready to give part of his inheritance to help her start it. The catch, he has to be her silent partner.
Fast forward eight years later and Logan has to make a decision, stay and wait for Alexis to notice him or go back to London and take over his family business. Thankfully, there is a lot of people ready to help Alexis realize what she's missing.
I can't tell you how cute this story was. I adore Logan. He was smart, sexy and a sweetheart. Alexis was so different in this book. I'm so used to her being in complete control of her life and her surroundings and here she was indecisive and shy too. Yet, it was easy to like her just because I knew her from before. After all, she helped the others get their true love.
I'm sad to say goodbye to these characters. They were so much fun to be around.

PRAISE FOR THE BOOKS IN THE WEDDING BELLES SERIES:
“I highly recommend For Better or Worse. The second in a series, it can be read as a standalone, but I say start with the first because it’s just as good. They’ve got the funny bickering that I love, and even as her stories have a light touch with cute flirty, they delve deep into the characters.”
—Harlequin Junkie TOP PICK Review (For Better or Worse)
“If you have yet to fall head over heels for one of Lauren Layne’s books, what are you waiting for? She has written some of the most charming and engrossing romance novels of the decade, each of which will leave you with that warm gooey feeling you usually only get after a fresh out of the oven chocolate chip cookie. For Better or Worse is an absolute delight. From the moment the story begins, Josh and Heather have that chemistry that you can always count on from a Lauren Layne book. They bicker, they taunt, and they flirt, each interaction pulling them closer and closer together until their lives are permanently altered by the other, and they aren’t even aware of it yet…Josh and Heather are a beautiful addition to the list of fictional couples that have found happily ever after in Lauren Layne’s books, and we can’t wait to see what she has in store for Alexis Morgan in To Love and to Cherish.”
