Series: Wedding Belles #3
Author: Lauren Layne
Release date: October 18, 2016
Main characters: Alexis Morgan, (owner of Wedding Belles and the tricky heroine of the story) Logan Harris, Alexis’s silent partner, accountant and the man convinced she should be his.
Blurb: Alexis Morgan has devoted eight years to turning her tiny start-up into Manhattan’s premier wedding-planning company. Now it’s time to come up with a plan to tackle her personal life. Definitely not part of that plan is her silent business partner in the Wedding Belles, Logan Harris. But when a late night at the office ends with an unexpected kiss, Alexis begins to suspect there’s more to Logan than just pinstripes and glasses.
Logan has wanted Alexis since they met and, when Alexis needs a date for her sister’s last-minute wedding in Florida, Logan sees the perfect opportunity to show her what she’s been missing. 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…
Why you should read it: If you’ve been following the Wedding Belles series, then you’ll want to check this one out. It’s the final book in the series and focuses on Alexis and Logan – whose friendship has drawn plenty of speculation from the other characters since book one. We get to know a what makes Alexis tick and who Logan is beyond being her English accountant. The chemistry works between the pair, but their HEA is a long time coming.
What you may struggle with: One word: Alexis. I have to be honest, I’m getting a bit tired and exasperated by heroines like Alexis. The ones who have had disappointments in love before (but nothing truly traumatic) yet are completely incapable of trusting a man again. For goodness sake – get a grip! Stuff happens. Alexis’s inner monologue was exhausting at times, plus she was truly clueless despite Logan being very clear about his intentions! Grrrrrr! Sometimes the need to create drama in order to furnish an entertaining story can be so irritating.
Rating: 3/5 – I was entertained and the scorch factor was hot, hot hot – but this wasn’t my favourite story in the series by a long shot.
