From This Day Forward
The Wedding Belles #0.5
By: Lauren Layne
Releasing June 6, 2016
Sex and the City meets The Wedding Planner in this prequel to USA TODAY bestselling author Lauren Layne’s The Wedding Belles series about three high-powered New York City women who can plan any wedding—but their own.
Up-and-coming wedding photographer Leah McHale’s career is on the rise–thanks in no small part to the Wedding Belles, the elite New York wedding planning agency that always throws top-tier business Leah’s way. So when one of the Belles asks Leah to fill in at the former First Daughter’s wedding, Leah is overjoyed to say yes–until she finds out who she’ll be working with.
Jason Rhodes is the one man who was able to capture Leah’s heart and, once he had it, promptly stepped all over it and left her broken. Now he’s working side-by-side with her at the biggest wedding of the season and Leah is determined to give him the cold shoulder. Despite his persistence, she is not going to fall for his charming, impish ways again. Not even if he still has that killer, irresistible smile…
Excellent introduction to the Wedding Belles! The Wedding Belles is a series about three ambitious wedding planners, so one would think we’d just get journey’s to HEA for our ladies, but noooooooo, this little novella starts off this wonderful series with Leah McHale, a wedding photographer the Belles use from time to time.
This story is a novella, so it is going to be short and quick. And the story line is perfect for this. Because this is a story of second chances. Our couple has already done the getting to know you part AND their history was never really resolved, so feelings are still simmering on the surface … Back in the day, something happened (you know you have to read the book for more that that lol) and Leah McHale and Jason Rhodes stopped having a relationship. But nothing was ever talked about our resolved. Leah wouldn’t have it. She cut Jason out of her life with nothing more than a bye. Jason has a lot to say. A lot to explain. And he finally gets his chance … 🙂
Some of you might think that things feel a bit rushed for Leah and Jason’s story, but something tells me we’ll be seeing them cameo in future books 🙂
