Sex and the City meets The Wedding Planner in The Wedding Belles, a contemporary and witty romance series about three high-powered New York City women who can plan any wedding—but their own.
Alexis Morgan has spent the past eight 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...


Finally!!!! Alexis and Logan’s book. I’ve been waiting for this one since we first heard of their friendship in the first book. And it did not disappoint.

I absolutely love Logan. His patience and determination are something to be admired. He knows how to handle Alexis, and doesn’t want to push her too far. I do think maybe he should have shown how interested he was sooner, but I’m okay with how things played out.

And Alexis… She’s dealt with some pretty crappy things. Those things have shaped her into the person she is. She’s successful, smart, and one hell of a business owner. But she doesn’t allow herself to have fun, or get close to people. And that breaks my heart for her.

The way Logan and Alexis interact is amazing. They know each other so well, but don’t know each other at the same time. You can’t deny the spark they have, though. I love seeing them in the same spaces together.

You don’t have to have read the previous books in the series to enjoy this one. But I suggest you do. They have little bits of them in there, but it also adds more to the story.
