[Review] For Better or Worse by Lauren Layne

For Better or Worse
By Lauren Layne
Wedding Belles, #2
Release Date: August 30, 2016

In For Better or Worse, the sexy second novel in USA Today bestselling author Lauren Layne’s irresistible new series, an up-and-comer Wedding Belle butts heads with the literal guy next door. Will their brewing tension boil over into something more?

He’s driving her insane . . .

When small-town girl Heather Fowler finally gets promoted from elite Wedding Belles assistant to full-fledged planner, she’s determined to put her best foot forward. Unfortunately, her first celebrity client demands an opulent black-tie affair at the Plaza…in three months. Heather’s days become a flurry of cake tastings, dress fittings, RSVP cards, and bridal tantrums. But what she’s really losing sleep over is the live music blaring from her playboy neighbor’s apartment all night. Heather vows to put this entitled man-child in his place, whether he likes it or not.

But a little crazy might be just what she needs.

Five years ago, Josh Tanner was a young rising star on Wall Street, complete with the penthouse and the migraines. But a grim cancer diagnosis made him realize there’s more to life than the corner office. He kicked the cancer and dedicated his life to following his passions; now, if he could just convince his pretty, workaholic neighbor to let loose, too. Once Heather begins to show him her softer side, Josh is surprised when he starts falling for the sweet, vulnerable woman hiding beneath those power suits. Soon it’s Heather’s turn to convince Josh to take the biggest risk of all: love.

For Better or Worse will have readers engaged from the start, and wedded to the idea of a summer and fall season filled with Wedding Belles!

**4 Stars**
I love Lauren Layne and her books, the Wedding Belle's series is no exception. For Better or Worse is Heather's story and so far it is my absolute favorite.

Heather is currently the assistant wedding planner at Wedding Belle's who is going one day to prove herself worth of a promotion to wedding planner. After growing up with just her mom and never knowing her dad, she set her sights on beginning and wedding planner and moving to New York. Having her list of goals and marking them off as they happened, she was down to finding her own HEA and her promotion. What she didn't realize was that to achieve both, she needed Josh Tanner.

Josh, even though I didn't like her jerky attitude in the beginning, is perfect for Heather. She needed someone to push her buttons to find what she needed in life. He needed her just as much, to realize what he was missing in his life. After receiving a second chance at life, he is afraid to let anyone close, let alone in, but Heather manages to do both.

Josh and Heather's story was sweet. They went into it as friends and came out of it as so much more. They were both afraid of it turning into and ruining it, but it was ruined in the absolute perfect way.

I can't wait for book 3! How could I not be excited for Alexis and Logan's story... Because let's be honest, there is some serious sexual tension there.
