Will a budding wedding planner and her bad boy neighbor stop banging heads and start hearing wedding bells in the sexy second novel in USA TODAY bestselling author Lauren Layne’s irresistible new series that marries Sex and the City with The Wedding Planner?

When small-town girl Heather Fowler finally gets promoted from assistant to actual wedding planner, she’s determined to make it as one of Manhattan’s elite Wedding Belles. Unfortunately, her first client demands an opulent black-tie affair at the Plaza…in five months’ time. Heather’s days quickly 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.

Five years ago, Josh Tanner was an up-and-comer on Wall Street, complete with the penthouse and the migraines. But a grim cancer diagnosis made him realize there is more to life than the corner office. If only he could convince his pretty, workaholic neighbor to let loose, too. As Heather lets down her guard, 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.

I believe all readers have "go to authors" for whatever they are in the mood for at the moment and Lauren Layne is one of those authors for me. She just doesn't write the same type of stories over and over but she comes up with new exciting stories that keep you up way your bedtime. So many exciting characters with different personalities and all the hot guys she writes about has me wanting to jump into every single story.

The Wedding Belles series is quickly becoming one of my favorite series of Laynes. To be honest when I started this series I didn't care for Heather as a main character but I did like her as a secondary one so when I found out she was getting her own book I said I would give her a try and I'm so glad I did. She was funny, driven and smart. She had all these dreams growing up and she stuck it out and is really close to making it all happen which I thought was really awesome.

Josh was Heather's opposite in so many ways. He had it all but after a health scare he gave it up to just do what he wanted and live more. At first with all the women coming and going I wasn't sure I was going to like him as the hero but once he started becoming friends with Heather and spending time with her I began to come around to him and by the end just loved him!

For Better or Worse was exactly what the title is about. It's about no matter what that the other person is there if your sick, sad, happy, or angry. Layne did a really great job at touching on all those emotions and the acceptance of what could happen.

I laughed, teared up and thought this story is one of those stories I'll re-read again in the future more then once to be honest. I'm already looking forward to the next story and truly can't wait! If you haven't met the Wedding Belles yet you are missing out on some kick ass heroines and the sexy men who win them over so pick up or pre- order them all today!
