EskieMama Reads Review: For Better of Worse by Lauren Layne

For Better or Worse
by Lauren Layne


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.

Review:                                4 1/2 Stars

For Better or Worse was an enjoyable, funny read, just want this reader needed at the time.
I truly loved Heather & Josh’s bantering it had me giggling all through the book. The frenemies storyline just kept you going back for more, because you could just feel the electricity around them fighting their feelings for each other all the way.  There were times I just wanted to go through the book & wring Josh’s neck, but at the end he redeemed himself. I truly loved the ending never expecting it, but my lips are sealed, grab a copy & find out. I had read the novella in The Wedding Belle series From This Day Forward and enjoyed (my first Lauren Layne book), now this reader needs to go back and read Brooke’s story To Have and To Hold, I can not wait to read Alexis’ story that should be a good one. If you are looking for a enjoyable weekend read I recommend you grab a copy of For Better or For Worse, it will have you giggling.

I received a free copy in exchange for my honest review!
