Review: For Better or Worse

Book Review: For Better or Worse, by Lauren Layne

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.

Genre: contemporary romance

Publishing date: August 2016

Mature content: yes

Review: For Better or Worse is book 2 in the Wedding Belles series and, in my opinion, a great improvement over book 1 (read my review of To Have and to Hold here). The story makes sense, the characters are consistent and in addition to the sizzling romance, there are lots of very funny scenes. It's a book written to brighten your day, and it totally delivers.

My only complaint is the way the story ends. The end looks rushed and, frankly, a bit unrealistic. Yes, it's the happily ever after you would be expecting, but it still feels a bit weird. And that is the only reason why I'm rating it with four stars and not with five.

Happy readings,
