From This Day Forward has so much feels and hotness in every page!
Sex and the City meets The Wedding Planner in this prequel to USA TODAY bestselling author Lauren Layne’s The Wedding Belles series about three high-powered New York City women who can plan any wedding—but their own.
Up-and-coming wedding photographer Leah McHale’s career is on the rise–thanks in no small part to the Wedding Belles, the elite New York wedding planning agency that always throws top-tier business Leah’s way. So when one of the Belles asks Leah to fill in at the former First Daughter’s wedding, Leah is overjoyed to say yes–until she finds out who she’ll be working with.
Jason Rhodes is the one man who was able to capture Leah’s heart and, once he had it, promptly stepped all over it and left her broken. Now he’s working side-by-side with her at the biggest wedding of the season and Leah is determined to give him the cold shoulder. Despite his persistence, she is not going to fall for his charming, impish ways again. Not even if he still has that killer, irresistible smile…
I’ve never read anything Lauren Layne before and it’s a curse and a blessing all at once. A curse since one book down and I’m already screaming for more and blessing because it’s been my dream to read a romance series about wedding planners. She made it come true with this series starter.
Jason Rhodes and Leah McHale had a hot thing in the past that did not end well. Present day, they’re forced to work together as both photographers for the former president’s daughter’s grand wedding. However, there’s nothing forced about their feelings for each other even after a year. If only things this time were easier.
I love a good and sexy second-chance romance! And this one fits the bill! And when I say quick, it doesn’t mean it has no development in any aspect at all. Because it has. Though am not a fan of the main theme of the story, it was still pretty nice considering the pacing of events and progress of the characters. It may sting a bit at first because of Jason’s past (but there’s no cheating scenes involved, promise) but it enhanced Leah’s character as a firm HEA believer.
Also worth considering: a lot of really steamy scenes!!! Like… REAL. HOT!
It’s pretty short since it’s a novella but I still enjoyed the story a lot and I am so excited to read the next books in the series! Grab a copy if you need a pleasant, quick read that would bring a smile to your face after reading it.
