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...
From This Day Forward is a steamy prequel to author Lauren Layne’s The Wedding Belles series. Now that I have had a taste I can’t wait to read the next book!!
This novella is a short introduction to the ladies of the Wedding Belles, an elite New York wedding planning agency. Leah McHale is an up-and-coming wedding photographer offered the assignment that can launch her career. But there is one problem she must face – working with her ex Jason Rhodes. Jason broke Leah’s heart last year and she is just now trying to move on. They both agree to work together and Leah insists on being professional. Being professional is difficult with their reunion stirring up old feelings and sizzling chemistry.
This is my first book from author Lauren Layne and I loved this! The ladies of the Wedding Belles are business partners and supportive friends. I can’t wait to learn more about them. Leah and Jason’s love story was quick but it was filled with emotion. In this quick story I got the full sense of who they were but I wanted more! I hope they are featured in more books in this series.
I highly recommend From This Day Forward to fans of second chance romances. This is perfect read to some romance to your day.
