To Have and to Hold (The Wedding Belles #1) by Lauren Layne

To Have and to Hold (The Wedding Belles, #1)Discovering her fiance is an international con man just moments before they exchange vows devastates celebrity wedding planner Brooke Baldwin’s business—and breaks her heart. Now a pariah in Los Angeles, she seeks a fresh start in New York City and thinks she’s found it with her first bridal client, a sweet—if slightly spoiled—hotel heiress. Then she meets the uptight businessman who’s holding the purse strings.

Seth Tyler wishes he could write a blank check and be done with his sister Maya’s fancy-pants wedding. Unfortunately, micromanaging the event is his only chance at proving Maya’s fiance is a liar. Standing directly in his way is the stunning blonde wedding planner whose practiced smiles and sassy comebacks both irritate and arouse him. He needs Brooke’s help. But can he persuade a wedding planner on a comeback mission to unplan a wedding? And more importantly, how will he convince her that the wedding she should be planning… is theirs?

Trope: Weddings!

Chemistry: Low Boil

One-Sentence Summary: Cynical millionaire meets romantic wedding planner.

Review: Lauren Layne is back with another scorching series, this time based in the world of wedding planners. This was a slick romance with the wedding planner going head-to-head with the cynical brother of the bride.

I am always of romances that start with the couple being hit with a barrage of instalove the minute they set eyes on each other but I quite enjoyed how this one played out in the end.

However, I was probably more intrigued with the idea of Grant/Maya than with Seth/Brooke and I really wish that Grant/Maya were given proper secondary romance status and that we got to see them actually get together.
