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.

Caution: Those who do not like banana bread proceed with caution. There is an overabundance of banana bread references. You have been warned.

Heather is living her dream. She lives in NYC and is an assistant wedding planner. Ok, almost living her dream. She wants to be a full-fledged wedding planner. She just moved into a ridiculously priced new apartment under the dress for the job you want not the job you have mentality. So yeah, she is almost living her dream.

But do we always know what the whole dream is or do we find pieces to obsess over? When Heather meets 4A, she realizes the trouble he represents. She has no need for his brand of trouble and though tons of desire is present- she won't go there.

Until things get complicated, neither knew what they really wanted out of life. Now they are too stubborn to fight for it...or are they?

I loved Heather in book 1, To Have and To Hold,  and was so glad to see the bachelorette workaholic find time for a little something more. A story about a selfish person holding off love in spite of themself and banana bread. the book was totally about banana bread.

Enjoy, you get extra points for eating banana walnut bread while reading. Careful Josh might try and steal it.
