Review: From This Day Forward by Lauren Layne

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...

Kristine's Thoughts:

I have read a lot of Lauren Layne's books and I tend to read them before or as soon as they are released. Unfortunately I am a little behind in my reading and dropped the ball on her new series. From This Day Forward is 0.5 in The Wedding Belles series.

I am a fan of Layne's writing and always have been. She pens some of the most quirky and likeable characters of this genre. Needless to say, I wasn't at all surprised that I liked this novella. At only 100 pages the story moved quickly and it didn't take long for those pages to start burning up. Yes, it was somewhat predictable but I liked Leah and Jason enough that it didn't matter.

It's always difficult to write my thoughts on a novella because I don't want to give anything away. I will say that this sneak peak at the series tells me that it is going to be as fun and enjoyable as all of the others I have read thus far. I can always count on Lauren Layne to satisfy my romance itch.
