For Better or Worse by Lauren Layne



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.

I’m a sucker for happy endings and this story delivers. We get the grand realization and dash to the airport to proclaim love and upcoming weddings.

I get that Josh has had a rough go and he believes at any minute he can die, so therefore he has to live like this is his last day. Unfortunately, half the time it makes you hate his guts with a passion. He’s inconsiderate and a huge jerk like 95% of the time; in the end his redemption come from the growth vision he has, which by the way I will totally attribute to his sister, Jamie.

Heather, was a bit / extremely a pushover when it came to Josh. You have this professional, hard working girl that turns into pudding at the mere touch of this guy. 

The characters had some serious flaws and don't come across as your traditional hero and heroine, that are always perfect and everything is rainbows and sunshine. These characters have so many flaws yet they work to give us an engaging and dramatic story.

Oh one more flaw that Josh has, banana bread, who call this their favorite. Nope, chocolate or nada.
