+ book summary

Sex and the City meets The Wedding Planner in The Wedding Belles, a contemporary and witty romance series about three high-powered New York City women who can plan any wedding—but their own.

Alexis Morgan has spent the past eight years devoted to turning her tiny start-up into Manhattan’s premiere wedding planning company, The Wedding Belles. Now that her business is thriving, it’s time to turn towards her much neglected personal life, and Alexis approaches her relationships like she does everything else: with a plan. Not a part of that plan is Logan Harris, the silent partner in the Belles, and the one person who’s been there for her since the very beginning. But Alexis needs someone fun, and Logan’s all business, all the time—except when a late night at the office ends with an unexpected kiss that leaves the usually cool and together Alexis reeling.

Logan has lusted after Alexis since the day he walked into the tiny Harlem apartment that used to double as her office. But the ambitious wedding planner has always been untouchable...until now. Alexis has made it clear that she’s on the dating market—and equally clear that he’s not in the running. But when Alexis finds herself in need of a date for her sister’s last minute wedding in Florida, Logan knows it’s the perfect time to show Alexis that there’s more to him than numbers and spreadsheets—and beneath the pinstripes and glasses lies a hot-blooded heartthrob. As Florida’s sultry days turn into even hotter nights, Logan’s out to convince Alexis that the fling of a lifetime could just maybe turn into forever...

+ excerpt

“Well, I’ll let you two get to it,” Logan said with a slight smile, stepping aside so that Todd could enter.

Alexis felt panic claw at her throat. This was a mistake. The thought of Logan walking out of her life so that a stranger could walk into it . . .

Calm down—it’s just one date.

“Bye, Logan,” she blurted out, taking an unintentional step forward as he stepped onto the porch.

He turned back and she saw understanding in those brown eyes, as though he could see right through her.

“Alexis,” he said with a perfunctory nod. Then he stepped back toward her, bending his head and softly kissing her cheek.

From the outside, it would seem like a formal good-bye from a formal Brit, but he lingered just for a second.

“Don’t be nervous,” he whispered directly in her ear. “You look beautiful.”

Beautiful. Not nice. Beautiful.

Logan stepped back, nodded politely to Todd, and then walked away, leaving Alexis with the strangest urge to call him back, to ask him to stay.

“I’m really looking forward to our dinner,” Todd said politely.

“Me, too,” she said automatically, gathering her purse and her keys giving her brightest, glossiest fakest smile.

But her eyes were locked on Logan’s retreating back as she said it.
