Review ~ To Love and to Cherish (The Wedding Belles, #3) by Lauren Layne

Goodreads 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 six 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...

My Review :

I discovered Lauren Layne's books more than two years ago and have been loving her books ever since. If you're looking for some light hearted adult romance books, you can go for her books! And if you're looking for some nice romance stories of wedding planners in a big city, this is definitely a series you should go for! 

Now you get a little snippets of these two in previous books so I was very excited to read this. In fact I was excited for this book the most out of all in this series. But sadly I wasn't very impressed with the story. But having said that, it was still quite enjoyable. I love everything about this series right from the covers to the characters to the writing. Did I enjoy this book the most in the series, no it was Heather and Josh's book, I can't recommend that book enough but I still liked reading this and had quite fun see Alexis and Logan getting together.

Alexis Morgan is the boss lady of these little wedding planners group, she works very hard and is the main reason for the success of The Wedding Belles (their company). She dedicated whole her life to build her business because Wedding Belles is like a safe haven for her and she will always have that but living the real life was always hard for her. But now she suddenly finds herself lonely and is tired of all the work and no fun. So she decides to go out a little, date and live for the first time after so long.

Then there's Logan. Smart and hot accountant originally from England moved to New York leaving his family business when he was young. Logan has been feeling things for Alexis for over 8 years since they first met. He always has her back and she has his. Logan is a silent partner in the Wedding Belles and is a really patient guy. I really liked him for most part of the book but then I got irritated with when he suddenly started acting possessive and impatient. I found his behaviour wee bit out of character. But thankfully it was a very small percentage of book where he behaves in that way and you kind of get it too why he is being impatient. It frustrates him that Alexis is taking so much time to notice him and the chemistry in the air when they are together. Personally I found that little frustrating too but I found Logan's behaviour equally frustrating at that time. Aside from that I liked everything in this book, their romance, the way he always helps her, whether its when she is facing her family or in the work. Logan is boyfriend goals to be honest.

This week's topic is an Audio Freebie.

Its Audio Freebie today so I am going to go with Top Ten Bands or Singers

1. Adele :


I will be honest with you, I started listening to Adele when her Hello song came out and I am just in love with her songs and her personality now. Send My Love is one of my favourites.
                       
                       
2. Imagine Dragons :  

Love them. I feel like their songs are so from the heart and the videos are attractive and so minimalist. It just captures your attention. Radioactive and I Bet My Life are my favourite songs. But who am I kidding? I love them all.


3. Taylor Swift :

I used to listen to her songs and like them, but when I really started loving her songs was after her 1989 album. Love Style song from 1989 album.



4. Mumford and Sons : 

You have to listen to them if you haven't. Because they have a lot of great songs. I just love that they have a banjo playing in their songs. Little Lion Man is my favourite song from them.


5. Ed Sheeren :

I feel like I don't even have to write anything for this description. I mean the lyrics of all the songs, music and his voice. Its all a perfect combination. And if you haven't heard him, You're living under a rock because you're missing out. Go check him out now!! I love all of his songs.


6. Coldplay :

I LOVE Chris Martin. His voice is amazing. I love all of their songs. I just feel like he's a happy go lucky person, with all the always smiling thing and all. Just love that. The lyrics of their songs are beautiful. My favourite song, hmm, its hard to choose one but I'll go with Sky Full of Stars.


7. Chainsmokers :


I heard Roses and now I can't stop listening to their songs. I like almost all of their songs. They have good new feature singers in their songs.


8. One Direction :

I noticed them properly after Zayn left. Because it was this big thing in the news and all. I had listened to their songs before but never paid much attention to them. But after the news, I started to listen properly and I love all their old and new songs. Perfect and History being my favourites out of all.



9. The Vamps, 5SOS, Little Mix:

All three of them are young bands. The Vamps are similar to One Direction, Somebody to you being my favourite. 5 seconds of Summer has some good pop songs. Little Mix is also starting out good now. I love their Hair and Secret Love Song songs.


10. Maroon 5 :

I know Adam Levine looks divine and I like their songs because of the music. They have good catchy songs. Payphone is my favourite song from Maroon 5. 


So there you go. That is my top ten band list.

Goodreads Summary-

New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh takes us into a dangerous and exhilarating world where a deadly, beautiful archangel and his once-mortal consort are caught in a fury of twisted darkness…

One of the most vicious archangels in the world has disappeared. No one knows if Lijuan is dead or has chosen to Sleep the long sleep of an immortal. But with her lands falling into chaos under a rising tide of vampiric bloodlust, a mysterious and ancient order of angels known as the Luminata calls the entire Cadre together to discuss the fate of her territory.

Accompanying her archangelic lover Raphael to the Luminata compound, guild hunter-turned-angel Elena senses that all is not as it seems. Secrets echo from within the stone walls of the compound, and the deeper Elena goes, the uglier the darkness. But neither Raphael nor Elena is ready for the brutal truths hidden within—truths that will change everything Elena thinks she knows about who she is…

Nothing will ever be the same again.

My Review :

I was just surfing through Netgalley titles and randomly came across this book and I am so glad that I requested it and got accepted for it because I loved reading this book! 

Its description was kinda making me feel like its maybe not going to be my kind of book, but romance and paranormal are my kind of genre, so I dived in. After reading the first page I got a little weird vibe from Lydon and I think that's what the author was aiming at. But then it picked on and I loved him! 

Kalila, is our heroine, she has these nightmares which come to life. She knows that its not normal and all she wants is a normal life. But she is a dreamcaster and Lydon, our hero, has been sent to capture her. 

Lydon is a V’alkara. They feed on dreams and he plans to gain freedom by gaining this dreamcaster's trust. But he can't let anyone harm Kalila, who awakes these feelings inside him, he never thought existed. 

Kalila is a very strong, stubborn, feisty and sassy character. She will fight fiercely for freedom. and she must trust Lydon for that and he ends up becoming her ally. Whereas their banter was fun to read, it was a little difficult for me to not get frustrated when they were being stubborn. But they grow on you. Give them a little time and you end up adoring them.

I really like the world C.J. Burright created. I loved the writing style. But I am giving it 4 stars because I had to reread few chapters to understand what is actually happening. It was a little complicated in middle but then the story progresses and then I felt like I was on track. Having said that, I really liked this story and I can't wait to dive into the second book because that epilogue has me on the edge of my seat!
