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…

From This Day Forward was a short and sweet way to start off The Wedding Belles series. It was a classic LL contemporary romance filled with fun characters. I really enjoyed reading this second chance romance and getting a glimpse of what’s to come in this new series.
My only complaint about From This Day Forward is that I wish it had been a full length novel instead of a novella. I loved the characters and would have liked to have seen their entire romance unfold. But the fact that I want more just shows how great a writer LL is.
