It’s about bloody time Logan and Alexis got it together and made their own HEA. And, yes, I know that there were only two books and a novella in the series, but it felt like it took forever and I suppose it did in a way since it took eight years. But, the wait was totally worth it! I was hooked from the start (The prologue was totally worthy of being in a movie as a meet cute between the characters) and finished it what would have been one sitting if that work thing hadn’t gotten in the way.
Logan. Yummy, sexy Brit who was waaaayyy too patient for his own good. I swear the man should have the phrase “patience of a saint” tattooed somewhere on his oh so lickable body. I waffled between thinking he was the most romantic fool ever or just a fool, but he knew what he wanted and bided his time. He was sweet, smart and dead sexy in a laid back kind of way, even when he went into alpha mode.
Alexis. Stubborn, driven and just a wee bit of a control freak. Okay, a lot, but I can’t fault the woman. She knew what she wanted to do at a young age and went for it. Unfortunately, her tunnel vision came back and kicked her in the arse. I spent an equal amount of time empathizing with Alexis and wanting to smack some sense into her. I understood her need for self preservation and sticking with the status quo, but I felt she was short changing herself by not being the woman she was truly meant to be. Luckily enough she had people who cared enough to help open her eyes to what she could have if only she stepped outside her comfort zone.
I have to admit that their push/pull of a journey drove me batshit crazy. I understood why they were both scared to rock the boat and treaded lightly, but it got to the point where even I almost threw the towel in. That didn’t happen and it had a lot to do with Seth, Brooke, Josh, Heather, Jessie and their families. I loved how they all banded together, some on purpose, others not so much, to help Logan and Alexis out and I found it interesting and amusing where they all tended to throw their support to. Their journey wasn’t an easy one, but the ending was definitely worth it!
I know that this is the last book of the series, but I’m crossing my toes that Jessie gets an HEA of her own one of these days because she really deserves it. But other than that, I’ve enjoyed the series and liked how everything has ended up.

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...
