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 received a review copy from netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

There's not much difference between this book and the first book so for me there's no improvement but it's a descent looking cover.

I didn't think Lauren Layne could improve on the previous book but this one has definitely done it as it was more enjoyable even if it was ever so slightly. I think what made this book slightly better was the humour as this one seemed to be a lot more funnier than the previous book. There was never a dull moment in this book as not only was it funny it also had a very serious subject matter involved which I actually liked that it was tackled more light hearted. The chemistry between the two main characters was smoking hot and I loved their banter. I loved the ending of this book as I felt it ended perfectly for this book and now I'm very excited to start the last book.

I loved every single character in this book with no one that I disliked. Heather was a great female character who held her own throughout. Josh has to be one of my favourite ever male characters as he was so funny and such a scene stealer. What worked even more with this book was the interaction between Heather and Josh as there was plenty of banter and on top of that they where there for one another which was nice to see.

Overall, I loved every minute of this book and there was not one dull moment, bring on the next book is all I can say.
