To Have and To Hold is a new novel by Lauren Layne. Brook is a wedding planner new to NYC after her con man ex fiancé got arrested at the alter. Her first client at her new employment is Maya Tyler who is engaged after only dating fiancé Neil for three months. Brooke is hoping to start her career in New York of with a wonder wedding but what she doesn’t bargain for is Maya’s controlling but extremely hot and wealthy older brother, Seth, who distrusts Neil and is falling for Brooke.
I thought this book was very well written. The characters were well developed and were very likable, most of the time at least. At first Seth seems like a controlling jerk but the you see the insecurities hiding beneath the surface. I got hooked from the beginning and soon didn’t want to put it down. Seth and Brooke were both badly wounded by their previous relationships and I found myself rooting for them. Lauren Layne did a wonderful job making these characters not only likable bit easy to relate to. This book quickly became one of my favorites.
I received a free copy of this from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
