Book Description

She vowed to protect her heart…

Andie Shayne believes in forever…for everyone else. She has an up-and-coming wedding planning business, and her own failed engagement, to prove it. Now, all Andie wants is to save the date for Seaglass Celebrations becoming a premier destination wedding resort. And making sure the wedding of the summer goes off without a hitch will get her there - despite the arrival of one unexpected guest.

The sexy-as-sin best man…who’s also the ex who broke Andie’s heart.

Mark Kavanaugh wants to make amends with Andie. He knows breaking off their engagement—at the altar!—was unforgivable. But he’s a wiser man now, vowing to make peace with his past. But with desire reigniting on Turtle Island, Mark realizes he never stopped loving Andie. He wants her; and this time, he’s determined to do it right.

"A solid combination of sexy fun." —Carly Phillips, New York Times bestselling author

"…[Kim Law's] readers will feel every emotion if not by empathy definitely by sympathy for her characters." —Under The Covers Book Blog

About the Author

Kim Law wrote her first story, “The Gigantic Talking Raisin,” in elementary school. Although it was never published, it was enough to whet her appetite for a career in writing. First, however, she would try her hand at a few other passions: baton twirling, softball, and music, to name a few. Voted Bookworm and Most Likely to Succeed in high school, she went on to earn a college degree in mathematics. Law spent years working as a computer programmer and raising her son, and she now devotes her time and energy to writing romance novels (none of which feature talking raisins). She is a past winner of the Romance Writers of America’s Golden Heart Award and currently serves as president for her local RWA chapter. Kim is the author of Caught on Camera and Sugar Springs. A native of Kentucky, she lives with her husband in Middle Tennessee.

1.0 out of 5 stars Do Not Pay for This Serial March 16, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I got sucked into paying for this but don't make the same mistake. It started off with an okay premise, but went downhill fast. It's terrible writing, filled with typos, misspellings, and awful cliches. "Her lady parts tingled at the thought of it" is just one example of the author's lazy, repetitive, and meandering writing. The story really hasn't gone anywhere, and I feel apathetic if another excerpt comes or not. I have never written a review on here, but I'm writing one to say this just isn't worth paying for. Romances can be very well-written, but this one isn't.

2.0 out of 5 stars Fine as long as you leave your brains at the door July 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The title may seem harsh, but then, so is my assessment of the vacillating, ambivalent,ethically challenged hero in this book, as well as the proposition that egregiously hurtful behaviour can, or should be forgiven and forgotten, so long as there is an "explanation" no matter how lame.

So here's the gist of my problem with this book:

I have never been abandoned at the alter. I have never witnessed an abandonment at the alter. But I've got a fairly good imagination, and here's what I think about being abandoned at the alter. It is one of the few cases where the hurt of having a relationship end will almost always be overtaken by the sheer humiliation of being dumped in the most scornful, indecent way, in front of all of your friends. Friends who saved the day, bought gifts, dieted to fit into their dresses, and got up early to drive to the church. Friends who will share in your humiliation, then, depending on how close they are, speak in hushed tones about it for months to come, look at you like someone whose dog died, or gossip meanly behind your back. It is one of those events that you not only have to get over, you've got to live down. For some, its probably a move-to-a-new town level of humiliation.

Now lets add another level of hurt: the person who convinced you they loved you, put a ring on your finger, and promised they'd see you shortly at the church, sends their mean snob of friend to blow you off at the alter, then DOESN'T SPEAK TO YOU FOR FOUR YEARS. Instead, he dates a bunch of other girls, gets engaged, treats the long-time friend to whom he gets engaged like crap until she dumps him(after the wedding has been announced in the society pages, natch). While you remain celibate and lick your wounds, for the duration.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! January 30, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really like the first episode of this serial! I haven't read any other serials but think I am really going to like it! It grabs you and then leaves you thinking 2 weeks is too long to wait for the next episode! I am so curious to see where this story goes!!

Now I have read the second episode and it's as good as the first!!! You try imagine where the story is going to go next but you won't know for sure for 2 weeks(which is a very long time)!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hooked! January 31, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Ex On The Beach has me hooked....I cannot wait for the next installment. The next nine segments are going to drag out and torture us poor readers. Why do I say torture? Kim Law has an exceptional writing gift. She hooks her readers on page one and keeps their attention. Her characters are so well developed that you feel they are your long lost friends. In this case I want to see more of my long lost friends. I highly recommend this serial.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not enjoying Kindle Serial ...I think I like the book February 27, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I do not like the concept of episodes being delivered every TWO weeks, you lose the momentum of the story and lose your connection with the characters. I think I would enjoy this book more had it not been for this delivery method! What's the purpose of doing it this way? I will never buy a kindle serial again! Too bad for this author. This is a real bummer for avid readers!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful!! February 2, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved the first installment of this book and wished there had been more. The setting for the story is great, and the conflict and characters are so strong, that I felt myself holding my breath to see what would happen next. How was Andie going to treat Mark, her ex, the man who stood her up at the alter, alone, humiliated, facing the guests alone. Oh, what a cad, and how delectable he is too! More please!

3.0 out of 5 stars Too long not enough romance! October 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The book took to long to tell the story. They could have finished the book in half the pages. The errors in the book made it seem like it was rushed or not properly edited. I will give the author another read, I just hope the next book has stronger characters.

I must say I'm enjoying the book a lot. I wish the episodes were a lot longer because I'm not a slow reader. I really can't wait to find out all the secrets.
