Review

"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.

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.

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.

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)!!

Yes, do leave your brains at the door. The premise of this story is painful - she was left at the alter. As you plow through the story, you can only wonder what the guy saw in the girl. Try as I might, I couldn't like her. She was wishy-washy, bitchy, and selfish. For someone who graduated from Harvard with an MBA, she made some stupid decisions. I couldn't get behind her at all. And the guy... I know from experience that a pushy guy is always a pushy guy. You can't fix that. Let's not try to turn that character flaw into a plus and deceive the impressionable readers out there. Avoid this book.

Hmmm. I'd read Kim Law's other work, Caught On Camera, and had hoped for something along the same lines. Unfortunately, I wasn't feeling it for this book. Great premise but things felt very complicated and rushed, as if the characters hadn't had time to grow into themselves. I finished after several interruptions (where I read other books) but not rushing out for other books by Ms. Law. Wish I could be more positive!

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.

Andie Shayne is a young woman from Chicago, who four years ago, after emotional and job related catastrophes, gave up the big city to live with her Aunt Ginnie on Turtle Island. Ginnie has turned her home into a bed and breakfast/destination wedding site called Seaglass Celebrations, and is starting to get some wonderful feedback from guests. They are getting ready for an over the top affair, with two very upper crust families being joined in marriage, and two weeks of festivities to start off the celebration. Andie is very stressed about this wedding, as it will make or break their business.

Mark Kavanaugh is the man responsible for Andies emotional catastrophe. He left her standing at the alter, with his best man passing on the news he wasn't coming. Four years have past, he is on Turtle Island for the wedding festivities of his friends, and he's the best man. Mark had actually suggested Seaglass Celebrations as a go to site. Now he's here hoping to get a chance to speak to Andie, and try to explain his thoughtless breaking of her heart.

This was a very enjoyable sweet love story. It has lots of twists and turns, and even a mystery is solved. I would recommend this book for a great beach read, and for readers who enjoy love stories.

I waited for all the episodes to be loaded on my Kindle before reading this novel. I can't imaging waiting two weeks for another episode. That being said, I felt like the writing was a little "wordy" in parts, I assume to catch up readers to each episode. For me, it made it a slow read in spots.

That being said, I really enjoyed this story. It is my own personal opinion that I am not a fan of Serial Novels, and will avoid buying another. I'm sure some readers would greatly enjoy this type of novel. I am looking forward to reading Ms. Law's newest novel being published in September.
