When hate turns to love, the Marine and the wedding planner find their happy ever after.
Edward McAllister, wedding planner extraordinaire, arrives at Sapphire Cay for a wedding. He has four days to go until the big day, but his careful plans are foiled when he spots someone destroying the stage he was setting. It doesn’t matter that the guy pulling down the old pavilion and digging trenches is hot – he’s messing with Edward’s OCD, and Edward isn’t afraid to let the sexy Marine know precisely how he feels.
Forced out of the military after he was injured, Jamie Durand returns to the place he once called home to recuperate and rethink his life. With every one of his dreams shattered, he can’t see a way out, but when the hotel’s prissy wedding planner dislikes him at first sight, Jamie makes it his mission to get the man to like him. Only like turns to lust, and with that, love is never far away.

Like the first book Follow The Sun, this story is sweet and gentle without too much drama. There are some misunderstandings as both men read each other incorrectly and make assumptions obviously based on their past experiences (stereotyping for both of them) but largely the story focuses on the slow development of the relationship.
Edward is a wedding planner who arranges a lot of weddings on the island. He comes to the island for a week to arrange a wedding where he meets Jamie. Jamie has completed two tours in Afghanistan and been injured. He has returned to the island, where he was raised, to spend some time to himself so that he can sort out what he wants to do with the rest of his life.
It's lovely to see the Lucas and Dylan from the first book make appearances. They are supportive, such as the advise offered by Dylan "Just promise me one thing." He looked at Jamie and pointed toward his chest. "Trust this, yeah? And follow your heart." His eyes brightened. "Lucas taught me that."
Follow his heart. Jamie nodded. He could do that.
and of course he does so we get a wonderful happy ending!
So anyway, this was a sweet love story about two very different men. OCD wedding planner Edward, and damaged Marine Jamie. They meet, sparks fly in a bad way, then in a good way, sex is had, and we assume they get their happily ever after. It wasn't particulary deep or angsty, Jamie has issues but they are glossed over somewhat. Which is fine. It was a light fun read, set in a lovely place. I liked the first Sapphire Cay book, and I liked this one very much.
Not much more. But it was a fairly good read, if not entirely satisfying.
