Welcome to the famed resort, The Hathaway at Dragonfly Beach, where newlyweds come to honeymoon, where anniversary couples celebrate milestones, and where broken hearts find a place to heal.
After her best friend is jilted at the altar, maid of honor Lilly Durand whisks the bride to Dragonfly Beach and its legendary hotel, determined to help her overcome her misery. Lilly won’t admit it, but she’s hurting too. During the few days of pre-wedding festivities, a powerful attraction had grown between her and the handsome and confident best man, Alec Thatcher. Now she’ll never see him again, but she’s decided to consider that a good thing. This way her inconvenient crush can’t turn into something so dangerous as love. But then, to her dismay, she discovers Alec is just a room key away at what some call the Heartbreak Hotel.
Alec Thatcher doesn’t have the time or inclination for long-term romance. Serial dating has suited his confirmed-bachelor status just fine—until he meets Lilly Durand and his world turns on its axis. She claims to be as relationship-averse as he, but when the two of them are together he can’t recall his own reasons against commitment. Though Lilly touches his heart and soul, she’s as cautious as she is sexy. With a stubborn streak a mile long, Alec will have to exert all his powers of persuasion to give Lilly her last first kiss...
Love this new series.
I love this new Christie Ridgway book. Two girls with broken hearts for very different reasons end up at a famed lodge in Santa Barbara, CA. Lilly is the bridesmaid who brings the jilted bride there to heal. Lilly gets more than she bargained for when she runs into Alec, the best man. Can Alec warm Lilly’s heart? Christie Ridgway writes passion filled and unique stories. A must read.
I absolutely loved this book. Lilly and Alec are best man and maid of honor at the wedding that never happened. Lilly is an orphan that was raised neglect fully by her aunt and uncle and doesn’t want love. Alec is a man with some sadness in his past that is keeping him from moving on and falling in loved. The two of them together are amazing! I love how he calls her Sugar, for some reason I feel like it comes out with a southern accent even though they are from LA. Great read another amazing book by Christie
