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…



This is the first book in a new series called Heartbreak Hotel, where you go to get over your heartbreak. In this case we meet Lilly who has come with her friend Audra, who was left at the altar. Lilly is very worried about Audra when her locks herself in her room and doesn’t come out. All Lilly can think about was the best man Alec Thatcher, and the near miss with the chemistry between them.
Lilly is unaware that Alec is related to the family who own the resort, and his parents are celebrating 35th wedding anniversary with a weeklong celebration with friends and family.
It was entertaining to watch Lilly and Alec both only wanting a non-serious sexual encounter. Both have reasons not to become serious, but love waits for no one. A sweet and at times funny romance that leaves you with a smile on your face.
A great start to a new series, where the scene was set in a lovely backdrop of the Heartbreak Hotel, and some of the characters that run the place
