Publisher's Summary

As the brains behind wedding site TyingTheKnot.com, Callie sees it all: from the ring to the dress, the smiles… to the tears. It's that last part that keeps her single and not looking. Getting left at the altar will do that to a girl. But when Callie returns to her old hometown, she finds that her sweet high school crush is sexier than ever. And he makes it hard to remember why she's sworn off love…

Tanner is a deep-sea diver with a wild, adrenaline-junkie past-and now his teenage son is back in his life. How can Tanner be a role model when he's still paying for his own mistakes? It's hard enough that gorgeous Callie has appeared in town like a beautiful dream, challenging his best-laid plans to keep his heart on lockdown. Though there's something about being around her again that makes him feel like he can be the man she - and his son - deserve. Little Lucky Harbor holds their past; can it hold a beautiful new future?

If you want a good story

This is an a good plot line with expected twists and yet humorous sidelines. It will make you laugh and cry for all the different characters and you might even relate to one or two of them.

Great story by a great author!

This was the first book in this series that I’ve read. Obviously it can be read as a stand-alone. I now want to read the other books.

This one was sweet and funny. Callie comes back to her home town to check on her grandmother and runs into her high school crush. No matter how much you have changed there is something about going back to your childhood home that makes you feel like a teenager again.

Tanner left town so that he could support his family. He moved back to start a charter business with his friends and provide a stable home for his son. His son is the typical teenager, but he has a sweet side too.

I loved the small town and how nothing stays a secret for long.

New author for me, won't be last time I read!

This was my first book by this author, and while I had some issues with it, I definitely enjoyed it enough that I am going to want to read more. Sometimes I have trouble listening to books that are in third person, especially romance, I kind of like the first person better. I think I'd have liked this even better with two narrators, one for the male and one for the female parts. Not that the narrator was bad, I just think the book might have been better. But I guess when it is in third person, you don't always need the two people to read. Some of the sexy parts were a little cringe-worthy for me, I guess just compared to the really steamy stuff I usually read. I did totally get what the main character mentioned about always feeling like a third wheel, with parents, etc. Because that's totally my life!

Towards the end, the really final issue, I was a little mad that she didn't give him a chance to explain, because she knew he had a son, and should have at least thought that was a possibility. And then, I feel like his proposal was a little soon, but okay. Again, my steamy romances may give me a little more time with that? I did get the friends bit, really is similar to the short story I'm working on.

Terrible narrator! (and, I LOVE all of these books

The narration was so bad I had to return the book:(. I love all of Shalvis' books so was very disappointed that I couldn't get through Chapter 5.

I could have written this third one

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I could have written this third one in the series, it was just a repeat of the first two, same story line, same dialog.Hope there is not a 4th, I could not take it.
