I chose this title because I have always enjoyed the narrator, Natalie Ross and it was relatively inexpensive with my member discount. What a wonderful surprise! I have a new author to explore all of her other works. Kim Law has written an intelligent, charming, funny, and moving story about Andi and Mark set in a fictional place I wish was real, Turtle Island. I want to live there too!
This story moves the two main characters past something that seems impossible to get past, but she does so believably. Perhaps it was that I related a lot to the main character or at least how she handles conflict, but I really felt it was realistic (something you don't always find in a romance novel).
This book had me laughing out loud at times, holding my breath during a few pretty steamy scenes and ultimately sighing with contentment.
Great book, highly recommend it! Looking forward to checking out the next book in the series as well as the author's earlier series!

What did you love best about Ex on the Beach?
I thought both Andi and Mark were very believable characters - flaws and all. I enjoyed seeing them work through their thoughts and coming to realize how each had failed the other and realizing that they loved the other despite it all. Kim Law was excellent at depicting the pain both Mark and Andi carried from the ending of their first relationship, and of course the love scenes were hot! I also liked that there were other secondary stories -- Andi's relationship with her mother, the secret of the rift between Andi's mother and her Aunt Ginny, the Bride to be and the dirtbag groom to be -- all gave depth and dimension to the overall story. Natalie Ross's narration is just wonderful. I actually found this book because I was looking for books narrated by Ms. Ross (after having finished the Off the Record series).
What other book might you compare Ex on the Beach to and why?
This was one of the first reunion books I've ever read, so I can't think of similar story lines, but because of the narration, I did continue to think of Off the Record, On the Record and For the Record.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Absolutely! I couldn't stop until the end!
Any additional comments?
I will continue to look for books by Kim Law because I enjoy the many layers to her writing. I think her characters are complex and well crafted.

Loved it you get so invested in the people in this book the way it's written you feel like you know them
I struggled and struggled and eventually just couldn't. Too predictable, too overworked, and the premise of him having left her at the alter... just dnf!
