Exes and weddings don't mix.I'd never been a big fan of weddings. So when my first love, who I hadn't seen in ten years since she cheated on me with and married my best friend, slid into the seat beside me and announced that she was getting a divorce just before the bride walked down the aisle, I took it as a bad omen and almost got up and left. I should have.
I spent the entire wedding fielding questions about my ex being there and how I felt about it. I was going to leave before the first dance but then I saw a woman that made me forget everything, including where I was...so I stuck around.
Heartbreak and alcohol don't mix.I've always loved weddings. So when I showed up unannounced at my grandma's house after finding out my live-in boyfriend, who was also my on-screen husband in the soap opera we both starred in, was a cheating pig and she asked me to be her plus one, I figured it might cheer me up to see true love. I was wrong.
I spent the entire wedding fielding questions about the show and my soon-to-be ex, which is why I may have had one too many cocktails before the first dance. I was about to tell my grandma that I wasn't feeling well and needed to go when I saw a man that made me forget any other men on the planet even existed...I figured one more drink couldn't hurt.

KISSING BEAU by Melanie Shawn
Beau and Sasha’s love story in Kissing Beau by the amazing duo of Melanie Shawn, book twelve in their Wishing Well Texas series makes another perfect match. This series takes the reader to Wishing Well Texas, for one last time, and a visit with Briggs family.
When Beau Briggs attends the wedding for one of his brothers, he finds his first love, the ex he hadn’t seen in ten years since she cheated on him with and married his best friend, slide into the empty seat next to him. Not only that, she announced that she was getting a divorce, just before the bride walked down the aisle. Beau then spent the rest of the wedding answering questions about his ex being there and how he felt about it. Just as he was about to leave he noticed a woman he didn’t know and who made him forget everything, including that he was at a wedding he didn’t want to be at.
Sasha Nelson wasn’t sure where to go after catching her live-in boyfriend, and on-screen husband in the soap they both starred in, was cheating on her. Grabbing a flight to Texas, Sasha showed up unannounced at her grandma’s house, and became her plus one at a wedding that afternoon. Maybe seeing real, true love would cheer her up; nope wrong option.
Being a small town, everyone knew her character and she ended up answering questions about the show and soon-to-be ex. Thinking a few drinks might help ease the heartache, I soon learned was not the case. Suddenly not feeling well and about to leave, Sasha notice a man that made her forget that any other man on the planet existed. One more drink would settle the nerves and give her the confidence to talk to him. Maybe not; especially if it erases my memory of what came next.
After these two accidently catch the bridal bouquet and garter and in the midst of a picture, Sasha climbed Beau to plant a memorable kiss that sent shock waves through the crowd. As Sasha and Beau are forced together by their families and spend time together, they soon discover that love at first sight does exist. T
he chemistry between them is off the charts as is the magnetic attraction they share. When Sasha’s ex comes to town to beg her to forgive him and take him back, all sorts of things go wrong. Hopefully, with the help of the town residents, Beau and Sasha can admit their love for one another.
This story is about discovering what being loved and giving love really is. It’s about caring, being brave and taking that step to open your heart. It’s about the little things you do for another person. It’s about finding your true family. It’s about connecting with the young and the old, with the poor and the rich. It’s also about overcoming past hurts and finding your “safe haven” in another person. I genuinely enjoyed reading Kissing Beau and highly recommend this book as well as the entire series.
