THE BEACH WEDDING is the first book in the fun and romantic "Married in Malibu" series -- a spin-off of Lucy Kevin's New York Times bestselling "Four Weddings and a Fiasco" series. Lucy Kevin is the "sweet" pen-name of New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Bella Andre (who writes the #1 bestselling series about The Sullivans). Lucy Kevin books are fun, flirty and romantic?without the steamy scenes.

BOOK DESCRIPTION: Liz Wilkinson has finally landed her dream job overseeing Married in Malibu, a new wedding venue for the Hollywood elite that promises perfect, paparazzi-free happily ever afters. She vows to do whatever it takes to put the new company on the map. Even if it means working with her ex-fiancé...and pretending to be in love with him again, too!

As a bestselling thriller writer, Jason Lomax writes plot twists for a living. But he never could have imagined needing his ex-fiancée's help to arrange a secret beach wedding for his famous niece. Nor did he ever expect to fall even more in love with Liz the second time around.

When their fake dates?and kisses?become breathlessly, wonderfully real, will Jason be able to convince Liz that neither of them is pretending anymore? And that the love they once felt for each other never actually went away...

I had planned on just reading a chapter before bedtime. They next thing I knew, I had reached the end. But I didn't want it to end. The only way that happens for me is if the book flows well, has great characters, and a plot that not only makes sense but develops throughout the story. Liz Wilkinson has been hired to run the new wedding venue in Malibu. She hires talented people that not only complement the business but they add to the story. With weeks still to go before the grand opening, her past knocks on her door. Her ex-fiancee, Jason's niece needs a new secret venue before she looses it. Watching them pull off a fancy wedding in two weeks was awe inspiring. The only problem--Liz and Jason will have to work closely to pull it off. Liz and Jason will have to "pretend" to be the couple to through off the press. Liz and Jason will have to deal with the past. There isn't a lot of HOT in The Beach Wedding but there is a lot of sweet. It is a very believable cute book. There wasn't too little. There wasn't too much. It was just right.

Omg! I couldn't put this book down, nearly burnt dinner lol. Liz and Jason were so madly in love, but they were giving everything up to be together.. Liz knew she had to let him go, so he could follow his dreams of becoming a writer.. 10 years later and not a day has gone by without thinking of him, the only way she can cope is to throw herself into her work. Liz and her team must work hard to open the wedding planning business on time, only fate has thrown a spanner in the works. And in walks Jason, wanting her to plan a high profile wedding for his niece and she only has two weeks to do it.. Their chemistry is off the charts, I love their story so much!!

This is a spin off series of Four Weddings and a Fiasco. Liz Wilkinson has her dream job and is determined to make Married in Malibu a success. She has her perfect team in place and is confident it will be a success. Now she needs her first wedding. Her first wedding comes along in none other than her ex fiancé asking for Liz to handle his niece's wedding in 2 weeks. Sparks instantly fly between Liz and Jason while planning Amber's wedding. Loved reading how the wedding was pulled off perfectly and how old loves find each other. Lucy Kevin never disappoints.

Liz and Jason's relationship ended abruptly 10 years ago. Helping Amber plan her dream wedding was one of the reasons Jason sought Married In Malibu out. Seeing Liz again after all those years brought out the trapped emotions from within. Despite being the successful writer that he is, Jason could never go past not knowing why Liz left him. I was thrilled to have been given this opportunity to review the first book in this series since I'm a big fan of Bella Andre. Her writing style as Lucy Kevin is of a lighter approach. Even though I enjoyed the sweet romance and the reconnection between Liz and Jason, I missed the strong emotions that could have been brought out from both characters. In any case, I'm sure it's meant to be kept light-hearted. It still is a sweet, easy read about second chance romance that shouldn't be missed. I thought the ending was kinda cute even though I felt it was a little abrupt. Overall, this book is a great start to a new series and I sensed some currents going about 2 individuals at Married in Malibu that I can't wait to read about.

This is the first book I have read from Lucy Kevin but not the last. The Beach Wedding was a great read from beginning to end. Married in Malibu is a new branch of a San Francisco wedding company. Liz has left the corporate jungle to plan weddings. Jason just needs to find a new venue for his niece's wedding. Liz and Jason have baggage. When he goes to see if she can help him, he realizes that he must figure out a way to get her back. Liz is just trying to get through this without losing herself again. A wonderful story of two people that need to mature to find that special kind of love. Can't wait to see what is in store for the rest of the Married in Malibu staff!!!

This is the tantalizing "sweet" start to the newest series by Lucy Kevin (Bella Andre) which pairs Liz and Jason who were engaged 10 years ago until Liz ran away just weeks prior to the wedding. Now she is the manager to the newest boutique wedding venue in Malibu catering to celebrities and all their secrecy and security needs. Jason is now a best-selling thriller author who is planning his niece's wedding after her scheduled wedding was becoming a paparazzi nightmare. From the first time Liz opens her office door and Jason is on the other side we are aware of the sparks. They are more prevalent after Jason confronts with the question, "Why did you leave me 10 years ago?" and Liz gives him an honest answer and Jason takes the time to think it through and realize she was right. This book takes us quickly through the 2 weeks of setting up the wedding and the "fake-out" engagement for the press and left me with the same warm feeling I always get after reading this author. I am now first in line for the next in the series! **Received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review**
