Lily Swanson has been planning her perfect life since she was twelve years old: Meet Mr. Right, have the big white wedding, buy a house in the 'burbs and raise 2.5 picture-perfect kids. However, when her fiancĂ© bails, leaving Lily alone at the altar to face 500 gossipy guests, her dream turns into a nightmare. But then Lily makes an impulsive decision—she ditches the dress, grabs her passport, and heads off to Thailand to spend her honeymoon alone.

Or so she thinks...

Because Lilly quickly learns that everything in Thailand is very hot-the weather, the merchandise, and especially Damien—the sexy, spontaneous man she meets before her feet even hit the sand. Now with no plan, and nothing holding her back, Lily lets Damien lead her on a wild, unpredictable ride to the world's most exclusive party, Burning Moon. But after a week of letting go, indulging her every impulse and desire, Lily must go back to the girl she used to be. Or can Damien convince her that their party doesn't have to end?


What would you do if the day that was supposed to be the happiest of your life took a turn for the worst? Lilly Swanson didn't know the answer to that question until it happened, her fiance left her at the altar and the day that was supposed to be full of smiles and happy tears turned into a day of heart-wrenching tears and pain. So she leaves. Just grabs her passport and goes on her honeymoon alone. Well, alone until she meets free-spirited Damien.

I'm kicking myself for not reading this book sooner! I know it's been around for awhile but I just heard of it recently and I was definitely missing out on something special. I loved reading about Lilly and her journey throughout this book. This author wrote her story perfectly because while reading it was like getting to know your best friend. 

The majority of the book focused on Lilly while the relationship between Lilly and Damien was kind of pushed into the background. Usually that would bother me because I need my romance in stories, but in Burning Moon I ended up loving that we could focus so much on Lilly. I just found her character intriguing and the more we learned about her the more I liked her. 

There was also a good amount of humor put into the story that I loved. There were moments that I found myself laughing out loud and not even caring that I looked like a crazy person laughing in public. The bottom line is that this is a book worth reading if you haven't already. And now it's available in paperback which is even better!
