New Uses For Old Boyfriends by Beth Kendrick + Giveaway

After growing up in privilege and marrying into money, Lila Alders has gotten used to the good life. But when her happily-ever-after implodes, Lila must return to Black Dog Bay, the tiny seaside town where she grew up. She’s desperate for a safe haven, but everything has changed over the past ten years. Her family’s fortune is gone—and her mother is in total denial. It’s up to Lila to take care of everything...but she can barely take care of herself.

The former golden girl of Black Dog Bay struggles to reinvent herself by opening a vintage clothing boutique. But even as Lila finds new purpose for outdated dresses and tries to reunite with her ex, she realizes that sometimes it’s too late for old dreams. She’s lost everything she thought she needed but found something—someone—she desperately wants. A boy she hardly noticed has grown up into a man she can’t forget...and a second chance has never felt so much like first love.

  1. It does sound like a good read. I've never tried to get back together with an ex. An ex is an ex for a reason (or many reasons).

  2. I've never gotten back with an ex but I did think about it once. Would love to read this book!

  3. "...a second chance has never felt so much like first love." I LOVE that! This book sounds really sweet. Please put me in the running. :)

  4. I have reconnected with an ex, the same one twice actually. It worked for a while but ultimately just wasn't right. Thanks for the great prize, carlscott(at)prodigy(dot)net(dot)mx
