My first trip to Rosemary Beach

This is the only book I've read from this series and I enjoyed it. But it didn't fill me with the need to go back and read the other books in the series. I thought the narrators did a good job, but why can't the male narrator just read the male characters and likewise with the female? That notwithstanding, I loved the intensity of the male lead and the openness of the female lead. Stories that keep the characters on a merry-go-round for 3/4 of the book because each one is afraid to be honest with the other is just tedious. Sweet romance novel but not a thriller.

When I'm Gone

Abbi Glines did it again. Goodness, I think I'm a Rosemary Beach junkie. Lol. But seriously, when I finished reading Trip and Bethy's story and there wasn't anymore to read, I was so sad. Then Mace! I was anticipating again. :) And Abbi Glines didn't disappoint. I love it. I can't wait for the next one. I just hope this will keep me until her new series since sea breeze is also gone.

I Love Abbi Glines!

Abbi Glines never disappoints! I was so excited to read to Mase's story. It was engaging and emotional. I really felt for Reese and her struggles. Mase is just...alpha, a protector, a fixer, strong, sexy and breath taking. Of course the section where Nan is mentioned made me want scream. I don't know if Nan can ever be redemable. I loved the story, I loved the narration, and I can't wait for second half of this story.

Tragic Past

Mase Colt-Manning & Reese Ellis

When we are first introduced to Mase, I admit I swooned. He is like the best big brother ever. And he was soooo protective... I just loved that.

So when we meet Reese and her past is haunting I was so glad she get Mase as a love interest if anyone deserves to have someone protect her its Reese.

Being a rock stars offspring isn’t easy but I don’t get the feeling Mase ever let it bother him too much, he has a great Momma and he has a great stepdad. So I don’t think he ever understood what a hard home life is like.

Reese on the other hand, I shudder to understand the hell she lived through. And to still be such a beautiful soul is amazing.

The way she meets Mase was funny and makes me smile even now. I can understand her a lot in this book how she struggled to trust. She hasn’t known kindness, so she doesn’t know how to act.

This book is a great addition to this series. These cliff-hangers though.. even the second time around and knowing I can go right into the next book... I still want to shake my fist at Abbi. Lmao...

Same story different title

I'm so tired of Abbi writing the same damn story over and over. It's time for new material... Please, im all for a formula that works... But this is all the other books mixed together. And it certainly doesn't need to be a two book series.

Abused and Determined Reese Begins A New Life

Reese has been abused by a stepfather, and her mother until she runs away and survives on her own. Leery of men and having learning disability life is an up hill battle.
Mace, Harlow and Nan’s half brother has been introduced in previous books and meets and begins to care for and protect Reese.
An uphill battle, but sweet and loving couple Reese and Mace start to build a life...however there twists and turns don’t end i even in the last sentence.
Two of my very favorite narrators, Grace Grant and Jason Carpenter bring life and connection to the characters and story.
One of my favorite couple in Rosemary Beach!

Mase!!

I've thoroughly enjoyed the Rosemary Beach Series by Abbi Glines, which began with the Rush Crush, then we were wowed by Woods, turned on by Trip, and became gluttons for Grant, though Grant did have to work harder to win me over. If you are a fan of the series, then you've met Mase, and I was really, really looking forward to getting to know more about Mase. He just had the hot cowboy mixed with a little bit of bad boy thing going on. He has shown himself to be fiercely protective over his sister Harlow, and is about as fond of his other sister, Nan, as the rest of the world is, which isn't much. I loved Reese, and my heart broke for her on more than one occasion. She is a better person that I could have ever been in some of the situations that she faced. She and Mase really had a special connection and I loved seeing him help her to bloom into the lovely person that she really was. Of course the story wouldn't be a story without some heartache, some misunderstandings, and some of the other hotties popping up in the picture as well, causing a little jealousy to raise it's ugly head along the way. That said, I really did enjoy getting to see many of the characters we've all come to know and love make an appearance in this story as well.

Reese and Mase also had to deal with the distance issue, him being in Texas and her being in Rosemary Beach, which was a bit difficult to say the least. Then there was the Nan........... and if you know who Nan is, just her name is enough said. I enjoyed the way Abbi Glines pulled everything together for these characters by the end of the book, leaving you happy, but on the edge of your seat waiting for the next installment so you could finish Reese and Mase's story. I purposely waited until Mase and Reese's second book came out before I read this, because I knew it would drive me crazy if I had to wait. Contemporary romance fans and fans of the Rosemary Beach series will love reading When I'm Gone. I know I did.

Another Winner

Book 10 in the Rosemary Beach series tells the story of Texas rancher Mase (Harlow's brother) and Reese (who was emotionally and physically abused as a child) . Reese, who suffers from dyslexia, works as a cleaner in Rosemary Beach, and has serious trust issues with all men, except one, her gay neighbour Jimmy. While cleaning the house of legendary rock singer Kiro (father of Mase, Nan and Harlow), she meets the hunky Texas rancher Mase who is in Rosemary Beach for a few days. Mase takes Reese under his wing and helps and nurtures her, bringing back her trust in men. Falling in love is not always easy and they both have few hurdles to jump along the way. Just when I thought they were about to get their HEA Abbi throws in a curveball. Book 11 here I come.
