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.

Consent is Sexy

I love that Mase finally has his own love story and I love the dark road to recovery we witness through Reese.
The story was patient with Reese's emotions which only added to her and Mase's strong relationship. Unlike most of Abbi's romances that feel almost like their love is controlled by lust (not complaining about those either) but it was refreshing to have a more innocent and real relationship blossom.
And great choice for narrators.

Jason Carpenter’s voice Yum Yum

Abbi Glines writes wounded female leads where an alpha male saves them so well. I love her stories. Well worth a credit!

Mase first book!

🎧 AUDIO REVIEW 🎧

AUDIO 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

BOOK 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Mase first book in the series I loved him. I did get annoyed sometime at Reese when she didn’t get what Mase was doing as he wasn’t hiding how he felt.

Loved the different back grounds and how they met.

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.
