WHEN I’M GONE by Abbi Glines
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Abbi Glines comes the next new adult novel in the Rosemary Beach series, in which we meet Mase, a Texas heartthrob first introduced in Take a Chance who comes to Rosemary Beach to stir things up. I had an urge to fix all her problems. Which was stupid. She was doing fine without me. But something about those big eyes… Mase Colt-Manning has always preferred his humble life as a Texas rancher to his birthright as the son of a legendary rock star. In fact, he rarely visits his father’s rarefied world in Rosemary Beach, especially if it means bunking at his vile half-sister Nan’s house—until one visit leads to a chance encounter with a young, gorgeous house maid who awakens him with her off-key but spirited imitation of a country music star… Reese Ellis finally has her freedom. After escaping a lifetime of abuse from her parents and classmates for an undiagnosed learning disorder, she seizes the opportunity to be a house maid to some of the richest families in Rosemary Beach. But her job is in jeopardy when she causes an accident at the home of her most important client, Nan Dillon. When a hot, half-naked stranger with a cowboy’s swagger comes to her rescue, she’s intrigued—then afraid once he shows his own interest. Reese has never met a trustworthy man in her life. Will Mase be any different?
Holy Hell, I would like a tall order of Mase Colt-Manning!! I have eagerly awaited this installment of the Rosemary Beach series as we have witnessed in the past books just how delicious he really is. But OMG did he exceed all of my expectations. Mase and Reese’s story was AMAZING!! Does the Rosemary Beach series have a common theme running through the storyline, Yes. But does that make each story any less special…. A big fat NO. This story destroyed my heart, built it up, destroyed it again and then left me feeling ooey gooey and then desperately needing more. Abbi Glines touches on a very serious subject matter in this one and it is done with such brutal honesty and emotion that it is sure to leave you scarred. Reese was a breath of fresh air as a female lead. To endure everything she did and to come out with such grace made for a beautiful story. Then there is Mase…. holy hot alpha cowboy. I will take him any day. All in all this was a great addition to the series and I am in serious need for When You’re Back!!
