This book was received from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
Abbi Glines is a writing machine and freaking genius. The Rosemary Beach series is absolutely one of my favorites!
Harlow is a really strong heroine. She really grew from book 1, Take A Chance, and it was great. There were a few surprises that I wasn’t expecting, and she took them like a champ. She is also the most caring and non-judgemental heroine ever. She totally deserved her happily-ever-after.
Grant also grew sooo much. I loved how he got over and faced his fears, which I was waiting for him to do for a whileee. I’m so glad it finally happened. I love his protectiveness and how he would do anything for Harlow. He was there for her during some of her hardest times.
For me, Kiro was the biggest surprise of them all. On the outside, he is a hard-edged rocker but underneath he is this completely different guy. I mean, WOW! And Nan, I would reallyyyyy like a book for her. To me, she is redeemable and I’d love for her to finally find love and a home.
I was totally not expecting the shocker right at the beginning but I loved it! Totally great. Abbi certainly keeps her readers on their toes. The romance had some incredibly sweet moments that I live for in books. And the ending was grade-A perfect.
I am really looking forward to both Bethy and Mason’s books! I can’t seem to get enough.
Favorite Swoon-worthy Quote: The kiss wasn’t holding back anything. His hands gripped my hips tightly in a possessive, hungry grasp as his mouth slid across mine, I tasted the mint from his gum and shivered at the intimate contact. The dinging of the elevator reminded us that we weren’t alone yet.
