From #1 New York Times bestselling author Abbi Glines comes the next new adult novel in her beloved Rosemary Beach series, which continues the story of Mase and Reese from When I’m Gone.

The future is bright for Reese Ellis. She has Mase Colt-Manning, the man of her dreams, and a family she didn’t know existed until her long-lost father arrived on her doorstep in Rosemary Beach. After growing up with a cruel mother and abusive stepfather, Reese is eager to get to know the caring and charming man who wants to be a part of her life. Everything is finally falling into place.

While Reese is visiting her new family in Chicago, Mase spends time with his “cousin,” Aida, who has worshipped him since childhood. Though they’re unrelated by blood, Mase and Aida have been raised to think of each other as family. But when Reese returns, she can tell something isn’t quite right with Aida, who clearly resents Reese and excels at manipulative little games. And though Mase is unsuspecting, Reese knows Aida doesn’t love him like a cousin should...

Cover: A cute cover that I neither love or hate.

I really enjoy the Rosemary Beach series- my favourites are still the first ones, Fallen Too Far, Never Too Far, Forever Too Far and Rush Too Far.  Rush and Blaire just can't be beaten for me.
I really enjoyed the first book in Mase and Reece's story- When I'm Gone, so was really looking forward to the conclusion to their story.
And I enjoyed this one too.
I'm a sucker for cheesy romance, and that is exactly what I got.
I do find one element of this series slightly disturbing in it's formulaic approach, and that's how all these young people are spawning, and I don't think it's very believable that all these young couples are reproducing at a somewhat alarming rate.
Other than that- I did really enjoy it, but just not quite as much as the first.
3.5/5 stars.

Read from July 18 to 21, 2015
