Excited about being apart of this blog tour does not even cover it!
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?
Ahhhh there are times that I love this book world so much especially when I get to read books like this.
Right off the bat this book is different than anything I have read from Abbi and I was like ruh-rho. Not that its a bad thing. For the character yeah, Abbi not so much. Again because I have never read anything like this from her I was like this can go either way. It went. Batman's Holy Cheese balls did it go and I willingly went with them.
Reese is a sweet girl in a bad situation, when she ends up in Rosemary Beach she is making a living (barely) and doing what she can to survive. She is a fighter but has issues when it comes to guys. She doesn't have very many friends except her neighbor Jimmy. Oh Jimmy, I loves him.
When she meets Mase it isn't under the best circumstances but WOW. Mase. I.. wow, this guy is just what Reese needs. He wants to get to know this mysterious girl who obviously isn't like any of the girls around Rosemary Beach. He is intrigued and his alpha shines through on occasion and I was like...
Then again if you have read Kiro's Emily you'd know where Mase gets his Alpha caveman possessiveness from LOL.
Mase is a man who knows what he wants and he wants Reese. He gets to know her. He is patient and will be there for her whenever she needs him. When he has to go back to Texas (because on top of everything else he's a hot ass Cowboy.) He tells her to call him whenever. This turns into one of the sweetest things I have ever read. I truly started loving this man. Seriously sweetest part.
You know there has to be drama because what book could survive without it. Let me just say the drama was whoa and Nan yeah she's still a bitch. I was glad with the cameos from the residents especially Nate OMG cutest kid ever!
Abi threw me for a loop in the beginning and that ending! WHOA. Loved it.
The lesson I learned here is that I should never underestimate Abbi. She took this book in a direction I wasn't sure would work and was I wrong. So glad I was proven wrong. I couldn't put this book down. Mase and Reese drew me in so completely that I lost track of time, kids and hubby. Their story is sweet and Mase is a true gentleman. I could go on and on about how much I love this book but I think you need to read it. I have to say this is by far my favorite in the series. Mase is just EVERYTHING. I seriously cried when it ended. *Le sigh*
Thank you Abbi for being a great writer and completely showing me that I was so wrong. I will NEVER EVER EVER underestimate your awesomeness again EVER.
