Up In Flames by Abbi Glines Blog Tour

A Rosemary Beach Novel
(on sale June 28, 2016)

#1 New York Times bestselling author Abbi Glines returns to Rosemary Beach one last time in this highly-anticipated finale and much beloved series.

Spoiled. Selfish. Rich girl. Villan. Slut.

As the Prada-clad bad girl of Rosemary Beach, Nan Dillon has been called every vile name under the hot summer sun. Some of her reputation is deserved—she’s never had to worry about anything but maintaining her perfect figure and splitting Daddy’s private jet with her brother, Rush.

But Nan is far from happy. Rush has another kid on the way and doesn’t have time to catch up with his sister. Grant, the last guy she truly cared about, chose to be with her half-sister, Harlow, instead of her. And Harlow, who has never gotten over the way Nan treated her when she first moved to town, remains distant.

So when Major asks her out, she jumps at the chance to date the gorgeous charmer. Though she doesn’t know much about the sweet-talking Texan, and though it’s clear he doesn’t want to be exclusive, dating him beats hanging out with vapid socialites or watching Netflix alone at home.

For a while, Nan deals with Major’s playboy ways, but after he burns her one too many times, she takes off for an impromptu wild weekend in Vegas. There, she meets Gannon, a darkly seductive and oh-so-dangerous businessman who knows exactly how to handle her.

With Major asking for a second chance and Gannon haunting her dreams, Nan has to decide who to give her heart to. But what she doesn’t realize is that these players are involved in a much bigger game—and they’re already two moves ahead of her. 
When I found out Nan was getting a book I wasn't so sure if I wanted to read about the biggest bitch in Rosemary Beach. After much debating I figured everyone deserves a second chance, yes even Nan. 

Let me tell you as I went in I was speculative. I mean how was the author going to make me change my mind about this horrible girl? Yes, everyone deserves love so I said "okay Sandie lets give this a chance and read this with an open mind."

I'm glad that I did and although Nan is mean, selfish and self-centered, slowly I began to understand her. Don't get me wrong she is still Nan. I still don't love her but I get her. I saw things from her POV and she grew on me. Not enough to be like OMG I totes LOVE her, but I get it, I get HER. 

What I loved was the fact that not only is there one guy but two and damn I enjoyed every bit of it. Abbi spoon fed me these two totally different men and I was rooting for one but then I was like but damn she should be with the other and then I was like no wait....ahhhh. Who effing knew? Who knew this could or would happen? 

In true Abbi Glines style I still got all twists and turns. Most of all I was pleasantly surprised to find myself being sympathetic to Nan. Overall I feel this is a book every Nan hater should experience. If only to get a better sense of who she is.
