Book Description:
From #1 "New York Times "bestselling author Abbi Glines comes a brand-new Rosemary Beach novel about Tripp Newark and his hidden romantic past with Bethy Lowry. 

In the eyes of the wealthy playboys who frequent Kerrington Country Club in Rosemary Beach, Tripp Newark is a hero. Under pressure from his parents to become a lawyer and lead a conservative, upper-class life, Tripp disappeared from town five years ago to travel the world, forfeiting the opportunity to inherit millions. Yet few know what he was really running from...


Bethy Lowry was unraveling long before her boyfriend drowned in a riptide trying to save her after she'd had one too many drinks--again. A trailer park kid working as a cart girl among the wealthy patrons of Kerrington Country Club, Bethy has always been impressionable. But five years ago, before she earned her reputation as a hard-drinking, easy girl, she had spent a single summer with Tripp Newark that changed her life forever...

It feels like I have been waiting forever for Tripp and Bethy's story and when I saw that it was to be the next in the Rosemary Beach series, I jumped at the chance.

Finally, I would get the background info and the full story of what happened to Jace, never mind what in the world happened between Tripp and Bethy.

And oh boy did I get it.

I think this might every well be my most favorite book in the series yet. I loved it, I devoured it, and I was left feeling complete when it was done.

Tripp was amazing and I wanted to reach through the pages and squeeze him tight and tell him not to give up and to go after what he wanted, what he deserved. 

This was the perfect length with the perfect amount of hot steamy moments and sweet tender moments.


Once again Glines has wowed me with her ability to create a love story worth swooning over and thinking about long after you have put it down.

  1. Did someone say hot and steamy moments? That would be awesome if there are a lot of that in here! ^^ Are the books episodic, or do you need to read the rest to understand this one?

    1. You do't need to read the rest to understand them but there would be spoilers for the other couples since they are present in this but nothing big.

    YAY! Love it when I find a book like this - one that I simply can't put down and want to pick up again and read immediately after finishing. I have yet to read anything by Abbi Glines which I know is a complete fail, but I'm hoping to get to her in the near future:)

  14. I like how it wasn't the main characters you were looking forward too. These kinds of books where different characters are the main usually have such great characters.

    1. I agree, sometimes those secondary characters are just fabulous and need their own book!

  15. It's awesome that by the ninth book in the series, you are still loving it. So many series of that length go downhill, so glad to hear this one doesn't.

    1. It is really fun when that happens and I think that you can read these as stand alone books, really helps.

  16. She's another I still need to try out. I have one of hers it just keeps getting pushed back for review books. So awful. I'm going to try for it this next year though :)

  18. Oh yes it's always so interesting to have background of a story like that! I understand why you enjoyed it.

  19. I enjoy her writing and characters as well! This looks like a cute story, bah completely missed the book before this one I think

  21. So excited about this one. I bought it in audio and it will be the next book I listen to. I've been putting off this series forever, so I ended up getting all the audio books and I am caught up until this one, and I have thoroughly enjoyed them. Great review!!!
