Author: Abbi Glines
Release Date: December 1, 2015
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Abbi Glines comes the next sizzling novel in the Rosemary Beach series, featuring well-known playboy and Blaire’s half brother, Captain.
"The look on Rose’s face had screamed that she was hiding something. Hell, she’d practically run away from me. There was something to that. I knew there was..."
After ten years in the employ of a mysterious crime boss, River “Captain” Kipling is ready to leave his sordid past—and his cover occupation as an upscale restaurateur—behind him. The only thing standing in the way of his “retirement” is his commitment to launch a new restaurant in the resort town of Rosemary Beach. With his sister, Blaire, nearby, Captain can delay his dream of running a humble bar on the waterfront, but the unwanted attentions of his head server, Elle, have him itching to get out.
Until he notices Rose Henderson, the new server at the restaurant. All he knows about the pretty redhead with the cute glasses is that she’s a hardworking single mom from Oklahoma. But there’s something overly familiar about her laugh... something strange about the way she looks at Captain....
I love a second chance love story and Captain and Addy's story had me giddy with all the lovey-dovey feelings and rooting for them to get their much deserved HEA!! Be ready to have your heart smashed to pieces, as well as get it repaired piece by piece...but it will take time, so be prepared!!
River Kipling lost the one true love he ever had and from that moment on, he became a shell of himself—not caring what he did in life because the one thing he wanted was forever gone. Addison did what she had not only to save River, but to save herself as well!!
Being able to read the past in both of their POV's had me intrigued, but also helped me to delve deeper into what made them who they were today. Captain had me wanting to smack some sense and love into him, but I realized that the only one that would be able to do that is Addy! They say once you've found your soulmate, no one can ever replace him/her, and that is true of Addy! After ten years, her only love is her daughter, Franny, whom I. Freaking. Loved to pieces!!
I was rooting for Captain and Addy to finally get their much needed HEA because they have been to hell and back!! I will say, their story was my favorite one and the perfect one to close this series! You will fall in love with Captain, Addy and Franny's story just like I did, and it will help you to appreciate your loved ones! Thank you, Ms. Glines! <3
