Review of When I’m Gone (Rosemary Beach #11) by Abbi Glines

When I’m Gone (Rosemary Beach #11)  by Abbi Glines22609598

Review:  I have been waiting for what feels like forever for Mase’s book to finally come around. I was not one bit disappointed in this book at all. Although I was surprised at which character turned out to be my favorite in Mase’s two part story line.

I really need to gush about Reese Ellis in this book. I mean at first you will be hurting for her and wanting to help her, but after that its all bets off. she will make you love her completely. I also understood her pain and shame of not being able to read and feeling so bad about herself for not being smart enough. When I was younger I could not and would not read anything, let alone a book. But look at me now. She also had some abusive parents ( mom and step dad), so these parts may be hard for some of you to read out there. I know some parts were difficult to read through, but in the end I was so happy  for Reese.

Anyway, Reese is just super adorable and sweet and everything a power puff girl is. I just love her to bits, and so does Mase.

I do have this to add on to this review, Abbie Glines touches on a topic that is known but not by a lot of people and does so in a way that makes you want to help in anyway you can. I was so touched by this book I cried in a lot of parts that Reese was concerned.

5 out of 5 stars.

Summary: 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?
