Review: I was so ready for this book and could not wait to see how Reese and Mase were doing.
But for some reason I was majorly let down by the way this plot was worked out. I mean Glines barley touches on any of the main topics from the last book and makes this one way too plain and mundane.
I mean there were way to many things shaken and thrown into this book, that were not all that well explained. Such as the fact that Reese’s father was back in her life, not a whole lot of detail with that only a bit. Also the fact that Mase’s annoying cousin did not really give up at the end of the book, I mean come on! Just smack her and throw her out the down please. I do not like stuff like this hanging over me, because if the book does not resolve everything that needs it to, what are we the readers suppose to do when this is that last book that focuses mainly on these two characters.
There was also the weirdness of who Reese’s dad really was, I did not see that plot twist coming, along with Captain ( Blair’s brother) being in this book and connected to Reese’s dad.
I just wish that Abbie Glines had took more time to expand and go into detail with a lot of the things that went down in this book. it feels like all the magic from Mase and Reese’s first book was just a dream. I don’t know maybe in Captains book more will be reveled and explained, but this lack just felt like Glines was afraid to make her book longer.
4 out of 5 stars.

Summary: From #1 New York Times bestselling author Abbi Glines comes the next new adult novel in her beloved Rosemary Beach series, which continues the story of Mase and Reese from When I’m Gone.
The future is bright for Reese Ellis. She has Mase Colt-Manning, the man of her dreams, and a family she didn’t know existed until her long-lost father arrived on her doorstep in Rosemary Beach. After growing up with a cruel mother and abusive stepfather, Reese is eager to get to know the caring and charming man who wants to be a part of her life. Everything is finally falling into place.
While Reese is visiting her new family in Chicago, Mase spends time with his “cousin,” Aida, who has worshipped him since childhood. Though they’re unrelated by blood, Mase and Aida have been raised to think of each other as family. But when Reese returns, she can tell something isn’t quite right with Aida, who clearly resents Reese and excels at manipulative little games. And though Mase is unsuspecting, Reese knows Aida doesn’t love him like a cousin should…
