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 always have the best time while reading one of Abbi Glines' books. I always know I'm in for that happily ever after that I sometimes need after reading a book that has completely crushed me. I first read Fallen Too Far a couple years back and instantly fell in love with her writing style. I have been obsessed with the Rosemary Beach Series since that cold February day a little over two years ago. Rush and Blaire got me hooked and every other couple since has kept me loving this series!
I have been curios about River "Captain" Kipling since he first appeared ten books back and when I finished When You're Back I needed more! So here he is! Finally gracing us with his story and boy is it heartbreaking. For 10 years Captain has been going through the motions, yearning and trying to come to terms with losing the most important person in his life. He's finally decided to leave his questionable employment behind, start fresh, and spend time getting to know his family, but he can't seem to take his eyes off of his new server Rose Henderson. Rose is also trying to figure out a few things, and a lot of them depend on what kind of man River Kipling is. Will he be the man she hopes he is or will he let her down without even realizing?
Abbi always knows how to deliver a story jam packed with angst, heart, and sexy time! I devoured this story with gusto, and was sad to see it end.
