Book 10 in the Rosemary Beach series tells the story of Texas rancher Mase (Harlow's brother) and Reese (who was emotionally and physically abused as a child) . Reese, who suffers from dyslexia, works as a cleaner in Rosemary Beach, and has serious trust issues with all men, except one, her gay neighbour Jimmy. While cleaning the house of legendary rock singer Kiro (father of Mase, Nan and Harlow), she meets the hunky Texas rancher Mase who is in Rosemary Beach for a few days. Mase takes Reese under his wing and helps and nurtures her, bringing back her trust in men. Falling in love is not always easy and they both have few hurdles to jump along the way. Just when I thought they were about to get their HEA Abbi throws in a curveball. Book 11 here I come.
"My first trip to Rosemary Beach"
This is the only book I've read from this series and I enjoyed it. But it didn't fill me with the need to go back and read the other books in the series. I thought the narrators did a good job, but why can't the male narrator just read the male characters and likewise with the female? That notwithstanding, I loved the intensity of the male lead and the openness of the female lead. Stories that keep the characters on a merry-go-round for 3/4 of the book because each one is afraid to be honest with the other is just tedious. Sweet romance novel but not a thriller.
"HOLY @#$% !!!!"
Abbi Glines you have outdone yourself! Just when I didn't think anyone would compare to Rush and Blair, HERE COMES MASE AND REESE! I beg of you not to make us wait for the next book! You are amazing! And Jason Carpenter just became my new voice crush! Grace, come on, we ALL know she is always perfection! Love!!!!!
"When I'm Gone"
Abbi Glines did it again. Goodness, I think I'm a Rosemary Beach junkie. Lol. But seriously, when I finished reading Trip and Bethy's story and there wasn't anymore to read, I was so sad. Then Mace! I was anticipating again. :) And Abbi Glines didn't disappoint. I love it. I can't wait for the next one. I just hope this will keep me until her new series since sea breeze is also gone.
"I Love Abbi Glines!"
Abbi Glines never disappoints! I was so excited to read to Mase's story. It was engaging and emotional. I really felt for Reese and her struggles. Mase is just...alpha, a protector, a fixer, strong, sexy and breath taking. Of course the section where Nan is mentioned made me want scream. I don't know if Nan can ever be redemable. I loved the story, I loved the narration, and I can't wait for second half of this story.
I've thoroughly enjoyed the Rosemary Beach Series by Abbi Glines, which began with the Rush Crush, then we were wowed by Woods, turned on by Trip, and became gluttons for Grant, though Grant did have to work harder to win me over. If you are a fan of the series, then you've met Mase, and I was really, really looking forward to getting to know more about Mase. He just had the hot cowboy mixed with a little bit of bad boy thing going on. He has shown himself to be fiercely protective over his sister Harlow, and is about as fond of his other sister, Nan, as the rest of the world is, which isn't much. I loved Reese, and my heart broke for her on more than one occasion. She is a better person that I could have ever been in some of the situations that she faced. She and Mase really had a special connection and I loved seeing him help her to bloom into the lovely person that she really was. Of course the story wouldn't be a story without some heartache, some misunderstandings, and some of the other hotties popping up in the picture as well, causing a little jealousy to raise it's ugly head along the way. That said, I really did enjoy getting to see many of the characters we've all come to know and love make an appearance in this story as well.
Reese and Mase also had to deal with the distance issue, him being in Texas and her being in Rosemary Beach, which was a bit difficult to say the least. Then there was the Nan........... and if you know who Nan is, just her name is enough said. I enjoyed the way Abbi Glines pulled everything together for these characters by the end of the book, leaving you happy, but on the edge of your seat waiting for the next installment so you could finish Reese and Mase's story. I purposely waited until Mase and Reese's second book came out before I read this, because I knew it would drive me crazy if I had to wait. Contemporary romance fans and fans of the Rosemary Beach series will love reading When I'm Gone. I know I did.
"when I'm gone"
I wanted to hear more about these characters. so I went on to the next book about Reese and Maze. loved that one too!

Great story and the narrators are awesome. I can't wait for the next book, already have it on pre-order.
"LOVED THIS ONE!!"
This story broke my heart from the very beginning and Mase's and Reese's love put it all back together!!!! Aside from a few dramatic stretches in a few areas of the story, it's definitely one of my favorite Abbi Glines books. Can't wait to see what happens next; I highly recommend this one!
