Gossip is the ultimate currency in Rosemary Beach, but Bethy and Tripp have managed to keep one big secret to themselves.Eight years ago, Tripp Newark was dating a rich girl he didn’t like and was on his way to Yale—and a future he didn’t want. The only way he could escape his predictable life would be to give up the money and power that came with his family’s name. And that’s exactly what he planned to do. At the end of the summer, he was going to ride off on his Harley and never look back. That was before he met Beth Lowry.It was only supposed to be a summer fling. She was a sixteen-year-old trailer-park girl who served drinks to his friends at Kerrington Country Club. They didn’t run in the same social circles. No one even knew they were friends, let alone lovers. Yet, for one summer, Bethy became his entire world.But he couldn’t give up on his plan. He needed to leave Rosemary Beach, but he vowed he would come back for her. Problem was, by the time he came back—years later than promised—it was too late. His cousin, Jace, had already claimed the woman he loved
“Thank you, Jace Newark. For loving me, for saving me, for being my hero.”
The best kept secret ever… Bethy and Tripp.
“You will always remind me of what I lost. Twice. I only lose with you, Tripp. You leave destruction in your wake. I can’t handle losing anything more.”
This one hurt. There has been so much pain in both Bethy and Tripp’s life that I wondered if they could find some form of happily ever after. Be it together or apart they both pull at my heart strings. How do you rebuild after the damage is so deep? Sex and alcohol cover pain that would cripple the best of us. The temporary bandage they supply is a dangerous one.
Tripp wins my Rosemary Beach heart. Working to right what was wrong, he stands strong to protect the one person he loves most, Bethy. He knows the ache that she holds, as he is nursing the same one. Slow and steady he is attempting to win back Bethy’s mind because her heart was always his.
“Things worth having don’t come easy… You have to fight for it until you’re tired of fighting, and then you take a breather and fight some more.”
Book nine in the Rosemary Beach series is one step closer to the end. Abbi has found a wining combo for word crack. Excuse me as I itch my neck and twitch till I get Kiro’s Emily. The formula is simple but it works well. I enjoyed You Were Mine and is a must read for the Rosemary Beach lovers.
