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...


“You’re my reason for everything.”

Not going to lie… When I started this one I wasn’t sure I knew who Captain was.  I have read so many Abbi books I have lost count BUT it didn’t take long for me to remember and I become giddy! I know that Abbi will provide me with a solid read. One that I will enjoy. I am still invested in these characters and that’s not always easy to do.

Oh my! I want to drown in River! He has an edge that I love. It doesn’t hurt that I love a bad boy and River is a very bad boy.  His heart is gold though, through and through.  His tough exterior is only a shell that protects his broken heart.  Sweet Abby.  Making choices as a teenager that any adult would be rocked by, has pressed forward to make a life for her and her daughter.  Curiosity may be enough to bring this family together but will River’s past drown them all?

“Because when River Joshua Kipling decided you were worth protecting, he did it with everything he had.”

Just when I think I am done with these characters I am drawn back in. Abbi’s brand of crack has me hooked. Now I am waiting for the impossible… can I love Nan? Bring it on Abbi!
