Blog Tour/Review/Giveaway-When You’re Back by Abbi Glines




WHEN YOU’RE BACK (on sale June 30, 2015)

A Rosemary Beach Novel


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.


“She was where my home would always be. It was time I took the next step and proved to her I was all in. Forever.”


A chance meeting in Rosemary Beach has turned into a fairy-tale romance as Reese prepares to move in with Mase on his family ranch in Texas. With the loving support of the Colts, and her recent discovery that she has family of her own, Reese can finally move on from the dark horrors of her past and into a bright future.


But Aida isn’t going to let that happen. The beautiful blonde has been raised to think of Mase as her cousin, but it’s clear to Reese that Aida doesn’t love Mase like a cousin should.


And then there’s Captain, the inescapable stranger who has connections in Dallas and Rosemary Beach—and who conveniently shows up wherever Reese happens to be. Hot, mysterious, and plain-speaking, Captain isn’t afraid to tell Reese what he thinks about Mase—and how he feels about her.


As the competition for Mase and Reese’s hearts heats up, Reese’s past begins to unravel, illuminating shocking truths that will forever change the lives of the happy couple—and set the final stories of Rosemary Beach in motion.

I really enjoyed When You’re Back by Abbi Glines which is the 12th book in her Rosemary Beach series. This is the follow up to When I’m Gone and wraps up the story of Reese and Mase.


Reese finally has everything going good for in her life. She has a family she never knew exsisted, a loving boyfriend and is learning to deal better with her dyslexia. After spending time with her new family she is so excited to be moving to Texas to finally be with Mase again. When she gets there she finds him spending time with a beautiful woman that he says is his cousin Aida. Reese is suspicious of Aida but she trusts that Mase loves her and would never hurt her. Reese tries very hard to get Aida to like her as she would love to have a friend in Texas but she quickly learns that Aida is jealous of the time Mase spends with Reese. Reese loves being with Mase in Texas but she quickly gets bored being home alone all the time so she decides she wants to get her G.E.D. and find a job. She isn’t sure how Mase will react to this news but she is determined to make something of herself.


“Was it possible to love someone as much as I loved Mase? Was it even healthy?”


Mase is very happy to have Reese living in Texas with him. While Reese was away his cousin Aida came to visit and she is very demanding of his attention. All Mase wants to do is spend time with Reese but he can’t get Aida to leave them alone. One night the three of them attend a BBQ where they meet River Kipling who happens to work for one of Mase’s clients. Mase doesn’t like they way River looks at Reese and he really isn’t happy when Reese is offered a job by the Stout’s which means she will be seeing River more often. It bothers him but he loves Reese and will do anything to make her happy.


“Loving her is worth…it’s worth it all. Living in fear of love isn’t living.”


I loved the connection between Mase and Reese. The secondary characters added lots of depth to the storyline. I loved the twists and turns that the story took. It’s always nice catching up with the other characters from this series. I will admit I was very disappointed with how aburptly the story ended. I was really hoping to get more to their HEA that they worked so hard for. I can’t wait to read the book in this series!!
