UP IN FLAMES
A Rosemary Beach Novel
#1 New York Times bestselling author Abbi Glines returns to Rosemary Beach one last time in this highly-anticipated finale and much beloved series.
Spoiled. Selfish. Rich girl. Villan. Slut.
As the Prada-clad bad girl of Rosemary Beach, Nan Dillon has been called every vile name under the hot summer sun. Some of her reputation is deserved—she’s never had to worry about anything but maintaining her perfect figure and splitting Daddy’s private jet with her brother, Rush.
But Nan is far from happy. Rush has another kid on the way and doesn’t have time to catch up with his sister. Grant, the last guy she truly cared about, chose to be with her half-sister, Harlow, instead of her. And Harlow, who has never gotten over the way Nan treated her when she first moved to town, remains distant.
So when Major asks her out, she jumps at the chance to date the gorgeous charmer. Though she doesn’t know much about the sweet-talking Texan, and though it’s clear he doesn’t want to be exclusive, dating him beats hanging out with vapid socialites or watching Netflix alone at home.
For a while, Nan deals with Major’s playboy ways, but after he burns her one too many times, she takes off for an impromptu wild weekend in Vegas. There, she meets Gannon, a darkly seductive and oh-so-dangerous businessman who knows exactly how to handle her.
With Major asking for a second chance and Gannon haunting her dreams, Nan has to decide who to give her heart to. But what she doesn’t realize is that these players are involved in a much bigger game—and they’re already two moves ahead of her.
I have really enjoyed the Rosemary Beach series by Abbi Glines and am very sad that it has come to an end. I was very excited to have received an ARC of this book. I have been a #NanHater from the very first book and I was curious to see if Abbi could get me to change my mind about her.
Nan has always been the villain in this series and I was really hoping that she would redeem herself. If you have read the series, you know that she has never really felt loved and I was hoping she would finally find her HEA. Nan and Major were a mess from the very beginning and I never really felt a connection between them. He didn’t treat her very well and all she wanted was to feel loved and appreciated. When Gannon entered the story I was really hoping that there would be a deep connection between them but aside from a few dates most of their interaction took place in the bedroom. The best part of this story was seeing Blair and Nan getting along better and watching Nan interact with her nephew Nate. I was happy that Nan finally did end up finding her place in this world. Abbi didn’t turn me into a #NanLover but I am happy that she finally found love and happiness.
I really enjoyed this book even though I didn’t connect with the male main characters. I did love the twists and turns this story took. I was happy with the way Nan’s life turned out and loved seeing the way she interacted with Nate. Even though she comes across as an evil witch most of the time it was nice to see that she really does have a big heart. I can’t wait to see what Abbi is working on next!!
