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.

My Thoughts:

Abbi Glines continues to deliver!  As one of my auto-buy authors, I have never been disappointed in one of her stories.  I know I'm in for a sizzling, sexy, hot page turner, when I pick up a book by this author.  In, When You're back, the love story of Mase Colt Manning and Reese Ellis continues.

Reese has been separated from Mase for almost month while she has been visiting her newly discovered biological father's side of the family.  She decides she can't be separated from the man she loves any longer, and surprises Mase when she shows up in Dallas.  However, Reese is the one with the surprise when she discovers, Aida, Mase's clingy "cousin" who acts like she wants Mase all to herself.  

Simultaneously, Blaire's brother "Captain" like's what he see's when he looks at Reese, and thinks that Mase doesn't deserve her.  He is determined to win Reese over, and has no problem flirting, or speaking his mind about what he perceives to be Mase's shortcomings. 

When You're Back, reminded me of why I fell in love with Mase to begin with!  He is one of the sweetest, sexiest, and most adoring cowboy's that I have had the pleasure of meeting.  It might have taken him longer than I wanted for him to realize that Aida was up to no good, but that's because there isn't a mean, or manipulative bone in his body!  Reese is a strong, and mature woman.  I would have pulled Aida's hair out or wiped her conniving grin off of her face eventually, but Reese had faith in her man!

Mase and Reese are absolutely adorable as a couple.  They love and respect one another, and treasure what they have together.  These two are soul mates, and not only do they have a deep emotional connection, but a downright erotic spark in the bedroom!

This story had a few plot twists; one of which was huge, and I never saw coming!  I hope Captain gets his own story.  I found him to be an interesting character, and still have some questions that pertain to him.  I thought the ending of the story was really sweet and romantic.  Even though it wrapped up Colt and Reese's story, I look forward to hopefully getting more of them as secondary characters.       

My Rating:

Fans of the Rosemary Beach Series will be excited to know that we get many of our beloved characters in this story!  It was especially wonderful catching up with Grant and Harlow, and my heart continued to break for Mase's biological father Kiro's situation with Emily.  I give, When You're Back, by Abbi Glines, 4.5 Romantic Cowboy, Beautiful Love Story, Fairytale Ending Filled Stars!

  1. Great review! I am glad you liked this one. Mase has always been one of my favorite characters in this series. I am a few books behind though, for some reason I have to be in the mood for one of her books. Which is why she is not on auto-buy for me. :(

  2. Seems like I'd like Mase. It's nice he figures it out with his cousin but like you, I'd want him to do it faster.

    I stopped reading this series a while back. I guess because they all felt the same to me That's both good and bad sometimes.

    1. I know that you would love Mase Val :) Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Love the sound o Mase. I really do need to try this author, everyone seems to love her.

  4. The sweet ones like Mace never are equipped for the cunning manipulative types. I would want to pull some hair, too. Yay for a mature heroine!

    I haven't read any of her books in a few years and it sounds like I'm missing out.

    1. I know! They just aren't able to pick up on others that are so different from them.

  5. Glines virgin here!! Is it sad that I've not had the pleasure of her writing? I've read so many great reviews for her books but have never found out for myself if it's my taste. I'm truly a sad individual.

    1. LOL You're funny Lekeisha! You should try out one of her books and see what you think. I've enjoyed all of her stories :)


We love to hear your thoughts, and appreciate you stopping by :)
