“Glines keeps it simple, but I think it works for the book because not only do you get a full range of emotions, but you end up with a really sweet story as well.”~ Under the Covers

Mase Colt-Manning is Kiro’s son but he much prefers the Texas rancher lifestyle than follow in his father’s rockstar legacy. In fact, he is rarely visits Rosemary Beach especially when having to live with his sister, Nanette.

That all changes when he wakes one morning and encounters some horrific singing. To his surprise, it’s just Reese Ellis, Nan’s housecleaner. Reese is a very sweet but tortured character. When you begin the book, there’s a lot of Reese’s background shown, detailing everything she has endured. Because of it, she thinks herself to be stupid and yet there’s something very sweet and endearing about her character. She’s very hardworking and her polite demeanor shows that she isn’t stupid. Mase notices all these things and when she accidentally cuts herself, he rushes her to the hospital to get some stitches.

Once their worlds have merged, it’s impossible for them to stay away from each other. Mase is the sweetheart of the story. From the very first page, there’s something about him that doesn’t come across as simply badass. He’s a true gentleman through and through. His patience and consideration comes across in this book, making WHEN I’M GONE more sweet than Glines’ other books. However that doesn’t mean it isn’t sexy either.

Mase has a bit of a dirty mouth, but since Reese is quite sensitive, it can backfire on him. How he handles that and how he manages his own lust shows just how deep his feelings for Reese run. That he’s willing to wait for her makes the book a true romance.

WHEN I’M GONE really focuses on the couple. There isn’t much conflict apart from Reese overcoming her own personal obstacles. Glines keeps it simple, but I think it works for the book because not only do you get a full range of emotions, but you end up with a really sweet story as well.
