” It’s just too much of the same book after book and I had wished that Glines had done something different.”
~ Under the Covers
When I heard that Abbi Glines was going to write Nan’s story, I have to admit that I was a little excited. Nan has been the villian of the series. Her annoying, insecure and downright haughty ways have grated on me for the course of the series but I wanted to see if Glines would be able to redeem her.
The hero of this story is someone we have already met in the series but for the sake of not spoiling anyone, I won’t mention who it is. However, I will say that I enjoyed the pairing. How the premise of this story and how they end up together is a little more complicated than it needs to be but if you’re a fan of Glines’ style of writing, I think you’ll like it.
Unfortunately for me, this book was too much of the same. The hero sleeps with people that is not the heroine. We’ve seen this in the early books with Rush and even in the last book. I simply don’t understand this. It doesn’t put the hero in a good light and if the author hopes to make the hero look sexy by doing this, I think there are much better ways to accomplish the same thing. It’s just too much of the same book after book and I had wished that Glines had done something different.
Surprisingly Nan didn’t really annoy me like she has in the other books. She does have some bad moments but she is not as bad as I expected her to be. If readers wanted to read this as a standalone, I would even go and say that they might actually like Nan if they didn’t know her from before. So while I didn’t enjoy what happened in this book, I liked that Glines attempted this book. It’s a good way to end the Rosemary Beach series.
What did you think of our review?
Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below!
When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
