” 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.

  1. I agree…I don’t understand why they have to sleep with other people… I just finished a book like this and it totally put me off the story

  2. Gosh, I felt the same way. I even rated it the same as you. It was really plane simple and boring. To bad.

    1. Yeah. I don’t think I was waiting for a redemption simply because that girl has caused so much trouble throughout the entire series, but I was looking for something different to occur. Not the same story again.

  3. I’ve read all of Abbi’s books and she has a distinct pattern of “damsel in distress girl” and “bad boy ready to be tamed”, which I hate. With the exception of one or two male characters, all of her damaged characters are female. This book, and the previous book, for me at least, didn’t even feel like the same series. I was glad to see Nan’s softer side and her true outlook on her self-worth, but I hate that she had to go slut it up like she did. I mean, doing that with the RB guys was one thing, but a complete stranger? Ugh! And, in my opinion, he was a jerk. And normally Nan is tougher than that, so I was hating the way he was talking to her, etc. I mean, he slapped her face! But besides the whole Nan story, this (as far as I know) was the series finale. And it didn’t even feel like part of the series, let alone a finale. Abbi did a fantastic job with the Sea Breeze finale, one of her best books ever. This was just okay, definitely a bit disappointing. I wanted Nan to explain and redeem herself, and I don’t feel like we got that. We already knew she had neglectful, selfish parents. What I didn’t want was for Nan to become another one of Abbi’s weak females. Sigh.

    1. Thanks for your thoughts, Kristy and I totally understand what you mean. The last one also wasn’t a fave of mine and I think this book followed the same pattern. I don’t understand why the authors makes them have sexual acts with other people, but then again, she did with that Rush at the beginning of the series as well. I guess it’s her way of creating conflict. In the end, however, I thought the story in this one just wasn’t up to par with some of the other books I’ve read.
