Book Shelf: When You're Back (Rosemary Beach #11) by Abbi Glines

Love is a journey - Rosemary Beach is the destination...The future is bright for Reese Ellis. She has Mase Colt-Manning, the man of her dreams, and a family she didn't know existed until her long-lost father arrived on her doorstep in Rosemary Beach. Everything is finally falling into place.
While Reese is visiting her new family in Chicago, Mase spends time with his "cousin," Aida, who has worshipped him since childhood. Unrelated by blood, Mase and Aida have been raised to think of each other as family. But when Reese returns, she can tell something isn't quite right. Aida clearly resents Reese and excels at manipulative little games. And though Mase is unsuspecting, Reese knows Aida doesn't love him like a cousin should...

When You're Back is the 11th installment in Abbi Gline's addictive Rosemary Beach series and is the second part to Mase and Reese's tale. Sexy, romantic and sweet, Glines brings her trademark sex appeal and weaves it together with an endearing romance.

Reese Ellis experienced a childhood no woman she have to experience, but with the help of Mase Colt-Manning, Reese is learning what it's like to be loved completely and is taking great strides in accomplishing things she always wanted to accomplish. She has new friends, new family and is happy like she's never been, but when Mase's cousin Aida comes to town, Reese begins to wonder if her happily-ever after might not be so solid after all, and it's up to Mase to convince the woman who owns his heart that a life without her simply isn't possible.

There's no denying I'm an Abbi Glines fan. To say anything else would be an outright lie. I enjoy her easy to read style of writing and the amount of drama, passion and love she manages to pack into each of her novels. When You're Back is the conclusion to Mase and Reese's two part story and is everything I enjoy about Glines's books.

It could have been easy to conclude Mase and Reese's story with When I'm Gone, but When You're Back manages to showcase the strength of Mase and Reese's relationship by pushing them and seeing them rise above. I'll admit there was a couple of times in this novel where Mase's reactions to things irked me, and Reese's obliviousness to what was in front of her wore thin, but I still love both of these characters and am thrilled they found happiness with each other.

Abbi Glines allows readers to get a tiny glimpse into the heart and mind of River "Captain" Kipling in When You're Back, Blaire's half-brother and contradiction of a man who is set to star in the next instalment of the series. I quite like what I'm seeing of Captain so far and look forward to getting to know him more as he finds his HEA of his own in the next book.

Passionate, sweet and deeply enjoyable, When You're Back is another great Rosemary Beach novel you can't help but devour!
