I had an urge to fix all her problems. Which was stupid. She was doing fine without me. But something about those big eyes…
Mase Colt-Manning has always preferred his humble life as a Texas rancher to his birthright as the son of a legendary rock star. In fact, he rarely visits his father’s rarefied world in Rosemary Beach, especially if it means bunking at his vile half-sister Nan’s house—until one visit leads to a chance encounter with a young, gorgeous house maid who awakens him with her off-key but spirited imitation of a country music star…
Reese Ellis finally has her freedom. After escaping a lifetime of abuse from her parents and classmates for an undiagnosed learning disorder, she seizes the opportunity to be a house maid to some of the richest families in Rosemary Beach. But her job is in jeopardy when she causes an accident at the home of her most important client, Nan Dillon. When a hot, half-naked stranger with a cowboy’s swagger comes to her rescue, she’s intrigued—then afraid once he shows his own interest. Reese has never met a trustworthy man in her life. Will Mase be any different?
First… AAAGGGGHHHHHH!! Hi guys of Rosemary Beach I missed you!!! Okay, now that that’s out of the way; I loved this! Of course I tend to love much of Abbi Glines work. I was worried that this series was starting to get stale. You would think that after eleven books I would I tire of it all. Nope, Nuh-uh, not happening. It is still fun, fresh and hella sexy.
Mase Colt-Manning is such a modern day southern gentleman. His inner monologue is as funny as it is steamy. Gentle, caring, and protective is the perfect description for him.
As for the lovely Reese, her childhood is a terrifying one. Still recovering and learning to trust, she’s cleaning houses for a living. When Mase uncovers one of her hidden shames, everything changes. Any adult dealing with a learning disability tends to struggle more so than a child. Especially if it has never been properly diagnosed or addressed. The way in which Mase handles this issue is a testament to the man he is.
Beautifully written and caustically sweet, When I’m Gone is going down a favorite of mine.
