The Best Goodbye by Abbi Glines
Rosemary Beach, #13
Release Date: December 1, 2015
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Abbi Glines comes the next sizzling novel in the Rosemary Beach series, featuring well-known playboy and Blaire’s half brother, Captain.
“The look on Rose’s face had screamed that she was hiding something. Hell, she’d practically run away from me. There was something to that. I knew there was . . . “
After ten years in the employ of a mysterious crime boss, River “Captain” Kipling is ready to leave his sordid past—and his cover occupation as an upscale restaurateur—behind him. The only thing standing in the way of his “retirement” is his commitment to launch a new restaurant in the resort town of Rosemary Beach. With his sister, Blaire, nearby, Captain can delay his dream of running a humble bar on the waterfront, but the unwanted attentions of his head server, Elle, have him itching to get out.
Until he notices Rose Henderson, the new server at the restaurant. All he knows about the pretty redhead with the cute glasses is that she’s a hardworking single mom from Oklahoma. But there’s something overly familiar about her laugh…something strange about the way she looks at Captain…
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with an advanced reviewer copy for an honest review.
I am a huge fan of Abbi Glines’ books and The Best Goodbye does not disappoint. You get a rotating POV from Rose aka Addy and Captain aka River. The Best Goodbye is heartbreaking, steamy, healing, and everything you can expect from Abbi!!! This beautiful story goes back in time to capture what happened in the past between them, and how did they get to this point.
Rose knew Captain, but he did not recognize her. It had been many years since they had seen each other and he was not the same man she remembered. The man she remembered and loved River would never have treated people the way he was or chosen to be with the kind of women he was choosing. What had made him this way? She couldn’t let him know anything until she was sure of what happened.
Captain is cold and keeps everyone at a distance ever since he lost her. The girl from his past, the girl that is the only one he will ever love. He tries to pick women to numb the pain, ones that will never remind him of her. Something about the women he was working with, Rose was setting off memories and he didn’t like it. He was starting to dream of Addy, her laugh and her smile. He would have to stay clear of her.
“I knew I’d never love again, because I couldn’t. My emotions weren’t normal; I was both haunted by them and cut off from them in a way that couldn’t be healed.“
What mistakes have they made to get them to this point? What secrets are they still keeping? Can they be forgiven or will it put everything they love at risk? You have to read this beautifully written book by Abbi Glines to find out.
“I want to protect you. From everything. I always have. But I don’t think I can protect you from me. I thought I could.“
You will keep reading The Best Goodbye until the last page with out putting it down, I know I did! Some of my favorites made appearances, like Rush, Blaire, Mase and Reese. I am so sad that we only have 1 more book to go before this series ends, but it has been amazing. I am giving this book 5 out of 5 stars and I can’t wait for Up in Flames, the last book in Rosemary Beach series.
