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...
Ahhh, we get Captain’s story. I liked him from the minute he was introduced in When You’re Back. He’s mysterious, tough, and has a touch of softness to him. I really liked Rose too. She’s devoted to her daughter, and goes through so much to make sure she’s okay. She takes steps to make sure everything is done in her daughter’s best interest.
The tension between Captain and Rose is so very evident. Even when they try to fight it. I loved seeing those stolen glances, and heated arguments. This book didn’t have as many sexy scenes as her previous books, but I was completely okay with that. This story didn’t need it. I loved the devotion of all the characters, and I NEED Major to have a book. We are left with a little inkling as to what he’s doing in Rosemary Beach.
The sparks definitely fly in The Best Goodbye, and I can’t wait to see what happens to the rest of the crew in Rosemary Beach. The wait will be torture!
