*** I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review ***
I was so excited and a little nervous when I realized that When You’re Back was going to my next read. You see I was excited to get more of the sexy Southern cowboy Mase Colt Manning as I fell in love with him after reading When You’re Gone. He became my second favorite Abbi man after Woods. (I love Woods) but I was nervous about what was in store for both him and Recess.
“I found her. I’d found the one. The one who would change my world”
“I was his. Everything about me belonged to Mase Colt Manning”
I have to say the drama and angst that was there, and there was some wasn't too bad. Yes, they did have a bit of a bumpy road as a couple of other characters were playing manipulative little games. And when trust, honesty, jealousy and insecurity issues come into play, it makes Mase and Reese doubt their relationship and what they really meant to each other. So it’s safe to say I was a little frustrated with them both at times.
“I love you so much I can’t breathe. You are my heart, Reese. My life”
“The man I trusted. The man I knew would never hurt me”
However, with what was going on you couldn’t deny how much Mase loved his girl and how much Reese loved her cowboy. In true Abbi style, the lust, passion, attraction, and the chemistry between Mase and Reese was undeniable these two had so much love for each other. And I love that! Loved watching Mase and Reese grow as a couple as they faced this bumpy road together.
“Loving her is worth…it’s worth it all. Living in fear of love isn’t living.”
When You’re Back was a heartwarming story about true love, trust, and growth, honesty, with a little drama and angst thrown in. There was a continuity error, but that didn’t take away my enjoyment of the book. I loved the little twist that Abbi threw in and, as a result, I went from having a mild dislike for a character to seeing them in a whole new light. Well-played Abbi!!
Overall, I enjoyed this one. There is something familiar about an Abbi book. I love her ability to draw me in every time, and I love the feeling I get when reading one of her books, and that I read most it with a grin on my face. I’m looking forward to reading the next book in the Rosemary Beach Series The Best Goodbye, which will be Blaire’s brother Captain’s story.
One last thing! I did spend a lot of time talking to one of my Co-blogger while reading this one about who was the man that was going to tame Nan. As I knew, Abbi had said the clues would be there, and I have to say that after playing the detective and finishing the book I pretty sure I know who it will be! I can’t wait to see if I’m right!!
