Charmed Souls FOR WEB

They say blood is thicker than water, but I was never proud of mine. A female born into the Kamlock bloodline was destined to possess three things they couldn’t change—a crazy as hell mother, an unfair amount of beauty, and a Charmed soul that was as black as night.

All a Kamlock woman ever desired in life was to use her beauty to destroy wealthy men and take their riches. A century had passed since a generation of Kamlock sisters had been anything other than gold diggers.

All I ever wanted was to be free of them. I knew I couldn’t change my cursed birth, but I could change its legacy. I had a job, I had friends, and I was slowly gaining my independence.

Until Rathe Scott crashed into my life and tore it apart.

He made me feel what I had spent my entire life never wanting to feel. He brought out a darkness I’d not known was inside me. And just when I thought I was becoming everything I had sworn I would never become…

He was gone.

The fifth book in the #1 New York Times bestselling Field Party series—a southern soap opera with football, cute boys, and pick-up trucks—from USA TODAY bestselling author Abbi Glines.

Ryker Lee is finally enjoying his senior year—he has great friends, hangs out with hot girls, and is on track to get a football scholarship that will set him up for college. Despite this, a small part of him wonders if there’s more to life than parties and meaningless hookups—and if football even means as much to him as it does to his fellow teammates. And when he meets the new girl at school, his world totally changes…

Aurora McClay is new to Lawton. She’s grateful that her twin brother, Hunter, is star of the football team and can help her adjust to her new school, but she’s not grateful at how overprotective he is over every person she meets. Just because she is deaf does not mean people have to treat her differently. When she meets Ryker Lee, the two of them spark an instant and intense chemistry, one that proves to be controversial not only because of Ryker’s reputation as a player, but also because of Aurora and Hunter’s father’s bigoted views about who Aurora can and can’t date.

Aurora and Ryker know in their hearts that they are meant for each other. But can their relationship endure the turmoil of rumors and prejudice?

Michel’s Review

I always look forward to August because Abbi Glines usually releases a new book in The Field Party series. I love the high school “Friday Night Lights” themed books and Abbi’s Field Party series stands out among the others.

Making A Play is quite different from the other books in the series because it deals with physical issues, social issues, and contemporary peer issues.  It gives an honest insight into today’s high school environments as well as small southern town life.

Aurora McClay has moved to Lawton to live with her father and twin brother after their mother gets remarried and moves away. She had attended a high school for the deaf but now finds herself entering a mainstream high school that her brother attends. She’s excited but knows it’s going to be challenging. The one thing she never imagined would happen was that her brother would be extremely overly protective to the point of being obnoxious. She never expected to meet a boy that would capture her complete attention on the first day of school. It’s too bad this boy is completely off limits as far as her brother and father are concerned. Ryker Lee not only has a bad reputation as a player but also has the wrong skin color. Her heart wants what it wants and love always finds a way.

Ryker Lee is looking forward to his senior year. He never imagined he would experience love at first sight let alone fall for just one girl. It’s not his style until he meets a different kind of girl, Aurora McClay, his teammates twin sister. It doesn’t matter if Aurora is deaf, he will learn to sign. It doesn’t matter if her brother hates him, he won’t back down. Getting past her father’s overbearing control and racist attitude is a challenge. No obstacle will turn his heart away.

They both will have to withstand all the obstacles in their paths but both are strong, determined individuals who know what they want. They want each other.

Abbi Glines did a fantastic job with this book. Ryker and Aurora’s relationship was based on respect while still being sweet and romantic. I am in awe how Abbi delivered the story which dealt with a physical handicap and sensitive social issues while staying on a neutral playing field. This made Aurora and Ryker come to life in a much bigger way.

Making A Play by Abbi Glines is the best book in the Field Party Series. Read It!

After The Game

Field Party Series – Book 3

Genre: Mature Young Adult

By Abbi Glines

Buy: Amazon

Blurb

Two years ago, Riley Young fled from Lawton, Alabama. After accusing the oldest Lawton son, Rhett, of rape, everyone called her a liar and she had no option but to leave. Now she’s back, but she’s not at Lawton High finishing up her senior year. She’s at home raising the little girl that no one believed was Rhett’s.

Rhett is off at college living the life he was afraid he’d lose with Riley’s accusation, so Riley agrees to move back to Lawton so she and her parents could take care of her grandmother, who is suffering from Alzheimer’s. But the town still hasn’t forgotten their hate for her, and she hasn’t forgotten the way they turned on her when she needed them most.

When town golden boy Brady Higgens finds Riley and her daughter, Bryony, stranded on the side of the road in a storm, he pulls over and gives them a ride. Not because he cares about Riley, of course, but because of the kid.

But after the simple car ride, he begins to question everything he thought he knew. Could Brady believe Riley and risk losing everything?

__________________________________________

Michel’s Review

After The Game is the third book in the Field Party Series by Abbi Glines.  If you are a fan of high school football, small southern towns, and teenage angst, this is the perfect book to read.  It reminds of the popular television series Friday Night Lights.  This book can be read as a stand alone but I think it’s better in series order.

The town pariah, Riley Young, has returned home with her family.  She came back a different girl than the one who fled in shame.  She’s returned home a mother of an eighteen month old baby.  She’s not happy with her return but her family needs her there to help take care of her grandmother who is suffering from Alzheimers.  She can survive the hostility, nasty looks, and cold shoulders for her family.  She’s not returning to the hostile school environment.  That ended when she gave birth.  She’s home schooled and the only thing that matters is her precious daughter.  She has plans for her life and hopes for a better future with her daughter.

Getting caught in a rain storm once again changes her life in Lawton, Alabama.  Brody Higgins, the town’s golden boy and star quarterback stops to give her a ride.  Rather than make her daughter suffer, she accepts the ride.  Thus begins an unlikely friendship.  She never knew how lonely and isolated she was until Brody became determined to be her friend.

Brody Higgens regrets the way he treated Riley Young a few years ago.  It’s looking like she was telling the truth all along and now she’s the one paying the price for a crime committed against her.  He’s no longer a follower, he’s a leader.  He’s going to change everyone’s perceptions of Riley.  First he has to deal with the explosion in his personal life. He’s falling apart and he may need a friend more than Riley does.

Spending time with Riley is soothing and feels right.  Putting his life back together seems easier with her in the picture.  The question is will it still seem right when they embark on their future lives as adults rather than high school teenagers?

Abbi Glines once again captured the high school spirit and teenage angst .  I loved every moment of this book.

Blurb

To everyone who knows him, West Ashby has always been that guy: the cocky, popular, way-too-handsome-for-his-own-good football god who led Lawton High to the state championships. But while West may be Big Man on Campus on the outside, on the inside he’s battling the grief that comes with watching his father slowly die of cancer.

Two years ago, Maggie Carleton’s life fell apart when her father murdered her mother. And after she told the police what happened, she stopped speaking and hasn’t spoken since. Even the move to Lawton, Alabama, couldn’t draw Maggie back out. So she stayed quiet, keeping her sorrow and her fractured heart hidden away.

As West’s pain becomes too much to handle, he knows he needs to talk to someone about his father—so in the dark shadows of a post-game party, he opens up to the one girl who he knows won’t tell anyone else.

West expected that talking about his dad would bring some relief, or at least a flood of emotions he couldn’t control. But he never expected the quiet new girl to reply, to reveal a pain even deeper than his own—or for them to form a connection so strong that he couldn’t ever let her go…

Willa can’t erase the bad decisions of her past that led her down the path she’s on now. But she can fight for forgiveness from her family. And she can protect herself by refusing to let anyone else get close to her.

High school quarterback and town golden boy Brady used to be the best of friends with Willa—she even had a crush on him when they were kids. But that’s all changed now: her life choices have made her a different person from the girl he used to know.

Gunner used to be friends with Willa and Brady, too. He too is larger than life and a high school football star—not to mention that his family basically owns the town of Lawton. He loves his life, and doesn’t care about anyone except himself. But Willa is the exception—and he understands the girl she’s become in a way no one else can.

As secrets come to light and hearts are broken, these former childhood friends must face the truth about growing up and falling in love…even if it means losing each other forever.

Because of Lila

By Abbi Glines

Synopsis

Prim, proper, classic good girl, and her least favorite label – icy.

Lila Kate Carter has heard them all. The last one, being the newest. She is not icy. She just doesn’t care for Cruz Kerrington and his spoiled, selfish, careless ways. That doesn’t make her icy, that makes him a jerk!

Tired of being labeled and doing what is expected of her, Lila Kate leaves Rosemary Beach, Florida ready for an adventure. Wanting to recreate herself, find a new path, and become something more.

Eli Hardy is tired of women who always act the same, do the same thing and expect the same thing. He’s ready to swear off women until he can get the rest of his life together.

Two weeks into his no-women-rule he meets Lila. She’s so damn sweet and polite. Like she walked right out of an etiquette book. But he’d already been drunk before she walked in so there was a good chance she might not be as stunning and perfect as he thinks. He’s just too drunk to worry about that.

The next morning, he swears he can still smell her on his skin. He just can’t remember why or what happened after that third dance.

Their worlds are about to collide, and so are the secrets and lies.

Synopsis:

#1 New York Times bestselling author Abbi Glines returns to Rosemary Beach one last time in this highly-anticipated finale.

Spoiled. Selfish. Rich girl. Villain. Slut.

As the Prada-clad bad girl of Rosemary Beach, Nan Dillon has been called every vile name under the hot summer sun. Some of her reputation is deserved—she’s never had to worry about anything but maintaining her perfect figure and splitting Daddy’s private jet with her brother, Rush.

But Nan is far from happy. Rush has another kid on the way and doesn’t have time to catch up with his sister. Grant, the last guy she truly cared about, chose to be with her half-sister, Harlow, instead of her. And Harlow, who has never gotten over the way Nan treated her when she first moved to town, remains distant.

So when Major asks her out, she jumps at the chance to date the gorgeous charmer. Though she doesn’t know much about the sweet-talking Texan, and though it’s clear he doesn’t want to be exclusive, dating him beats hanging out with vapid socialites or watching Netflix alone at home.

For a while, Nan deals with Major’s playboy ways, but after he burns her one too many times, she takes off for an impromptu wild weekend in Vegas. There, she meets Gannon, a darkly seductive and oh-so-dangerous businessman who knows exactly how to handle her.

With Major asking for a second chance and Gannon haunting her dreams, Nan has to decide who to give her heart to. But what she doesn’t realize is that these players are involved in a much bigger game—and they’re already two moves ahead of her.

Michel’s Review

Am I still a NAN HATER…

The Rosemary Beach Series by Abbi Glines has been one of my favorite series since the first book released in January 2014.  I have devoured each book in this series.  I have stood in long lines at author events to get my paperback copies signed.  Each of the couples and the crew from Rosemary Beach have captivated me… except for Nan.  She is the J.R. Ewing or Alexis Carrington of Rosemary Beach.  She has been the consistent villian throughout the series.  There is nothing likable about her character at all.  So why would readers want her to have a book of her own?  I would say because they are just waiting for the train to hit Nan head on.

When a writer creates a character like Nan, it’s almost impossible to convince the readers that she deserves a happily ever after.  Towards the later part of the series Nan’s character starts to evolve.  Readers are beginning to see the multiple layers that make Nan the person she is.  Is it possible for Nan to change the core person she is?  That’s where the author has her greatest challenge.  First of all to change her into a good lovable being would be more or less slapping the readers in the face saying they are gullible and clueless.  It would make everything readers conceived into a lie.  Thank goodness Abbi Glines had the insight not to insult her readers but at the same time have the balls to give Nan a story that readers could embrace.

Nan didn’t change, she evolved into something tolerable.  Readers got an in depth look at what made Nan tick.  They got a first hand look into her insecurities, hateful reactions, and selfish choices.  They also got to see her real issues and where they began.  The girl was basically abandoned the moment she came into the world.  The ones that were supposed to love and protect her blatantly ignored her existence and used money as a way to cover up their abandonment.  The only person that really ever loved Nan was her brother Rush.  It’s no wonder she desperately tried to control and hang onto him.  He was the only good thing in her life she ever had.  Her bitterness and resentments were a coat of armor that she would never be able to shed because the little girl buried deep inside must never surface.  She became strong because of that armor.  She survived the only way she knew how.  After many years of bitterness and hate, she’s growing weary.  The people in her world are changing for the better, moving on with their lives and she is stuck in the hateful world she created.  She wants what they have but is clueless how to obtain it.  Each time she thinks she’s close to obtaining it’s always disappointment that follows.

Nan and Major have had a thing going on but it’s not really a relationship.  They have formed an odd friendship.  Each time Nan thinks that Major is coming around he only ends up disappointing her.  He discards her like everyone else in her life has.  When she’s finally had enough, she does what she does best…moves on to the next mindless party.  Heading to Vegas to lick her wounds leads her to the next chapter in her life.  She meets a mysterious, sexy, dangerous man.  He has a way of making her feel like she is the only woman in the world.  He can control her outbursts, appreciate her worldliness, and make her body sing.  He also has secrets that could destroy her and when he does, her life in Rosemary Beach doesn’t look so bad.  Too bad her heart doesn’t know it.

By this time Major has realized the errs of his ways.  He regrets his mistakes with Nan and wants another chance to prove himself to her.  He will get his chance but it won’t be the ending he was expecting.

The rest of the story will take the reader by surprise!  Rosemary Beach is ending Up In Flames.

Am I still a NAN HATER? I still don’t like her but I do understand her and don’t begrudge her a happily ever after.

When I’m Gone

Rosemary Beach Series – Book 11

By Abbi Glines

b3f54-goodreads-button

Synopsis

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Abbi Glines comes the next new adult novel in the Rosemary Beach series, in which we meet Mase, a Texas heartthrob first introduced in Take a Chance who comes to Rosemary Beach to stir things up.

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?

Michel’s Review

It’s hard to believe that this is the eleventh book in the Rosemary Beach series by Abbi Glines.  This series has captured the readers hearts.  The dynamic characters from this series not only find their happily ever after, they have formed a deep bond of friendship and family.  They look out for one another, protect the ones they love, and always have each others backs.

Mase Colt Manning may not be from Rosemary Beach, but he has a very important part in the lives of those that are.  He is the illegitimate son of Kiro Manning, the lead singer of Slacker Demon.  He is very close with his half sister Harlow.  He has grown up with Rush Finlay and become very good friends.  He has been around Grant and Nan all his life.  He is a Texan that can fit in with country club gang at Rosemary Beach as easily as he fits in at his ranch.

While visiting his sister Harlow in Rosemary Beach, he meets Reese Ellis.  She is his other half sister, Nan’s, maid.  When an accident occurs in Nan’s home, it brings Reese to Mase’s attention.  He’s determined to get to know her.

Reese is unlike any girl that Mase has met.  She’s kind, witty, shy, and beautiful.  She seems to be harboring a lot of insecurities and secrets.  When Mase finds out one of her secrets, he’s determined to help her overcome it.  He wants her to realize that she is just as good as any of the other people from Rosemary Beach.

They form a close friendship that is evolving into a relationship.  Life has a way of throwing obstacles that can destroy their new found love.  One of those obstacles is his sister Nan. She has a way of poisoning everything that comes into her path.

Reese will have to overcome her fears, her insecurities, and her past.  If she can do this she will be able to experience the love of a lifetime with Mase.

As always, Abbi Glines wrote another fantastic book that made not only Rosemary Beach crew come to life, but also those quirky relatives in Texas.  I absolutely loved Mase.  He is the kind of man every woman can fall in love with.

When I’m Gone by Abbi Glines was a fantastic addition to the Rosemary Beach series.  I am looking forward to seeing who is up next on the Rosemary Beach roster.  And yes…I am still a Nan hater!

You Were Mine

Rosemary Beach Series- Book 9

By Abbi Glines

Synopsis

Gossip is the ultimate currency in Rosemary Beach, but Bethy and Tripp have managed to keep one big secret to themselves.

Eight years ago, Tripp Newark was dating a rich girl he didn’t like and was on his way to Yale—and a future he didn’t want. The only way he could escape his predictable life would be to give up the money and power that came with his family’s name. And that’s exactly what he planned to do. At the end of the summer, he was going to ride off on his Harley and never look back.

That was before he met Beth Lowry.

It was only supposed to be a summer fling. She was a sixteen-year-old trailer-park girl who served drinks to his friends at Kerrington Country Club. They didn’t run in the same social circles. No one even knew they were friends, let alone lovers. Yet, for one summer, Bethy became his entire world.

But he couldn’t give up on his plan. He needed to leave Rosemary Beach, but he vowed he would come back for her.

Problem was, by the time he came back—years later than promised—it was too late. His cousin, Jace, had already claimed the woman he loved. . . .

5 starMichel’s Review

Fans of the Rosemary Beach series have been biting at the bits for If You Were Mine to release.  It was well worth the wait and I know readers are going to be thrilled with this book.

From the very beginning of the Rosemary Beach series, Bethy Lowry has been a very prominent character throughout the series.  She is the happy go lucky, party girl, that works at the Kerrington Country Club. She has befriended the staff members, become a part of the elite crowd, and proved her loyalty to all those she loves.  Her outgoing personality has captivated the readers.    We have watched her go from a wild girl to a mature young woman madly in love with one of the golden members, Jace Newark.  Her relationship with Jace went from carefree hookups to a serious committed relationship.  They were very happy until Tripp Newark, Jace’s cousin came back to Rosemary Beach.  Bethy’s behavior begins to spiral out of control.  She is reverting back to her irresponsible ways and her drinking is out of control.  When tragedy strikes and Jace loses his life trying to save Bethy’s life it sends her into a very dark place.  She has lost the love of her life and feels responsible.  She feels like she betrayed Jace and her friends.  She has withdrawn from life and seperated herself from her friends.  She doesn’t feel like she deserves their friendship.  She doesn’t feel she deserves love or redemption from her mistakes.  She is haunted by the past and has condemned herself to being it’s prisoner.  What caused  her behavior to spiral out of control?  What secrets was she hiding.  Only Tripp Newark knows.  Now he is back in Rosemary Beach and determined to make Bethy whole once again.

Tripp Newark was a golden son of the Rosemary Beach elite.  He had the perfect future planned out by his family.  His wealth, prestigous family, education, and social standings guaranteed he would live the golden life.  But those were not his dreams, they were expectations that he could not live up to.  Eight years ago he had to choose between his family and his dreams for the future.  The one thing he didn’t count on was meeting a girl that would capture his heart completely.  When he made his decision to leave Rosemary Beach behind, he had to leave the love of his life.  The damage and scars he left behind are beyond repair.

Tripp returned to Rosemary Beach to find the one woman he has always loved is engaged to his cousin.  To make matters worse his cousin loses his life trying to save that girl.  Tripp wants Bethy to heal and come back to the world of living.  It doesn’t matter that she no longer loves him.  He just wants her to be a whole person again.

As Tripp and Bethy’s past is revealed and a hidden secrets are unraveled, they will both be shattered.  They will also find their way back to one another.  They will find that love never really dies. Love comes in many different forms.  They will find there is room in their hearts for love once again.

This time around Tripp is going to do everything right.  This time around Bethy is going to forgive herself and learn her self worth.  This time around they are going to do things the right way.  This time around is forever.

The Rosemary Beach series has been building up to this moment, this couple, and their secrets.  The big revelation at the end of the previous books left readers dying to know the whole story.  This book was emotional and grabbed my heart in so many ways.  It was the perfect story for these two charismatic characters.

The readers will get more of all the beloved characters from this series. They will see our favorite little ones growing into charming little people.  They will see the Rock God Grandpa wrapped around a toddlers finger and loving every moment.  They will see Grant flourish with fatherhood.  They will get to know Thad a little better.  Best of all, they will get to witness the wedding vows between Della and Woods.  The one thing that was glorious in all this was that “Nasty Nan” was completely absent from this book.  We didn’t have to deal her rotten attitude.  We got to see all our beloved characters from Rosemary Beach have a wonderful time without her spoiling the moment.

I absolutely love the Rosemary Beach series.  I cannot wait for the next book.  I think Abbi Glines has some great surprises for fans of this series.

I highly recommend If You Were Mine.  If you have not read the Rosemary Beach series, don’t put it off.  It is a guaranteed fantastic reading experience.

Synopsis

Grant Carter did everything in his power to convince Harlow Manning that he was a good guy. More than a smooth-talker and someone she could trust. He had to overcome his reputation as a playboy, and his history with Harlow’s half-sister, Nan, a woman with a reputation of her own.

Harlow had taken the chance, falling hard and fast for the guy who thrilled her with his all-consuming desire. After a lifetime of avoiding bad boys like Grant, she had opened herself to the possibilities of love…

But a life-changing secret has torn them apart, and now Grant and Harlow must decide if they have enough fight to make it work – or if the pain of betrayal has permanently destroyed their future.

Michel’s Review

The Rosemary Beach gang is back in Abbi Glines latest release of One More Chance. It is the sequel to Take A Chance and features Grant Carter and Harlow Manning.

Readers were left with a cliffhanger in Take A Chance. Grant and Harlow had finally come together and developed a heated relationship. Grant’s insecurities and fears about death and losing someone he loves destroyed their relationship and drove Harlow away. We were left with this couple separated and very little chance of reconciliation. Readers were devastated and left wanting this couple to resolve their issues.

One More Chance is the perfect title for the sequel of Take A Chance. The book opens with Grant groveling through phone messages. Harlow has disappeared from Rosemary Beach and Grant wants to make amends and fix his mistakes.

Harlow had to escape Rosemary Beach and the paparazzi. It is no longer a secret that she is rocker Kiro Manning’s daughter. She is heartbroken. She also has a secret that Grant will never accept. She is pregnant. With her heart condition this pregnancy could kill her. She is afraid to tell Grant because of his fears. She knows he will not want her to have this baby. She is determined to give this baby life, even at the cost of her own.

Surprisingly Grant grew the backbone and strength he needed to support Harlow. Although he did not want her to have this baby, he overcame his fears and came to terms with fatherhood. The care and devotion he gave Harlow was breathtaking. He became the man that readers wanted him to be.

Harlow and Grant’s new life together is not easy. They are having to deal with Harlow’s health issues, her pregnancy, blending their lives together, the paparazzi, Kiro Manning and his issues, and the people from Rosemary Beach. This couple pulls together and shows the readers how amazing their love for one another is. They are ready to show their baby the love they have built together. They are going to be the perfect family. That is if Harlow survives.

Grant and Harlow are facing the hardest challenge two lovers will ever face. They are both strong people and have built a very strong foundation.

I absolutely loved the conclusion to Grant and Harlow’s story. Through the phone messages and letters, Abbi Glines delivered a story that will engage all of your emotions. Not only did we see a beautiful romance grow into a strong lifetime love. We witnessed the growth of these two characters as individuals as well as a couple. Through their phone messages and letters we got to get inside their hearts.

I loved that we got to see the strength and support from the gang in Rosemary Beach. Even Nan gave us some big surprises. New characters were introduced into their world. We also got a little build up of what is to come next in the Rosemary Beach series.

I absolutely love the Rosemary Beach series and cannot wait for more. Tripp and Bethy are going to steal our hearts just like their friends have.

I highly recommend One More Chance and the Rosemary Beach Series by Abbi Glines.
