Author: Abbi Glines

Series: Rosemary Beach #10
Where I Got It: Amazon (FREE)

The year is 1992, and no one on the rock music scene is hotter than Kiro Manning, the lead singer of Slacker Demon. With a multi-platinum record, total ownership of the Billboard charts, sold-out concerts, and sinful amounts of money, Kiro can have anything—and anyone—he wants.

So when a dark-haired, conservative beauty rebuffs him at a concert after-party, his first thought is, “Who the hell does she think she is?” His second thought: “How do I make her mine?” Kiro has always loved a good challenge, but not every girl wants to get involved with a rock god. Especially this girl.

He let her go that night, but he never forgot her. And when they met again, he vowed not to give up again so easily.

As the world worshipped Kiro, he came to worship the girl, who became everything he never knew he needed. The only girl he would ever love. His Emily.

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Abbi Glines comes a heart-wrenching e-novella in the Rosemary Beach series about the star-crossed romance between Kiro and Emily, first introduced in Take a Chance. This is Abbi’s holiday gift to the devoted fans of the series.

Abbi Glines is a #1 New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal bestselling author of the Rosemary Beach, Sea Breeze, Vincent Boys, and Existence series. She has a new YA series coming out in the fall of 2015 titled The Field Party Series . She never cooks unless baking during the Christmas holiday counts. She believes in ghosts and has a habit of asking people if their house is haunted before she goes in it. She drinks afternoon tea because she wants to be British but alas she was born in Alabama. When asked how many books she has written she has to stop and count on her fingers. When she’s not locked away writing, she is reading, shopping (major shoe and purse addiction), sneaking off to the movies alone, and listening to the drama in her teenagers lives while making mental notes on the good stuff to use later. Don’t judge.


After reading Take a Chance and One More Chance I actually got super pumped for this book to come out. It was exciting to have a novella for Christmas as well as the fact that was about Kiro. And Kiro was the rocker that pretty much every girl in the Rosemary Beach series has seen having sex with some girl no one knew. But it was so sweet to go back and see how it was back then!

Kiro was so sweet and kind, only to Emily. But Emily put up a fight at first. I really liked Emily, but it kind of got on my nerves that she was "so good". It really bothers me when the lead heroine thinks she "isn't good enough to be here" or "no guy would ever want her from this party". And I hated Emily's cousin so much! However, past all that annoying stuff, this book caught my attention. From the minute I started it, I couldn't put it down! It gave me a book coma after reading it and right after I was done, I headed home to my bookshelf and grabbed an Abbi Glines book so that I didn't feel so hungover. It was so depressing when it was over! If you love Abbi Glines, this book will not be enough; you WILL want more because that's the amazing kind of author Abbi is.

Kiro was also a character I came to appreciate myself. I didn't think I would... but I did. In other books from Rosemary Beach I thought he was so stupid and annoying but once I read that one scene from One More Chance (you know what I'm talking about...) I was so excited to read this little novella.

Again, it was leave you wanting more and more.
