From #1 "New York Times "bestselling author Abbi Glines comes a brand-new Rosemary Beach novel about Tripp Newark and his hidden romantic past with Bethy Lowry.
In the eyes of the wealthy playboys who frequent Kerrington Country Club in Rosemary Beach, Tripp Newark is a hero. Under pressure from his parents to become a lawyer and lead a conservative, upper-class life, Tripp disappeared from town five years ago to travel the world, forfeiting the opportunity to inherit millions. Yet few know what he was really running from...
Bethy Lowry was unraveling long before her boyfriend drowned in a riptide trying to save her after she'd had one too many drinks--again. A trailer park kid working as a cart girl among the wealthy patrons of Kerrington Country Club, Bethy has always been impressionable. But five years ago, before she earned her reputation as a hard-drinking, easy girl, she had spent a single summer with Tripp Newark that changed her life forever...
I received this book from the author/publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
I love Abbi’s work so when I had the opportunity to read and review you Were Mine, I was doing cartwheels in my head. I’ve been dying for Tripp and Bethy’s story. Below is my review:
Gahhh! My heart! Abbi’s developed a real knack for hammering my heart the further we’ve gone in this series. Don’t let her sweet and innocent face fool you, while she eventually puts my heart back together, the road to get there is an angst filled one! I finished You Were Mine about 1 a.m. and seven hours later as I write this, I can feel my eyes starting to water again. I couldn’t help shedding tears here. There were individual moments with Bethy and Tripp (in present day and flashbacks from the past) that made me cry and then there were the moments with them together that turned on the waterworks. Never fear though, they were a mix of sad and happy tears.
Tripp quickly became a hero I loved; he got me in the prologue. He had me at
Our story wasn’t over. It would never be over. If I had to stay here and watch over her, even though she wouldn’t let me get near her, I would. For the rest of my motherfu*king life.
I loved that despite Bethy pushing him away and wanting nothing to do with him, Tripp was still determined to protect her and fight to make amends for the wrongs from years past. As a fan of this series, this one was an extremely bittersweet yet heartwarming story. I really liked being able to feel Bethy and Trip’s feelings for each other and for their situations in both in their past and their present. Like the previous books in the Rosemary Beach series, and Abbi’s books in general, You Were Mine is another addition to my book crack list.
