I had an urge to fix all her problems. Which was stupid. She was doing fine without me. But something about those big eyes…

If you’ve read Abbi Glines Rosemary Beach series, then you know Mase Colt-Manning. And you’ve probably been like me and impatiently waiting for his book for a while now. We meet this cowboy who happens to be Harlow Manning’s older brother in several of the previous books. Mase is Kiro Mannings son, but he didn’t grow up like Harlow or Rush Findlay. Mase’s mom and stepdad kept him grounded. They kept him on a ranch in Texas and he’s grown into a sexy cowboy. Mase finds himself in Rose

First you should know one thing about me, I am a huge Abbi Glines fan. I absolutely love her books and these characters, at this point I feel like I know these characters. Every book I read I fall more in love with them.

When I’m Gone is Mason’s story. Mason is Harlow and Nan’s brother, but he didn’t grow up in the limelight. He grew up in Texas with his mother. However, he is very close to his sister Harlow. He is in town staying at Nan’s house, visiting Harlow when he meets Reese

I have a confession to make. I haven't read an Abbi Glines book in two years. *Gasp!* After book 5 in this series, Twisted Perfection, (which I loved) I took a break and never found my way back. Mostly because of queen bitch Nan.

Well looks like Mase is giving Travis a run for his money and might just become my new Ultimate Book Boyfriend :D


But the jury is still out on that...

Until then let me tell you a little bit about this book.

I loved Mase and Reese's story and how caring and attentive Mase was with Resse after everything she's been through.

Mase is the son of rock legend Kiro Manning and one hot sexy cowboy :P

Okay, I have to admit, I've never been a big fan of Mase's...but AG managed to win me over. I think it had to do with the fact that I felt Mase is more of a young Kristen Ashley Alpha. He definitely had the moves and he just says the sweetest things especially with his "gottalickthatfreckle-itis".

Reese's story really pulls at your heart strings...and how could you not pull for her? She's had it rough and her self esteem is low, low, low. I loved how much Mase was able to help her but I especial

So if your caught up with Abbi Glines Rosemary Beach series, then you should know that Mace is Harlow's brother. And if you don't know who Harlow is then she is Kiro Mannings daughter. Then if you don't know who Kiro Mannings is then I suggest You go read the books like...Now!

Mace is Kiros son. As you might know that Kiro is famous, but mace didn't grow up in that life style. He grew up in a ranch in Texas. He grew up to be a pretty hot,

Dear Abbi,

That chapter. That very first chapter.


Technically, it was the prologue, but you completely ignited dynamite without even lighting a fuse. BOOM!

Attacking that issue right from the start gave this story more depth. It was risky, but it worked. I liked Reese, she had an innocence about her that was a complete contradiction from her roots. Her struggles created a truly unique character, one that was easy to root for. But, if I'm going to be completely hone

I honestly think Mase and Nan are in this story.....

Update: the reason I think this is because there is no one left to pair and I also think a guy like Mase that doesn't take shitc could control Nan. I mean, in some level I think nan needs someone who never puts her second. A boyfriend, someone who genuinely loves her, no matter who comes. And i think if this happens, it will be a test to see if nan can truly be redeemed. I like her, she's a bitch but I understand why she is the way she is. Hone

*I gave this audiobook a B+ for the content, B+ for Grace Grant's narration and B- for Jason Carpenter's at AudioGals*

If you’re looking for a feel good, “maid for the cowboy” romance where the big, tall and handsome, and – did I mention – rich, cowboy comes to the rescue of the damsel in distress, then look no further. Sporting one admirable alpha hero, with one undeniable protective streak, When I’m Gone will leave you with the feeling that every heroine, no matter how desperate and down on her

Abbi never disappoints me and When I'm Gone was no exception! Loved Mase. And loved Mase and Reese together even more! I think my book hangover is finally cured.
ARC provided by publisher in exchange of honest review

Let me first off say that I am huge Abbi Glines fan and I absolutely love the Rosemary Beach Series and when I saw When I'm Gone on my kindle, I practically devoured this book in one sitting. Abbi Glines is truly a gifted writer and story-teller. Her books are beautifully well written and crafted. She consumes you with her character's heartfelt stories and like always tug all the heartstrings. As always, Abbi Glines' books will leave you want
I finally read Mase's book! And it was everything that I wanted for him. I didn't realise that Reese was the girl that I waited for to match with Mase. She was strong despite her dark past and I admire her for that. It took some time for her to put her trust in Mase, but it was a great journey to read about. There was a tiny cliffhanger at the end, when "someone" showed up on Reese's apartment door. So I hope the second book about Mase and Reese is good as this one.

Ah finally. After a disaster ead for sea breeze, i pick ip When I' m Gone. Miss Glines have a knack to bring up a hero that is worthy of swooning. And Mace is no exception. And for Reese, it took a while for her to grow at me, but finally she did.

The story is much simpler that the previous book in the series.
Aside from Nan that i grow to love, i also think Jim deserves his own book. Jim is the hero of this story.

As always, Abbi Glines' books are guilty pleasure reads and definitely fast paced reads. Out of the Rosemary Beach series couples, Mase and Reese are one of my favorites. How can I not love Mase? He's super sweet and romantic. Hell, he's such gentleman. omfg. Dream guy.

I just swoon all over him. Damn this cowboy. Reese.. I love this lady. No words can express how persevere this woman is. I admire her so much.

SWOON WORTHY ROMANCE. I also love Jimmy! Such a quirky character. :D

Mase Colt-Manning & Reese Ellis

When we are first introduced to Mase, I admit I swooned. He is like the best big brother ever. And he was soooo protective... I just loved that.

So when we meet Reese and her past is haunting I was so glad she get Mase as a love interest if anyone deserves to have someone protect her its Reese.

Being a rock stars offspring isn’t easy but I don’t get the feeling Mase ever let it bother him too much, he has a great Momma and he has a great stepdad. So I

Because we have a fuckin' winner here!!! MASE is the sweetest fuckin man in Rosemary Beach.. panties down err' HANDS DOWN!


Overall the story is okay.. its kinda your typical Abbi Glines plot. We get an alpha male.. heroine who is beautiful but (she doesn't know it!) so she's kinda insecure.. typical misunderstanding.. heck! to be honest, nothing really special to write off other than MASE. lol

So I'm slapping this as 5++ STARS

First… AAAGGGGHHHHHH!! Hi guys of Rosemary Beach I missed you!!! Okay, now that that’s out of the way; I loved this! Of course I tend to love much of Abbi Glines work. I was worried that this series was starting to get stale. You would think that after eleven books I would I tire of it all. Nope, Nuh-uh, not happening. It is still fun, fresh and hella sexy.

Whenever Abbi Glines brings out a Rosemary Beach novel, I have to click... I mean how could I not.

It took me a while to read this book. One of the reasons was that I wanted to wait until the conclusion was out and the main reason was that I was still gutted from reading Kiro's Emily. That book cut me open and I since Mase is his son I feared (and hoped) that there will be a lot of Kiro in this book.

But once I started reading I wondered why I waited so long! It was great. Maybe because I had no exceptations and didn't really care about Mase. I'm still not #crushinghard on him, but

I don't care if there were parts in When I'm Gone that were predictable because I just love (love, love, love) Reese and Mase together, the Rosemary Beach series and the other characters in it. It is nice to go back from time to time to a setting/world that I love, seeing the other characters from the previous books interacting and knowing what there life is now after their particular books have ended. If I have to compare it to the Sea Breeze series, I have to say that the story lines and chara ...more

In an attempt to declutter my kindle (and as part of my own reading challenge for 2018), I am reading books that have been sitting on it for far too long. When I'm Gone is one of those books. For the most part, I really liked this one. In fact, Mase and Reese are my second favorite couple of the series with Blair and Rush being my first loves.

I've really enjoyed Abbi Glines for a few years now, and some of her books are absolute favorites of mine, but I think I'm going to take a break from her writing. All of her books are becoming rather formulatic, and while that's fine, something about this insta-love/lust scenarios combined with reallly short (and frankly, overpriced) stories is not working for me anymore.

Mase was sweet at the beginning, but then his character became a watered down version of some of the oth
