So, like, dude. I totally got an early copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. And also because I'm friends with the author and so like, I texted her and said, "Hey, author. Give me this book. Like yesterday, man."
And she said, "Dude. I'll totally send you this gnarly book yesterday."
And so like, I read this book the day before I even asked if I could read it.
If you're like a total Nan-hater, you should read this book. Because dude.

This one's a little different and definitely not your usual Rosemary Beach New Adult romance. Of course, it's Nan's book so we shouldn't be surprised, however, it has a few ugly twist and turns and things we were not expecting.

Nan is nobody's favorite or at least nobody that I know. She's mean, she's nasty and she's done some pretty horrible things. She pushes people away at every turn. But there has been one or two instances where we've seen a different side of her. I wish I could say we

I hated Nan. She was a total cow to me. Didn’t want her book. Didn’t want her to get her HEA because she was just spiteful. Why would you want the villain of the book to get her HEA? Omg was I wrong. After taking fooooorevvver to read this I’m so glad I did.

I loved her! I loved this book she completely redeemed herself and her story was perfect. The three way drama between her, Major and Cope fit the story perfectly. I’m glad we got to see Nan grow from what she thought she wanted out of life t

”I was expendable. I always had been.”

I think fans will expect some big type of redemption and/or an aha moment to connect with Nan, the evil villain of Rosemary Beach. You know like with Kiro’s story? Something to make us like her and connect and maybe even forgive her for her past bitchery? Well, sadly the answer to the question as to whether or not Nan redeems herself in her book is…


However, the story was exciting, sexy, and drama filled. Abbi gifts two hero’s povs al

Y'all know I absolutely adore the Rosemary Beach series and it pains me greatly to say this, but this book was honestly a disaster. On the first sentence of the blurb it literally calls the main character a slut. -_- HOW IS THIS OKAY????????????
We were finally getting Nan's side of the story! I was so excited! But reading from Nan's point of view felt like a joke. It wasn't believable to me AT ALL. This Nan was COMPLETELY different from the Nan in the other books. She didn't have the same charac

Warning: spoilers abound.

Abbi Glines has made no secret about how fast she can write a book. That’s great and all, truly it is, but the problem is that it shows. The lack of quality was immediately evident with this latest release. There were plot holes, inconsistencies, and things left entirely unexplored, like, say, the vague, poorly built world revolving around the whole crime lord plot line. As a consumer, I can’t help but to wish that she would take the time necessary to put out a quality p

Villains were created, not born. That was something I’d come to know as a fact.

Everyone who’s read Abbi’s Rosemary Beach series probably has some strong feelings about Nan. She has been portrayed as a villain since the first book. I’m not going to lie, there was a large part of me that didn’t want to read this book. I wasn’t sure IF or HOW Abbi would redeem this woman who’s been so awful to so many characters I’ve loved. But alas, I am not a quitter and I’ve read every Abbi book

Nan. I think I hated her from that first moment with Blaire, even when I didn’t exactly know who she was. Then the hate continued to grow with each new story and mistreated heroine. When Abbi announced she was writing this book I was like, nope, no way, not going there. Then I thought really Beverly, you have read all Abbi’s books you know you will read it.

I wasn’t a Blaire or a Harlow. I didn’t inspire men to want to change for me.

Girls were powerless when it came to pretty things.

Those might be the truest words in this book. I was once again lured in by a pretty thing, a pretty cover, a fancy blurb. I caved and read a book based on that blurb even after I swore that I was long ago finished with this series. Fool me once, shame on you... fool me 15 times, the damn shame is all mine.

This story lacked any real substance. I didn't get to know Nan the way I hoped I would, the way I should have in Up in Flames. Everything

Let me get something off of my chest first. I liked Nan, like REALLY liked her as a character in this book. Well done Abbi for taking the villain and showing her readers the person Nan really is.

"I wanted to be someone's Harlow. Or Blaire. But I'd always just be Nan. And Nan wasn't enough. I never had been, and I was done trying to be."

If you've read anything in the Rosemary Beach series, you know who Nan is. She's the villain, the slut, the bitch. After years of not being wanted,
This was just brilliant

I was super surprised with this book I was actually worried that I wasn't goin to like it with Nan the super bitch being the main character but it was just great I luvd it i got al the answers to why Nan is the way she is an I actually felt for her Ye she as al the material things she wants but she just wants someone to luv her an not to use her for her money or her dad

I have been waiting for Nan's story since she was first introduced in Fallen Too Far. Throughout the series, she has been portrayed as a raging bitch from hell, and I really wanted to know why. I'm a sucker for a story of redemption.

Honestly, it wasn't everything I was expecting it to be. Better in some ways, and not in others. I haven't wrapped my head/heart around it yet, and I don't believe this is the end of the series. There are a few more loose ends I'd like to see tied - a certain charac

"It was me and my stupid need to be wanted. To belong to someone. For one man on this earth to believe I was worth it. I wanted to be someone’s Harlow. Or Blaire. But I’d always just be Nan. And Nan wasn’t enough. I never had been, and I was done trying to be."

I am not a huge fan of Nan for she is a total B in the entire series. Still, I'm looking forward to read her story because she deserves a happy ending. After finishing this book last night, it left me with mixed feelings. It has a good twist and I didn't expect it at all. I am blindsided with the whole situation and Abbi did a great job on it. Sure she got her happy ending but I'm totally not convinced with the romance happened and I'm not going to tell you who she ended up with... ;)

Finally, Nan Dillion gets her day in the sun and I have been waiting a long time for it. However, Nan herself summarized her character best by saying
"I wasn't Blaire or Harlow. I didn't inspire men to want to change for me."
You're damn right Nan. You lacked the goodness that those girls had and it was a disappointing series ending book. After reading this book, I still don’t like you one bit.
We met Nan, Rush's awful little sister in book 1 and I was ready for Abbi Glines to redeem
Actual rating 2.5 stars

I have been a long time Rosemary Beach and Abbi Glines fan, starting my journey at the very beginning with Rush and Blaire. I've always been so excited when a new book is released in this series and devour them whole. The entire cast of characters holds a special place in my heart and ones I like to revisit often. I'm the first to admit to being a HUGE Nan-Hater this entire journey. She's been that nasty thorn in your side that you can't dig out no matter how hard you try.

Bitch. Slut. Villain. Evil. Manipulator. Spoiled. Rich girl. All these description are synonymous to the most hated person of the Rosemary Beach Series. Well guess what all you Nan haters out there, I f*cking love Nan and in true Abbi Glines’ fashion, she wrote a story that was raw, vulnerable, deep, and showed a whole new side to Nan.

I honestly was never a true Nan hater. I have always felt that she was misunderstood and just neede

Wow! I can’t believe I actually liked this book. I’ve hated Nan’s character throughout this series and had no desire to read her story. However, it was available to read through the library (I would never pay $9 for an ebook! What the heck up with publishers raising the ebook prices?!) so I gave it a try and actually liked it. I felt the author stayed true to Nan’s character while allowing her to finally grow up emotionally. What I also liked about this book was the hero wasn’t

I`ve been dying to read this book since it was announced and I have to say I`m dissapointed. I still couldn`t put it down, I still liked the story but, especially for the last book of the series and for the promissed villain redeemed, it was lacking, superficial and rushed... as usually with Abbi`s books, why not take more time to really make us know the new guy, to know the real Nan... it liked it, but It could have been so much better. ...more

I hope this chick finally finds someone to love her the way she needs to be loved so she can stop being the evil bitch of the series. Lol

I must say, there were points in this book when I thought I wasn't gonna like the ending but I WAS COMPLETELY WRONG. I loved it and I'm so happy Nan's evil, crazy ass finally turned into a human being with a heart. The Major thing broke my heart but then I found hope to read about him in a future book. Highly recommend!!!!!M

I'm not really sure what to say about Nan's book.
I loved it. Mainly because it was the last book in the series and I loved the series, so I just had to love it. And I did. BUT...
One would think the not-loving part of the book would be Nan.
But she was surprisingly the part I loved most. Nan and Cope.
Major got majorly on my nerves with his 'acting-like-an-idiot-seventeen-year-old'.
I think with another 100 pages and a lot more depth, this story would have been so much better.

Wow, just wow. I don’t even know where to begin. I just finished an all day binge read and I am sitting here in a glow. This book will grip both Nan lovers and haters. You get to have an insight into her maniacal mind is refreshing in a way I never expected. I mean, let’s get real here; those that are hurt the most tend to lash out the fiercest. Nan is no exception to that life rule.

But what starts as one relationship turns into another. I refuse to give spoilers. Refuse. And if you are a fan, p

I admit I haven't read the last few books in this series. Like most, I was never a big fan of Nan, but damn it I was curious to read her story. I knew that I would probably never love Nan but I was at least hoping I could learn to like or understand her. Maybe I went into this story with too many expectations but I am beyond disappointed in this book. Nan's story was just over the top, soap opera - style drama. There was very little depth to the storyline and at times it was simply unbelievable. ...more

Abbi Glines wanted to end the series with a bang? Well guess what, she damn well did. No, scratch that. That wasn't even a bang—it was a major EXPLOSION of wits, of heart, of feelings. Because this book right here? It's a thousand times more intense and different from all the other books in the Rosemary Beach series. I was completely blown away.
