From #1 New York Times bestselling author Abbi Glines comes the next sizzling novel in the Rosemary Beach series, featuring well-known playboy and Blaire’s half brother, Captain.

The look on Rose’s face had screamed that she was hiding something. Hell, she’d practically run away from me. There was something to that. I knew there was...

After ten years in the employ of a mysterious crime boss, River “Captain” Kipling is ready to leave his sordid past—and his cover occupation as an upscale restaurateur—behind him. The only thing standing in the way of his “retirement” is his commitment to launch a new restaurant in the resort town of Rosemary Beach. With his sister, Blaire, nearby, Captain can delay his dream of running a humble bar on the waterfront, but the unwanted attentions of his head server, Elle, have him itching to get out.

Until he notices Rose Henderson, the new server at the restaurant. All he knows about the pretty redhead with the cute glasses is that she’s a hardworking single mom from Oklahoma. But there’s something overly familiar about her laugh...something strange about the way she looks at Captain...


  • Very anti climatic!

    The story had a lot to offer but the execution failed for me.
  • River....

    This is best emotional story that if you don't read it, you are missing out big time! I loved each and every second of reading this book. It's too good of a story to pass up. Read it!
  • Good storyline

    By Johi1120
    This book was not what I expected. The storyline was a ok but a bit slow at times. Not the usual Abbi Glines steamy story.
  • Never disappointed with this series!

  • She did it again

    By MsTabby
    Nothing gets done when I start one of her books. I read this in a few hours. I couldn't put it down. Keep them coming!
  • Couldn't stop reading!

    I fell in love with all the characters of this book. I disagree with the other reviews below because it was a really good book ! I couldn't put it down and it made me so happy at the end . Sure the main girl character might had me annoyed at one point but it wasn't that bad . I would recommend this for anyone and it's amazing , can't wait to read Majors book!
  • Not her best

    By Lilabetah52356
    I've read the Rosemary Beach series and loved them all but this new one doesn't measure up. Not a fan
  • I'd recommend.

    By Marriah193
    I hate to say this, but Captain and Addy's story didn't capture my attention the way all of the other stories did. It wasn't bad, and if you like Abbi's stories and are looking for something to read, I definitely recommend adding this to the list. Now I'm more than ready for Nan and Major (which I totally called, btw).
