Portia Van Allan was not someone Beulah could believe her mother had a friendship with. Wealthy, self-absorbed and other than the fact Portia was supplying special care for Beulah’s sister, Portia was cruel.

The day Portia’s son returns home for the summer, Beulah soon finds that Portia isn’t in charge. This isn’t her home at all. Her late husband left her with nothing. It was all left to their son who doesn’t seem to like his mother at all.

Jasper Van Allan doesn’t know why his mother has hired a young gorgeous blonde to take care of the house and he is almost ready to let her go when he finds out just why she’s working for his mother.

Realizing Beulah is more than a stunning face he gives her a chance then soon offers her a job at his office just to be near her all the time. It’s all falling into place. Making sense… when the real lies, the dark secrets, and the skeletons come tumbling out of the Van Allan closet. Twisted truths that will make Jasper loving Beulah impossible. And send her running…

About the Book

BecauseofLila_Amazon_iBooksPrim, proper, classic good girl, and her least favorite label – icy.

Lila Kate Carter has heard them all. The last one, being the newest. She is not icy. She just doesn’t care for Cruz Kerrington and his spoiled, selfish, careless ways. That doesn’t make her icy, that makes him a jerk!

Tired of being labeled and doing what is expected of her, Lila Kate leaves Rosemary Beach, Florida ready for an adventure. Wanting to recreate herself, find a new path, and become something more.

Eli Hardy is tired of women who always act the same, do the same thing and expect the same thing. He’s ready to swear off women until he can get the rest of his life together.

Two weeks into his no-women-rule he meets Lila. She’s so damn sweet and polite. Like she walked right out of an etiquette book. But he’d already been drunk before she walked in so there was a good chance she might not be as stunning and perfect as he thinks. He’s just too drunk to worry about that.

The next morning, he swears he can still smell her on his skin. He just can’t remember why or what happened after that third dance.

Their worlds are about to collide, and so are the secrets and lies.

Until Friday Night (Field Party Book 1) by Abbi Glines

51HfK8HtuNL._SX329_BO1,204,203,200_

Title:  Until Friday Night

Series: Field Party – Book 1

 

Author: Abbi Glines

Publisher: Simon Pulse

Publication Date: August 25, 2015

Format: EBook, Paperback, Hardcover, Audible

Genre:  Teens and Young Adult

Pages:  336

 

Rating:  5 stars

 

 

Synopsis:  The first novel in a brand-new series—from New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Abbi Glines—about a small Southern town filled with cute boys in pickup trucks, Friday night football games, and crazy parties that stir up some major drama.

To everyone who knows him, West Ashby has always been that guy: the cocky, popular, way-too-handsome-for-his-own-good football god who led Lawton High to the state championships. But while West may be Big Man on Campus on the outside, on the inside he’s battling the grief that comes with watching his father slowly die of cancer.

Two years ago, Maggie Carleton’s life fell apart when her father murdered her mother. And after she told the police what happened, she stopped speaking and hasn’t spoken since. Even the move to Lawton, Alabama, couldn’t draw Maggie back out. So she stayed quiet, keeping her sorrow and her fractured heart hidden away.

As West’s pain becomes too much to handle, he knows he needs to talk to someone about his father—so in the dark shadows of a post-game party, he opens up to the one girl who he knows won’t tell anyone else.

West expected that talking about his dad would bring some relief, or at least a flood of emotions he couldn’t control. But he never expected the quiet new girl to reply, to reveal a pain even deeper than his own—or for them to form a connection so strong that he couldn’t ever let her go…

 

 

Review:   I have said it before and I will say it again—I have mad love for Abbi Glines.  Her ability to write across multiple genres is impressive.  I have liked all of her books, but one of my favorites is The Vincent Boys.  This book brings her back into the young adult genre…and with a bang.

The characters in Until Friday Night all have great depth to them.

Maggie, the female MC, is one of the most complex YA characters I’ve read in a long time.  Maggie is strong yet fragile, she is kind and unselfish and a smart character to read.  She loves with all of her heart.

West is a deeply flawed character, which I appreciate.  So often the heroes’ flaws are overlooked or glossed over in favor of a nice set of abs.  That is not the case with West.  Yes, he is the typical good-looking football jock when the story first begins, but he develops and evolves into someone you, the reader feel for and care for and ultimately root for.

The secondary characters are even developed enough that the reader can relate to them and either love or hate them.

The thing that truly makes this book special is reading how the relationship between West and Maggie evolves and being drawn in to their stories.  You can feel the emotions that ebb and flow between Maggie and West and they are realistic enough to be believable and even though I know this is fiction, I want the story to be real enough.

It is evident that Abbi Glines loved this project and put her heart and soul into this story.  In this first book alone, she has cared enough to develop the secondary characters so that the reader is now interested in what their story might be, as well.

Favorite Quote:  “Before you, I never smiled.  I never laughed.  I’d forgotten how.  I was alone, and I didn’t know any other way.  But you saved me.  You make me feel appreciated, needed, wanted.  You brought me out, and you gave me reasons to laugh again.  Just seeing you makes me smile.  No one could ever mean to me what you mean to me.” – Maggie

I’m not sure if this is intended to be a Stand-alone or not.  The main characters do get a HEA, but, in my opinon, there was one question unanswered.  Could be just me.  Probably is just me.  However, Abbi Glines characters almost always make a reappearance in later books in her series and often have second books.  So… J

Review: When You’re Back: A Rosemary Beach Novel by Abbi Glines

51-IOhTfpZL._SX320_BO1,204,203,200_

Title:  When You’re Back:  A Rosemary Beach Novel

Series:  Rosemary Beach Series Book 12

 

Author: Abbi Glines

Publisher: Atria Books

Publication Date: June 30, 2015

Format: Ebook, Paperback

Genre:  Contemporary Fiction

Pages:  272 pages

 

Rating:  4/5 pages

 

Synopsis:  From #1 New York Times bestselling author Abbi Glines comes the next new adult novel in her beloved Rosemary Beach series, which continues the story of Mase and Reese from When I’m Gone.

She was where my home would always be. It was time I took the next step and proved to her I was all in. Forever.

A chance meeting in Rosemary Beach has turned into a fairy-tale romance as Reese prepares to move in with Mase on his family ranch in Texas. With the loving support of the Colts, and her recent discovery that she has family of her own, Reese can finally move on from the dark horrors of her past and into a bright future.

But Aida isn’t going to let that happen. The beautiful blonde has been raised to think of Mase as her cousin, but it’s clear to Reese that Aida doesn’t love Mase like a cousin should.

And then there’s Captain, the inescapable stranger who has connections in Dallas and Rosemary Beach—and who conveniently shows up wherever Reese happens to be. Hot, mysterious, and plain-speaking, Captain isn’t afraid to tell Reese what he thinks about Mase—and how he feels about her.

As the competition for Mase and Reese’s hearts heats up, Reese’s past begins to unravel, illuminating shocking truths that will forever change the lives of the happy couple—and set the final stories of Rosemary Beach in motion.

 

 

Review:   I need to start out by telling you that I have mad love for Abbi Glines and all her books.  The Rosemary Beach series is by far my favorite.  The characters are engaging and funny and lovable.  Unfortunately, this was not one of my favorites in the series.  I like Mace and Reese.  I really do.  However, I didn’t feel the love in the second book.  Let me clarify…I felt the love, but I didn’t love what I felt.  I was actually rooting for Reese and Captain at one point.

The book does have a little of everything that makes a good contemporary romance – relationships, angst, heartbreak and even a little mystery.  Except I had a hard time getting over how dependent Reese is on Mace.  I suppose that’s due to my feminist side, so not everyone will feel that way.

On a final note, I think Captain deserves his own book, Abbi…  J

This is the 2nd in a mini-series but does have a HEA.
