Shameless Recommendation

Marissa Not So PNR Mini Banner This is by far my favorite of the series since Rush’s story, and boy does Abbi put you through the wringer. Since this is the second part of Grant and Harlow’s story, you are already aware of the fight he has on his hands to get Harlow back. Reading his voicemails to her are almost too much to bear, but they are nothing compared to the letters she writes to him. Grant still is a dirty-talking pretty boy and Harlow remains the sweet, shy girl he fell in love with, but she can be naughty when Grant starts talking. You may need tissues during parts of this story, and that is all I’ll say about this wonderful book because I don’t want to spoil it. Don’t worry, we get our HEA and lead ups to the next two books.

The continuation of Grant and Harlow's story started out a little slow for me, but once it got going, it didn't stop!! What I loved most was that it wasn't overly dramatic. It was all about Grant and Harlow and how they made their relationship work. It was sexy — who knew Grant was such a dirty boy?!?! It was heart breaking — my tears fell more than once. It was sweet and beautiful and emotional. I loved catching up with Rush and Blaire, Woods and Della and the others. We met a new sexy guy and Nan was her usual bitchy self. As usual, I can't wait for the next one! [September 2014]

Publisher Synopsis

via Amazon

The unforgettable story of Grant and Harlow from Take a Chance continues in this brand-new novel in the Rosemary Beach series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Abbi Glines.

She was it. His one. His only. Then he made the mistake of letting her go.

After fighting his way into Harlow Manning’s heart—and revealing a side of himself no one had ever seen before—Grant Carter destroyed his own heart by giving in to his greatest fears and doubts. Months later, he’s stuck in a miserable routine. Work relentlessly. Beg his best friend Rush for news about Harlow. Avoid all other friends. Leave nightly voicemails for Harlow, pleading with her to come back to Rosemary Beach. Fall asleep alone. Repeat.

Miles away, on her brother’s Texas ranch, Harlow can’t bring herself to listen to Grant’s voicemails. Though she wants to be with him, and knows he regrets letting her go, she doesn’t know if she can trust him. When he discovered the truth behind her sheltered upbringing, it shattered their relationship, but the secret she carries now has far greater consequences. Can she risk giving Grant one more chance, or will the gamble ultimately destroy her?

åÊExcerpt

GrantåÊ

“It‰Ûªs me, but then you know that. This is the forty-eighth messageåÊ.åÊ.åÊ. which means I haven‰Ûªt seen your face in forty-eight days. I haven‰Ûªt held you. I haven‰Ûªt seen your smile. I don‰Ûªt know where you are, Harlow. I‰Ûªve looked, baby. God, I‰Ûªve done everything I could. Where are you? Are you even listening to these messages? Your voice-mail box is all I have left of you. I fucked up. I fucked up so bad. Just call me or answer my calls or send me a text. No, call me. Don‰Ûªt just text me. I need to hear your voice. I juståÊ.åÊ.åÊ. I need to see you, Harlow. I can‰Ûªt make this right if I can‰Ûªt hold you‰ÛӉ۝

BEEP

Another message cut off. Damn voice-mail never let me finå_ish. But then I wasn‰Ûªt sure she was even listening to her voice mail. I‰Ûªd been calling every damn night since the moment she walked out my door, and still nothing. I had gone to her dad‰Ûªs house in Los Angeles, and no one had been there, though I hadn‰Ûªt been able to see for myself‰ÛÓI wasn‰Ûªt even allowed past the gate. Security threatened to call the police.

Rush assured me she wasn‰Ûªt in Beverly Hills. But he knew where she was. She had told him where she was going the day she left my house for the last time, but he wouldn‰Ûªt tell me. He said she needed time, and I had to give it to her. The night he told me he couldn‰Ûªt tell me where she was, I had planted my fist in his face for the first time since we‰Ûªd known each other. He‰Ûªd taken the hit and shaken it off like the badass he was. Then he‰Ûªd warned me that was my only shot. He understood, but the next time, he was fighting back.

I had felt like a shithead for hitting him. He was protecting Harlow, and she needed someone to protect her. I just couldn‰Ûªt stand not being able to hold her. Not explaining why I had acted like a jackass.

Blaire had just started talking to me again. She‰Ûªd been so mad at me when she‰Ûªd seen the bruise on Rush‰Ûªs face and his bloody nose. She‰Ûªd refused to speak to me for almost a month.

I couldn‰Ûªt talk to anyone but Harlow‰Ûªs voice mail.

I would wake up in the morning and go to work doing manual labor for one of my construction jobs. I needed the physical abuse in order to sleep at night. Once the sun set and I couldn‰Ûªt work anymore, I would come home, eat, take a bath, call Harlow‰Ûªs voice mail, and go to bed. Then I would do it all over again the next day.

Nannette had stopped trying to contact me. After I kept refusing to answer her calls or the door when she came over, she got the hint and left me alone. Seeing her only brought back all the pain I‰Ûªd caused Harlow, and I hated seeing Nan‰Ûªs face. I didn‰Ûªt need any more reminders of all I had done to hurt Harlow.

Was it possible to hate yourself? Because I was pretty damn sure I did. Why hadn‰Ûªt I controlled the shit pouring out of my mouth the last time I‰Ûªd seen Harlow? I‰Ûªd ruined it. I‰Ûªd hurt her. Remembering her face as I‰Ûªd ranted about her not telling me about her illness made it impossible for me to look in the mirror. She had been scared, and I had been worried about me and my fucking fears. How had I become so selfish? I had been terrified of losing her, but all I‰Ûªd done was send her running.

I was a bastard, a heartless bastard. I didn‰Ûªt deserve her, but I wanted her more than I wanted to breathe.

I was losing precious time with her. I wanted to make sure she was safe and protected. I wanted to be there to take care of her and make sure she was healthy. Make sure her heart was OK. I didn‰Ûªt trust anyone else to keep her alive.åÊFuck!åÊThe idea of her being anything other than alive ripped open my chest, and I had to double over to breathe.

‰ÛÏYou gotta call me, baby. I can‰Ûªt live like this. I have to be with you,‰Û I cried out into the empty room.

GENRE

My first foray into the Romance genre came my freshman year in high school English, where the teacher had us all read books from several different genres. So, my first book boyfriend and PnR introduction, if you will, was Richard Merlin, from The Wizard of Seattle. Prior to that, I’d only read Fantasy or Sci-fi, with a little teen horror thrown in for angst. I was reading The Vampire Diaries decades before it was even a twinkle in the eyes of the producers. Now, I am addicted to PnR, always reading at least one book a week about vamps, wolves, angels, demons, Fae, or overall magic.
