Overview

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Abbi Glines comes the story of Grant, the sexy playboy who first captured readers’ hearts in Fallen Too Far.

When Harlow Manning’s rocker father goes on tour, he sends her to Rosemary Beach, Florida, to live with her half-sister, Nan. The problem: Nan despises her. Harlow has to keep her head down if she wants to get through the next nine months, which seems easy enough. Until gorgeous Grant Carter walks out of Nan’s room in nothing but his boxer briefs.

Grant made a huge mistake getting involved with a girl with venom in her veins. He’d known about Nan’s reputation, but still he couldn’t resist her. Nothing makes him regret the fling more than meeting Harlow, who sends his pulse racing. Yet Harlow wants nothing to do with a guy who could fall for her wicked half-sister—even if there are no strings between Grant and Nan. Grant is desperate to redeem himself in Harlow’s eyes, but did he ruin his chances before he even met her?

    Grrrr

    I think she is a good author but i am getting sick of the cliffhangers. I prob wont buy any more of her books. Im getting sick of paying over 7 dollars for half of a story and then paying another 7 to find out how it ends several months later.

    Rip off

    This book was 8 bucks and has a cliffhanger ending. You will have to spend another 8 and wait months to find out the end. Thats if the author doesnt try to juice you for anither 8 and make it a trilogy and by the way the book is only 200 pages. Im surprised abbi glines would take advantage of fans like this. My suggestion is not to buy this book.

    Liked the story but hate the cliff hanger

    I really love Abbi's books and this was a good story not my favorite but I liked it. I didn't like Grant as much as I thought I would but I didn't hate him. I'm just really tired of the cliff hangers. It seems like all authors are doing that now. I just want a full story.

    I have been an Abbi Glines fan, but spending $7 for an e-book only to find out that  I will have to spend another $8 in September just to read the ending has left me feeling ripped off. If this was going to be part one of a two part series, then tell us in the book summary so we can have a choice. I would never spend that much money for half a book. What we have here is another sell out to greed!

    Disappointed

    I love Abbi Glines stories and was so excited to read on about Grant and Harlow. But what a lousy way to end their story. Very disappointed for the cost.

    I enjoy her books, but why can't we just finish books. Why do we have to wait several months for an additional book that will probably only be 200 pages. I hate that I have to keep a spreadsheet to remind me when the next book will be released.

    Oh my god. I have loved Grant since the moment Blaire pulled her

    Oh my god. I have loved Grant since the moment Blaire pulled her gun on him in Fallen Too Far. And I immediately connected with Harlow when she went to hide out in Rush's room with Blaire in Forever Too Far. I always thought Grant was crazy for hooking up with Nan, and I am just so happy to see how he realized that and picks to have a real relationship with a woman who he can truly fall in love with. Yes, the ending of this book leaves you wanting more, have you read an Abbi Glines book before? I kinda wish there would be another Woods and Della book even though there story is through. That's the kind of author that she is, she leaves you wanting more. She gets into the head of her readers and knows what they want and how to make them want more. This is why, even though my paperback copy is coming in today I still bought the e-book at midnight. Even as a broke college student, I have to know what happens in this book! And wow, it was totally worth it! I won't spoil anything, because this book is a book everyone needs to read! I will be counting the days until One More Chance. I love all of Abbi's characters, her writing makes me feel like I'm watching it all happen in front of me. You get to see a side of Kiro that you never thought you would see before, you get to learn more about Harlow and her family and past. Plus, you get to see a side of Grant that makes you fall in love with him. I have read my fair share of books, and I have to say, this has topped my charts for sure. It doesn't matter if you are a man or a woman, if you are 18 or 60, this book will speak to you in some way. I can't say much more without wanting to give away stuff that happens in it, but I will end it with this: Abbi Glines, you did it again, you made me fall more in love with your writing, and you blew me away with this book. I thought I may have been building it up too much in my head, but I didn't build it up enough. You made me connect with every character in the book, well except for Nan, but near the end, I did have to feel sorry for her, who wouldn't? Everyone needs to read this book, I promise you, Harlow and Grant's story won't disappoint you.

    Love this series, but...

    If I had known this was not a stand-alone novel I would have waited to read after the conclusion was available! Grant and Harlow's story is as good as the rest of the series at least so far. I will have to wait for the ending and by then I will have to re-read this to refresh my memory. Again. AG needs to either write a lot faster or not publish until she's finished for a change.

    Not worth it

    She's a decent author. I agree that she has sold out to big marketing. Very disappointed in her newest offering. Save your money and get a library copy.

    YOU SUCK

    THE ONLY WAY TO STOP THESE AUTHORS, IS TO STOP BUYING THEIR BOOKS. GIVE THEM A BIG FAT DOSE OF REALITY. WITHOUT US THERE WOULD BE NO THEM. I'LL REPEAT STOP BUYING THE BOOKS. ONCE GREED TAKES OVER YOU START NOTICING IT IN THEIR WRITING. IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE ME GO BACK AND READ HER EARLIER WRITINGS. I DIDN'T WANT TO BELIEVE IT BECAUSE ABBI WAS MY FAVORITE, BUT I THOUGHT HER WRITING STYLE WAS CHANGING SO I WENT BACK AND READ HER BOOKS FROM THE BEGINNING AND SURE ENOUGH SHE HAS BECOME A SELL OUT.

    I was expecting more!

    First I must say I love Abbi Glines, Grant and Rosemary Beach Series! That being said I am shocked and a bit sad that I did not love this book. I was looking forward to reading Grant and Harlows story, but somehow in my mind it was going to, well be more. For some reason this just fell a bit flat for me. I even at one point put it down to read another book. That has never happened to me while reading an Abbi Glines book. Personally, I did not mind that it ended on a cliffhanger, so that was not the issue for me.

    I am glad I read this and look forward to reading the next book One More Chance. I am convinced that I was in a book funk reading this and the next one will be out of this world. If you have never read Abbi Glines I recommend you start with the first in this series Fallen Too Far. I can also highly recommend you head over to Effy Vaughn aka Abbi Glines website and read her free read, The Boys South of Mason Dixon. They are GREAT! ENJOY!!!

    Good Book!

    I've been a fan of Abbi Glines for many years. She writes amazing love stories. However, I wasn't as big of a fan of this one as her past novels. It's a great book, just cut too short! Some of her other books are much longer than this one! Still a great read!

    Harlow and Grant's story

    I liked both Harlow and Grant when they were introduced in the other books. Wish their story was a little better. I liked the book. Not the best in the series.
