Because of Lila by Abbi Glines

Prim, 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.

About the Author

Abbi Glines is a #1 New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal bestselling author of the Rosemary Beach, Sea Breeze, Vincent Boys, Existence, and The Field Party Series . She never cooks unless baking during the Christmas holiday counts. She believes in ghosts and has a habit of asking people if their house is haunted before she goes in it. She drinks afternoon tea because she wants to be British but alas she was born in Alabama. When asked how many books she has written she has to stop and count on her fingers. When she’s not locked away writing, she is reading, shopping (major shoe and purse addiction), sneaking off to the movies alone, and listening to the drama in her teenagers lives while making mental notes on the good stuff to use later. Don’t judge.

I genuinely liked Lila at first. I don't want to give many spoilers, but I soon got annoyed by her. Abbi tries to bring too much drama into this book. Like drama up until the last 6 pages....then bam, all is good. At least there was no accidental pregnancy and Lila wasn't a helpless virgin.

Authors should keep their political views to themselves. Didn't buy this authors last book( political view point ) Leery about this one because of her politics. I don't spend money to watch sports, read books or watch tv and movies to have someones political views forced on me. Save your money. Find something else to enterttain you

Don't get me wrong I love Abbi Glines books but this one upset me. In the description it said it would be about Lila and Eli but no it wasn't then she tried to put too much drama in to it and the story isn't even what you think it is.

This has to be my favorite in this new spin off series. I wish we got an epilogue but still a great read.

Another great story by Abbi Glines ! I love the Rosemary Beach and Sea Breeze series. I enjoy reading the next generation stories. I like how older characters are mixed in stories. Abbi Glines is my favorite author. Keep the Rosemary Beach and Sea Breeze stories coming.

Lila Kate was just as beautiful as Harlow. I loved catching glimpses of old characters and discovering that their age had not mellowed them. This story is amazing. It gives you everything you could hope for and brings back memories of past characters of Abbis. Click buy, you won't be disappointed!
