I had an urge to fix all her problems. Which was stupid. She was doing fine without me. But something about those big eyes…
Mase Colt-Manning has always preferred his humble life as a Texas rancher to his birthright as the son of a legendary rock star. In fact, he rarely visits his father’s rarefied world in Rosemary Beach, especially if it means bunking at his vile half-sister Nan’s house—until one visit leads to a chance encounter with a young, gorgeous house maid who awakens him with her off-key but spirited imitation of a country music star…
Reese Ellis finally has her freedom. After escaping a lifetime of abuse from her parents and classmates for an undiagnosed learning disorder, she seizes the opportunity to be a house maid to some of the richest families in Rosemary Beach. But her job is in jeopardy when she causes an accident at the home of her most important client, Nan Dillon. When a hot, half-naked stranger with a cowboy’s swagger comes to her rescue, she’s intrigued—then afraid once he shows his own interest. Reese has never met a trustworthy man in her life. Will Mase be any different?
So What Did I Think Of When I’m Gone by Abbi Glines?
The connection and chemistry between Mace and Reece was sizzling. I liked how even though there was a clear attraction they took time to get to know each other and let the romantic emotion build.
There were interesting conflicts that kept my attention throughout the story. What with Reece trying stay afloat with life and Mase trying to balance his family in Florida and his home in Texas.
Now for me Abbi writes some intense and emotional stories that I gobble up but sadly this story just didn’t pack as much punch that I was looking forward too like the others.
Though I did like Mase and Reese. Mase was such a good guy and I was really feeling him. I though at first that he would be this hard, straight-laced no nonsense guy be he happily surprised me. He was so chivalrous, attentive with a sexy edge with his swoon worthy words and actions. In the end he ended up winning me over.
I really liked how resilient and independent Reese was. Even dealing with all of the hard issues she had to face, she faced them head on and didn’t take the easy way out when it was presented to her.
I didn’t expect the way the story ended leaving me surprised and overall I enjoyed When I’m Gone by Abbi Glines and am interested to read what is next for Mase and Reese.
