Blog Tour + Giveaway: When I'm Gone →

Rating: 5 Cups of Coffee

Goodreads’ Book Description: From #1 New York Times bestselling author Abbi Glines comes the next new adult novel in the Rosemary Beach series, in which we meet Mase, a Texas heartthrob first introduced in Take a Chance who comes to Rosemary Beach to stir things up.

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?


Natasha’s Experience:This is my favorite story from the Rosemary Beach series by far. It might have something to do with a perfect cowboy named Mase Colt-Manning. Seriously, #MaseIsMyMan is the most legitimate hashtag there is right now.

“When I’m gone, you can call me, and I’ll be there to listen.”

He embodies everything that you would want in a guy. He was a safe haven for Reese Ellis, a scarred woman who flees to Rosemary Beach in the hopes of building a new life for herself. Reese was this adorable, beautiful soul who captured Mase’s attention after a rather awkward/hilarious first impression.


Mase was an attentive and generous friend to Reese when she so desperately needed someone on her side. He was an even better confidant and lover when she needed that from him, too.

 “I never want to make her do anything. Even love me. She has to love me all on her own.”

What I absolutely loved about Mase was how transparent he was about his feelings toward Reese. He wore his heart on his sleeve and wouldn’t hesitate dropping everything to come to her aid. It was refreshing seeing this gorgeous, grown man do everything he could in his power to make this insecure woman feel cherished.

“Mase had faith in me. I just needed more faith in myself.”

This story had me laughing, crying, holding my breath way more times than I had expected, and more importantly, loving the connection between Reese and Mase. Without trying to sound redundant or just insanely cliché, I felt that they were completely made for each other.

“I had never known anything could feel this complete.”

If you love this series (why wouldn’t you?), don’t miss out on Mase and Reese’s story. Expect it to become one of your newest favorites.
