Blog tour + Giveaway: When You're Back by Abbi Glines

Rating: 4 Cups of Coffee
Goodreads' Book Description:
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Abbi Glines comes the next new adult novel in her beloved Rosemary Beach series, which continues the story of Mase and Reese from When I’m Gone.

The future is bright for Reese Ellis. She has Mase Colt-Manning, the man of her dreams, and a family she didn’t know existed until her long-lost father arrived on her doorstep in Rosemary Beach. After growing up with a cruel mother and abusive stepfather, Reese is eager to get to know the caring and charming man who wants to be a part of her life. Everything is finally falling into place.

While Reese is visiting her new family in Chicago, Mase spends time with his “cousin,” Aida, who has worshipped him since childhood. Though they’re unrelated by blood, Mase and Aida have been raised to think of each other as family. But when Reese returns, she can tell something isn’t quite right with Aida, who clearly resents Reese and excels at manipulative little games. And though Mase is unsuspecting, Reese knows Aida doesn’t love him like a cousin should...

Natasha's Experience:


Being back in Mase & Reese’s life felt like coming home again after being away for a couple of months. The love that poured out of the pages from WHEN I’M GONE, the first book in Mase & Reese’s story, was definitely still alive and thriving in this second installment.

Mase Colt-Manning is back in Texas living with the love of his life, Reese Ellis. However, just because they are living in love doesn’t mean everything is fine and dandy. Reese feels like she needs to find something to do during her long days on the ranch because she hates feeling so dependent on Mase. I love that she wanted to do something for herself; it showed so much growth in her character knowing she was pushing her limits getting a job where she would have to read and write on the daily.

“Reese is everything I never knew I needed but I can’t live without.”

Mase is still the most swoon-worthy cowboy, ever. He loves Reese something fierce and isn’t afraid to let her know how important she is to him every single day. Being with her, without the distance that used to separate them when she lived in Rosemary Beach, was so incredible.

“Before Reese, I didn’t know that the world could be full of dreams. That you could wake up every day excited to breathe.”

This story brings in new characters who threaten to ruin the life that Mase & Reese are building for themselves: Aida, Mase’s cousin who needs to be constantly doted on and who harbors some not-so-great intentions towards Mase; and Captain, the new gorgeous, mystery guy who works with Reese and flirts with her any chance he gets.

Drama ensues as dark memories resurface when a demon from Reese’s past makes its way into her present. Mase & Reese go through quite a storm as they try and figure out how they can make a happy and loving life for themselves. WHEN YOU’RE BACK is a crazy and addictive read with a plot twist that I never saw coming. My heart was pounding erratically during so many scenes in this book; it almost felt like a thriller!

If you loved Mase and Reese in WHEN I’M GONE, you’re going to fall head-over-heels in love with WHEN YOU’RE BACK.
