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?

At a Glance: 
At a glance I knew I would love it. I love Abbi Glines Rosemary Beach series.

Bom chicka wah wah. Holy hotness batman, the cover gives you just a taste about what is about to go down.

Action? Of course there’s action and ton of it. And that action, man is it hot.

So you’ve got the quiet girl Harlow, and the nice but oh so sexy Grant. We have met both of them before in previous Rosemary Beach books, Grant actually made his first appearance in Fallen Too Far with Blaire pointing a gun to his face. Harlow is the daughter of the rock god Kiro Manning. She’s the only child he truly actually cares about, which is unfortunate for Harlow who has to live with her half evil sister Nan. Harlow the innocent girl becomes intoxicated by Grant and is smooth talking ways, but can she get over that he once had feelings for her vile half-sister and crushed her heart three months prior.

Grant, oh boy Grant. You are one smooth talker, very very smooth. By the middle of the book I didn’t even care that he’s been with Nan, and previously hurt Harlow. I’m rooting for him, I can understand that he’s been hurt and he sees hurt around him and doesn’t want it for himself. Grant has some major hurdles to overcome to get Harlow’s heart.

The romance is the best part! The book goes back and forth between the future and three months before. You see where Harlow and Grant first hit it off and now how they stand. You see Grant have so much love for this girl that he will do anything. Harlow who has been hurt by Grant after he ignored her is having a hard time forgiving him and giving into the smooth talker, to trust him again.

Something I loved:
I loved the cliff hanger actually. Which is odd, but I loved it and I can’t wait for more Grant and Harlow. I don’t want their story to end and I can’t wait to see where they end up and who they have to overcome in One More Chance.

Would I recommend it?
Yes, definitely. I would actually recommend you read the entire Rosemary Beach series. I love these girls right away in the Rosemary Beach series, and then I fall head over heels for the guys. They would do anything for the one that hold the key to their heart.
