The villain of Rosemary Beach finally gets her own happy ending in the long-awaited final novel of the #1 New York Times bestselling new adult romance series by Abbi Glines.

The blockbuster #1 New York Times bestselling Rosemary Beach series ends with a bang when the troubled character readers love to hate gets her very own happily ever after in this eagerly anticipated and overwhelmingly requested story. Known for causing problems for everyone in Rosemary Beach, Nan has been growing up lately, and she’s finally taking center stage—and finding love with the man she least expected.

This is a New Adult romance novel recommended for ages 18+ due to sexual content and mature subject matter.

Is this day seriously here? Is it true that this is the end of The Rosemary Beach series? Do I really have to say goodbye? I am clearly going through denial over this and I have been avoiding writing this review, because that really means this is the end. Ugh.

So Nan, we know you; you've been that constant person that always showed up to stir the pot. The picture you let us paint of you hasn't been pretty, but you allowed us to see small glimpses into the real Nan and you made us want more, you made us curious. And finally, FINALLY, Abbi gave us Nan's story and let me be honest, IT WASN'T ENOUGH. Seriously, the town villain needs at least two books to really tell her story, open our eyes and heart and hopefully let us know that she truly does have a soul.  

Nan's story was definitely a different from any other story of Abbi's, there were two hot men involved. I mean. there is definitely a lot of hot men in all of her books, especially the scenes when the whole gang gets together, how Rosemary Beach can survive that crew is beyond me. First we have playboy Major, the hot Texan we met in When I'm Gone, who was getting in trouble then and is definitely keeping up his games in Rosemary Beach too. So our playboy messes up one too many times and Nan is over it, and the best way to get over it is to vacation, in Vegas. Now cue our second guy Gannon, who approaches Nan at a club with the confidence and arrogance that is needed when handling a girl like Nan. After Vegas things get a little more interesting, definitely crazy, and a lot more sexy.

While we do still have Dean's novella to look forward to, this is the end of The Rosemary Beach series and I hate saying goodbye. I still have questions Abbi, like that ending...!? Up in Flames was a blast, slightly dark, sexy, and some solid moves on swooning a girl, but I felt like I was missing a redemption part, maybe a darker past for Nan. I would've loved to see her forging a friendship and sisterhood with Harlow, especially after Harlow gave birth and Nan stepped up to help. We got a glimpse into the not so monster Nan then and I would've loved to see a bond form from that. So Abbi, you really don't have  to stop this series now, I could go for another Nan book, and a Jimmy book and then a book with everyone!
