You Were Mine

You Were Mine
by: Abbi Glines

Should you read it?: Maybe
...if you like Abbi Glines & have read the rest of the Rosemary Beach series.
Category: New Adult

From Amazon:  Gossip is the ultimate currency in Rosemary Beach, but Bethy and Tripp have managed to keep one big secret to themselves. Eight years ago, Tripp Newark was dating a rich girl he didn’t like and was on his way to Yale—and a future he didn’t want. The only way he could escape his predictable life would be to give up the money and power that came with his family’s name. And that’s exactly what he planned to do. At the end of the summer, he was going to ride off on his Harley and never look back.

That was before he met Beth Lowry.

It was only supposed to be a summer fling. She was a sixteen-year-old trailer-park girl who served drinks to his friends at Kerrington Country Club. They didn’t run in the same social circles. No one even knew they were friends, let alone lovers. Yet, for one summer, Bethy became his entire world. But he couldn’t give up on his plan. He needed to leave Rosemary Beach, but he vowed he would come back for her. Problem was, by the time he came back—years later than promised—it was too late. His cousin, Jace, had already claimed the woman he loved…

Things I liked: 
I did really like Bethy & Tripp's story. After following several of the stories through the Rosemary Beach series, theirs was one of my favorites.

I love a second chance love story. I love when they come back for each other. And I loved how hard Tripp fought for it.

I enjoy the way she wraps all the stories & characters we've already met and read a lot about into each other's stories. I like that I feel like I get to still follow along with the other couples in some ways.

Things I didn't:
At this point, I'm liking pretty much everything about the Rosemary Beach stories because so much of the groundwork has been laid in the previous books, so it's just continuing. So there really isn't anything I don't like. They are very steamy, though.

Overall: If you like new adult, read Rosemary Beach overall and read this one when you get to it!
