Présentation de l'éditeur

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?

3.0 étoiles sur 5 I liked the second half of the book. 25 février 2014
Par T. Zautner - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I’m on hiatus from reviewing; however, the second my greedy little eyes landed on an email regarding Grant's book, I just knew I had to come out of hiding for him. I've loved our (sexy as hell) hero from the minute I laid eyes on him in Rush's book. I'm a little torn over the many thoughts arguing amongst themselves inside my head. Not sure if it's the fact that I have come off of two totally amazing series or what, but this one felt as though it was just missing that little bit of somethin’ somethin’ I’d originally felt upon meeting Grant.

Why am I on the fence?

I think a lot of it has to do with the character of Grant I built up in my mind vs. the Grant we came to know through his journey with Harlow. There was the first half of the book Grant and then the second half of the book Grant, which left me so damn confused. I truly am torn right now; I really wanted to love Grant as much as I loved Rush. And I did to an extent. There were parts I adored about him and then there were the WTF moments that left my mind boggled. Maybe it’s because throughout the series, we’ve never really seen Grant through his own eyes; he’s always been portrayed through the eyes of his family and friends. And the Grant his family portrayed (at least in my mind) was this kick ass, sweet guy with a bad boy underlining. Therefore, in my opinion, the character Abbi built before my eyes was not the same Grant she has given us in his book. This version of “Grant” left me feeling a bit achy and nostalgic.

I’m going to be perfectly honest; for me, he felt like a weaker version of the perception I had grown to love. This “Grant” almost became a DNF. It took me a little bit to connect and even then I held back from truly falling head over heels for him. I always pictured Grant to resemble Rush in the way his character was broken, but what I didn't expect from him was the whining. Grant seriously whined continuously throughout the first half of the book. Yes. Yes, I said it. My issue is that the whining made his character seem weak and the weakness is what made it really hard for me to sympathize or connect with him and his wish washy ways. I understood his reasoning, I truly did. The pain from such tragedy can be debilitating, it can cause us to act in manners that are not within our norm.

Then there was the second half of the book, Grant, the one who did a 360 in personality and behavior. As I’m sure you’ve read in other reviews, Grant wasn’t always well liked; he seemed to suffer a bit from multiple personalities. This is where Abbi gave me the Grant I had grown to love in the other books, the one that has intrigued me to no end. This “Grant” was deserving of his lady and he went after what he wanted with determination. I really enjoyed observing the dedication he put into wooing his girl. Abbi pulled off some really sweet and swoon worthy moments. Now, this is the character I have been waiting to read about from the very beginning.

Harlow, hmm… what can I tell ya about Harlow? I can’t say she was my favorite heroine, but she also wasn’t one that annoyed me so bad I wanted to chuck my tablet at her face. I felt for her most often times, and my heart did ache for her in a few places. And while I sometimes wanted to shake her silly for allowing Grant to walk all over her, I kind of understood why she was so vulnerable to his charm. I can totally see her as the perfect ever after for Grant, as when she found herself, she gave our man a run for his money. One of the things I loved the most about her is that while she treaded lightly around Nan, she didn’t let that bitch get away with bullying her. Can I just say, I was jumping for joy and fist pumping the air each time she put that chick square in her place. I found her to be a really sweet heroine; however, at certain points, I found her innocence regarding sex to be a bit unbelievable. With her living arrangements, it just didn’t seem plausible to be that innocent. She is Kiro’s daughter; she has walked in on him multiple times going at it, not to mention she always has her face buried in books. As I said, I enjoyed getting to know her, especially when she grew a backbone and showed us a bit of sassy spunk. Nevertheless, her character was hard to connect with since it wasn’t always a believable one.

I struggled a bit on how to rate this book and finally decided to go with 3 stars. I know authors and readers tend to view 3 star reads in a negative light, but that's not how I meant it to be here. When it comes to my reviews, a three star read just means that there were elements that didn't fit for me personally. The question now is, would I recommend this book? Honestly, I don't know. I would most definitely to one of Abbi's die hard fans, but overall, it would depend. I liked the second half of the book, and I would continue on with the story line, as I am interested in seeing where she goes with Harlow's secret.

And to wrap this baby up, all I’m going to say is, if you’ve ever read an Abbi Glines book, then you know in true Abbi fashion, this book ends with a cliffhanger.

Thanks to Abbi Glines and Atria for providing me with an arc in exchange for an honest review.

Abbi Glines is a fantastic author who does an excellent job interacting with her readers. She once again delivers a heroine who I absolutely love......Harlow is amazing and she packs a bite I really didn't see coming. She doesn't lay down for Nan or Grant. It was refreshing seeing her hold her own against Nan, Blaire could actually take a few lessons from Harlow on how to shut Nan up. But Grant was a bit of of a disappointment for me. I really looked forward to this book because I loved the Grant I saw in the other books in this series. I thought he would actually take Woods's place as my favorite guy from Rosemary Beach, but unfortunately it was not to be. Grant let me down in the beginning of the book. Really his actions were what I consider douchbag terrority. He tries to redeem himself in the middle of the book, but just as I was warming to him......he let me down again. Sorry, real men stand by the woman they love. And even if Grant isn't sure he loves Harlow, real men stand by women they care for and he had no problem turning his back on Harlow. Yeah, I get Grant has issues, get in line we all do. I do admire Abbi for staying true to Grant's character. He is a selfish guy who likes to screw around. He has no clue how to deal with Harlow so as you can imagine he makes a lot of mistakes. But for me, I really didn't like what I saw in Grant; he wasn't the guy I thought he was. He had all this great advice for Rush concerning Blaire and was a great friend to Woods, Bethy, Jace, etc....but he's a terrible potential boyfriend. I really don't think I will read the next installment of Harlow and Grant's story. I can't get over the ick factor of Grant with Nan or how he treated Harlow. Harlow deserves a better guy. So 5 stars for Harlow, 1 star for Grant and as always Nan gets less than zero. I am actually still waiting for Nan to get what she really deserves! I am still a big fan of Abbi and look forward to Krit's story in April (I preordered!!).

5.0 étoiles sur 5 There's nothing like an Abbi Glines book high! 25 février 2014

“My kitten has claws and apparently only you bring them out. Sleeping with the evil sister has put you on my baby girl’s (…) list.”

There is something about an Abbi Glines book that gets to me every single time without fail. Her stories are not just consistently engaging and compelling, but each new book feels like she’s pushed the envelope one step further, taken her characters one extra step into the uncharted territories of her own endless imagination. You never know what you’re going to encounter, what kind of story she has weaved for us this time around, but one thing is certain – each book is a skin-tingling joy ride start to finish and it just keeps getting better and better.

After meeting him in the very first scene of Fallen Too Far as the guy Blaire aims her gun at, and then seeing him as the perennially level-headed and dependable fixture in all five instalments of the Rosemary Beach series, we finally get to properly meet Grant Carter and discover the man behind that panty-dropping smile. Grant is the stepbrother that Rush Finlay shortly had, but regardless of their parents’ marital status, they’ve been brothers through and through since they were little kids. Known as a perpetual womanizer just like his brother once was, Grant is not discreet when it comes to the identity of his many conquests, all but one – the woman at whose beck and call he has been for a long time and whose insistent hold over him he doesn’t seem to be able or willing to escape from – Rush’s younger sister Nan. A dysfunctional and volatile relationship from the very beginning, their connection is based purely on physical attraction, but its very existence stands in the way of the only genuine emotional bond Grant has ever formed with another woman. And that woman is Harlow Manning, Nan’s half-sister.

“Three kinds of women in this world. The kind that sucks you dry and leaves you with nothing. The kind that only wants a good time. And the kind that makes life worth a damn. That last kind… she’s the one that gives as much as she takes and you can’t get enough. She’s the kind… if you lose her, you lose yourself.”

Harlow is a fiercely independent young woman, her inner strength and self-sufficiency making her the perfect leading lady for a man who sees commitment as a vulnerability he won’t allow himself to have. Comfortably resigned to her own loneliness and the very opposite of a clingy female, Harlow lets Grant seduce her and allows herself to develop feelings for him, but the moment he shows his reluctance to claim her as his, she retreats back into her emotional fortress, making him then work all his charm and then some in order to get her to trust him again.

“You make me want things and feel a way I’m not ready for.”

When secrets from the past bring them closer together, they decide to give in to the blazing attraction between them and take a chance on one another, only to find out how deeply entrenched their own fears and insecurities truly are. Harlow is a heroine that awakens every protective bone in you; she is so accustomed to her own solitude and misplaced belief that she is unworthy of attention, that she cannot see herself as someone capable of competing with Grant’s past. Her defensive mechanisms never fully fade away and she never stops protecting her own heart, especially from a man whose life has taught him that love equates hurt and that loss is an unavoidable part of the equation.

“You smell like heaven and hell all wrapped up into one.”

This was such a surprising departure from the previous two storylines in the series, both of these characters having very personal journeys to travel before they can fully embrace the bond between them. Quite frankly, I have no idea how rough those journeys will be or what kind of roller-coaster Ms Glines will take us on with their story, but I know for sure it will be one heck of a ride. Grant and Harlow’s tale will conclude in One More Chance.

“I’m not the kind of girl you plan forever with.”

1.0 étoiles sur 5 This is not a romance 28 février 2014
Par Maggie - Publié sur Amazon.com

Where do I start with this book?
The "hero" (and I use the term very loosely) is a selfish, man-whore with no redeeming qualities. He takes the harlow's virginity and disappear for 3 months...then he continues to sleep with her evil sister Nan who He promised Harlow he would stay away from.
The beginning of the book is a bit awkward as the author shift from present to past etc. Harlow returns to rosemary beach from la and is living with her sister Nan, her first week there, she cannot sleep because her sister is having very loud sex with someone...in the morning Harlow goes to make breakfast and Grant reveals himself as the guy her sister was having sex with all night while Harlow was trying to sleep. This is their first encounter after Grant took Harlow's virginity and disappeared. Just creepy and disgusting
Harlow is somewhat upset and seems to say she will stay away from Grant. A day or two later Grant weakly apologizes for not seeing her for 3 months and gives her the brush-off as in "I don't want a relationship" but you are "special" lol. Harlow just says ok... She is a seemingly educated woman but acts like a complete naive doormat
Needless to say that within 1 week Grant has had sex with Nan, a 3 some with two random skanks, and then is back with Harlow. This is disturbing on so many levels. The worst part is that his weak realization that he wants HArlow isn't even his own, it is Rush who convinces him to pursue her after he catches him in bed with 2 women.
Harlow is beyond weak and stupid in this book. She takes Grant back immediately without explanations or questions
The romance between he two is nothing more than sex. Harlow is insecure and spineless. Grant just does what he always does with women.
As if all of that was not bad enough, a health issue is introduced for Harlow which is not even that dramatic and Grant, instead of being a human, gets mad at her and basically plans here funeral. Then he says thank god I didn't fall in love with you or put my heart into this relationship. Harlow just leaves at this point thankful that at least she loved him and Grant does not even look back as Rush drives her away, but tells his brother to just get her out of there.

I cannot even begin to explain how people find this story romantic. This book sets a very disturbing image of relationships. The scenarios in this book are beyond disgusting... A guy having sex with 2 sisters in the same house within a week of each other. Really???
I will not be reading the follow-up novel because unless Harlow starts dating someone else there is no way the author can fix this story.
