The Best Goodbye
Synopsis:From #1 New York Times bestselling author Abbi Glines comes the next sizzling novel in the Rosemary Beach series, featuring well-known playboy and Blaire’s half brother, Captain.
“The look on Rose’s face had screamed that she was hiding something. Hell, she’d practically run away from me. There was something to that. I knew there was . . . “
After ten years in the employ of a mysterious crime boss, River “Captain” Kipling is ready to leave his sordid past—and his cover occupation as an upscale restaurateur—behind him. The only thing standing in the way of his “retirement” is his commitment to launch a new restaurant in the resort town of Rosemary Beach. With his sister, Blaire, nearby, Captain can delay his dream of running a humble bar on the waterfront, but the unwanted attentions of his head server, Elle, have him itching to get out.
Until he notices Rose Henderson, the new server at the restaurant. All he knows about the pretty redhead with the cute glasses is that she’s a hardworking single mom from Oklahoma. But there’s something overly familiar about her laugh…something strange about the way she looks at Captain…

It’s no secret that I love me some Abbi books. Rush Finlay has been my #1 BB for the last four years and no one has even come close to taking his place, but I will tell you this…River “Captain” Kipling has definitely earned himself a solid runner up spot. Dear LAWD this man is delicious! He has it all…hot, Alpha, protective, and can he ever talk diiirrttty!! Somebody better call the fire department when he turns it on because it’s THAT hot!
“So wet. That’s fucking hot. I’m gonna need to taste that, baby.”
Um…see what I mean?? Panties.On.Fire.
TBG is the story of River( I love his name so I don’t call him Captain) and Addy/Rose-(this will all make sense a couple chapters in). Our two lovebirds came together as children under terrible circumstances and were ripped apart by an evil, horrible woman. Believing Addy to be dead and living with the guilt of not being able to save her, River has dedicated his life to ridding the world of those that prey upon and abuse children. However, he doesn’t exactly do this in a “legal” way.
Addie has no idea that River thinks she is dead, only that he somehow abandoned her. Oh and Addie has a secret…a BIG one!! This story has all the elements I love in a book. Nothing warms my heart more than two teenagers falling in love and then finding each other again as adults. Add in a big “secret” and you have the makings of a perfect book!
When these two find each other again, it will make your heart clench. And the more you get to know River and see the man underneath his hard exterior, you will just fall in love with him even more.
“She was a distraction. They’ve all been a distraction. There’ve been hundreds-I won’t lie to you. But I didn’t care for a single one of them. I never let them have me the way you had me. No one touched my soul, Addy. Only you.”
Swoon-city. River and Addy are for sure one of my favorite Rosemary Beach couples. You will definitely be rooting for Addy. She is strong and sassy and I adored her. I can’t recommend this one enough! I give it 4.5 huge, shiny stars!!
