The backstory that fans have been clamoring for—how Rock and Trisha fell in love—is the final installment in the Sea Breeze series from New York Times bestselling author Abbi Glines. And don’t miss the sizzling epilogue, where Abbi wraps up all the Sea Breeze couples’ stories!
Trisha Corbin always knew how to hide a bruise. With her momma’s boyfriends unable to keep their hands off of her, she had no choice. And as long as it meant the guys wouldn’t go near her little brother, Krit, it was worth it. But her days of dreaming that Prince Charming would ever come rescue her are far, far in the past.
Rock Taylor always had a plan. Through football, he would rise above the life he was born into. A full ride to play for a major college team was within his reach—assuming he didn’t let anything get in his way. But scoring a date with the hottest girl in Sea Breeze was proving harder than expected. Trisha Corbin was every man’s walking fantasy, and she wouldn’t even glance his way.
When Rock finally does get Trisha in his truck, it isn’t for a date. It’s because he picks her up on the side of the road, beaten and bruised and walking to the local hospital. Before Rock knows it, football is no longer his life. Trisha Corbin is. And he’ll do anything to save her. And keep her.
In addition to Rock and Trisha’s love story, this special conclusion to the Sea Breeze series contains the wrap-up stories of all your favorite Sea Breeze couples: Sadie and Jax, Marcus and Low, Cage and Eva, Preston and Amanda, Jess and Jason, Krit and Blythe, and Dewayne and Sienna. The steamy romance won’t stop until the very last page!
I received this book for free from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
As you can see, I received this eARC from Edelweiss, and I have got to be honest; I’ve never read any of the other books in this series, and guys, this book can be read as a standalone too. I definitely enjoyed this book, quite a little too much than I originally expected.
I was pretty much surprised at how the story was told. Told in two different point of views, there were also two different time frames. Before. And after. So imagine my surprise when the book started out at AFTER. Coooool huh? But I am not going to give this book a full five stars, and for that, I’m so sorry.
This book was legit short. Okay, not really. Since it included EVERYONE’S conclusion, it was pretty okay. But Rock and Trisha’s story was a little bit too short for my taste. And I did get a little bit disappointed, because I wanted more. LIKE MOREEEEE. But it’s okay.
And then there was the fact that some parts were too cheesy for me. It was too cheesy that it seemed pretty much unrealistic. Don’t get me wrong, I definitely love a good romance, especially one that involves a sexy as hell knight in shining armor. HEHE. But yeah, some lines I winced, because I can almost imagine how people would react to that sort of sweet words in real life. HAH.
BUT I do love this book, and I’m kinda thinking of picking up the rest. So maybe I shall hehe.
