I told myself I wouldn’t do this, and yet here I am. I deserve every single little feel that got sent my way because I had promised myself that I wouldn’t read this book. I even tweeted the author and received this cryptic reply:

Gah!!! (btw total fangirl moment when Abbi Glines replied)

But then I read Jennifer’s review, and then I saw that this book was free, and then I discovered that I am a masochist and I read it.

For those of us familiar with the Rosemary Beach books, we are all familiar with Kiro and Emily’s story and it’s tragic end. As I said before, when I first learned we would get a book I knew there was no way I was going to read it and like it. Boy was I wrong. Kiro and Emily have quite possibly one of the more beautiful stories that Ms. Glines has written. With novellas it’s often difficult to fully develop characters or make a love believable, but it certainly was believable in this book. While it was still a little too much instalove for my taste, I understand that there are so many pages an author has with a short story.

I will say, I thought I would cry more after reading the end. While it wasn’t a sobbing tear jerker for me, my eyes did water a little bit. Maybe. Or maybe they watered a lot. It doesn’t matter.

So for all of you who are hesitant to pick up this book, (I can’t believe I’m saying this after all my previous doubts and reservations) I think this is an Abbi Glines that will stick with you for a long time. In a good way. And a crying way.
