  • What the hell was this that I just read? All I can say is there is NOTHING hero like about Cruz! He was a nasty whoring jerk who thought nothing of sleeping with a married woman for five years and making sex video's with her. I know he was not with Lila but sleeping with that bitch in the beginning of the book right in in front of Lila showed how little he cared about her as a lifelong friend. Countless scenes with him ogling other women and getting turned on by them (Emmy) even after before and [...]


  • 0,01 star, and if possible with minus!The story was so bad, it’s not even funny.Full of TSTL moments, very unlikable spoiled characters, fat slut-shaming and huge double standards.LOVE-TRIANGLE!!!I can’t believe this pathetic selfish brat, Lila Kate, was raised by Grant and HarlowVER!!! I just can’t believe it!!!And she didn’t end up with Eli – the only decent character in this book – no, she ended with the biggest abhorrent manwhore ever – Cruz Kerrington.I can’t believe the Ker [...]


  • I don't even know what to say about this mess. Characters that I fell in love with in the previous series are being destroyed by their children and their shitty decisions.


  • 3.5 Because of Cruz STARS"Fucked up Cruz Kerrington didn’t deserve Lila Kate. -¿Este libro fue mejor que Like a memory? NO, La verdad es que es igual de mediocre, y se nota que Abbi ya solo escribe por escribir, y no por que tenga ganas.-¿Me gusto? Tampoco-¿Por qué carajo le puse 3 estrellas? Durante el 90% de este libro pensé que le iba a poner una estrella, luego algo paso y cambio toda la historia radicalmente, fue tal este cambio que inclusive le di un pequeño aplauso a Abbi Glines. [...]



  • Here is the thing - I enjoy her writing. I do. I like the style of it - it's easy, romantic dribble. But the plots. Oi. The plots.Warning - this review contains spoilers and I don't care so reader beware.Because of Lila is basically the same BS that went on in Because of Low: an insecure girl meets a guy trying to get over the girl he's really in love with. The only difference is she threw in a love triangle this time. So this chick is gorgeous, naive, and innocent, and has two dudes fighting ov [...]



  • Comparing this to the first book, I like this more and I partly buy the drama. At some point it went downhill for the following reasons:- I don't get Lila Kate. She's a sheltered woman who craves for an adventure. For someone traveling alone, I'm bothered she trusts easily and her kind of adventure is reckless. Plus, she's indecisive and too insecure. Her mama didn't raise her to be like that. - Cruz Kerrington. Woods & Della, I love you guys but your son is a fucking douchebag. 🙄🔪- Th [...]


  • First of all, I didn't give expectation when I was about to read this book, but couldn't help but be upset anyway.I want to slap Lila Kate so bad just so I could knock some sense into her!! she is such a martyr for this Cruz guy. seriously, can this girl's standard in a man get any low! this girl is pathetic! (view spoiler)[ there is this scene where she watched the sex video of Cruz with a married woman, and mind you, it was detailed/wild and Cruz was even seen in the video talking dirty to thi [...]


  • I luv Lila so much.The story is about Lila Kate Carter. I luvd her parents book it's one of my favourites from the Rosemary Beach series. So I knew I was goin to luv Lila Kate. Lila was goin through a point in her life where she didn't know what to do with herself. She was soft gentle didn't do anything wild she was just like her mum. That wasn't a bad thing she was the perfect girl. But after having a run in with one of close friends Cruz Kerrington told exactly what he thought of her she could [...]


  • ===>"Don't be like Lila. Dumbass"<===I didn't like the hero. He is a manwhore who never convinced me of the love for our heroine. Just a woman winking at him that he's ready to fuck her. Emmeline Kipling is a whore! #justsayingAnd his affair with an older woman and married is pretty gross. #Yuck!I honestly I was hoping that the heroine created a backbone and pride and move on with Eli.This story of a man sinking in sex with other women to forget the heroine is getting really old and tiring [...]


  • Why don't I learn? I keep giving this author a chance, but I've hated almost every book of hers that I've ever read. Tried this sample and it seemed so promising. Like a sucker I downloaded and dove right in. Sex with a hot guy that's amazing, but sadly he's too drunk to remember anything about it (he's in love with someone else already anyhow) and the girl is crushed. Perfect!!! .But then there's the whole switch and bait. Why do I keep doing this to myself?????YEP. That about sums it up.


  • This author and I do not have the same definition of 'romance' and here is another fine example why./review/show


  • Me after reading the blurb one month ago:Because of Low 2.0 WHY ELI WHYYY? why not one of Dewayne's sons or Preston's or someone better? Why ruin Lila Kate's story by making her the second price when she should be first, she's such a special person she deserves a better story a better partner. I was so excited when I find out that she was the next on getting her story but now I don't feel like I'm even going to read the story and that made me sad because I like her she's my favorite baby from al [...]


  • 3 Disappointed Stars!When you grow up with series as romantic yet real like Sea Breeze and Rosemary Beach, you definitely have high expectations. But what happens when their kids ruin it all?WARNING:This review is not professional, is not logical but is in fact a grievance of a dedicated fan. When Rush met Blaire, Grant fell for Harlow, Cope loved Nan, Cage promised Eva forever, Marcus supported Willow and Amanda showed Preston how to love, I too let myself be readily whisked away into that worl [...]


  • 4.25 Love Triangle Stars! This story pulled me in a few different directions. I really liked Eli, and was rooting for him to be the game changer for, Lila Kate! I didn't like Cruz, and his aloof, playboy attitude. Without giving too much away, there was a big NASTY reason for Cruz being the way he was, for the most part! That reason, I could have clawed her eyes outght unseen! I would have liked to have seen way more justice to have played out, in that respect! I know that's pretty cryptic of me [...]



  • Ok - this was SO much better than the first book. There weren't as many Rosemary Beach & Seabreeze kids thrown in here and the proofreading was soo much better - still many typos and stuff, but it was a lot more overlookable ;)I loved that we got lots of Grant and Woods etc.It was a sexy, funny, moving, adorable & frustrating romance with a stupid love-triangle thingy :/ I hate those, but I knew who I wanted Lila to end up with ;)I liked the story. I hope book #3 - whoever it will be abo [...]


  • Sigh :( I don't know what to think.t of all super misleading synopsise story felt rushed and I didn't connect with any of the characters. In all honesty, please Abbi stop writing about these kids. It's ruining my opinion of my most favourite characters from Sea Breeze and Rosemary Beach. If these are the kids they have raised, they have turned into really mediocre parents :/. I'd rather not know more about any of them. Done. Will treasure the other books forever though. Xxx


  • 2/5 Eli Hardy Deserves Better STARS SPOILERT ALERT! Me tomare mi tiempo para escribir todo lo que deseo sobre esta historia. Es la 1 am y me siento inconforme, me siento timada y me encuentra rabiosa. Principalmente no venia con ninguna expectativa para esta historia pero en el fondo estaba esa pequeña esperanza de que este libro fuera mejor que el primero pero sinceramente para mi no lo fue, fue igual; flojo, corto y una falta de respeto para ser parte de una nueva saga (una unión de sagas en [...]


  • 2.5 stars What the actual eff did I just read?!I think this appropriately encapsulates my feelings of this book from beginning to endDamn one thing I'll say is that this book was not as predictable as I thought it would be when I first dove in. Messy romance story ugh. Lila Kate comes from a privileged background and after finally coming to terms that her long-time crush, Cruz, will never be part of the fairytale romance she dreamed of having, alike her parents, she decides to leave Rosemary Bea [...]


  • If this hadn't JUST been published, I could have sworn I'd read this Abbi Glines book before. She REALLY needs to mix it up a bit. And by mix it up, I don't mean throw in a bunch of plot points that don't go anywhereOh and uh the understanding of how birth control works in this thing is, um, lacking


  • To say i’m disappointed, is an understatement. I am so so upset. Hate the hero, Lila Kate is annoying and i just can’t with this book. Ugh i didn’t even finish the first book, i should’ve known that’s the first warning. I feel so bad for giving this book 1 star (believe me, no one is more sad about this than me) but that’s really how bad this book is. I love Abbi Glines, i really do, and Rosemary Beach is one of my favorite series, but this one is a pure mess. i probably won’t both [...]


  • I hate it that I have to rate so low a book of one of my favorite authors but I think this series just doesn't work for me. I don't want to give any spoilers so I will be short: One of the worst love-triangle romances I've ever read and the drama in this story went from bad to worse. The only good thing about this book was Abbi Glines' writing, which I enjoyed very much.


  • I've had time to dwell on my feelings since skim-finishing this book and I'm not too sure why these books are even being written. I felt like I had already read this book, mainly because I find Abbi's books in both the Seabreeze and Rosemary Beach worlds the exact same. Same type of characters, same story lines, etc. I also think Abbi needs to educate herself on how birth control works because honey.Oh, Honeeey!


  • Before I start, I really do love Abbi Glines and her works. She's an amazing author. I've read all of them so many times that I've lost count, and I was super excited when picking this up, but unfortunately, this has been one of my least favourites. On my first viewing, I was excited because I was looking forward to Lila-Kate and Eli's love story, because that's what the blurb had led me to believe. It also made me sympathise for Eli too, and I thought it'd be sweet if he met the right girl duri [...]


  • Why do I keep doing this to myself?Cruz Kerrington has grown into a young man who is so gross, even his parents seem to hate him. He has no friends to speak of (except Nate, who reminds him constantly what a huge, disgusting manwhore he is), and doesn't really seem to get along with or even talk to his two brothers. He must be really good looking because he's had sex with every woman in town (or "female" - the super annoying term the author uses repeatedly). But that's it. He's not nice, he does [...]


  • My rating for this book is 3.1 stars.Me siento un poco cruel con mis tres estrellas, pero es que me falto más de las Abbi que me hizo obsesionarme con Rosemary Beach. Me parece bien que demostrara que por más fantasía, no todo es color de rosas ni como los cuentos de hadas. El problema es que suena monótono y no la culpo, miren cuando uno trata de escribir una historia que se asemeje a la realidad, al fin terminas dándote cuenta de que no importa las mil maneras que trates de escribirlo por [...]


  • MAS COMO UN 2.5No se como sentirme al respecto Me gustó pero no. 1. Enserio creí que lila Kate se quedaría con Eli porque cual es el punto de unir las dos sagas si al final vas a emparejar personajes de la misma saga ???? Pero bueno. 2. ¿Por que otro Hardy tiene que quedar en la friendzone? Justo el papá de Eli( Marcus) quedo en la friendzone con esta chica ( Sadie me parece que se llama) hasta que conoció a Low ( ustedes ya saben esa historia) (incluso paso con Bliss !!!) entonces me mole [...]
