Mase Colt-Manning has always preferred his humble life as a Texas rancher to his birthright as the son of a legendary rock star. In fact, he rarely visits his father’s rarefied world in Rosemary Beach, especially if it means bunking at his vile half-sister Nan’s house—until one visit leads to a chance encounter with a young, gorgeous house maid who awakens him with her off-key but spirited imitation of a country music star…

Reese Ellis finally has her freedom. After escaping a lifetime of abuse from her parents and classmates for an undiagnosed learning disorder, she seizes the opportunity to be a house maid to some of the richest families in Rosemary Beach. But her job is in jeopardy when she causes an accident at the home of her most important client, Nan Dillon. When a hot, half-naked stranger with a cowboy’s swagger comes to her rescue, she’s intrigued—then afraid once he shows his own interest. Reese has never met a trustworthy man in her life. Will Mase be any different?

My review:

"I want you to see yourself the way I do. This breathtaking beauty who has me so completely fascinated."

Oh, damn you Mase Colt Manning! You are the sweetest thing ever! I mean seriously, he's such an amazing guy and I didn't have any trouble loving his character. I honestly was a little surprised when I heard he was going to have a story and not Thad. I can start comparing Mase to the other male characters in this series, but I want to focus more on what makes him different. First of all, he's a country guy and lives in Texas. Second of all, he was raised in an average/simple lifestyle, even though his dad is a famous rockstar a.k.a Kiro Manning. Third, he works and barely has time to flirt. He has a friends with benefits relationship with a someone that you will meet when you read this book. She's a B$%#*, but that's about it. Last but not least, you know from the start that he's a good person, I mean c'mon his mom is a sweetheart. He's probably the first man in this series who grew up with a loving mom and dad(stepdad). No offense Kiro. 

"He makes it impossible not to love him."

Reese reminds me a little bit of Della. A beautiful girl with brown hair, blue eyes and a dark and unforgettable past. What I love about her is that she doesn't jump into conclusions right away which was a little tiring with the other female characters in the past books. It takes a really big shock to make her go nuts and push Mase away. I loved how Mase took care of her and how she trusted him. 

This book was sexy as well, I mean it's an Abbi Glines novel of course it's hot, but it's not only about sex, that's what I love about her books. The cliffhanger though was frustrating. I can't wait for the next book! Ahhhhh
