Gossip is the ultimate currency in Rosemary Beach, but Bethy and Tripp have managed to keep one big secret to themselves.
Eight years ago, Tripp Newark was dating a rich girl he didn’t like and was on his way to Yale—and a future he didn’t want. The only way he could escape his predictable life would be to give up the money and power that came with his family’s name. And that’s exactly what he planned to do. At the end of the summer, he was going to ride off on his Harley and never look back.
That was before he met Beth Lowry.
It was only supposed to be a summer fling. She was a sixteen-year-old trailer-park girl who served drinks to his friends at Kerrington Country Club. They didn’t run in the same social circles. No one even knew they were friends, let alone lovers. Yet, for one summer, Bethy became his entire world.
But he couldn’t give up on his plan. He needed to leave Rosemary Beach, but he vowed he would come back for her.
Problem was, by the time he came back—years later than promised—it was too late. His cousin, Jace, had already claimed the woman he loved. . . .
My 4-Star Review
I have been waiting for more Bethy. And now we have her and Tripp. It was inevitable I guess. These two are the two that we have only gotten glimpses of in the past. Now they have their own story. Not necessarily a happy story.
I will admit, this isn't my favorite of the series. It's actually my least favorite. Now calm down there. It is a really good book. I just wasn't necessarily fond of this one.
I used to be a Bethy fan. Now, I am not so much. At least not in the first part of the book. She eventually somewhat redeems herself in the second half.
This is more of a story about forgiveness and moving forward than anything. That means admitting the love that always seemed to simmer in the background. Embracing it in this book isn't as simple.
These two characters are the broody type... So expect many moments wanting to slap them both around a little or a lot.
The journey these two take in this book is sweet. A little annoying, but sweet nonetheless. If you are a fan of this series, you won't be disappointed. I promise.
