Summer had returned. The nightlife lit up the coastal town of Sea Breeze, Alabama with scantily clad sun-kissed bodies, live music, the smell of fresh cooked seafood.
Taking it all in, he wondered if coming back had been the best thing. He wasn’t the same man who had driven out of town a year ago on the motorcycle he’d bought after his best friend’s wedding. From the messy blonde curls he’d let grow out, to the tattoos now covering his arms, part of his chest and even the side of his neck, it all represented a part of his journey.
Eli Hardy was back, but he didn’t plan on staying for long.


  • Fantastic Read!

    By AndreaKhrystyne
    This was my first read by Abbi Glines and it makes me want to run out and find all of her other books. This book definitely made you feel. It made you hurt. It made you want. It made you smile. It made you love. It has all of the feels. Eli is definitely a complex character. I love how his character was written and how his story was told. He was damaged. All the good male main characters are! Ophelia is another character all of herself. I found myself liking her but then not liking her. It all depended on the scene - but I liked her for most of the book. She had good interesting qualities but fell in the trap of needing Eli. The writing was captivating. The story line flowed very well and the dialogue felt natural, for the most part. The whole thing was fluid throughout the book. I’m going to have to find more of her work! This really was a great read! I kept finding little bits of time to read when I wasn’t able to sit down and read because it was that good!
  • Sexy, Sweet & Heartbreakingly Emotional

    By Aurora H (Whoo Gives A Hoot)
    Best I’ve Ever Had by Abbi Glines was a sweet, sexy and heartbreakingly emotional romance that captivated my heart. When I heard that Eli Hardy was FINALLY getting his happily ever after I was beyond excited because he definitely deserves one, I just was not expecting Ophelia Finlay to be his one true love! Their journey to HEA took readers on a rollercoaster ride of emotions and I think my heart broke for him even more than it had in the previous two books in the Sea Breeze Meets Rosemary Beach series because of the tragedy he experienced in the year he was away. This was almost EVERYTHING I crave from a Abbi Glines romance, except for the fact that it felt too short, but that’s probably because I loved these two so much that I never wanted their story to end. Eli and Ophelia’s chemistry was undeniably raw and passionate. This story was filled with witty banter, perfectly humorous moments, and just the right amount of steamy scenes that left me satisfied. I cannot freaking wait to find out the next couple to get a book in this series and I totally look forward to seeing glimpses of these two in future books because I could never get enough of them!
  • Abbi!!!

    This book is just as magically as all the others!! I couldn’t decide which one I liked more, Sea Breeze or Rosemary, but then Abbi goes and combines my two favorites and I can’t get enough! I loved this book, but I’m gonna need you to stop with the abrupt endings! I wanna see them 1 year from now, please! Love your most loyal fan!
  • Incredible journey to love for 2 broken souls

    By mj_toth
    Eli took me on an incredible journey. He’s the guy who hasn’t gotten the girl so he sets off to experience life but when he returns to Sea Breeze a year later, well, he’s a different man. The shadows that lurk in his eyes show a man that experienced life and ended up shattered. Being home to support his Gran is more important but he’s not really ready to face his family. Ophelia recognizes a kindred spirit in Eli and provides a few rescues for him with his family. These two strike up an unlikely friendship yet find intense chemistry that neither expected. The challenge for both is letting anyone truly in to know their deep and dark secrets that allows them to embrace love. I devoured their intense, thoughtful, sexy romance needing them both realize they are worthy and can be loved.
