You Were Mine (Rosemary Beach #9) by Abbi Glines

You Were Mine (The Rosemary Beach Series Book 9)


From #1 "New York Times" bestselling author Abbi Glines comes a brand-new Rosemary Beach novel about Tripp Newark and his hidden romantic past with Bethy Lowry. 

In the eyes of the wealthy playboys who frequent Kerrington Country Club in Rosemary Beach, Tripp Newark is a hero. Under pressure from his parents to become a lawyer and lead a conservative, upper-class life, Tripp disappeared from town five years ago to travel the world, forfeiting the opportunity to inherit millions. Yet few know what he was really running from...

Bethy Lowry was unraveling long before her boyfriend drowned in a riptide trying to save her after she'd had one too many drinks--again. A trailer park kid working as a cart girl among the wealthy patrons of Kerrington Country Club, Bethy has always been impressionable. But five years ago, before she earned her reputation as a hard-drinking, easy girl, she had spent a single summer with Tripp Newark that changed her life forever...


You Were Mine was an alright read. It wasn't my favorite in the series, but then again I never really liked Bethy. A lot of time you can win me over with stories from characters I didn't previous enjoy, but this time I still didn't really like Bethy that much.

Bethy and Tripp were together once. They were in love, but then something happened and Bethy changed. Tripp left because he had to, he had to get out and not be who his parents wanted him to be. When he left Bethy was devastated and had some things to deal with and she did not deal well. Her whole attitude and how she reacts to things is just not for me. I just don't like her that much. I just...yeah she had some bad things happen, and currently she has some stuff to deal with that is hard, but she makes the stupidest choices all the time.

Tripp only wants Bethy to be happy again. She was happy with his cousin when he came back, happy until they lost the cousin. Now Bethy won't even talk to him, but he is determined to make sure she is safe. He still loves her and wants the best for her even if that is not with him.

Bethy throughout the story just pushes Tripp away. She can't make up her mind about anything, thinks that she shouldn't be feeling what she feels so she just is a train wreck. I didn't like it. She wasn't written in a way that made me really feel for her. Instead I was just like why are you like this?! Of course everything works out in the end, but for the life of me I cannot figure out why Tripp would still want her. An alright read, but not my favorite from this author.
