“You Were Mine” is the 9th book in Abbi Glines’ Rosemary Beach Series. Finally, we get the backstory on Tripp and Bethy! We knew Tripp was a good guy when he helped out Della, but Bethy didn’t seem to have many redeeming traits in earlier books.
Reading about Bethy’s past and her emotional struggles, she becomes a much more sympathetic and likable character. My favorite Bethy quote:
Only Tripp. No one else had looked at me that way after sex. … Because once you knew that look, it was hard to accept less. The warm feeling that ran through me, making me feel cherished and special, was all because of that look.
Tripp’s never-ending love for Bethy makes him an attractive character. His dirty talk makes him sexy as hell. My favorite Tripp quote:
In that moment, I realized I wasn’t her second-best. What we had was bigger than anything else she’d had. Even with Jace. Knowing I meant more to her was a game changer. I’d move fucking mountains to give her what she needed.
