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... 
“Things worth having don’t come easy. You have to fight for it until you’re tired of fighting, and then you take a breather and fight some more.”
Finally! The long expected story of two people who are given a second chance in love, life and happiness.

Beth’s life has never been easy. A parent who never cared, an aunt who was too strict and a social life with little to be expected. So when Tripp Newark notices her, she can’t but wonder if it’s real.

Tripp is sick and tired of his life. His rich but controlling parents, the fake popularity and even more fake relationships. When he meets Beth, he thinks that he has finally found something worth fighting for. They create a life of memories together in just one summer. But then the dream ends because Tripp couldn’t keep his promises. After their summer together, Tripp left, leaving behind his controlling and demanding parents but his girl too.

He stole her heart, he made promises and he disappeared. In the meantime, Beth lost something more precious than her heart.

Now eight years later, the time has come for Tripp to return home and for Beth to live again.

If only things were that simple.

Beth has been betrayed once and she won’t make the same mistake again. She guards her heart, numbs the pain and instead of living she just exists.

Some things are worth fighting for and Tripp realizes that if he stays away, he might lose his “one” forever.

I wanted to read Beth and Tripp’s story for a very long time. I knew that something terrible must have happened between them for Bethy to feel as she did. But Tripp was so patient, caring, he didn’t push for anything but for Beth to acknowledge her feelings.

An emotional story of forgiveness and second chances. You were mine follows Beth and Tripp’s journey to discovering love once again.

I loved their story. I especially liked the flashbacks, their memories and of course their innocent love. When they were young, their love seemed so easy and simple. Now, their lives are hard and complicated.

I don’t feel that this is the end to their story. It doesn’t feel like one. I hope their story continues.

Totally recommended!

  1. Damn, I didn't realize how long this series was! I've heard a lot of good things about Abbi Glines, too, but I've never gotten the chance to read any of her work. The whole idea of "love being worth fighting for" reminds me a lot of Katie McGarry's Take Me On. I'll definitely have to keep this series on my radar! Lovely review!
