Overview

One memory.
One special summer.
The one thing Bliss had lost herself in when the fear and sickness were too much, moments never to be damaged by the harsh reality that followed... until now.

Bliss York didn't live a normal teenage life. She didn't go to Friday night football games, walk the halls with her friends every day, go to her prom or even walk to receive her diploma. It had all been taken from her the fall that she was fifteen years old and she was given the diagnosis no one ever wants to hear.

She had leukemia.

Seven years after spending a summer with a girl who he knew would always be his first love and the one who got away, Nate Finlay returns to Sea Breeze to help his fiancé open her new boutique clothing store. When the new employee walks in Nate is taken back seven years to the girl he thought he'd love forever. The one who never answered his calls or returned his text. The one who shut him out completely with not even a goodbye and broke his heart.

They've each become someone different. No longer the young teens with stars in their eyes. But does that matter when your heart still says that's the one.

Rush and Cage's book were two of my favorites series , so I was excited when I thought this would be another favorite. Especially if its about their children. I was disappointed because it was too rushed. There was no build up to their relationship. This book could have been so much better if the author had just taken a little bit more time with it. This book appeared to be the first of another series the author will be writing. Several new characters that are the children of all of her other series made an appearance in this book. If this is what I can expect then I'm not going to bother.

I loved getting back into this world, Breathe was my first New Adult book many years ago and I can still remember how it affected me, it showed me a whole new world of books and for that I’ll be forever thankful to Abbi Glines. In Like a Memory we meet the children of our favorite couples from Sea Breeze and Rosemary Beach but do not fear if you haven’t read those series because you can totally read this one as a standalone and you will enjoy it just the same. This one is about Nate and Bliss, they met when they were younger and then at 15 they had a bit of a summer romance, Nate thought it was more than that but when Bliss stopped returning his texts and calls he gave up. Years have gone by and now he is back on the beach town where he met Bliss and it seems like fate when they meet again, only this time is different because Nate is engaged to Bliss’s boss. Now if you like me don’t care for love triangles then don’t fret because this book does not have one, I know Nate’s engaged and I don’t really know how to explain it but it never felt like a love triangle it felt like Nate and Bliss from the very beginning and it stayed that way throughout the book. The book is exactly what I love about Abbi’s writing, it was sweet, sexy and full of angst (not too much angst, just the right amount) and it also had that quality that I’ve come to associate with Abbi, what quality is that you ask? Well, it’s the fact that you can’t stop reading!!! There are so many more characters that I want to know about and I’m sure Abbi is going to give them amazing stories!

I loved this book. I hope it's just the beginning. The best part is the connection of Rosemary Beach and Sea Breeze. It definitely left me wanting more!

'm honestly not sure why this book is getting all the negative reviews? It was a great start to a new series. I loved Nate. He's a little bit of Rush and Blaire. He's got Blaire's heart. When he loves,he loves. He got his heart broken one summer,and never really got it back. Watching him sort his feelings and make mistakes made this book. Bliss, I loved her. She's a fighter. She's been through alot,and is still full of life and caring. She gave up heart once,and now she's fighting to get it back. I can't wait to read more!

I was definitely disappointed and I soooo wanted to love this book! The story is rushed and as a result, I did not feel that the characters ever connected. I've read all the Rosemary Books (loved each and every one!!!!) and just started the Sea Breeze but not sure I'll continue because the offsprings annoyed me so much! What's with the names?! Saffron??? You might as well name a character Cinnamon.....Anyway, I digress. Both characters esp Bliss didn't seem to care all that much about Nate being engaged.....esp since Bliss is supposed to be this innocent pure soul. If it's done right, one can feel sympathetic towards this type of romance(Karina Halle's Love in Spanish), but both characters acted so juvenile. Bliss totally acted like she was 15 rather than 22. When Bliss tells Nate to leave then flip flops and tells him to stay and "forces"/"begs" for a date, I totally lost all respect for her. I don't mind meek/shy female leads in fact I sometimes prefer them to feisty annoying heroines, but Bliss was too much. She is supposed to be this shy blushing girl and when they go on this date she acts like a porn star and Nate's dirty commentary is just as bad. I love hot sex scenes as much as the next person but it just didn't mesh with these 2 characters. Again it just felt rushed. Then in the final 3rd of the book, tragedy strikes and instead of shock and sadness for the victims, Bliss immediately blames Octavia. Eli was better in being sympathetic to the situation. I felt Bliss was supposed to be this goodhearted soul, yet she did not have much compassion for someone who was in a very dark place. Ultimately Octavia was to blame for her actions but there were extenuating circumstances too. And while Nate felt the burden of guilt, Bliss really didn't acknowledge the part she played in this tragedy. As you can tell, I had a problem with Bliss.....and I don't know why Nate had such commitment/intimacy issues. The book kept hammering on about how good the home relationships were for all the kids. It would have made a better story if what happened with Octavia came before he met up with Bliss.....because then he would have a reason to be distrustful of relationships. Again there was a disconnect there with the Nate character. I finished the book because it is like am extended epilogue for the Rosemary beach series but I wished I liked it more.

Having read the earlier series it was great to see them tied together. I enjoy these characters and their children's stories are just as awesome! This was Nate and Bliss story that showed glimpses of the other characters we've grown to love.

Decent story, though other's within both related series I feel have more depth and better charecter developement. There were also a lot of grammer and sentence structure issues. There are hints of Abbi Glines writing magic and the book is worth reading though at 179 pages a little short for $3.99; but I get it, the author has to eat. I would just hope that should she continue with the "next generation" stories, to take some time and reflect on what made the first books in the two series so wonderful and her readers so loyal. *
