TitleKiro's Emily (Rosemary Beach)
Author: Abbi Glines
Publisher: Atria Books (December 15, 2014)

The year is 1992, and no one on the rock music scene is hotter than Kiro Manning, the lead singer of Slacker Demon. With a multi-platinum record, total ownership of the Billboard charts, sold-out concerts, and sinful amounts of money, Kiro can have anything—and anyone—he wants.

So when a dark-haired, conservative beauty rebuffs him at a concert after-party, his first thought is, “Who the hell does she think she is?” His second thought: “How do I make her mine?” Kiro has always loved a good challenge, but not every girl wants to get involved with a rock god. Especially this girl.

He let her go that night, but he never forgot her. And when they met again, he vowed not to give up again so easily.

As the world worshipped Kiro, he came to worship the girl, who became everything he never knew he needed. The only girl he would ever love. His Emily.

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Abbi Glines comes a heart-wrenching e-novella in the Rosemary Beach series about the star-crossed romance between Kiro and Emily, first introduced in Take a Chance. This is Abbi’s holiday gift to the devoted fans of the series.

Kiro's Emily has joined "One More Chance" as one of my favourite reads of 2014. Abbi Glines did not hold back... she took us to church and back with this one. 
We all know who Kiro Manning is, what we did not know was how he became the way he is and why but now we know how he met and fell in love with Emily. The earth shattering loved they shared and how that was tragically taken away. It was amazing to be transported and given an unfiltered looking into Kiro's world and see how each moment played out. 

"She looks like fucking Snow White. I was testing her, and she passed. She is motherfucking Snow White."
 Emily is embodiment of everything pure sweet, nice and gentle. She is innocent and pure of heart which shines like a halo pulling Kiro right in. From the moment, he laid eyes on her he was knocked for six by her beauty and natural aura. When she turns him down his instant attraction to her deepens; he is Kiro Manning and no one says NO to him. However, it was so much more that she was the opposite of everything he stood for, but Emily is what was missing from his life the light to his dark. 

"God, I was in fucking heaven. Angels were real, and I had one. She was all mine."
I think I was somewhat in shock to see Kiro in a new light, he was complete / still is crazy about Emily his Agel. He did everything in his power to make her his and once he did no one could not even look at her. They had that crazy kind of love I admire. 

"I didn’t think it was possible. But apparently, when it came to Emily, I could fall in love more every day. She had so much to fucking love."
When Kiro Manning loves, he loves true, he loves hard he loves to the point of obsession and damn it was heartbreaking to read knowing how their story would end. 
I cried so much because it was so beautiful and it touched me to the very core of my being. During the previous books, I thought he was such an A**hole but my, God this beautiful man has endured so much. 
My heart bleed for Kiro, he is so much more than a drunken, drugged up Rock Star he is a man who has suffered pain of the worse kind, redemption and love then had it all ripped away but the one continuous fact is; his heart is big and full of love. He loves Emily and will continue to do so until his very last breath.
Seeing the man he became with Emily by his side was amazing, I hope in the future he can find peace again and contentment  (I'm still crying even after reading another book before writing this review) The story just has an emotional affects me.  

“I love you, Emily. I will always love you. This life and the one after and the one after that. I will always only love you.”

Abbi Glines has outdone herself, this novella is epic with deep emotion and the perfect portrayal of a once-in-a-lifetime kind of love. 
Kiro's Emily is written in duel POV, the emotions and depth swallowed me into the pages, every single emotion written by Abbi transcended the pages and engulfed me, I felt EVERY SINGLE WORD.
The story is a knock-out fan's of the Rosemary Beach series you will love this.
Thank You Abbi for sharing Kiro and Emily's story with us. Simply superb
I am never going to be able to think or talk about this book without getting teary, such a hauntingly beautiful story it has completely captivated me. This is a Novella, but it does not feel like that, you get the complete story and then some.....this is the gift that keeps on giving. I have never before read a novella and felt so complete and satisfied by the end. 
Thank You again, Abbi for such a wonderful gift. YOU ARE MY HERO!!!!
This book is an infinity for me 5 Stars is just not enough.

            I knocked on the door, trying hard not to be pissed that this piece of shit apartment complex with no fucking security was Emmy’s home. This wasn’t where I’d been picturing her. And I pictured her a fucking lot.
            Waiting with my hands tucked in the pockets of my jeans, I was trying to remain calm. But fuck it all, I had been waiting to see her face for months. Every time I heard her voice my entire body went on high alert. I couldn’t rein in its attraction to Emmy.
            I heard a chain sliding out of the lock as the door swung open, revealing her in a pair of tiny little shorts and a camisole. Her hair was tangled and her gorgeous eyes were wide.
            “Kiro,” she said, unable to hide the grin that lit up her face. It was midnight. I had changed my flight from London to come here instead of Los Angeles. I didn’t fucking miss my house. I only missed one thing while on tour, and it was this face. Fuck me.
            “I wake you up, angel?” I asked, stepping into her apartment with my hands still firmly stuck in the pockets of my jeans. I didn’t trust them around Emily. They wanted to touch her.
            It was then I realized she had just crawled out of bed. Her hands went to her hair as she ran her fingers through the strands, trying to tame them. But I liked it just the way it was.
“I… you’re here. At my apartment.” She sounded flustered. Then her nose scrunched up and she frowned. “Oh wait. I’m asleep. This is a dream.” Her face fell.
            Fuck it! I took my hands out of my pockets and wrapped her in my arms. She inhaled deeply as I held her to my chest. “I’m real and you’re very awake,” I told her, unable to keep the thickness out of my throat. She got to me. She was fucking with my head. Seriously fucking with it.
            “You feel real.” Her arms came around my waist.
            I closed my eyes and soaked her in. Pressing a kiss to the top of her head, I stood there with her in my arms as long as she would let me. Hell, I would’ve stood there all damn night if she wanted me to.
            “I thought you’d be ready to go home. Aren’t you homesick?” she asked, tilting her head back to look up at me.
            “I was only missing one thing, angel. And it wasn’t in fucking L.A.” I winked as I cupped her face and felt her soft skin under my thumbs as I brushed her cheekbones.
            She frowned a moment. “Do you mean me?”
            I hauled her against me and lifted her inches off the floor as I took the few strides to the sofa and sank down with her in my lap. She didn’t pull away, and God, that felt good. “So fucking sweet,” I murmured as I stared down into her face. I hadn’t made this shit up. She was better than I remembered. Fuck, she was so much better. That voice had gotten me through the tour.
