Kiro’s Emily by Abbi Glines

4.5 stars AbbiGlines-KirosEmily


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 is a quick steamy novella that reads away easily and will have you smiling at least half the time – the other half you’ll be blushing. It tells us the story of the man behind the rock star. The story of how meeting the right person can change your look on the whole world forever.

We knew the legend. If you’ve read Take A Chance, you also know there’s is more to Kiro Manning than that ever since he walked into Emily. What we didn’t know was who she is as a person.

Now we do.

And I can totally see how Kiro fell for this woman. She’s sweet, caring and shy. She sees the good in people and has a huge heart. One of the reasons I loved to be 20 years back, because her loving heart shows around children, too. Yes, I am talking about Rush as a little kid. My. God. He was already an adorable charmer at the age of 2. So cute. That alone is reason enough to read this novella. But there’s more.

We get to see where Harlow has her amazing personality from. And the fire from Kiro, because, wow! When it comes to Emily, he would do anything if it made her happy. The possessiveness Kiro feels over Emily is even higher than what I’m used to from Abbi’s other books in the Rosemary Beach series, but it fitted with a rock legend. They see the world in a different perspective and act like it.

What makes this book even better next to all of the above? It was a Christmas present, so it’s free! What are you waiting for? Abbi never disappoints 😉
