Book Summary

Being the good girl isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Ashton Gray has grown weary of playing the part to please her parents, and to be worthy of the town’s prince charming, Sawyer Vincent. Maybe That’s why she’s found herself spending time with Sawyer’s cousin, Beau, while he’s away for the summer camping with his family. Beau is nothing like her perfect boyfriend. He’s the sexiest guy she’s ever seen, dangerous in ways she’s only day dreamed about, and the one guy she should stay away from.

Beau never envied Sawyer his loving parents, his big nice home, or his position as quarterback. He loves him like a brother. Which is why he's tried everything in his power to keep his distance from Sawyer’s girlfriend. Even if he has loved her since the age of five, Ashton is Sawyer’s girl, so therefore she’s off limits. But when Sawyer leaves for the summer, Ashton, the one girl Beau would move Heaven and Earth for, decides she wants to get into trouble. Stabbing the one person who’s always accepted him and stood by him in the back, is the cost of finally holding Ashton Gray in his arms. Is she worth losing his cousin over?.... Hell Yeah.

My Review

Let me just say, that this cover captured my attention long before I read the book.  I picked it up one day on a special and I don’t regret.  I kind of regret waiting to read it though.  It has the drama I love.

So, this story is self explained in the summary.  I didn’t however read the summary before I read the book.  Sometimes I think summaries give too much away.  Although I do read them sometimes, I try not to read right before I start the book.  I don’t want to expect anything.  I wasn’t the whole experience with the mysteries to unfold as I turn the pages.  I digress.

The characters in the story are portrayed well.  This is a two point of view story and Abbi keeps it real.  The language and scenes are gritty but certainly believable.
That takes us into the storyline.  Wow, we’ve all seen the love triangle, but this one didn’t remind me of any other story and I was so into it.  Although one boy captured my heart, the other wasn’t too far behind.  At some points I was rooting for the other boy.
My only complaint is that I think the book was a little short.  Okay, so I wanted more.  But more than that, I thought things wrapped up a little too easily.  There was more conflict to be had.  And of course, I went to look for the next book and it wasn’t available.
It looks like the book has been given out as an ARC.  I’m pleading to the author to save me from my misery and offer me a copy of Vincent Brother, please.  Well enough of my shameful pleading.
Do I recommend? YES.  When to read? soon. I won’t say now because the next book isn’t out yet.  So read when you can.  And do read.
I look forward to more fromt his author.
My book boyfriend is Beau.
