Beau is the sexiest guy she’s ever seen, and even though he’s dangerous, Ashton is drawn to him.

Beau loves his cousin like a brot...more

(except I didn't throw my reader through the window, only on my bed... but you get my point)

Well I don't know what to say about this book other than I'm VERY disappointed in how the story went.

Image Hosted by

From reading the blurb, I kinda got the idea this would be a forbidden love kind of thing, they were in love but couldn't be together cause she was dating his cousin for three years now.

No forbidden love here cause the MCs don't actually give a sh*t :D

It's time to write this review. Oh man,I want to barf. If you thought Breathe sucked check this 'jewel' out.

It started out great:Chick's(Ashton) boyfriend(Sawyer) goes on some motherfu***ng mountain trip and leaves her all alone with her her stupid religious parents and what's a girl to do than to rekindle her friendship with a towns bad boy(Beau)... Anyway,she hooks up with Beau and when I say she hoops up i mean-the preacher's daughter f***...more
This is one hot and steamy story! Don't plan on doing anything else when you start this. I found I couldn't put it down! (I apologize up-front for the over usage of: !s and all-around gushing).

Ashton, Beau, and Sawyer were inseparable childhood friends. Beau and Sawyer, "the Vincent boys" are cousins, but its Ashton and Beau who are close. These two are the town's little hell-raisers, and Sawyer is the one usually bailing them out of trouble, and encouraging them to mend their ways. All this ch...more

First off, Abbi Glines is amazing.

Secondly, ok, let's be real.

About half way through this book, I contemplated putting it down. Not that the story wasn't good, but because I was so emotional about it and I didn't see a way for anyone, not anyone, to have a happy ending. I was saying to myself, "Abbi, how dare you! You hook me and then break my heart!!"
But of course, Abbi knows how to finagle a story. The way she brings all things in, all people, all walks of life makes for a beautiful story. T...more
This is going to be a quickie - I'm just going to rant about the things I didn't like.

First things first: The plot. The plot is very, very unoriginal, at first I guess that is what drew me in, knowing the story and ultimately just loving the swoon worthy moments books like this promise however I have to say it turned out that the plot is one the things that I disliked most about this book. I felt myself yearning for the MC for once to end up with the safe, 'good' boy - what can I say? I wanted...more
I'm going to break a little hard-and-fast rule I have for myself. It's no biggie, just something I try to never do. Here goes: OMG, Y'ALL!! Ridiculous right? I have no problem with others saying OMG, it's just sounds ridiculous when I say it. But, OMG, OMG, OMG! The Vincent Boys completely rocked my world!

I was in a bit of a reading slump. I had been reading some awesome books (The Iron Queen and Bad to the Bone). And then, Zzzzzzz. The books (who will not be named) are not bad, just, ya know,...more

5 Sexy Stars!

And THAT is how you handle a love triangle...

Abbi Glines astounds me! Her writing is so consistently brilliant and the excitement in turning that first page always makes me feel as if I'm unwrapping a gift. Her heroes display the perfect ratio of bad boy and sweetheart qualities...and those sexy Vincent boys are no exception! That said, I still find Abbi's characters to be distinct and vary considerably from book to book—never giving me the feeling that I've met a character before i...more

I haven't written a review in... months, but I feel so strongly about this book I can't help putting down my opinion here.
Oh my.
Is this a book?
If it weren't from the fact that it was free I'd be pissed. And I thought it would be a safe bet.
Where should I start from? The tons of grammatical mistakes? The terrible, terrible dialogues missing all punctuation?
The story so similar to Liz Reinhardt's Junk Miles which she managed to write way better?
The unbelievable plot where a girl stays for three ye...more
I grew up in the Southern US, and clearly so did Abbi Glines. It's disappointingly rare for someone to nail the Southern temperament, even when they live there. Either it seems affected or stereotypical. Neither appeals to those of us who know better. There are old rules at play that can seem archaic if you don't understand how they work - and how they're worked around. The Vincent Boys proves it knows the landscape quicker than a duck on a Junebug.

Ashton is a good girl, with a good heart. It's...more
* * * * * 5 First Love Stars * * * * *

Ashton, Sawyer, and Beau grew up together and were best friends. Beau always saw Ashton as his partner in crime, always up for some mischief, until the day everything changed…Sawyer asked Ashton out.

They were no longer the three amigos, and eventually Beau was pushed out.

Fast forward years later: Beau has turned into the town bad boy, Ashton is the perfect preacher’s daughter, and Sawyer is the perfect...everything.

Ashton, still dating Sawyer, is living l...more
The Vincent Boys is simply fantastic. The story of a girl whose heart is torn between two boys, her perfect boyfriend Sawyer who is loved and admired by all and his cousin Beau, the local bad boy who is sexy and irresistible.

There are several reasons why I think The Vincent Boys is incredible and here are just a few of them.

Even though it is a YA book it is a lot more mature and sexy than most, so if like me you are on the higher side of the young adult age bracket (or are older than that) and a...more

Wow! I just finished this book in one sitting. I could. not. put. it. down! Talk about steamy!!! I'm pretty sure I'm in love with Beau. Like seriously in love. What a great, great book!!!
Ash: “Salve, gente. Il mio nome è Ashton, e sono vergine perchè il mio ragazzo è un tipo casa e chiesa. Ma io ho un po' l'animo della troietta, e voglio disperatamente farmi suo cugino Boh.”

Voci fuori campo: “Ma no, non puoi! Così ti rovinerai la reputazione!”

Ash: “Ehi guys, c'avete ragione. Ma io ho proprio una voglia...”

Fu così che Ashton e "Boh" incominciarono a slinguazzare spensierati, a giocare a biliardo, a fare le capriole nei posti più romantici del mondo (…) e a sentirsi in colpa per...more
4.5 Stars!

Abbi Glines has a way with the boys! The Vincent Boys stole my heart and earned an all inclusive stay in my daydreams!

Beau, Sawyer, and Ashton shared trouble and love while growing up in a small, southern town filled with gossip, gossip, and more gossip. The Vincent family is the town’s star attraction and main source of gossip. Sawyer fills the all around Mr. Perfect, good boy role. Beau balances out the town with his beautiful bad boy reputation. Every town needs a bad boy—thank goo...more
3.5 stars

Compared to the amount of paranormal and fantasy books I read, contemporary or realistic fiction is not an area I delve into all that often. When I do choose to read a book in the genre, it has nearly always been a moving, heartfelt story – not anything like The Vincent Boys. In fact, the cover for this book is enough to tell me that this book and I are not meant to be. A lollipop and bright green font? Yeah…not me at all. Strange thing was that I actually wanted to read this book. I wi...more

Wow! Abbi Glines knows how to write a bad boy.

I loved being in Beau's head and hearing what he was thinking. Beau totally stole the show in this book. Ashton said it best, "When did you get all sweet and charming?" Every girl wants a bad boy who will be good just for her!

I'm not a fan of love triangles and that is one of reasons why I didn't like the book Thoughtless. Even though this book was about a love triangle I totally loved it. Abbi Glines did a...more

2.5 stars. My low rating is only for some strange behavior quirks but The Vincent Boys wasn't a bad way to pass a couple of hours, even if the book had a few moments that I could have lived without.

For the most part, this was a quick, simple, and somewhat entertaining love story - with a few glaring flaws.

Beau - He's the stereotypical bad boy in a stereotypical story. He's hot; he knows it; he flaunts it. Yet, he has a soft side because he carries a torch for the one girl he's always wanted but...more

SUMMARY (50 words or less)

Going in I didn’t read the summary. I wanted a fresh read. Boy, my mouth dropped and was held agape through most of this story. I was captured in this story’s grip until the final pages. My heart was conflicted between the two boys. My only complaint, it ended.

Pre-read: So apparently I'm going to end up reading this because I realized, in belated measure, that I actually *own* this book. (I honestly do not remember getting this at all - I guess it was either a Kindle Freebie or I got it for .99 when it was on sale, gah).

Would be against my nature to not read it since it's in my library, but here's to hoping it's better than I think it will be.

Post read: I'm having a war of ratings between my head and my gut. My gut's telling me to rate this 1-star and...more
Joy (joyous reads)
I have a confession to make. I uploaded Kindle on PC at work because of this book. I wasn't going to, I swear! But I kept reading some glowing reviews that I just had to check it out myself. As soon as I got to the first two pages, I pretty much kissed productivity goodbye. I'm awful, I know! I have to uninstall this program before the IT gets wind of it. Can you imagine how much trouble I'm going to be in? I shudder to think.

This is quite possibly one of my favourite contemporary lit of the yea...more

Aaah, I feel so bad for loving such a morally wrong book! Lol! I know I shouldn't want characters to be deceptive, cheating and hurtful, but I looove Ashton and Beau together!

My heart did break for Sawyer though. Just needed to put that out there, before I condemn myself as a cold hearted bitch. Oh, bless Sawyer. He did nothing wrong, he was a sweet, kind, gorgeous, loving boyfriend and they hurt him. :( I do feel, strongly, in real life, that there is no excuse for infidelity and lies, like tho...more

2 ½ Stars

Genre: Contemporary Young Adult Romance
Heat Barometer: 2 out of 5 stars
Written from alternating POV’s of Beau & Ashton

I was so excited to start this YA series because I heard it had a more mature rating for YA and a big love triangle. It just didn’t do it for me, I think mainly because I didn’t feel any warmth for the characters. They seemed selfish and immature, I do realize it was YA and they were only 17 years old and I think they definitely...more
Why do I read? For pleasure, to make me happy, to satisfy myself. This book did all those things and more.... review to come.

Ashton Gray had been friends with Beau and Sawyer Vincent since early grade school.
Born mischief makers Ashton and Beau had a special connection getting themselves into all sorts of trouble,leaving Sawyer to get them out of it.None of them wanted anything to change, but of course it does. As they grow up the boys start to notice Ashton change, as boys will. Now a beautiful...more

Oh. My. Holy. BEAU!! Okay, I moved from NJ to GA a few years ago, and Southern culture is incredibly interesting to me...since I recently got a fabulous GA born-and-bred sis-in-law, I've had a little peak into what life is like in the South. And I've been obsessed!

Along came Abbi Glines's amazing book, and I feel like I LIVED here during my teenage years! I feel like I got a sneak peek into a world I've been on the outside of for the last few years. And I'm SO IN LOVE!! First of all, I adored A...more
“I was already headed for Hell, I might as well enjoy the ride.”

I really enjoyed this one. It was quick, light, and entertaining. My first Abbi Glines read! It was the perfect choice after my heavy The Fault in Our Stars hangover.

The plot is pretty basic... About three childhood friends, Ashton and cousins Beau and Sawyer. All grown up Ashton and Sawyer are the "perfect" couple and Beau is the town "black sheep." While Sawyer is away for the summer, Ashton and Beau rekindle their friendship an...more

Not for me.
Not a big Beau and Ashton fan.
Whether or not Sawyer knew the real Ashton or thought she was too perfect, cheating is not romantic. Oh poor Ashton your boyfriend thinks you are too perfect what a real bummer why don't you go cheat on him with his cousin?!?!?!?!?! Ashton and Beau haven't spoken in years, then all of a sudden as soon as her boyfriend is out of town they are all over each other?!?! Gross. I stopped reading before I got really upset.

Omg I love Abbi!!! She never disappoints with her awesome stories! This book was amazing. My love for Beau Vincent is as strong as my love for Jace!!! Okay so much to say....will post review after my vacation.

Edited Review:

Okay, so upon reading this awesome book....I had asked Abbi for a signed copy and she told me she'd me one. I was stoked, I mean Jesus all the hype that revolved around Beau was making me impatient. So I downloaded it on my kindle app since it was not available for nook at th...more
This is quite possibly the best contemporary I have EVER read. I enjoyed every minute of The Vincent Boys. I didn't want it to end. It is one of those books that you wish had unlimited pages to turn. You just want to keep reading it forever.

Beau is just plain awesomeness. He is just a guy made up purely of awesome! I want a few Beau's on hand at all times for me. Now you all know, that I am not normally one for the bad boys- but I didn't find Beau to be bad. Not really. He cared so much about A...more
La dualidad chico bueno - chico malo me ha atraído desde siempre, sobretodo cuando el lado tierno del malo salía a la luz y el bueno se desmelenaba un poco; es genial cuando ambos personajes te seducen por igual a pesar de ser totalmente opuestos, por no hablar de ese momento en el que tomas un bando y tiras tomates a los que escogieron el contrario. Cuando leí Memorias de Idhún, me enamoré de la dulzura de Jack; cuando devoré Susurros, el misterio y el semblante oscuro de Morfeo me cautivaron....more
Can I just grin all day? This book is gawdsmackin' hot! I was giddy the entire time I was reading it. Abbi Glines sure knows how to make absolutely drool-worthy guys and swoon-worthy scenes. This is my third book of her and she's quickly becoming one of my favorite authors.

I had put off this book for quite a long time because when I read the synopsis I thought it would be something really frustrating, with the main guy liking his cousin's girlfriend and the girl feeling the same way. It's somet...more
