The day Preston Drake figured out that wealthy women paid well for a set of tight abs and a pretty face his life turned around.

The run down rat-infested trailer he had shared with his alcoholic mother and three younger siblings was now only a place he visited to pay the bills and stock the pantry with food.

He no longer worried about his family starving or living without e

WARNING: This was a FAIRLY ADULT book so its only fitting that it have a FAIRLY ADULT review.... you have been warned :)

OH LORDY, LORDY, LORDY... have mercy... i've fallen to my knees servicing Preston errmmm... praising the Gods... You know unlike A LOT of people, i DID NOT read the teasers of Just For Now that Abbi had up on her Facebook page. Why? Because i KNEW that ONE small bite of Preston would not satisfy me... i needed that WHOLE DAMN PRESTON ENCHILADA!!! So when i started reading, with

"Ohhhh, Preston. Come here you sexy bitch." <----- Those may or may not have been the words that passed my lips when I began reading Just For Now. You see, I've known Preston Drake for quite some time now, but I was oh so ready to know him better. Since we first met him, in Breathe, Preston has been known as a guy who knows his way around the ladies, to put it mildly. He has a fondness for all the beautiful girls, but especially when they have a nice pair of legs attached. That's not usually ...more

**4.75 STARS**

I lucked out with my local online library because I got this one and While It Lasts back to back. Just For Now was an enjoyable audio. Hopefully my online library will get the other books in this series because currently it doesn't own them.

Abbi Glines created another likable tale with a younger sister, Amanda, in love with her older brother's best friend, Preston. But this tale has a twist because for the hero to support his younger siblings he has become a gigolo.

5 PRESTON STARS!!!!!

This is my FAVORITE Abbi Glines book so far! Of course, if Ms. Glines wrote a story about a dust bunny, I would love it!!! Just For Now made me smile, grin, giggle, laugh out loud…..and cry.

PRESTON!!! – jerk, dirty mouth, sexy sex machine = one of my favorite book boyfriends ever! He makes me laugh and cry at the same time!

My Preston:

I don't know what it is about this author.
I have tried a few books from this series and it hasn't gone well.

I couldn't finish the second book, Because of Low, due to a serious lack of interest in the characters and story. But the next book in the series, While It Lasts, looked so good I had to try it.
It was good.
I honestly can't explain why, even though I liked that book, I couldn't find anything exciting to say about it? It's like when you go on a date with a good-looking guy. He's nice and

It's really amazing how Abbi Glines can always make me fall in love with one of her characters! I mean why do they all have to be so yummy?!?!? Preston was no different!

I absolutely love the Sea Breeze series by Abbi Glines so I was beyond excited for Preston and Amanda’s story. Once again Abbi did not disappoint by writing this blinder of a story which had me hooked from the start. The books in this series can be read as stand-alone, however if you’re anything like me, you’ll want to read in order to get to know all the characters and their backgrounds.

I have to say I found this one to be the most emotional

I have been waiting and waiting for Amanda's book. I have loved this girl since I met her in Breathe. Something about her, just spoke to me. Well, my wait is over and I couldn't have picked a better match for her. Preston is one smokin guy.

Amanda has had her eye on Preston for a long time. The problem is that Preston is her brother Marcus' best friend. Well...that and he's a big player. In a desperate attempt to get some kind of attention from him, they have one hot night together. The thing is

Disclaimer: I have nothing against sex in books, as long as if it is a LOVE story, there is actual LOVE.


You heard the song Sex On The Beach?

Yes? Well change it to: "I wanna have sex anytime, anywhere and claim I'm in love." And you've got the plot of this whole book.



No, wait they did have sex on a beach....




If you love books with loads of sex scenes and nearly no plot, stop reading this review and pick up the book!

**2.75 stars**

Dual POV's saved this book for me, along with Preston's relationship with his brothers and sister.

My biggest problem was that Amanda was too much of a doormat.



I can sympathize with what it was like to be 18 and in love, but come on....where were her friends to help her pull her head out of her ass at times. Self-respect girl, self-respect.

OH.MY.GOD.
I think I actually melted into a puddle of goo!!!
My one major complaint about this books was that it was TOO SHORT!
I want soooooo much more! More Preston Drake!More Seabreeze! More everything!
I can't believe that I nearly didn't read these books just cause I wasn't a fan of Breathe (Sea Breeze, #1) by Abbi Glines but I am so glad a friend of mine convinced me to read While It Lasts (Sea Breeze, #3) by Abbi Glines (thanks Jul's) and I really need to go back now & read Because of Low (Sea Breeze, #2) by Abbi Glines

Throughout most of this book, I was fully prepared to give it three stars. Before I get into the delightful reasons why I could not, let me explain where I was going with this.

So, I don't have an easy time going to sleep, and I wanted something light and fluffy to read, something I would fall asleep to without realizing it. So, cheesy light corny romance it is! I was wary about picking something "New Adult" as I've had serious issues with most of the ones I've tried so far, but it was getting la

Genre: Contemporary, Mature Young Adult Romance
Heat Barometer: 4 out of 5 stars
Written from alternating POV's of Preston and Amanda


I know this is categorized as YA, but it is in no way what I would consider YA even with the label Mature. That is why I probably loved it so much because I got the young carefree characters with raging hormones and hot young bodies. And the relationship starts off quick, "slambam thank you mam". This and the last book in this series, While It Lasts, are absol

I have to say... Abbi Glines is a fantastic author! I love everything she writes- everything! Just for now was no exception! She was able to take a character (Preston) that was just okay for me in the other books and made me fall in love with him! I loved Preston! Like he seriously gave Cage a run for his money and that is really saying something!!!! His story was heartbreaking at times, but he was so wonderful! Amanda leads a totally different life than Preston. She may have some family issue ...more

OMG! AMANDA HARDY and PRESTON DRAKE?!! *squeal!*

11/11/12:
I.LOVED.IT!!!! This series is getting sexier and hotter as hell! I'm so in love with PRESTON DRAKE!! Looks can be deceiving right? Hohoho!

"I love you. I love you so damn much it consumes me. I don't deserve you, but I'm gonna be the man who does deserve you. I promise you. I'll make you proud of me."

I'm 100% sure, I'm going to read this book over and over again! Teehee!

5 HUGE ROMANTIC. LOVELY. HEART STOPPING. HEART RACING. ADDICTIVE. UNPUTDOWNABLE. STARS

I am OFFICIALLY in love with this story. It had gorgeous drawn out tension, a great build up, fabulous story telling and the cherry on the top - A misunderstood bad boy who needs to be loved. Need I say more? Abbi Glines has really delivered with this nicely presented treat, and I'm now a firm (slightly stalkerish) fan.

Preston and Manda were perfect! I loved Prestons Bro’s and sister!

Preston Drake may be a manwhore, but I feel hard for him. I mean yes Preston was a giggilo, but who cares? He was an AMAZING older brother. An Amazing lover. And an even better friend. I mean yeah at the start when he took her V card plastered? ASSHOLE! But redeemed himself in my eyes.

My favorite lines:

What a great story it was! I loved it from the first page till the last one. Preston is perfect and i always loved Amanda from the previous books.. Together they are the ultimate big-brother's-best-friend couple.


So what if Preston has to do a very "interesting" job in order to support and provide for his siblings? Does it matter that he is the biggest playboy around? And even if he is broody and untaineable??? So what? He is the one for Amanda!


Well of course someone has to tell him that, because

As usual:
***SPOILER ALERT***

Glines definitely comes a long way since her first Sea Breeze book Breathe. Just as with the previous 2 books, I was sucked into this story immediately and I enjoyed every page. Of course I can't help myself to compare... It's pretty obvious Glines is making her books more naughtier now than Breathe but that's not the reason I liked Breathe less. It's because in

5 Stars? No stars needed, just read it.

Preston. The bold print should already tell how I feel about him. There was nothing YA or "new adult" about him. Abbi makes it so darn hard to choose a favorite when all her heroes are so damn sexy and delicious and yummy and sweet and.... You get the picture. I'll just say he was sex on a stick. Yeah that's it.

This book was definitely worth the hype. When I first read the snippet I wasn't so sure I'd get behind the idea of him ummm, "lending" himself for

Finally, I got my hands on it, and it was undeniably good. Bad boy-meets-good-girl-they live happily ever after- after surviving some tough challenges along the way.

Abbi Glines never fail to surprise me and keep me wanting more from this series. Yes, this series still ranked number one on my favorites and I'm still craving for more.

I'm glad to be back in Sea Breeze and see some familiar faces along the way. This time, Marcus' sister, Amanda is about to get her happily ever after - if she can c
