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...more

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...more
"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

5 Sea Breeze Alabama Stars!!

"She thought I was like Cage and the right girl could tame me. It wasn't about that. I didn't need taming. I needed fucking saving."

Preston Drake...

Amanda Hardy is Marcus’ little sister. She is so very sweet and head over heels in love with her brother’s best friend, the king of one night stand’s Preston Drake. Preston is a wonderful brother, a loyal friend and athlete who lives a hard hard life. He also hides a pretty big secret.

When Amanda’s fantasies become reali...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.

“I love you.

I need Preston & Amanda's story NOW PLEASE!!!!

Edit 21st Aug= OMG fan-girling the summary just made my day and that's saying alot as I got 2 ARC's for review from my 2012 wish list today as well but Abbi has them beat

Edit 8th Nov=freaking EPIC. I loved it sooooo much.

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...more

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’m not what you think. I’m so much worse.

I didn’t need taming. I needed fucking saving.

Amanda – strong, sweet, loves Preston with everythin...more
I already knew i was going to like this book when I read a teaser and boy did I like it!

For start this is very adult book ...


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!
What would you do if you find out that you're deeply in love with a gigolo and that that gigolo is your dream guy that still works and sleeps with older women?
I can tell you that i...more

Reviewed on:

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...more
Autumn Review
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...more

**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.
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!
You have 3 seconds...




I cannot remember anything in this book but...more
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

5 Stars
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...more
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...more

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!

Lisa Jayne

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.

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

Saw Preston's name and shouted 'LOVE IT' my dad must have thought WTF!
It's so gonna be Preston and Amanda. I wonder how Marcus will act if his sister hooks up with manslut Preston
Hearts don’t realize they’ve been lied to. They still love anyway.

Oh my!! First chapter shocked at the same time I'm swooning!!! I have to checked again coz I think this is a YA book. My heart goes to Prestone. No matter how fucked up he is, he have reasons. Just when I thought Cage & Eva was the best Good-Girl meets Bad-boy in this series, Prestone exceed my expectation. Towns much in demand Gigolo,& man whore who will never be good enough with the princess l...more

So I haven't read the first three Sea Breeze books and I started with the fourth one. YAY ME! Haha. Anyway, I have a wonderful time reading this! I enjoyed it a lot.

My favorite lines:

“I disagree. You’re special, Preston Drake. I think I've been in love with you since my sixteenth birthday and you came to my bonfire party on the beach with Marcus. You winked at me and called me beautiful. From that moment on I watched you. I was fasc...more
Annie Brewer
OH, I can't wait for this!!!! Preston and Amanda??? Yes, please!! WOOT! Abbi, you are one AWESOME story teller!!!!
Okay I don't know it anymore now
Marcus, cage, Preston...
Can I have a piece of all 3 of them please?


As usual:

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...more
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...more

I will never get tired of Abbi Gline's novels. From Vincent Boys to Sea Breeze series, I just can't get enough! I have no words but to say.. WOW! I was swooning all over the book for a day! It just keeps getting better, hotter, and makes me panting for more! (Damn Preston). Adored it!

“I love you with a scary, insane, wild, amazing love. I always will. No one else could ever make me feel this way” - Preston Drake.

I have been doing my happy dance since I first heard about this and I cant seem to stop until the day it will be released. :)
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...more
Tsk, tsk, tsk Abbi, wher r u pulling them bad boys from?!

I feel like a cigarette would be appropriate right now haha.

(There might be some spoilers!)

Of all the Abbi's damaged boys Preston is the worst of the bunch in my opinion. I really enjoyed hating him :). And I though that the Cage was as bad as they get. I don't want to give too much away, but the word "manwhore" got whole another meaning in this story :). He had his good moments too, but every nice thing he said was followed by something...more
I want more, no I need more! Abbi did it again. Another amazing book in the Sea Breeze series. Preston's story broke my heart. He lived a hard life and did want he needed to do to take care of the people he loved the only way he knew how. (view spoiler) I'm going to be very sad when th...more
*Squee* Preston and Amanda? Damn, I wonder how Marcus is going to react to this!


Just for Now es el cuarto libro en la serie Sea Breeze de Abbi Glines.

En Just for Now tenemos la historia de Preston, quien aparece desde el primer libro en la serie, Breathe, y es mejor amigo de Marcus (Because of Low), y Amanda Hardy, hermana pequeña de Marcus.

Sin duda alguna, Just for Now ha sido una gran adición a esta serie que me encanta, a excepción del primero of course! Este libro tiene mucho más cont...more
