New Teaser!!

CAGE

“Oh, Cage! I’m so happy for you. This was everything you wanted! You did it!” I slipped my hands in her hair and cradled her head.

“No, Eva. You’re everything I wanted. This is just the insurance that I can provide for you the way you deserve.”

She slipped her arms up my chest and locked her hands behind my neck. “As sweet as that is, I want you to do this for you too. Not for me. This is what

4 CAGE STARS!!!!!



“Mine,” Cage mumbled in his sleep pulling me closer to him. Even in his sleep he knew what I needed. I kissed his chin and smiled. “Yes, I’m yours.”

Sigh…I can’t get enough of Cage. Ms. Glines, you could write 10 books about Cage, and I would love all of them!

My Cage – He’s a bad boy, and you KNOW how much I love a bad boy! Oh yeah, and he has a dirty mouth. Yum! a swagger and a naughty mouth





My Eva: - I love Eva. She is on the serious side, but she does have some shit happen in

3.75-ish stars for the holy hotness that is Cage York!!



I originally rated it a solid 4 but after thinking about it and sleeping on it, I decided to give it a 3.75-ish stars only because of Cage. In a way, this book was okay but it's nowhere near the first book, While It Lasts, story-wise.

"No else for me ever. You're it. you're my always."


Sometimes It Lasts starts off with Cage finally getting a full baseball scholarship at a college in Tennessee. The plan was for Eva to join him there. Unfort

*Revised review*

Before I read the book---->This short review is not based on the book cause I haven't read it due to the ridiculously price the publishers deem it's worth. I'll write my full review once the price has dropped significantly.

My final little review and little bit of rant...

A friend loaned me the book after my rant on how much the book cost and how I wasn't willing to spend $8.98 for not even a 175 page book. While I enjoyed the story and was somewhat happy with it and seeing what

I can't wait to read these!! Sometimes It Lasts is the sequel to While It Lasts continues Cage and Eva's story.

Aman
You all know how much I love Abbi Glines and her equally romantic and sexy books, so it's kills me to say that the fifth book in the Sea Breeze series which featured my favorite couple ever, Cage and Eva, was unfortunately my least favorite Abbi Glines book. Ah, the hurt! I did enjoy Sometimes it Lasts tremendously and that's why I'm giving it 3.5 stars but looking at the bigger picture, I felt like this book added additional drama in Cage & Eva's life and it wasn't really needed.

3.75 Angsty Abbi stars :)

The continuation of Cage and Eva's story, following on the end of Just For Now. Eva and Cage are happily in love and making plans on starting a new life together in Tennessee, when tragedy strikes. Eva must remain in Alabama, and she makes Cage go off to college to fulfill his dreams without her. Over time, the distance takes its toll, and the two find themselves where they never thought they would be: apart.

This book was a sweet, yet angsty story. I know for many she

I really enjoyed catching up with the Sea Breeze gang! I love this series and each and every character in Sea Breeze, Alabama. On the flip side, this book just didn’t wow me like all the others. Still that Cage York is pretty fantastic!

There were a few typos, the price was high and the story was short (164 pages). However, on the positive side, Cage and Eva have alternating povs are still hot and steamy in and out of the barn and have another SWEET hea.

“Make no mistake. There will always be an us. You can pretend like what we had never happened. You can ignore your feelings. Hell, baby, you can even marry Jeremy f*cking Beasley. But there will always be an us. No one and nothing can change that.”

There are sequels and then there are PERFECT sequels, and this is as perfect as a continuation of a favourite story can get. In While It Lasts, we fell in love with Cage York, a bad boy sent to work on a farm during summer because of a DUI, who met

The story itself is fabulous and just what you might expect from Cage York and his "always." They still share that off-the-charts sizzling chemistry and there was plenty of yummy romance and hot steamy sexual encounters. Plenty of angst and trials to overcome between Eva and Cage were also present in this sequel. Between Cage's move to Tennessee on a baseball scholarship and the tragedy Eva faces back home on the ranch, Abbi Glines has once again proven she can execute a captivating storyline. J ...more

About the cover - wasn't Eva a blonde?! EDIT: As Allison pointed out in her commentary Eva is not a blonde! It doesn't matter nor does it influence anything in my review but it's good to have the right facts about the appearance of the characters.

Setting: Fantasy Land. In this land idiocy is a prized possession. Every individual strives to have it but it's easily and freely given. The author is very generous in that way! What's the inspiration for this kind of story?? The minds and the actions o

Whew! Roller coaster of a ride this was! Abbi pretty much makes a comeback (even though she was never really gone) with a another great instalment to the Sea Breeze series. It felt awesome to get back in Sea Breeze with Cage and all the gang.

When you read While It Lasts, you think, aw way! Happy ending for Cage and Eva...little did we know...Abbi had this little beaut up her gorgeous Alabama sleeve! BOOM out pops Sometimes It Lasts like a little book baby!

This book fell flat for me.
Which makes me kinda sad, cause I really wanted to LOVE every page.
Cause who doesn't love a good dose of Cage York?
Especially after While It Last?

It started strong -- the prologue kicked ass. So many emotions. It had some twist in the beginning, which I don't always like, but it hooked me in quick!

And I enjoyed the last 20% a lot.

But the middle was just kinda blah, repetitive, and frustrated me A LOT.

The prologue set the stage for some major twist and turns. B

I can't believe I have to rate this only three stars - I was eagerly anticipating this book all August and I knew by the name alone that things would not bode well for Cage and Eva. But I didn't expect that...

When I read the prologue I as like what in the hell happened? How could things have veered so far off course? Sad to say I didn't like Eva and better and the like I had for Jeremy in the first book sort of cooled off in this one. I felt like all the trouble and everything they went through

TEASER:

Eva

I stood on the porch of my daddy’s house looking out over the familiar land I’d grown up loving. So many memories danced through my head. Once those memories had only been for Josh, my childhood sweetheart, fiancée and now a fallen soldier. He had been my world even after his death. Until Cage York came walking into my life with a swagger and a naughty mouth.
He was nothing like Josh but I’d fallen in love with him anyway. Smiling, I picked up my glass of sweet tea and took a sip. I was

This book made me cry,laugh, get pissed,grieve,love and general made me feel it..

You have to read While It Lasts first(as this one is its sequel) if not even Because of Low so you can see all of Cage York transformation from a player who messes around to the guy in the end of this book...I only hope there are more glimpses of him and Eva in the next books of the series....

I enjoyed this book so much!! I love Abbi Glines as it is so this just boosts my love for her books even more. I loved Cage and Eva. They were so perfect together. The ending and epilogue, PERFECT!

On another note, I wonder if Jeremy will get his own book, I'd definitely read it! So if anybody can put a bug in Abbi's ear, I'm all for it!
Melissa
I was doubting to give this one 4 or 5 stars.. It wasn't as gripping as the first cage and Eva book but
1) it's cage!!!
2) I actually had to cry. Like real tears rolling over my cheeks! I blame it on "it's that time of the month" tho
3) it's CAGE!!!

So hell, 5 stars.

"You're mine, Eva Brooks. Always. You told me that yourself and, sweetheart, I'm holding you to it."

I'm gonna keep this short and sweet just like this story. I honestly don't know what kind of voodoo magic Abbi Glines performs on her novels because they're just so damn addicting. So much so that even if I'm not that impressed with the plot, I still faithfully finish the book and have some feels here and there as well.



This is a perfect example of that kind of addicting feeling because I did ado

Willow: I loved while it Lasts, Eva and Cage's story was my favourite Sea Breeze book, so I was really looking forward to reading their second book, Sometimes it Lasts, unfortunately I was very disappointed.The beginning had my blood pumping a bit, and I wanted to know what had happened to them to be in that situation, but it quickly went down hill from there.

I am sooooooo sad that I dont have Eva and Cage anymore. I tried to read this slowly knowing that this would be the last I got of them but I couldn't put this down. Nobody does it like Abbi Glines. No One. She has this incredible way of sucking you in and not letting you go. Especially with how all of the characters reappear in each book giving you glimpses of their life as well. I cannot say enough about Eva and Cage. Their story was heartbreaking and loving and everything in between. Their dyn ...more
