A really good 4.5 stars

I have no words right now!!! I mean I'm seriously too flushed to be talking about anything to anyone!

Oh my god what the hell!?!? It's over? I didn't even notice I finished it!! And now I'm all sad!!! Holy fucking shit Abbi!! What did you do to me!!! I want to go camping sooooooooo bad!! And where is my damn bucket of ice water!?!?!?!

Oh man!!!! I love me some Abbi Glines books and this comes as no surprise that I LOVE this one!!! I have been pining over this book for a LONG time!! I mean that cover is just so sexy for some reason!! But it is NOTHING compared to what is inside the book!

It has been a little bit since I have read Vincent Boys and I have to tell you that I was FIRMLY rooting for Beau! And did not care about Sawyer!!! But no more than about three paragraphs in was I pining all over Sawyer!!! And my heart was starting to break!!

Sawyer Vincent is the perfect catch and has the perfect life. Perfect parents, promising football career and the best girl in the world, Ashton. But that all changed when Ashton’s free spirit couldn’t stay hidden any longer and she was swept away by none other than his BROTHER, Beau. Knowing that Ash and Beau were meant for each other, ever since they were kids it was always Ash and Beau, Sawyer walked away and gave them his blessing.

But six months later, the pain is still there. And now he has to watch the major love of his life, be loved by someone else.

Lana McDaniels has always been second. Second to her perfect cousin, Ash. Second in her family, and never the one to get the attention from the boys. But Lana has had enough. This summer, she was going to be first. And she wants to be first for Sawyer Vincent, her cousins perfect man. But Ash let him go to be with Beau. Lana sees her opportunity to snag up Sawyer before anyone. But she knows that he will never go for the girl she has been, quiet, mousy, safe Lana. But that is going to change, Lana is going to change.

The Vincent Brothers is told in alternating POVs between Sawyer (oh swoon) and Lana (LUCKY SOB!), with a special treat at the end (EEEEP!). I have to say, the more and more I read from alternating POV, the more I really start to love them. And this is no different. We go between Sawyer and Lana through out the whole book. It really adds to the story and is quite stimulating!!!

This book opens right at the epilogue of Vincent Boys, where Ash was sitting at the tree and Sawyer was talking to her, pretty much giving her the freedom she needed. And in Vincent Boys, it was told from Ash and Beau POV and now we get to see what Sawyer was feeling. And people, it’s a whole lot of mess! Abbi opens up with total heartbreak and you quickly feel Sawyer tugging at your heart strings.

Now Beau is a bad boy all the good girls pine over! I mean the things I want to do in the back of his truck bed, well I won’t smut up my blog because then I would have to make this an 18+ blog and and it would be a big mess. But well, hehe yea I’ll leave it there. Lets just say it’s way, WAY steamy what I would do to Beau. HOWEVER!!!! I now want to go camping with Sawyer and I mean LADIES!!! The things I would do in that tent would make a porn star blush! He just took me by surprise! I mean like WOW GIRLS!!! Who knew Sawyer had an inner lion!

I had a couple issues with this book. One it’s NOT LONG ENOUGH!!!!! I could have easily used another 100 pages. I think that everything that happened would have played out better with a 100 more pages. Some things felt rushed and choppy.

Second was Lana was too easy to forgive. And again this could have been fixed with 100 more pages.

The ending felt rushed. Again 100 more pages.

And lastly MORE STEAM! Yes Abbi I said it!! MORE STEAM!! You had something really perfect in the tent and his den but could have used a lot more. Again, could have been solved by 100 more pages. And all 100 pages of more smutty smut yummy smutness!

I feel like we jut barely touched the surface of Sawyer and Lana’s story. And I just wanted more. It was just not enough!

I know I'm a selfish, unsatisfied steam machine, but I want more of Sawyer!!! He is just so yummie and you never see it coming!

I LOVE Jewel. If you want to read a book about a best friend that drives you crazy but fulfills the definition of FIERCLY devoted, read this baby. Jewel is crazy, hot, sexy and a total party girl, but I would LOVE to have her in my corner.

And now Lana!!! Talk about a girl you can totally relate to. Her need to be noticed by her family is completely believable. I truly felt this girl’s pain when she was talking to her mother and the crap her dad did was DISGUSTING! There were some things I didn’t like that Lana did and that was how quickly she forgave Sawyer for what he did. And again, I refer you to my previous comment about needing 100 more pages. I really think that this could be longer! Gah!!!

Overall, Abbi delivers another beautiful contemporary romance book that is perfect for the summer, winter, spring and fall. You will quickly fall in love with Lana, Sawyer Beau and Ashton all over again. If you love a good romance book, but a tingling of emotion and FLODDING of steam pick this one up. You WILL not be disappointed!

Abbi’s ability to get my heart racing then shatter it into a million pieces is truly unique. You feel for Sawyer’s pain (which I will be honest, I didn’t care about in the first book!) and you also want to FEEL Sawyer! Oh eheeh this book totally made me need my Blanch!

Favorite Quotes

Ashton laughed and threw another pair of shorts on her bed to pack. “Bears can’t unzip tents Lana.” “Well chainsaw psychos who wander the woods looking for young girls all alone to chop up into pieces can,” I replied. “There are no chainsaw psychos! I can’t believe you’ve never been camping. It’s safe, Lana. I promise.” “Easy for you to say. You’ll be snuggled up safely in the arms of Beau Vincent. I'm more than positive he could take on a black bear,” I muttered. ~ARC p. 129

Jewel giggled and leaned back in her chair, “Whatever, you're the only person on earth who can read through my lies. I prefer to think of it as acting. I so think I need to move to Hollywood. I'd be brilliant on the big screen. Or maybe just a CW show…oooooooh. I could be on Vampire Diaries and lure Damon away from his infatuation from Elena. Then I could do one of those naked scenes he likes to do so well.” ~ARC p. 215
