Sawyer is perfect, a regular Prince Charming, but when he leaves town for the summer, it’s his cousin Beau who catches Ashton’s eye. 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

I could sympathize with the main characters really well and loved this book a thousand times better than the second. (less)

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

I've buddyread this book with my lovely sistah Beatrice. (Click her name to read her beautiful review of this book) :)

The Vincent Boys is a sweet and adorable NA story. It's light, quick, and easy to read. One of the reasons why I opted to read this book is because my love for Abbi Glines is immense. I fell in love with her Rosemary Beach series, and although this book wasn't exactly as good as Rosemary Beach, it still surprised me.

I love Ashton and Beau's story. At first I was so skeptical beca

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

Well, I didn't expect this... I thought it would be some sweet YA story, but it was quite hot, damn!, in those few sex scenes, Beau was deliciously dirty.

Anyway, we have Ashton, who apparaently chose to date wrong Vincent boy few years prior. Now, her boyfriend (the good and proper one) Sawyer Vincent is out of town for the summer and she spends it with Beau Vincent - his cousin, the town bad boy. The three of them used to be best friends but ever since Ash and Sawyer started

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

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?

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

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.

Too much angst and not enough romance. But I 100% only read this because i wanted something light, corny, and obnoxious, and this definitely delivered that even if the relationship was a bit dry and upsetting because it was based on cheating

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
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.

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.

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

Sometimes I hate it when I think of a book I've read before because the more I think of it then the more I want to reread it and I really don't have that sort of time (which I fucking hate!) but the second I thought of THE VINCENT BOYS by Abbi Glines yesterday at work then it was fucking set in stone; I WAS going to reread that fucker!

Oh Beau *sigh* I didn't think I could love you anymore than I did the first time round but you have literally just warmed my heart and set my vagina on

RATING: 3.5-4 "Lucifer was Beautiful" Hearts!! :D

The Vincent Boys is a cute and charming YA read, combining the best of drama, angst and romance as is customary with teenagers at the tender age of eighteen, and giving us a good story and likeable characters in its entirety.

Ashton is a heroine who is—to a certain extent—easy to understand and relate with despite her immoral and at times angering actions. She’s young and stuck between the love of two boys, and her dilemma to be with the one she l

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 great job portr

Buddy read this with the lovely sis Pearl (Click the link to check out her fab review).

As always, Abbi Glines' novels are quick and easy to read. It never fails to get out of my reading slump. The story might be cliche but it's a guilty pleasure and I don't really mind love triangles.

Let's talk about the heroine: Ashton Gray. People recognized her as a preacher's daughter and as much as possible, she stays good in the eyes of many. She have been an obedient child to her parents and a perfect

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.

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

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.

Something is definitely wrong with this story, but ooooh I loved Beau way too much to care about anything else.

The Vincent Boys are two cousins and they both love the same girl they’ve been friends with since they were 5-6 years old. Sawyer - the good boy, the town’s Prince, the perfect one - claimed Ashton as his three years ago. Beau - the badass, the true alpha, the town’s pariah distanced himself and let them be.

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.

Jeez the over abundance of angst/drama in this has left me exhausted.

And seriously my teenage life was like watching paint dry compared to this lot.

Nothing is ever easy for Abbi Glines characters is it?! I've read a few of her books and they're all the same formula, clearly that works for some but it's just too over the top for me to really enjoy.

The Vincent Boys was sweet, addicting, hot, a little dirty and so much fun! You quickly emerge into their lives and everything becomes so clear, so fast. Ashton, aka Ash, has been friends with the Vincent Boys since she was a kid. And the Vincent Boys, Sawyer and Beau, are not only bffs, but cousins too. The three of them did everything together, although Ash and Beau were the trouble makers. The things they did as kids, oh my goodness lol, thank goodness they had Sawyer who was always there to ...more

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 act
