Maybe driving home after a few (or more) shots of tequila had been a bad idea, but hell, he did it all the time. The cops had to have been freaking bored to have pulled him over. He wasn’t even swerving! That’s Cage York’s story and he’s sticking to it.

Unfortunately, his baseball coach isn’t buying it. Cage has a free ride to the local junior college for baseball -- or he

Midnights_Darling -The Emo Kittie I agree. I don't know why they didn't make it a TV series. Plus who they cast as Krit is terrible. But I love the casting of Cage.

Dear Abbi Glines,

I've been a reader of yours for sometime now. Even before Fifty Shades of Grey introduced my girly bits to a full blown bookgasm; I was a Glines reader. The sharp edge to your YA-writing style tends to posses a reader!

However, me and the actual stories have had quite the love/hate relationship. Imagine a hot guy that gets you all worked up, makes you feel it in all the right places, but every single time he finishes without ever giving you the big "O". Of course you still keep

I am going to opt out of writing a traditional review of this book. Here's my end note up front, so you can read it and move on while I stay behind and rant to myself :

Who should read this book? Anyone who loves protective, slightly possessive alpha males who are sexy as hell and love to think, talk and act dirty. If you like lots of great sexual tension, being inside of a man's head as he thinks naughty thoughts, and yum

3 1/2 to 4 stars

A fun, sweet, and emotional book. It's also sexy, frustrating, humorous, brazen, and full of stereotypical college age drama. I very much enjoyed reading this story.

While It Lasts is a companion novel in the Sea Breeze series. When I first heard that Abbi Glines was writing a book about Cage, I was a little skeptical. Cage is a character we first met in Because of Low, and to be honest, I was not part of his fan club. In fact this is my status update at 31% in Because of Low: “Someone needs to tell Cage this is no way to woo a woman. Cage=Moron!” He was a total man-whore who had a different girl/girls, every time he came into the picture (yes, girls as in p

"She had the power to break me. No one had ever been given that power, ever. Eva could do it. If I let her in any further she could completely destroy me."

When Eva and Cage first meet there is an immediate attraction...but Eva, a good girl trying to cope with a recent tragedy, wants nothing to do with a (gorgeous) bad-boy like Cage who was sent there to work for her father as punishment for his DUI. Besides, even if she was interested, her father has forbidden her to even go near Cage...

**4.5 Cage stars**

Apparently, I'm the last romance reader to read this steamy Abbi Glines book. :) I had read book 2, Because of Low, in 2012 but never made it around to reading the others in this series. While browsing the local online library I saw this one was available as an audio download. Both a male and female read Cage and Eva's parts. I know I've said it before but audios can be great because they allow you freedom to do other things while listening-> you can cook dinner, go on a walk,

I think I just struck gold with my latest read by Abbi Glines. I have always enjoyed her books, but 'While it lasts' was in a different league altogether.

The book starts with a heart clenching prologue which sets the scene nicely for the addictive read.

I knew this book was going to be special and steal my heart when I had tears reading the first couple of pages.. Yes, this book had me at the prologue!

I’ve been in a bit of a book funk and when I heard this was coming out I couldn’t wait to get started and it definitely didn't disappoint.

Cage York was introduced in the last book of this series, Because of Low, where he showed himself to be an epic manwhore with a huge heart. After landing himself in trouble on a DUI, his baseball coach sends him off to work on a farm for the summer as punishment and to sort himself out, otherwise he risks losing his baseball scholarship.

Eva takes one look at Cage and knows that he is trouble. It’s her father’s farm where Cage is sent to work, and she is highly unimpressed by him, writing

Hooooooly moley, Abbi Glines has nearly left me speechless!!! I say nearly because I am actually going to write this review...despite the fact that sentences aren't forming as clearly in my head as they should be right now, thanks to a certain god-like steamy fantasy come true named Cage that I was just treated to!!

Absolutely loved it. Can't even review it yet but it was just ridiculous. I thought I was obsessed with the Vincent Brothers, but Cage just blew them outta the damn water!

UPDATE 8/4/12 :: ok, now that I've had a few days outside While It Lasts and have read a few other books, I feel like it's still safe to say that I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS BOOK. LIKE CAN'T HANDLE HOW YUMMY CAGE IS. I'll probably go back and read this many times - just for his deli

This book is just as good the second time around and Cage is still sexy as hell.

I never thought I would really like Cage, but after reading White it Lasts I fell in love with him. Abbi really knocked it out of the park with this one and even turned up the heat. I loved it so much! There isn't a book out there of Abbi's that I haven't loved and this one is right up there with the rest.
Best of Sea Breeze so far!

“I gotta admit your gallantry at attempting to save me from the big bad mean cows was noble in a moronic sort of way” <--- Therein lies the solitary golden moment for me. It's when I thought I was going to love WHILE IT LASTS. It's with a line like that I turned all hopeful, expectant even. I really thought this would have just the right mix of funny, dramatic, and sexy. (That maybe, just maybe, my moment of loving Vincent Brothers wasn’t a one time only.)

I ended up enjoying this one more than I thought I might. I'm not going to write much until I let this one process a little more. One thing screamed out at me as I was reading this, though. Eva reminded me ALOT of Ashton from the Vincent Boys/Bros and Cage seemed like almost a knockoff of Beau, sometimes to the point of distraction for me. Ashton and Eva are both innocents who experienced long term relationships with stable, good boys without managing to give away their V cards. Both have famili ...more

If you want me to compare this book to all the other Sea Breeze books, i am so begging you not to let me do that. Please?

The book was ok. Maybe i was just expecting a lot from it. Don't get me wrong I was entertained, i got teary-eyed in some parts, especially the prologue. But... I somehow find it lacking. Or something...

Eva's pain has got to really hurt so much. I mean she just lost the person she loved for 18 years. There were promises that she hoped to have someday. Yet all those promises we

Talking about a good girl going bad. And bad she went. Good for her :).
This one was one of those (few) books that I just couldn't put it down.
I didn't knew what I was getting my self in to. When I read the plot I thought it's going to be a story about summer love, a lot of flirting, maybe some making out here and there and a lot of boy chasing after a girl. But it was so much more than that.

It's no surprise that I loved this book. I'm a huge Abbi Glines fan, but that aside, I was really excited about getting inside Cage's head. Mission accomplished! I absolutely knew that Cage was going to be special. I remember sending Abbi a note while I read Because of Low asking (begging) if there would be a story about Cage. I think Cage crept into my heart at that point and held on tight. I was dying to see what kind of girl could get into his heart (besides me). Immediately, I knew Eva had w ...more

The cover drew me to this book. After reading the book’s description, I was hooked. This is also my first book by this author. I didn’t regret it. Cage and Eva’s story begins with a heart-wrenching Prologue and ends with a heart-warming Epilogue. In between, there’s a sweet and spicy story that melts your heart. I would classify this story in the Mature Young Adult category.

This book brings out the country girl in me! And I didn’t even know I had one y'all! Lol!

Cage York is bad (and I like!). He is every woman’s wet dream. After getting into some trouble, his baseball coach sends him to do some hard labor at a farm. Ladies, this means he was shirtless and sweaty for most of this book.Hehehe.

Eva’s heart has been broken for a year and half after losing the love of her life. Nothing helps. She can’t move forward……until Cage. She cannot resist (no woman could!).
