An unexpected affair leads to mind-blowing harmony in this Sea Breeze novel from New York Times bestselling author Abbi Glines.

Jason is sick of living in his rock star brother’s shadow. So when he ships off to Sea Breeze, Alabama, he’s looking for a much deserved escape and a chance to blow off some envious steam. Falling for the local bad girl was definitely not the plan

Here is a TEASER for Jason's Book. :)

“Go! Go! Go!” She demanded. She didn’t even look my way. Her eyes were focused on something outside. I turned my attention to the side of the road where she was intensely watching. There was nothing… then a guy came bursting out of the woods with an angry snarl on his face and I understood. No wonder she was terrified. The guy was huge and looked ready to murder someone.

2.75 Same Old Stars

Do I think this story was worth $8.89?

[image error]

This was the SAME OLD story. We were promised “a bad girl” and I just don’t think Abbi delivered. Jesse was a flirt and did pull a Carrie Underwood but she wasn’t a bad girl to me. Also she came across a bit Forrest Gump when she talked about or with her Momma.

This is the story of poor girl falls for rich guy and you get the gist. Sex scenes were hot but the story was short and sadly nothing spectacular.

Nothing different… All too cliché … Always been that same old story…

It's always been about two characters who felt like they didn't deserve each other, that all's just temporary before going back to their different worlds, but he needed to get her out of his system while at the same time trying to introduce her to his world, but then she felt like she didn't belong there. Then came along all the fights, insecurities, miscommunications, jealousies and revenge... the break up, seeking other people

"I knew that, without a doubt, I had just been ruined.”

Before any of you attack me, Abbi Glines books are purely a guilty pleasure read for me. I may not rate them very high, but I do enjoy reading them. And I continue to read them because they are a nice little escape from reality and Ms. Glines writes some amazing angst. She just recycles her plots and uses too much instalove. I'm sorry, but I can't rate anything higher than that. It's a guilty

I gotta be honest, when I first started reading about Jason and Jess and her crazy "Momma", I was NOT sure I was gonna like this story at all... but GODDAMN can Abbi Glines write, because she sure as heck turned it ALL AROUND for me!!!


What a BRILIIANT addition to the Sea Breeze series; LOVED IT
3.5 stars

Not the best of Abbi Glines but still enjoyed it. As always, I flew through her book. Her writing flows so smoothly and the stories all suck you in no matter what it is.

Jess was refreshing. I didn't expect to like her after she was constantly trying to wreak havoc in other peoples relationships in previous books. But she surprised me. There really is more than meets the eye with her.
I liked Jason in the previous books and still like him a lot after this book. But I just didn't fall in

OK I'll start off by saying, I was really anticipating this book because I loved Ms. Abbi's past books. For me, not everyone, it just didn't do it for me.

If you've read the past books in this series, you should know that Jess is Rock's trouble maker of a cousin. In this book we see a bit more inside of her trouble-some ways.

Jason is Jax's brother, we met in in the first book and in Preston and Amanda's book. He basically lives in the shadow of his brother.

Ok I will admit I wasn’t a Jason fan for a while, I know I know how could I not be. But this book opened my eyes. And I so very glad he got a book because I saw him in a different light.
I think what made me like him was that he doesn’t resent his brother for his fame just the opposite really.

And I loved Jess this woman has been through a lot. She knows her place and her part to play in all of it, but when the heart gets involved she has to do what she thinks is right for all invo

I wasn't really interested in these two, but being a series whore, I had to give it a try. The first 2/3 of this was ok, about a 3 star rating, but that last 3rd? LOVED!! It was so good. I wish that plot would've started around the half way mark, but in the end it turned out really good. And now since we got to see more of Krit, I can't wait for his story! ...more

Big surprise...Abbi Glines does it again!!!

Loved the beginning, the middle got a little boring/annoying and I thought this was going to be one of my least favorite Abbi Glines book and then bam...the end comes...and it was freaking amazing! Think of the closing scene to An Officer and a Gentleman! The 'Love Lifts Us Where We Belong' chorus was blaring in my head! I loved it!!! So that totally made up for some of the parts that dragged/annoyed me in the middle.

This is the 6th book in this series I've been reading and I like most of the characters in all the books. This book was needed for a challenge and I new I could get it read in one sitting so I picked it up for that purpose. I like this series but I'm still a little tired of romance books. I did like this one better then the last book I read. At least this one didn't annoy me until around chapter 20.

“I’ve always wanted a man to love me for me.”

Just when I thought that after five instalments in the Sea Breeze series I would be safe in knowing what to expect in this book, I realised that you never know what you’re going to get in an Abbi Glines novel. So very different from its prequels, this story is a gut-wrenching joy-ride beginning to end, with so many moments that will take your breath away with the intensity of emotions running through you. Jess is a bad girl that I adored,

“Cute, huh? Do I need to remind you of my sexiness?” -Jason Stone

So what happened here is a disaster. I’m not disappointed with it. I love the book. I like the story. But it’s not Sea Breeze. This is my least favorite of all Abbi Glines book that I have ever read.

“I don’t get possessive. I can’t get possessive. I don’t have time for that. You are making me feel that way, and it doesn’t fit into my world. I was trying to distance myself.” -Jason Stone

Abbi Glines you are hands down my favorite author!!! I can't get enough of your books, they never disappoint. Misbehaving was excellent and I wasn't ready for it to be over. I loved getting to know more about Jason then just that he is Jax's brother. Jess is definitely my favorite female lead out of all of Abbi's books. She was strong, independent but yet sweet and insecure. My heart went out to her throughout the book, I just wanted her to get her fairy tail. If you haven't checked out The Sea ...more

This is pure NA. Sweet, sexy, steamy and cute story with a possessive male character - don't want them if not - and a strong female character, vulnerable but with a backbone ! (yeah the first scene)

I hope someday Abbi Glines will write something entirely different and surprise everyone, but I will still love her NA novels <3 !

I'd love to have some news from Jax and Sadie. We see them a bit in each book of the series but I need more. How does she deal with being in the lights ? Are they going to

Before I start bashing this book in my review, I just want to say that Abbi Glines is a mastermind when it comes to emotional, gut-wrenching storylines. She knows exactly how to play with out hearts while making us feel all those wonderful, heartwarming feels, but every author can't have the perfect score in books and Misbehaving was apparently my least favorite work by Abbi.

You know when a book is so bad that it's actually hilarious. That's Misbehaving right there! At first I was frustrated w

Ok, I admit it. I wasn't that excited to read about Jason Stone. Not that I didn't like the peeks we got of him earlier in this series, I just wasn't sure what to think of him.

Well, I'm so glad I did read because it was so good. I loved both of the main characters. Jason was what a man should be. He was

Love it! Love it! Love it! Jason and Jess, definitely the cutest "Sea Breeze"-Couple until now. I liked the idea that this book based itself more on the feelings than the sexual part. They were such a good match. I just couldn`t stop reading, it was so addictive. Jess is such a sweet/caring personality underneath her walls, the idea that the "Bad Girl" has her own story is so great. I also have to compliment the covers. Piper did such a great job! I just love the german covers!

This book was a bit of a disappointment for me. I mean I know that I'm reading an Abbi Glines book so I don't have really high expectations, but it's still my least favorite from the Sea Breeze series.
This books follows Jess and Jason. Jason is Jax's brother. Jess doesn't have a wonderful life quite the opposite actually. And one day after beating her cheating ex boyfriends car she meets Jason. He helps her escape. If this seems a bit weird it was.
Jess wasn't exactly the typical female character

Wow Jayson is just wow! He's everything, he's the complete package, I still can't get enough of him. And I knew I just knew he was going to be one of my favourites. He and preston are at the top my list of the sea breeze boys! I have a feeling krit will be next inline next to cage! Jess tho she is my favourite of the woman. I just love everything about her! And I admire her strength. I want more though of Jason so much more! ...more
This is another one that I liked but not as much as the others. I liked Jason but Jess could be a pain at times. Thankfully everything worked out in the end.
