I think I'm getting addicted reading Abbi Glines's contemporaries (view spoiler). This is my fourth book of her and I am really loving the author more and more. Lovely characters, swoony moments, steamy scenes, heartwarming story - Because of Low has it all and just like in The Vincent Boys, I was spent the entire time giddy and swooning or drooling.

Anyway, this is a spin off of Glines's first novel Breathe and this time Marcus is the center character here. Alright, where will I start? Marcus? Yeah, Marcus. This guy is abso-freaking-lutely awesome, you know, good-looking, funny, charming, caring, sweet - alright, stop Eunice! - I mean he's really a good guy and I really adored his character. I loved how much he cared for his family and Low. He does and say the sweetest and yummiest things. I really loved that part when Low found him asleep at the couch with her little niece in his arms. I can so picture it in my head and it was just really cute! Although he did some quite stupid and irritating things still it was just so easy to forgive him. Low on the other hand is the kindest and most understanding and forgiving heroine I'd ever met. I really admired and loved her character. I admired her open mindedness and how she always tried to understand Marcus. She's sweet and caring and loved her niece so much. It was so easy to love her.

I loved how their relationship developed and how they treated each other which I say was really really sweet and swoony and hot! It hadn't been easy since they were both struggling with family problems which caused them to be not totally open with each other, especially about their family issues. There was this unexpected twist around the last part that kinda frustrated me especially how they first reacted (view spoiler) Nonetheless, I was glad how later on they were able to handle the situation and talk things out and learned to accept things.

It was a sweet and lovely story! I loved the ending and yes, Cage too! I would love to read a story of him too! Haha! I highly recommend this. If you've enjoyed Glines previous works you'll definitely love this one too!

Jasprit Another great review Eunice, I will pick up a book by Glines eventually I have the Vincent boys in my pile to read soon. (view spoiler) I'm sure once I start one book by Glines I won't be able to stop! :D

Eunice Thank you, Jasprit! Hope you can start it really soon. I do doubt you'd be able to stop once you started. Haha! Same here, my tbr keeps on changing too. Lots of great books are coming and I really try to squeeze them in on my pile. And I agree, so many great books so little time! :DD

Laura Haha…I am still swooning & drooling over this one! Wonderful review, Eunice! & Cage! I don’t know how Glines or the boy did it—but yes, he even found a spot in my heart! Haha…Can’t wait for more! There are SO many possibilities for another story—the members of the band, Seth the waiter, Cage—endless possibilities for swooning! :)

♥Rachel♥ Lovely review Eunice! Oh Marcus! It was sooo cute how he treated Larissa. I love how he got her (view spoiler). Beyond cute.

Abbi Glines said she's writing a story for Cage which should be out this summer after The Vincent Brothers. So yay! :)

Eunice Thanks Laura and Rachel! Ohmigod! A story for Cage!? Yay! That just made my day! I wanna see that man fall inlove! So excited! (Sorry for the over use of !):DD

♥Rachel♥ That's okay, Eunice. Laura and I have formed a support-group for ! over-usage. We tend to use them a lot when we're excited. Which is every time we read about some hot man/boy!! (See, there I go) Abbi Glines books fuel our weakness in that area. You are welcome to join! :)

Eunice Haha! Oh yeah. I absolutely agree, Abbi Glines fuels our weakness on that. Sometimes I even have to read my whole comment before posting it, checking if I'm over using !. But I guess it's okay if it's with you guys. :DD

Laura Oh! Please—“!” away!!!! I am so bad! Haha…one more for the support group Rachel! Hehe….Glines and Christian Grey are not helping my over usage! :D
I can’t wait for more of Cage too! It will be interesting. But first more of Beau please! Now that boy causes the !!!!!s ;)

Eunice LOL. I can totally understand Laura. Wait until you meet Daemon too. Haha! Anyway, I keep hearing about this Christian Grey and the Fifty Shades series. Is it good? ^^

Laura OH! It’s good! Very HOT and the word we all seem to be using is “spicy!” haha…
Book 2 seems to be more tender than dark though. Well….so far any way. I am in love! :)
I truly can't wait to meet Daemon!
