it was amazing
bookshelves: contemporary-romance, kindle, loved-it

With Abbi Glines I know I am going to read her books so I try to avoid teasers and don't even bother reading the summary. For me it is like peaking at the Christmas presents when I would rather leave the surprise until Christmas morning. I have to say this works well for me because letting this story unfold was a real treat.

Abbi certainly knows how to write a bad boy and Cage is such a great character. He was messed up and making bad choices but knowing from Because of Low that he had hidden depth, and dare I say it, sweetness made me eager to find out more about him. Wow! All that hotness on the page had my kindle smoking.
Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for setting this during the summer where Cage had so many excuses to take his shirt off (view spoiler).
Where some characters take a while to warm up to, Eva is a character that I liked instantly. She had me tearing up then cracking up within the first few pages. I was also pleasantly surprised that I was learning more about Eva right throughout the book. Abbi seems to have a way of letting the characters evolve as you would get to know someone in real life - not all at once but a slow reveal.

This was a very steamy novel and not one for young readers, but as an adult I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I loved Because of Low and this was just as good. I hope you girls like it too. I don't want to build up the hype but I just really enjoyed Cage - whoops, I meant While It Lasts ;)

♥Rachel♥ Excellent review Karen! I was cracking up at this: "Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for setting this during the summer where Cage had so many excuses to take his shirt off (view spoiler)"
