"Getting a boy to fall head-over-heels in love with you isn’t easy. Especially when he’s been in love with your cousin for as long as you can remember.
Lana has lived her life in her cousin’s shadow. Ashton always made perfect grades, had tons of friends, and looks model-perfect. And she’s always had Sawyer Vincent—the only boy Lana’s ever wanted—wrapped around her finger. But now things are different. Lana has a chance to make Sawyer see her, and she’s taking it. If only he’d get over Ashton—because Lana is sick of second-best.
Sawyer’s heart is broken. He’s lost his best girl to his best friend. And then Lana comes to town. Ashton’s cousin has always been sweet and soft-spoken, but now she’s drop-dead gorgeous as well. Sawyer doesn’t know if Lana can heal his broken heart, but spending time with her might at least make Ashton jealous.
What starts as a carefree fling becomes a lusty game of seduction. Sawyer and Lana may have different motives, but their scintillating hookups are the same kind of steamy. . . ."
After reading the first book, The Vincent Boys, I wasn't sure how to approach this one. I guess that is why it took me such a long time to read it.
You see, I fell in love with all the characters. Swayer I just felt so bad for. He got his heart broken and I just couldn't see how he can get over another girl and fall for another one. Reading the plot of the book, I fell right back in. Lana is completely different from Ashton. I like that Lana is trust-able and very vulnerable. It makes her time with Sawyer different.
The love interest is what hurts me and make me want more the most. First off, I HATE that Ashton got in the way. Yes, I said it. I think this character shouldn't have been involved at all. I think that is what made Sawyer's transition so hard. The only part that really redeemed the book for me is when Lana goes away. Yes, I'm a sadist and watching Sawyer suffer I felt it was fitting. Lana has been through so much. I like who she grew up in the book putting her foot down. She made tough descions but in the end, it made her stronger.
Overall, yes I like it. The Vincent Brothers had an amazing ending that left me smiling BIG! The emotional roller coaster however left my heart going CRAZY! Still, I adore Abbi Glines and loved her book.
I give it 5 BITES!
