"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!

Happy Reading!


  1. It's nice to see a contemp self-pub series that gets picked up by publishers. It seems like they're all paranormal. I need to go back and read The Vincent Boys.

  2. I really liked this book too, and I loved that Lana wasn't afraid to stand up for herself. I loved that she refused to be second choice! She was very vulnerable yet strong. I was all emotional reading this too. Fab review Savy!

  3. I recently read the S and S versions of these. Vincent Brothers is …. steamy!! And I'm glad poor Sawyer got a girl in the end.

  4. I have the first book and have been waiting to get time to read it. Now, I can't wait to read it so I can also get to this one. I also love how you hated for a character to get in the way so much and yet gave it such high marks. Yep, gotta read.

  5. I liked the first one but I didn't love it and decided I wouldn't continue the series. I do have to say that I'm a bit more curious now though and maybe I'll have to give this one a try.

  6. Oooh 5 bites? I think I might need to reconsider my decision to skip this series. Glad you enjoyed this so much, and that you fell so hard for the characters. That's a really good sign. Awesome review!
