Vincent Brothers & Vincent Boys Reviews...

Get seduced by a sizzling account of attraction and betrayal in this previously self-published phenomenon.

There was something wicked about Beau that drew me to him. What was wrong with me? Why did I want to sin so badly?

Ashton is getting tired of being good, of impressing her parents and playing ideal girlfriend to Sawyer Vincent. Sawyer is perfect, a regular Prince Charming, but when he leaves town for the summer, it's his cousin Beau who catches Ashton's eye. Beau is the sexiest guy she's ever seen, and even though he's dangerous, Ashton is drawn to him.

Beau loves his cousin like a brother, so the last thing he wants to do is make a move on Sawyer's girl. Ashton is off-limits, absolutely. That's why he does his best to keep his distance, even though he's been in love with her forever. When Ashton wants to rekindle their childhood friendship in Sawyer's absence, Beau knows he should say no.

Ashton and Beau don't want to hurt Sawyer. But the more they try to stay away from each other, the more intense their urges become. It's getting way too hard to resist...

 Hot romance is the cure for heartbreak in this sequel to The Vincent Boys.

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 cousins 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. . . .


Abbi Glines writes AMAZING books but I knew that going into these two books.  I have had these books sitting on my shelf for almost two years now so I put them on my summer reading list for this year.  They were both read in a single day while I didn't have internet access they were that good.  Now bare with me because I have finished around 8 books that I am just now writing reviews for and am struggling to keep all the names correct.

In the Vincent Boys (Book 1) Sawyer and Ashton are together at the start of this book.  However, Sawyer is out of town for the summer with his family and Ashton is stuck in town with the other Vincent Boy, Beau.  Beau and Ashton start hanging out like they used to and Ashton realizes that she hasn't been herself for a long time.  She has been suppressing the part of her youth that she truly misses and after spending time with Beau she starts to become herself again.  In the end of the book Sawyer and Beau get some news that blows their lives apart.

I love the message this book sends to young readers.  It is a book about being yourself.  You have to be true to who you are or you will never be happy.  Ashton hadn't been happy for a long time but in one summer that all changes and things look up for her.  But it is also about family and knowing the truth.  It is about being happy and making the correct choices in life.  This book was all about the lessons we all have to learn in life as a young person.

In the Vincent Brothers (Book 2) follows Lana, Ashton's cousin, who comes to stay so she can win the love of Sawyer.  Sawyer however, is still fighting how he feels for Ashton and uses Lana to try and get Ashton back.  In the end Sawyer falls for Lana hard and everybody is happy.

This book is also a book with a message that you should follow your own heart.  You have to figure out what you want in life and don't let anything stand in your way as you fight to get it!

I love Abbi Glines and these two books made me fall even harder.  I can't wait to get into the Sea Breeze series and finish the Rosemary Beach series as well.  I highly recommend these books to young adults and adults.

Both books get an amazing 5 star review from me!
