Being the good girl isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Ashton Gray has grown weary of playing the part to please her parents, and to be worthy of the town’s prince charming, Sawyer Vincent. Maybe That’s why she’s found herself spending time with Sawyer’s cousin, Beau, while he’s away for the summer camping with his family. Beau is nothing like her perfect boyfriend. He’s the sexiest guy she’s ever seen, dangerous in ways she’s only day dreamed about, and the one guy she should stay away from.
Beau never envied Sawyer his loving parents, his big nice home, or his position as quarterback. He loves him like a brother. Which is why he's tried everything in his power to keep his distance from Sawyer’s girlfriend. Even if he has loved her since the age of five, Ashton is Sawyer’s girl, so therefore she’s off limits. But when Sawyer leaves for the summer, Ashton, the one girl Beau would move Heaven and Earth for, decides she wants to get into trouble. Stabbing the one person who’s always accepted him and stood by him in the back, is the cost of finally holding Ashton Gray in his arms. Is she worth losing his cousin over?.... Hell Yeah.
My Thoughts: This is absolutely one of my most favorite books. I am a huge fan of Abbi Glines and I love all her books, and The Vincent Boys is one of those books that just consumes you. I love the story, the characters, everything about it. That being said I am going to have to go all fan-girl here and tell you that Beau Vincent is absolutely to die for. He is the epitome of hottness, complete sex on a stick, and totally redefines the term yummy. He is my ultimate book boyfriend, and it is a good thing that he is fictional, otherwise I would probably embarrass myself or possibly get arrested. That being said, the description of Beau Vincent alone should make you want to rush out and get this book.
The whole book is filled with heartfelt passion and emotion. It is packed with romantic chemistry from the first chapter until the end of the book. Though Beau is a "bad boy," he is the best kind - the kind you love to love. I love all the southern charm in the book, and if you’re from the south, you know all about pickup trucks, bench seats, and straddling the gearshift to sit next to your guy. The Vincent Boys, Beau and Sawyer, are cousins, and Ashton is the girl they both love. The three of them grew up together and were inseparable until Ashton and Sawyer started dating. A turn in events brings Ashton and Beau together, and she realizes that she has chosen the wrong Vincent boy. The fire and love between Ashton and Beau is undeniable, yet Ashton doesn't want to hurt Sawyer, and neither does Beau. Sawyer has been there for him his whole life, when no one else has. Now Beau is faced with choosing between family and love. Ash loves Sawyer, but she is in love with Beau. She can't bear the thought of tearing the two of them apart, and She is willing to sacrifice her desires to keep that from happening. They all learn that the things they thought they had known all of their lives regarding love, family, and each other are not what they seem, and they all have really hard choices to face in light of this.
Abbi does an outstanding job bringing everything together in this book. The drama, and the romance and the chemistry between the characters (and oh does Abbi Glines know how to deliver in this area), all leave you feeling like you have not only just read a great book, but like you have experienced it.
