The Vincent Boys by Abbi Glines
From Barnes & Noble
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.
Beau, Ashton and Sawyer have been friends almost their entire lives. Beau and Ashton would do something crazy and Sawyer would always be there to bail them out. Beau has always loved Ashton and he believes that she is the only thing that is truly his but all of that changes when Sawyer claims Ashton as his own.
This book was amazing. For something that I only paid 2.99 for I wasn't expecting it to be as good as it was. There was a real depth to the story and you could really feel the character's struggles. Beau wants Ashton more than anything but his cousin is the only one who's ever really loved him unconditionally and believed in him. How can he destroy that? I could really feel the back and forth that Beau and Ash went through when they had to decide how far they were willing to go to be with each other. We don't really see a lot of Sawyer in this book, which was fine by me because he was not my favorite character. I've read the second in the series from his point of view and I loved his character but it is hard to win when you are compared to Beau. He starts off as an acoholic smart ass and eventually morphs into a total sweetheart that would do anything for Ash. Especially kick some butt! Ash's transformation in this book was also very sweet. She realizes how far she's come from who she really is and she finally figures out what she needs to do to get back to the old Ash. There are a lot of suprises in this book that I definitely did not see coming which made the ending even more bittersweet. All in all I hereby give this book 4 and a half stars. Go buy it, check it out from your library, steal it if you must because this book will definitely leave you searching for the sequel.
