The Vincent Boys by Abbi Glines


The Vincent Boys

Synopsis:

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....

Review:

I really enjoyed The Vincent Boys. Beau is one of my favorite boys from an Abbi Glines books. Even though Ashton annoyed me at times I still enjoyed this book.

The story opens with Ashton helping Beau and his girlfriend get home one night when she finds them drunk on the side of the road. Ashton hasn't spoken to Beau in a long time, even though they used to be best friends. She is now dating Sawyer, Beaus' cousin, who was also best friends with them growing up. She used to be fun and didn't try and be perfect all the time and she had a strong connection with Beau. When Sawyer asked her out I am not sure why she decided to go out with him. She obviously like Beau, but didn't think he liked her. Instead she tried to be this perfect person so she would be worthy of Sawyer. It was really annoying how she thought she has to be this different, perfect person. Sawyer also didn't help since he let her change and try and be perfect. It left Ashton feeling inadequate since Sawyer was never passionate with her or anything, he just wanted that perfect, good girlfriend.

With Sawyer gone for the summer Ashton and Beau start to hang out more, to become friends again. It quickly escalates and I just felt bad for Beau. Ashton loves Sawyer, but is not in love with him. She loves Beau, but instead of breaking up with Sawyer she decides to stay with him. Why? I am not 100% sure. Yes she knows she can't be with Beau as then they would hate each other. Sure I can accept that. Why does that mean she has to stay with Sawyer when she knows she doesn't love him like he loves her. He wants to marry her one day, and she just doesn't want that with him. I hate when girls do this. It is not very nice and horrible to the person they stay with. No one wants someone to be with them because of duty or fear of hurting them or whatever. I just kept waiting for Ashton to grow up and face the facts. If she couldn't be with Beau then she should at least not be with Sawyer either. He deserved better than her.

Of course things work out in the end, though there are still some hurt feelings. They get resolved in the next book, but it is not necessary to read the next book as well. No cliffhanger or anything. So even though this is a book about cheating, the girl is so stupid at times, and could be really annoying, I liked Beau so much that it really made the book enjoyable for me.

Rating: 4/5
