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.... - via GoodReads
I have read some books by Abbi in the past and really enjoyed them so I couldn’t wait to go back to her book that started it all. I think this is the first book Abbi wrote and I have had a copy of it sitting on my Nook forever. So long that I have the old self published version instead of the newer redone version. Which I will add right now that the older version I have has some spelling errors and little times where the sentences do not flow. I’m sure this was fixed in the reprint of the series though.
As soon as I started reading this I was falling for the entire plot line already. I loved the place that Ash was in and the choices she was going to have to make. I connected with her because in my past I was once dating a guy who was a great guy but he just didn’t let me be completely me. I felt like I had to tone down who I was in some ways and accept a little less from my relationship with him. I feel like I was dating Sawyer when I was Ash’s age. So I immediately loved Ash and I still loved her character throughout the entire book. I feel like I had lived the situations she was going through and I completely knew her mixed feelings to be true to real life.
Even if you can’t connect with Ash in this book I’m sure you will drool over Beau! He is an amazing guy and I want one of him for myself. He is a little tough and believed to be the bad boy in town but the town just doesn’t understand him and what he has gone through. I found it amazing to watch as he fell for Ash and how the two of them could connect in a way they just couldn’t with Sawyer. I will tell you this book deals with cheating but I believe that if you understand Ash’s point of view and where both her and Beau come from then you will understand why it happened the way it did. I’m not saying cheating is the right thing to do but sometimes things like this happen in real life and I’m glad that Abbi was able to showcase a true to real life feeling and she pulled it off!
Now I must read Sawyer’s book, although I think I won’t love him as much as Beau.
