REVIEW: The Vincent Brothers by Abbi Glines

Title: The Vincent Brothers (vincent boys #2)
Author: Abbi Glines
Date Published: June 2012

He may have given her up without a fight, but Sawyer Vincent is far from over losing the girl he’s loved all of his life. Instead of giving up his best friend and the girl he thought he’d spend forever with, he gave Ashton and his brother Beau his blessing. However, adjusting to seeing Ashton wrapped up in Beau’s arms isn’t easy. Complicating everything even more, Ashton’s cousin Lana is in town for the summer. Sweet, kind, soft-spoken Lana, who gets under his skin. Just being near her makes him forget all about Ashton and his broken heart. Lana is everything he wanted Ashton to be except she isn’t Ashton. She lacks the backbone to stand up for herself and confidence that Ashton wears like a crown. 

Lana McDaniel has lived her life in her cousin's shadow. While Lana struggled with her grades no matter how hard she tried, her mother praised Ashton's intelligence. She hadn’t been blessed with Ashton’s blond hair and flawless skin, but that didn't keep her mother from lamenting her naturally red hair and freckles. But none of that would have mattered if Ashton hadn’t always had Sawyer Vincent wrapped around her finger -- the only boy Lana wanted. Once Ashton let Sawyer go, Lana had been so sure that he’d move on. Determined to make Sawyer finally see her, she'd talked her mother into letting her spend the summer with Ashton. But Sawyer is still in love with Ashton, and Lana isn’t going to be anyone's rebound girl. No matter how yummy Sawyer Vincent’s kisses taste.

My Rating:

My Review:
The thing about finishing the Vincent Boys was that while I was happy with how the story ended, I really wanted Sawyer to find his HEA too! In the first book you really feel for Ashton because both guys are just so amazing and while she definitely chose the one that was best for her, leaving Sawyer heartbroken was just devastating. 

Glines picks up right where The Vincent Boys left off. Sawyer is pining away for Ashton and trying to get through every instance he is faced with being around them and watching their obvious love for one another. 

Lana has been in love with Sawyer for what seems like forever, only to sit on the sidelines and watch as her cousin not only got the guy, but broke his heart. She is now prepared to go after her man. Sawyer begins to show definite interest in her, but she is left trying to figure out whether she is just a means to an end for him, or even if he is using her. 

I loved the connection between Lana and Sawyer in this book. I loved how different the relationship was from his and Ashton's. Being a long for the ride as he started to realize for himself that this wasn't just way to get over Ashton was great.

I am a huge fan of Abbi Glines. Can not wait to see what stories she comes up with next!
