Cover:Summary:Preacher's daughter Ashton Gray is gorgeous, good and kind, and she's dating Sawyer Vincent - handsome school quarterback and all-round gentleman. Sawyer's perfect, and Ashton knows it. But when Sawyer leaves town for the summer, Ashton gets to spending time with his cousin Beau. Unlike Sawyer, Beau is a bona fide bad-boy - drinking, sleeping around and generally going the way of his white-trash parents. Ashton knows it's wrong, but something about Beau has her all hot and bothered. He's bringing out the bad girl in this sweet Southern Belle. Sultry, romantic, hotter than the Alabama sun - what will the Vincent Boys do for you?
LOVE! I might be a bit biased on this but the Aussie cover is definitely my favourite! The two boys, the girl are all so AMAZING! They look just like how I imagined Ashton, Sawyer and Beau!
Two Vincent Boys...which one will you choose?
I originally read The Vincent Boys when it was self-published. It was quite recent though so by the time I finished reading, I found out that the book was picked up by a publisher. I was beyond happy! Now that I got an actual hard-copy of the book, I decided it was a time for re-read and guess what? The Vincent Boys is even better the second time!
This book made me fell in love with the contemporary genre all over again. Since summer is here in Australia, this book is definitely a perfect summer read. The story is written from dual POVs, Beau and Ashton. Beau and Ashton were childhood friends but became distant when Ashton dates Sawyer. So when Sawyer leaves town, Ashton rekindles her friendship with Beau but turns out, it's more than just friendship...
Oh dear, where do I start? I simply loved it. The story is simple, not too much drama and that's probably why it's so easy to connect with the story. I love Abbi's writing. She captures the feeling of 'hot summer' so well and the romance too of course! The romance was sweet and hot!
While I'm itching to get to the Vincent Boys, might as well start with Ashton first! I really liked Ashton and understood what she felt throughout the book. While Ashton is dating Sawyer, she has to hold back her 'bad girl' side. She wants to be good for Sawyer and that is tiring. But Beau is an entire different story. He's the 'bad boy' but he's slowly slipping his way into Ashton's heart. Even though technically, Ashton is cheating on Sawyer by spending her time with Beau, I can't help but root for her and Beau. Even though Beau's famous for his 'badness', he truly cares for Ashton. We can clearly see this from the chapters written from his POV. Sawyer might be the 'good guy' but he strikes a bit dull to me. Lana, the main character in the sequel, The Vincent Brothers make an appearance here and I like how she supports Ashton and Beau!
Looking for a summer read? Here's one for you! From the amazing story, Abbi's great writing and the sizzling characters, I simply loved this book and I am so happy the book was picked up by the publishers! The Vincent Boys is a hot and romantic book fans of contemporary will love! The only problem is, which Vincent Boy will you choose?
