Book Review: The Vincent Brothers by Abbi Glines

The Vincent Brothers by Abbi Glines
(The Vincent Boys Series #2)
Release Date: June 5, 2012
Publisher: Abbi Glines; -- pages

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.

When I heard that there was going to be a sequel to The Vincent Boys, I was very excited. I fell in love with both of the Vincent boys, Beau and Sawyer, but I was happy to know that they would both get a happy ending because in the first one, they didn’t really. I knew I wanted this book right away, and I could not put it down.

The Vincent Brothers starts off right where The Vincent Boys left off. I was very happy to get Sawyers side of the story. A lot of stuff went down in the end of the last book and there was a lot left to question, which was answered in this book. I have to say, Sawyer acted a heck of a lot like Beau in this book. But damn, he sure was hot. I didn’t know Sawyer had all of this animal inside of him from the impression I got of him from the first book. He seemed so reserved and like a “goody goody” type I guess you could say. That was not at all what he was like here. He was still sweet, caring Sawyer, but with a sex appeal, that very much rivaled Beau’s.

I like that Lana got a makeover in this book. Not that she wasn’t pretty or anything like that, but Abbi sexed her up a bit and I liked seeing a character take charge like that. Go after what she wanted. Again, very different from the last book. My impression of Lana in the last book was nothing like she is in this book. I loved the change. This book has a lot of sexual teenage tension, something a lot of us can relate to, lol. But the biggest thing is this book was the love between Sawyer and Lana, even though it took awhile for them to realize it, when you were reading about them together, you could feel their love for each other. Even right now as I think about it, I get goosebumps. I absolutely LOVED this book. I laughed, and I cried, it thrilled me and made me mad, this book struck every emotion I had, and it was the perfect ending. I loved it!!
