Review: The Vincent Brothers by Abbi Glines

Title: The Vincent Brothers

Author: Abbi Glines

Source: bought off Barnes & Noble

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 take...
Just wanted to do a mini review about how much I loved this book. I inhaled every stinking digital word on my nook. Gosh, Abbi is one amazing author who knows what she is doing. She captured every emotion wonderfully and presented it in a way that had me feeling as if I was right there on that roller coaster of love with Lana. Yep I do believe that The Vincent Brothers was way better than The Vincent Boys. And I really loved the first book, alot!

I thought Beau was so hot in The Vincent Boys but he ain't got nothing on Sawyer in this one. When Ashton left Sawyer 6 months ago...the boy did some changing and it was all for the best, in my opinion. I didn't care much for him in the first book but absolutely, freaking loved him in this one. The boy was hot, hot, hot!! I loved how it took one girl to change him...flip him around...and make him see the world in a whole new light. I can't believe I am about to say this but Sawyer is the hotter Vincent Boy! Yep, yep, yep!!

Sure the storyline is not so original...you get a boy who plans to use the girl to get his ex back...and the girl being used is secretly in love with the boy...so yeah someone is gonna get hurt. But Abbi took that generic storyline and gave it life and love and sexiness. Brilliant, absolutely brilliant!

So if you get a chance…go get The Vincent Brothers Today. You will thank me later. If you haven’t read the first book yet…you’re an idiot…well not really…but you need to get a hoppin’ and pick it up now!
