Fifty Shades of Grey meets Jenny Han’s Summer series in this sizzling account of attraction and betrayal.There was something wicked about Beau that drew me to him. What was wrong with me? Why did I want to sin so badly
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….
I’ve buddyread this book with my lovely sistah Beatrice. (Click her name to read her beautiful review of this book) 🙂
The Vincent Boys is a sweet and adorable NA story. It’s light, quick, and easy to read. One of the reasons why I opted to read this book is because my love for Abbi Glines is immense. I fell in love with her Rosemary Beach series, and although this book wasn’t exactly as good as Rosemary Beach, it still surprised me.
I love Ashton and Beau’s story. At first I was so skeptical because of the love triangle thingy and the involvement of the major character Sawyer and especially the fact that there was cheating involved, but believe me when I say that all of these things did not matter as I’ve read the book because there was nothing seriously heavy about the story. The plot was simple and the peaceful setting was enough to make me feel warm and fuzzy inside.
This book was not perfect in terms of overall impact. The characters have flaws but the good thing is, there was an emotional depth in the story and there was a remakrable closure which made me smile in the end. And oh, who doesn’t love a hot, gorgeous bad boy like Beau who does everything to protect his girl? *SWOONS! Overall, it’s a nice guilty-pleasure and feel-good book– something that basically cures reading slumps. I recommend this to NA lovers like me! :))
