Audiobook Review ~ The Vincent Brothers @abbiglines

vincent

Title: The Vincent Brothers

Series: The Vincent Boys #2

Author: Abbi Glines

Release Date: Jan. 1, 2012

Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance

Getting a boy to fall head-over-heels in love with you isn’t easy. Especially when he’s been in love with your cousin for as long as you can remember.

Lana has lived her life in her cousin’s shadow. Ashton always made perfect grades, had tons of friends, and looks model-perfect. And she’s always had Sawyer Vincent—the only boy Lana’s ever wanted—wrapped around her finger. But now things are different. Lana has a chance to make Sawyer see her, and she’s taking it. If only he’d get over Ashton—because Lana is sick of second-best.

Sawyer’s heart is broken. He’s lost his best girl to his best friend. And then Lana comes to town. Ashton’s cousin has always been sweet and soft-spoken, but now she’s drop-dead gorgeous as well. Sawyer doesn’t know if Lana can heal his broken heart, but spending time with her might at least make Ashton jealous.

What starts as a carefree fling becomes a lusty game of seduction. Sawyer and Lana may have different motives, but their scintillating hookups are the same kind of steamy. . . .

My *****5 Star***** Review

I was tearing up during the prologue, and it just kept getting better from there!

It’s been a while since I’ve read The Vincent Boys, but working on my Finishing the Series Reading Challenge, I knew this was a book I wanted to go back and read – although I’m seriously behind. This book was published 3 years ago!! Either way, I’m so super glad I decided to go back and read this gem!

Let me tell you Sawyer stole my heart before I hit chapter 1. I felt for him soooo bad! Oh, but I absolutely loved the change I saw in Sawyer as he’s dealing with his loss of Ashton. Lana is almost like a drug to him, and it’s HOT!!! There’s pleanty of chemistry and the sweetness that follows is enough to make any woman sigh.

But that awesomeness that is Lana and Sawyer isn’t the whole story. You get the bonus of Beau and Ash! They don’t just fade into the background and I so LOVED getting to see them overcome their own drama! Beau is just as alpha as ever, and I loved seeing that side of Sawyer start to come out, too, where Lana is concerned!

If you read The Vincent Boys and have been putting off The Vincent Brothers like I was, I soooo recommend you rectifying that NOW!!

Finishing the Series Reading Challenge ~ February Update

Finishing

It’s been just over a month since I’ve started this challenge, so I thought it would be a good time to give an update. For covers, I decided to just share the cover of the first book in each series to make things simpler.

I’ll start with the series I’ve completed or have gotten up to date on:

Beautiful series by Jamie McGuire

beautiful

Unfinished Hero series by Kristen Ashley

raid

Death Collectors series by Jessica Sorensen

ember

Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Obsidian

The Maddox Brothers by Jamie McGuire

Beautiful Oblivion

Unraveling You series by Jessica Sorensen

Unraveling

The Vincent Boys by Abbi Glines

So, that’s 7 series so far. My goal for the year is 4, so I’m good so far. Several of these series have more books to be released this year, so I will have to stay caught up to maintain these numbers! Oh, and I’m not counting series that only have one book released so far.

Now, here’s the series that I have read at least one book towards this year (I’m not counting series that I’ve only read one book in):

The Coincidence series by Jessica Sorensen

thecoincidence

I’d already started this series prior to 2015, but I’ve read two more books this year. I have just two more to be caught up.

The Keatyn Chronicles by Jillian Dodd

stalk

I read Adore Me this year, book # 4.5. I have just two more books to complete this series.

So that’s 7 series that I’m caught up on or finished, and a total of nine series that I’ve worked on this year. I might add another challenge in soon just for fun since I’m doing so well on these. Not biting off too much from the start has definitely helped me to stay on top of things this year.

I already have in my possession the last two books in The Keatyn Chronicles, so I expect to finish those soon. Plus, I plan on purchasing Happenstance 3 soon to finish that series. It’ll be towards the end of March before any more books in the series I’m caught up on will be released. March 24th Awakening You in Sorensen’s Unraveling You series will be released, and on the 31st she’s releasing Spark in her Death Collectors series. I swear she never sleeps!

So, how are you doing with the goals you’ve set for yourself? Feeling overwhelmed? If so, I definitely recommend just focusing on just one challenge at a time until you’ve reached your goal. It’s definitely helped me out this year!

Happy Reading,

Alison
