The Vincent Brothers (The Vincent Boys, #2) by Abbi Glines

The Vincent Brothers (The Vincent Boys, #2)
Blurb (from Goodreads):
Sawyer Vincent is still heartbroken over his breakup with Ashton Gray - made worse because he lost her to his brother - but Lana McDaniel thinks she might just have a cure. Lana's lived in her cousin Ashton's shadow all her life, but now she's taking the lead and is determined to make Sawyer her man. But can she be sure that Sawyer's not just using her to get back at Ashton? And what if Sawyer sees through her new sexy version of herself and discovers the shy, geeky girl she used to be?

The Vincent Brothers picks up where The Vincent Boys left off - with twice the fun, twice the excitement and twice the sexy.


The Vincent Brothers by Abbi Glines

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


The Vincent Brothers (The Vincent Boys, #2)(Source: Purchased from Amazon.co.uk on kindle for only 99p!)
This is the second book in the Vincent Brothers series – I haven’t read the first one, but that didn’t really seem to matter, the book can be read as a standalone.
Lana is heading to her cousin’s house for the summer. She’s given herself a makeover, and all in the name of one person – Sawyer Vincent. Sawyer was her cousin Ash’s boyfriend for 3 years, but they broke up 6 months ago when Ash dumped Sawyer for his brother Beau. Now Lana has decided that Sawyer has had enough time to get over Ash, and she’s going to make her move.

Sawyer thinks Lana looks hot when he meets her again after such a long time. He’s not interested in a girlfriend, but a summer fling would be nice. Lana isn’t interested in a summer fling though, she wants Sawyer 100% or not at all.
Can Lana get Sawyer interested? Is Sawyer really over Ash? And can Lana and Sawyer ever be more than a summer fling?


I’d heard loads of good things about this book, so when I spotted it for only 99p on kindle I had to have it!
The story was nice, if a little cliché, but the best thing about this book was the romance and heat between Lana and Sawyer. Lana and Sawyer together were simply hot! There was no actual sex, but boy did they create some heat between them!

I disliked how Sawyer treated Lana at times, he totally ignored her in favour of doing something for Ash, and never told her that all he wanted was a fling, even when he knew that wasn’t what she wanted. It really did take a massive kick up the backside to get him to admit his real feelings.

I liked the storyline, although like I say it was a bit clich̩ at times Рlots of misunderstandings and jumping to conclusions going on. The way that Lana hid at times also put a bit of a dampener on things, because not much can happen when your two main characters have absolutely no contact.

I did enjoy this book overall; purely for the heat between Lana and Sawyer! This was definitely a book that kept me up reading instead of going to sleep!
8 out of 10.


Today I am Reading... Someone Else's Fairytale (Someone Else's Fairytale #1) by Emily Mah Tippetts


Someone Else's Fairytale
Blurb (from Goodreads):
Jason Vanderholt, Hollywood's hottest actor, falls head over heels for everygirl, Chloe Winters, who hasn't gotten around to watching most of his movies. She becomes the woman every other woman in America is dying to be, but it just isn't her fairytale.
