The Vincent Boys

Title: The Vincent Boys
Author: Abbi Glines
Rating: 3.5/5
SummaryBeing the good girl isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Ashton Gray has grown weary of playing the part to please her parents, and to be worthy of the town’s prince charming, Sawyer Vincent. Maybe That’s why she’s found herself spending time with Sawyer’s cousin, Beau, while he’s away for the summer camping with his family. Beau is nothing like her perfect boyfriend. He’s the sexiest guy she’s ever seen, dangerous in ways she’s only day dreamed about, and the one guy she should stay away from. 
Beau never envied Sawyer his loving parents, his big nice home, or his position as quarterback. He loves him like a brother. Which is why he's tried everything in his power to keep his distance from Sawyer’s girlfriend. Even if he has loved her since the age of five, Ashton is Sawyer’s girl, so therefore she’s off limits. But when Sawyer leaves for the summer, Ashton, the one girl Beau would move Heaven and Earth for, decides she wants to get into trouble. Stabbing the one person who’s always accepted him and stood by him in the back, is the cost of finally holding Ashton Gray in his arms. Is she worth losing his cousin over?.... Hell Yeah.
My Thoughts: A really close friend of mine had recommended this book to me, and I'm so glad she did! The Vincent Boys follows the life of Ashton Gray, a high schooler who is torn between 2 cousins, Sawyer and Beau Vincent.
Over-all the book was, to sum it up, not complicated. There was no gloom doom over an impending death threat or a battle between two mythical creatures over one girl. The book was simple, and so I have decided to keep my review simple too. 
This was a nice story about a girl who wants to be herself. A girl who loves a boy and finally realizes that he’s what she needs. It reminds me of a soap opera of sorts…a guilty pleasure. I’m interested to see if the next book develops these characters further, if we get to know more about Sawyer and how things turn out. And, of course, I look forward to more Beau!
Favorite Quote: “She started walking toward me and perfect white teeth caught her full bottom lip between them. I’d fantasized about those lips way too many times. She’d barely covered up her long tanned legs with a pair of shorts that made me want to go to church this Sunday just to thank God for creating her.”
