Summary: (from goodreads) Get seduced by a sizzling account of attraction and betrayal in this previously self-published phenomenon.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 know, I'm a bit late to the game. I had heard about this book here and there but being a book reviewer, sometimes adding books to your reading schedule gets hard when its not a review book. I call those non-review books, my fun books and they usually sit on my shelf for sometime before I read one or two. So when Big Honcho Media contacted me about being a part of the "November to Remember" Blog Tour and sent me a copy of the book, now I felt obligated (yes I know what a sacrifice,lol) to read the book. Well let me tell you, when I started reading The Vincent Boys yesterday, I did not think I would be writing the review today. I am a sucker for these YA contemporary romances, they suck me in quickly and don't spit me out until I finish reading them. Of course you won't hear me complaining. 

So The Vincent Boys is a novel that introduces Ashton "Ash", Beau and Swayer. Beau and Swayer are cousins and have grown up with Ashton since they were kids. Now Swayer is dating Ashton for 3 years and Beau is the town bad boy with a "black heart". When they were young, they could not be separated, especially Beau and Ash. They were the town's pranksters and Swayer was who would bail them out. Now they have grown up and attend high school together and since Swayer was the one to ask Ash out first, Beau was removed from the equation. Ash is no longer the prankster but a  good wholesome preacher's daughter. Swayer is the town all American boy, he is just perfect to everyone including Ash. Its summer and Ashton is without Swayer since he is on a summer camping trip with his family and with little to no Internet connection. Ashton hasn't felt this alone in years. So one day Ashton has to help Beau and his girlfriend, since they are drunk and can't drive. Ashton ends up having a conversation with drunk Beau. Then one thing leads to another and they ended up hanging out another day. So Ashton tells Beau she will be his friend again, since she knows she ignored Beau once she began dating Swayer. Of course, sometimes friendships aren't that easy to rekindle, especially when both Beau and Swayer have both been pinning for each other for years. Let's just says the line gets crossed and shizzz hits the fan! When tragedy strikes Ashton and Beau is their for her and Swayer is miles and miles away their lives will forever be changed. 

The Vincent Boys is the correct recipe in a YA contemporary romance novel. You have romance obviously, humor, angst, tragedy and secrets, always secrets. This book will stop whatever you were doing and take a a hold of you until you are done reading it. Abbi Glines is now one authors I will always have an eye out for. I plan to begin reading the sequel The Vincent Brothers by the time this review is posted. The review schedule I mentioned just got a bump thrown in it. If you have not read The Vincent Boys, I strongly suggest that you do. Maybe ask Santa to place it under the Christmas tree. 


  1. I've recently requested this from the library. I can't wait to read it.
