The Vincent Brothers By: Abbi Glines

The Vincent Brothers
Author: Abbi Glines
Publisher: Self Published
Rating: 5/5

   Instead of giving up his best friend and the girl he thought he’d spend forever with, he gave Ashton and his brother Beau his blessing. However, adjusting to seeing Ashton wrapped up in Beau’s arms isn’t easy. Complicating everything even more, Ashton’s cousin Lana is in town for the summer. Sweet, kind, soft-spoken Lana, who gets under his skin.Just being near her makes him forget all about Ashton and his broken heart. Lana is everything he wanted Ashton to be except she isn’t Ashton. She lacks the backbone to stand up for herself and confidence that Ashton wears like a crown.  
     Lana McDaniel  has lived her life in her cousin's shadow. While Lana struggled with her grades no matter how hard she tried, her mother praised Ashton's intelligence. She hadn’t been blessed with Ashton’s blond hair and flawless skin, but that didn't keep her mother from lamenting her naturally red hair and freckles. But none of that would have mattered if Ashton hadn’t always had Sawyer Vincent wrapped around her finger -- the only boy Lana wanted. Once Ashton let Sawyer go, Lana had been so sure that he’d move on. Determined to make Sawyer finally see her, she'd talked her mother into letting her spend the summer with Ashton. But Sawyer is still in love with Ashton, and Lana isn’t going to be anyone's rebound girl. No matter how yummy Sawyer Vincent’s kisses taste.

   The Vincent Brothers is the sequel to The Vincent Boys by Abbi Glines in The Vincent Boys series. In The Vincent Boys, we got to read Beau, Ashton, and Sawyer's story, but in The Vincent Brothers, Sawyer gets a story of his own (along with Lana, Ashton's cousin). 

   I can't even express to you guys how shocked I was by this book- primarily because of Sawyers COMPLETE transformation. In The Vincent Boys I found him really boring and ughh (I was a huge Beau fan *chants: Beau is number one! Beau is number one*) But man....did Sawyer ever change in this book. It's like he took an extra dose of sexiness in between book one and two- my jaw dropped at some of the things he said to Lana (In a good way...a very good way ;) It really feels like your reading through a completely new character- I really admire Abbi Glines for being able to reinvent his character so well. In The Vincent Boys you fell in love with Beau, but in The Vincent Brothers Sawyer will have you questioning which Vincent boy you love more *Ummm Beau! Ummm Sawyer! Ummm...!!!*

   With a new sexy male, comes and even sexier romance. *Blasts fan* Damnn there was some hot stuff in The Vincent Brothers. I think with each book Abbi Glines is getting steamier and steamier- making her books absolutely addicting. I am absolutely mesmerized by how much this book made me blush and giggle. The chemistry between Sawyer and Lana burns up the page, leaving you yearning for more. It was one of my most enjoyable reads of the summer so far. 

   At first I was a little concerned with Lana's character at the beginning of the book. I really didn't like the idea of her completely changing her appearance for a guy because as a girl, I truly believe we should do things for ourselves and not anyone else. But I quickly saw  a lot of great things from her character- specifically from her feelings and commitment towards Sawyer. Once her and Sawyer got together she told him exactly what she wanted and told him straight out when she was upset or insecure with his lingering feelings for Ash. I really loved seeing this determination in her character! 

   I have to finish off with saying how much I loved seeing bits and pieces of Beau and Ash. Being able to see another character's perspective on them was really interesting because we've only ever read about Beau and Ash's relationship through their perspective. But most of all, I loved how Glines was able to show us how Beau and Ash's relationship still wasn't perfect. We get to see Ash and Beau go through a bit of a rumble in this book and I just loved how "real" it made this couple seem. It was a great tid-bit that I thoroughly enjoyed :D


   For those of you that have already read The Vincent Brothers: Were any of you a little (and I mean really) curious to see what Ash and Beau were doing in their tent??? *guilty blush* :)


Favourite Quotes...


"Maybe what I feel is wrong. Because, I did love Ashton. She was all I needed...but never did I feel the uncontrollable desire to get her underneath me." His voice dropped. "Never did I make up reasons to get her to wrap her legs around me so I could feel her pressed up against me. Never," he swallowed hard. "Never, did I think about being inside her." 


"Cause although you loved Ash, she wasn't the one. When you fall for the one that owns you, she'll be the only one that has the power to make you cry."


"Lana. I think about you every minute of every day. When I'm with you, my world is complete. When I touch you, I understand the meaning of life. When I lost you, I completely shattered. You. Own. Me." 


Overall...


   Overall I think all of you should gather your fans and get comfy because The Vincent Brothers will keep you flipping pages until the very end. If your like me, and have doubts about Sawyer's character.....don't. Between Sayer's new attitude and the sizziling chemistry between him and Lana, you'll have no choice but to love The Vincent Brothers! .....I really wish there was another Vincent sibling we could read about :(
