Book Review: The Vincent Brothers by Abbi Glines
Title: The Vincent Brothers
Author: Abbi Glines
Publication Date: June 5, 2012
Synopsis: He may have given her up without a fight, but Sawyer Vincent is far from over losing the girl he’s loved all of his life. 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.
Review: I just finished this book this morning and I must say that Abbi Glines has yet to disappoint me with her books. I haven't read a book of hers that I that I haven't liked. I think this was a perfect sequel for The Vincent Boys.
Sawyer and Lana's relationship was so much different than Beau and Ashton's, I think it surprised me a little bit. It was so innocent and just all out sweet. Sometimes in this book, though, Sawyer annoyed me. He was so "Ashton, Ashton, Ashton" in the beginning. It was annoying. Lana was awesome, and it seemed like she was the complete opposite of Ashton which I think Sawyer needed.
My favorite parts in this book were the camping scene and the scene where Beau gets to talk to his real father about how proud his dad was of him. Camping in books is always amazing and in the other scene I was tearing up. It was the perfect scene for them. The ending of this book was amazing too. I think the ending fit the characters.
In the end, this book is freaking great! I recommend this series to everyone, no wait I recommend Abbi Glines to everyone. Her books are amazing and I cannot wait until her next book comes out.
