Summary: 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...

My Thoughts:  I honestly didn’t know what I would think of this when I read the summary but I wanted to read it anyway.

As I started it, I still wasn’t too sure. I used to really like books that were “sexy” but anymore I mostly just like them with a hint of romance, more like sappy innocent romance I guess. And this one did get kind of graphic for young adult. But surprisingly I enjoyed it!

We are introduced to Ashton who is the girl who always hung out with the Vincent Boys. Beau and Sawyer were very tasty! I have a hard time figuring out who I want! But in the end, I think its Beau for me.

Well Ashton is dating Sawyer but he’s away for the summer and she ends up spending a lot of time with his cousin Beau. All three of them hung out constantly as kids. Beau and Ashton would get into trouble and Sawyer would get them out.

Ashton spends a lot of time with Beau and finds herself rekindling their friendship and then some. Beau has his own girlfriend though. But, Sawyer gets back and so many secrets are revealed and Ash is kind of just stuck.

This was full of romance, sweet times and funny times. I couldn’t get enough. Things aren’t perfect and Beau sees the real Ash. It’s complicated, complex, and things aren’t really what they seem.

This is another one of those you're either gonna hate or love and I was very hesitant but will I be reading the next in this series? Yep! And I picked up another one of Glines books as well. I can’t wait to see if I like them or... not?

Overall: I ended up really liking it! All the characters are very likable and the plot is entertaining enough.

Cover: Uh, guy with his shirt off? Um yes please. LOL. I like the cover though, its cute.

I just read my first Abbi Glines book recently. Fallen Too Far. I was so presently surprised that I'm going to have to read more books by her. I'm glad this one sounds pretty good too :)
