[Review] The Vincent Boys - Abbi Glines

Title of Book : The Vincent Boys (Vincent Boys #1)
Author : Abbi Glines
Publisher : Simon Pulse

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....

The Vincent Boys is the first book in Vincent Boys duo logy. It tells a story about Sawyer Vincent, his girlfriend Ashton Gray, and his cousin Beau Vincent. Those three have been good friends since they were young. The story takes place when they’ve grown up and in high school. Sawyer leaves the town to spend summer with his family. Ashton, being on her own, tries to reconnect with her childhood friend, Beau. Apparently, what they do is more than just old friends reconnecting.
The Vincent Boys is told from Ashton and Beau’s points of view. That way we could see things from both sides. I like the transitions between their views. It makes me get the whole story from them. Beau, the main male character is the bad boy in town. Meanwhile Ashton, is the preacher’s daughter, literally. It’s nice to see these two who came from different situation. Although I’m pretty sure most girls who read this book will love Beau more than Sawyer, I can’t help but sympathize with Sawyer. I’m sorry but I love Sawyer more. As for Ashton, she’s not my favorite character in the book. Sometimes she appears as a shallow and spoiled girl who has everything a girl ever wants but she wants more.
This book is set on summer. Even though The Vincent Boys is categorized as a young adult book, this book’s steaminess is not. I read the cut version and oh boy! There is an extended and uncut version of this book if you feel that the cut version is not hot enough. Also, I like the southern feels that I get from reading this book. It feels fit with the theme and the summer thing.
The conflict is not only about the triangle love between Ashton, Beau, and Sawyer. There’s also a big secret between The Vincents. But that problem is only explained briefly. The ending makes me want to read the second book. All in all, I think The Vincent Boys is a nice quick summer read.
