Being the good girl isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Ashton Gray has grown weary of playing the part to please her parents, and to be worthy of the town’s prince charming, Sawyer Vincent. Maybe That’s why she’s found herself spending time with Sawyer’s cousin, Beau, while he’s away for the summer camping with his family. Beau is nothing like her perfect boyfriend. He’s the sexiest guy she’s ever seen, dangerous in ways she’s only day dreamed about, and the one guy she should stay away from.
Beau never envied Sawyer his loving parents, his big nice home, or his position as quarterback. He loves him like a brother. Which is why he’s tried everything in his power to keep his distance from Sawyer’s girlfriend. Even if he has loved her since the age of five, Ashton is Sawyer’s girl, so therefore she’s off limits. But when Sawyer leaves for the summer, Ashton, the one girl Beau would move Heaven and Earth for, decides she wants to get into trouble. Stabbing the one person who’s always accepted him and stood by him in the back, is the cost of finally holding Ashton Gray in his arms. Is she worth losing his cousin over?…. Hell Yeah.
Lori’s Review: 5 Stars
OMG I loved this book. Ashton and Sawyer seemed to be the perfect couple. But Ashton is in love with Sawyers cousin/best friend Beau.
What I liked:
I love an angsty love triangle. This book was one of the best love triangles I have ever read. All three of the characters are great and you cheer for each and everyone of them.
The story is told from Beau and Ashton’s point of view so you get to see both sides of the story. You get to know all the secrets before the characters do and groan when they make stupid descions.
Abbi Glines is a fantastic writer and makes us care about these characters. This is a relatively short book and she manages to grab the reader from the get go. A few short pages into it I was sucked in.
Beau and Sawyer are both dreamy. Seriously both guys have a lot going for them. It would have been easier if Ms. Glines had made Sawyer horrible then Ash’s decision would have been easy and we wouldn’t feel so heartbroken over Sawyer.
What I didn’t like:
Not much. Maybe the length was too short. But that’s not too bad. There were a few typos but that doesn’t affect my rating.
I didn’t like the name Ashton (I keep picturing a boy when I read it).
Ashton was the least sympathetic of all the characters to me. She was a little too whiny in parts but she wasn’t horrible.
