The Vincent Brothers by Abbi Glines

Goodreads Summary:

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.


*sigh* there is something about Sawyer and Beau Vincent that just makes this girl weak in the knees.  When I read The Vincent Boys I was sure in love with bad-boy Beau.

However, times have changed Beau is with Ashton and Sawyer is on his own trying to deal with this situation. (Not going very well at first).  Now enters Lana, Ashton's cousin.  Lana has her own family drama and I can say that I truly felt sorry for this girl.  I was so happy when Sawyer and Lana began to hang out together.  But, you know that Sawyer just cannot stop loving Ashton and trust me Lana tries.  I did enjoy seeing a different side of Sawyer than in the last book.  He has a little bad-boy in him that we had not seen.  On top of that, the ending was very good!

I really enjoyed this story BUT THERE WAS ONE THING MISSING.  Beau and Ashton has the "truck scene" but we did not get one of those for Sawyer and Lana.  THEN, Abbi did announce that if she received 200 reviews on Amazon that she would release that scene!  (HEHE) I cannot wait for that.

  1. The covers of these books intrigue me. They are so unusual and I like the color schemes. I will eventually have to check them out.
