An unexpected affair leads to mind-blowing harmony in this Sea Breeze novel from New York Times bestselling author Abbi Glines.Jason is sick of living in his rock star brother’s shadow. So when he ships off to Sea Breeze, Alabama, he’s looking for a much deserved escape and a chance to blow off some envious steam. Falling for the local bad girl was definitely not the plan. But as the new duo enjoys some naughty fun in the Alabama sun, Jason learns that even though Jax is the musician in the family, he’s not the only brother who can rock someone’s world.
Back in March I discovered Abbi Glines and her Sea Breeze series. Unfortunately for me, I started listening on audio and when I do that? I “have” to finish the series that way too – which means I’m a few books behind as I wait for the next one to become available! When Misbehaving was released on Audible last week I had already pre-ordered and was anxious to start!
We met Jason in book one, Breathe, and I have to admit? I didn’t really care for him. We met Jess in several of the books, but we saw the most of her (and Jason again) in Just for Now as they both tried their hardest to keep Preston and Amanda apart. Which means that going into Misbehaving? I didn’t have high hopes for either character – they both had strikes against them! But, I’m pleased to say that I was pleasantly surprised! Seeing inside Jason’s head made him MUCH more likable, and Jess herself is reformed too! Their story was sweet and everything I’ve come to love about the Sea Breeze series. Both characters are flawed, and both are keeping their secrets – which ultimately drives them apart. (Sure, it’s formulaic, but I love it anyway!)
As with the previous books, what really makes this story is the rest of the characters from Sea Breeze! (And Abbi Glines does a FANTASTIC job of intertwining their lives.) And of course, Jess’s mom is a huge Gilmore Girls fan, always on the lookout for her daughters ‘Logan’ – how could you not love her??
This book had me wanting to pull the weeds in my garden, just so I could get a few more minutes to listen! I love every minute I get to spend in Sea Breeze Alabama and I can’t wait until my next visit! I would recommend this book to fans of Sarah Dessen, Nyrae Dawn and K.A. Tucker!
