Sawyer and Lana’s romance just got steamier in this exclusive eBook-only companion to the printed original that includes scandalous, heart-pounding scenes.Getting a boy to fall head-over-heels in love with you isn’t easy. Especially when he’s been in love with your cousin for as long as you can remember. Lana has lived her life in her cousin’s shadow. Ashton always made perfect grades, had tons of friends, and looks model-perfect. And she’s always had Sawyer Vincent—the only boy Lana’s ever wanted—wrapped around her finger. But now things are different. Lana has a chance to make Sawyer see her, and she’s taking it. If only he’d get over Ashton—because Lana is sick of second-best. Sawyer’s heart is broken. He’s lost his best girl to his best friend. And then Lana comes to town. Ashton’s cousin has always been sweet and soft-spoken, but now she’s drop-dead gorgeous as well. Sawyer doesn’t know if Lana can heal his broken heart, but spending time with her might at least make Ashton jealous. What starts as a carefree fling becomes a lusty game of seduction. Sawyer and Lana may have different motives, but their scintillating hookups are the same kind of steamy. . . .

I loved the story of Beau and Ashton (Vincent Boys) but the story of Sawyer and Lana blew me away. I was so invested in these characters that I didn’t want this story to end!

I loved Sawyer in the previous book, but it was so obvious that he and Ashton weren’t right for each other. And Lana? She was such a sweetheart, so when I realized this book was their story? I was anxious to get started! This story had you experiencing so many emotions at once, it was a real roller coaster – but the best kind!

Beau and Ashton play a small roll in this book, but Beau’s part is pretty significant in the whole scheme of things. We get to see how these two have dealt with the twists that came in book one, and how their family handles it as well. (I loved this twist, and it’s hard for me to write about because of the spoilers!)

There is something about Abbi Glines and her stories that just hooks me. Her characters are beautifully flawed in a way that almost anyone can relate to. Her plots are well fleshed out and realistic, and her words paint a vivid picture of these people, making it so easy to get lost in the pages.

All that said? Sadly, the one hang up for me was the ending.  (It’s also what held me from giving this book 5 stars!) The Epilogue really felt forced to me – and reminded me why I don’t necessarily like to flash WAY into the future. (I really could have done without seeing their wedding days, to me that’s one of those things I like to keep up to the readers mind!)

I strongly recommend reading The Vincent Boys first, but then? The Vincent Brothers is a phenomenal follow up!
