Review: The Vincent Boys

The Vincent Boys - Abbi Glines
Genre - Young Adult Contemporary
Released - October 12, 2011

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.

Sigh. It has been a long time since I've read a book this good. I mean, I cannot tell you how amazing this novel is. What I really loved about this book was (let's be honest) Beau. He is so passionate and rebellious and dreamy. He was the perfect male lead for all of us to swoon over.

The other great thing about The Vincent Boys was how it was written in first person from both Ashton and Beau's perspective. This dual narrative allowed us better insight into the characters heads and we got to see how they both felt about each other and their actions.

Even though Beau and Ashton betray Sawyer, we still loved them and the credit should go to the author for making us invested in what happens to her characters. Despite Ashton cheating on Sawyer, I still wanted her to have her happy ending with Beau and I still cared about what happened to her.

This book has everything. An amazing romance, two hot boys, drama, tears and a satisfying conclusion. You must pick up The Vincent Boys if you're a fan of YA contemporary romance. This one is for you!

  1. So glad you loved it as much as I did! The sequel The Vincent Brothers is Sawyer's story...it's steamier but I still prefer Beau! *swoons*
    The thing I love the most about Abbi Glines is everyone gets their own story...Breathe was about Sadie falling for Jax but we are introduced to Marcus..then in Because Of Low, Marcus falls for Low and we are introduced to Cage...she has a new book coming out on the 31st called While It Lasts and it will feature Cage and I am so excited!

    1. I'm about halfway through The Vincent Brothers and I'm enjoying it but not nearly as much as I enjoyed the first book. Abbi Glines is a great writer and I will definitely be reading more of her stuff now.
