Summary (from Goodreads)

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.

This is quite possibly the best contemporary I have EVER read. I enjoyed every minute of The Vincent Boys. I didn’t want it to end. It is one of those books that you wish had unlimited pages to turn. You just want to keep reading it forever.

Beau is just plain awesomeness. He is just a guy made up purely of awesome! I want a few Beau’s on hand at all times for me. Now you all know, that I am not normally one for the bad boys- but I didn’t find Beau to be bad. Not really. He cared so much about Ashton, and he is such a great match for her. He really gets her, and that is the most important thing. I loved how Ashton could just be herself with Beau. Sawyer seems great, and I’m sure he is a great guy but he just seemed fake to me. I started to warm up to him at the very end. I know things must have been hard for him to deal with but still. I guess my main problem was that he wasn’t Beau.

This book has such a steamy, awesome, and sweet romance. I could not get enough of it. It ended so perfectly that I am sure it is a stand alone book. And it works great as one, the problem is- I don’t want it to be a stand alone. I want to read more about Ashton! So much more.

Abbi Glines tells such a great story in The Vincent Boys. I loved it so much. And I didn’t just love the characters, the writing is what got to me. Abbi writes so well. You just can’t stop turning the pages. You want more, but yet you want to pace yourself so you can savor the book. I can’t say enough good things about this book. If you are looking for a cute contemporary with a wonderful romance, choose The Vincent Boys. You won’t be sorry you did. 

5/5 Gavels.

    I’m part of the blog tour, also, so don’t put me in for the giveaway. I love your review. I agree w/you completely. I think it’s great what you said about Sawyer, he’s a great guy , he’s just not Beau. Abbi’s books hold up against any of the great contemporary YA out there.

  2. Michelle @ Book Briefs

    @Brittany: haha that is funny. I guess there is just something about Beau! I mean Sawyer is nice but it is hard for anyone to shine in Beau’s shadow in my opinion.

    Thanks for commenting everyone! Good luck 🙂 and check out my other giveaways up at the top.

    When your review says it’s the best contemporary romance you’ve ever read, that makes me super interested in reading it.

    Great review. Your enthusiasm for the book is infectious! This has been on my TBR for quite some time now and your review just pushed it up to the top of the list for me. I finally did buy the kindle copy of the book when it was on sale recently, so you don’t need to enter me in the contest for that. 🙂
