Marcus Hardy had hoped to enjoy a year away at college while he put the summer he’d rather forget behind him. But instead, he’s jerked right back to the coastal town of Sea Breeze, Alabama due to a family crisis. His dear ol’ dad found himself a girlfriend only a few years older than Marcus. So now his sister needs help dealing with their mother who is mentally falling apart. The only bright spot to returning is the fascinating red head who sleeps over several times a week. The problem is she’s sleeping in bed with his new roommate, Cage York. 

Willow “Low” Foster needs a place to live. Running to Cage’s apartment every time her sister kicks her out isn’t exactly a long term solution. Juggling her courses at the local community college and a part time job doesn’t produce excess income. But Cage has a new roommate and suddenly sleeping over at her best friend’s apartment isn’t such a bad thing. Not when she gets to see those sexy green eyes of Marcus Hardy’s twinkle when he smiles at her like he wants her there. 
Even though Cage seems a little territorial where Low is concerned, Marcus finds time to spend with Low without upsetting his roommate. Cage may use his small college baseball star persona to sleep with every hot female in his path but he’s still under the disillusion that when he’s through sowing his wild oats, he’s going to marry Low. Marcus intends to change that assumption for both Cage and Low. Until his carefully laid plans come crashing down with a revelation he never expected. He’ll have to choose between Low or his family. Because once the truth comes out…. there’s no other choice.

My Rating: 5 stars

My Thoughts:

This book was AMAZING! Abbi Glines is just a fantastic writer! This book just sucks you right in from the very first page!

When Willow “Low” shows up at Marcus’s apartment crying looking for Cage, the rest is history. Although Cage says to stay away because she is the girl that he is going to marry, Marcus can’t. He and Low are both drawn to each other from the second their eyes meet. It’s practically insta-love!

The romance that blossom between the two of them is just breathtaking and so real! Marcus is adorable and sweet and hot and just amazing! Low, I don’t even know what to say about her except that she is now one of my favorite characters ever! She is so sweet and naïve and cares sooo much about everyone else! I also love Cage who is kind of a jerk but seeing how he takes care of and loves Low, makes up for it!

Just like all Glines other books, this is told from both Marcus and Low’s POV. You get to see each of the problems that they are dealing with and how they are connected. Of course, you can also see each of their emotions and desires that the feel for each other, and let me tell you they’re intense!

The plot in this book was just flawless and I loved every second of it. The writing was so real, as were the emotions that it made you feel. I am starting the sequel While it Lasts immediately after this because I just can’t get enough of Abbi Glines stories!

If you’re a fan of The Vincent Boys, then what are you waiting for?? Read this book!
