Sawyer Vincent is still heartbroken over his breakup with Ashton Gray - made worse because he lost her to his brother - but Lana McDaniel thinks she might just have a cure. Lana's lived in her cousin Ashton's shadow all her life, but now she's taking the lead and is determined to make Sawyer her man. But can she be sure that Sawyer's not just using her to get back at Ashton? And what if Sawyer sees through her new sexy version of herself and discovers the shy, geeky girl she used to be?
THE VINCENT BROTHERS picks up where THE VINCENT BOYS left off - with twice the fun, twice the excitement and twice the sexy.
After reading the first book I was keen to start The Vincent Brothers to see if things would turn around for Sawyer after he was rejected by Ashton. Sawyer was a bit broken after what happened between himself, Ashton and Beau. He is not sure as to what his path is now and he’s secretly hoping that she will come back to him. He still tends to still seek Ashton out even though she has moved on. Sawyer is sweet and I like him, but he has changed a lot since everything went down. He is a bit tougher around the edges and not as polite as what he was, but betrayal will do that to you.
We learnt that Lana had a bit of a thing for Sawyer in book one and plans on trying to win him over during the summer. She has grown up a lot and has perked up her appearance as well. She is struggling with her life at home since the split of her parents and needs a break. She tries to put on a strong front but deep down she wants to be number 1 for a change. Lana is a sweet girl and is looking for comfort elsewhere since things are difficult at home. I liked how she wanted to become her own person and step out from her parents shadow to do things for herself. She is usually quite shy, but has decided it is time to grab what she wants now. I liked this change in her, but at times she frustrated me but I think it’s more because she was sheltered for so long.
Watching these two get to know each other again was sweet. Sawyers feelings are like a yoyo and just when he thinks he is moving on he gets pulled back to Ashton. He still struggles with his relationship with Beau and really wants to have a fling over the summer to help him move on. Lana doesn't want a fling, she wants more and Sawyer constantly hurts her. At times he is a complete jerk but she is a bit naive to forgive him so easily because she wants is to be accepted by someone. They really take their time to explore the sexual chemistry between them as well, instead of rushing right into it.
I liked how this book played out and thought that it was a fitting sequel to the Vincent Boys. There were a lot of loose ends tied up in both boys’ lives and the girls also found a bit of closure throughout the journey. There weren’t a lot of sex scenes in this book, but it has more to do with the characters and their respect for one another, than anything else. Abbi sure knows how to tell a cute story and has quickly become a must read when she puts out new books! If you enjoy sweet little romances in a country setting, I’m sure you will enjoy these!
