This week's Tease comes from

The Vincent Boys
Abbi Glines

First - The Blurb:

Ashton is getting tired of being good, of impressing her parents and playing ideal girlfriend to Sawyer Vincent. Sawyer is perfect, a regular Prince Charming, but when he leaves town for the summer, it’s his cousin Beau who catches Ashton’s eye. Beau is the sexiest guy she’s ever seen, and even though he’s dangerous, Ashton is drawn to him.

Beau loves his cousin like a brother, so the last thing he wants to do is make a move on Sawyer’s girl. Ashton is off-limits, absolutely. That’s why he does his best to keep his distance, even though he’s been in love with her forever. When Ashton wants to rekindle their childhood friendship in Sawyer’s absence, Beau knows he should say no.

Ashton and Beau don’t want to hurt Sawyer. But the more they try to stay away from each other, the more intense their urges become. It’s getting way too hard to resist....

Second - The Tease:

Beau's arm eventually slid down to settle on my shoulders. Absently he started tracing small circles on my upper arm. It was almost as if little jolts of electricity were zinging through my body. I hoped he couldn't tell my breathing was getting erratic. I closed my eyes and fantasized about how it would feel to run my hands under his T-shirt and touch the soft skin that covered his hard chest. I glanced up at him through my lashes and his attention was completely on the movie. He had no idea he was driving me crazy.

A little hint here. Beau was not as oblivious as Ashton thought.

Third - My Thoughts:

Okay, this is a book I had a really hard time putting down. Right from the first page, I was drawn into Ashton and Beau's world.
Ashton - finally realizing that she needs to be herself and stop pretending she's someone else, finds herself caught in a situation which can not end well.
Beau - finally unleashing his hidden feelings, must decide between the girl he has loved for most of his life and the cousin/best friend who has always stood by his side no matter what.

The story is told from both Ashton and Beau's POV which is great because you can tell what they are both thinking and feeling about each other and the predicament they are in. Neither of them wants to hurt Sawyer - Ashton's boyfriend / Beau's cousin - but can it be avoided?

I should warn that there are a few explicit scenes which may leave you breathless. (18+)

If you haven't read this book yet, then you really need to. Beau is a bad boy - but in a good way.

My Rating 5 out of 5 Stars
