A Week With The Vincent Boys Celebration! (GIVEAWAY)

It's been a year? WHAT?!? Wow! It has been a year since Abbi Glines gave us The Vincent Boys and I was drooling over Beau Vincent.  Sawyer did NOTHING for me UNTIL he got his own book!  Then I was drooling over Sawyer Vincent in The Vincent Brothers. 

What's TOTALLY cool is that there are new covers to celebrate AND some SWEET international covers too!  So check out this....

There was something wicked about Beau that drew me to him. What was wrong with me? Why did I want to sin so badly

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....

Here's my review of The Vincent Boys. 

 I also had the pleasure of having Ashton on my blog.  Here's that interview:

Hey, Ash.  Thanks for agreeing to talk to me.  I love that we're meeting at Hanks.

You're welcome. They have the best sweet tea here. It was either here or the bar and I figured this would be easier. Honey was sure to be all in our business if we met at the bar. 

So, you ran a little wild when you were younger.  What caused you to become the good girl?

My parents never caught me and Beau wreaking havoc as kids. Sawyer was always there to cover our tracks. But as we got older and Sawyer started noticing me I convinced myself I had to walk the straight and narrow to keep him interested in me. Changing for a boy is never a wise move but I did it. 

Growing up, who were you closer to - Beau or Sawyer? 

Beau. It was always the two of us against the world. He had major family issues and he didn't like to appear weak in front of Sawyer. So the nights he was scared he'd come to my house and we'd either hang out on my roof talking or go throw water balloons at passing cars. I wanted to get his mind off his home life. I hated seeing him so sad. I think he needed me back then and that is a big reason we were so close. 

Do you remember the first time you noticed that either Beau or Sawyer was, um ... male?

Yes. When other girls started giggling whenever Beau walked by I started looking at him through their eyes. He was gorgeous even back then. Sawyer soon had his own share of fans. I kept waiting for Beau to see me as something more than a buddy but it didn't happen. So, I turned my attention to Sawyer. 

Can you describe Beau in 5 words or less?

Determined, confident, fascinating, possessive, and sweet (yes I said sweet)

Can you describe Sawyer in 5 words or less?

trustworthy, dependable, charming, talented, forgiving

Describe the perfect day with Beau.

A picnic basket, a blanket, Beau's truck, a couple of fishing poles and our spot at the bay. 

Describe the perfect day with Sawyer.

A picnic basket, a blanket, Beau's truck, a couple of fishing poles and our spot at the bay. 

Describe the perfect day with Sawyer.

We both love The Dave Matthews Band. So a perfect day with Sawyer would involve a Dave Matthews concert. We always have fun bowling too. Maybe a drive down to the beach to eat at one of his favorite seafood restaurants then we'd go bowling and end the night with a summer concert on the beach featuring Dave Matthews. 

When Sawyer first told you he would be gone for so long over the summer, what were your first thoughts?

I was going to have the worst summer of my life. Sawyer had become the center of my world. I did the things he wanted to do and went the places he wanted to go. Without him around to decide my next move I was worried I'd be lost. 

If you could have one wish grated, no questions, what would it be?

For fear of giving too much away, I'll just say one word and those who have read the book will understand "Grana"

Skittles or M&M's- Skittles. 
Dark or light hair- Light ;) 
Brown, Blue or Green eyes - hazel
DVD or movie theater- DVD
Dinner out or in- out
Mountain or ocean- Ocean

There's one spoilery question below.  If you've read the book and want to read it, just highlight the text to see it.

When Beau slipped his arms around you at the hole and told you that he couldn't live without you, what were you thinking?

That I'd give anything to have him. That I'd rewrite history if I could and choose the right Vincent boy three years ago. And I wondered how I could tell him no. I wanted him and Sawyer to mend their fences but I also wanted Beau. If things hadn't happened the way they did I wonder if I'd been able to stand firm or if I'd given into my heart and been selfish.

Then we got the rest of the story with The Vincent Brothers and some yummy Sawyer!

Add to Goodreads
Getting a boy to fall head-over-heels in love with you isn’t easy. Especially when he’s been in love with your cousin for as long as you can remember.

Lana has lived her life in her cousin’s shadow. Ashton always made perfect grades, had tons of friends, and looks model-perfect. And she’s always had Sawyer Vincent—the only boy Lana’s ever wanted—wrapped around her finger. But now things are different. Lana has a chance to make Sawyer see her, and she’s taking it. If only he’d get over Ashton—because Lana is sick of second-best.

Sawyer’s heart is broken. He’s lost his best girl to his best friend. And then Lana comes to town. Ashton’s cousin has always been sweet and soft-spoken, but now she’s drop-dead gorgeous as well. Sawyer doesn’t know if Lana can heal his broken heart, but spending time with her might at least make Ashton jealous.

What starts as a carefree fling becomes a lusty game of seduction. Sawyer and Lana may have different motives, but their scintillating hookups are the same kind of steamy. . . .

Here's my review of The Vincent Brothers

About this author
Abbi Glines can be found hanging out with rockstars, taking out her yacht on weekends for a party cruise, sky diving, or surfing in Maui. Okay maybe she needs to keep her imagination focused on her writing only. In the real world, Abbi can be found hauling kids (several who seem to show up that don’t belong to her) to all their social events, hiding under the covers with her MacBook in hopes her husband won’t catch her watching Buffy on Netflix again, and sneaking off to Barnes and Noble to spend hours lost in the yummy goodness of books. If you want to find her then check Twitter first because she has a severe addiction to tweeting @abbiglines. She also blogs regularly but rarely about anything life changing. She also really enjoys talking about herself in third person.
