Title:Because of Low (Sea Breeze #2)
Author: Abbi GlinesMarcus 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 Watson.
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.
Cage seems a little territorial where Low is concerned, Marcus finds time to spend with Low without upsetting his roommate. Cage is 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
I absolutely loved breathe it was a sweet and touching story,so when i found out that there was going to be a spinoff i was more than excited.Because of Low comes after Breathe and it centers around Marcus this time. In the previous story, Marcus didn't get the girl(Sadie) so im glad he gets his own story.
Marcus lost his chances with Sadie and he was heartbroken after that summer he went off to school but had to come back for family reasons.He meets Low and then everything chances,Marcus was still as sweet as ever and the rest of the characters i thought were well written. Preston, Dewayne, Rock and Trisha are some characters that helped with comic relief when thing got a bit to intense and i hope we get to see more of them in the next book.They seemed believable and genuine in the story. Low was a intense but sweet and innocent character who had Cage wrapped around her finger.Cage York was the opposite to Marcus.He was tough and grew up in a rough way. He was a good-hearted guy beneath the tough exterior and man whoreish ways.
The cover was lovely and the splash of red made the cover pop.Because of Low is a bittersweet kind of book and i adored it.I can't wait for the next book in the Sea Breeze series.4/5
