While It Last

Title: While It Last
Author.Abbi Glines

Maybe driving home after a few (or more) shots of tequila had been a bad idea, but hell, he did it all the time. The cops had to have been freaking bored to have pulled him over. He wasn’t even swerving! That’s Cage York’s story and he’s sticking to it.

Unfortunately, his baseball coach isn’t buying it. Cage has a free ride to the local junior college for baseball -- or he did, until he’d gotten a DUI. Now, Cage has to decide: does he drop out and give up his dream of getting noticed by a college in the SEC, and possibly making it into the Major Leagues -- or does he give in to his coach’s demands and spend his summer baling hay?

Eva Brooks planned out her life step by step when she was eight years old. Not once over the years had she lost sight of her goals. Josh Beasley, her next door neighbor, had been the center of those goals. He’d been her first boyfriend at seven, her first kiss at ten, her first date at fifteen, and her first tragedy at eighteen. The moment she’d received the phone call from Josh’s mother saying he’d been killed along with four other soldiers just north of Baghdad, Eva’s carefully planned life imploded in the worst way possible.

Cage isn’t real happy with his closet-sized bedroom in the back of a foul smelling barn, or his daily interactions with cows, but he knows that if he doesn’t make his coach happy then he can kiss his scholarship goodbye. Only a sick and twisted man would decide his punishment was to be working on a farm all summer. No hot babes in bikinis waiting to meet a Southern boy to make her vacation complete. Just him and the damned cows.

Oh -- and an uptight, snarky brunette with the biggest blue eyes he’s every seen. But she doesn’t count, because as hard as he’s tried to charm her out of her panties - he’s pretty sure she’d rather see him hung from the rafters than let him get a taste of her pretty little lips

So ever since reading Breathe and the Vincent Boy series  I've become hooked on Abbi Glines books.

Breathe was a heart warming  tale about Sadie and Jackson,Because of Low was heartbreaking story about Marcus and Willow with some twist and turns,and While It Lasts is an intense story about Cage and Eva. 

Cage York who's described as a sexy bad boy and Eva who's a sweet farm girl who is dealing with a lot emotionally. In Because of Low Cage was introduced as this womanizing man whore with a protective streak when it came to Low. In While it Lasts we learn that Cage York is more then a man whore with a big dose of bad boy edge he is loyal,caring, and deep down has a heart of gold for his loved ones

While it Lasts takes place not to long after Because of Low;Cage has recently received a DUI and is helping out at a farm that belongs to a friend of his coach. While down on the farm he meets the farmers hot daughter Eva who instantly takes a dislike to Cage. Eva has been though a lot because of the lose of her finace and Cage York seems like the last guy she'd ever consider being with.Despite the fact that they both have loads of emotinal baggage this odd pair balances each other out for the better.The charecter are well written and we get a glimpse of the Jax and Sadie and(My Faves) Willow and Marcus.

The cover gives that country feel of someone looking out onto the farm.It ties in to the story perfectly you can just imagine Cage sweaty just waiting for Eva and her lemonade after working hard in the sun. This book is a little more racy then the previous books but fans of Abbie Glines and new readers will definitely enjoy this book.I would recommend this book to anyone but it's better suited for a older teen audience 17 or up.Also despite the fact that all of Albi Glines books in the Sea Breeze series seem to all follow the same cheesy and sometime cliche formula I can't get enough of them.3/5
