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....

I loved the flashbacks of Ash, Bo, and Sawyer's childhoods and the development of their relationships.
My favorite character was Bo. I just love a bad boy!
The female narration was too slow and she really sounded as if she was bored. I really enjoyed the male narration, particularly his accent.
I certainly could not stop listening and wanted to listen to it all in one sitting. Unfortunately I couldn't.
I'm married with one daughter, just finished my BS in Health Science, and I'm a choosy fiction/romance/paranormal/anything spellbinding listener during my commute.
I couldn't begin to count the number of stories that involve a preacher's daughter and the "town bad-boy"- I'm glad that the cliché didn't make me ignore this book.
As usual with a story where cheating occurs, anyone especially bothering by infidelity may not want to read this book. Since I've never encountered it in my own life, I haven't formed any of the painful memories that might make it difficult for others to read this book.
The shining light in this story was the passion these characters displayed- It was refreshing and addicting, and definitely not for the faint of heart. I liked how free these teens were (except that their freedom allowed unfaithfulness), and I felt this this author has a lot of potential. I hope that she avoids cliché phrases in the future, but otherwise I found this book to be highly entertaining and I look forward to reading the next book in the series.
Perhaps too steamy for some teens, but great entertainment for those more mature. The narration by Kirby Heyborne captures the essence of Bo. Shayna Thibodeaux is also very convincing as Ash.
A successful novel makes the reader want more, and by presenting characters larger than life, Abbi Glines succeeds beautifully. Would love to see more of her work.
Story is sweet and well written but too young (16-17 year olds). If this was set with even college age it wouldn't seem so off. I think for the depth of the feelings for these characters it didn't match their age.
Not a surprise. Slow, sweet ending just like the start.
I really enjoyed the differences in the voices. However, again they sounded way to old for the age of the characters.
No laughs or cries just as "awe isn't that sweet" feeling.
Ok, I really don't know what to say about Abbi's books anymore, I love them all. They're all beautiful stories and th hey make me cry, smile and laugh. This is a good book, now to listen to the next one.
I AM NEWLY ADDICTED TO AUDIO-BOOKS. I GOT THIS ACCOUNT LAST YEAR AND ALREADY HAVE 93 BOOKS IN MY LIBRARY. IT'S AWESOME...
THIS IS THE BESTEST YA SERIES I HAVE READ YET!!! I LOVE THE NARRATOR KIRBY. HE WAS GREAT IN THE BEAUTIFUL BASTARD SREIES AS WELL. I LOVE THE SOUTHERN DRAW ACCENT THAT IS USED IN ALL HIS NARRATIONS.....I'M ON TO BECAUSE OF LOW NOW... I HOPE THIS IS JUST AS GOOD...CAN'T WAIT.
I would definitely recommend this to a friend! as a friend did for me! it was a greatstory. never dull. I was interested right away.
they were all fabulous! but if I had to pick I would say Bo.
No. I like reading them first and then listening. I want to get a feel for the characters on my own before some other voice gets stuck in my head.
I loved when he showed up at the church for Ash during her granas funeral. He knew how much getting closure would mean to her and he didn't care about the gossip that would follow.
Not very good. I think Shayna Thibodeaux had a nice voice but she seem too slow delivering the words. I did not like Kirby Heyborne voice for Beau at all. When I picture Beau in my head he's a stong alpha male all the way. His voice needed to be stong, husky, and arrogant. To me Kirby Heyborne voice was too soft and slow.
Nope I loved evey moment between Beau and Ash. I did like when Beau and Sawyer were in the locker room and Beau said when your ready I'll be here.
For as much as I read and listen you would think by now that I would know how to spell lol. I read at least 5 books a week there are times I have gotten up to 10 in a week.
yes I would, because when it was good it was good. Minus the hero calling women's breast tits (ggggrrrr) (pet peeve of mine I would rather them be called boobs!) and Kirby Heyborne performance.
Shayna'a was awesome.....Kirby however OMG the guys in this book are not 13 they have already went threw the change so whats with the preteen prechange high pitched voice? And the way he sounds when he does the female's voice.....seriously I was screaming SHUT UP! One ( Shayna) narrator would of been fine. She did the male voices better then the male narrator.
It already has one.....not sure why this was a question.
If they would just stop using Kirby to narrate and get rid of the word tits. My ratting would of been higher. The story line was really good but for that one dreaded word. And listening to Shayna's performance was awesome. I wish she would of done the whole book.
