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.
I didn't agree with the story line that well. I feel like it was kind of justifying cheating. If they both claimed to have loved him they wouldn't have done him like that. She could have broken up with her boyfriend/his cousin first! The sex scenes are also a little over done. I know a lot of new adult books have very descriptive and racy scenes, but some of the writing could have been improved in this book.
Most interesting- How they are aware and oblivious at the same time that they are both in love with eachotherLeast interesting- As mentioned above. They did him so wrong
hmmm. I don't know. Based on the book, maybe not.
All in all, it wasn't a horrible read, but it wasn't her best either! If you're looking for a book to pass the time that has some wit, you can give it a try!
