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....
What did you love best about The Vincent Boys: Extended and Uncut?
I loved the flashbacks of Ash, Bo, and Sawyer's childhoods and the development of their relationships.
Who was your favorite character and why?
My favorite character was Bo. I just love a bad boy!
Did the narration match the pace of the story?
The female narration was too slow and she really sounded as if she was bored. I really enjoyed the male narration, particularly his accent.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I certainly could not stop listening and wanted to listen to it all in one sitting. Unfortunately I couldn't.
Any additional comments?

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.

If you could sum up The Vincent Boys: Extended and Uncut in three words, what would they be?
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.
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
Not a surprise. Slow, sweet ending just like the start.
What does Kirby Heyborne and Shayna Thibodeaux bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
I really enjoyed the differences in the voices. However, again they sounded way to old for the age of the characters.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
No laughs or cries just as "awe isn't that sweet" feeling.

Full of angst in true Abbi Glines style. Interesting story with outstanding narration. Glad there's a sequel.
Is there anything you would change about this book?
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.
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
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
If this book were a movie would you go see it?
hmmm. I don't know. Based on the book, maybe not.
Any additional comments?
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!
Glines didn't disappoint as usual. lived every minute if this book. characters were excellent. can't wait for the next one.
Would have like a better voice for Bo. Maybe a younger voice. I Recommend though.
amazing story, would recommend to anyone. total turn on. thrid time reading this beautiful book
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.
