Happy INDIEpendence Day!

Happy Monday! I am so excited to be part of the firsst annual INDIEpendence Day Blog Fest celebrating small press and indie authors.

Today I thought I would scream my praises for The Vincent Boys by Abbi Glines. I discovered this book through one of my favorite groups on Goodreads, Never Too Old for YA Books. Man oh man, what an amazing discovery.

Here's the amazon blurb:
Being the good girl isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Ashton Gray has grown weary of playing the part to please her parents, and to be worthy of the town’s prince charming, Sawyer Vincent. Maybe That’s why she’s found herself spending time with Sawyer’s cousin, Beau, while he’s away for the summer camping with his family. Beau is nothing like her perfect boyfriend. He’s the sexiest guy she’s ever seen, dangerous in ways she’s only day dreamed about, and the one guy she should stay away from.
Beau never envied Sawyer his loving parents, his big nice home, or his position as quarterback. He loves him like a brother. Which is why he's tried everything in his power to keep his distance from Sawyer’s girlfriend. Even if he has loved her since the age of five, Ashton is Sawyer’s girl, so therefore she’s off limits. But when Sawyer leaves for the summer, Ashton, the one girl Beau would move Heaven and Earth for, decides she wants to get into trouble. Stabbing the one person who’s always accepted him and stood by him in the back, is the cost of finally holding Ashton Gray in his arms. Is she worth losing his cousin over?.... Hell Yeah.

My take:
I LOVED LOVED LOVED this book. Sexy, Hot, Fun - it was a perfect summer read for me. Abbi did a great job with the characters, plot development, and pacing. I was hooked from the first page and breezed through it.

But don't take my word for it...go and check out the book for yourself. I haven't read the sequel, THE VINCENT BROTHERS, yet. But you can bet I will!

Now that I've sung my praises, check out what the other Blog Fest peeps are talking about:

  6. I was wondering whether you would be happy to put up a link in my monthly series called “Books You Love”. The idea is for people to link up posts about a book they loved. It could be an old fave. I am hoping we will end up with a nice collection of books that can go on our reading lists. Here is the link Books You Loved July Edition
