The Vincent boys
Yesterday I was looking true the site goodreads and I saw that this e-book was free at amazon And I like it when you can read something for free. So I started immediately with this book. And its such a sweet story when you normaly read fantasy books.
Genre: YA, Realistic Fiction, Romance
Rating: 3 - 3,5
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.
Ashton, Beau and Sawyer have always been friends, from childhood 'till now. Beau and Sawyer are cousins and when Beau's father dies they become even closer, more like brothers. Beau and Ashton always did crazy things, like trowing water balloons or hanging out on the roof and looking at the stars. But when they grew older, and both Ashton and Sawyer got into a relationship, they didn't hear anything from each other anymore. Until now.
Sawyer is enjoying his Summer vacation with his family. After a party, Beau and his girlfriend Nicole had too much to drink, so Ashton drives them home. When Nicole is at her house, Ashton and Beau talk with each other and decide to renew their friendship. Ashton also decides that she doesn't want to be a good girl anymore and wants Beau to help her. When Beau calls her to go swimming at the lake, she says yes. When they are at the lake they find out that there is a chemistry between them. But both of them don't want to go there because of Sawyer. But you know how it is with love...
When Ashtons Grandma dies she runs to Beau and despite that they do not want to hurt Sawyer, they really get too close with each other. Beau loves her but only wants to comfort her. But he isn't perfect and neither is Ashton so you can figure out for your self what happened...
Then, before the funeral, Sawyer comes back. And because Beau and Ashton don't want to hurt him they quit seeing each other. But Sawyer isn't blind and a few days after the funeral he finds out about Beau and Ashton. I felt soo sorry for him. But Beau is sooo much better for her, and he knows everything about her. He knows the real Ashton.
Of course the boys get in a fight in the bar of Beau's mother. Because they won't stop, Beau's mother tells them a secret about the two of them. They end the fight and Sawyer goes home.
The next day Ashton and Sawyer see each other at school. But that's not all... The whole school hates Ashton because of what she has done to Sawyer. And the worst thing...Beau is gone! After school, Ashton visits Beau's mother to ask her if she knows where he is. But she tells her that he has a lot to think about and she doesn't know where he is en when he is coming back. Every day after school Ashton goes to the bar, leaves messages for Beau and talks with his mother.
A week later Beau is back. But he is not the same. He is really mad at Sawyer because of what everybody has done to Ashton and he gives him a concussion. It's sweet but it isn't nice of Beau. Ashton goes to Sawyer to see how he is doing and they have a talk. They decide to get back to being friends and Sawyer gives her his blessing to start a relationship with Beau.
Isn't it fantastic?!! Boys fight and become friends again all the time, but when it comes to girls they would easily never again speak to each other. I am so happy for all 3 of them. But mostly, for Beau and Ashton of course :D
