Book Review: While It Lasts By Abbi Glines

Author: Abbi Glines
UK Publishers: Simon and Schuster
Summary: Maybe driving home after a few (or more) shots of tequila had been a bad idea, but hell, he did it all the time. The cops had to have been freaking bored to have pulled him over. He wasn’t even swerving! That’s Cage York’s story and he’s sticking to it.
Unfortunately, his baseball coach isn’t buying it. Cage has a free ride to the local junior college for baseball -- or he did, until he’d gotten a DUI. Now, Cage has to decide: does he drop out and give up his dream of getting noticed by a college in the SEC, and possibly making it into the Major Leagues -- or does he give in to his coach’s demands and spend his summer baling hay?

Eva Brooks planned out her life step by step when she was eight years old. Not once over the years had she lost sight of her goals. Josh Beasley, her next door neighbor, had been the center of those goals. He’d been her first boyfriend at seven, her first kiss at ten, her first date at fifteen, and her first tragedy at eighteen. The moment she’d received the phone call from Josh’s mother saying he’d been killed along with four other soldiers just north of Baghdad, Eva’s carefully planned life imploded in the worst way possible

Cage isn’t real happy with his closet-sized bedroom in the back of a foul smelling barn, or his daily interactions with cows, but he knows that if he doesn’t make his coach happy then he can kiss his scholarship goodbye. Only a sick and twisted man would decide his punishment was to be working on a farm all summer. No hot babes in bikinis waiting to meet a Southern boy to make her vacation complete. Just him and the damned cows.
Oh -- and an uptight, snarky brunette with the biggest blue eyes he’s every seen. But she doesn’t count, because as hard as he’s tried to charm her out of her panties - he’s pretty sure she’d rather see him hung from the rafters than let him get a taste of her pretty little lips

REVIEW: Wow wow wow. Again Abbi has blown me out the park with her epic novel! I mean I don't think I could ever get sick of her books! While it lasts is defiantly one my favourite new adult novels and let me tell you why;

Abbi captures romance so perfectly the slight touch or the slight kiss written in her novel makes you feel all sorts of emotions. She captures a lot of amazing things in her novels but this one in particular got to me! The whole bad boy, forbidden love and turmoil... Always makes an epic novel. It's the classic Romeo and Juliet scenario but with  sexier twists, sun, topless guys and one heck of a love scene.

I loved Cage as a character. His sexy humour and wit really made me enjoy reading him. He is nothing like Abbis other characters and I admire that about her because for me I always worry that an authors sequel or next book in general will have a different character but act the same as the others but I never need to worry about that with Abbi.

I loved Eva! Even though she is going through a horrible tragedy, for me I felt she was still such a strong person and you really empathise with her through Abbis writing it was really amazing to read her thoughts

Let me talk about the romance in this novel... Well HELLO there. Abbi can write the BEST sex scenes on the planet. E.L James needs to watch her back BIG TIME.

Epic novels, epic characters, epic scenes and an epic author! Buy these books guys!!!

I was attractive by the book cover. This sounds much more in depth than I was imagining it to be.
