BOOK PROMO & REVIEW: Sea Breeze Series by Abbi Glines



Breath #1

 

Synopsis

Sadie White’s summer job isn’t going to be on the beach life-guarding or working at rental booths like most kids her age. With her single mother’s increasing pregnancy and refusal to work, Sadie has to take over her mother’s job as a domestic servant for one of the wealthy summer families on a nearby island.
When the family arrives at their summer getaway, Sadie is surprised to learn that the owner of the house is Jax Stone, one of the hottest teen rockers in the world. If Sadie hadn’t spent her life raising her mother and taking care of the house she might have been normal enough to be excited about working for a rock star.
Even though Sadie isn’t impressed by Jax’s fame, he is drawn to her. Everything about Sadie fascinates Jax but he fights his attraction. Relationship’s never work in his world and as badly as he wants Sadie, he believes she deserves more.
By the end of the summer, Jax discovers he can’t breathe

Because Of Low #2

 

Synopsis

Marcus Hardy had hoped to enjoy a year away at college while he put the summer he’d rather forget behind him. But instead, he’s jerked right back to the coastal town of Sea Breeze, Alabama due to a family crisis. His dear ol’ dad found himself a girlfriend only a few years older than Marcus. So now his sister needs help dealing with their mother who is mentally falling apart. The only bright spot to returning is the fascinating red head who sleeps over several times a week. The problem is she’s sleeping in bed with his new roommate, Cage York.
Willow “Low” Foster needs a place to live. Running to Cage’s apartment every time her sister kicks her out isn’t exactly a long term solution. Juggling her courses at the local community college and a part time job doesn’t produce excess income. But Cage has a new roommate and suddenly sleeping over at her best friend’s apartment isn’t such a bad thing. Not when she gets to see those sexy green eyes of Marcus Hardy’s twinkle when he smiles at her like he wants her there.
Even though Cage seems a little territorial where Low is concerned, Marcus finds time to spend with Low without upsetting his roommate. Cage may use his small college baseball star persona to sleep with every hot female in his path but he’s still under the disillusion that when he’s through sowing his wild oats, he’s going to marry Low. Marcus intends to change that assumption for both Cage and Low. Until his carefully laid plans come crashing down with a revelation he never expected. He’ll have to choose between Low or his family. Because once the truth comes out…. there’s no other choice.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Alpha Male alert that is Marcus Hardy and also from Cage York.....All because of one woman Willow "Low' Foster.

This book was funny & had some shock factors also. I loved that there were so many twists in this story and how possessive that Marcus & Cage were towards to Low, I have to say that Low was sometimes annoyingly understanding and then Cage man did I want to punch him at times. This book was great read and you can't help but fall in love with the perfect guy that is Marcus Hardy.

Fantastic read, Loved It!

Cage York I'll see you in While It Lasts!

While It Lasts #3


Synopsis

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 ever 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.

5 Drool Worthy Stars

Cage York......Enough Said!

There is a reason why this was chosen to be made into a movie. Cage is charming, sexy & I sure wouldn't mind having a sexy cowboy helper AKA Cage York ;-)

Once again this book was written really well and the sexual tension between the Eva & Cage was sexy HOT! Of course these books can all be read as standalone but I recommend reading in order like that you get to know all the characters of the "gang" and makes each book even more enjoyable because you know the characters and LOVE the book even more!

Abbi Glines You ROCK

 Just For Now #4


 


Synopsis

Preston is one bad boy. And Amanda has harbored a crush on him for forever. When she finally makes her move on him, it does not end well. But still, she can’t resist him. Especially now that he seems to be pursuing her, too.
No one wants them to be together. Not Amanda’s brother Marcus, who is on the verge of his marriage to Low, and definitely not any of Preston’s buddies. They know way too much about Preston’s dark side. Yet the dangerous attraction is there…and neither Preston nor Amanda are going to deny it.
For Preston, his part in Breathe is as Marcus Hardy’s best friend. He shows up and is comic relief mostly.
In Because of Low, he is on Cage York’s baseball team as well as a fixture in Marcus’s life.
In While It Lasts, he only makes a few brief appearances. One of those is with Amanda and the hint as to what is coming next is very strong.
I’ve known Preston wasn’t exactly what he appeared to be since his first appearance in Breathe. I knew he had secrets but I wasn’t sure if I’d ever delve into his life. After Because of Low I knew just who was going to make him want to change and exactly how severe his issues were. I had no doubt that after I told bad boy Cage York’s story that I’d have to tell readers about Preston next. He is quite possibly the deepest character to date for me. Weird, I know, considering he has always been portrayed as the playboy. Looks can be deceiving and for Preston Drake that is exactly the case.

After waiting for his big break, bad boy Cage York is finally called up to prove his worth in the college baseball arena. But when Cage’s girlfriend, Eva, mourns the sudden loss of her father, it’s not Cage’s comforting arms she runs to, but those of her former fiancé’s twin brother, Jeremy.

5 Thank You Abbi Glines Stars

When I heard Cage York was getting a second book I may or may have not squealed, just saying.

Cage & Eva their story is amazing, from While It Lasts to Sometimes It Lasts so much happens and in this book I felt it all, from anger to sadness to also seeing the loyalty of true friendship.

I love that we do go back to where it all started and where they fell in love on Eva's farm.
This story is different and you get to another side of Cage which for me made me fall in love with him all over again.

Abbi Glines is amazing no matter what anybody says, her books rule!

Blythe Denton is used to being alone. The minister’s family who raised her never accepted her as their own, and the cruel minister’s wife made sure Blythe understood just how unworthy she was of love.

Krit Corbin is Bad For You, but in an oh so good way!!!

Was ecstatic when I read this, because I love all of the books in the Sea Breeze Series but once I got a glimpse of Krit in earlier books I had to know his story and what a story it was!

Abbi you are a master of writing these series where the all the characters appear and flow throughout each book and I love that you can do it in a way that gets you hooked every single time.

I'm now more in love with Krit than when I started this book.

Fantastic!

Hold On Tight #8

 

  Synopsis

 Dewayne Falco has been a fixture in Sea Breeze since his appearance in the very first book, Breathe. He always had the one-liners and smart remarks that made you laugh. But there was never any insight into his life. Other than being best friends with Marcus, Preston, and Rock all his life, you knew little else. Until now. In Hold on Tight, Dewayne’s past pain is brought front and center while he realizes not all was lost—and that there may be hope for him yet.

5 Fighting Stars

Ok so I'm going to sound like a broken record and say I loved this book too.....BUT I have to say that so far in all honesty this is my favorite book in the series atm!

There were so many emotions in this book while I was reading and actually had a tear or two, I had a few laughs and the sexual tension and chemistry between Dwayne & Sienna was fantastic & Micah, well Micah what a adorable kid you will instantly fall in love with this little boy. He was funny and really brought this book together I think, as much as it was about Dwayne and Sienna I think the book wouldn't have been the same if it didn't have the added Micah effect to it!!

Until the End #9

 


 Synopsis

The backstory that fans have been clamoring for—how Rock and Trisha fell in love—is the final installment in the Sea Breeze series from New York Times bestselling author Abbi Glines. And don’t miss the sizzling epilogue, where Abbi wraps up all the Sea Breeze couples’ stories!
Trisha Corbin always knew how to hide a bruise. With her momma’s boyfriends unable to keep their hands off of her, she had no choice. And as long as it meant the guys wouldn’t go near her little brother, Krit, it was worth it. But her days of dreaming that Prince Charming would ever come rescue her are far, far in the past.
Rock Taylor always had a plan. Through football, he would rise above the life he was born into. A full ride to play for a major college team was within his reach—assuming he didn’t let anything get in his way. But scoring a date with the hottest girl in Sea Breeze was proving harder than expected. Trisha Corbin was every man’s walking fantasy, and she wouldn’t even glance his way.
When Rock finally does get Trisha in his truck, it isn’t for a date. It’s because he picks her up on the side of the road, beaten and bruised and walking to the local hospital. Before Rock knows it, football is no longer his life. Trisha Corbin is. And he’ll do anything to save her. And keep her.
In addition to Rock and Trisha’s love story, this special conclusion to the Sea Breeze series contains the wrap-up stories of all your favorite Sea Breeze couples: Sadie and Jax, Marcus and Low, Cage and Eva, Preston and Amanda, Jess and Jason, Krit and Blythe, and Dewayne and Sienna. The steamy romance won’t stop until the very last page!

5 I Can't Believe This Is the END Stars

Until The End, that's it, no more, LAST EVER!!!

I always wondered why Abbi left Trisha & Rock's story for last, but after reading it I get it.

Trisha Corbin's life was far from what a normal teenager would have. Her life was a hard one at that. Protecting her brother was all that mattered for her.

But then her Prince Charming in the form of Rock Taylor comes to her rescue one time and that's when her life is about to change, for the better!

Reading Until The End was sad in many ways, but mainly too because because this is the last book in the Sea Breeze Series.
At the end you gets chapters on all everyone from the Sea Breeze gang with updates on their lives and how far they have come. Was beautifully done and as sad as it is that it has come to an end, I know Abbi is working on something just as amazing for us to fall in love with all over again.

Also if those "two words" on the last page mean anything (which I hope they do) There will be great things happening!

Abbi Glines no matter what anyone says your work ROCKS. Brilliant just BRILLIANT.

5 Perfectly Seamless Stars (Sea Breeze Series Overall)

This is a review for the complete Sea Breeze Series including Breathe, Because of Low, While It Lasts, Just For Now, Sometimes It Lasts, Misbehaving, Bad For You, Hold On Tight, Until The End.
I have finally finished reading this fabulous Sea Breeze Series by Abbi Glines and I was amazed at how much I was drawn into this series. 

Firstly – Wow - What a beautiful story Until The End Is and what a fabulous way to finish a series.

I have to say that Abbi Glines really has a way with drawing you in and leaving you with a pounding heart wanting more.  This series was again, just perfectly inviting and irresistible.  

In the last book of the series, we get to see Trisha & Rock’s story as well as all our favourite couples from the entire series.

Again, I found all her characters are so well developed and essential to each storyline.  Her writing style is seamless and so easy to read.  She really has a talent for portraying a beautiful story full of everything.  

It’s so easy to fall in love with these characters and their story.  I was hooked right from the beginning of this series.

If you are looking for a book or series to fall in love with and take your imagination onto a journey full of surprise, laughter, sadness, drama, anger and more – then this is something you should definitely lose yourself in.

Flawlessly complete, brilliantly perfect.

Highly recommended.
