In my debut novel, Breathe, Sadie may have fallen in love with the teen rock star, Jax Stone, but readers fell head over heels for Marcus Hardy. This is his story…
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.
Sweet, Sexy and engrossing! I loved Low. I thought she was portrayed as real girl with real problems. It was nice that it was her character and moral that had the boy’s so fascinated. Not just her pretty face and drop dead good looks.
I like to think of Abbi Glines writing style as the “Goldilocks” effect. Not so little information that I’m left hanging and confused and not so much that I’m drowning in information and groaning when it’s gonna be over. Actually, for me her writing style doles out just enough that I can’t wait to read more and desperate to finish in one sitting.
Marcus is finger licking good. I think he could be the poster boy for KFC. I never read the 1st Sea Breeze book but boy that Jax must be VERY hot to get one over on Marcus. The chemistry between Low and Marcus is girly giggle moments and lots of sighing.
Mrs. Glines kept the story real and down to earth. No crazy moments necessary, as in serial killers chasing the girl or such drama, everything that went on was between the two main characters and there issues. You read about their backgrounds to get the jist of them and you understood where they were coming from and who they were.
Yep I loved it and I’ll be reading the 1st Sea Breeze of course.
