While it Lasts by Abbi Glines Book Review

Set in the steamy coastal Alabama town of Sea Breeze, an interconnected group of older teens hook up, break up . . . and much, much more. Cage York has a free ride to college for baseball - or he did, until he got in trouble for drink-driving. Now he has to give in to his coach's demands and spend his summer baling hay. 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.

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 neighbour, had been the centre 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. Now she has to deal with the arrogant Cage York and his irritating smile.

But as the summer bailing hay rolls by, Cage and Eva learn that what they want (and need) may be something they never saw coming. (goodreads summary)

My rating: 4 star
My Review
As many of you know, I have been making my way through the Sea Breeze Novels. After Because of Low, I fell in love with Cage. What kind of man was he, why did he love Low so much? I couldn't wait to tear into this book. Unfortunately, this book fell below my expectations. Cage York is a sexy and interesting character, but we don't get to explore his past or what makes him- him. Eva. Well she is confusing and poor girl really needs to stop feeling sorry for herself. I just didn't like them as a couple. I guess because I was always rooting for Cage and Low in the back of my mind. But the book was still good! I give it four stars because I love Abbi and her character so much.
