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 on 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's isn't really 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.
One of the things that drawls me to Abbi Glines writing, is that she has this way of creating characters that you, as a reader, can relate to and the life situations that they have to deal with. Abbi has this talent of grabbing you and taking you along on the journeys that the characters are on. You feel their happiness, sadness, accomplishments, success, let downs, failures and most of all, you get a sense of who her characters are and why they are the way they are.
Going through some of the reviews for Abbi's books, I found several who said that Abbi writes all of her books the same way. The young virgin who falls for a bad boy and how she gives in and gives the boy her innocence. Perhaps that is true, but I have to say that I love those types of stories because they are raw, emotional and most of all, REAL! I relate to them in a way that I can't with any other type of books. Perhaps that's why Abbi is my favorite Author.
Enough about Abbi and her creative talent because I can go on and on about her, as you may already know.
I started While it Lasts with some hesitation about if I could fall for Cage York. I wasn't the biggest fan of his in Because of Low, so I tried to keep my hopes on average, just in case this was the book that I would be let down in.
Only Abbi can write a character that you can fall for, forgive them for their faults and have hope for their success. After reading about a quarter way through, I was behind Cage and rooting him on in his quest to get Eva.
I understood Eva and her self preservation and the way she held back to protect her self from falling for the bad boy, if that's what you would call it. Eva had had gone through so much at such a young age that most people go through a lifetime and never experience.
I gave this book ♥♥♥♥ out of ♥♥♥♥♥ on Goodreads. I would recommend this to readers who love New Adult, Romance and Contemporary.
