Book Review: The Vincent Boys

Being the good girl isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Ashton Gray has grown weary of playing the part to please her parents, and to be worthy of the town’s prince charming, Sawyer Vincent. Maybe That’s why she’s found herself spending time with Sawyer’s cousin, Beau, while he’s away for the summer camping with his family. Beau is nothing like her perfect boyfriend. He’s the sexiest guy she’s ever seen, dangerous in ways she’s only day dreamed about, and the one guy she should stay away from.

Beau never envied Sawyer his loving parents, his big nice home, or his position as quarterback. He loves him like a brother. Which is why he's tried everything in his power to keep his distance from Sawyer’s girlfriend. Even if he has loved her since the age of five, Ashton is Sawyer’s girl, so therefore she’s off limits. But when Sawyer leaves for the summer, Ashton, the one girl Beau would move Heaven and Earth for, decides she wants to get into trouble. Stabbing the one person who’s always accepted him and stood by him in the back, is the cost of finally holding Ashton Gray in his arms. Is she worth losing his cousin over? Hell Yeah.



Goodreads: 3.5/5 stars

My review:

I wasn’t sure what to expect before reading this book, but it was a quick, light read. Great for summer, too.

Ashton, Sawyer, and Beau were best friends as children. Ash and Beau were as thick as thieves, and Sawyer covered for both of them. Fast forward to high school. Ashton is dating Sawyer, and Beau is the town’s bad boy. But when Sawyer is away on a camping trip, Beau and Ashton resort to being as bad as they once were. Both realize what they’ve been missing, but Ashton is afraid if she chooses Beau over Sawyer, it’ll ruin Beau and Sawyer’s relationship. Beau is worried about his relationship with Sawyer, too, but he’s more concerned about whether he’ll ever feel Ashton in his arms again. So, which Vincent boy will Ashton choose?

Overall, I was distracted by the number of grammar/punctuation errors, but I overlooked these problems and focused on the story. It was definitely entertaining, and there were some great characters, so if you’re looking for a contemporary romance, especially for summer reading, then read this book.

Because this book is independently published, you can also see my review at Dark Horse Indie Books. :)
