Because of Low by Abbi Glines (Quickie Book Review)

because of lowSummary from Goodreads

Set in the steamy coastal Alabama town of Sea Breeze, an interconnected group of older teens hook up, break up …and much, much more. 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 his home town of Sea Breeze due to a family crisis. The only bright spot to returning is the hot redhead who sleeps over at his place several times a week. There’s just one thing though – she’s sleeping in bed with his new roommate, Cage York. Willow “Low” Foster needs a place to live. Running to her best friend Cage’s apartment every time her sister kicks her out isn’t exactly a long term solution. But Cage has a new roommate and suddenly sleeping over at his apartment isn’t such a bad thing. Not when she gets to see those sexy green eyes of Marcus’s twinkle when he smiles at her like he wants her there. There’s one problem though, Cage is under the disillusion that when he’s through sowing his wild oats, he’s going to marry Low – an assumption Marcus intends to change. But when his carefully laid plans come crashing down with a revelation he never expected, Marcus will have to choose between Low or his family. Because once the truth comes out …there’s no other choice.

Quickie Review

After a bit of a reading slump…*yawn* I picked this up hoping that Abbi Glines’ epically steamy males would hook me back into the reading world. Marcus Hardy certainly done that and Willow (Low) was down-to-earth and just lovely.

Abbi’s writing as usual was effortlessly addictive and she really does nothing better than a love struck stubborn guy and broken hard as nails gal! The chemistry was electric and it sizzled right off the page with each encounter. I also really enjoyed this group of guys here in Sea Breeze, they seem really intertesting and there are a few I can’t wait to get to know better 😉

There are a lot of complex little family beads and relationships that made up the backround of this story. There are highs, lows and edge-of-your-seat shockers! I hadn’t even read the first book in this series but everything was explained and I wasn’t left wondering at anything.

All in all I think this is another little beauty from Abbi Glines and I really don’t think I’ll ever get board of her sassy stories!

4/5 Stars!
