The Vincent Boys (The Vincent Boys, #1)

The Vincent Boys (The Vincent Boys, #1) - Abbi Glines I read The Vincent Boys for the Spring into Summer read along. I again, was last(or close too it) and as the other girls reviews started to pop up I got more and more nervous about reading it. Their reviews weren’t good; but I buckled down last night and read it in a sitting.Ashton, Beau and Sawyer were best friends since childhood. Then when Ash grew up both boys lusted after her … and Sawyer got her. It’s the summer before senior year and Sawyer is away with his family. Ash has no one so she tried to rekindle her old friendship with Beau. Obviously they do more than rekindling their friendship and by the time Sawyer returns they are head over heels for each other…The characters. I honestly didn’t care about any of them. I liked a few of them well enough but the attachment with them was zero. Ashton was just the stereotypical perfect preachers daughter who really has a bad side. It’s been done countless times so she didn’t surprise me. I did like Ashton though, even if I hated half of her choices. Beau I had a love/hate relationship with. From the first of the story I thought he was such an asshole but throughout the book I did like him at certain parts. He was just overall really aggressive for no reason and irritating. Sawyer was just boring. I mean seriously. Plus I really hated how at the end he stood by and watched Ash get tortured for a while. Not cool.The plot was extremely, extremely predictable. I knew what was going to happen before it happened. Well… except for that one thing at the end between the two boys. Yah… I didn’t see that coming at all. But the whole love triangle with childhood best friends-good boy has the girl-bad boy wants her. I knew it.Now, that being said this is a total guilty pleasure read. I did enough the story and it’s fast paced and predictable. I finished it in a few hours so it’s not a tough book to read. If you want something that’s fairly light and a “snack” style read between books, pick this up. The character development is not there but it’s easy to read and will keep you entertained for a few hours. I will be reading the second book.
