While It Lasts by Abbi Glines
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Yet again Abbi Glines has managed to bring out an incredible novel full of love, forgiveness, acceptance and humor. I loved this book so much! It was probably one of the best Sea Breeze novels. There were a few things, though… such as rather graphic sex scenes. While It Lasts is probably more of a New Adult novel, than a Young Adult novel. But, pfft, I loved it anyway.
Cage York finally gets his story! After a particularly wild night, Cage finds himself being pulled over by the police. He gets a DUI and is sent off to work on a farm. For Cage, this is horrible. He’ll be away from his friends, Low, girls and bars. Then, on his first day at the farm, he meets beautiful Eva. Beautiful, unavailable Eva. But, will he be able to worm his way into her life? Will Cage York finally fall in love?
Seeing a guy like Cage York on her porch is awful for Eva. She hates seeing people like him. Stuck-up drunks. Besides, she’s still nursing a broken heart after Josh. But, will Eva learn to like Cage? And will she finally be able to love again…?
This really was quite a nice story, with alternating POV’s so we could feel Eva’s heartbreak and Cage’s frustration. The characters were well developed. Obviously, we had seen Cage before in Because of Low, so we knew his background, but we got to learn all about Eva and her past. Eva was kind, thoughtful and very sad, heartbroken. Both characters were amazing and I loved them equally. Cage was actually kinda nice… after a while.
Overall the story line was good. It was planned and well thought-out. Abbi Glines really has a talent for writing romance novels. The chemistry between Eva and Cage was automatic, steamy and realistic. The story wasn’t very realistic, but it was realistic enough, you know?
I loved While It Lasts and I cannot wait for Cage and Eva to get another story!
