Where I Got It: Chapters
Synopsis: 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 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 isn't real 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 every 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.

When Abbi isn’t locked away in her office typing away she is hauling her kids to and from their many social activities. You could say her second job is the Glines Kids personal chauffeur. It’s a rather illustrious job.

I read this book on August 12th 2013.

While It Lasts is hot! The hottest of them all (so far, of course). You're gonna want your own Cage!

I'm surprised how much I liked this book. I didn't think I would like it at all but I guess Cage started to grow on me. Cage and Eva started their relationship bumpy but then they started to be attracted to each other. I liked that Eva and Cage seemed perfect for each other and how Cage did anything for Eva to make her happy. I thought the ending of the book was really sweet and it was nice that he remembered Eva's wish. 

I found that the flaw in this story was, when they were at the lake together, they hardly knew each other. I also found it quite strange that, even though Eva was engaged, that she never had sex with Josh. She also calls herself "extremely inexperienced" when she was with Cage. After reading the book I didn't believe that statement to much. 

I was expecting a little more from this book but I definitely think that the Sea Breeze series should get some praise but I disliked how in the second and third book, they were about people who liked the woman in the novel before it. I'm glad to see this trend ending.
I recommend this series to readers of Abbi Glines or readers searching for a contemporary romance.
