The Vincent Boys blog tour: Review + Giveaway

Juhina & Farah are happy to announce their first ever participation in a blog tour. Today The Vincent Boys blog tour stops here for a review and a giveaway of the book for all you people to get into the fun and scandalous world of the vincent boys ;) 



Title: The Vincent Boys
Author: Abbi Glines
Publication date: October, 21, 2011
Genre(s): Young Adult (Contemporary)
Pages: 238


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.


The Vincent Boys is a novel about a girl’s dilemma of being true to herself or keeping up the fa├žade of the perfect girl to keep up with people’s expectations. When Sawyer, Ashton’s boyfriend, leaves for a while during the summer, Ashton can’t help herself but get closer to Beau, who is both Sawyer’s cousin and Ashton’s childhood best friend. The only problem is that desire gets in the way, and their get together aren’t as innocent as people think. I loved Beau’s character, he always stayed true to himself, never caring what the people in town thought about him, even though he’s labeled as the bad boy in town. It's just that people don’t know about his past. This book will shock you with revelations towards the end that’ll keep your mouth hanging open!

The only problem I had was with Ashton, even though she clearly has feelings for Beau, and feels like she can drop her 'perfect' disguise with him, she already made up her mind that what they have is ticking away and will end when Sawyer arrives. I didn’t appreciate how she kept holding on to that perfect image she built up for herself to please everyone, but I’m glad towards the end she finally makes decisions; decisions because of herself, and not because of the rest of the town.

This book is full of scandals, surprises, and screaming sessions; however I must point out that this is for older teens due to some explicit scenes in the book. The Vincent Boys by Abbi Glines was a fun and breezy read. I did get one thing out of the book and it’s that you should always stay true to yourself, and whoever doesn’t accept that doesn’t deserve to be with you.


Rating: 3.5 - A great tune, keep listening!
