The Vincent Boys is yet another contemporary young adult book that I devoured from start to finish in just a few hours! I feel like this book went by almost too fast and that I would have liked more. It was a really fun yet deep read and the story was really easy to get lost in. I've had my eye on this book for a while when I finally got a copy, I started reading it the second it arrived in my Kindle! It definitely did not let me down.
This book follows Ashton Gray at a very drama-filled time in her life. Her boyfriend Sawyer is out of town and she ends up getting close to his cousin, Beau. Sawyer and Beau could not be more different from each other if they tried. I loved the contrast between the two guys- Sawyer is a seemingly perfect boy who never puts a foot wrong and Beau is your typical bad boy. It was interesting getting to know more about them and watch Ashton try to figure out how she felt about the both of them.
Ashton herself is a brilliant character! She's a bit lost and still trying to figure out who she wants to be which isn't easy when people are expecting so much from her. I thought she was a fun and sweet girl with a bit of wild side. Sometimes her indecisiveness got on my nerves but for the most part I found her to be pretty likeable. She does grow as a character as the book goes on and she learns from her past.
This book was filled with tension and conflict. There certainly isn't a dull moment when the Vincent boys are around- especially Beau! There were some typos that I could have done without but it was mostly a pleasure to read. I can't wait to read book two and I'm also really excited to check out the author's other books!
