~REVIEW~ While It Lasts by Abbi Glines

While It Lasts (Sea Breeze, #3) Synopsis

Cage brings his playboy prowess to the countryside as the Sea Breeze hookups continue, from self-published phenomenon Abbi Glines.

Low broke Cage’s heart by getting with Marcus in Because of Low. Cage went into a tailspin that ended in a DUI. In order to salvage his baseball scholarship—the one thing he truly valued besides Low—Cage must take a summer job. At a farm. Away from Sea Breeze. With lots of cows, but no hot girls. Maybe that’s what Cage needs to get back on track.

But wait—there’s that hostile daughter of the farm boss. She’s pretty and occasionally sweet, and there seems to be a lot of sadness and mystery behind her anger. Cage is dying to strip her down—physically and mentally—in the back of the barn. But is he prepared for what will happen afterward?


“I'd worried that letting her get too close would break me. Unfortunately, I'd worried about that a little too late. Because I was broken. The Cage I was before Eva no longer existed. As much as I didn't want to admit it, I'd fallen in love with her. I'd allowed someone in and she hadn't want me. I hadn't been good enough. I never was.” 
Hands down Abbi Glines is the Queen of hot boy, feisty girls, sexy scenes and DRAMA!! While it Lasts upped the ante on all the above! 

 In the 4th book of the Sea Breeze series we are rewarded with getting Cage’s story. In Because of Low we meet him as Low’s best friend who was a grade A player. Cage did what he wanted when he wanted. He used women for pleasure and then discarded them. In While It Lasts we realize that, like all bad boys, under that playboy exterior there is a wonderful interior. 

After being sent to the country in order to save his baseball scholarship Cage has to come to terms with a town where he can’t party and drink and won’t have women thrown around for his pleasure. When his new boss’s daughter belittles him is shocked that his charm doesn’t work on her. Especially because to Cage she is the hottest girl he’s seen. Determined on not letting her upset him, Cage sets about to ignore her but realizes quickly that Eve is not easily ignored. The angry and feisty girl’s personality appeals to everything he is. What he quickly learns is that Eve has a reason to be angry. 

Eve is dealt a really sad life when he fiance, Josh, is taken from her. She is bitter and angry at life in general. So when Cage shows up at her father’s farm she is angry with his presence. A man that doesn’t care about anyone but himself is a pity. So she ignores him and just continues grieving. 

What both don’t expect is for their mutual dislike for each other to stir something more. A desire to help each other heal and be better versions on themselves. While Cage helps Eve move on he finds that she makes him want to be a better person. But Eve is worried about Cage's reputation and everyone that knows him doesn't make her feel any better about him. She can’t let go of her Josh, not when he was the perfect man. 

These two are wonderful people and I could not help but be giddy that they finally ended up together! I can’t wait to read more about them in Sometimes it Lasts, and see what happens with their future. We were also to check in with the former characters and loved seeing a glimpse into their life. 

Don’t miss Cage and Eve's story! Also pick up the previous ones!!
