An unexpected affair leads to mind-blowing harmony in this Sea Breeze novel from New York Times bestselling author Abbi Glines.
Jason is sick of living in his rock star brother’s shadow. So when he ships off to Sea Breeze, Alabama, he’s looking for a much deserved escape and a chance to blow off some envious steam. Falling for the local bad girl was definitely not the plan. But as the new duo enjoys some naughty fun in the Alabama sun, Jason learns that even though Jax is the musician in the family, he’s not the only brother who can rock someone’s world.
While she behaves a bit unexpected at times, I would not consider her a "bad girl". Just like Low, Cage and Preston, she did not have the best upbringing. Her single mom works as a stripper, though I do not think Jess ever came anything short. She actually has a good relationship with her mom, it's more what other people think of the whole situation. Her entire life her mom has been saying to her that with her looks she can get any man that she wants, when in reality Jess pretty much was ready to settle down with the lowest of men.
After her on and off relationship of years finally really breaks, Jess might realise she can get better and deserves better. Though a brother of a rockstar was not what she was expecting. Jason is everything her ex-boyfriend is not. The attraction is obvious and they might even handle on that, but Jess knows it could never be more than a fling. She is somehow convinced Jason is out of her league, so she'll take what she get.
Now we have also seen Jason appearing in the previous books and he always made a good impression on me. He seemed like such a nice and proper guy, so I did not see his dirty side coming at all. The things that come out of that boy's mouth will make you blush. Like Jess he knows they can never want more than a fling. Though Jason just has no idea in general what he wants, besides not being a politician. So when things get more serious between them choices will need to be made and honestly both are dragging their legs about it.
Jess and Jason are probably one of the most unlikely couples, though really you can not sell them short. There is this other softer and caring side of Jess that I really liked. While Jason's confidence and dirty mouth were very fun to see in action. The overall plot line was not very original and there was actually less drama here than in the previous books. Still the characters totally made up for it.
Krit gets pushed more forward in this book and we get to read his story next week. I always thought he was a fun character, but also here we already get to know more about him. He's not just a sexy rockstar, he's also very caring and loyal. I wish it was next week already.
