Breathe
Because of Low
While it Lasts
Untitled (coming in 2012)
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.

Review:

     I just loved this book. It is one of the steamiest in this series. I can't believe this book is written by the same author who wrote The Vincent Boys (which I didn't like one bit). It seems like Sea Breeze series gets better with each book.

     While it Lasts is Cage's & Eva's story. Remember Cage, the biggest man-whore from Because of Low. Well, in this book we get to see a sweet side of him. Shocker, right. I never thought I would like him more than Marcus, but Ms. Glines had made the impossible happen. Cage York is the bad boy I wouldn't mind having to myself. He is still flirty, talks dirty but is so much more with Eva. Now, Eva herself comes from a tragic past. She lost her fiance in a war, and has not been able to move on with her life. With Cage moving in for summer, she lets herself give in for the change. I was really happy to see both the characters grow, and open up with each other.

     The romance between Cage & Eva was so well written. There was a lot of foreplay, and the result was mind blowing. I really like Eva. She was innocent but not shy; she was upfront with what she wanted, and boy, did she got it. I loved both the characters and they were just perfect for each other.

     I just wished the author would have explained Cage's DUI or the story behind it. But that is just mere curiosity, and nothing else. While it Lasts is a fast-paced book with real relatable emotions, and a hot  steamy romance. I loved it, and would definitely re-read it again.
