The day Preston Drake figured out that wealthy women paid well for a set of tight abs and a pretty face his life turned around.I will forever read Abbi's books, they suck me in and rarely ever spit me out in one piece. This is a note to everyone reading this. Once you start, you will not stop. You will be buying/borrowing/loaning all of her books, you will be up late into the night, and you will freaking enjoy every single moment lost in her books.
The run down rat-infested trailer he had shared with his alcoholic mother and three younger siblings was now only a place he visited to pay the bills and stock the pantry with food. He no longer worried about his family starving or living without electricity. The money he made entertaining rich older women more than covered his family’s needs and his own. He had it all figured out. Except…
There was this girl.
She was as innocent as he was tainted.
Amanda Hardy wished her knees didn’t get weak when Preston walked into a room. She hated the fact her heart raced when he flashed his smile in her direction. He had a different girl in his bed every night. He was the kind of boy a smart girl ran from. So, why was she coming up with ways to get close to him? Even when it was obvious he wanted to keep her at a distance.
Maybe her heart knew something the world didn’t. Maybe Preston Drake was more than just a pretty face.
Just for Now is the 4th Sea Breeze book. First came Breathe, then Because of Low, and third was While it Lasts. While each book is it's own and you definitely don't have to read them in order, I would. There will be little pieces in each relating to past books and they are all so unbelievably awesome that you don't want to miss a second!
If I was going to sum up Just for Now in one it would be, complicated. Abbi Glines is good about that, writing these deep and frustrating love stories that are so intense, meaningful, and keep the reader turning pages. I never want them to end. Preston Drake has some serious issues he is dealing with and is doing what he feels he needs to do. Then, along comes little Amanda Hardy to mess it all up. She rocks his boat and alters his life, but the question I kept asking myself was, is it enough to change him?
The chemistry and attraction between Manda and Preston comes full-force-Abbi (I'm coining that term). This woman throws out everything she's got in her exceptionally enticing and mostly forbidden romances. From Beau and Ashton, to Cage and Eva, and now Amanda and Preston. Full fledge rock star status Miss Abbi!
Preston hasn't had an easy life. While his ego seems to be unhindered to the flocks of woman batting eyelashes at him, deep down he's hurting. Amanda Hardy has done everything she possibly could to get his attention over the years, and when he finally notices her one night it results in one of the steamiest craziest beginnings of any book I've come into contact with.
I highly recommend this book for fans of Tammara Webber, Nicole Williams, Colleen Hoover, and Liz Reinhardt! And, of course to those of us who will follow Abbi to the ends of the earth, don't miss this one!
