Présentation de l'éditeur
Cage York finally has everything he ever wanted.
And Eva is at the very top of that list—the perfect girl with a temper as hot as her fabulously flawless body. But for Cage, a baseball scholarship has always been a close second. So when Cage finally gets his chance, he and Eva must endure a long distance relationship—and all the dangerous temptations that come with it. Temptations that former bad boy Cage York may not be able to escape.
Then after receiving some illicit photos that show Cage has been behaving badly—very badly—Eva finds solace in the comforting arms of her insanely attractive neighbor Jeremy, who vows that he will take care of Eva in ways Cage never could. It’s an offer that may be too good for Eva to turn down.
Torn between his baseball dream and the girl of this dreams, Cage must prove he’s worthy of Eva’s love, or risk losing her to Jeremy forever.

The country girl and the bad boy return.
I instantly fell in love with Cage when i read Because of Low like everyone else, i waited for Cage's story and i wasn't disappointed in While It Last. When i knew that they would be a sequel i mark every day in my calendar: the countdown had begun!
Yesterday at midnight Sharp i was on Amazon ready. I read the book in 5 hours, i couldn't put it down, i had to know their end and again Abbi done it right.
That woman is incredible in her writing, it was like i was hypnotized. Not only she writes books, she also writes songs! With amazing lyrics and i am so happy that it is available on Itunes :)
I grinned like a psycho reading it, i cried too, tears streamed down my face and then i laughed so hard i had cramps. The book is a perfect mix of what you want to feel when you read a story.
Abbi Glines, i admire you.

There are sequels and then there are PERFECT sequels, and this is as perfect as a continuation of a favourite story can get. In While It Lasts, we fell in love with Cage York, a bad boy sent to work on a farm during summer because of a DUI, who met his match in one fierce and no-nonsense farmer's daughter named Eva Brooks. We watched them flirt, fight their attraction, and eventually succumb to love. While at the end of that book we had left them in a good place, in this sequel, we watch them fight for that happy ending, through heartache and tragedy, but making it one heck of a roller-coaster ride that you won't want to pause for one single second. Cage York is my new obsession and after you read this book, you'll know why.
"No one else for me ever. You're it. You're my always."
The story takes off where the first book ended, Cage and Eva are blissfully happy together and faced with their first big decision as a couple - whether to move interstate to attend a college that would offer Cage a full-ride scholarship and an opportunity to play college baseball, putting him one step closer to his dream of playing professionally. But smooth sailing quickly turns into choppy waters as Eva's whole world comes crushing down when faced with her father's sudden illness. Forced to stay back and look after her dad and the farm, Eva lets Cage go to college on his own, reluctantly but selflessly, knowing that holding him back would only take his dreams away.
"You gotta let that boy go, baby girl. He came here last summer because he had a plan. He had one chance to get the future he wants and even though he is a rascal he is a smart boy. He got what he wanted. But if you ask him to let it go he will. In a heartbeat. Don't make him choose. Let him go. Make it okay for him to go take that dream he fought for. Do it `cause you love him."
What starts as a temporary long-distance relationship soon turns into missed phone calls and unusual text messages, and one ugly breakup later, Eva and Cage are no longer together. Eva's pain, coupled with the sorrow from watching her father slowly wither away, is tangible, soul-shattering. We watch her face a new reality in her life, bravely and with determination, regardless of the fact that her heart is breaking more and more each day. Cage is facing his own demons far away from the woman he loves. Eva's parting words scarred him deeply, awakening the unwanted little boy in him whose own mother had called him her biggest mistake.
"Just like my momma had when she'd called me her biggest mistake, she'd meant it. How could I fight for someone who didn't want me?"
They both stumble through their separation, heartbroken and lonely, until tragedy brings them back into each other's lives and back on the farm where they fell in love. And this is where the story becomes a whole new ballgame, one of two people still loving one another heart and soul, their bodies aching for each other, their lives making more sense being together than apart, but not trusting their hearts to find their way back to each other. Cage fights for Eva, like a man on a mission, persistently and passionately. He misses her in his arms, he resents her for giving up on them so easily and rejecting his love so readily, but he also loves her more than anything else in his life and he cannot see his future without Eva in it. But actions are so much better than mere words and nothing warms my heart like a man proving his undying love by refusing to leave his woman's side ever again.
"Being near you completes me. It makes me happy. I ****ed up and I lost you. I don't expect to ever get you back. I don't deserve you. But I want to be near you."
As Eva's resolve slowly crumbles down, we are reminded of the magic that made us fall in love with Cage and Eva in the first place, and why there is truly nothing like an Abbi Glines kind of happy ending. Brace yourselves because Ms Glines pulled out the big guns and gave these characters the send-off of a lifetime. Her books are getting more and more emotional with each new release and this instalment of the Sea Breeze series is no exception. Heart-wrenching, romantic, even sexier and steamier than the prequel and simply unputtable-down. Like I always say, pure Abbi Glines perfection.
"You're mine, Eva Brooks. Always. You told me that yourself and, sweetheart, I'm holding you to it."
This reads as the CliffsNotes of the first 14 of a total of 24 chapters... I accept that very few read romances for the suspense, but I still found it annoying to have so much of the story given away from the beginning just as it detracted from my enjoyment of the first chapters while Eva and Cage were still together, since I knew we were closing in on "disaster"... and a chapter of Eva's: "I wonder what's wrong with my father? - and what are all these bald people doing here?" is just absurd when one knows his funeral is coming up.
So then there were 10 chapters and an epilogue (which ironically gave much less away than the prologue) left to enjoy: I guess they were all right apart from an uncomfortable masturbation scene and the absence of any real discussion of how they would organize their life going forward (unless you consider a "the world well lost" for love-back and forth a great plan for the future)
The story itself was wonderful. I was super stressed by the prologue and was worried Cage and Eva would spend most of this book apart, but it wasn't the case. I really loved it!
Cage and Eva are no Rush and Blaire, but they are close!
