While it Lasts by Abbi Glines

While It Lasts (Sea Breeze, #3)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.


While it Lasts was a bit different from Abbi’s previous works. In a good way of course. When I started reading WiL I couldn’t believe it was considered an adult book. The reason why, is because I felt that it had a little bit of Young Adult, New Adult and Adult in it. Somehow Abbi made it work. So I’m going to divide my review by genre. This is of course my opinion.

What I thought was Young Adult.


Eva acted how a YA character would act. She wasn’t immature; she was innocent, sweet but also a fighter. She brings the nice Cage out but at the same time Cage brings the feisty out of her. To me, they balanced each other out.

What I thought was New Adult.

The whole vibe of the book was New Adult. It was fun not as limited as the Young Adult genre could be sometimes. I feel like authors have more freedom when writing a New Adult book.

What I thought was Adult.


Cage. Oh my! He was such a delicious character to read. He was so different from Abbi’s other characters, except from Beau. Cage was 100 times worse than Beau or should I say better? Let’s go with better! I have to say he’s my favorite Abbi Boy.

The sexy times!!!

* Blushes* So, eh… Yeah this part of the book was definitely adult!

Overall While it Lasts was a mix of everything awesome. It gave me THE feeling. You know the feeling that you don’t want to do anything else but read? The butterflies in the stomach? The Giggles and giddiness? No? Well if you read While it Last you’ll get the feeling. Let’s call it the Abbi Feeling. Because the first time I felt it was when I read Breathe. Which is another fantastic book by Abbi Aka the queen of awesome!
