Summary:
Cage York has to choose between a love of the game and a love of the girl in this sultry Sea Breeze novel from New York Times bestselling author Abbi Glines.


After waiting for his big break, bad boy Cage York is finally called up to prove his worth in the college baseball arena. But when Cage’s girlfriend, Eva, mourns the sudden loss of her father, it’s not Cage’s comforting arms she runs to, but those of her former fiancĂ©’s twin brother, Jeremy.


Torn between his baseball dream and the girl of his dreams, Cage must prove he’s worthy of Eva’s love, or risk losing her to Jeremy forever

My review:
"No one else for me ever. You're it. You're my always."
The prologue was pretty intriguing. It started with Eva standing in front of a crowd ready to give her speech at her dad's funeral. Then, she said that Cage had been the biggest lie of her life? WOAH. what? So I was really curious on how did that happen because last time I checked Cage and Eva were really in love. When Chapter 1 began, it was seven months ago. The whole thing was pretty long, I kept waiting till the scene where Eva was giving her speech. When that happened I was really happy and relieved.The whole time I was waiting for that moment. I mean when Abbi Glines went back on what happened seven months ago, sure I wanted to know what happened but I found it too long. Some scenes were unnecessary. I love the fight scenes. I like the parts where Cage and Eva argued because it's really interesting to read. When they never fight, that gets a little boring right? Or is it just me?

I honestly prefer the first book of Cage and Eva's story. I had more favorite scenes than this one. However I really like the song Eva wrote about Cage. In fact, it's on YouTube if you want to listen.

I gave this book a 4/5 stars because I enjoyed it despite the long flashback. I'm really happy with Cage's character development. He's a sweetheart and really caring compare to the old Cage who was pretty much a player and a jerk.
