Excerpt : The Vincent Boys + GIVEAWAY!



Today I have an excerpt from The Vincent Boys by Abbi Glines ! 
The Vincent Boys (The Vincent Boys #1)
BLURB:
Being the good girl isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Ashton Gray has grown weary of playing the part to please her parents, and to be worthy of the town’s prince charming, Sawyer Vincent. Maybe That’s why she’s found herself spending time with Sawyer’s cousin, Beau, while he’s away for the summer camping with his family. Beau is nothing like her perfect boyfriend. He’s the sexiest guy she’s ever seen, dangerous in ways she’s only day dreamed about, and the one guy she should stay away from. 
Beau never envied Sawyer his loving parents, his big nice home, or his position as quarterback. He loves him like a brother. Which is why he's tried everything in his power to keep his distance from Sawyer’s girlfriend. Even if he has loved her since the age of five, Ashton is Sawyer’s girl, so therefore she’s off limits. But when Sawyer leaves for the summer, Ashton, the one girl Beau would move Heaven and Earth for, decides she wants to get into trouble. Stabbing the one person who’s always accepted him and stood by him in the back, is the cost of finally holding Ashton Gray in his arms. Is she worth losing his cousin over?.... Hell Yeah.

EXCERPT

“Now, for your first lesson in pool. We’ll do a few practice rounds before we actually play.” Beau sat his stick down and nodded at the one in my hand. “You’re going to hit the white ball into the other balls and break them,” he explained.
I took the stick, bent over the table and tried to remember all the times I’d watched people play pool on television. Before I could think too hard, Beau’s warm body closed in behind me. His hand covered mine making me light headed. It took me a second to remember to breathe.
“This is the part I’ve been looking forward to,” he murmured in my ear as he adjusted my hands on the stick. The heat from his body made me want to snuggle up against him. I tried to stay focused but I could feel his warm breath on my ear and his hip was touching my behind. His chest barely grazed my back.
“You’re shivering Ash,” he whispered.
I didn’t know how to respond. I couldn’t blame it on being cold. I was inside an overly warm bar in the middle of the summer.
“Now, you’re ready to make the shot,” his voice sent chills over my body and I nodded afraid if I gazed up at him I’d throw myself in his arms. Instead, I let him guide me into making the shot. Colorful balls rolled all over the table but I couldn’t seem to concentrate.
“Good job, we’ve got to decide which ball we want to sink and set up your next shot.”
I closed my eyes and took a steadying breath as he stood up and left the close proximity of my body. I straightened praying my knees didn’t buckle beneath me.
Beau’s gaze made my cheeks flush. A pleased grin touched his lips and I suddenly wanted to know how those lips would feel pressed against mine. I couldn’t take my eyes off them. Even when his smile vanished I continued staring at his mouth.
“You’re gonna have to stop doing that Ash,” Beau whispered huskily and closed the space between us. His body was suddenly pressed against mine. I managed to shake my fascination with his lips and gaze up into his eyes.  He was staring down at me with a hungry gleam I wasn’t accustomed to seeing. But I liked it. I liked it a lot.
“Ash, I’m trying real hard to be good. Good isn’t my thing but Sawyer’s important to me. Please remember I’ve got my limits and you studying my mouth like you want a taste is pushing me dangerously close to the edge of those limits.”
Swallowing nervously I nodded. I couldn’t speak just yet because I was pretty sure I’d ask him to follow through with whatever he might be considering.
He let out a frustrated sigh then turned me around to face the pool table.
“Now, back to business. Looks like the solids have the best set up so you can be solids and I’ll take stripes. Your red ball is in the best spot. It’s almost at the corner pocket over there and your white ball is very close to it. So back in position.”
I managed to stay focused on what he was telling me until he once again moved in behind me to correct the way I was holding the stick.
“Slow and easy Ash.”
I took a deep steadying breath and hit the white ball. It rolled straight for the red ball and the red ball sank into the hole.
“I did it,” I squealed and twirled around to throw my arms around Beau’s neck. It wasn’t until his arms wrapped around me and I got a very yummy whiff of his soap smell that I realized this hadn’t been a wise move.
“Yes you did,” he said chuckling then kissed the top of my head. I forced myself to drop my hands and step back away from him.
“Okay, now which one do I hit?” I asked smiling up at him like my heart wasn’t racing in my chest from having him hold me.
He studied the table and nodded. “The blue one is in a good spot.”
