Review- Sometimes It Lasts by Abbi Glines

Goodreads 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 fiancé’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.

REVIEW:

Sometimes It Lasts was one of the most anticipated New Adult releases of 2013 because- 1) it's an Abbi Glines book, 2) it's a Sea Breeze novel and 3) it's Cage York's book. 
Of all the Sea Breeze boys, Cage York has been my most favourite since the moment he was first introduced in Because Of Low and I madly fell in love with him during While It Lasts. From the way things were described in Just For Now, it was clear that Eva and Cage were facing some problems and I was thrilled when Abbi said there'd be another book for the cute couple. 
Sometimes It Lasts starts out with a heartbreaking prologue. It then moves to the happy times that Eva and Cage spend when their relationship was at it's peak. From there, we then get to more ups than downs in their relationship which finally turns into something that is cute and fabulous. 
We saw Cage move from being a playboy to a man in While It Lasts and in Sometimes It Lasts, he remains a man who cares immensely about his woman and is protective of her. I loved his urge to fix every little thing that bothered Eva and take charge of every problem she faced. I loved seeing him want to have and work towards building a stable future for his lady, his family and himself. In short, I fell in love with him all over again. 
I had a few issues with some of Eva's decisions and reactions in this book, but she was still her caring and sweet self and that made it perfectly fine. I liked how she cared about her dad and her dead fiancé's twin brother Jeremy as much as she cared about Cage. 
Eva and Cage are so cute together it's hard to not have a smile plastered on your face while reading their story. They are fabulous and sexy. I love them! 
Also, it was amazing to meet all the other Sea Breeze guys and girls and I'm so excited to read stories of all the single dudes. I'm sure Abbi Glines has something really nice planned for each of them. 
Sometimes It Lasts was a perfect ending to Eva and Cage's wonderful story that I devoured in a few hours and that makes me smile every time I think of it and most importantly, every time I think of my boy Cage. He's super!

  3. I just finished writing a review for this one and sadly, I ended up cutting a star. Ah, I wish I would have loved it like other Abbi's books but Cage ruined part of the book. I really didn't like him. But secondary characters did negate his actions and overall, I enjoyed this books. I'm so glad that you loved it. Great review, Sarika :)

  6. I thoroughly enjoyed this story even though I'm not a 20 something girl. We all remember trying times of our youth when we were in a state of uncertainty about a man in our life. This story took me back to my youth and good memories arose thinking about true compatibility and the struggles of love.
