The Vincent Boys by Abbi GlinesPublisher: Hot Key BooksRelease date: January 2013
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.
In exciting news Hot Key Books have acquired UK and Commonwealth rights to Abbi Glines' previously self-published books The Vincent Boys and The Vincent Brothers. I've been reading some great reviews of these books recently and I can't wait to check them out when they publish over here. In addition to some hot new cover art, the traditionally published editions of the books will have an additional 10,000 words of racy content!
First published as ebooks, The Vincent Boys and The Vincent Brothers have already caused a storm in the States, with over 100,000 copies sold since publication in October 2011. The books have also attracted plenty of praise from readers with over 5,000 5* ratings and 1,300 written reviews (average 4.2 stars) on Good Reads and over 500 Amazon.com reviews (average 4.7 stars).
Praise for The Vincent Boys:
'We are absolutely thrilled to be publishing Abbi's novels. This riveting raunchy romance gives E L James a serious run for her money!' - Emily Thomas, Hot Key Books.
'I couldn't put Beau down until I got to the very last page. An addicting read!' Colleen Hoover, NYT bestselling author of Slammed and Point of Retreat
'I devoured every last word of The Vincent Brothers. Abbi Glines knows how to write her leading men.' Tammara Webber NYT bestselling author of Easy
Abbi Glines:- 'I've always written stories that I want to read. I didn't expect to share them with others. The day I realized that The Vincent Boys had sold over 20,000 copies in only three months on Amazon alone, I realized that maybe this was what I was supposed to do - write edgy young adult romances that appeal to more than just the teen reader. I'm very excited about this opportunity to work with Hot Key and the chance to bring my books to readers in the UK.'
Hot Key Books will publish THE VINCENT BOYS first in Australia in November 2012 and in the UK in January 2013. THE VINCENT BROTHERS will publish in Australia in January 2013 and in the UK in March 2013. Simon & Schuster is publishing both books in the States in autumn 2012.
