Playing Catch Up!! A Review of the Sea Breeze Series Books 7-9 by Abbi Glines

This has been such a fun and addictive series! Yes, they're quite naughty little books, but I couldn't get enough! Have you read any or all of them too? Let me know what you thought!

What is "Playing Catch Up" you ask? I'll tell you about it here!

Bad for You (Sea Breeze #7) by Abbi Glines
Genre: Adult (Contemporary Romance)
Date Published: April 1, 2014
Publisher: Simon Pulse

Innocence was never meant for the addictive… 

Addiction was something Krit Corbin accepted as part of his nature a long time ago. He decided to embrace it and flip his finger at the rules. Women had always been the number one thing on his list of addictions. He couldn’t get enough. Being the lead singer in a rock band had only made access to his favorite addiction that much easier.

Being alone was the only thing Blythe Denton understood. The small town minister’s family that raised her hadn’t accepted her as their own. The minister’s wife had always made sure Blythe understood just how unworthy she was of love. When Blythe is sent away to college and given a chance to finally be free of living as an unwanted burden, she looks forward to having peace in her life. Being alone isn’t something that bothers her. She escapes reality in the stories she writes.

However, the ridiculously sexy tattooed guy who keeps throwing parties in the apartment above hers is driving her crazy. For starters, he doesn’t treat her like she would expect a guy with a different woman always hanging on his arm to treat someone as uninteresting as her. She looks nothing like the gorgeous women she sees parading in and out of his apartment, but for some strange reason he keeps showing up at her door.

During a party at his apartment, Krit’s new neighbor comes to the door with her long brown hair pulled up in a messy knot and a pair of glasses perched on her cute little nose. She wants him to turn down the music, but he convinces her to stay.

Krit Corbin may have just found his biggest addiction yet. And Blythe Denton realizes too late that she’s finally been claimed.

Bad for You is book seven in the Sea Breeze series by Abbi Glines. Krit is the ultimate bad boy. Blythe is the ultimate good girl. Together they are fun to read about. I love how Krit shocks her and does things to taunt her on purpose. It's funny. Neither of them had the best upbringing. Krit's caused him to have addictions/obsessions of sorts, while Blythe has absolutely no self esteem. Together they fit though. I love how they build each other up. I really didn't think I'd like Krit, but I have to say, he surprised me.

Hold on Tight (Sea Breeze #8) by Abbi Glines
Genre: Adult (Contemporary Romance)
Date Published: June 3, 2014
Publisher: Simon Pulse

Six years ago, Dewayne Falco's life changed. He lost someone he never expected to lose. Resigned to punish himself for something he felt he could have prevented, he goes through life without getting too close to anyone.

What he didn't expect was for the girl across the street to move back home and remind him of what they both lost: Dewayne's younger brother Dustin. However, when a miniature version of Dustin opens the door to greet him, Dewayne realizes he might not have lost everything after all.

Sienna Roy loved Dustin Falco most of her life. He was the boy next door, the high school basketball star and her best friend. But when his life was cut short, she realized he left a part of himself behind.

Now, she's back in Sea Breeze, thankful to have a home for her and Dustin's son, but not sure if she can ever forgive the people across the street who abandoned her when she needed them the most — The Falcos.

Betrayal, lies, and forbidden attraction might end Dewayne and Sienna's story before it's even begun.

Hold on Tight is the eighth book in the Sea Breeze series by Abbi Glines. I never thought much about Dewayne while reading this series. He was always the one in the background with his comments here or there. We saw little of him. So, I didn't know what to expect with his story. What I found out was... I think I like him the best so far. Possibly even more than Marcus. What?! I know! It's true. There's a lot to Dewayne. Who knew? I also like Sienna. With her story and background, they are just a good fit. I LOVED their story.

Until the End (Sea Breeze #9) by Abbi Glines
Genre: Adult (Contemporary Romance)
Date Published: October 28, 2014
Publisher: Simon Pulse

The backstory that fans have been clamoring for—how Rock and Trisha fell in love—is the final installment in the Sea Breeze series from New York Times bestselling author Abbi Glines. And don’t miss the sizzling Epilogue, where Abbi wraps up all the Sea Breeze couples’ stories!

Trisha Corbin always knew how to hide a bruise. With her momma’s boyfriends unable to keep their hands off of her, she had no choice. And as long as it meant the guys wouldn’t go near her little brother, Krit, it was worth it. But her days of dreaming that Prince Charming would ever come rescue her are far, far in the past.

Rock Taylor always had a plan. Through football, he would rise above the life he was born into. A full ride to play for a major college team was within his reach—assuming he didn’t let anything get in his way. But scoring a date with the hottest girl in Sea Breeze was proving harder than expected. Trisha Corbin was every man’s walking fantasy, and she wouldn’t even glance his way.

When Rock finally does get Trisha in his truck, it isn’t for a date. It’s because he picks her up on the side of the road, beaten and bruised and walking to the local hospital. Before Rock knows it, football is no longer his life. Trisha Corbin is. And he’ll do anything to save her. And keep her.

In addition to Rock and Trisha’s love story, this special novel contains the wrap-up stories of all your favorite Sea Breeze couples: Sadie and Jax, Marcus and Low, Cage and Eva, Preston and Amanda, Jess and Jason, Krit and Blythe, and Dewayne and Sienna.

Until the End is the ninth and final book in the Sea Breeze series by Abbi Glines. I'm so sad to see this series end. I've grown very attached to all of these characters. This final book is the back story of how Rock and Trisha fell in love. They were high school sweethearts. Their story was just as addictive as the previous eight. These two have an added cuteness though because you get to know them bit by bit through out the series.

The epilogue was amazing. It let us visit the previous eight couples and get updated on where they are  and what's going on. A few of them scared me! Let me tell you! And, I got down right angry at a couple of the guys a time or two. There is something that stuck out a few books back, and is emphasized in this epilogue pretty well... this is the most fertile bunch of people I've ever heard of. There are babies popping out everywhere! It's madness! *wink*

Lastly, we get a glimpse of a couple of the kids in their teen years. Does this mean they will be getting their own book? I sure hope so! Maybe they're written already. I'll have to check the author's website!

If you like a little naughty with your nice, this is the series for you! Please, check out my reviews of all the books in this series!
