There are sequels and then there are PERFECT sequels, and this is as perfect as a continuation of a favourite story can get. In While It Lasts, we fell in love with Cage York, a bad boy sent to work on a farm during summer because of a DUI, who met his match in one fierce and no-nonsense farmer's daughter named Eva Brooks. We watched them flirt, fight their attraction, and eventually succumb to love. While at the end of that book we had left them in a good place, in this sequel, we watch them fight for that happy ending, through heartache and tragedy, but making it one heck of a roller-coaster ride that you won't want to pause for one single second. Cage York is my new obsession and after you read this book, you'll know why.
"No one else for me ever. You're it. You're my always."
The story takes off where the first book ended, Cage and Eva are blissfully happy together and faced with their first big decision as a couple - whether to move interstate to attend a college that would offer Cage a full-ride scholarship and an opportunity to play college baseball, putting him one step closer to his dream of playing professionally. But smooth sailing quickly turns into choppy waters as Eva's whole world comes crushing down when faced with her father's sudden illness. Forced to stay back and look after her dad and the farm, Eva lets Cage go to college on his own, reluctantly but selflessly, knowing that holding him back would only take his dreams away.

This reads as the CliffsNotes of the first 14 of a total of 24 chapters... I accept that very few read romances for the suspense, but I still found it annoying to have so much of the story given away from the beginning just as it detracted from my enjoyment of the first chapters while Eva and Cage were still together, since I knew we were closing in on "disaster"... and a chapter of Eva's: "I wonder what's wrong with my father? - and what are all these bald people doing here?" is just absurd when one knows his funeral is coming up.
So then there were 10 chapters and an epilogue (which ironically gave much less away than the prologue) left to enjoy: I guess they were all right apart from an uncomfortable masturbation scene and the absence of any real discussion of how they would organize their life going forward (unless you consider a "the world well lost" for love-back and forth a great plan for the future)
The story itself was wonderful. I was super stressed by the prologue and was worried Cage and Eva would spend most of this book apart, but it wasn't the case. I really loved it!
Cage and Eva are no Rush and Blaire, but they are close!
I love Abbi Glines. I have read almost everything she has written. Her books are always fun to read because they capture you the second you start them. This book was much the same. The prologue, holy crap, we were thrown for a loop right from the first page! It started strong, but lost steam for me. I just had issues buying into the antics the roommate in Tennessee caused. It was a little to far fetched for me. The end really started to pick up and I was loving the story again, but then the epilogue disappointed me. I wanted more from the epilogue but the book just ended. For me it was like unwrapping a Christmas gift but not looking in the box to see what you got! With that said, I love Cage and Eva! They have dynamite chemistry and are loads of fun to read about! Initially, I was going to give this book 4 stars, but I decided to take a star away because the price of the book is just ridiculous! This book was just shy of 10 bucks with tax. For an e-book that is a bit outrageous if you ask me! If I am going to pay that much for an e-book, the book should have zero editing issues. Unfortunately, I found several errors. I am a fan of the old covers and the old prices. I am really glad I read the first 4 while they were self published by Abbi Glines. Any how, Sometimes It Lasts is a great read for any lovers of the Sea Breeze Series (like me). As much as I love the Rosemary Beach Series (like so many others), the Sea Breeze Series started my love affair for Abbi Glines' books, therefore, it's one of my all time favorite series. Looking forward to Jason's story. I wish we could get another book before December, I feel like I waited eons for this one to come out!
