He's nice and he's interesting if a little shallow. He might even give you a pretty sweet kiss at the end of the night, but he just doesn't make you sigh or make your heart stutter or rock your socks or whatever. It's kind of like that. And then there's this book, Just for Now. How do I describe this vapid, overly sexualized, "is this really the new YA? So far, her books are just sort of all show and lack a bit of soul. It's like a Kardashian. I actually don't know anything about a Kardashian, so maybe that's unfair It seems very "cranked out".
I'll leave it at that. View all 14 comments.

Sep 21, Vishous rated it it was amazing Shelves: I already knew i was going to like this book when I read a teaser and boy did I like it! For start this is very adult book It's really amazing how Abbi Glines can always make me fall in love with one of her characters! I mean why do they all have to be so yummy?!?!? Preston was no different! What would you do if you find out that you're deeply in love with a gigolo and that that gigolo is your dream guy that still works and sleeps with older women?
I can tell you that i I already knew i was going to like this book when I read a teaser and boy did I like it! I can tell you that if that gigolo would be Preston I would forgive him everything I needed fucking saving" I wanted to hug him all the time, to curl up with him and tell him everything is gonna be fine. He was so sweet taking care of his younger sister and brothers, he didn't want for them to have shitty life with nobody to take care of them like he did and he would do everything for them. And in his fucked up life there was one more problem He was so torn with feelings for her and respect for her brother.
Yeah he was sometimes asshole toward her but that was all because he didn't want to disappoint Marcus and he thought he didn't deserve such girl like Amanda was. I totally understand why was all female population in that town crazy about him and why was he such a man-whore, I mean he was hot! What was there not to like him?
I wanted to slap that bitch so hard even though I understood why did she do that! But they were so sweet together, so made to be and that's why I wanted to strangle her for ruining everything because he really was trying to change everything because he didn't want to loose her View all 15 comments. Jul 21, Amy Foxy Blogs rated it it was amazing Shelves: Just For Now was an enjoyable audio.
Hopefully my online library will get the other books in this series because currently it doesn't own them. Abbi Glines created another likable tale with a younger sister, Amanda, in love with her older brother's best friend, Preston. But this tale has a twist because for the hero to support his younger siblings he has become a gigolo.
I love you so damn much it consumes me. I don't deserve you, but I'm gonna become the man who does deserve you. I'll make you proud of me. Book 9 is due out Oct. View all 31 comments. Once again Abbi did not disappoint by writing this blinder of a story which had me hooked from the start. I have to say I found this one to be the most emotional Reviewed on: I have to say I found this one to be the most emotional book in this series. I was in tears several times following their journey. Now, when I got to a certain point in this story a song was mentioned which is one I happen to love.
As soon as I saw that, I turned my iPod on, and listened to it whilst reading. Whenever a particular emotional scene with Amanda and Preston came up, I was a glutton for punishment and hit play on my iPod. Yeah at times I am a masochist because it made me cry even more! But then I like a good cry in a book. Seriously, have a listen to this song: Hunter Hayes — Wanted, I promise you will feel it! His story showed me why…and I got it.
If you have never been shown love, how would you know how to give it or even know how to recognize it to be love when you feel it? Our Preston is envious of those who have the ability to love and receive love in return. Preston grew up under dire circumstances, with no one to take the brunt of it and no one to look out for him. His siblings live with their Mum in a cramped trailer that has seen better days and is actually more like a hole in the ground. Can you tell that she got to me?
Preston hates that they have to live like that and goes above and beyond to try and make sure they have what they need but also making sure they know he is there for them despite having to leave them to it. It breaks his heart…. It all comes down to money…so Preston does what he thinks he needs to, in order to make enough to look after them ,as well as himself. The means to which, though questionable, are kind of understandable. Preston is not proud of himself.
He knows exactly what he is doing and he hates it. As to knowing who he is, he has no idea, confused by responsibilities and actions; he has lost himself along the way. Preston thinks Amanda is way too good for him; the light to his darkness. An innocent who will be tainted by his ugliness, a beauty and perfection he does not deserve. They hang around in the same crowd and no way would anyone think Preston was good enough for her and she knows that Preston only sees her as the little sister, no matter the effort she puts into making him notice her.
Amanda knows what love is. She has a huge heart and knows the value of forgiveness; one of the biggest and hardest gifts you can give to another. Despite Preston giving Amanda whip lash she sticks around, she fights for it. She believes she can teach Preston how to love, how it feels and show him he deserves to be loved for who he is. Then one night it happens…. You make me want to change everything. I wanted to come out here to think. And I wanted you to be with me. Could I imagine life without her…. Could I be in love with her…..
We were sent an ARC by the author for a fair and honest review View all 12 comments. Mar 05, Juice rated it did not like it. You heard the song Sex On The Beach? Well change it to: No, wait they did have sex on a beach If you love books with loads of sex scenes and nearly no plot, stop reading this review and pick up the book! You have 3 seconds I cannot remember anything in this book but Disclaimer: I cannot remember anything in this book but sex. Did they have those cute, witty couple moments that make you hate your life because you are single?
Did they get to know each other before doing the dirtaaay?
Just For Now
Did they go on any dates? And some how they are in LOVE? This is all I got out of Preston's character Oh, and he looks after children sometimes. All I got from Amanda is; And she gets pushed around a lot and is NOT a slut, but a innocent girl who has more sex than a Russel Brand in the play boy mansion. I seriously doubt that either Amanda or Preston could name each other's favorite colour. To make it worse I cannot recall any romantic moment in the entire book. Reading from Preston's point of view was horrible, all I got was a horny git who looks after children, I don't see the appeal.
And the graphic descriptions of what he wanted sexually?

Some of the things he thought just made me do this: Amber hates Preston and suddenly she finds out that he's sorry for humping and dumping her and that he has siblings who he occasionally looks after and, BAM! Bet you didn't notice the completely random sex in that paragraph, but you probably noticed it in the book If this is how I feel after reading a book: Then clearly something's wrong, a book's lasting impression is as important as the content and all I got was: Sep 17, Autumn Review rated it it was amazing Shelves: I have been waiting and waiting for Amanda's book. I have loved this girl since I met her in Breathe.
Something about her, just spoke to me. Well, my wait is over and I couldn't have picked a better match for her. Preston is one smokin guy. Amanda has had her eye on Preston for a long time. The problem is that Preston is her brother Marcus' best friend. In a desperate attempt to get some kind of attention from him, they have one hot night together. The thing is I have been waiting and waiting for Amanda's book.
Just For Now (Sea Breeze, book 4) by Abbi Glines
The thing is, Preston doesn't really remember it. He thinks it was a dream, while she's left mending a broken heart. Then there's the fact that they have to be near each other. He's her brother's best friend. Plus, she knows that Preston has had a difficult life, but he's never really let anyone really see it. But, Amanda can see through the wall he's put up and she wants in. Preston can't stop thinking about Amanda and his attraction to her.
He's tried to put her out of his mind, but he simply can't when everywhere he looks she's there.

So, does he give in or try to keep avoiding her. Well, we all know the answer to that. BUT, Preston has a secret. No one knows what he's had to do take care of his family. His mom is a wretched woman who has no use in being a mother, but there are three kids that need to be taken care of and Preston is the one to do it.
The only thing Preston knows to do in order to keep food on the table is use his looks and his body for money. Preston truly broke my heart. Getting into his head and his life really affected me. Yes, he's a player, but you have a better understanding as to why he is the way he is. He's never really felt love. The closest relationship he's had is with Marcus, as a brother type relationship.
Once he stops fighting his attraction for Amanda and he really let's her in, he can't help but fall hard for her. Amanda really is the perfect girl for Preston. She's been patient with him and develops a great relationship with his siblings. Now, she doesn't know what he's had to do in order to survive, but it effects their relationship.
I'm not going into too much detail about that, because obviously it's big factor in the story. But, I will tell you this I believed in their love for each other. While there was more sexual content in this book than in others in this series, I felt that it was appropriate for the story. The relationship that Preston and Amanda have is full of love. It was hot, but tender as well. You know what I mean? So, for those of you that like a bit of steam to your story, you won't be disappointed. Abbi Glines has delivered another favorite for me.
While I'm now satisfied that my girl Amanda has gotten her story and her guy, I'm always anxious for more of this bunch. I feel like these characters are true part of my life. If you haven't started this series WHAT are you waiting for????
View all 13 comments. I think I actually melted into a puddle of goo!!! I want soooooo much more! I totally get it: My biggest problem was that Amanda was too much of a doormat. I can sympathize with what it was like to be 18 and in love, but come on Sep 04, Christy rated it it was amazing. I have to say Abbi Glines is a fantastic author! I love everything she writes- everything! Just for now was no exception! She was able to take a character Preston that was just okay for me in the other books and made me fall in love with him!
Like he seriously gave Cage a run for his money and that is really saying something!!!! His story was heartbreaking at times, but he was so wonderful! Amanda leads a totally different life than Preston. She may have some family issue I have to say She may have some family issues, but compared to Prestons they seem pretty minor. Amanda hasn't wanted for much of anything in her life, whereas Preston has to make many sacrifices to support his 3 siblings I loved those kids!
Sacrifices that threaten his realationship in a huge way. By the way, did I mention that this book is hot?!?!? HOT , Just saying. This series just gets better and better as it goes on. I am so happy there is going to be another one! If you haven't read this book, or any others in the series, you are missing out big time! Apr 13, Kara rated it it was ok Shelves: Throughout most of this book, I was fully prepared to give it three stars.
Before I get into the delightful reasons why I could not, let me explain where I was going with this. So, I don't have an easy time going to sleep, and I wanted something light and fluffy to read, something I would fall asleep to without realizing it. So, cheesy light corny romance it is! I was wary about picking something "New Adult" as I've had serious issues with most of the ones I've tried so far, but it was getting la Throughout most of this book, I was fully prepared to give it three stars.
Suffice it to say, I was pleasantly surprised. Of course, I realized I was grading on a curve, so it wasn't that I really liked the book so much as I didn't hate the book as much as I expected. Let's all take a moment of silence and reflect on the tragedy of that Don't get me wrong. Just For Now isn't a particularly well written book.
It's simplistic in its language, does way more telling than showing, and manages to include excessive details on some stuff, while leaving out very basic details on other things for example, one thing that bothered me: I have no idea how old the male lead was. And of course, it's a corny good-girl-and-bad-boy romance which I am way tired of but again I was looking for something light and I'm starting to think these are the only types of romances written these days. But what I was unexpectedly pleased by was the characterization of the "bad boy.
He had no tattoos, he did have a six-pack, but you know what - he was an athlete! He worked for them!!! He drove a regular car, as opposed to a motorcycle or a vintage car, he wasn't nursing a secret artistic talent. And more importantly, he wasn't violent - he wasn't someone "everyone was scared of". He wasn't even necessarily the alpha male of his particular clique of friends and, hello, he HAD friends and wasn't the tortured loner. There were no public singalongs, he didn't pick her up in public and take her away, for god's sake he didn't fall asleep with her on the bathroom floor because she drank too much and can't keep her hair out of the toilet!
I guess we can start calling her Madame President since she somehow manages to fend for herself And as if I could even dare to dream further Preston had a terrible mother and no father is ever mentioned - she was an alcoholic, neglectful and was verbally abusive. He now has three little brothers and sisters and since his good for nothing mother does nothing to take care of them, Preston has stepped in and is essentially bankrolling the family - he pays their rent in addition to his own , buys groceries, clothes and tries to spend time with the kids and be a loving adult presence.
How does he do all this when he's also trying to keep his grades up so he can keep his scholarship as well as stay on top of his game for his budding baseball career? By being a male prostitute for all the lonely middle aged socialites in town. No one, not even his friends, know how he makes his money, and he damn sure doesn't wanted our heroine Amanda, who he seems to legitimately care about, sucked into his drama. So he isn't pushing her away out of some melodramatic "I'm worthless and I'll never be good for anyone" martyr complex.
He's pushing her away because he has mouths to feed and a messy personal life and doesn't want to drag her into that. YA that makes some f-ing sense! Never thought I'd see the day! I also appreciated how Amanda was done. While much was made of her "sweetness" and "innocence", I wasn't quite clear if this was just because she was a somewhat-sheltered year-old, or if she was above and beyond as compared to other girls her age.
But in any case, it was thorough and consistent throughout. It wasn't "I'm pretending to be a good girl when in reality I do all the wild crazy dumb shit all the other girls do, I just don't get pigeonholed for it" Abby Abernathy, no pun intended , she wasn't just fucking stupid hey Ana Steele! And what's more, she recognized the flaws in her logic and behavior. Preston repeatedly tried to push her away, mainly by either avoiding her or saying really really mean things to her. And she's not so stupid that she questions her whole existence.
It's more "what did I do to make him treat me this way? But of course, Preston is drawn to her in spite of himself and isn't always successful in his efforts to stay away from her, so when he turns hot and shows interest and attraction to her - in, it should be noted, a genuinely nice and friendly way, and not the smooth operator way we've come to expect from such novels - she caves.
But she KNOWS she's making the wrong choice, she's just not yet at a point to tell him to go to hell. Abby and Ana, hope you're taking notes She doesn't delude herself, and she doesn't excuse his behavior, she just recognizes that she's still got a weak spot for him. And honestly, that is all I fucking ask for from my romantic leads. They don't have to be perfect, they don't have to make good decisions, just some goddamn self-awareness would be nice from time to time.
But oh how things went so terribly wrong So without further ado: Preston has not fought her for custody of the kids up until this point because she is hateful enough to fight him on it, and he's still a college kid with an undisclosed income source, so he's not exactly a great fit in the eyes of the law.
The kids come to live with him, but Preston notes that he is worried about not being deemed their guardian, or worse yet, having them split up when they get to foster care. Of course, his friends step in and help him manage - one couple in particular, his friend Rock and Rock's wife Trisha. They helped move the kids to Preston's place, and they come by and do things like pack lunches for the kids, fix dinner, etc. So anyway, after like 4 fucking days yall Rock and Trisha - who up till now have had about 8 lines combined - come knock on Preston's door.
Trish launches into this sob story about how for some reason she can't have kids and how expensive fertility treatments are. Anyway, she's all like Well, your kids are super cute and I love them already, so can we have your kids?
Preston has been so secret about his home life, I'm not entirely sure his friends even knew he had siblings. But even if they did, they certainly did not meet these kids until after the mom dies. I mean, she straight told him that one of the brothers was "just like Rock". Now, I have read some dumb shit in my day. I think because it was so unconnected to the story and the plot, and so unfathomably ridiculous that I literally couldn't wrap my head around it. With those other two, I raged. You know what I did when I came across that? I mean, truly, all I could do was I laughed so hard I thought my neighbors would hear me.
I had to wipe away real life tears. It happens damn near at the end of the book and I almost didn't finish the last few pages because what in the ever loving fuck would ever make me concentrate on anything else? Yeah, that was fun. Can I have them? And the kids trust Preston so they are likely to trust his friends.
The funeral isn't discussed, so I'm not even sure the mama had been buried when they have this conversation! You can't expect some kids who didn't know you existed last week to just come live with you and start calling you mama! I have absolutely no words for this. And while the lolz will stay with me forever, those 3 or 4 pages almost completely erased any credibility it had established. There are other problems - the cheezeball factor, the goddamn as-soon-as-we-kiss-we're-an-inseparable-couple factor, the failure to explore in depth some of the more interesting character dynamics and instead just glossing over them with a couple of paragraphs - but because it bucks many of the NA romance prototypes, I still had to give it 2 stars.
View all 4 comments. Aug 26, Splage rated it it was amazing Shelves: That is why I probably loved it so much because I got the young carefree characters with raging hormones and hot young bodies. And the relationship starts off quick, "slambam thank you mam". This and the last book in this series, While It Lasts , are absolute favorites of mine and I can see potential for future books because there are some good characters left.
The story line has been done before, Preston falls in love with his best friend's younger sister, but he is not good enough for her in anybody's mind except for Amanda's. She has been in love with Preston since she was 16 years old and she decides she is going to have him. Preston is a Horndog, with a capital "H" and he tries to resist, but we all know how that tends to work out. Even though the plot has been done before I felt there was a lot more depth with additional hurdles and situations Preston had to deal with in his family life and "job" situation.
Along with the fabulous chemistry the story does pull on the heartstrings, as well as, add the element of jealousy with other opposite sex interests. If you like the Young Adult vibe, but with the things they can't put in a book to keep it true YA, like hook ups, hot sex, dirty language and adult themes, you will find it here. View all 9 comments.

Just for Now (Sea Breeze, #4)
Need I say more? Abbi Glines has really delivered with this nicely presented treat, and I'm now a firm slightly stalkerish fan. In order to provide for his family that he loves, Preston makes himself available to rich older women. Preston knows that his 'arrangements' are less than ideal especially when his best friends little sister keeps getting under his skin. There is so much more to him.
Preston grew up in an unstable environment with a mother who cared more about drinking than him. Preston made it out and is working hard to keep his baseball scholarship and keeping his grades up all while taking care of his mother's bills and three younger siblings. Preston cannot afford to loose his scholarship and finding work that is flexible with his courses and baseball training is very difficult. The struggle wouldn't be so much of a big deal and he will get by if it wasn't for the fact that Preston's three younger siblings relied on him to keep a rough over their heads and food in their mouths.
Desperate to make sure that his siblings don't go without, Preston uses his looks and playboy reputation to sleep with older, rich women for money. Yes, Preston is a gigolo. At first, the job didn't bother him as much. Once Preston fell in love with Amanda, his best friend's sister, everything changed.
How can Preston be worthy of Amanda's love when he is hiding such a huge secret from her? I also enjoyed this book because of Amanda. Amanda Hardy is the younger sister of Marcus Hardy. We first met both characters in Breathe. Amanda was young and vulnerable. She always looked to Marcus to take care of her and pick up the pieces when everything in their world was falling apart.
In Just for Now, Amanda's character developed. Amanda had had a crush on Preston since she was However, Amanda knew that she wasn't his type. Preston was a magnet for "model type" females with large breasts. Amanda had her natural beauty and curves which she didn't feel was enough. She didn't realize her own beauty and appeal. She tried hard seducing Preston until one night he gave in.
Preston was beyond drunk and for a while didn't remember if what happened between he and Amanda was real or a dream. The attraction and love between Preston and Amanda was one that they couldn't deny. Amanda saw Preston for who he really was. In this book Amanda displayed strength and determination. I really enjoyed this story. I'm very anal about reading from Book one and up in a series, never thought I would read a book out of order. But I came across an excerpt of Just For Now from the Sea Breeze series at the back of another book and what I read made me immediately wanted to read this wonderful story.
And I mean immediately, I went ahead and purchased the book and read it immediately too , I love Preston's and Amanda's love story. Preston will always have a special place in my heart as one of the best good bad guys. Hope that makes sense. He has the bad boy image down packed but he has a heart of gold. Manda wanted Preston and she will do whatever it takes to get her guy. Preston also wants Manda, but he thinks she's too good for him and he's no good for her.
