Until the End by Abbi Glines

Until the End by Abbi Glines

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 conclusion to the Sea Breeze series 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. The steamy romance won’t stop until the very last page!

If you know anything about the romance novel world, you will have read or at least heard of, Abbi Glines. For those of you who like me, have been followed the Sea Breeze series, you're probably finished reading Until the End, because that should be first on everyone's to-do list.

Until the End is the final book in the series, and it is every possible loose ending tied up. Half the book was Trisha and Rock's story, and the other half were epilogues to all the couples. A part of me didn't want to read this book, just because I didn't want it to end. I never thought I would say this, but this series has turned out to be one of my favorites. From a weak start, this series has grown so much to become what it is today. Each story was memorable and you couldn't help being sucked into the stories. Abbi Glines pulled off this series with an incredible finish.

Trisha and Rock's story was incredible. I thought that no one could ever beat Krit and Blythe's but this one came in pretty darn close. I don't believe that high school relationships actually last, but theirs was just so stinking romantic. Rock was the prince charming every girl dreamed was. He was meant to be Trisha's soul mate. Their chemistry was off the charts and they just completed each other, and I was able to see that.

The epilogues was amazing. Each couple's epilogue tied in perfectly with Trisha and Rock's story and with one another and it brought back all the memories from the past eight books. All the reason I loved each couple came flowing into my head. I loved that their kids were in the stories and it just continued off from where we last saw them. It was beautifully executed and you really can't have asked for a better ending.

Oh, and you will adore the final epilogue. Trust me.

In conclusion, Until the End is a must read. If there was a stronger word I could use, I would. It is the perfect conclusion to this series and Abbi Glines seriously could not have done a better job.
