Book Shelf: Sometimes It Lasts (Sea Breeze #5) by Abbi Glines

Cage York has to choose between a love of the game and a love of the girl in this sultry Sea Breeze novel from New York Times bestselling author Abbi Glines.

Cage York finally has everything he ever wanted.

And Eva is at the very top of that list;the perfect girl with a temper as hot as her fabulously flawless body. But for Cage, a baseball scholarship has always been a close second. So when Cage finally gets his chance, he and Eva must endure a long distance relationship and all the dangerous temptations that come with it. Temptations that former bad boy Cage York may not be able to escape.

Then after receiving some illicit photos that show Cage has been behaving bald, very badly, Eva finds solace in the comforting arms of her insanely attractive neighbor Jeremy, who vows that he will take care of Eva in ways Cage never could. It's an offer that may be too good for Eva to turn down.

Readers fell for Cage York and Eva Brooks in While It Lasts, and now it’s time to fall in love all over again as their story continues, and concludes in Sometimes It Lasts, the fifth installment in Abbi Glines sensual and highly addictive Sea Breeze series!

I’ll be honest, even though I’m always ecstatic to read a new Abbi Glines tale, prior to reading Sometimes It Lasts I kinda thought another book featuring Cage and Eva was unnecessary. I mean, with all the amazing characters to choose from, surely there was someone else deserving of a feature book in this series. We’d read Cage and Eva’s tale already; we didn’t really need another story of theirs. And yet, now having finished this book I can see why Cage and Eva needed Sometimes It Lasts and that their story wasn’t really finished….until now.

Cage and Eva have had one of the hardest journeys of all the characters in this series. Sure, almost all the couples have had tremendous hurdles to overcome, but none quite as so as Cage and Eva. In Sometimes It Lasts, Abbi Glines continues to tell their story in her trademark sensual and sexy way, depicting a lot of emotion, heartbreak and loss along the way.

Sometimes It Lasts features the next stage in Cage and Eva’s lives and while they soar together in the beginning, they fray in the middle with insecurities, betrayal and pain something Glines makes them face, only to have them reconnect at the end as we always knew they would. It’s a hard journey with a lot of angst and drama, but they get there in the end as their unwavering love for one another help them overcome their issues and heartaches.

As always I love Cage---how can you not! And I adore him and Eva together. Both make mistakes and allow their feelings and insecurities to wreck their relationship, but as their situation changes thanks to the heart-breaking loss of a loved one and the promise of a new life, Cage steps up and Eva manages to let him in once more….setting them up for their HEA and their forever.

I adore the fact that all the previous characters from the series as back as usual! There’s something so addictive about the dramatic lives of the characters that feature in this series. It’s just so juicy and emotional to witness and so, so good. Personally I’m really hoping to see some happiness for Jeremy, the twin brother of Eva’s late love and the person who has stood by her through it all. Whether Abbi Glines chooses to give him a full length novel or not, I still believe that readers deserve to see Jeremy find the woman who completes him.

Lush and deliciously written, Sometimes It Lasts concludes Cage and Eva’s storyfor now, but leaves me ready for many more amazing novels in this series. Abbi Glines is a master at creating angst and weaving it together with emotion and fantastic characters and I for one am ready for more!
