Set in the steamy coastal Alabama town of Sea Breeze, an interconnected group of older teens hook up, break up . . . and much, much more.

Cage York has a free ride to college for baseball - or he did, until he got in trouble for drink-driving. Now he has to give in to his coach's demands and spend his summer baling hay. No hot babes in bikinis waiting to meet a Southern boy to make her vacation complete. Just him and the damned cows. Oh and an uptight, snarky brunette with the biggest blue eyes he's ever seen.

Eva Brooks planned out her life step by step when she was eight years old. Not once over the years had she lost sight of her goals. Josh Beasley, her next door neighbour, had been the centre of those goals. He'd been her first boyfriend at seven, her first kiss at ten, her first date at fifteen and her first tragedy at eighteen. The moment she'd received the phone call from Josh's mother saying he'd been killed along with four other soldiers just north of Baghdad, Eva's carefully planned life imploded in the worst way possible. Now she has to deal with the arrogant Cage York and his irritating smile.

But as the summer bailing hay rolls by, Cage and Eva learn that what they want (and need) may be something they never saw coming.

I read the first two books in the Sea Breeze series back in 2014, and have been meaning to read more, but haven’t found the time. I decided now was the time to get back into it, and I grabbed While It Lasts from the library. I have to tell you, Cage’s book is my favourite from the series so far! It was just what I needed too.

Cage had been sent to work at a farm for the summer by his coach after a DUI incident. He doesn’t want to be there but his scholarship is on the line if he messes up again. He didn’t expect to fall for his boss’s daughter, with her witty remarks, rocking body and who also seems to hate him.

The Prologue began from Eva’s perspective, and seeing her pour her feelings out like she did was heartbreaking. I could see why she wasn’t able to move on and she kept those she loved really close. But the more time she spent around Cage actually helped her open up. She didn’t let him in immediately, but over time she found it easier.

While It Lasts was a fun read and I really enjoyed Cage and Eva’s story. Cage slowly broke down Eva’s walls and they both grew better together. There were a few hard moments for them, but the chemistry between them was sizzling and they found it hard to keep their hands off of one another.

My favourite book of Abbi's to date is Until Friday Night, and Cage's story is rated right up there! I enjoyed the way Abbi told Cage and Eva’s story and I could fell the emotion and turmoil they were both going through. I’m pretty excited to continue the series now! That book is going to be hard to beat.

This is a two part tease. The first one is from Eva's perspective the second switches into Cage's. They are talking about his piercing... hot damn! 

“You really like that nipple piercing, don’t you?” he said in something close to a growl. “Mm—hmm, I’ve never seen one before. I like it a lot.”
“I'm not complaining. If it fascinates you that much, I’ll go get the other one done too.” His breathing was jagged.

“Can I watch you get the other one?” she asked, staring up at me with those eyes of hers through heavily lidded lashes. Damn. What had she just said? I couldn’t keep my train of thought straight.
“Huh?"I managed to ask.
She began placing small kisses around my pec. “Can I go with you when you get the other one done?” she asked with her lips against my chest.
“Baby, I’ll let you sit in my damn lap if you want to,” I replied.
