Review ~ About Tomorrow by Abbi Glines

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I’ve read several Abbi Glines books, and this one popped up on KU, so I decided I’d dive into this world. It began sweet, but a jump nine years into the future shows that Sailor and Creed are no longer together or had had contact for the past six years. I could see that there was still a connection between them despite how much had changed. As the story unfolded, things changed as Sailor moved into her grandmothers’ house and her boyfriend put her to the back of his mind as he studied hard for medical school.

Honestly, I know how important studies are for people, but if you also commit to a relationship, that person is just as important as your studies and your future. I actually felt sorry for Sailor as she became lonely as Griff would go days without contacting her, so I understood why she let Creed back into her life so easily. Creed and Sailor had suffered a lot in their pasts, and that connection brought them back together.

I did like this read, but the cheating aspect did annoy me a little and I would’ve liked them to work through the deeper issues better so that they were more committed to the relationship and each other. Insecurities led them to bake harsh decisions that almost derailed them. Overall, not a bad read, but not one of my favourite Glines reads.

About Tomorrow...

I close my eyes as I hear him speak. I take one very long and deep breath hoping to calm the immediate butterflies that take flight in my stomach and hope to slow down the racing of my heart. The voice was slightly deeper but the timbre was one that was achingly familiar.

My actions did little to help, but then who was I kidding? A deep breath wasn't going to fix the effect he had on me and my body's inevitable reaction. Even the memories that would forever haunt me couldn't keep my emotions from triggering at the nearness of him once again.

I used to pray that I'd find the strength to move on from him, from the pain that the end carried, from the emptiness in my chest, but ultimately move on from—the loss of Creed Sullivan and the death of his sister, Cora.

The Sullivans had been the best part of my summers in New England.

Deep down, I knew my ache for all that I had lost was the reason I returned...

But I hadn't expected to see him again—especially not like this.
