The backstory that fans have been clamoring for - how Rock and Trisha fell in love - is the final installment in the sizzling Sea Breeze series. Trisha Corbin always knew how to hide a bruise. And as long as it meant her momma's boyfriends wouldn't go near her little brother, Krit, it was worth it. But dreaming that Prince Charming would ever rescue her was pointless. Rock Taylor always had a plan - a football scholarship for a major college team was within his reach - if he didn't let anything get in his way. But he'd never factored in trying to score a date with Trisha, the hottest girl in Sea Breeze. She was every man's walking fantasy, and she wouldn't even glance his way. But when he finds her beaten and bruised, Rock knew his life was about to change and that he'd do anything to save Trisha Corbin, and keep her safe.This special conclusion to the Sea Breeze series also contains the wrap-up stories of all your favourite Sea Breeze couples - the steamy romance won't stop until the very last page!
If you are a fan of Abbi Glines’ Sea Breeze series, Until the End is a book not to be missed. Starting with the story of how Sea Breeze favourites Trisha and Rock fell in love, Until the End goes on to conclude the series perfectly with epilogues from all the previous novels in the series.
Trisha Corbin has not lead a perfect life. The highlight of her day is school lunches because it might be the only food she sees all day. Stuck in a familial situation she can’t escape, Trisha just wants to keep her head down and graduate so she and younger brother Krit can someday escape. Rock has been captivated by the quiet girl who has no time for him since the first time he laid eyes on her. Not wanting to get into anything with the star football player, Trisha agrees to be friends with Rock but it doesn’t take long for feelings of friendship to evolve into something more.
I’ve not read all the books in the Sea Breeze series but now having read their epilogues, I intend to go back and read them as soon as possible. Abbi Glines is good at what she does. Some of these books do tend to feel reminiscent of previous ones she has written but there are subtle differences to all of them. If you are looking for a steamy, romantic read with bad boy leads and starting ladies who tame them – look no further than the Sea Breeze series.
Trisha and Rock’s story may not be long but I enjoyed how it unfolded. Mixed together with flashes from their present day, Trisha and Rock reminiscent on together they fell in love and created a family together. It’s sweet. It’s romantic. And it was a great way to cap the series off. We get to see how far they have come and also how everything started. I found it more relatable and romantic than the other books I’ve read in this series and enjoyed how the relationships developed over time. The friendship between the two of them was beautiful to read and different from other couples in the series.
I don’t want to say too much about the epilogues for the other books because I don’t want to risk spoiling anything but I thought they were a nice touch. Just because couples had their happy ending doesn’t mean everything plays out happily ever after. But don’t worry – things work out for everyone in the very end.
I recommend Until the End to fans of entertaining and romantic new adult novels. Rock and Trisha are likeable and endearing characters who are both believable and flawed. The epilogues are a great way to wrap up the series and lovely to see how everything plays out for favourite couples of previous books.
