In my debut novel, Breathe, Sadie may have fallen in love with the teen rock star, Jax Stone, but readers fell head over heels for Marcus Hardy. This is his story…

Marcus Hardy had hoped to enjoy a year away at college while he put the summer he’d rather forget behind him. But instead, he’s jerked right back to the coastal town of Sea Breeze, Alabama due to a family crisis. His dear ol' dad found himself a girlfriend only a few years older than Marcus. So now his sister needs help dealing with their mother who is mentally falling apart. The only bright spot to returning is the fascinating red head who sleeps over several times a week. The problem is she's sleeping in bed with his new roommate, Cage York.

Willow “Low” Foster needs a place to live. Running to Cage’s apartment every time her sister kicks her out isn’t exactly a long term solution. Juggling her courses at the local community college and a part time job doesn’t produce excess income. But Cage has a new roommate and suddenly sleeping over at her best friend’s apartment isn’t such a bad thing. Not when she gets to see those sexy green eyes of Marcus Hardy’s twinkle when he smiles at her like he wants her there.
Even though Cage seems a little territorial where Low is concerned, Marcus finds time to spend with Low without upsetting his roommate. Cage may use his small college baseball star persona to sleep with every hot female in his path but he’s still under the disillusion that when he’s through sowing his wild oats, he’s going to marry Low. Marcus intends to change that assumption for both Cage and Low. Until his carefully laid plans come crashing down with a revelation he never expected. He’ll have to choose between Low or his family. Because once the truth comes out.... there’s no other choice.
After reading Fallen Too Far (Too Far #1) I had to dive right into another Abbi Glines novel. I decided to start with Because Of Low (Sea Breeze #2) as it had better reviews than Breathe (Sea Breeze #1). It is a 3 star - Liked It, but still not as amazing as Fallen Too Far (Too Far #1), 5 Star - Perfect.
Because Of Low was an enjoyable read and was good but it just did not Wow me. I liked the characters and Abbi Glines knows how to write a loveable and likable hero and heroine. I liked Marcus Hardy as he was a sweetheart. But that was about it. His character seemed to be on the softer side. He was a swoon worthy hero especially when he helped out Low with her niece but he just did not Wow me.
I loved Low’s character more. She was a strong will heroine who had to put up with her mean sister. I loved how she put her little niece first and the only reason she put up with her sister is because the love she has for her niece.
Now Cage is the one that got my attention and really made the book for me. Cage is Low’s best friend and her rock. His character was more intense than Marcus. I loved his alpha male attitude with a sweet side, especially when it came to Low. There is no love triangle. Cage truly believes that Low is the one he is going to marry. Has issues with his room mate Marcus falling for Low.
There is a huge secret that has to do with Marcus and Low but it is revealed early on and already knew what it was. The only problem Low and Marcus did not know. I was hoping it to be held out longer. When Marcus and Low have to deal with this new secret it is at times a little heartbroken. I was not always feeling the sexual tension. For a New Adult novel the sex scene was sweet.

I was not lost since I did not read Breathe (Sea Breeze #1). Abbi Glines does a great job continuing the story with Marcus from book 1 that I had a good idea what happened with him. Because Of Low is an easy read and read it in one sitting. I like it enough to continue with the series and excited Cage is up next in While It Lasts (Sea Breeze #3).
