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.

Ok I LOVED “Because of Low” I preferred it to Breathe. It was more of an everyday story, it had everyday dialogue, it was funny and *sigh* it was ALL about Marcus YUM!!!! I lost my heart to Marcus in Breathe, he was gentle, loving and super protective but he just grabbed it tighter in this one, he got all alpha and HOT..what a scrumptious bloke!!!
So the story begins when Marcus has to return home because his dog of a dad is cheating on his mum with a bit of fluff at work. Marcus is over Sadie now and trying to juggle studying with sorting out his family issues. He moves in with Cage (a sex-aholic who needs his own book btw Abbi Glines!!)through whom he meets the gorgeous Low. Low is a sweet girl from the wrong side of town with tons of family drama, this makes her have low self-worth and trust issues. Cage and Low have known each other since they were kids, looking out for each other growing up in a difficult environment and have this amazing special bond which I absolutely loved! My heart melted over Cage’s and Low’s friendship!!! But got to say Marcus not only melted my heart, he left it in a puddle on the floor!! I felt such an emotional attachment to the characters, they were very REAL to me cause of the excellent writing of A. Glines!!
So this is where the story begins with Marcus, Cage and the homeless Low….be ready for an emotional roller-coaster ride with a FAB twist in the end!!
