An unexpected affair leads to mind-blowing harmony in this Sea Breeze novel from New York Times bestselling author Abbi Glines.

Jason is sick of living in his rock star brother’s shadow. So when he ships off to Sea Breeze, Alabama, he’s looking for a much deserved escape and a chance to blow off some envious steam.

Falling for the local bad girl was definitely not the plan.

But as the new duo enjoys some naughty fun in the Alabama sun, Jason learns that even though Jax is the musician in the family, he’s not the only brother who can rock someone’s world.

The Review: It's official! Abbi Glines NEEDS to write more bad girl stories like Misbehaving, because while I adore all her the other books, it was only time before I starting wanting more from the female leads in her stories and I have to say, that time had come. As much as I love the innocent virgin story, I did feel it was starting to get 'over done', so reading Misbehaving was a very refreshing and exciting read, because you just didn't know where the story was going to go.

Who would have thought little Jason Stone was hiding that hot alpha ego behind a clean-cut prep school boy look? Certainly not me, but he sure wasn't disappointing. If anything he surprised me. Tired of living in the shadow of his brother and tired of being forced into situations by his parents, Jason decides it's time to put his life in his own hands and live the summer in Sea Breeze, having fun and figuring out what he'd like to do. It's there that he meets Jess, the local bad girl things start looking up for Jason, because even though he knows she's the wrong type of girl for him, he can't keep away from her.

Like I said, Jason really surprised me. He was certainly not what I was expecting because he's always come across so sweet and....soft. Especially when he was dating Amanda, but in Misbehaving we see the real Jason. He's passionate, hot and even still sweet but more importantly, he's 100% an alpha when it comes to Jess (I know you guys will love that, I did, lol). These two together were steaming hot! Even though they had their issues to overcome, there's was like this cord that kept pulling the two of them together. No matter how much they fought it, they never won. Their connection was deep and while their families and friends might not have understood it, they sure did. Jess and Jason looked past everyone else opinions about themselves and each other, and figured out their own.

As much as I loved Jess and Jason, there are a few other characters that made me fall in love with this story and that was Jess's Mum and Krit. Two characters that this story needed and made me want more of them, especially Krit! Come on Abbi, write Krit's story!!! Please!

My only real complaint on the book is it just wasn't long enough and Jason's story felt a little unfinished. Jess's is tied up really good, but Jason's is still unsure. Like what happened with his mother and what did he plan on doing after College? We never really got the answers for them...and I'd like them. Otherwise, as normal, Abbi Glines does another fantastic job on another one of her books and she's definitely becoming my go-to author.
