Review: Until the End by Abbi Glines

Until the End
Author: Abbi Glines
Published: October 28th, 2014


The backstory that fans have been clamoring for—how Rock and Trisha fell in love—is the final installment in the Sea Breeze series from New York Times bestselling author Abbi Glines. And don’t miss the sizzling epilogue, where Abbi wraps up all the Sea Breeze couples’ stories!

Trisha Corbin always knew how to hide a bruise. With her momma's boyfriends unable to keep their hands off of her, she had no choice. And as long as it meant they guys wouldn't go near her little brother, Krit, it was worth it. But her days of dreaming that Prince Charming would ever come rescue her are far, far in the past.

Rock Taylor always had a plan. Through football, he would rise above the life he was born into. A full ride to play a major college team was within his reach -- assuming he didn't let anything get in his way. But scoring a date with the hottest girl in Sea Breeze was proving harder than expected. Trisha Corbin was every man's walking fantasy, and she wouldn't eve glance his way.

When Rock finally does get Trisha in his truck, it isn't for a date. It's because he picks her up on the side of the road, beaten and bruised and walking to the local hospital. Before Rock knows it, football is no longer his life. Trisha Corbin is. And he'll do anything to save her. And keep her.

In addition to Rock and Trisha's love story, this special conclusion to the Sea Breeze series contains the wrap-up stories of all your favorite Sea Breeze couples: Sdie and Jax, Marcus and Low, Cage and Eva, Preston and Amanda, Jess and Jason, and Krit and Blythe, and Dewayne and Sienna. The last steamy romance won't stop until the very last page!


The ending of this series was so bittersweet. Breathe was the first book I read by Abbi Glines and I’ve followed this series all the way through. To say I loved this book would be an understatement. I couldn’t put this book down. Abbi Glines did not disappoint at all with this final chapter. The emotions throughout left you wanting more and more. Ending this series with Rock and Trisha’s story was the best thing to do.

This story started with Rock and Trisha. Trisha and Krit (her brother) live in a shell of a home. Worried for their well-being, Trisha made sure that her brother could have what he needed before doing things for herself. She cared more for his well-being than her own. Trisha always tried to stay in the shadows, not drawing attention to herself; however, Rock always saw her. He made it a point to see her.

Rock knew there was something about Trisha that he just needed to be a part of. Rock was always disappointed that she turned him down, but when he finally learns about her home life from her brother Krit, things change. Rock makes it his business to protect her. He makes sure that she is taken care of. What we learn about in their story is how rough his home life was. We learn what he really threw away by taken care of Trisha, but you wanna know what? He didn’t care. He knew that Trisha was it for him. He went above and beyond to make her life better. He was the hero she was waiting for.

After learning of Rock and Trisha’s story, we got a small epilogue for every couple in the Sea Breeze Series. I thought these were a great addition to the end of this story. It helped to add a little bit more to the existing couples and where they were now. It let us see how they were after ‘growing up’. I had many favorite parts in this book. My absolute favorite… the final two words from the last epilogue. All one could hope is that it means what we may think it means!

After finishing this book, I had a to take a few days to think: "Wow... what a magnificent ending". This series is a must read and anybody would be able to fall in love with these characters. All of these books are easy reads and you won’t be disappointed at all.
