Abbi Glines – Sea Breeze Series Reading Order

by Maryse on August 9, 2012 · 15 comments

in Reading Order Guide:

Highly recommended by many fellow readers. It starts off with more of a YA feel (I read “Breathe” and enjoyed it’s young adult sweetness), but it appears the series takes a more “new adult” turn as it progresses (which I think I will connect to, even more). So many recommendations, and here are a few of the latest:

Tiffany: While it Lasts by Abbi Glines was soooooo GOOD!!! It was sweet and HOT for a YA read!! Im talking HOT!!! Im gonna read Because of Low now!! Should have read it first but YA books are not a first Pick for me, but if it is anywhere near as good as While it Lasts, I will be a Happy Camper!!!

Amanda: It’s not really YA. I think it’s more New Adult but Abbi said on her facebook she considers it Adult for language reasons and steamy steamy scenes =] great great read!

Kristin: Yes…actually, Breathe is the first, then Because of Low then While it Lasts. They get progressively steamier! All 3 books relate…characters from Breathe are in Because of becomes the main character…same with While it Lasts…Cage is in Low, but becomes the main character. Breathe was good but very young adult. Because of Low gives you insight into Cage…and it really is a good book…but While it Lasts definitely is the steamiest of the bunch…

About book #1:

Sadie White’s summer job isn’t going to be on the beach life-guarding or working at rental booths like most kids her age. With her single mother’s increasing pregnancy and refusal to work, Sadie has to take over her mother’s job as a domestic servant for one of the wealthy summer families on a nearby island.

When the family arrives at their summer getaway, Sadie is surprised to learn that the owner of the house is Jax Stone, one of the hottest teen rockers in the world. If Sadie hadn’t spent her life raising her mother and taking care of the house she might have been normal enough to be excited about working for a rock star…

Love this series that I found from your blog. :-) Abbi Glines writes really relatable characters. So glad she wrote Cage’s story.

Quick question
Sea Breeze series : breathe and because of low? Is while it last the next pArt or are they separate books?

I havent read Breathe but I fell in love with Cage in Because of Low and even mentioned how much I wanted a book with him. Couple months later I am reading upcoming releases and see the name Cage and flipped! I really liked While it Lasts and honestly cant decide which one I liked better!

I liked Because of Low, but knew the twist from the beginning details so it had me frustrated to know what would come in the end. I loved While it Lasts! Two people different worlds, not communicating those feelings but yearning for each other. The make out scences are a lot more descriptive in this compared to the other books. Cage is a hot bad boy that you will love!

I read them in complete opposite order. It probably would have taken me a very long time to continue if I had started with Breathe. I am glad I read it though, think it’s a fabulous commendation for my teen daughter – Breathe ONLY. Love Abbi’s work – I’m looking forward to more from her. Imho – While it lasts is the *squeeing*est

Hello!! Even if I am not an YA, i recently read BREATH and I loved it! I would like to very much know what has happened with Sandie/Jax relationship, can anyone, who read the following books can let me know if there any reference to that in any of the books??? Thanks!!!

I bought Because of Low, Just For Now & While it Last at Big W (Australia) today. I looked on Abi’s website & it said she had rewritten Breathe to be more “adult” and it will be rereleased in June 2013.
I think I will wait to start reading the series until I get a copy of Breathe.
