Until Friday Night Abbi Glines read online review & book description:

A #1 New York Times bestseller and the first novel in a brand-new series—from bestselling author Abbi Glines—about a small Southern town filled with cute boys in pickup trucks, Friday night football games, and crazy parties that stir up some major drama.

To everyone who knows him, West Ashby has always been that guy: the cocky, popular, way-too-handsome-for-his-own-good football god who led Lawton High to the state championships. But while West may be Big Man on Campus on the outside, on the inside he’s battling the grief that comes with watching his father slowly die of cancer.

Two years ago, Maggie Carleton’s life fell apart when her father murdered her mother. And after she told the police what happened, she stopped speaking and hasn’t spoken since. Even the move to Lawton, Alabama, couldn’t draw Maggie back out. So she stayed quiet, keeping her sorrow and her fractured heart hidden away.

As West’s pain becomes too much to handle, he knows he needs to talk to someone about his father—so in the dark shadows of a post-game party, he opens up to the one girl who he knows won’t tell anyone else.

West expected that talking about his dad would bring some relief, or at least a flood of emotions he couldn’t control. But he never expected the quiet new girl to reply, to reveal a pain even deeper than his own—or for them to form a connection so strong that he couldn’t ever let her go…

    I love to read books like this and this was by far one of my favorites. It was written so well and it appealed to all kinds of emotions. It was so good!!! Great job but I only have one question. When Maggie went to visit her mom’s grave Brady had mentioned to West that her dad had left her a note but the note wasn’t mentioned after that. Did she ever get it?

    Great book, didn’t want to put it down!!! This book has likable characters and the story seemed to flow good, I really liked how the author told both sides to the story by flipping between the characters, Can’t wait to read the other two books in this series.

  • Unfortunately, this was a miss for me

    By Bookbruin
    I've read a few other Abbi Gline's books and enjoyed those, but this one was unfortunately a miss for me. Until Friday Night followed her usual MO, but I just could not bring myself to care about the two main characters, Maggie and West. Maggie could have been a pretty great character, but her relationship with West became her only focus and it was all a bit too much. I liked that she called him out later about using her as an emotional crutch/being dependent on her, but I felt like her character just got completely lost in all of the West madness. Speaking of West, his cave man behavior and attitude was just plain terrible. His relationship with Maggie is completely obsessive and he treats her like a possession. All of the posturing and marking his territory was over the top. Maggie couldn't even talk to another guy without West losing his mind and the whole freak out about Maggie wearing Brady's jersey vs. his jersey was just awful. He's her cousin!! Where to begin about the secondary characters? All of the boys in this book have had their way with any girl they've wanted because they're football gods in this small town and none show any remorse for treating girls that way. The girls are also terrible though, and every single one is portrayed as a slut or a threat to Maggie/West. I knew this would be the case since it's like this in most of the author's books, but I was still surprised at how much it was shoved in the reader's face. I really would have liked to see Maggie have at least one friend that was a girl, instead of having her world revolve around West. I tried to find something redeeming in each of the characters, but in the end still came up short. I wanted a swoony (and I'll admit steamy) romance, but what I got was an after school special about obsessive and controlling relationships. I'm still giving the book 2 stars (maybe that's too much??) because I was interested enough to finish it and maybe check out the next book in the series, but I definitely liked her Sea Breeze and Rosemary Beach series better.
  • Friday Night Lights wannabe

    By silvertron
    This book shamelessly tries to remind us of Friday Night Lights, with the title, font of said title and the image used on the cover. But, this is nothing like the tv show or movie (or book). This is rife with cliches and bad writing.
