To want what you’re not supposed to have…
She is only nineteen.
She is his new stepfather’s daughter.
She is still naïve and innocent due to spending the last three years taking care of her sick mother.
But for twenty-four year old Rush Finlay, she is the only thing that has ever been off limits. His famous father’s guilt money, his mother’s desperation to win his love, and his charm are the three reasons he has never been told no.
Blaire Wynn left her small farmhouse in Alabama, after her mother passed away, to move in with her father and his new wife in their sprawling beach house along the Florida gulf coast. She isn’t prepared for the lifestyle change and she knows she’ll never fit into this world. Then there is her sexy stepbrother who her father leaves her with for the summer while he runs off to Paris with his wife. Rush is as spoiled as he is gorgeous. He is also getting under her skin. She knows he is anything but good for her and that he’ll never be faithful to anyone. He is jaded and has secrets Blaire knows she may never uncover but even knowing all of that…
Blaire just may have fallen too far.
I am an Abbi Glines fan and I had been eagerly awaiting the release of Fallen Too Far since some time now. It looked like a perfectly good new adult book which would make you sigh at the end of it with all the romance and leave you feeling content. It was all that and more. So much more. But it left me completely frustrated.
Blaire is a nineteen year old who's left her hometown in Alabama because her mother passed away to move in with her father and his new wife. She's naive and innocent and has no clue what lies in wait for her in her father's beach house along the Florida gulf coast. Here she meets her twenty four year old step brother Rush Finlay.
Like all Abbi Glines heroines Blaire was a super sweet one. She was innocent and kind and hard working. She just wanted to move on ahead with her life after the passing away of her mother and she was willing to work for it. She wasn't whiny or stupid. She worked with what she got and tried to make the best of her situation. This made her a really likeable character for me.
Then there's Rush. When we meet him at first he comes out as the jerk of the highest order. He goes out of his way to make Blaire uncomfortable. But soon he starts falling for her and it was so sweet to watch him helplessly fall in love with her. The romance was amazing with the right amount of sweetness and hotness.
But then Rush is keeping secrets from Blaire. Secrets which could destroy what they have. The end of the book is what left me completely heartbroken and frustrated. There is a hell lot of angst and drama which makes you feel Blaire's pain and her anger towards Rush and her father. The end was how it was supposed to be but it left me completely unsatisfied. But thankfully there is another book, Never Too Far which will be out in March 2013. Hopefully that book will give me the ending I want.
