Fallen too Far by Abbi Glines
Published: December 14th 2012
Goodreads: “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.”
This book is so beautiful in so many different ways; I thought this was going to be just another Abbi Glines’s book. I must say that although I really enjoy Abbi Glines’s books, most of them are the same, the only difference between the characters from her books are their names, the plot changes, not much, it is all too equal. As such, I didn’t think Fallen too Far would make me seriously fall in love with it. But, surprise, surprise, it did! The whole book is so intense, throughout the book I found myself laughing, crying, going all “awww”, falling in love bit by bit for the amazing male character Abbi created… Rush Finlay… *sighs*
Blaire has had a very sad story, her twin sister died in a car accident while her dad was driving. After her sister died, her dad ran away and got together with another woman. To make matters worse, Blaire’s mom finds out she’s got cancer, later dying. That’s when shit really hits the fan and Blaire is all alone, poor, with no money to pay for house or food, making the decision to move away and live with her dad and his new wife.
Once Blaire finds her dad’s new home, she meets Rush *swoons*
“Inside I knew he was meant to be the guy that taught me about life. Even if he broke my heart eventually.”
Ladies, just wanted to say that Rush is the man we’re all looking for… typical bad-boy, hot, rich, tattooed, sexy, sweet, handsome…ohh, also, he likes to talk DIRTY! I must admit I found myself all flustered because of his naughty words … OH DA FEELS!
Moving on, Rush acts like an asshole in the beginning because he misunderstands Blaire’s intentions, but after realizing that Blaire is a sweet, innocent girl, he changes his attitude towards her and helps her in any way he can.
Of course, this isn’t all hearts and flowers, there’s always some stupid b*tch trying to mess up things, in this book her name is Nan, Rush’s step-sister, and she hates Blaire’s guts. And, damn, Nan is so ANNOYING, I wish I could slap her face so hard!
Throughout the book you realize that Rush is hiding an important secret from Blaire, this secret is about him and Nan (I actually thought it was incest, but, happily, it was not, THANK GOD). This secret will only be revealed by the end of the book, and it’s a huge MINDBLOWN!!!
This book was very good, but the end is totally unsatisfying… After you finish it you just want to read the second one! I read this book right after it was released, so I had to wait for a while for the second one, making me go through a long period of suffering and angst!! Abbi Glines, sometimes you are so mean! 😉
I recommend this book to everyone who, not only likes Abbi Glines’s books, but also likes contemporary, romance (lots of it!), angst, and overall, a wonderful book that makes you feel as if you are one of the characters in the story.
