Love for Fallen Too Far
Fallen Too Far by Abbi Glines
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
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.
4 Star Review
I like Blair - especially in the very beginning and the end. She is sweet but knows how to take care of herself. She took care of her sick mother for years prior to her death, alone. She has a great sense of responsibility and survival instinct. She is humble and doesn't realize her own beauty.
At first, I didn't really like Rush all that much. He is spoiled, rude, cold and a womanizing man-whore. In fact, it wasn't until much later in the book where I stopped disliking him, and grudgingly thought he was...ok. He was still an ass that didn't treat Blair right and was hiding major secrets. And it wasn't until the end of the book that I found myself willing to give him a chance, because I could see the real Rush behind the facade.
The story is rather addictive, in that I didn't want to put the book down until I finished it (in one day). Be warned that the love scenes are steamy and may induce a need for cold showers. There are sad events, moments of happiness, people you want to smack...repeatedly, twists & turns that you may not be expecting, love and heartbreak...and a little mini-cliffhanger ending (no, not enough to make you want to jump off said cliff...just enough to want to pick up the next book immediately!). What is not to love? Well, unless you count the wait for the next book to be released (Never Too Far - March 13, 2013). I for one will be putting it to the top of my To Read list!
