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…
Abbi does it again with a gripping storyline that is an emotional roller coaster that leaves you short of breath and begging for more! I have read several of Abbi’s books in the past and they have always been captivating. Fallen too Far was no excetption.
Fallen to Far is the perfect title because Darn it if I didn’t fall for Rush in just a few minutes… Well maybe a few Chapters…
From the start Blaire’s character grabbed at me, a small town beautiful girl that has been through WAY too much in recent days. When life throws lemons at Blaire she does the only thing you can and makes lemonade!
When Blair is force to leave her hometown after her mother passes away Blaire has to move to a new town with no friends and an estranged father she hasn’t seen in several years. When she arrives at her fathers new home she is quickly disappointed to find he isn’t there and she is none to happy about it. With no job and her father out of town she has to rely on the cocky, smart and beautiful Rush, who’s ever revolving bedroom door or should I say front door quickly disgusts Blaire. Rush is portrayed to be a spoiled brat and in some ways he is but there is a lot beneath the layers. As the story unfolds you find that Rush is more then just the playboy he appears to be.
Blaire is thrown into a life she doesn’t feel she belongs in and doesn’t fit into. The spoiled rich country club snobs sure do make her painfully aware of this. She is beautiful so immediately the men an drawn to her and the women detest her. In a world of the over privileged she is trying to establish a life for herself but quickly becomes smitten with her step-brother! Who could really blame her Rush puts the H O T in HOT! The twists and turns and the angst and tension between them is heavy… He wants her but knows he shouldn’t for reasons she doesn’t understand, she wants him but believes she isn’t worthy and doesn’t fit into his rich, privileged world.
Blaire is a strong character in this book, she doesn’t really realize her beauty and it is a charming quality. I found myself immediately liking Blaire’s take crap from nobody approach to life, she has been through to much to be pushed around. She has feelings and they get trampled several times throughout the book.
Rush is sexy and smart which takes a bit of time to uncover. In the beginning I was worried that he was just going to be another rich millionaire playboy but I found myself delighted in the fact that what you saw on the outside wasn’t what he had on the inside. He surprised me at times with his protective nature even though he was trying to play it cool.
Knowing as I was nearing the end of the book and that there was going to certainly be a cliffhanger I had to prepare the brain to realize that the end wasn’t the end at all but only the beginning of this story!
The BIG secret that was eluded to through the book wasn’t quite what I was expecting and I found myself pleasantly surprised when it final came out. It was an unexpected and delightful twist.
Abbi delights as always with her witty banter between characters, this book had just the right amount of angst, heart, laughter and tears… Her smooth writing and fantastic character development throughout the story, kept me on my toes and turning pages as quickly as I could go!
SOLID 5 stars on my scales…. This is a great read sure to delight Abbi’s fans and fans of this genre!
