Genre: New Adult, Romance
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 had fallen too far. I was in love with Rush Finlay.”
Now I can see why this book is everyone’s favorite. Fallen Too Far by Abbi Glines is something a romance reader could not easily put down. And I’ve just proved it. Boy, this book instantly hooked me right from the start– to the point where I’ve actually asked myself why I didn’t read it earlier.
What made it utterly great is that it’s simply an example of perfection in a contemporary romance book. The characters are simply likeable and adorable. I like everything between Blaire and Rush. They’re not perfect characters, they have flaws and everything but they totally get me. The good thing about these two characters is that they didn’t piss me off and make my eyes roll. And of course, they have a perfect, well-blended chemistry you can’t help but root for them together.
I also love the concept of this book. Although it’s most entirely about romance, it also tells about family conflicts and tear-jerking drama that by the way, sent me into such an emotional mess. Damn, this book literally made me cry.
And the ending– well, the ending is promising. The author really knows how to convince her readers to read the next book without exaggerating the ending. It worked, really. It worked. Because right now all I want to do is to read the next book!
My Rating for this Book: 5 Falling Stars!
