My POV: Fallen Too Far by Abbi Glines

Fallen Too Far (Fallen Too Far, #1)
Kindle Edition
Published December 14th 2012 
 New Adult

 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.--Goodreads

I love reading about strong female characters and their journey to a HEA. Well this one doesn’t necessarily end as a HEA but I hope it will get there in the next books. But what intrigues me is the pushing forward through adversity. The hard life will keep pushing you down but it’s what you do to keep your head up and moving forward is what interests me. 

Nineteen year old Blaire has lost so much in just a short couple of years, her sister, her father, her mother and her home. The most infuriating thing is that her father left by choice once her twin sister died five years ago and was never heard from again even when Blaire’s mama got sick and died. Now that she finds herself all alone with no home she is forced to ask her father for a temporary place to stay for a short while until she can get on her feet. But the situation she finds herself in is more that any one should deal with after what she has already been through. Secrets, degradation, and humiliation surround her every day. The one person that gives her some kind of happiness is Rush. But he too has secrets of his own.  Ones that may very well destroy everything they have together.

Rush Finlay is the only child of the famous drummer for Slacker Demons, Dean Finlay and step son to Abe, Blaire’s father. Hottie, playboy, big brother Rush has always taken care of his younger (half) siblings. Nothing has ever gotten in the way of that. Until now. By granting Blaire a place to stay while Abe is off in Paris with the new wife he may be letting in the enemy. This situation is so complicate it’s best if you just read the story. 

Fallen Too Far had me tied in knots the whole time. I could tell there was something not quit right with the situation Blaire found herself in but I never would have guest what is was. Thinking back to the story my heart still aches for Blaire. I need to see what happens next ASAP.  Abbi always has me begging for more. Sexy, heartbreaking, addictive! This is one of Abbi’s best. Don’t pass it up guys!

"Tight jeans, tank tops, and a gun. Damn, I've been living in the wrong fucking state."
"You don't want to know me. You may think you do but you don't. I promise." - Rush
"Everyone always said that love was enough. It wasn't. Not when your soul was shattered."

  1. I just got this one myself and after reading your review, I really want to get to it next! It sounds like it's going to suck me in with emotions and I like that. Although I don't like the idea of waiting to find out what happens next. :P In any case, great review! :)

  2. I love your review. :)
    My heart broke for Blaire too. It's really an amazing character with obvious strength from everything that happened to her but She's also sweet and naive and that's probably why it was so easy for me to understand her.
    And I love Rush! ;)
    I can't wait March. It's really one of the best I read written by Abbi Glines.

  3. Thank you for your most enthusiastic review. It seems that I must read FALLEN TOO FAR.
