Loved? Hate? LOVED!

Would I recommend this book? YES.

Type of Book: New Adult

Synopsis:Fallen Too Far was Blaire's story. Now it's time for Rush to share his side.

Everyone in Rosemary Beach thinks they know how Rush Finlay and Blaire Wynn fell in love. But Rush is back to tell his side of the story...

Rush has earned every bit of his bad-boy reputation. The three-story beach house, luxury car, and line of girls begging for time between his sheets are the envy of every guy in Rosemary Beach, and Rush handles it all with the laid-back cool of a rock star’s son. All he needs are his best friend, Grant, and his sister, Nan.

Until Blaire Wynn drives into town in her beat-up pickup truck with a pistol under her seat. The Alabama farm girl instantly captures Rush’s attention once he discovers that the angelic beauty is his new stepsister, but he vows to keep his distance. Even if she needs his help. Even if he craves her.

Because Rush knows why Blaire is all alone in the world, forced to ask for help from the father who abandoned her three years ago. And he knows if he gets too close it will destroy Nan, who has a secret connection to Blaire.

He has every reason in the world to stay away from her. Find out why he doesn’t.


I was given an amazing opportunity to read Rush Too Far a month early! I entered a contest held by Abbi Glines herself, and we had to make a graphic with one of three quotes from the book, and I was one of two who won!! I was pretty shocked to say the least, because I never win anything!

Here is my winning entry!

After falling in love with the first book in the Rosemary Beach series, Fallen Too Far, I was really excited to read it from Rush's point of view!

I'm always afraid to read a book in another's perspective because sometimes I feel they're a let down, and I was just expecting way too much after reading the first. However, this was not the case for Rush Too Far! It made me fall even MORE in love with Rush than before - and I didn't think that was even possible!

When you're reading Fallen Too Far, you're obviously getting a very confused Blaire as she's trying to figure out what Rush is really like. He sends her a lot of mixed signals and basically whiplashes the poor girl without even meaning too. I took on her emotions while reading Fallen Too Far as well!

As a female, I understand how complicated our minds are. We over analyze every. little. detail. We overthink what every single action could mean, whether it be by how they say one word, or not say anything at all. Rush Too Far simplifies all of that down to the very last detail. Abbi Glines didn't leave one thing our for me!

The reason why I loved Rush Too Far so much, was the fact that I got to know rush SOOOO much better! Hence the reason why I love him so much more! Of course the other books in the Rosemary Beach series just make you fall head over heels in love with him, but there's something about reading the first book in his perspective. Getting to read the reasons why he did what he did makes you look at things in a new light.

HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone who loves New Adult books, and has a case of bad-boy-itis ;)
