BOOK REVIEW: Fallen Too Far by Abbi Glines (Too Far #1)

Publication Date: December 14, 2012
Synopsis (Goodreads):
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.


Wow! That was one hell of a cliff-hanger! With some tissues and puffy eyes, I can't tell you how much I want to read the next book now! I want Never Too Far, ASAP!!

I honestly didn't want the arrangement of Blaire and Rush. I even hated it all until I reached the last part of the book. I think that was the saving grace. So just read the last part. Haha! Just kidding. 

Blaire is as innocent as you could imagine. She has a very honest and true personality which I liked. She's tough and she knows how to handle guns, literally. I can't help but feel for her. Her mother died and she's left alone with no money and place to live in. Those people she expects to stay with her, left. I just can't imagine myself being on her shoes. If I were her, I would really lose myself. One thing that I just don't like is how fast she can be so attached to Rush. I know most adult contemporary books is like that but I just want some difference other than what's expected.

On the other hand, there's Rush. He's gorgeous as he can be but very mysterious. I can't understand him throughout the book except that last part. I really didn't get him at all. He's so hard to read that I wished he had his side of story. I want to be in his head and learn more about him.

I was really shocked on how the book ended. I was speechless! I didn't expect any of that from happening. I hate Rush for keeping a secret when it's Blaire's secret too. She has the right to know. They're so hard on Blaire I can't help but cry with her. 

If you want to be annoyed and cry some,try this one! An Adult Contemporary with a lot of secrets you definitely want to know!


Memorable Quote:

“Everyone always says that love was enough. It wasn't. Not when your soul has been shattered.” 

“You want to know what happened? YOU happened Rush. That's what happened.”

  1. I didn't like Abbi Glines Vincent brothers series, so you are not the only one on that, though I did love the Sea Breeze ones. Your are right, Fallen Too Far had really deep characters, they is no way that you won't like them. It is my fav AB reads, and I can't wait to read Never Too Far. Fab review :)
