Goodreads Summary: 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 really enjoyed Fallen Too Far!  There were parts that made me so mad, especially in terms of the secrets kept, and there are definitely a character or two that I could not stand!  But…i think they were supposed to be that way…

Fallen Too Far is definitely addicting, and I loved the tension between Rush and Blaire.  I definitely felt for Blaire, who’s trying to fit into a world where there are rumors circulating about her, and secrets that no one wants to tell her.  At one point, I sort of managed to figure out what the secret was, but couldn’t completely pinpoint it until it actually happened.  I didn’t care if the secret was a little predictable, because I just wanted to know what it was after it being mentioned so much.  I also don’t blame Blaire for reacting the way she did, because I’d probably react the same way.  Well, not completely, but to a certain extent, I probably would.

Actually, if I paid a little more attention, I probably could have figured it out completely.  And no one wanting to tell her, because it wasn’t their secret to tell made me so angry, because they all had an idea, but it was infuriating that they didn’t tell her what rumors were out there.

Anyway: I’m not sure how I feel about Blaire and Rush.  They are definitely very different, and yet…they can’t stay away from each other. There is a certain something about them, but I don’t have strong feelings about them either way.  I’m hoping that they’ll grow on me in the next book.

Final Thoughts:

I really liked Fallen Too Far, and I’m officially an Abbi Glines fan after reading Fallen Too Far!  Rush and Blair didn’t quite click for me, and no one talking about secrets was a little irritating, but overall, things are complicated but complications are why this book was addicting!  Fallen Too Far gets 4 stars.
