Review: Fallen Too Far (Rosemary Beach #1) by Abbi Glines

Thursday, September 15
My rating:

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.

*****

Yep - loved it!

NA isn't normally my genre, but I knew based on the reviews I read that this was something I could get into.


- Blaire was a good'un. I loved that she was a sweet girl - looked after her dying mum, she'd been a good sister, a good friend, a good girlfriend, but she had kick. Kick in the form of a gun stashed under the seat of her truck, and not taking Rush's betrayal lying down. I didn't know this was part 1 of a 3 part story about this couple, so I was pretty sure she was going to suddenly forgive him and they would live happily blah blah. So when I actually got to the end I was shocked. Shocked, I tell you! And that shock was all. good.
- I liked the way the author built up the tension between the MCs. I wanted so badly to know 'the dirty secret' that was keeping Rush & Blaire apart, but I was so engrossed in the story that I didn't ruin everything and peek at the end. Quite proud of myself for that one, and it was well worth it.
- Abbi Glines builds intensity well, from the beginning of the book. She doesn't let up, and I didn't get bored. Despite currently having 6 books open at various stages, I read this one in one sitting and I was all in throughout.
- Also, AG managed to take a done to death storyline and inject it with something that made it fresh and interesting. That's a big feat, considering that anything that reeks of uber rich enigma boy meets virgin good girl normally has me cringing and desperately deleting it from my Amazon cart.

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

- God damned 3 book series' about one couple. I wish you wouldn't.
- Characters were obviously young - this is NA after all - but I didn't take a star off for that.


If you love NA, give this one a go. Awesome leading lady/girl, lots of tension, a bit of drama, and some pretty hot scenes. Having said that: Where have I been? When did step-sibling romances become a thing?
