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
He had held a secret that destroyed her world.
Everything she had known was no longer true.
Blaire couldn’t stop loving him but she knew she could never forgive him.
Now, she was back home and learning to live again. Moving on with life… until something happened to send her world spinning once again.
What do you do when the one person you can never trust again is the one that you need to trust so desperately?
You lie, hide, avoid, and pray that your sins never find you out.
These were the first contemporary romance books I had ever read and I fell in love with the genre. I also fell in love with Abbi Glines with these too books and you will see reviews for most of her books on here.
I read Fallen Too Far back during the holidays and fell in love with all the very dynamic characters in the book (and there are a lot of them). The story line is amazing, especially Blaire's struggle with her mothers death and fitting in with everybody in the snooty beach front town. Rush and his struggle with the family secrets and with his sister Nan. I thought it was an unbelievably well rounded and well written book and then I learned after a cliffhanger ending that I had to wait for the second book!
I read Never Too Far as soon as it came out in February. I once again fell in love with the characters, only there were a few new favorites added into the mix. Woods showed a different side of himself and I fell hard for his character. He was so worried and concerned it was charming. Bethy, became another favorite. She talked Blaire into moving back to Florida, gave her a place to stay and helped her through the initial struggles she had. Then once again you delve into Blair and Rush's newest struggles and well you just can't help but love them.
This book didn't have a cliffhanger ending but I was so hoping to read more about these characters that I visited Abbi's website to see what she had cooking. Not only did she have a third book in the mix but she was about to release a book all about Woods. She also has a book in the process about another character in these books, Grant, if I'm not mistaken. Needless to say that any book with these books characters are going to be good in my mind and so far she has not proven me wrong.
On a five star scale both books get five stars.
