Released : Available Now
Details: Kindle , 188 Pages

RATING: 5 RUSH STARS!

Blurb: 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.



Okay, before I start, I was just speaking to publisher and Fallen Too Far has a 4 Chilli rating. So it is New Adult, but there are stickers here in Australia on Abbi's Sea Breeze series and Too Far series and the number chilli = how saucy the read is. Sea Breeze is a number 3 = Definitely Saucy. So when you are purchasing and you see the little chilli sticker with a number on it. That is how hot the book is in the smexi department.



BOOK REVIEW by Michelle: 

Simon & Schuster - 4 Chilli Rating = Seriously Hot
Look for the sticker on the book

Abbi, Abbi , Abbi.... you sure know how to put sizzle in between the pages.

OMG!!

I thought Sawyer got me getting the jet fan out in The Vincent Brothers, but RUSH ...... lordy, lordy, lordy!

“Blaire, I’m not a romantic guy. I don’t kiss and cuddle. It’s all about the sex for me. You deserve someone who kisses and cuddles. Not me. I just fuck, baby. You aren’t meant for someone like me. I’ve never denied myself something I want. But you’re too sweet. This time I have to tell myself no.”

YOWZER!!!!

Blaire is your Southern gal, all the way from Alabama, nothing but her truck, her gun, $20 bucks in her purse and a suitcase.

Sounds like a Taylor Swift song in the making.

“I’m from Alabama, I own boots, tight jeans and a gun,” I replied with a wink.

Destination... Florida, to stay with her loser of a father until she can get on her feet. She knows nothing of her father’s new family, but she is about to find out.

The hard way.

Enter Grant, love the lad. He is sooo nice. 

But he isn’t Rush.

“Ignore the hormone ridden idiot at the bar. That’s Will. His mother and Georgianna are sisters. So in some screwed up roundabout way he is my younger cousin. He showed up here last night after running away again for the hundredth damn time and Rush called me to come get him and take his crazy ass home.”



“Now, you’ve gone and done it. I better get him out of here before he falls anymore in love,” Grant replied, taking the cup he’d just filled up with coffee. He headed for the door saying, “Come on Will before I go wake up Rush and you have to deal with his ornery ass.”


Rush , what can I say, this lad is the bad boy, he has a sister who is an uber bitch, there are secrets.

BIG secrets.

Blaire's father has the world reining title for most  'selfish dickhead,' and Abbi infuses a little Harry Potter into her story. Well, kinda J

“I don’t want you under those damn stairs. I hate it. But I can’t move you up here. I’ll never be able to stay away from you. I need you safely tucked away,” he said without looking back at me. His hands gripped the railing on the staircase until his knuckles turned white.

Blaire is this sweet girl who has had it hard, she had to take on her father’s role when her mother was ill. She sacrificed a social life, missing out on things she should have been doing with her friends back in Alabama. Coming to Florida, she is met with disdain and mockery, but she holds her head high and people like Woods who started off, maybe being the sleazy character, turn out to be okay guys.

Jimmy is a hoot, love his caring attitude with Blaire.

Lordy does Abbi write sizzling Rush scenes. The lad is the son of a rocker and he works it like a pro. There are layers to him, which I liked discovering. There is a facade there, but under it, he is more.

Much more.

“I don’t need designer things. Any YOU are designer, Rush.”

“I’m not designer. Get that through your head. I can’t touch you. I want to so damn bad it hurts like a motherfucker but I can’t. I won’t mess you up. You’re ... you’re perfect and untouched. And in the end you would never forgive me.”


“I’ve been with a lot of girls, Blaire. Trust me, I’ve never met one as fucking perfect as you. The innocence in your eyes screams at me. I want to peel every inch of your clothing off and bury myself inside you but I can’t. You saw me tonight. I’m a screwed up sick bastard. I can’t touch you.”

“You don’t want to know me. You think you do but you don’t. I promise.”



“You aren’t what I expected. I wish you were. It’d be so much easier,” he said in a low voice then dropped my hair then turned and walked away. 



He muttered a curse then glared up at the sky a moment before looking back at me. “There are things about me you don’t know. I’m not one of those guys you can wrap around your finger. I have baggage. Lots of it. Too much for someone like you.”


He closed his eyes and took a deep breath. “I’ll be your friend. I’ll try my damnedest to be your friend but I have to be careful. I can’t get too close. You make me want things I can’t have. That sweet little body of yours feels too incredible tucked underneath me,” he dropped his voice and lowered his mouth to my ear, “and the way you taste. It’s addictive. I dream about it. I fantasize about it. I know you’ll be just as delicious in ... other ... places.”

Rush is one of those characters , when he opens his mouth every sentence is a quote.

Every time the author steers Blaire away from Rush, we are turning the pages as we want Blaire to be steered back towards Rush. We want to see the son of a famous rocker learn from Blaire.

I gave this book 5 stars because I loved watching Rush and is inner fight to do the right thing with Blaire when he felt he was so much the wrong thing. He looks all perfect and pretty , but he has flaws that even he is just discovering.

Sweet , innocent Blaire knows how to turn up the heat and blossom like a spring flower before our eyes.

But,  are the secrets locked tight,  about to ruin everything Rush has just found?


I have a real soft spot for Grant, but Rush....well, he is a real rush on your emotions.

  3. Abbi Glines has done it again! This was just as good as the first two. I could not be happier that she wrote a third book for Blaire and Rush. This is a must read!
