Fallen Too Far introduced us to Rush Finlay, the gorgeous charming son of a famous rock star, and Blaire Wynn, the girl from Alabama who rode into Rosemary Beach, Florida, in a pick-up truck with a gun under the seat looking for her estranged father. United under one roof by the surprising marriage of their parents, Rush and Blaire couldn’t hate each other more. But it only took a summer to for everything to change…
Fallen Too Far was Blaire’s story. Now it’s time for Rush to share his side, and for readers to fall all over again!

Oh my god! I’m not going to lie I read this not once, twice but three times before finally writing this review. I left writing a review for ages after each read, as an excuse to have to read to again. (ssshhh!!)
Admittedly I actually didn’t enjoy this book as much as Blaire’s story but I can’t complain because any Rush action is good action, right?! Abbi Glines has the great ability to make your either really love or hate a character, there is no middle ground. I adore Rush (even through I’d love to punch him), so seeing his side to such a heartbreaking about beautiful love story was ever so good. It was like delving into his mind and discovering that all those things that he did that made him look like a jerk were just all of his little insecurities coming out to play and he was dealing badly.
I think Blaire and Rush’s story is a really genuine one and I’ll probably read it over another few times. I also absolutely love to hate Nan, I thought maybe seeing this side to the story would maybe help with sympathising with her but…nope (I actually hate her even more now).
All in all this is a quick read but most definitely a memorable one and a must for Rush Finley fans everywhere. New Adult is a genre that is a bit hit or miss for me with storylines all blending into one another but Abbi Glines proves every time that she is the QUEEN of NA! She totally rocks with her larger than life characters, seriously hot scenes and roller-coaster ride of emotions. I’ll prob read everything she ever writes! <3
