Review of Fallen to Far by Abbi Glines

Fallen to Far
Publisher: Self-Published (December 2012 )
Genre: New Adult
Format: Hardcover (207 pages)
Source: Purchased

 Rating 5/5

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 loved this book.  Abbi Glines really knows how to hit your emotional buttons. Blaire was a strong and likeable Heroine.  She has of the faults of youth but also a maturity that is believable.  Rush is of course your typical hottie with some major attitude and an all around bad boy.  What I really love about Fallen to Far is the emotional impact I got from this book.  I just couldn't wait to see what was going to happen with these two.   This is what I think of as a great summer read and I'm looking forward to the next book.
