REVIEW: Fallen Too Far
Too Far, #1
By Abbi Glines

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.

This is the first book I’ve read by Abbi Glines, but I’ve seen her books around so much, and I saw this review on another blog a few months back, so I put it on the list.  It took me a while to get to it, but once I started the story, I was hooked.  First of all, Blaire drives a truck and carries a gun in her purse.  I love Blaire.  I carry a gun on my purse too!  :)  I live in Colorado so pretty much everyone carries a gun in their purse. 
And Blaire actually pulls it out when some strange guy at her dad’s house scares her!  Needless to say, she scares the crap out of him!  Anyway – Blaire has a deadbeat dad, her mom just died, so she had to sell everything they had to pay medical bills and then take charity from her father for a while because she has nowhere to go.  Her stepfamily is loaded, one of them – the step-brother –is a rock star’s son and gets all the perks of a privileged life, meanwhile poor Blaire has to earn every stinking cent and feels compelled to even provide her own food while she’s staying with them because she has been taught to work hard and pay her own way.
I liked that a lot about Blaire.  Because not everyone feels this way about life, so it’s nice to have a character in a book acknowledge that hard work is a necessity.

Unfortunately, Blaire’s dad skips town with the new wife and is actually in Paris when Blaire arrives, so she’s stuck with nowhere to live.  Luckily, her “step-brother” Rush, the rock-star’s son, relents and lets her stay in the maid’s room since she’s off for the few weeks the “rents” are in Paris.  The maid sleeps under the stairs like Harry Potter.  Actually, it’s a closet at the back of the pantry, like the freaking “safe-room” the weirdo who built our house put in our basement, only worse.  Because when Blaire comes out in the morning, people are eating breakfast and she’s sleeping in the pantry.  LOL…that was a trip.

Anyway, Rush finally relents and lets her sleep upstairs in one of the MANY empty bedrooms with a view of the ocean.  What a guy.  I never really got the whole Rush attraction beyond the sex.  I can see that part, but he’s a real jerk.  He does change but he takes a little long and then all he wants is to ravish Blaire in bed.  That was fun, but shallow.
Most of the book revolves around Blaire’s work ethic, and that part I really did like.  Her first thought when she gets into town is to find a job and she does.  This girl is a hard worker – Rush does not deserve her.  I loved Blaire but I don’t feel the relationship so much.  I hope there’s a serious love triangle in the next book, because even though I know she’ll stay with Rush, he’s the one for her and all, I’d like to see him sweat it when she gets a better offer.
All in all though, I liked the story and I’ll definitely read more from Abbi Glines.  She’s writes the hell out of a New Adult Romance.  :)
