Wow, just WOW...,
This review is from: Fallen Too Far (Kindle Edition)
Fallen Too Far had me falling too hard for Rush.
19 year old Blaire Wynn's life hasn't been easy. By the start of the book she's lost her twin sister and her mum and it's been 5 years since her dad walked out. Now he's the only one who she can ask for help when she's left alone in the world. So she drives the 500 miles from Alabama to Florida only to find that he couldn't care less and not only is he not there when she arrives but he's not even in the same country. Instead she finds Rush, her step-brother, and all-round arrogant douche, who is less than welcoming to her. Her plan, her only option now, is to stay with her dad until she makes some money to take care of herself. With him not being there and Rush being so unwelcoming that plan's now ruined. So why is Blaire immediately attracted to Rush? Why can't she get him out of her head? And just what is it that's stopping him from getting close to her and acting the way he is towards her?
Blaire is a sweet, innocent girl who's been through so much. She's naive to the new world of money that she finds herself in, but she's also a tough cookie who's used to taking care of herself. Now she deserves someone to love her and look after her with all that she's been through.
Rush is the son of a rock star. He has money, influence and above all else experience, lots of experience, with lots of different women. He uses women and spits them out. But Blaire, well, she affects him and he's made it his mission to stay away from her. He knows she's different from his other women and plus, he knows something she doesn't, something he's not about to share with her, so getting close to her would be a bad, bad idea.
So, what did I think of Fallen Too Far? I absolutely LOVED it! Wow, just WOW! Abbi Glines is one of those authors who's books you can just pick up and know you're going to love. Her female characters are sweet, her male characters are sexy and *those* sorts of scenes are just H.O.T!
I loved Blaire. She was the kind of girl you just want to be friends with. She's good hearted, sweet and doesn't complain even though she's been through some rough cr*p in her life. The way she is beyond grateful to be living under the stairs, a la Harry Potter, just sums her up. It's a bed that she needs and she'll take it.
To begin with I hated Rush but I think that's kinda the idea. he's cocky, arrogant, and cruel. He has the looks and money to get his way whenever he wants it. Meeting Blaire knocks him for six and suddenly he wants more in life. He wants HER. By the end of Fallen Too Far I had fallen for Rush. He was just too sweet.
Fallen Too Far has a great cast of supporting characters. Grant and Bethy were my favourites. Even though I knew this was Blaire and Rush's story I was rooting for Blaire and Grant right at the start. Woods was also a sweet guy, one I wasn't too sure of at first, but one who was there for Blaire when she needed him. Bethy was just hilarious and she was the perfect friend for Blaire. Georgianna, Nan, Laney and Abe were all just awful, the real bad guys of the story. I just couldn't like them, but that was the point.
The last 15% was just heart-breaking to read. I wanted to reach in a hug Blaire so hard. And Rush? The poor guy was devastated by the events of this final part. I was definitely surprised by the ending. While I knew before the final chapter that things were going to be hard to wrap up so soon I never expected a cliff-hanger ending and another story! March 2013 cannot come soon enough for me to read Never Too Far!
So, after I've rambled on, all that's left for me to say is ... READ THIS BOOK!
