The Good: The premise is a good one, tried and true. Sweet girl falls for the bad boy. She’s a virgin, he’s a womanizer. She’s naïve, he’s the bad boy. She’s pure, he’s tainted. She’s open, he’s got dark secrets. It’s a trope that works (the old spin on the Cinderella story we all love, except prince charming has tats and a tongue stud) and there’s nothing wrong with this version of it so to speak. The setting improves upon it, as I love a good beach romance. Our heroine, Blaire, is pleasing as she’s mature for her young age. I would have loved her more had her actions matched her words (she THINKS the most amazing, strong thoughts). She’s also responsible and tidy. Good lead female to start with.
The Bad: The story is sloppy and not well written. Like how is Blaire a “farm girl” just because she’s from Alabama? Her life was not on a farm or even close to it (or if it was, it’s never mentioned… her memories seem suburban with scooters and such). She says she’s never seen the ocean, and is in awe of it, but she lived in a coastal state (Alabama) and is clearly within a couple hours of Rosemary Beach, FL to boot. What was the deal with her pulling a gun on people and referencing it all the time--what type of nineteen-year-old girl does that and why is she so jumpy? Why is Rush so tortured and dark? He’s a cliché character but without cause or reason-he’s never suffered through any major hurt that I can see so what’s his problem? The beach setting is awesome but it’s barely there and not a part of the story itself. Blaire goes to the beach just the one time in the story and it may as well not exist otherwise. At one point Blaire tells a friend she will pay him back for gas after she gets her first check though she thought to herself pages earlier that she had all this hundreds of dollars in her pocket from tips (since when do waitresses make money off checks?). She tells a friend she’ll bring her out for the night, then invites a guy along, then abandons her friend immediately. People constantly show up behind or in front of the heroine randomly, and just when they should, to keep the story going. She can be anywhere… the store, at work, at a cemetery… and someone will just pop up and know she was there and start talking to her--usually from behind her shoulder. Weird. Just a sloppy choppy mess. I just don’t think this is good writing. There are so many plot holes, contradictions, and inconsistencies here, I could go on and on.
The Ugly: I didn’t love the twist of the story, which unfortunately I can’t comment on without revealing major plot spoilers. But it’s major weird, beyond far-fetched, and hardly explained. But continuing from the good (above), our heroine is a strong thinker, but constantly thinks one thing than does another. I didn’t like that Blaire, who is a strong and intelligent, can’t think straight around Rush just because he’s got a sexy chest. The hero doesn’t even try to win her or impress her. He’s mean to her even and has sex with other girls in front of her, but it’s acceptable solely because he’s good looking. I really, really, really dislike this concept. It’s disgusting. Meet Rush the “hero” as moody, sullen, spoiled, womanizing, slutty, cold, wasteful, thoughtless, dumb, gaping, sleazy, mean, selfish, a trustfund baby… he has absolutely no redeeming qualities that make sense. He’s not even good at talking dirty. He’s not even alpha? I don’t get it. There’s little character development in the story, so I don’t believe his evolution. This couple is so overrun with lust that they ignore basic protection and common sense. And then… the worst. The cliffhanger ending is not tolerable when you discover that there are three more sequels after this one. And I don’t mean sequels about other characters—there are three about THIS couple. Oh my. Like I want to dish out $20 to read about these two. I despise the concept of the cliffhanger ending as it feels like a way to make money off people. But to really think I would read three more of these (about Blaire and Rush? See above… why would I want to spend more time with these people)? THREE MORE? Ugh. This is the last cliffhanger I will ever read. I know it’s not for me. When I finish a romance novel, I want an HEA.
Blaire is the narrator in this book, and this is her story. I really liked how her, but she suffered a horrible loss in such a short time. When she tries to look for help from her father until she can get back on her feet, but he is not there when she gets to Rosemary Beach. You just feel bad for her. Her story is beautiful and connect with her as a character. Then she meets Rush.
Like any Abbi Glines book the girls are tough and sometimes fall in love with the boys right away but she can for sure write about men. Rush is hot, sexy and it did take me a while to like him but he immediately warmed my heart. Rush is a very complex character because he is the son of a rock star. He loves his family and can be very passionate. The relationship that Rush and Blaire have is even more complicated than any other books I have read but these two have some series heat and there is some hot scenes in this book!
The supporting characters even have a lot to say in Abbi's books and I fell in love with Grant (Thank You Abbi for giving him a book!) All her secondary characters are ones to fall in love with because they have their own story! Nan is so evil, even being Rush's sister but she is so bad. Different than her Sea Breeze series you can really see the story come to life when reading.
Fallen Too Far is one of my favorites by Abbi and I cannot wait until the next book (already read) because its swoon-worthy romance and great characters really makes you love this book! If you haven't read any of Abbi Glines books pick them up immediately because they are addictive!!
