Fallen Too Far by Abbi Glines

Sunday, December 30, 2012
 Synopsis: 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.

Review: While I enjoyed reading Fallen Too Far by Abbi Glines, for the most part, there were some things that I definitely didn't like. One of my biggest complaints about this book is the lack of character development. Although it's great to have great main characters you can't leave your other characters high and dry. For me, this was the case with Fallen Too Far. From Grant to Woods to Nan to that girl that works with Blaire (whom I can't even remember her name because she didn't leave a lasting impression on me other than dang, she just spreads her legs for everyone).

The characters who left impressions on me they weren't always great. Rush is kind of a manwhore and it stills confuses me as to why Blaire is attracted to him. It actually seems kind of shallow considering he's a total ass in the beginning, and his looks and body seem to be the one thing that draws him to her.

I did enjoy the twist within the story and I felt that that was probably the thing that saved this book for me. It definitely leaves you with a dramatic build up. Unfortunately, that also means a cliffhanger. While I'm glad that Glines didn't wrap everything up with a pretty bow in the last 10 pages. I definitely think there needed to be some more answers to the many questions I was left with. It will be interesting to see how Rush redeems himself in the following book and how long it will take Blaire to come running back.

Overall, the story did have some great steamy scenes and naughty dialogue. I may be tempted to read book 2 but I definitely think Glines needs to step up her game and flesh out those other characters. No one likes paper cutouts.
