Where I Got It: The Publisher, Atria Books

Everyone in Rosemary Beach thinks they know how Rush Finlay and Blaire Wynn fell in love. But Rush is back to tell his side of the story...

Rush has earned every bit of his bad-boy reputation. The three-story beach house, luxury car, and line of girls begging for time between his sheets are the envy of every guy in Rosemary Beach, and Rush handles it all with the laid-back cool of a rock star's son. All he needs are his best friend, Grant, and his sister, Nan.

Until Blaire Wynn drives into town in her beat-up pickup truck with a pistol under her seat. The Alabama farm girl instantly captures Rush's attention once he discovers that the angelic beauty is his new stepsister, but he vows to keep his distance. Even if she needs his help. Even if he craves her.

Because Rush knows why Blaire is all alone in the world, forced to ask for help from the father who abandoned her three years ago. And he knows if he gets too close it will destroy Nan, who has a secret connection to Blaire.

He has every reason in the world to stay away from her. Find out why he doesn't.

When Abbi isn’t locked away in her office typing away she is hauling her kids to and from their many social activities. You could say her second job is the Glines Kids personal chauffeur. It’s a rather illustrious job.


I read this book on May 15th 2014.

I really enjoyed reading Fallen Too Far from Rush's point of view. However, a tip to readers of this book: I suggest you read the entire series then go back and read this book. I read Fallen Too Far then Rush Too Far and it just seems repetitive and it's probably much more enjoyable to read the series and see how it began once again.

I was really happy with the extra included scenes and thought that it was really nice to have an entire book dedicated to Rush's POV because I know that in some other books I read between a couple, there are scenes from, say her point of view and I want to read his to know what he's thinking so I thought it was nice to re-read and see how it happened from Rush's POV.

Moving on to the story: it was an interesting story and, yes I had said in my review for Fallen Too Far that I didn't like Rush much because I didn't know him well enough... this book changed my mind around completely! I fell head over heels for this man and wish only for the fact that there were Rudh Finlay's walking and talking on this planet.

I recommend this book to readers of Abbi Glines and the Rosemary Beach series.
