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.

The Review: "Because I’ve had a taste and I’m not sharing. This isn’t just for fun. I may be slightly addicted.” -Rush

Over Christmas I went on an Abbi Glines kick, after reading the Vincent Boy/Brothers I went straight into Fallen Too Far. Good God this book is so fracking awesome! 

Abbi is a great writer, I'm not sure why no publishers have picked her books up yet, I guess they can't see a good thing when it's there staring at them in the face. Fallen Too Far, was a crazy ass rollercoaster of emotions, not just for the reader but for Blaire and Rush. Fallen Too Far is a book that gets you hooked from page one, gets you wrapped up in their story, gets you addicted. 

Abbi Glines has a great way of sucking you into her stories. Getting you addicted to the characters, wanting to be inside the story with them. The plot to this story was excellent, it's not just the little things on top, but it's everything else underneath that you don't see or don't have revealed until the very end. You feel the emotion deep down, you just can't get enough.  

The pace of the story was great, not too slow, not too fast it was just right (like a story book the 3 bears would describe). There was always something going on on every page of the book. You're right there feeling it, feeling everything. 

The ending to Fallen Too Far is a killer, it's not a huge cliffhanger, but it makes you want to cry along with Blaire and Rush. 

I do love Abbi Glines, and I've loved the 3 books I've read of hers so far, however I do think she may need to branch away from the innocent virginal girl and the bad boy and maybe swap it around. Just to make it fresh, just to let people know you can write more than just the same type of story.  I definitely think it's her best book so far. It's just very much on par with her Vincent Boys duo. I can never get enough of her characters. I think she will need to branch out and change it up at some point, but if she sticks to what she does best with the virgin girl and bad boy then I'd be happy. Having said that, if you like the innocent virginal girl and the angsty bad boy, then Abbi Glines' books are most definitely for you. I absolutely love them, I cannot get enough. I just don't want her to fall into the author trap of every story being similar. I think she has some amazing potential as a writer to do other stories and plot lines. I love that all her characters have issues and demons, and having double points of views are great!

I eagerly anticipate Never Too Far in March, because I want more. I know I'm NEVER going to be able to get enough of them.

I loved Fallen Too Far! I reckon it's Abbi's best book yet. (I think you're so right about how Abbi's stories are about the innocent girl and the bad boy - I still need to write my review but I was gonna say something similar in mine)


I loved how the twist was looming from practically page 1 and I was like "omg what is it?!" But like you said, the pace was wonderful so I wasn't ever bored or tempted to just skip to the end - no I had to read everything and it just built up the suspense. The twist was beautifully played!


Awesome review :D

I definitely think it's her best book so far. It's just very much on par with her Vincent Boys duo. Those three are probably some of her best book. I can never get enough of her characters. I think she will need to branch out and change it up at some point, but if she sticks to what she does best with the virgin girl and bad boy then I'd be happy. I just don't want her to fall into the author trap of every story being similar. I think she has some amazing potential as a writer to do other stories and plot lines. I love that all her characters have issues and demons, and having double points of views are great!
