Pages: 247
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Age Appropriate: New Adult
When Blaire Wynn's mother passed away, Blaire's life changed in an instant. Having cared for her sick mother for the last three years, suddenly Blaire has to leave the small farmhouse in Alabama they shared, to move in with her father and his new wife in their sprawling beach house along the Florida gulf coast. But what she isn't prepared for is the lifestyle change that comes with the move, and she knows she'll never fit into the new world of luxury and extravagance that suddenly surrounds her. 
Even worse, her father has run off to Paris for the summer with his wife, leaving her stranded with Rush, her new stepbrother, who's irritating, arrogant and… seriously sexy. Rush is as spoiled as he is gorgeous; 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 knows he is anything but good for her, but somehow she can't fight the attraction she's feeling, especially when she starts to think the attraction might be mutual… Rush is jaded and has secrets Blaire knows she may never uncover but even knowing all of that Blaire just may have fallen too far.
My Thoughts.
Fallen Too Far is book one in the Too Far Trilogy/Rosemary Beach series by Abbi Glines.
Having absolutely loved Abbi's Sea Breeze series, I was beyond excited receiving a copy of this book for review.
And I have to say I love this series more, I didn't think I would but you see there's this character named Rush and well.......
Do I need to finish this sentence?
Anyone who has read this series will know exactly what I'm talking about, no explanations needed at all.
I'm really enjoying the New Adult genre, especially when it's done so well, and Abbi is a master of it, anything she writes I want to read A.S.A.P!
So the story goes, Blaire who has just lost her Mother to cancer arrives at her Father's house at Rosemary Beach, not wanting to be there (her Father ran out on Blaire and her Mother) she discovers that apparently neither did her Father, who chose to go on holidays with his new wife instead of being there to welcome her.
Instead she arrives in the middle of a party hosted by Rush a totally hot guy....and oh yeah he's her stepbrother too!
And so begins the tumultuous relationship that they share with one another and their mutual attraction that Rush seems to hide a whole lot better than Blaire can.
But Rush is hiding a huge and terrible secret that will drive these two apart if Blaire ever finds out, and it will leave her world shattered and she'll be questioning everything she ever knew about her family.
This was written so well, the twist was definitely not what I was expecting at all, kudos to Abbi for that, it was a jaw dropper for sure.
If you haven't picked up this series yet what are you waiting for?
Run not walk to your nearest bookstore, or if you can't wait, let your fingers do the walking and order it online, you won't be sorry!
I look forward to reading the next instalment, I'm intrigued and invested in these characters now, and I need my Rush fix!
I give this 5/5 Stars.
“Everyone always says that love was enough. It wasn't. Not when your soul has been shattered.” 
“I don’t want you under those damn stairs. I hate it. But I can’t move you up here. I’ll never be able to stay away from you. I need you safely tucked away.” 

“Your instant reaction to being scared is to pull out a gun on someone? Damn girl, where are you from? Most girls I know squeal or some shit like that.” 

“There are some things you need to know.” He closed his eyes and took a deep breath. “I’m dealing with the fact that you may walk away from me once you know them and never look back. It scares the hell out of me. I don’t know what this is that is going on between us but from the moment I laid eyes on you I knew you were going to change my world. I was terrified. The more I watched you the more you drew me in. I couldn’t get close enough.” 

About Abbi

Abbi Glines was born in Birmingham, Alabama. She grew up in the small town of Sumiton, Alabama where she left the summer she turned eighteen. She didn’t get far… she chased her high school sweetheart down to the coast and she’s been there ever since.
Abbi now lives in the quaint southern town of Fairhope, Alabama with her three children and husband Keith (the high school sweetheart she chased after). Her life is never dull and Keith always makes sure there is another “experience” for them to explore.
Books published by Abbi include The Vincent Boys and the USA TODAY bestseller The Vincent Brothers, Breathe, Because of Low, the USA TODAY bestsellers While It Lasts and Just For Now, The Existence Trilogy that includes the USA Today Bestseller Ceaseless, andThe New York Times bestseller and Wall Street Journal bestseller Fallen Too Far. Currently she is working on Never Too Far, the sequel to Fallen too Far.
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.
