Fallen Too Far was Blaire's story. Now it's time for Rush to share his side.

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.

Move over Woods Carrington because Rush Finlay is back and he's ready to reclaim his title as Rosemary Beach's number one  book boyfriend!!! Woo Hoo!!!  I loved "Rush Too Far." In fact it exceeded all my expectations in that at no point did I feel like I was just re-reading Blaire's POV in the first book in the series. Nope, Abbi Glines wrote a blinder with this one that had such a different feel to it but it wasn't just that. I got so much more. I honestly didn't realise how many scenes in the original book this couple were actually apart and let me tell you, it made for very interesting reading!!!! 

"Blaire isn't just another girl for me. She's it for me. She. Is. It." 

Getting Rush's perspective really helped to put this man in a new light. Right from the outset, I realised there were reasons why he behaved the way he did and although on the surface, he appeared to be a rich, spoiled asshole playboy, it was always about protecting his screeching, wailing bitch of a sister Nan... as it had been since they were knee high but I could see the internal struggle he faced this time. It wasn't always easy taking his sisters side but it was something he felt he had to do... guilt playing a huge part in his actions. Add Blaire into the equation, and things just got a whole lot more difficult for this man. Boy was he torn!! I loved how Blaire got under his skin, how she took over his every thought and how possessive he was of her from the moment they met. But they couldn't be together.. not after what he'd done... the guilt of that clear as day not only in his thoughts but also in his behaviour. But there's only so much will power a red blooded man has and I loved watching his resolve crumble!!

Damn her. She was going to make me feel. I couldn't fucking feel. Not with her. 

"Rush Too Far" took me on a wonderful trip down memory and I loved re-visiting some of the scenes from the first book in the series.... the night at the honky tonk, the debutante ball, the moment Rush discovered all Blaire had been eating was peanut butter sandwiches, the first night they spent in Rush's room... all huge moments in this couple's relationship that completely melted my heart. 

I could go on about the story but we all know how it ends... heart break of epic proportions and I cannot wait for the next installment. If you're afraid to pick up this book in fear of it just being a re-write of "Never Too Far," think again. You'll absolutely get so much more bang for your buck and you get more Rush Finlay... so much more.

I would leave my heart here. My soul too. She owned them. I was empty without her. 
I would never be the same. Blaire Wynn had changed me. 

 I rated "Rush Too Far" 4.5 Hearts


Headlights filled the driveway, and I let out the breath I was holding. She was home. I waited until she was out of the truck and at the door before I opened it. I wasn't giving her a chance to run from me. 

She stood there in front of me then glanced around at my feet as if she were expecting to find something. 

"Where have you been?" I asked, trying not to sounds as frustrated as I was.

"What does it matter?" She asked. She wasn't angry. She looked confused.

I closed the little bit of space between us. "Because I was worried," I said honestly. She needed to know. She'd scared me. 

"I find that real hard to believe. You were too busy with your company for the night to notice much of anything." The distaste in her voice was obvious.

"You came earlier than I expected. I didn't mean for you to witness that," I said, knowing it sounded bad as I said it. But I didn't have an excuse. Even if I wished I did.

She shifted her feet and let out a sigh. "I came home the same time I do every night. I think you wanted me to see you. Why, I'm not sure. I'm not harboring feelings for you, Rush. I just need a place to stay for a few more days. I'll be moving out of your house and your life real soon."

Damn her. She was going to make me feel. I couldn't fucking feel. Not with her. Closing my eyes, I muttered a curse and tried to calm myself down. "There are things about you don't know. I;m not one of those guys you can wrap around your finger. I have baggage. Lots of it. Too much for someone like you. I expected someone so different, considering I've met your father. But you're nothing like him. You're everything a guy like me should stay away from. Because I'm not right for you."
