Rush Too Far by Abbi Glines
Rush Too Far: A Rosemary Beach Novel (The Rosemary Beach Series)
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.
Phew. I just finished reading Rush Too Far and man oh man. I was just like I need more! the entire time. Chores? Homework? Food? Who cares! I have Rush to read. It has been long enough since I read Fallen Too Far so I didn't remember all of the details. I remembered the basic gist, but geez Rush was hot. I usually don't like rock star heroes, and maybe I like Rush because he is just the son of a rock star. Man this was a great read. I'm going to need to go read the second book again to remember how everything will work out. Yes.
So if you have read Fallen Too Far you know the basic storyline for this book. Blaire shows up on Rush's doorstep unannounced and he is none to happy about it. At first he assumes she is a mooch just like her dad. His sister, Nan, one of the most hated characters in my mind, shared the same father as Blaire. Blaire's father, however, didn't acknowledge Nan growing up and so Rush and Nan both became bitter towards him and his family he chose over Nan.
Rush tries really hard to stay away from Blaire. She is sweet and innocent and just amazing and he knows he doesn't deserve her. He knows once she finds out the truth she will hate him. He can't help himself, especially when Blaire wants him. There are a lot of ups and downs and Blaire never really seems to realize just how much Rush cares for her. She thinks that she is beneath him and his friends and she is just one of the many. It was nice reading this from his point of view so you can see just how crazy about her he is. I just...it was so good. I loved it. And the ending...I knew it was coming but I still kept hoping that somehow it would be different. Somehow it would all work out differently. I know that is crazy, but I couldn't help but hope for the best. Definitely go read this book if you want some more Rush. It is amazing and heartbreaking and just yeah. Go read it.
