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.
I picked up Fallen Too Far because the cover is smoking hot. I’ve been in a huge New Adult phase lately. I’ve been stockpiling all I can get on my Nook. Fallen Too Far is one of the best New Adult books that I have ever read. It’s about Blaire who is from Alabama and has just up and moved to Florida to live with her father after her mother’s death. When she gets there, though, her father has run off to Paris and the only person in the house is her stepbrother, Rush. He decides to let her move in with him for one month until she can get a place of her own and during that time…well…..sparks…and heat…fly.
Blaire was an awesome main character. I think I fell in love with her the very first time she drew a gun on someone. She was tough, edgy, strong, and she stood up for herself and what she believed in. Normally these types of books are all about push over girls, and I was really intrigued that Fallen Too Far pretty much avoided that for the most part. Toward the end of the book, Blaire definitely got on my nerves a little bit more. That probably happened within like the last 4 or 5 chapters.
Rush. O.M.G. Rush. Tongue Piercing. That is all I have to say about him. No, no..I’m kidding. Well, not about the tongue piercing….Anways *ahem* Rush was just too steamy and hunky not to fall in love with. He is definitely an edgy and punkish type of character. Like in all of the New Adult books that I have read, that side of him disappeared by the end and was replaced by a more sensitive side. That is going to highly appeal to some girl, but I HATE reading about sensitive male characters. It’s just not something I’m into. Again, though, that didn’t happen until the very end of the book.
Fallen Too Far is definitely steamy and may not be appropriate for younger teenagers. It’s definitely New Adult contemporary, but it does have some sexual scenes included in it, which is pretty standard for New Adult. I would definitely say that this book is more for the older crowd.
I loved this book. I read it in about 6 hours and it kept me up late at night. I found the book to be well-written and the story to be addicting. I thought that I might run across some problems, because I was a little hesitant with the step siblings romance plot, but it really didn’t bug me. I don’t think that it will bother anyone else, either. It was just a really good book and the romance was everything that I could have hoped for. YOU NEED to go read this book!
