Book Review: Fallen Too Far by Abbi Glines


To want what you’re not supposed to have…

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.


Book Review:

This book is the definition of fast-paced! Did I just digest this book in one day? This book is a recommendation from Erika from The Nocturnal Fey and I couldn’t thank her enough for making me read this book. I feel like I need to read a romance book in between my fantasy or science-fiction read and this is the perfect novel for me to start with. Fallen Too Far started with Blaire’s complicated family situation where her father marries someone. Just to find out that her father and new wife went to Paris. That’s leaves her Rush, her step-brother but not in blood.

This book has a lot of complexity in the familial relationship but it is not that difficult to track who’s who and what are they relationship towards each other. Enemies to lovers displayed in this book and I couldn’t get enough because the teasing, the building tension – they are getting me on my nerves and I feel like, I just wanted to put Blaire and Rush on the same page and yell, “KISS ALREADY!”

What I didn’t like about the book is why romance authors always rooting for the mysterious and have a dark past guy. Why? Is it attractive? I don’t really appreciate those things but I try to enjoy this book instead. And the things is, I really like the book. It is a short read to distract from everyday routine and I like Blaire. She is this independent strong woman even in nineteen and could decide for herself. What more a girl with a gun. She rocks a lot!

Fallen Too Far by Abbi Glines is definitely the book that will make you read more from the series. It is short. I wish it was longer but still this is a series. There are more from their story. Verdict: I love the ending. I wish it could stay that way but that would be false hope since the other two books are already released and we know that romance authors love happy endings.

  1. Love the review! 😊 I love this book also. And I will answer the question, because I think majority of the girls really love mysterious guys, that’s why authors really love to write about them. 😁


      1. Those guys who don’t have a dark past are interesting too. It depends. Dark past and all, I always look on the good side. As long as you’re aware of what’s right and wrong, you won’t lose yourself over someone. You help them through the journey but the huge effort still goes to that person’s willingness to change. Haha

        Okay lang yan Raf. We’re just exchanging different points. 🙂
