Book Description:

He had held a secret that destroyed her world.

Everything she had known was no longer true.

Blaire couldn’t stop loving him but she knew she could never forgive him.
Now, she was back home and learning to live again. Moving on with life… until something happened to send her world spinning once again.
What do you do when the one person you can never trust again is the one that you need to trust so desperately?

You lie, hide, avoid, and pray that your sins never find you out.

Did you miss the first one? 

Book Description:

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.

My Thoughts:

5 stars - I can never get enough Rush!

At the end of FALLEN TOO FAR, my heart was broken.  I loved both of these characters and was so distraught over their relationship.  NEVER TOO FAR could not come out soon enough for me.

In this next book, Blaire is hurting and not sure where her life is headed.  Then a twist I totally saw from the last book became a reality for her and she was thrown upside down again.  But here's the thing, she was already upside down - this may be the right side up turn....right?  It can be dizzy though, for sure.

Back in the same town with the complete devastated Rush, Blaire struggles to be just friends with him.  Her attraction to him has heated up even more than before and she reacts to his touch in delicious ways.

My heart broke for Rush in this book.  He struggled to figure out how to still love and protect his sister, Nan, and get Blaire back because he was deeply and complete in love with her.  He kept messing up but no one can fault him for trying.  I love him.  He's come so far.  I can never get enough Rush!

Blaire is hard to convince.  She was hurt so bad and she can't take the chance it will happen again, but she loves him.  Now with even more reason to want to be with him, she learns what her heart wants.  Will she learn that she can forgive and forget even the one that hurt her the most.

The pacing  of this book is perfect.  I was so glad when Blaire came back so quickly.  Those two needed to be in the same city for this to work.  I didn't want a big long section of them apart at the beginning to wade through but everything was perfect.  Well, the pacing was perfect.  Those two struggled for sure.

While I did guessed the main twist all the way back in book 1, there were still some secrets to be held/discovered in this one.  I was very surprised about the major one that comes to light at the end of the book.  Nicely done.

This one is new adult and has some hot and steamy scenes, so it's 18 and up only for sure.  But if you read the first one, then you so need to read this one.  If you missed the first and love NA romance, then make sure and pick this one up.

I'm even more excited now to read Twisted Perfection, book 3, which is Woods story! YAY!

Book Description:

Life outside of her house was a new experience for Della Sloane. The dark secrets of her past weren’t something she ever intended to share with anyone. They would never understand. No one would ever get close enough to find out. Besides there was always a chance she’d go crazy sooner than they expected…

Woods Kerrington had never been one to be attracted to fragile females. They seemed like too much work. He wasn’t in it for the work just the pleasure. A night full of naughty fun had been exactly what was on his mind when he’d laid eyes on the hot little number that didn’t know how to pump gas and needed some help.

What he didn’t know was she was as fragile as they came.

The carefree girl who spoke her mind and didn’t care what the world thought of her was more breakable than he could ever imagine…



  1. I liked the pacing of this one too. I was ready for them to get together though by the time they did. I also guessed a few things in the first book, but she sure did give us some new whammies, right??? Loved the ending. <3 Glad you loved it as much as I did! I can't wait for Woods book too! And Grants!

  2. I really need to read the first book!! I totally suck at not having time to get to books that I keep buying and wanting to read. Awesome review babe!!

  3. Dammit. Am I the only one who didn't see the twist?!! I think I'm losing my touch. This book. Was. Perfect. I loved Rush. I loved Blair. I loved the pacing. I loved the plot. And I love Abbi Glines. This is her best book yet.

    Awesome review. *high fives*
