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.

ExcerptHeadlights 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.”
Christine’s 4 STAR Review!!! 
Fans of Fallen Too Far will love this book as it is book 1 in Rush’s POV.  I loved Rush in Fallen Too Far and to now see what was going through his mind when he first met Blair makes my heart melt for him even more.  To be in his head is a treat – I SO love the male POV when it’s done right and Ms. Glines did not disappoint!
When we first met Rush, I thought he was a complete jerk, but to learn what he was actually thinking and feeling – his guilt towards his feelings for Blaire knowing how much it hurt his sister, his complete adoration, protectiveness and eventual love for Blaire, and his relentless pursuit of her despite everyone being against them makes him even MORE in my eyes!  It’s no doubt in my mind how loyal and how good of a person Rush is through and through.  It is very apparent in this book how much of a caregiver and protector is Rush is to everyone in his life – Nan, Grant, Blaire, his cousin Will – it’s a natural instinct for him and really highlights how our first impressions of him in Fallen Too Far was so wrong.
Watching Rush truly open up to Blaire to let her into his life and to realize what a good person he is even though he originally had self doubts is a wonderful thing – could we fall in love with him anymore?!
I have loved all of Abbi’s books in this series to date but this one has become my top fave so far…can’t wait to see what else she bring us…I am always game for more Rush!!! <3
