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.

So usually I am not a fan of books that are re-written from a different point of view (Walking Disaster by Jamie McGuire being the exception) however I can now add RUSH TOO FAR to that elite group.

I absolutely loved FALLEN TOO FAR and the entire ROSEMARY BEACH series.  Rush, Blaire, Grant (OMG... I LOVE GRANT), Nan (HATE HER...Grant what were you thinking),Woods, Della, Bethy, Jace, Thad, Tripp, Harlow, Dean, Kiro...and so on...all these characters are incredible and easy to connect with.  I loved being able to see them (well most of them) from Rush Finley's POV in RUSH TOO FAR.

Rush is the bad boy every woman wants, but can only have for a night.  He is the textbook definition of unattainable, to women, however to his family, he loves and he loves HARD!!  He will do anything and everything to protect whats his, and his family, (especially his half-sister, Nanette) is his!  However, the minute that Blaire Wynn steps into his life, all Alabama bad-ass, wielding her gun that she knows how to use (test her, I dare you), his world gets thrown upside down. 

 This is the girl he HATES (well, his sister Nan hates, so as her brother he does as well by default).  He wants nothing to do with her, but because his mother is married to her father, he has to put up with her. Little did Rush know that this girl, the object of his sisters hatred, was about to change his life in ways he never imagined!!!  

The more he got to know Blaire, the more he couldn't fight his feelings for her.  Torn between being faithful and protective of his sister's feelings, and allowing himself to be swept up in the love of his lifetime, Rush is pulled in two different directions.  He has no choice but to choose one, and hope that he can live with that decision.

RUSH TOO FAR by Abbi Glines was an incredible book!!  As mentioned before, the entire series is a favorite of mine, and I thank Abbi and Atria Books for the opportunity to read and review this book before the release date.  This is definitely a 5+ star read for me, and will be for all the TOO FAR and ROSEMARY BEACH series fans.  You will be glad you one-clicked!!

They say that children have the purest hearts. That children don’t truly hate because they don’t fully understand the emotion. They forgive and forget easily.

They say a lot of bullshit like that because it helps them sleep at night. Such sayings make for good, heart-warming clich├ęs to hang on the walls, to bring out a smile in people passing by.

I know differently. Children love like no other. They have the capacity to love more fiercely than anyone else. That much is true. That much I know. Because I lived it. By the age of ten I knew hate and I knew love. Both all-consuming. Both life-altering. And both completely blinding.

Looking back now I wish someone had been there to see how my mother had sown the seed of hate inside of me. Inside of my sister. If someone had been there to save us from the lies and bitterness she allowed to fester within us, then maybe things would have been different. For everyone involved.

I never would have acted so foolishly. It wouldn’t have been my fault that a girl was left alone to take care of her ailing mother. It wouldn’t have been my fault that the same girl stood at her mother’s graveside, believing that the last person on earth who loved her was dead. It wouldn’t have been my fault that a man destroyed himself after his life became a broken, hollow shell.

But no one saved me.

No one saved us.

We believed the lies. We held onto our hate, and I alone destroyed an innocent girl’s life.

They say you reap what you sow. That’s bullshit, too. Because I should be burning in hell for my sins. I shouldn’t be allowed to wake up every morning with this beautiful woman in my arms, who loves me unconditionally. I shouldn’t get to hold my son and know such a pure joy.

But I do.
Because, eventually, someone did save me. I didn’t deserve it. Hell, more than anyone it was my sister who needed saving. She hadn’t acted on her hate. She hadn’t manipulated the lives of our family members, not caring about the outcome. But her bitterness still controlled her while I had been delivered. By a girl…

No, she wasn’t just a girl. She was an angel. My angel. A beautiful, strong, fierce, loyal angel who had entered my life in a pick-up truck, carrying a gun.
