*happy dance*

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.

You have GOT to be kidding me.

My heart is literally breaking right now after reading Fallen too Far.  I'm trying my damnedest to hold back the tears that are threatening to spill from my eyes.

When I first got this book, I honestly thought I wouldn't like it.  I had a step brother (who died of leukemia when we were kids), and the thought of a romance between step siblings was a major turn off.  But, how Abbi portrayed the characters, and the fact that they were both of age and matured by the time they met each other, took the crassness away from the scenario.  It wasn't like falling in love with your brother (thank God, because I definitely wouldn't of been able to hold the bile down if that was the case.... ewww).

Abbi's writing is absolutely beautiful.  She captivates readers through her remarkable ability to create characters whos complexity and persona grow into the readers the farther they get into the story.  Before I knew it, I was absolutely captivated, wanting to lash out at anyone who interrupted me while reading. Needless to say, I devoured it in 5 hours, and when you have 4 kids like I do, that's saying something.

The complexity of the characters is really astounding.  The farther along I read, and the more I heard about Nan and 'the secret' the more intrigued I became.  I was far too tempted to skip through just to find out what the secret was, but I was able to control my curiosity, and boy, am I ever glad that I did.  Never in a million years would I have guessed that THAT was the secret.  Flipped my lid and had me shaking my head in denial.

The only thing I'm pissed about was the major heartbreak it ended on.  But not necessarily because it was disappointing.  It's actually refreshing to have an ending that is more realistic and not a classic fairy tell ending.  What I'm pissed about is that the second book (Never Too Far) doesn't come out until March 12, 2013.  You are seriously killing me Abbi.

If you haven't read Fallen Too Far yet, you are definitely missing out one hell of a book.  It is a definite must read.  So, dive in, buy it, rent it, I don't care how you get it (besides stealing, that's bad), you just HAVE to get this book.  Very well done Abbi!

What do you think is the worst type of romance to write? What is the best?

  1. I can't stand the secret baby romances. If I start to read a book that has one, even by a favorite author, I stop. I just don't like that the mom keeps the baby from the dad for 18 years then they meet up, he forgives her and they live happily ever after. Really??? I think the best are the life long romances (maybe because my husband and I have been together since we were 13 and we're hitting our 12th wedding anniversary).

  2. Forbidden love.Defo needs a bad boy involved and I dont like at all love triangles.

  3. I like it all.. I have a soft spot for second chance romance.

  4. I enjoy most, but get tired of the push and pull between characters, at little is good and sets the scene, but I want the adventure to be a collaboration. Like Joni I also enjoy the second chance where after years apart the characters meet again and sparks fly.
