Series: Too Far #1, Rosemary Beach #1
Published on January 20, 2014
The New York Times bestselling novel that launched the beloved world of Rosemary Beach and introduced the world to Rush and Blaire.
The wealthy son of a rocker. A tough farm girl from Alabama. Two step-siblings from different worlds. One summer in Rosemary Beach.
The last thing Blaire Wynn wants is to move in with her father’s new family in Rosemary Beach, Florida. She has no choice. Blaire’s mother has passed away after a long illness, leaving behind a mountain of medical debts and no way for Blaire to keep their small Alabama farmhouse.
Driving into the wealthy resort town in a pickup truck with a pistol under her seat, Blaire knows she’ll never fit in. She’s even more disappointed to discover that her father has left for Paris, leaving her with her new stepbrother, Rush Finlay. The cynical, condescending, and unapologetic son of an infamous rock star, Rush is as spoiled as he is gorgeous—and he immediately gets under Blaire’s skin.
But as the summer goes by, Blaire begins to see a side of Rush she never expected, and the chemistry between them becomes impossible to ignore. Unknown to her, Rush has a secret that could destroy Blaire’s entire world. Will she find out what he’s hiding before she falls too far?
I have been on a craze on finding good New Adult novels to read. I noticed that most of the New Adult has similar plot\-line, girl meets boy, girl and boy fall in love, boy has some form of big secret that would destroy their relationship. To be honest, I am not too convinced of the general yet, with the all too familiar storyline I am afraid it would become redundant.
Searching through Goodreads, I come across Fallen Too Far, I heard good thing about the author, along with good reviews, I decided to give it a try, and I was glad!
Blaire is only 19 years old, but she has been through a lot more than her typical peers. Losing her twin sister in her early teens, shortly after that her father left her and her mother, then Blaire gave up her social life when her mother became ill with cancer, she also dropped out of high school because she cannot afford to go to school and take care her mother at the same time. Yeah, Blaire has been through quite a bit alright.
What I really like about Blaire was, she is mature, and independent. For Blaire, calling her estranged father wasn’t her first option, but when she sold her house to pay for her mother’s medical expense and funeral, she know she needed a fresh start, and staying with her father temporary to save money is a smart choice. However what she finds out when she arrived at the house was not what she expected.
Rush is often rude to Blaire, but also possessive with her that leave Blaire often confused with his attitude. Throughout the book I was often wondering what the secret was about, and how it would play out for Blaire and Rush, the book left me worried and eager to read book 2 Never Too Far.
Blaire was a very likable heroine that make reading Fallen Too Far quite enjoyable for me. It’s hard to not like Blaire, plus she can handle a gun better than most men!
If you enjoy New Adult with more heat, definitely check it out this book!
