Review: Rush Too Far by Abbi Glines

Rush Too Far
Author: Abbi Glines
Published: May 6th, 2014


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.


When Abbi Glines said she was going to write Fallen Too Far in Rush’s point of view I was over the moon!!!! I couldn’t wait to see what was going on in his head during this book. I was not disappointed one bit! Overall, this really was Fallen Too Far retold from Rush’s point of view, but you had many differences.

Everything that we didn’t get, his feelings, his conversations with Grant and Nan. Everything that seemed to be missing from Fallen Too Far was here. Being able to see what he really thought when she first showed up was awesome. He truly is a guy that is torn between his family and the one girl that might actually be it for him. Rush is loyal to everyone in his family, except for maybe his mom and you can see the way he is really messed about with how the handle something that he created.

After destroying the home of the sweet girl that came walking into his life, he tries to stay away. He warns her multiply times to steer clear. Honestly though… can you really stay away from this sexy man? Rush fights it as we know, but he can’t stay away from her. We’re finally getting to see the turmoil that goes on in his head.

We also get to see how he tells his friends to stay away from her, especially his confrontations with Woods. I will say, the way Abbi portrayed Woods in this novel compared to the others I was a little shocked. Woods has always been one of my favorite characters of hers. When I started to read the parts with him and Rush I had to take a step back and was like, “Whoa, chill out dude”. Also, we got to see a little bit more of Nan in this book and my dislike for her has grown more since I’ve read about her. She was just as nasty and mean as she was in the rest of the books. When I thought we may see a turn around, it was yanked away quickly.

I do wish that we would have gotten a little bit more back story to Rush and his family life before Blaire. It would have been nice to maybe see some of his time with his dad before Blaire came in the picture. Overall though, this was the best addition to this story. My Rush Crush has grown even more because of this book!!!

Favorite Quotes:

“My angel. A beautiful, strong, fierce, loyal angel who entered my life in a pickup truck, carrying a gun.”

“Blaire isn’t just another girl for me. She’s it for me. She. Is. It.”

“Loving someone you don’t deserve isn’t easy. It hurts like hell. But not one moment of any time with Blaire would I regret.”
