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.

I came across this series by accident and I am so glad I did because it was a great series to read. Fallen to Far is the first of three books and I honestly read all three in one weekend. Although I will say that story line is a little unbelievable at times, and the lines can get a little on the corny side, I loved reading them.

Fallen Too Far follows Blaire as she deals with the death of her mother and having to go live with her estranged father. What she doesn't account for is falling for Rush Finley, the son of her new stepmother. He is bad is every way possible, yet they just can't seem to stay away from each other. And it is their relationship that creates even more drama than either of them knew possible.

Rush Finley is the guy you love to hate. He is cocky, handsome and is constantly surrounded by women who adore him. So I really liked the contrast between the Rush we meet at the beginning of the novel and the one that evolves by the end. It is almost as if Blaire's presence in his life forever changes him and that was really sweet to read.

Blaire is the complete opposite to Rush, she is innocent and naive to many things and it is only when she meets him and begins to spend time with him that she evolves into a young woman. I loved reading her reactions to Rush's lifestyle because they would have been exactly what I would have said. She was a great character that you could relate to in terms of life experience. This was a great start to a series that went farther then I thought it would go. Look for my review of Never too Far coming tomorrow!
