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.

Comments about Rush Too Far:
Having read all the other books in this series about Rush and Blair and their complex relationship it was really good to read it from Rushs perspective.
Comments about Rush Too Far:
I was excited to read this book. I'd not read an Abbi Glines novel. I met her a few months ago and she was so incredibly lovely. Very sweet and down to earth.
This book is the story of Rush and Blaire and contains the events of Fallen Too Far. The difference is Fallen Too Far was from Blaire's perspective and Rush Too Far is all about Rush. No previous knowledge of this series or characters are necessary to enjoy this book. I've read companion novels before where we get to see the other side of the story but never have I read the male view of things before reading that of the woman.
To be honest I think I would have enjoyed this novel more had I already known the characters and got to see Rush though Blaire's eyes. Rush is rather crude and crass at times. He's preoccupied with how innocent Blaire is and how he doesn't want to taint how pure she is. But then in the same thought thinking of all the dark and depraved things he wants to do to her. Don't get me wrong - it's pretty hot but I couldn't quite understand why Blaire wanted him. Their relationship seemed to be based on the idea of who Rush thinks Blaire is and how badly he wants to be with her.
Their chemistry is off the charts. The best parts of this novel are the scenes where these two are together - whether it be catching the other in a compromising situation or how lovely they are when they are finally act on their feelings. Rush is a little rough around the edges but once you get past his preoccupation with Blaire's purity, he is an interesting and complicated character. His relationships with women, his siblings and his mother are all rather complex and they go a long way to explain his somewhat twisted view of women and the way the world works.
It took me a little while to get into this book but by the end - I wanted more! I finished it last night and today I rushed out to buy Never Too Far because I can't help but want to know what happens next for Blaire and Rush and I want to know now!
If you enjoy steamy new adult novels with a different kind of narrator and a family which put the fun in dysfunctional - this book is for you. There are characters to fall in love with, some to despise and a romance which isn't conventional and will keep you wondering just what is install for these young lovers.
