Rush

Overview

After the worldwide success of Fallen Too Far and its two sequels, Never Too Far and Forever Too Far, Abbi Glines takes her readers back to the beginning with Rush Too Far.

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.

Rush Too Far 4.5 out of 5 based on 1 ratings. 69 reviews.

I enjoyed the story from Rush's POV. It was nice to see him tell Nan off and get to see what he was doing where in the 1st book we saw Blaire's day to day stuff. If it were a less expensive book I could have overlooked errors, but at almost $8, I want more attention to details. The biggest standout was when Blaire went to Rush's room and they talked about her sister for the first time and her dad leaving. Book one she 5 years ago and he left to weeks later...in this book she dies 4 years ago and he left a year later. If the same story is told from 2 different POV at least the dialogue should be the same in both books. As much as I enjoy the reads, I am going to start waiting until the book has been out a while so I can pay $1.99 for 200 pages vs. $7.59.

Wow! I read the first in this series Fallen Too Far over a year ago and wasn't sure I wanted to read Rush's version, so I put off buying it. Finally gave in and bought and am so glad that I did. This was great. Now I remember why I fell in love with Rush and Abbi Glines!!! If you have read the books in the Rosemary Beach Series you must read this one. If you have not read that series, please do. I recommend all of Abbi Glines books! ENJOY!!!

I was hugely diappointed with this book. I was expecting new insight about Rush with this book but there wasn't any. It was pretty much the same story.

I do love this series buuutttt i wasn' t that crazy for this book, i felt like it was a repeat (which it was) of the first book. Should of been more of Rush's thoughts, it just was't worth $8 dollars for this repeat. I just expected more to the story. Tell us something that wasn't in the first book.

Rush Too Far would easily have had to be one of my most anticipated releases of this year. After completely falling in love with the Rosemary Beach series last year I was eager to get my hands on a copy, although Rush Too Far is a retelling of the first book Fallen Too Far but told from Rush's point of view, and though it's the same story I find that with Abbi's writing, this book feels like a completely new version of the story, one I've never read before, being inside Rush's head and reading about what he was thinking and feeling as well as having us, the reader understand precisely why he did the things that he did, has made me an even bigger fan of his character than before. From the first interaction between Rush and Blaire, to the infamous peanut butter scene (which for some reason got me all emotional) and the instant when Rush who had tried so hard to keep his distance so h wouldn't develop any feelings for her, realises that not only has he fallen in love with Blaire but she's it "the one". But there's still the issue of the secret that everyone seems to know about, everyone except Blaire who remains oblivious, you see Rush did something years ago that effectively changed her life forever, and once she finds out what it is they'll be over, so Rush delays telling her trying to prolong their time together for as long as possible, but the truth will always find it's way of getting out, can he be forgiven or will their relationship be over before it's even begun? I wish that Abbi would re-write the next two Blaire and Rush books in Rush's point of view, I would really love to know what he was thinking when Blaire drops her bombshell, I'd do anything to be able to read that. Filled with all the characters we loved and hated from the first book (Nan I'm talking about you), this will do nothing but keep you entertained the whole way through, and leave you desperate and eager for more Rush. There's nothing that Abbi releases that I don't buy and like, and this was no exception! Highly recommended.

As someone who has loved Blaire and Rush since first picking up Fallen Too Far, I was over the moon to find out Abbi would be writing the book from Rush’s perspective. Their relationship hasn’t been an easy one and all the books have been told from Blaire’s perspective. I couldn’t wait to get Rush’s side of the story.  I, along with half the women in America – or at least those who read Abbi’s books, love Rush Finlay. He’s a sexy, brooding alpha male. He’s also a manwhore. Or he was, at least. But that’s part of his charm. Say what you will about Rush, but the women he was with knew what the deal was. He never let them think it was something more. Was he an a$$hole? At times, yes. And sometimes even with Blaire. But it didn’t matter, I’ve been a fan from the start. Of course, I got a little angry with him from time to time, but I always suspected he would make things right.  If you’ve read any of the Too Far or Rosemary Beach books, you know the story of Blaire and Rush, so I won’t bore you with details. If you haven’t read the books yet and you like sexy romances with bad boys, sweet girls and hot scenes, pick these up immediately. This story was just as sexy as the first. Maybe even more so because we were looking at Blaire through Rush’s eyes… and let me tell you, that boy is intense. Also, hot. But you knew both of those things. He’s also got a huge heart and more feelings than he lets show. I just wanted to give him a big hug at the end. Despite knowing how Blaire and Rush’s full story ends, I was a giant mushy mess of feels. It pretty much goes without saying that my favorite thing about this book was getting Rush’s side of the story. Abbi did a fantastic job of writing him. She writes the male POV really well. And while, yes, the story is the same as in Fallen Too Far, it never felt like I was reading the same book all over again because of the new bits and bites she added in. Even if it had felt more like a reread, however, I think I still would have loved it. We knew from the start Rush was attracted to Blaire and that he tried to stay away. But I loved reading his thoughts as he realized what he had for her was more than lust. This reformed bad boy won my heart all over again with this book.  Now is it too much to hope Abbi will write the other two books from his POV as well? I’d love to see more about what was going on with him during the times he was apart from Blaire. I’ll cross my fingers and hope.

A adult and a teenager? She is 19 and he is 24, I don't think a five year difference is all that shocking. And yes there is adult language and themes, if you had read anything by this author you would know thats her norm.

This is an adult book with explicit sexual scenes and adult language. About teenagers but with all the aspects of language and sex scenes of an adult book. An adult attracted to a young teenage girl with explicit adult language.

5 Freaking Hot "Rush Crush" Stars TITLE~ Rush Too Far AUTHOR~ Abbi Glines GENRE~ New Adult-Romance  PUBLISHED~  PURCHASED/COST~ Amazon/ MY RATING~ 5/5 MY THOUGHTS~  I chose to purchase and read this book because the author is a favorite of mine and I love all of her work. The Rosemary Beach series is one of my all-time favorites! Abbi Glines took a risk, in my opinion, by re-telling --- Too Far from the male POV after the fact. This is often done for the wrong reasons, I think, but Abbi Glines listened to her fans and gave us exactly what we wanted! Her risk was worth it, from where I stand. Rush Too Far was a bit more than your average male-pov-re-telling. I loved getting into Rush's gorgeous head in this book! I want more! "Always more!" As always, the author's writing is impeccable. The story just kicked ass! In fact, I'm pretty sure I will be going back to read --- Too Far and ---Too Far again now just to relive the story again with the knowledge I now have from this book!  This is a must read without a doubt! 1-Click this bad boy now!

I am so up in the air over Male Pov’s. They have to be done right or they’re just a big letdown.  Since I love The Rosemary Beach series I had to put this on my TBR. When I picked it up and read the prologue it gave me so much hope that the rest of the book would hold up. I.WAS.NOT.LET.DOWN. I loved that it wasn’t a straight up retelling of the first book. I loved getting to see Rush interact with his friends and family. So bravo to Abbi Glines for writing a terrific male POV for this series. - As a child, I had often wondered if angels were real. By the time I was ten, I had decided they weren’t. That was BS. I realized now that I’d been wrong. Blaire was my angel.
