Synopsis courtesy of Goodreads

Fallen Too Far was Blaire's story. Now it's time for Rush to share his side.

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.


This is a hard one for me to write. A lot of my feelings about this is how I felt about Fallen Too Far. And Rush is the kind of guy in New Adult that bothers me. I did know that going in. Despite my complaints, these books seem to always suck me in.

I did really like getting a slightly different look at Grant and Woods. They are my favorite guys in the series. Sometimes I liked Rush, but he was a little too caveman for me.

Something that really pisses me off is how Rush treats his mom and Nan. He is constantly yelling at them and threatening them with money. To me, this is abusive behavior. Just because they are bad people doesn't mean he can act that way.

If you like the Rosemary Beach series you will probably like this, too. But if you have some issues don't think this fixed them.

Thanks for reading!
