Ah.mazing book!

Author, I loved this book to bits. :D
Yes, It pissed the HELL out of me, but I still loved it, the story, the characters and the writings. Can't wait for the next book. I'll probably die waiting.

FUCK ME. This book is HOT!!!!
He had a tongue piercing AND silver eyes AND a ripped bod!! Holy hell.. He totally looked like SIN *fans herself*

I hated and loved this book, I swear I want to burn it to ashes but I love it too too much!

Rush, HOT HOT HOT sinfully hot and just ah-mazing. Love

*4 Stars*

Fallen Too Far was an addictive read! The story picked up momentum immediately and never once faltered in its intensity. Abbi has done an amazing job in taking a commonly used, but highly sought after plot—sexy bad-boy meets innocent virgin good-girl—and transforming it into something unique and genuine.

After having lost everything important to her, Blaire reluctantly heads to her estranged father'shouse in search of shelter while she gets her life back on track. What she encounters the

Okay, now that I've let it all out, off to my review...

Fallen Too Far... Hmmm... The book is as beautiful as it's cover. The story is about Blaire who after the demise of her mother, seeked help from the person who hasn't been there for her her whole life, her father. When she came to the address he sent, guess what? Her father's not there! The one who welcomed her (or not?) is Rush Finla

2.5 stars. I didn't love it, but I certainly didn't hate it, either.

One of my main gripes about this book is the horribly bad editing. It was distracting and took away from the story.

There’s missing commas and sentences that read kind of awkwardly. No, I can’t explain it, other than to say that there’s just something off about them.

Don’t even get me started on the difference between action tags and dialogue tags and how to properly punctuate them. You can’t speak an action. A period is needed as


Fallen Too Far was my very first book by Abbi Glines and I already know it won't be my last...

Blaire --

Rush --

She's a young, unexperienced girl who's been hurt more than once by the people she loved.

He's a typical bad boy...tattooed, pierced and a different girl every night.

They are each others stepbrother and stepsister and therefore a recipe for disaster... (or not).

When I first started reading Fallen Too Far I expected it to be an easy, fun story
I think I should just give up trying with New Adult literature. So far, the genre has offered none of the maturity or complexities of the liminal period between teen years and full-on adulthood, instead preferring what merely amount to college age erotic romances with a hefty side dish of misogyny. Indeed, the frequency with which sexist portrayals of women and relationships appear throughout works labelled New Adult suggests that the pair go hand in hand. While “Fallen Too Far” didn’t reach the ...more

Autumn Review
This is one of the hardest reviews I've ever had to write. Why, you ask? Well, I can tell you it might possibly be my favorite Abbi Glines book written, but I don't want to say much and ruin the story for you all. So, I'll give you a few highlights and strongly encourage you to get it.

This book is Blaire's story. I loved this chick the minute she pulled out her gun. Literally. She's strong, smart, independent and loving. But, unfortunately for Blaire, she's had to suffer through some pretty hor

4 stars

Overall, I really enjoyed this book. If you like the New Adult genre that features a well written story, you'll LOVE this one!

I'm so full of mixed feelings right now...I don't even know where to start.

Ok,deep breath taken.Let's go!

So, at first (and when I say this, I mean in the first 17 chapters) I absolutely DESPISED Rush. He was mean to Blaire and really didn't respect her. He being a playboy REALLY didn't help me like him better either. I thought he was an asshole for even THINKING of treating her the way he did. But, you know, authors have the magical ability of making you change your mind. After Rush

This is the first book in a new series and it was…Spectacular! Fireworks! Explosions! Abbi Glines writes the steamiest, mature young adult romances that I have read. She is a “drop everything else and move her book to the top of the list” author for me, and I definitely haven’t been disappointed it her latest books.

Wait, another book with an "innocent" girl and a guy who's played everyone? Isn't this like every other Glines book (at least the 6 or so others I've read)? I get formulas, but there comes a point where you have to write a DIFFERENT character type in order to prove that you are more than a one-trick pony. How about flipping this for once and giving us the experienced girl with the inexperienced guy?

Sigh. I was going to read this because I do like the sexual tension that Glines creates, but now I

I just love when the bad boy 'playa' falls and especially when he doesn't realize he is falling! The sweet part about this story is that you have Blaire who has gone through some horrible things in the past five years: her twin sister dies, her father left and then she alone takes care of her mother who dies of cancer...she can definitely take care of herself!

I knew this book was going to be trouble from the moment I saw the cover for it and read the blurb, but I never could have imagined how much I would end loving every single page, every single scene, every single word.

Thats right. You are seeing it correctly. Only 2 stars for me. I didnt hate it, I just thought it was okay.
If you hover over the stars you'll see that when you do this it says it was okay and thats how I felt about this book.

You take a girl who has gone to so much in life, the death of her twin sister to taking care of her dying mother, and put her in a room with a boy that says “I cant have you” or “you’re too good” and you turn her into what resembles a well put together chick.
