Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
Abbi Glines was born in Birmingham, Alabama. She grew up in the small town of Sumiton, Alabama where she left the summer she turned eighteen. She didn’t get far… she chased her high school sweetheart down to the coast and she’s been there every since. Abbi now lives in the quaint southern town of Fairhope, Alabama with her three children and husband Keith (the high school sweetheart she chased after). Her life is never dull and Keith always makes sure there is another “experience” for them to explore. Books published by Abbi include The Vincent Boys and the USA TODAY bestseller The Vincent Brothers, Breathe, Because of Low, the USA TODAY bestsellers While It Lasts and Just For Now, The Existence Trilogy that includes the USA Today Bestseller Ceaseless, andThe New York Times bestseller and Wall Street Journal bestseller Fallen Too Far. Currently she is working on Never Too Far, the sequel to Fallen too Far. When Abbi isn’t locked away in her office typing away she is hauling her kids to and from their many social activities. You could say her second job is the Glines Kids personal chauffeur. It’s a rather illustrious job.

Die Rahmenhandlung hätte alles, was ich am New Adult Genre mag: Drama, Missverständnisse, etwas hin und her usw. Jedoch konnte ich mich überhaut nicht mit den Büchern anfreunden. Die Detailhandlung gibt einfach zu wenig her. Die Charaktere bleiben unheimlich oberflächlich. Die Entwicklung einer Beziehung zwischen Rush und Blaire war für mich in keiner Weise nachvollziehbar. Und die erotischen Szenen fand ich sehr langweilig.
Nachdem ich mich gerne quäle und die Seitenanzahl übersichtlich war, habe ich trotzdem alle drei Bände gelesen - auch in der Hoffnung, dass die Story vielleicht doch noch besser werden würde. Leider war das Gegenteil der Fall. Der zweite Band fiel noch etwas ab und den dritten Teil habe ich nur noch oberflächlich überflogen und war froh, am Ende angelangt zu sein.
Let's start with the good things. I liked the characters in general, though they don't deliver anything special but remain very stereotypical: a young innocent gorgeous girl with parental issues and an a bit older again gorgeous guy with six-pack, money and a (bad) ass attitude. Chemistry- check, restraint and inability to act out on their wishes- check (love stories about forbidden fruit are always the best for me). There were enough hot and steamy scenes between Rush and Blaire to keep my attention. The beginning of the story was captivating, esp. the part with the gun, but unfortunately it didn't last very long for me.
There is a simple "law of attraction" between me and any book - in comparison to real life, fiction should make sense. Just bringing events in some strange order to create tension and suspension is definitely not enough. This book was full of WTHs and Whys for me. Blaire arrives at the house where her father supposedly waits for her. She has nothing but her truck and clothes. The house belongs to her step-brother, who seems to hate her at once. But despite his attitude and hate talk he is so gorgeous and sexy that she can't stop thinking of him. Blaire is allowed to live in Rush's house but tries to find her own footing and gets a job in the country club. And here the plot just goes down. I didn't like this black-white description of rich people and blue-collar workers (rich-ultimately bad and working people- perfectly good). It was just too extreme for my taste. After saying maybe 3 or 4 sentences to each other and seeing each other 2 times, Rush suddenly proclaims himself a bad guy and warns Blaire to stay away from him. WHY?!! She hasn't even shown him any signs! Then there was this strange notion of age difference: Rush is 24 and Blaire is 19. 5 years difference, both are adults and pretty mature. Still Rush behaves in such a way as if he were trying to seduce a 16- year-old being 40 himself. The next absolutely unexplainable thing is Nan's secret. Nan is Rush's younger sister who hates Blaire at sight. She is also very gorgeous, but bitchy. As it appears everyone knows why Nan hates Blaire but neither Nan, nor Rush nor a bunch other people tell Blaire this. But everyone makes a big deal out of this secret. WTH?! Nan doesn't even try to say anything in that direction to Blaire. Confusing and unreal. When the secret is that big, there would be no way the person like Nan would keep her mouth shut. I still do not get it why Rush regards himself as a bad person (though it is partly explained in the blurb).
Well I can't really say the book was bad but it was not that good either. Cage's and Preston's ones are still my favorites. I will give 5 stars for the hot-factor, but 2,5-3 for the plot itself. My personal idea of a good read is a smooth flowing through the story, and not stumbling around all the time asking "what the hell is happening and why?". I hope the second book will deliver more sense and less WTHs.
In Fallen too far, we get Blaire, our stereotypical heroine: shes a poor, sweet, little virgin who has been through soooo much already and now she has to deal with this super, super, super bad boy, Rush, whose badness seems to be defined in being a man-whore. Oh and he's super-rich and super-good looking. Duh.
After her mothers death, Blaire comes to Florida to live with her Dad and try to get back on her feet, but instead of her Dad she meets Rush, her father's new Step-son. After a few short chapters, Rush and Blaire have problems keeping their hands off each other and suddenly Rush develops a conscienes and tries to protect "sweet Blaire" from his "super-badness".
Throw in some family issues, a deep, dark and schocking family secret, that makes a overly dramatic ending, and voila, you've got Fallen too far.
So why did I enjoy this book so much? I can't really say, but it's one of the books you just curl up on the couch on a rainy Sunday with. And in my opinion Blaire and Rush do have a sizzling chemistry and I just loved the love-scenes, which are seriously hot.
So if you are looking for a book with real depth you should look elsewhere, if you enjoyed any other of Abbi Glines books you will probably like this one too.
A Warning: this is the first part of a two-book-series, so don't be surprised when the book ends at its peak. The second part Never too far comes out the end of February.
So even though for most parts of the book the story-line and the characters are lacking some, I still coudn't put the book down, so I give it 4 Stars.
