To want what you’re not supposed to have…

She is only nineteen.

She is his new stepfather’s daughter. 

She is still naïve and innocent due to spending the last three years taking care of her sick mother. 

But for twenty-four year old Rush Finlay, she is the only thing that has ever been off limits. His famous father’s guilt money, his mother’s desperation to win his love, and his charm are the three reasons he has never been told no.

Blaire Wynn left her small farmhouse in Alabama, after her mother passed away, to move in with her father and his new wife in their sprawling beach house along the Florida gulf coast. She isn’t prepared for the lifestyle change and she knows she’ll never fit into this world. Then there is her sexy stepbrother who her father leaves her with for the summer while he runs off to Paris with his wife. Rush is as spoiled as he is gorgeous. He is also getting under her skin. She knows he is anything but good for her and that he’ll never be faithful to anyone. He is jaded and has secrets Blaire knows she may never uncover but even knowing all of that…

Blaire just may have fallen too far.

Cover:  Love this cover.  Cute, sweet and sexy.  Love the colours and that also, everything is as the author described character wise.  I hate it when the models on the cover don't match the characters in the book, but this one does 100%. 

As we all know I am loving the new adult genre and I've heard nothing but amazing praise for Abbi Glines' books and this is the first one I've read but it will not be the last.  I was completely addicted to this book, reading it in under 24 hours.  I just couldn't put it down.
I know a lot of people don't like the innocent-virgin-meets-player-type, but it's  a romantic cliche that I for one, really enjoy and Abbi Glines did an amazing job of it.
I thought the chemistry between Blaire and Rush was amazing, and I was really rooting for them. 
We all love to hate a good bitch, and this novel was full of them.
I loved Blaire's character- she's sweet and innocent but also has a backbone, and I really respected how she dealt with everything life has thrown at her and how she coped.
Rush...ah how I loved him most of all.
He's the typical player type but he wants Blaire and thinks he's not good enough for her and shouldn't touch her.
Of course they inevitably cave.
The only thing I wanted was Rush's point of view.  There were so many times when I wanted to know his take on things, how he was feeling, etc.
Woah...the end of this book was brutal.  I'm still reeling.  I hated it.  Was sooooo NOT what I wanted to happen it ain't even funny.  My soul was crushed.
I needed to delve into book 2 right away so bare that in mind if you're thinking of picking this one up.  And you should be thinking of picking this one up.
Over all I really freaking loved this book.  On my my new New Adult obsessions for sure, and definitely one of the best I've read so far.
It just had one of my MAJOR pet peeves in...which I can't tell ya for the sake of spoilers, but it only knocked off a 0.5 because everything else was still fantastic- the characters-both the ones you love to love and the ones you love to hate, the writing, and the romance.
Highly recommend this one.
4.5/5 stars.
