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.
Even though I already knew the outcome of Rush and Blaire's relationship, getting this story from Rush's point of view may have broken my heart just a little more, or a lot, and made me fall for him that much more. I got so wrapped up in reading Rush's story/point of view, I couldn't help but be emotionally connected to the story. It was so emotional watching these two go through all they did, and come to terms with the harsh and heartbreaking realities they had to face.
What a great addition to this series. I loved getting to know Rush on a different level. It was great to get the story from his point of view, and understand all he was thinking and feeling. He and Blaire definitely have their fair share of crap they deal with. Though Blaire comes across as the strong one in the series, Rush is down right awesome. Seeing this nerves of steel guy break down ripped my heart out. Hence the Abbi Glines made me cry comment. *sniffs* That scene.... This is a book fans of Abbi's Rosemary Beach & Too Far series will love.
*This is a book for readers 18+ yrs & older readers. It's a guilty pleasures read for a reason. There are some sexy time scenes (sex scenes), talks about sex and profanity.
