Warning: Since this is the fourth book in a series, the summary and my review may contain spoilers for the previous books.
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 book didn't add much to the story. There are a few things revealed that the reader didn't know when reading Fallen Too Far. Therefore, some of the story line makes more sense, and some pieces fall into place. Seeing some side characters from a different perspective did surprise me, especially Grant! However, this is just basically more Rush.
If you are someone who has a "Rush Crush", then you will enjoy this book. Don't get me wrong, I grew to love him, but he's not a big male character 'crush' of mine, especially in the first book. Some of the moments did make me saw "awww", but mostly for me, this was just a quick, somewhat fun, read.
Was this book totally necessary? No.
I would suggest continuing on with the Rosemary Beach series after Forever Too Far or with other books, then coming back to read this. Then, there may be a bit more of a nostalgia aspect, making it more enjoyable and not as repetitive.
If you love Rush, you'll love this. If you didn't love his character so much, then I would recommend skipping this one.
