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.
“Everyone always says that love was enough. It wasn’t. Not when your soul has been shattered.”
I enjoyed this book. It left me reeling and wanting more after an ending that I never expected. I’ve never had a book end like this one and if you have read it, you understand. The reason the book got a low rating from me though, was for a few reasons. I didn’t like Blaire as a main character. A lot of her decisions really confused me and made me go wtf? Her personality made me angry especially at the end. Her decisions for the last five chapters of the book were stupid and selfish and I really had to make myself not throw the book across the room. The book was also a little predictable. I saw the plot twist in the end coming from the very beginning. The book was addicting though. I hate it, but the ending was so good and it made me want to read the next one. I have strongly mixed feelings about it and I will be continuing begrudgingly.
