To everyone who knows him, West Ashby has always been that guy: the cocky, popular, way-too-handsome-for-his-own-good football god who led Lawton High to the state championships. But while West may be Big Man on Campus on the outside, on the inside he’s battling the grief that comes with watching his father slowly die of cancer.

Two years ago, Maggie Carleton’s life fell apart when her father murdered her mother. And after she told the police what happened, she stopped speaking and hasn’t spoken since. Even the move to Lawton, Alabama, couldn’t draw Maggie back out. So she stayed quiet, keeping her sorrow and her fractured heart hidden away.

As West’s pain becomes too much to handle, he knows he needs to talk to someone about his father — so in the dark shadows of a post-game party, he opens up to the one girl who he knows won’t tell anyone else.

West expected that talking about his dad would bring some relief, or at least a flood of emotions he couldn’t control. But he never expected the quiet new girl to reply, to reveal a pain even deeper than his own — or for them to form a connection so strong that he couldn’t ever let her go…

The Book Courtship Book Tag

Okay, this is the first post in here, in which there isn’t an exact book or an author that I write about. But yesterday was the first time that somebody tagged the blog and I thought why not doing it, so here I am.

It’s “The Book Courtship Book Tag” and I was tagged by Travelling In My Bookcase Blog. The Book Courtship Tag which was originally created by LovelyLikeLaura.

Phase 1 – Initial Attraction: A book that you bought because of the cover?

Fallen Too FarThis is definitely “Fallen Too Far” by Abbi Glines. I just fell in love when I saw the cover. And since I know that Abbi Glines is a good writer I just bought the book. Instantly. Check the Bulgarian cover that actually got me in here.

Phase 2 – First Impressions: A book that you got because of the summary?

A Discovery of WitchesI first saw the book in the local library, and when I read what’s it all about I just decided that it’s my book. And the big love has just began.

Phase 3 – Sweet Talk: A book with great writing?

The Lord of the RingsAll 3 books are amazingly writen in Tolkien’s style. I love this man and the world he had created. I’ve been lost there so many times.

Phase 4 – First Date: A first book of a series which made you want to pick up the rest of the series?

TwilightI’ve seen and heard so many people to talk bad about this book series, but I don’t really care. I just like it. The book wasn’t released in Bulgaria, so my first meeting with it was a fan translation, but a really good one. Being honest I read all the books online. After that Egmont Bulgaria bought the rights and now I have them all in my house.

Phase 5 – Late Night Phone Calls: A book that kept you up all night?

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood PrinceOne of my cousins has bought the book before me and I was so envious. I asked him to give it to me, so I can read it and he was good and gave it the same day. I started to read at 7pm and I finished at 5am. I didn’t even bother myself to sleep. It was good that I was in a summer holidays.

Phase 6 – Always on my mind: A book you could not stop thinking about?

This is it. This is a special book and beginning of a special series.

Phase 7 – Getting Physical: A book which you love the way it feels?

Fortune is a WomanThis is a book, that I just love. It’s writing, the way it makes me feel, the passion and the message it leaves! Deserves reading!

Phase 8 – Meeting the parents: A book which you would recommend to your family and friends?

“Shogun” by James Clavell is the book, that I can highly recommend. True and interesting, it is such kind of book, which can make you think about lots of things.

Phase 9 – Thinking about the future: A book or series you know you will re read many times in the future?

“Vampire Academy” series, 100%. It may not be many people’s favorite, but I read this book in a very hard moment of my life and it kept me safe, not thinking about bad things, but only about the plot and what is going to happen next. Definitely will re read the whole series many times.

Phase 10 – Share the love: Who do you tag?

To want what you’re not supposed to have…

She is only nineteen.

She is his new stepfather’s daughter.

She is still naive 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.

My impression:
As I really do like Abbi Glines and her style, I was absolutely tempted to read her books. And when I understood that this book is going to be published in my language I decided that I must have it for sure. Of course, 2 days after it was released I pay a visit to the book store and bought it for my collection.

I started to read it right after I left the book store and sat down in the city center. It is absolutely easy-going book, with interesting story and nice dialogues. This is a book, which when you start reading, you just can’t stop it.

Blaire is sweet, good girl, falling for the wrong guy. Rush, of course, son of a rock star, falls for her, and – of course – he shouldn’t be with her. He is gourgeous and have a secret. Kind of a story with awaited good end. But everything turns down and the end is unexpected. It makes you want to start reading the next book right after you finish the current one.

Two paths.
Two completely different roads.
Each one standing before me.
Each one holding a different destiny.

In life you’re just supposed to choose one path.
In life you’re not given the chance at choosing one specific future.

Until now.
Until me.

Why am I different? I don’t know. But I’m going to see those roads and walk down each one. When it’s over I’ll know which one to choose because I’ll know my – options.

Order Options – TBA!
