(Rush Too Far by Abbi Glines)


Hi everybody!! My name is Sara and my blog is The world of Sam. Now, I'm the advocate of Rush from Too far series and more recently, from Rush too far by Abbi Glinnes. OMG!! I completely in love whit Rush, he is one of my beloved book boyfrinds.

Do you know him? Maybe a picture help...

And if the answer is still NO, let me introducing him

First of all, let's start with the physical, and if I just have to describe him in three words, would be:


Just imagine this combination: Bad boy, tatoos, amazing abs, a sexy voice, lips that are totally made for kissing, but my personal favorite are his eyes.

Like Blair says:

"They were an odd color. Stunningly unusual. They weren't brown. They weren't hazel. They were a warm color with some silver laced through them. I'd never seen anything like them."

"Those eyes of his were incredible. The thick black lashes that framed them almost looked like eyeliner. He had an all-natural highlighter around his eyes"

Nothing more sexy than a guy with a beautiful and expressive eyes, only imagine that he look at you with desire or better yet, with love? I'm probably dead of a heart attack LOL! 


It may be rude, but don't be fooled, he is a great guy with a big heart. Perhaps he can push the limits of what may not be correct, but it does so only in order to protect those whom he loves. 
His change of womanizer to a single girl guy is impressive. Not to mention that it is fair and that when he loves, does so in spite of everything, I want to say he loves his sister. Nan, who is something like... a bad girl.

His skill with words is simply another detail that makes you fall in love, maybe it's not Romeo, but...

"You said everything that i needed to hear. I'm hoocked now. You have me"

I mean, as do not fall in love when he says things like this:

"Listen to me, Balir. If you try to go anywhere I will chase you down, I will become your shadow"

or something more hot...

"Please, what,  baby. Tell me What it is you want?" 

but my favorite:

If I still don't have fallen in love with him, let me tell you the detail that made me drool and wish a guy like him. He wrote a song, can you believe it? He wrote a song for Blair. I don't know about you, but i loved that a guy write me a song.  is it not very romantic?

Now, you already know everything! so you vote for the sexy, romantic and wonderful Rush Finlay.

(Beautiful Addictions by Season Vining)

Tristan Fallbrook

Hello! I am Brinda, from WiLoveBooks. I am a mom, teacher, and reader of many books, here to tell you why you need to vote for Tristan Fallbrook from Beautiful Addictions by Season Vining for NA Crush. 

What makes BA Tristan crushworthy?

Personality - 
He has a genius IQ, but is not conceited about it. His photographic memory makes him socially awkward at times, which is just endearing. He is mysterious and dangerous and fiercely protective. 

He's honest and direct:
I want you. All of you. I want to possess you. I want to love you and protect you.

So, can I take you out?” Tristan repeated.Out of the apartment?Out on a date,” he clarified. A date?” Josie asked, her frightened voice making the words sound foreign. You know, an appointment for a particular time, especially with a person to whom one is sexually or romantically attached.Are we attached?” she asked, not really knowing what she wanted the answer to be.More than you know,” he answered. 

He is also determined:
Tristan found himself on the edge of a precipice. He wanted to make her happy, but leaving would appease her only for the moment. He knew, more than she did, that she needed him to stay. Tristan squared his shoulders and prepared for battle.
You bet your fine ass we will.Tristan chuckled and felt relieved at her teasing tone.You think my ass is fine?” he asked.I think all of you is fine,” Josie said dryly.By what ratio do you like my ass compared to the rest of my body, considering it only represents approximately 9 percent of my 575 inches of overall body surface area,” he teased.

And sweet:
I loved you from the first time I saw you,” he whispered, placing a soft kiss against her neck. We were seven years old. Your hair was in braids. You were new to school and had nowhere to sit at lunch. You marched over and offered me your pudding if Id let you sit down. 
Did you let me sit down?” she asked. 
Hell, yes. It was chocolate pudding.

Did I mention he's smart?
What makes them glow?” Josie asked, leaning against the scratchy bark of the old tree and trying to follow the fireflies’ glow.A type of chemical reaction called bioluminescence. The enzyme luciferase acts on the luciferin, in the presence of magnesium ions, ATP, and oxygen to produce light,’” Tristan answered, running his hands over her denim-covered thigh.Josie rolled her eyes and smiled at him, showing that she loved his superior intellect just as much as his handsome face. She watched him watching her and no longer feared judgment or rejection. She loved having his eyes on her, among other things. 

Looks - 
Tristan is 6’ 2", with a defined body, two sleeves of tattoos (plus more), black hair, green eyes, a strong jaw, and sometimes wears reading glasses.

He lay on top of the covers, his bare feet crossed at the ankles. His black pajama pants sat low on his hips, immediately coaxing her eyes upward. Each peak and valley of his muscled chest and abdomen were highlighted by the suns rays, causing golden shadows across his skin. The vibrant shapes and twisting lines of ink clung to his arms as if they never could belong anywhere else. Long fingers wrapped around a weathered paperback book that was folded over on itself. His hair was growing out now and had become a bit of a zigzag-patterned mess. The stubble on his jaw caused a slightly darker shadow to his face, and she hummed at the memory of what it felt like beneath her fingertips. Tristans mouth was open just slightly, his pink tongue sliding back and forth across his bottom lip keeping time with his eyes on the page. Perched halfway down his nose sat a pair of black-rimmed glasses. 
Youre staring,” he said without looking up from his book. 
Since when do you wear glasses?"
 Oh,” he said, instantly reaching to pull them off. Sometimes when I read.
Josie grabbed his hand, halting his movements and smiled up at him. I love them.

Extra Stuff -
An Amazon.com reviewer says, The character of Tristan is amazingly complex, the bad-boy with the genius IQ, inked and infinitely intriguing. Cover those tats with an Armani suit, groom him to GQ perfection, and he would still radiate raw appeal.”  

He drives a bad ass vintage muscle car 67 Impala.

Can mix a mean drink. He's a bartender.

He loves books:
When they stepped into Upstart Crow, a coffeehouse and bookstore, Josie could see how Tristan delighted in being surrounded by the written word. She just knew he could spend hours scouring every shelf for books. While she didnt share his passion, she loved seeing him happy and in his element.Dont worry, Ill limit myself,” he said, placing a kiss on her cheek.He pulled her down row after row of books. When something caught his attention, he would examine the cover as if studying a painting. Then hed flip to the back and read whatever review or description was there. Last, hed fan the pages a few times. Josie marveled at the ritual and smiled every time he handed her one to buy.
And his apartment:
Sure, the walls were white and the carpet was tan, but that is where the generic appearance ended. There was a built-in bookcase lining one wall, with a space cut out for a television. The entire thing was filled with books. New books, old books, hardbacks, paperbacks, every kind of book she could imagine created a patchwork mosaic look to the otherwise plain space. My collection.Josie jumped at his proximity. She turned to face Tristan, leaning against the shelf. 
I can see that,” she answered. 

Vote for Tristan Fallbrook for NA Crush because he is the total package. A highly intelligent, sweet, sexy guy with beautiful ink who loves books. What's not to love? 

His face was perfection as far as she was concernedhair that she loved to run her fingers through, eyes that always saw through her bullshit, and lips that spoke words of adoration. The feel of his body wrapped around hers was intoxicating and she couldnt remember ever wanting anything or anyone more than she wanted him. But what was most intriguing was what lay inside this amazing, complicated man. All of his memories, his intellect, his unwavering love and devotion for a girl like her is what made Tristan her perfect and beautiful addiction.
