(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:
SO FUCKING HOT!!
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.

RIDGE(Maybe Someday by Colleen Hover)
Howdy y'all! Alana here from Dark Obsession Chronicles, A Diva a Day, GoodReads, and all-around book pimp. Not only that, but I live in Austin, TX where my crush from the NA Crush Tourney 2014 -Ridge from Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover - lives. Seems fitting that Ridge lives in the live music capital of the world; I'm not just whistling Dixie about his swoon-worthiness, so let me show you why...
One Word: Guitar
Y'all know if a guy can play a guitar, his swoon factor always goes up. It's a universal 'boy-truth'. But pair that with the fact that just the sheer fact of Ridge to be able to do that? *knees grow weak* I would venture a guess that every modern women has had at least one 'musical' crush at some point. It's practically encoded into our DNA to melt when a guy plays a guitar. And boy, oh, boy - the way he plays it!
"I realize he's playing with both hands, one from underneath my head and one over me, his head is against my chest, and I can heel his hair brush my neck. He's pretty much sprawled across me in order to reach his guitar with both arms."
I wish I could make a video half has wonderful as this one, and instead of making a mediocre attempt, let's just see Ridge in action in this video created by MollieK featuring music from the book's soundtrack.
That brings me to hot fact #2, not only does Ridge play the guitar, but he writes his own music and lyrics (when not plagued by writer's block.) OK, now picture, if you will Ridge writing these words, for you...
"But I must confess my interest
The way that you move when you’re in that dress
It’s making me feel like I want to be
The only man that you ever see "
- I'm in Trouble
"I want to be your end
But you gotta let it begin
So won’t you
Won’t you let it begin
So won’t you
Won’t you just say when"
- Let It Begin
Writing lyrics is a very intimate thing...
"Oh, Lord. What is he about to do? Put his hands on me? Does he want to feel me sing this song? Feeling requires touching, and touching required hands. His hands. Feeling me."
Now that you've got another peek at the oh-so-talented Ridge, let's catch another video of my favorite song written by Sydney and Ridge (during Maybe, Someday), performed by the actual writer Griffin Peterson. This beautiful man is the voice behind the soundtrack, and I think he makes a great Ridge himself (with the obvious main difference). This song, of all the music from Maybe, Someday, makes me think of Ridge and swoon.
“… holy crap. He’s beautiful.”
I know, you're saying, "OK, we get it, but what does he look like? Is he funny?"
He was hot enough to make Sydney gasp, full-on gasp, when she first saw him up close and personal.
"I don't think I've ever seen eyes that can actually speak." Unruly light brown hair, even the 'whore' thinks Ridge is "hot", his arms "look as if they were built for the sole purpose of carrying a guitar" and he looks "incredible" on stage. *Sigh* So, he's not an unattainably famous rock star, but rather a really hot boy-next-door with some serious talent. He's considerate enough to let you lounge on the bed while he sits on the uncomfortable floor. Funny? Considering the long-standing prank war in the apartment, he is ready to create humor at a moment's notice. Got an ex-boyfriend that needs punishing? Ridge will show you the merits of duct tape and fish; just don't leave any Sharpie markers lying around in his arm's reach.
“I failed miserably at trying not to fall in love with you." Me too, Ridge, me too.
To quote Sydney, “Oh, my dear sweet baby Jesus in a wicker basket."
He is the total package here ladies! Smart, dedicated, loyal, talented, funny, he's one fast texter, and he's a little bit evil. The evil bit is one of my favorite parts. There is simply not enough time and space to contain the enormous swoon of Ridge. He even finally 'gets' us girls...
See how great he is? There is no doubt you can see!
Won't you say 'When' and Vote for Ridge?
