My future was about to be completely thrown off track because Della Sloane was under my skin, and I had to have her. I couldn’t ignore it anymore . . . I’d gotten close enough to her to see deeper.
Della Sloane is not your average girl. Yearning to break free of her dark and sheltered past and the memories of the illness that claimed her mother, Della plans a solo road trip to experience real life on her own terms. But the trip is nearly cut short in the little beach town of Rosemary when she realizes she can’t even pump her own gas—until Woods Kerrington shows up, more than willing to help out a pretty girl in need.
Woods’s family wants him to settle down with a wealthy woman in pearls, but he can’t resist this carefree girl in cutoffs passing through town. A one-night stand should have been enough, but months later, Woods can’t get the irresistible Della out of his head.
When a twist of fate brings Della back to Woods, all signs point to trouble if they don’t keep their distance. Neither is truly free, and a relationship could destroy both of them. With their hearts on the line, Della thinks the safest bet is to walk away. But Woods isn’t about to let that happen...

I'm proud to be a bookaholic...addicted, obsessed, passionate!!! My favorite way to relax & escape reality....
Abbi writes books that are absolutely addicting. Once you’ve read an Abbi Glines book you’ll be hooked for life. This is not a light and easy romance. It deals with dark issues and struggles. It's heartbreaking and heartwarming. Tragic and hopeful. Weakness and Strength. Passion. Fear. Anxiety. Lust. Love. Woods and Della. Della is so broken. She’s a shattered girl trying to find herself in a world that she has no idea how to live in. After a torturous childhood Della is given the opportunity by her best friend to go out into the world and “find herself.” She needs to learn to be independent and to find some sort of freedom from a childhood that haunts her every moment. Della just wants to experience all the ups and downs that go with a normal life. Woods is working hard to take over the family business. He wants the vice president job but his father will only allow this if he agrees to an arranged marriage. He unhappily agrees until Della and Woods lay eyes on each other it’s LUST at first sight. The chemistry is addictive! This book was seriously hot. And sweet. And passionate. And full of love, and self discovery, and self acceptance. In other words, it was simply amazing. Once again, I am blown away at how much I love the worlds Abbi creates. The people she dreams up, and the emotions they bring me.
Busy mom who loves to read but doesn't always have the time. I enjoy YA, Romance and the occasional Best Seller.
I loved Woods from Fallen Too Far and I'm so glad he got his own book. It was fun to get an inside look into what makes him tick. This was such an enjoyable and at times a heartbreaking listen. I love the characters that Abbi Glines creates. I can get lost in her books for hours. Hopefully Audible will get all the books from the Fallen series soon.
Wife, mom, and book lover
Yes, Abbi Glines books are my guilty pleasure
Della had self esteem issues but her backstory makes that ubderstandable and tolerable
Yes and I love both the narrators...Sebastian York's voice is like melted sex
I really enjoy that both a female and a male narrate this book! This makes it amazing to have both perspectives.
They were both very believable as characters.
Couldn't stop listening from start to finish!
Yet another winner in the sweet romance niche that Abbi Glines has perfected. I loved Woods when he was introduced in the 'Fallen' series, so I was eager to hear his story. I wasn't disappointed in the least. In all honesty, I was super excited that Sebastian York was the narrator---his voice added another layer of yum to Woods' appeal. Della was a sweet character and despite her really tragic childhood, she and Woods find a special love. Probably the main gripe I have is the female narrator, she should probably retire from voiceover work.
Looking forward to hearing what happens next for Della and Woods!
Loved how the one night stand between Della and Woods changed both of their paths for ever after. Another great audio book.
Will do anything for books!
I so enjoyed reading (hearing) this book, I didn't realize it happened before the last of Blaire & Rush's book so it was a bit out of order for me, but it was great!!! This shows us how Della and Woods meet and the beginning of their relationship, it ends right at a serious point and so of course you have to keep going. Great story. We see some events with Rush and Blaire which is great, love this one.
In the top tier
Woods-is impossible not to love
the meet cute
made me laugh and cry
While looking for something new I decided to take a chance on this book & I'm so glad I did. From the very first line you know you're not listening to just another boy meets girls and have some trouble in-between. Abbi Glines has some great story ideas that keep you listening. And even if you're not crazy about the story, narrator Sebastian York will keep you listening. He has to have one for the sexiest voices I have yet to hear. He certainly makes it worth while.
It's all about romance in my library! I have a wonderful husband, children and my grandchildren they are my rock.
Yes, I love the beginning how they met.
How love conquers all!
They brought the characters to live - they both did an amazing job. You won't be disappointed.
Not really - but it keep you on edge. Made you feel you can't stop listening to the story.
