Review: NEVER TOO FAR by Abbi Glines


Author: Abbi Glines

This is a New Adult/ Adult read

He had held a secret that destroyed her world.

Everything she had known was no longer true.

Blaire couldn’t stop loving him but she knew she could never forgive him.
Now, she was back home and learning to live again. Moving on with life… until something happened to send her world spinning once again.
What do you do when the one person you can never trust again is the one that you need to trust so desperately?

You lie, hide, avoid, and pray that your sins never find you out.

My take...
Holy Moly. That is the only thing I can say when Blaire realizes her troubles just doubled. Bless her heart...the girl can't win for nothing.  But however, I did love that we get a chance to see a little more of her hometown of Sumit and of Cain. I tried to like him, I did, but it just wasn't there. He was trying to come off as Mr. No One Can Love You Like Me. And he was right. No one in their right mind would love Blaire that way. He was an asshat plain and simple. Blaire deserved more than that kind of love.

Poor Rush, oh my sweet poor Rush. I loved him dearly in this book. Even the times he messes up. But I know he was trying and it was hard being stuck in the middle of the woman he loves and the family he loves. His family was selfishly pulling him away from Blaire. But Blaire was being a good person about it all. She didn't want to pull him away for her selfish reasons. Even though she desperately wants to be with him she wants him to choose for himself what he wants.

NEVER TOO FAR is another one of those books that is based solely on assumptions. Yep, the saying is true...everybody has one. If for one second these 2 people would have just stopped and heard one another out everything would have been great by the third chapter. But where is the fun in that? Right? Assumptions gets everyone all riled up and in a tizzy and that is exactly what I want in my book. I need that drama. Will they believe the lies...will they listen to their heart...will they leave and never come back? I.NEED.THAT. If everything is rainbows and butterflies there is no story. I need the angst that comes with the romance. And NEVER TOO FAR delivered the angst and the romance.

Now off to read the bonus chapter at Abbi Glines' website (but don't read until you have read book books) and pray for a quick release to Rush and Blaire's next book. Cause this chick is dying of anticipation for it.

  1. The ending was a bit too abrupt for me, and while this I enjoyed reading NTF, I still didn't enjoy it as much as I enjoyed Fallen Too Far.

    I agree with you though - I'm dying for the 3rd book myself!
