Synopsis

NeverTooFar-684x1024

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 Review

This book did not disappoint.  The story begins 3 weeks after the cliffhanger conclusion of the first book, Fallen Too Far. I don’t want to include spoilers, but you are immediately thrown back in to the stress, angst and insecurity that is the relationship between Rush Finlay and Blaire Wynn.

A plot twist at the beginning dictates the direction of the story line and takes you for a ride. There are significant ups and downs throughout, that although you are rooting for Rush and Blaire, keeps you questioning if they can put aside their insecurities and surpass their flaws to give them a real shot at a relationship. While FTF (book 1) propelled them into an all-consuming, fast-paced relationship that sent you *happily* reeling, NTF, takes the time to further explore the difficulties of them coming together.

“Our relationship had been short. Intense and brief. I wondered what it would have felt like to have the freedom to curl up in Rush’s arms anytime I wanted. To know I was safe and that he loved me. We’d never had that chance.”

Rush makes mistakes… many of them… that build doubt in Blaire’s mind. It was crushing to read through it sometimes. Blaire continues to think she doesn’t fit into Rush’s world and that he’ll continue to put his family, namely Nan, first. But Rush insists…

“No. One. Comes. Before. You.”

And despite Rush’s mistakes, you gotta love that he owned up to them each time. That’s what’s so great about him. He’s flawed, but relentless in his love for Blaire. There were times in the book I felt like I wanted to scream at them, to get over it and just be!!! (Reminded me of how I felt reading Crush by Nicole Williams) But then again, they are young, in love and in a relationship that hasn’t had the sturdiest of foundations. But you know they are meant to be together and they need to push through it!!!! And as many times as Rush messes up, you wholeheartedly feel the intensity of his love for Blaire. And that ladies, is what makes Rush so swoon-worthy!!!!

“No man has ever loved a woman as much as I love you.”

*melts*

I also loved reading about Bethy, Woods and even Cain. By the end of the book, you are happy, but left wanting. I had hoped that there was an Epilogue, but I’m hoping Abbi Glines gives them a book 3. I feel like the story isn’t complete yet… I want so much more. I’d like a coming together for Nan and Blaire. And what about Blaire’s father??? Not who I thought he was! Luckily for us readers, Abbi posted on facebook today that if she gets 500 reviews on Amazon, she’ll write a bonus chapter and Epilogue! ANNNNDDDD… if it hits #1 on Amazon, she’ll write a third book! So fingers crossed and download the damn book!!!

Overall, such a great book to read! Just like the story, it’s intense, you can’t help but devour the book just to see what happens.

  1. With that many stars, I am looking forward to starting this series

  2. I really liked this book but I believe the story had more potential, more to tell. It did not make my heart race as the first book.

    • There is a book 3 coming out late summer!!! It didn’t feel complete to me either! And Twisted Perfection, a novel about Woods, is coming out soon 🙂
