You lie, hide, avoid, and pray that your sins NEVER FIND YOU OUT.
What I love about Abbi Glines books is that they are always a good, easy, solid read. While her books generally have a simplistic plot, what’s important to me as the reader is she has this ability to create alluring and sexy characters with such chemistry, that it consumes me. These characters are what make her books become so addictive!
Never too Far was exactly that – Addictive! I consumed the book in a few hours, I just couldn’t put it down! This book delivered everything a reader could ask for – great chemistry, a great love story, great character development and great hot passionate sex!
Never too Far takes off straight after Fallen too Far with Blaire returning home to Alabama devastated after discovering the truth behind Rush’s secret and Nanette’s hatred towards her, only to discover that she is pregnant with Rush’s baby. With no family and no money, she decides to return to Rosemary and stay with her friend Bethy and get her old job back at the clubhouse, so she can save enough money to start a new life somewhere with her baby. When Rush finds out about Blaire’s homecoming, he will do anything in his power to win her back and never let her go again, especially once he discovers she is pregnant. However, Rush struggles to balance his love for Blaire and his love for his sister and family who clearly hate Blaire and will never except her. So Rush has to make a choice between the two women he loves most in this world.
This book was written in both Blaire and Rush’s point of view in alternating chapters, which personally took this story to another level. In my review of Fallen too Far, I stated I was really disappointed in Rush’s character; that I felt he lacked depth, overall bite and general believability. This is not so in Never too Far, the reader is now seeing things from Rush’s perspective, being inside his head to know what he is thinking and witnessing his internal battle of balancing his love for Blaire and his sister. This insight gave Rush’s character much more depth and creditability, which was needed for readers to establish a connection with his character.
Blaire’s character remained true to herself with her beautiful unfailing nature but it was the secondary characters such as Woods, Bethy and Blaire’s Father who showed some pleasant and interesting character development. Blaire’s father is a character I find hard to understand and I cannot comprehend the reasoning behind his decisions – he just baffles me! The character of Georgianna, who was never actually involved in this book but whose presence was everywhere, was the catalyst behind all this drama and is the back bone to the whole plot of the series – What a lying, jealous, bitter, mean, self centered, manipulative, character – who is in desperate need of therapy!
Overall this book fulfilled all of my expectations and I look forward to the next installment in Blaire and Rush’s life in Forever to Far!
