Never Too Far (#2)
by: Abbi Glines
★★★★ 4 StarsBlurb: 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.
If you read Fallen Too Far, then reading Never Too Far is essential. Honestly, it is so much better now that the truth is out. I am a sucker for a pregnancy story and this book did not disappoint.
Blaire remains extremely strong and is determined to see things through, alone if that's how things turn out. She is very admirable as she yet again barely complains and works her butt off to survive.
Her friendship with Bethy continues and though the two are as opposite as can be they complement each other well. I was happy she and her boy-toy managed to work things out as unbelievable as that may be. Though, I doubt it will last and eventually Bethy too, will have her own story within the series.
We get to see the real turn around for Rush. Blaire leaving was the catalyst he needed to set him straight. He begins to defend her to Nan and doesn't let the (fake) truth hurt her anymore than it has.
Okay I have seriously fallen in love with Woods. If Blaire wasn't pregnant with Rush's baby I might hope for a switch-a-roo. He is so sweet and looks out for her even in book one. He never lets his money or influence go to his head and I hope he gets his own HEA very soon. I couldn’t help but feel bad for him like every experience and chat he had with Blaire was like a crushing blow to his heart and mine.
I was thankful Blaire did not keep the pregnancy quiet for very long. Yes, she may blurt out the truth but it’s better for him to know the truth. Plus, when he found out she was able to see that he really wanted to be were her before and after he knew and it wasn’t just because she was preggers.
I was a little put off by Nan, once again, and her friend back home but other than that I loved everything. Even though she was injured I was on team Blaire and it was hard to read Rush’s phone call which inevitably makes him miss another pre-natal appointment and when Nan lies about his family obligations coming first (the family that screws Blaire over every chance they get). No worse feeling for Blaire to get her hopes up about being a family only to have him blow her off. But alas, all is well in the end and once Nan recovers she even seems accepting of having a niece or nephew.
Never Too Far is a must read. It has its ups and downs but that’s what makes it so special. One minute you’ll hate it and the next you’ll love it but you won’t at any point want to put it down. I enjoyed every minute and now I wish they were longer or had a better ending/epilogue. Even another book would make me happy but I’m sure they’ll make reappearances in the next books. Out next is Twisted Perfection on April 23rd and this time it’s Woods’ story. I just hope it's complete and we don't have to wait months for the follow-up like this book and Fallen too Far.
*There is also a Goodreads page that mentions another book (book 6) in the series which is coming out this summer as more of Rush and Blaire's story, so I may get my wish but we'll have to wait and see what happens.
