The New York Times bestselling novel that continues the passionate story of Rush and Blaire from Fallen Too Far.

Our relationship had been short. Intense and brief. I wondered what it would have felt like 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.

Just when Blaire allowed herself to fall for her stepbrother, Rush, he revealed a life-altering secret so devastating that she couldn’t forgive him. Unable to face him again, Blaire leaves the promise of true love behind in Rosemary Beach and returns to the comforts of her small town in Alabama, wanting nothing more than to put the summer behind her.

But unexpected news complicates Blaire’s plans, and she’s forced to trust the one man she shouldn’t. Trapped between Rush’s fierce desire to win her back and her own sense of self-preservation, Blaire doesn’t know if she’s doing the right thing…or if she’s making the biggest mistake of her life.


Never Too Far was just… Meh for me.                                                                                       

Not a whole lot to gush about with this book. I really wish there was but the cold hard truth is that…

There just wasn’t…

I still had a hard time connecting with Blair in this story. She just seems like a flat character with no personality.

This book didn’t have a plot to me but surprisingly enough I never found a dull or slow moment because I love Rush. I connected with him more than I actually did with Blaire. It was just the fact rat I felt I could tap into his head and his emotions before I could do that with Blaire.

I mean she was almost homeless for a while there but I still couldn’t connect with her because she had no kind of reactions. I felt like she was just like:

“Oh, I have no house.” shrugs her shoulder, “Well that’s fine. I’ll just walk around until I find somewhere to stay. “


It was like  reading about a lifeless puppet the entire time.


I think it was the lack of emotions Blaire had and the fact that she never had any “character reactions” I couldn’t relate to her at all.

There also isn’t isn’t a lot of plot progression here. Basically Blaire has to hold a big secret from Rush. She tried to stay  away from him but that secret was the one that made her have to run back to him in the end.

I love the love that Blaire and Rush share so this fact alone was the reason I kept swiping the pages on my Kindle.

I was going to by the next book in the series. I say WAS in the past tense because the next book costs a whopping eight freaking dollars! Eight dollars is way too much for an E-book IMO. 🙁

IMO the sole purpose of me buying an e-book is to have the books cheaper. It doesn’t mess early mean rest book is going to be cheaper but you have a better chance of getting a good deal. So I don’t appreciate having to pay 8 dollars for a book that’s only 234 pages.

So guess I’ll just wait until the price goes down which may be never but the story didn’t have much of a progression anyway.



I’ll just be playing the waiting game and pray that the price goes down soon. What were thoughts on the book and what did you think about the last book in the series since I have yet to read it yet?;)

                     Five steaming lattes. 😉

  1. I have to admit, I haven’t had much luck with Abbi Glines but I’m guessing I need to give her another chance? All her books are extremely popular. Anyway, you should see if you can borrow kindle books from your local library. Not every library does it but many do and it’s awesome! 🙂

    • I will try that Cristina. I just can’t stand seeing my money go on a book with only a handful of pages and I’ll be done reading it in one day! Ugh.

  2. I am not a fan of book heroines with no personality. Probably why I didn’t enjoy Twilight (although, at least it was original, right?) LOL, yeah it can be hard to get into a book when the main character fell flat, but I am glad you connected with Rush anyways. 🙂
