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.
Being back in the world Abbi created was nice. Though I was hoping Never Too Far was going to be a bit better than the first book, it really didn’t meet my expectations that much. I’m going to be straight. I’m kind of disappointed in this series. I have read other works by Abbi and loved them! I felt that she tried to rush this series a bit too much, and I could feel that.
"You're my family."
Now, I definitely saw some growth in the characters, and I came to like them a little bit more. Blaire is still the bad ass chick I enjoyed in the first book, and it was nice being in her head again. She definitely is able to stand on her own two feet, despite what is going on around her. And with everything that happens to her, I saw her get a bit stronger. However, at times, I did want to shake her.
Rush’s and Blaire’s relationship definitely starts to heat up, and I did enjoy that. But I felt that their relationship moved too fast for my liking, as I mentioned in my first review. But I do feel their relationship was somewhat more stable than in the first book. But again, they really get tested in many ways, relationship wise, and emotional wise, too. What ticked me off the most was the decisions that Rush made. That really made me want to shake his character, and slap some sense into him.
There was also some side character that drove me crazy! Some that I really wish I could just bitch slap the hell out of them!
Never Too Far definitely turns the series around when certain events unfold. And I was really proud of some of the decisions Blaire made. Though I could shake both Rush and Blaire, I have started to care for them more than I did in the first book. I still think that the relationship between Blaire and Rush is beautiful. But, hey, I’m a sucker for romance!“I don't just love her, she owns me. Completely. I'd do anything for her”
Though this one felt a bit better than the first book, I still cannot fall in love with the series. No matter how much I wish I could. It is still a good, emotional, and angst filled read though.
