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.

In my quest to read each and every Abbi Glines book out there, I’ve moved on to her Rosemary Beach Series! I adored Fallen Too Far6 (book 1) and couldn’t wait to keep reading about Rush and Blaire!

I loved book 2, I really did! But? There was one part that just…. UGH! (Spoiler below – but be warned, it’s a rant!) If the last 25% of this book never happened it would be a five star book for me – but the last 25%? Blaire just made me so mad I am debating not reading the rest of the series.

So we have Blaire – who has left Rush and Rosemary Beach after the mother of all bombshells was dropped on her. We have Rush who is heartbroken (and it’s sweet in such a pathetic way!) And I so badly wanted them back together, in Fallen Too Far it was obvious that they were meant to be.

Never Too Far (spoiler rant aside) has all the aspects of an Abbi Glines book that I have come to love. Her characters are realistic – although they have a small bit of the unattainable, to make it just enough of a fantasy world! I love Rush, I love that he’s been so unattached until he finds Blaire. And Blaire is so broken, that you can’t help but want to take her under your wing.  (Until the inexcusable happens.)

Really, Never Too Far was a great book – although the last 20% or so has me questioning if I will finish this series. (Which is really too bad, because it has such promise.)
