Review: Never Too Far (Rosemary Beach #2) by Abbi Glines

never-too-farHe 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.

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.

Review – Never Too Far picks up exactly where we left Blaire in Fallen Too Far. She staying at Granny Q’s house with her ex-boyfriend Cain in Alabama. We soon find out that she is expecting and has no plans of rekindling her relationship with Cain but is at a loss as to what to do next. Blaire visits her mom and sister at the cemetery and she receives her answer…Bethy!!!!  She is a great friend and makes Blaire an offer that she can’t refuse.

Blaire is secure in her plan to keep Rush as a friend even though she loves him. She feels that Rush will always choose his mother and sister first.

“His sister hated me. His mother hated me. They hated my mother. And I hated my father. For Rush to be a part of this baby’s life he’d have to give them up. I couldn’t ask him to give up his mom and sister. Even if they were evil. He loved them.”

Rush will do anything to be near Blaire. He is a man in love and tries so hard to show Blaire that she can count on him. Rush lays the law down to Nan, he tells her to back off or she will loss all of his financial support as well as him. When he learns of the baby he is hell bent on protecting what’s his.

Nan remains the bitchy redheaded sister who is hell bent on squashing Blaire only this time Rush is having none of it.

Rush is once again all sorts of hot and alpha in this sequel. He has to learn quickly how to be in a relationship. He stumbles along the way but the fact remains that he will do anything for Blaire. Here is my one Rush complaint…Pick up your damn phone, he could have called while he sat vigil by Nan. The internal struggle between his sister and his future had me crazy. Rush quickly gets back on track with a little guidance from a surprise source. He is one hot man in love!

Grant switches sides one to many times in this book. I even felt that he may have been the secret lover at the condo.

Woods is the MAN! He never sways in his loyalty, love and friendship. He protects Blaire throughout this book make no mistake he loves her but from the get go does the right thing by her. He appears to play the middle letting Rush know the score but a reader knows he does it out of love for Blaire. Saying that I’m excited for his book is an understatement!

“If you aren’t going after her I am. She needs someone right now. As much as I don’t want it to be you because I don’t think you deserve her it needs to be you.” ~Woods

I wish there was epilogue or that the book was longer. I would have liked a scene between Nan and Blaire once Nan found out the truth. I want that wench on her knees with apologies or presents!

Overall, I couldn’t get enough of these great characters and I enjoyed every minute of this book. I read it in one sitting so that has to say something. Rush and Blaire were very HOT and STEAMY and the book left me very happy!!
