Synopsis: 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.

What I Thought:

I am so glad I waited years after purchasing this series to read it. The wait for this sequel would've driven me batty. As it is, the moment I finished Fallen Too Far, I picked up Never Too Far and immediately immersed myself in Rush and Blaire once again. The magic Abbi created in the first book quickly captured my attention once again and carried me away to Rosemary Beach.

One big change I noticed in the story was how it was now told from dual points of view.  I had always loved being in Blaire's head, but being in Rush's head was amazing. His intense feelings for Blaire were magnified ten times and it showed. I will say my Rush Crush fully blossomed in this book.  It was impossible not too.

I loved how strong Blaire remained even after discovering some hard truths. She was the epitome of grace under fire and she maintained that strength through all the challenges that came her way.  I have to give props to Bethy for being a great friend, even knowing the emotional burden for Blaire. 

Another aspect of the book I really enjoyed was how many twists this book took.  I thought I knew what was going to happen or had happened, and all of a sudden, I was finding out so many things were lies.  Those lies totally changed things in Rosemary for a lot of people. I was really stunned by the way things were turned on their heads.  I will also say this and then go hide in the corner.  I felt really horrible for Nan. She was a total female dog to Blaire and everyone else around her, but she was looking for parental love, something she'd never had.  

Abbi Glines has once again given me a surreal reading experience.  I loved seeing the gang from Rosemary Beach and the developments between them all.  I can't wait to read Forever Too Far and find out what else is will be turning my head in shock.  This series keeps getting better and better and I'm totally loving it.
