Overview

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.

Typos galore! RUSH'ed ending with no closure. Not even close to the first book. :(

For someone who LOVED, LOVED, LOVED Fallen too Far, I was SO sad to read the sequel! I waited for months for the release of this book and I was left so disappointed! I agree with the reviews below. I felt like Rush's actions DID NOT support the things he told Blaire. I found it odd that his pregnant fiance had no car, little money and was working at the country club considering his financial status. I was waiting for him to pull a Christian Grey and try to take care of her but aside from buying her a bed, complaining about her bra being too small and cutting a check to Woods for her her rent, he never did. I was rooting for her to give Woods a shot in this book. Of the two of them, he was the one offering support. I also felt like there were no real twists or surprises. We spent the entire length of the book going back and forth between Blaire and Rush on whether they could make their relationship work and nothing really happened. And the ending.... wow! I was waiting for the book to kick into gear and it just ended!

Actions speak louderthan words. Rush is constantly giving overblown speeches about how much he loves Blaire but fails to show this in his behavior...other than sex. Now I am HUGE fan of sex but real love doesn't manifest itself in the physical only. In real life, kiddos, it really is the little stuff that counts. Like remembering the dr. appt to see your baby for the first time. Like NOT screaming at the mother of your child to get out of your car and leaving her alone. Nan is his sister not is child. I tried to like Rush but I just couldn't. Blaire pays a lot lip service to being strong and independent but fails miserably to demonstrate either quality.

Meh. While I loved the hot sex scenes, there were too many whiny misunderstandings in this tale for my taste. In the last book, Blaire was a kick ass, country force with a pistol. In this one, she grated on my nerves. And while the ending was cute, I was hoping for way more. Rush rocked, though. He will always remain one of my favorite reformed bad boys.

I have to say.... I was a bit disappointed with this book. I counted down the days and I could not wait. Stayed up all night and read the entire 812 pages. However, I did not feel the way I did when I read book one. This one seemed drawn out and a bit boring at times. It lacked the excitement of book 1. The second story could of went into an entire different direction. The first book left me crazy and wanting more. This one seemed to drag on and repeat the same thing over and over. While I am glad to have finished their journey, I was not crazy about this book.

I absolutely loved Fallen Too Far and fell in love with Rush and Blaire. I could not wait for the sequel, and unfortunately it was the biggest disappointment. The ending was so abrupt, I literally kept turning pages thinking there had to be more somewhere. There were so many strange loose ends left out there that it felt unfinished. I'm so sad because I really wanted to love it.

Fairly disappointed. I was such a big fan of Blaire because she was such a strong woman in the first book. This book made her very weak along with Rush. Was hoping for more excitement and twist only to be disappointed because this book is predicatable. I was also hoping for more.

Never Too Far was a huge let down. I have stayed up all night reading Abbi's books. But this one I skipped most of the book because the continous whinning grated on my nerves. Blaire had been one of my favorite characters...next to Low created by Abbie however Blaine spent more time focusing on her lowself esteem and not being the strong woman she had been in the previous book. Rush was mostly wonderful, but his follow through sucked. Maybe the release date should not have been moved up. Sorry Abbi i love your books but this one was less than interesting.

I loved this book! I love Blair and Rush! I just wish there was more. I feel like it ended soon. What was with Grant and Nan? So many more questions. Overall though I loved the story! Abbi has become my favorite author!

Honestly I can't decide if I love or hate this series. At times it's flat other times I feel like I'm reading a cliche. Rush irks me and I felt like all he did was apologize. I didn't feel development between the two that made me feel like it was working for them. I kinda feel let down. And good lord, the descriptive words whenever either of them came seriously had me laughing out loud it was so bad. What man screams aaarrrrrgggghhhh? Mental image of Rush dressed as a pirate... ugh. Bad. Not Glines best work. Rush and Blaire did mot develop in this book, they both maintained extreme immaturity. Disappointing.

I think she rushed to get a sequel out. The first book was great; couldn't put it down. I was left feeling unsatisfied with the ending to this one. I agree with one of the previous reviewers; too many loose ends.

This is my first review of a book.  I am an avid reader of many genres and have many different likes when it comes to books.  I am a fan of Abbi Glines.  I have purchased numerous of her books and enjoyed them all.  I was let down with this book.  While the book still keeps its steamy moments, it just dragged on forever. There were moments that I really did enjoy, but overall, I felt it was lacking Abbi's normal quality.  I couldn't give it lower than 3 stars because it was still an okay read, but I definitely couldn't give it any higher.  I know there is a 3rd book in the series that picks up with Woods' character but I expected a more powerful ending with this book. If you read Fallen Too Far, I suggest you read Never Too Far and finish it out...but I honestly don't believe I will buy the third book.

Love Rush! Love this book....though actions speak louder than words, Rush had some hard decisions to make. In the end he comes back to take care of what's his.

I'm really sorry to hear that some people didn't like this book. I have to say that I was completely happy with the story and how it all turned out. I understood what both Blaire and Rush were going through and why they acted the way they did with each other. People are upset that Rush didn't take care of her more or make more of an effort to support her, but he said that he was new to a relationship and had no idea how to make it work. He was in unfamilar territory. I also understood why Blaire wasn't so strong. All of the events at the end of the last book finally broke her, She had a lot of issue to deal with in the beginning, so when the rug was pulled out from under her she finally broke. I don't blame her. She didn't want him to take care of her, she wanted to stand on her own feet, she didn't want to come between Rush and his family, she didn't want to assume he would save her. That is a strong person in my eyes. I feel like this was a great sequel to a great story, and the best part is that it isn't over!

Good Read was a little disappointed with the ending...

Have to agree with a lot of comments that were left for this book.. I was disappointed as well on this sequel, I expected more out of them, not just the back and forth on their relationship.. I liked the BAD ass Blaire on the 1st book, but here she was just a WIMP.. and as for Rush, he didn't step up to the plate as I hoped, to many I'm sorry just doesn't cut it for me.. I hope there is a 3rd book, I want to know about Nan, Abe, his Mom,Grant and Woods.. especially Bethy. But then again, it might be worse then this one. So I will leave it up to my imagination that Rush finally disown his So Call Mother, and became a better man to Blaire, and Nan put her Venom to a halt, and Abe what can I say he's a coward for leaving in the 1st place.

Abbi Glines never disappoints. Her follow up to Fallen too far is amazing. Rush and Blair's story just keeps getting better. Can't wait for the next book!

So unrealistic.

Holy Moly. That is the only thing I can say when Blaire realizes her troubles just doubled. Bless her heart...the girl can't win for nothing. But however, I did love that we get a chance to see a little more of her hometown of Sumit and of Cain. I tried to like him, I did, but it just wasn't there. He was trying to come off as Mr. No One Can Love You Like Me. And he was right. No one in their right mind would love Blaire that way. He was an asshat plain and simple. Blaire deserved more than that kind of love. Poor Rush, oh my sweet poor Rush. I loved him dearly in this book. Even the times he messes up. But I know he was trying and it was hard being stuck in the middle of the woman he loves and the family he loves. His family was selfishly pulling him away from Blaire. But Blaire was being a good person about it all. She didn't want to pull him away for her selfish reasons. Even though she desperately wants to be with him she wants him to choose for himself what he wants. NEVER TOO FAR is another one of those books that is based solely on assumptions. Yep, the saying is true...everybody has one. If for one second these 2 people would have just stopped and heard one another out everything would have been great by the third chapter. But where is the fun in that? Right? Assumptions gets everyone all riled up and in a tizzy and that is exactly what I want in my book. I need that drama. Will they believe the lies...will they listen to their heart...will they leave and never come back? I.NEED.THAT. If everything is rainbows and butterflies there is no story. I need the angst that comes with the romance. And NEVER TOO FAR delivered the angst and the romance. Now off to read the bonus chapter at Abbi Glines' website (but don't read until you have read book books) and pray for a quick release to Rush and Blaire's next book. Cause this chick is dying of anticipation for it.

A bit all over the place, to much whining and then it's DONE! Once it seems like it is finally going somewhere it just cuts off THE END!
