Review of Never to Far by Abbi Glines


The story that started in the New York Times Bestseller Fallen Too Far continues...

Rush withheld a secret that had destroyed her world.

Her entire life had all been a lie.

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.

My Review

I’ve been waiting for this book since I finished Fallen too Far. The story starts weeks after the first book. Since I was looking forward to the continuing story, this was a quick read for me. Abbi’s writing style kept me completely engaged and I did not want to put this book down. With all the different emotions running through me, I don’t know how I was able to finish. This book had me happy, sad, frustrated, and had my heart beating rapidly during some parts.

Blair’s mother and sister were dead, her father left her for another family, her best friend left her when she needed him most, and the man she loved kept a life ruining secret from her. Blair had no one; she was all alone. Back in her hometown, she didn’t know what to do and had nowhere to go. Her best friend tries to help her and she lets him, however she forgives but never forgets.  

Rush has always been a ladies man and has never been capable of loving anyone that is not family. Miserable that she left him, he doesn’t know what to do with himself or how to handle this situation. Yes, he loves her and wants her back, but he also wants to respect her wishes and leave her alone. So, he just camps out at home waiting for a sign on what to do next. 

In this book, Blair becomes more mature and a much stronger person. Having to deal with her problems alone does that to people. A situation causes Blair to move back to Rosemary. She moves in with her best friend Bethy, gets her old job back, and starts living life again. The truth brings Rush and Blair together again and their hot, passionate romance picks up where it last ended.

I’ve noticed that these two have changed in this book; matured more and they’re growing more as a couple. But there are something’s that cannot be changed; people resort to their old ways. When Rush chooses family over Blair again, will that completely ruin their future together? When another secret comes out, can everyone move past it? Will he finally do the right thing?

It takes a lot of strength to deal with the cards that Blair has been dealt; however; that’s real life. Secrets can ruin the lives of everyone involved, including the secret keeper. We must evaluate the situation to see if the secret is even worth keeping. Maybe telling the truth is worth more than hiding the truth. Unfortunately growing up in life sometimes means that we must learn from our mistakes, but how many of the same mistakes do we need to make before we move on? ~~Jenn
