Review: Forever Too Far (Rosemary Beach #3) by Abbi Glines


SUMMARY FROM GOODREADS:
Rush promised her forever... but promises can be broken.
Torn between his love for his family and his love for Blaire, Rush has to find a way to save one without losing the other. In the end one has to be more important. Letting go isn’t easy.
Blaire believed in her fairytale... but no one can live in a fantasy.
Her love for Rush and desire to have a family keep her believing that they can find a way for this to work. Until she has to make the right decision for her and the baby. Even if it breaks her heart.
Can they find the forever that they both want or has it all just gone... too far?

MY TAKE:
This was my least favorite book in the series.

In Forever Too Far, Rush's obligation to his sister once again comes between him and Blaire. Will this be the final straw that sends Blaire packing?

There were two major reasons why I didn't really enjoy this book as much as the first two. One is the whole conflict that was keeping Blaire and Rush apart. I felt that it was resolved too quickly and the amount of angst wasn't enough to offset the cheesiness of some of the lines Rush was saying and thinking. Nan is a real villain here, though. She's a self-centered, spiteful, attention-seeking child and she's completely unlikable.

My second reason is Rush's lines. Some of them were sweet and romantic, but far too many of them were too cheesy. Also, while Rush's possessiveness was still a little okay in the first two books, by the third book, it just got old. Some of the characters even called Rush out on it, but to Rush it was just natural. Hopefully he'll mellow out over the years because while Blaire may find it sweet now, eventually that kind of possessiveness can be suffocating. A little possessiveness is fine, of course, but you really don't need to be jealous of every little thing, unless you're insecure about your relationship, which is probably what Rush is feeling. He really should try and control that.

THE GOOD:

  1. Nan is a very good villain.
  2. Rush and Blaire's fathers are both sweet and adorable in their own way, despite their flaws.
  3. There's a new love match introduced, and both of them are likable.

THE BAD:

  1. Rush's lines can be cheesy. 

FAVORITE QUOTE/S:
“I never imagined anyone like you, Blaire. But every time I think about forever with you, I’m humbled that you chose me.” 
READ IT IF:

  1. You like your romance novels cheesy.
  2. You like romance novels with a happy ending.
  3. You like Rush's brother Grant.
