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


SUMMARY FROM GOODREADS:
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.

MY TAKE:
I enjoyed the first book in the series, so I thought I'd give this one a try as well.

In Never Too Far, Blaire goes back home after deciding that she can't stay in a relationship with Rush. However, things get complicated quickly and avoiding Rush forever may not be an option after all.

This book alternates between Rush and Blaire's points-of-view so we can see what they see, think and feel. This is a good idea as it allows for more range in the storytelling.

I enjoyed Blaire's point-of-view because she has some pretty funny lines. Her pregnancy experience was slightly different from mine, though, so there were a few things that I couldn't relate to. Rush was just okay for me, as he got pretty emo on occasion, which sometimes worked and sometimes didn't.

Overall, I thought the story was intriguing and while the story was dramatic, maybe overly dramatic for some, I personally thought that it had just the right amount of angst. My only concern is the level of Rush's possessiveness which was just bordering on too much sometimes. It's a little bit Edward Cullen-ish, and honestly, there were a couple of moments where I got a little concerned.

THE GOOD:

  1. Blaire has some funny lines.
  2. It's angsty, but the good kind.
  3. You get to read from Rush's point-of-view.

THE BAD:

  1. It can get a little cheesy sometimes. 

FAVORITE QUOTE/S:
“I know you love her. I’ve never seen you act this crazed in your life. I get that. But Nan hates her. If you love Blaire then protect her from the venom that is dripping from your sister’s fangs. Or I will.”  
READ IT IF:

  1. You like angsty New Adult books.
  2. You are looking for a book with plenty of drama.
  3. You enjoyed the first book in the series.
