Livie is now 18 and is starting her first year in Princeton, just like she said she would since a young age. Unlike Kacey, Livie deals with their parent's death in a different way, where she hangs up on making her father proud of her. So she aced all of her subjects in high school and got into Princeton just like her father and planning on attending med school after it. But the problem is, is it really something that she wants for herself in the future? Is it really a choice she would had made for herself?
This book is actually about Livie's journey to find herself in live and she doesn't expect to also find the arrogant but sexy, captain of the men's rowing team, Ashton Henley. He is everything that Livie thinks she doesn't want in a boyfriend but when he shows his real vulnerable side, Livie wonders if there is something more about the mysterious Ashton.
I love K.A. Tucker's writing style and I have not read anything similar to it. The characters stories she's painting for us readers is addicting and absolutely hilarious and beautiful. I loved how Livie first met Ashton, and how their attraction for each other slowly come unto the surface for us to see. It was very HOT but also very HEARTBREAKING. I'm also glad that we got to see Kacey again in this book, now when she finally overcame her issues and having a steady and happy relationship with Trent. The epilogue was especially homey with all the "family" members gathered in one house. What a sight and that smile on my face is still on even after I finished the book. FAVORITE!!!!!(less)

I don't think Nan will be his lady, because Mase and Nan have the same father, Kiro Manning. They are BLOOD-RELATED. So unless Abbi doesn't change Nan's father again, it will be incest. Not the kind of story I wish for Mase. From what I have seen of him in Harlow and Grant's book, he is the kind of big brother that everyone wants to have; loving, caring and protective. I want a girl that is worthy of him and that one is not Nan.(less)

We got to know what kind of thoughts was going around in his head during those events in "Fallen Too Far". It was good and it shed some lights on Rush's personality and questions about his motives and his feelings for Blaire. But I still think Blaire's point of view is slightly better. Just a little xD(less)

BUT, yes there is a but, Nan is a b*tch again (when isn't she?) and Grant's decision in the end just made me booed him. It was great to know more about Harlow and her story and some life changing things happened to her but I liked her as a character. Grant was just a playboy thoroughly and he was so weak when he found out Harlow's secret. I really hope he redeemed himself in the next book otherwise Harlow is better off without him. And the reminder of Jace's death just hurts so much. It's not ok for an author to kill off a character to set up a story for another one. That's just so cheap! (Sorry Abbi, but I do feel like that).

It was so cruel and unfair!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Not to confuse you guys, it's still Woods and Della's second book but that event took away the focus from them and I couldn't re-focus. It was like Abbi gutted me with that loss TT.TT All I can say is that I won't read Bethy's book after this. I started to like her when she became friends with Blaire but all changed in this book. I hate when a author introduce us to a character on name basis and letting us see his personality and glimpses of his life, and then go out there and take him from us. That hurts more than just a random people getting killed. Sorry, but I can't overcome this.
Besides that we got to see Woods grovel and declaring his love for Della, which is a sight to see. Woods has come a long way from the playboy image we saw of him in "Fallen Too Far". Even Della worked out her issues and having a bright future ahead of her with Woods. Life is not perfect, but she has Woods and that's enough. (less)

I didn't felt that strong for Woods's relationship with Della as with Rush and Blaire's but they were equally interesting to read about. A one night stand turned out to be more after Woods and Della met again during a coincidence. It felt like Tripp, Jace's cousin, was the one that unintentionally brought them together. Della has a past that she isn't comfortable to share with Woods, but she was so strong to have lived so far with her life. If those things didn't make her crazy then nothing would. When Wood's finally found out, the protectiveness that he has for her just melted my heart. He doesn't stay away from it, and just embraced everything that comes with Della. Now that is a man that wants to take care his woman. (less)

He still haven't found a balance between his love for Blaire and Nan. But I also know that Nan is a b*tch so I can understand but still. Why did I give 5 stars then? All because of Rush again. The end was just so beautiful and perfect and I cried happy tears for once. The "gifts", the song, the guitar, the love was just so beautiful. And Rush dad turns out to be a quite ok dad, except for his life style that I don't like at all. We also got introduced to a new character, Harlow, Kiro's daughter. We found out that Nan's dad is actually Kiro, the lead singer of Slacker demons and she is being her usual self once again. It's like nothing can get into that head of hers. It was very annoying that she is acting like a spoiled baby and think that the whole world own debts to her. There was so much DRAMA! So thanks to the ending that I gave it a five. I even considered giving it a two so props to the ending scene that changed everything.(less)

There were some obstacles but I know that they will overcome it. They have fallen too far for each other and that is not something that will change overnight, in a few weeks or months. And now when there is a third person to be considerate in the relationship, things just got more interesting. I really liked the side characters and knowing that Woods is going to get his own lady made me excited to keep reading this series. I know that there is third book about Rush and Blaire so their story doesn't end with "Never Too Far".
BTW, to see Rush grovel and trying to win back Blaire's heart just put a smile on my face for the rest of the book. There was some hard issues with Nan but that didn't stop them. Once again, great book by Abbi Glines. (less)

I was a mess when I finished this book. Kacey's and Trent's lives were forever changed one night, but they both found something beautiful in each other among the regret, cruelty, darkness and disaster. Trent pulled Kacey from their dark past and and taught her how to breath, to live and love again. I got so much emotions from this book and it was a really well-written piece. This is the first time I read one of K.A. Tucker's book and she is definitely an author I will watch out for. Ten tiny breaths is so much more that just ten tiny breaths. And I now know the meaning of it. AMAZING STORY! AND EQUALLY AMAZING CHARACTERS THAT JUST CAPTURES YOUR HEART!
Final message: DON'T EVER DRINK AND DRIVE! LIKE EVER! (less)

Lana was the one for Sawyer but he didn't realize it until much longer. For Lana, Sawyer has always been the one but he only had eyes for Ash. So Lana took the chance this time to make him see her, the real her. It was a little heartbreaking sometimes because Sawyer was not really over Ash and Lana had to suffer for that. So it took Lana to leave him until he knew the importance of having her by his side. We also go a short cute epilogue at the end so we got a good end to the Vincent Boys series. (less)

I guess I'm one them that didn't really get the meaning with the comic and the humor in it. (If there was one...) It was ok when I read about Suzie's story but when it switched to Jon, it was just getting to much. Also I'm not to fond of the illustrations so I just couldn't get into the story (which was kind of lame actually, sorry!). (less)

But I knew this book will feature him because of the fact that it was mentioned in the latest Lord of the Underworld book (Kane's book),that Thane had been kidnapped by a Phoenix. Thane is one the warrior in Zaharel's Army of Disgrace. Why earned that place has been revealed in former book; he was captured and tortured in a demon prison, watching his friends being raped and skinned, while nothing was done to him but being forced to watch all the things that was done. It messed Thane up quite a bit and he has to inflict pain on his bed partners or being punished in return to find release. He never questioned why he prefer this way until Elin Vale.
The story starts off with Elin being held prisoner in a Phoenix camp, where Than is currently acting like a slave to Kendra, the Phoenix that poisoned and enslaved him. Elin is actually half Phoenix, half human and she is done with her situation. She sees a opportunity in Thane and helped him escape so he could take her with him as well.
I thought Elin was a strong heroine. She was timid and vulnerable as first, but gradually we got to see her feistiness and bravery. Even Thane changed a lot. We got to witness his "downfall" and what a great sight it was, seeing his tender side and like Xerxes and Bjorn said, whipped by his woman :D The relationship was intense and you as a reader just get sucked in in their bubble. I honestly thought that Thane will stick to his painful sexual preference, but it just takes one Elin Vale to figure him all out. It was sexy and hot and the foreplay was pretty amazing!
In this book we also got to see some familiar characters from LotU, such as Lucien and his fiancee, Anya (she was hilarious, and those portraits *thumbs up) and Kaia (Strider's woman). But at some point they also mentioned Gwen and Bianca. Also about the missing Torin and Cameo. Looks like we will be seeing these Sent Ones in the LotU books as well. Can't wait!
Now now, who will be featured in the next book? Perhaps Bjorn? Or even Xerxes?(less)
