3 ☆s I've got a Major Rush Crush!!~

“No. One. Comes. Before. You.”
Make her believe that you stupid ass hat! Cause sure as hell I didn't believe it.

I loved this book But at the same time I was highly disappointed.
I devoured it in 3 hours flat, from 3:30am to 6:30am. SO WORTH IT!! But I felt it getting over too quickly for me.. I wanted more, so many things were missing in this, so many loose ends were not tied and especially the ending.. I was like WTF. First only this book is tiny and then to top

So I'll go straight to the point and I'll be very honest about how I feel. Okay...I'm actually disappointed.

I mean, I've waited months for this book and I'm sad that it didn't quite live up to my expectations. Here are the reasons why.

1] Blaire always walking away/denying her feelings for Rush. Blaire being so insecure and reiterating that she and Rush will never work. Ugh.

“No. One. Comes. Before. You.”

I HEART RUSH!! and I loved this book!

Ohhhh this book was just so ADDICTIVE !!! There is something about Abbi Glines’ writing that makes me desperately just want more and more and more!!!

Its the kind of story you can just inhale in one sitting – a quick, deliciously angsty, drama-filled romance.

What made me love it was that I never once, not for one second EVER EVER EVER doubted how right Blaire and Rush were for each other, or how much they loved e

I had such high hopes for this book but ultimately felt let down. I was disappointed in Rush and Blaire's characters. They didn't have the same presence in this book that they had in the first. They felt robbed of the essence that made them unique and intriguing in the first story. They became carbon copies of the stereotypical hero and heroine whose actions and behavior were totally predictable. Unlike the first book, its sequel felt contrived

We soon find out that she is expecting and has no plans of rekindling her relationship with Cain but is at a loss as to what to do next. Blaire visits her mom and sister at the cemetery and

Dear Abbi Glines,

So after reading Never Too Far I needed to correspond and let you know that you've once again squashed my indifference. It wasn't immediately squashed in Fallen Too Far. In fact, I have yet to rate it. I really liked it, but I couldn't seem to put a star with my thoughts. Some things in that book just happened a little too fast and if I'm going to be honest here, Rush's "sweet Blaire" started to creep me out a little. I tried to hear it all sweet and sexy, but it all kept soundi

Maybe I just had my hope up way way high. Maybe that's why I ended up giving it 4 stars instead of 5. Don't get me wrong, I loved the book. I just found myself wishing that there was more to it. Considering that this was originally meant to be the conclusion to Blair and Rush's story, I don't think I would have been too happy with it. I don't feel that way now, knowing that there is going to be another book, but if this was gonna be it, I would have been pretty displeased with th

“No man has ever loved a woman as much as I love you. Nothing will ever come before you.”

Rarely does a sequel to a book you’ve loved and re-read more times than you wish to admit ever live up to its high expectations – you’re afraid the plotline would be thin, the characters taken in a direction you don’t wish them to be taken, the overall ‘feeling’ of the book not as intensely or consistently pieced together. Well, you have absolutely no reason to fear any of that when it comes to t

3/3 ~ Never Too Far bonus chapter:

I just want to start out saying that I LOVE Rush. I think he's a great character...he has all the 'goodies' and he's matured so much. I really enjoyed how he went after Blaire and how much he tempered himself and tried to respect her wishes.

But....I was really disappointed. There are two instances in the book where it seems to be out of character for him. The first one is understandable ~ maybe ~ but the second one, I just

I loved this story, but then again I love Rush and Blaire (notice I put him first). :)

Where to begin. Such an honesty and sweetness to their relationship. The innocent girl from Alabama, and the bad boy son of the rocker. To me, it shouted irony. Blaire was anything but innocent given her life experiences, and Rush wasn’t so much a bad boy, as a boy with a heart, who was craving the love he never had, but always gave away.

I loved the way Rush cared for Blaire, how protective he was, the little

I have been waiting for this sequel for almost 5 months... For those of you who have read Fallen Too Far, you know how brutal the cliffhanger was. Everything was a mess. I was heartbroken. I was so excited to read this one, too hopefully see everything come together. And I LOVED IT!

I read book 1 on a whim actually and I should have checked first if it was a series because I usually don't like reading a book if it's a series when the first book is a cliffhanger. I'm half regretting my choice because I'm still heartbroken from the ending of book 1. I hope time flies faster because right now I couldn't get "Fallen Too Far" out of my head.

OMG, it's there already. Can't wait to go get it!

Warning: spoilers abound.

Well, I’ll start off by saying that I didn’t hate the entire book, but I hated enough of it to warrant the 1-star rating I feel it deserves. I mean, it had its moments, sure, but for the most part, the bad far outweighed the good. Perhaps I came into the second book with too high hopes. Maybe my expectations were too high. Suffice it to say, I was sorely disappointed.

Never Too Far can be summed up in one word: boring.

Well, Abbi Glines has done it again. She gave me another book that I fell in love with. Sequels are often hard to write, but Rush and Blaire had more to tell. I was thrilled with the outcome and I can't wait for everyone to read this, so I can talk about it with someone! There is so much I want to say, but I don't want to ruin the story for you.

I still love all the key players in the story. By the end of Fallen Too Far, I did love Rush. It took me a while to warm up to him, but in this one, I r

I really enjoyed this book. I love Rush!!! He is so sexy!!! I can't get enough of his dirty mouth. It’s so hot!! "sighs" I love Blaire! She has been through a lot in her life but she has still managed to come out of it all as a strong independent woman. I love that about her.

Even though I really liked this book, it could have been longer and a little bit better. I felt like the author rushed through some parts in the book that could’ve been developed better. I was so disappointed

Another one I gobbled up in a few hours! This books are New Adult drama at its most Springer worthy! Rush is a giant effing tool and a total moron. If Blaire had any other options in the world, she would have left his dumb ass. But, with no parents, and only a handful of friends, she is pretty much stuck sleeping on the floor (because she can't afford a bed), walking 3.5 miles (because she can't afford a car), and having to apply for medicare to pay for her doctors visits.

Never Too Far is the much-anticipated sequel to Abbi Glines' Fallen Too Far. It is a continuation of Blair and Rush's love story, and picks up immediately after Fallen Too Far ends.

Never Too Far has been causing quite a stir! Polarizing viewpoints and social-media hullabaloos aside, the only basis on which I am able to personally give my opinion is the story itself. Admittedly, I was one of those people anxiously awaiting the continuation of Rush a
