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.
Let me just get this out of the way, I loved Fallen Too Far to a ridiculous degree. You're not surprised, right?? It's no secret that I am a huge fan and supporter of Abbi Glines. So it shouldn't be a surprise that I loved this book.

But, to tell the truth, I am a little surprised by how much I love Never Too Far. I really liked Fallen Too Far. The story was pretty gritty and the family dynamic was so twisted, though, that I was left a bit frazzled. I just didn't see some of the twists coming, which is a huge credit to Glines. I really needed to sit on the story awhile to truly appreciate it.

Never Too Far was the polar opposite to Fallen Too Far. Here's why: Fallen Too Far was an introduction to these characters and Glines completely broke them down. Never Too Far was a story that built the characters back up and put the pieces of them and their lives back together. A completion to their story. It was about the truth, trust, and love. Love that can stand up to any test.

The characters in Never Too Far were exactly who I needed them to be. I know that sounds egotistical, but it's true. Life has kicked the crap out of Blair, but she determined to take control. I think I tend to forget how young she was, only nineteen, and I loved her resilience, her grace in the hardest of circumstances. And Rush...how I loved Rush Finlay. This poor boy is broken, a complete mess since Blair left him. I loved his patience with Blair, his devotion to her, and the fact that he will do whatever it takes to make things right with her. That's not to say these two don't have obstacles, and surprises along the way. But the way these two faced the challenges, and surpassed my hopeful expectations made me a happy, happy reader.

At this point, I think everyone knows Abbi Glines can write a steamy book. I will go on the record and say this is her Hottest. Book. Yet. Good lord, I thought my Kindle was going to burst into flames. Along with my face. I seriously had to set my Kindle down, cover my face, and giggle. And honestly, it's not that anything scandalous or outrageous happened. I just love the raw honesty and passion. And let's just say the fact that Rush has a tongue ring doesn't hurt.  I'm blushing and giggling again just thinking about Rush and Blair.

Fallen Too Far was everything I wanted and hoped for. It was sweet, passionate, made me do the Ugly Cry, and is my favorite Abbi Glines book yet.

Favorite Quote:

  He stood up and his steady gaze held mine. "No man has ever loved a woman as much as I love you. Nothing will ever come before you. I don't know what else I have to do to prove to you that I won't let you down again. I won't hurt you. You don't have to be alone anymore. I need you."

About the author:

Abbi Glines was born in Birmingham, Alabama. She grew up in the small town of Sumiton, Alabama where she left the summer she turned eighteen. She didn’t get far… she chased her high school sweetheart down to the coast and she’s been there every since.

Abbi now lives in the quaint southern town of Fairhope, Alabama with her three children and husband Keith (the high school sweetheart she chased after). Her life is never dull and Keith always makes sure there is another “experience” for them to explore.

Books published by Abbi include The Vincent Boys and the USA TODAY bestseller The Vincent Brothers, Breathe, Because of Low, the USA TODAY bestsellers While It Lasts and Just For Now, The Existence Trilogy that includes the USA Today Bestseller Ceaseless, andThe New York Times bestseller and Wall Street Journal bestseller Fallen Too Far. Currently she is working on Never Too Far, the sequel to Fallen too Far.
When Abbi isn’t locked away in her office typing away she is hauling her kids to and from their many social activities. You could say her second job is the Glines Kids personal chauffeur. It’s a rather illustrious job.

    Such a glowing review and such a coincidence!
    I read Fallen Too Far yesterday , in only 2 HOURS! It was so fast-paced, I loved Blaire and Rush, and all the supporting characters. I have never finished a book so fast. Anyway, I cannot wait to read Never Too Far. And since Fallen Too Far was my first Glines book, now, I know that she writes such steamy books! It made me giggle and go wide-eyed a lot, too!
    GREAT review
    Your reader,

  7. Good review. I really want to read some Abbi books cause you seem to be in love with her writing :)

  8. Awesome, awesome review!! You make me want to just drop everything to read first, Fallen Too Far, then this immediately after!

  9. I'm blushing and giggling just thinking about Rush's tongue ring. ;) I'm glad you liked this book, Andrea! I've only read The Vincent Boys by this author and I liked it well enough, so I think I'm ready to try more. Lovely review! :)

  10. Oh yes...giggling so happened during the reading of this book. There should be a warning label on it! Rush will make you swoon, giggle and fan yourself! Read at your own pleasure. Hehe

  11. I'm not so good at the breaking down of characters lol but I could read the two together (instead of waiting) and build them right back up! That quote is swoony.

  12. Son of a bitch! I had no idea this book was out already! I miss so much when I go offline for a couple of days. I need this book like yesterday!
    Her hottest book yet?! Yeah, I need this book now!

  13. Okay I give anyone permission to knock me in the head for not reading this series yet! I hear nothing but amazing things about Abbi Glines and I seriously need to remedy my bad habit. I LOVE the sound of this book, and Rush....Oh gosh....did you say tongue ring?? Your reaction to that is completely understandable, consider I feel that and I haven't even read the book yet! lol ;p I can't wait to pick this up and finally read it!

    Glad you enjoyed this, Andrea! Awesomesauce review! :D
