First of all, I just want to wish you all a great week, may you be able to read a lot of books!! 🙂
My second review will be of Forever Too Far by Abbi Glines. Let me just say, if you haven’t read the Too Far Series, you need to get to them ASAP! They are AMAZING! For those of you who haven’t read them, the order of the books is: Fallen Too Far, Never Too Far and Forever Too Far…BUT, before you read the last one you need to read Twisted Perfection (it’s another series about one of the characters that appear in the other books and it’s just as amazing)!!!
Let’s get to it…
Rating: 5 stars
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?
This book was the perfect ending for Rush and Blaire’s story.
In the first book we got to know Blaire and Rush. Rush was a player and Blaire was sweet as they come…she had to spend years taking care of her dying mother, so she didn’t have the time (or money) to go out and be a teenager, to have dates, girlfriends and just have fun…Enters Rush Finlay, the son of a rock-star, with his rich (also players) friends, demanding half-sister and jaded ways. Well obviously they felt in love, and after a little cliffhanger we jump to the second book, where Rush has to prove his love for Blaire and that he is able to be there for her and their unborn child. After all the drama with Nan (Rush’s half sister), we discover that she isn’t Blaire’s sister after all and that Blaire’s mother actually took care of Rush when he was little and we get such a bitterweet taste…When Rush discovers Blair wasn’t eating any proper food in his house (book 1) and that she didn’t have a bed to sleep (book 2) I felt just a bit more in love with him and his caveman ways…
In this book, we are able to see more of Rush’s sweet side. Abbi Glines did her work and character developing perfectly in this three books, introducing us to him, letting us see who he was and who he could be to end with who he became because of Blaire!
Blaire…she’s not as insecure as she used to be (I’m not saying she didn’t have the right to be, considering all she went through, she was entitled to it) and she grew up a lot, actually being able to forgive her father. Her love for Rush is a no-demanding love, she only wants his happiness and to be happy with him! I actually cried in a scene of this book when she was all alone and in pain (no spoilers!! LOL). All she wants is to come first (with her baby) to Rush! She’s not possessive of Rush like Nan is, and it’s not shelfish of her to want her fiancé to lover her and their baby first. After all, Nan needs to put her shit together!
It was good to see Rush finally seing that Nan can’t always come first, and that it actually spoils her more…she’s seeking for attention, but she doesn’t realize that being a bitch to much everyone won’t get her anywhere. I thought she would atone herself, but it seems it’s a impossible thing for Nan to do! I’m sorry to say this, I’m being bad, but Nan needs to suffer more! Her problems are so little compared to the ones Blaire had to deal with…Blair lost her twin, her mother, her father (for sometime at least) and she’s still a good, compassionate person and she had all the reasons to be a bitch!
I also loved to see more of the other characters. Bethy is hilarious as ever and I loved Della (from Twisted Perfection) and Woods…Not to mention Grant. I see a new story coming for him and Harlow, maybe?! Harlow is a sweetie, and I think she’ll make Nan even more furious, but until she sees that she’s alone in the world she won’t be able to start changing (for me she could actually die – I’m evil today LOL)!
Rush’s letters to Blaire are so, so sweet, you’ll love them, there’s no doubt! Specially the satin one (you’ll understand).
With this book we end our journey through Rush and Blaire’s love and it was a great, amazing story. It had sad moments, a lot of loss, funny moments and so much love! I dare someone to read this and not fall in love with Rush Finlay!! He needed someone to make him be the person he always wanted to be, someone different from his parents, someone compassionate, lovable, forgiving and still hot-as-hell-Rush-Finlay style! And hot he is! Since he first apperared he was hot (his first sex scene with Blair in his car is steamy), but now he’s hot and sweet! A former bad-boy with a heart some would say (I never considered him to be a bad boy)…
This series are seriously addictive and I can’t believe I won’t have my Rush fix anymore (I believe he and Blaire will apperar in other books, but it’s not the same thing as a whole book of Rush’s hotness)!!! when I read Twisted Perfection and saw it was not Rush’s story and it was Wood’s I didn’t think I would like it as much as I did…One thing is for sure, Abbi Glines can me us love (and lust) anyone from this series!!!
