Too Far Series
Fallen Too Far #1
Never Too Far #2
Twisted Perfection #3
Untitled #4 *Grant's Story
Untitled #5 *OMG just saw this WILL BE another Rush and Blaire story! WOOT!
When I finished the first book in this series, Fallen Too Far, I quickly picked this next book, in the series and continued on with Rush and Blaire's story, and was so NOT disappointed! Miss Glines
writes compelling, romantic, stories, infused with many realistic situations. You will fall for her characters and stories. I can't wait to dive into her other books and continue on with this series.
The last book, Fallen Too Far, left me sad, so sad I was bawling for Rush and Blaire and really thought that was The End for those two. When I picked up this book, I was expecting something that would tilt their world and yes, this next book in the series did just that!
Rush lied to Blaire, LIED! No, he didn't cheat, he did something worse in Blaire's eyes. She's left reeling, and confused, and hurt. So she does what comes naturally to her. She heads back home, to her hometown, and reconnects with a past love, who offers to help her. Rush in the meantime has just felt his heart being ripped out of him. He's just as hurt, confused, and reeling. He in turn goes after his family, the ones who have turned Blaire's life apart for what seems like a very long time. Rush pushes his Mother away, and his sister who he has protected since as far as he can remember. He's basically had enough, and is distraught at losing Blaire. He wants her back and will do anything to win her love back. He's completely in love with her, and it's nice to see him go through the angst of losing her, because as your reading, you really want these two back together, and you can see they both struggle at the loss of each other.
One thing is for sure though is Blaire's strength. She always had a strong side to her. She's been through so much already in her past, and now even though she is alone she finds the strength to lean on her friends, and try to make sense at the next ground breaking incident in her life, because one things for sure after what she discovers about herself, nothing will ever be the same, and now she must rise up, and learn to take care of herself even more so, now. Blaire eventually returns back to the town where Rush lives, as she tries and reestablish her life, without Rush, but like I said above, Rush is fighting for her, and he makes it harder and harder for Blaire to resist him. Once he finds out the groundbreaking news, Blaire has been hiding from him, he pulls out all the stops and truly shows his love for her.
Once again though, Rush's family seem to get in the way, and Rush feels a responsibility to them, especially when a emergency occurs and he is left with a ton of guilt. Unfourtnetly for Blair, he needs to be their for his family, and although she is left alone, again, and she feels left out, she still remains strong and is understanding to Rush's plight. As we get closer to the end we learn more secrets and they all come out, but this time the secrets are from Blaire's estranged father, as he finally explains why he made the decisions he's made and had to leave Blair and her mom behind, even though I felt he was a coward!
The story of Rush and Blaire from this book and book #1 was one that swept me away. I loved it, and am slightly sad that their story won't continue(JUST FOUND OUT! Book #5 will continue their story!), but I'm sure Abbie will incorporate them in the next book Twisted Perfection. Twisted will be about a Woods, a character in both books. Even though I failed to mention him in this review. He does play a important part in both Blaire's and his friend, Rush's life. He took care of Blair when Rush couldn't. Although, at first I thought he would be their third wheel or triangle in this series, I'm glad to say he wasn't and am looking forward to reading his story.
This book is new adult and has some hot and steamy scenes, so it's a definite 18 and over. Although, not as steamy and heart-pounding as the first one, it is a MUST READ, as you need to know if Blaire and Rush will ever get back together or if they just become friends.
"Listen to me, Blaire. If you try to go anywhere I will chase you down. I will become your shadow. I won't let you out of my sight because I can't live without you. I made so many damn mistakes with you I don't even want to try and count them but I'm going to start making things right from here on out.
“She may have had enough time to deal with things. What if she does come back? What will you do?" Grant asked me.
What would I do?
“She's amazing. No... she's perfect. Everything about her is fucking perfect," I said aloud. "I don't just love her, she owns me. Completely. I'd do anything for her.”
“No. One. Comes. Before. You.”
