Never Too Far by Abbi Glines ~ Audiobook Review & Teaser Tuesday (@AbbiGlines, @SimonSchusterAU)

Our relationship had been short. Intense and brief. I wondered what it would have felt like to curl up in Rush's arms anytime I wanted. To know I was safe and that he loved me. We'd never had that chance.

Just when Blaire allowed herself to fall for her stepbrother, Rush, he revealed a life-altering secret so devastating that she couldn't forgive him. Unable to face him again, Blaire leaves the promise of true love behind in Rosemary Beach and returns to the comforts of her small town in Alabama, wanting nothing more than to put the summer behind her.

But unexpected news complicates Blair's plans, and she's forced to trust the one man she shouldn't. Trapped between Rush's fierce desire to win her back and her own sense of self-preservation, Blaire doesn't know if she's doing the right thing . . . or if she's making the biggest mistake of her life.

After listening to Fallen Too Far, I had to dive into the next book immediately, because that ending... argh! I love both Blaire and Rush, but the couldn't seem to get things right. However, everything was about to change in Never Too Far.

When Blaire returned to Sumit, she was living with Cain's Granny Q and she was struggling to find her feet again. A run in with Cain and a visit from a new friend sent Blaire back to Rosemary Beach, if only for a short while. Blaire's life becomes complicated and she realises she has friends and support in Rosemary Beach and she can't run away again.

Both Blaire and Rush needed to step up throughout Never Too Far. They belong together, but struggle to get their lives to line up. There are constant hurdles for them to over come and they really need to learn to trust one another. At times I wished Blaire wouldn't hold back and fight for what she wanted. She was a sweet girl and deserved to be loved. Rush, well he seemed to be there but he kept pushing Blaire away when she wanted to be there for him and he probably needed it most. I wish that he would follow through with what he says, and keep Blaire as his number one priority.

There were a lot of twists throughout the story which had my jaw hitting the floor! Just when I thought I had their stories straight, confessions and truths turned everything upside down once again. I love how Abbi Glines always keeps me in the dark about where the story is heading and I have no idea until the twist hits me! I've continued to enjoyed the narration by Jennifer Bronstein as well. Her easy story telling and switching between characters has kept me engrossed in the story. I look forward to finishing Rush & Blaire's story with Forever Too Far.

Here are a couple of lines from the book, Rush showing how much he wants Blaire in his life and what she means to him.

“I’m driving you because I’m a desperate man who will take whatever the hell he can get when it comes to you.”

“And as for making my life difficult. You, Blaire Wynn, make my life complete.”

She believes in ghosts and has a habit of asking people if their house is haunted before she goes in it. She drinks afternoon tea because she wants to be British but alas she was born in Alabama. When asked how many books she has written she has to stop and count on her fingers. When she’s not locked away writing, she is reading, shopping (major shoe and purse addiction), sneaking off to the movies alone, and listening to the drama in her teenagers lives while making mental notes on the good stuff to use later. Don’t judge.
