*Disclaimer: This review contains spoilers*
Forever Too Far was an amazing ending to this trilogy. I loved Rush at the beginning of this book; he was so overprotective of Blaire and seemed to really be taking the lessons he learned in Never Too Far to heart. However, as the book and Blaire’s pregnancy progressed, Rush seemed to forget his promise that he would always put her and the baby first. I am so sick of Nan. In the first scene she appeared, it reminded me of why the first half of the book read so wonderful; it was because Nan wasn’t there shrieking, crying, and throwing a pity party. I’m very glad this is the final installment because I’m not sure I could continue reading about her. (I do have a sneaking suspicion that she’ll be back in Grant’s series, but hopefully we’ll see a different side to her.)
Throughout the second half of this novel, I wanted to strangle Rush. His sister began manipulating him all over again, and even though this time he was well aware of her manipulations, he still fell for them! How could he even think that Blaire was capable of being cruel and mean? This is sweet, kind, and innocent Blaire who only thinks of other people, but the minute Nan is in the picture, Rush seems to forget all that. I cheered for Blaire when she finally left Rush in L.A.. Blaire deserves better than what Rush has given her. I still believe that Rush is one of the most sympathetic male leads because his loyalty is so admirable, but I just wish his loyalty was towards someone who reciprocated that protective streak. By the end of the novel, Rush had redeemed himself, and he was able to show that he could put his family behind him in a sustainable, month after month scenario. It really impressed me because I wasn’t sure that Rush could leave his mother and sister to fend for themselves, but I’m glad he did.
The writing did leave a little bit to be desired. Like the previous novel, there were revelations just for the sake of drama. Blaire has a brother! It’s just beginning to feel like a soap opera. That Being said, Abbi Glines’ writing is so brilliant that sometimes it’s easy to ignore. I’ve been a fan of Abbi Glines since Breathe, but I feel that her novels are becoming more formulaic. I will keep reading Abbi Glines because I do think that she’s an incredible author, and I do give this book 5 stars, but I hope that the pots in her upcoming novels will mix things up.
Must Read! Highly Recommended!
