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.
I was refreshing that Never Too Far really moved things forward. I’m glad that Blaire ended up owning her secret and spilling it to Rush. It was the sweetest scene because Rush finally started thinking about Blaire and what was best for her and the baby. What did bother me was that while Rush was telling Blaire that he was going to take care of her, he kept putting others before her. Then, there was the whole Nan situation which was only exasperated because Abe finally came clean that Nan is NOT his daughter! The scene where Abe reveals this secret to Rush made me incredibly angry. Blaire’s whole world was shattered by that revelation, and Abe continued to keep that secret for months. Nan had always blamed Blaire for her unhappiness, however, Blaire wasn’t the cause of it all; it was her mother.
I was also incredibly discouraged by Rush’s behavior in the end. I understand that Nan’s his sister and that the situation was nerve-wreaking, however, he shouldn’t have abandoned his pregnant fiancée. By refusing to talk to Blaire didn’t help Nan get better in any way. Honestly, if I was Blaire, I’d walk my pregnant self right out of that situation. I can’t imagine that Rush is ever going to change when it comes to his family, and Blaire can’t keep getting the short end of the stick. I mean, Blaire walked three miles home because Rush abandoned her when he got the call, and then he refused to call her for two weeks. He also missed the doctor’s appointment for the baby. It was completely irresponsible of Rush, and although he kept promising Blaire that he’s going to put her first, he’s doesn’t. Rush hasn’t had many people that he’s cared about, so his need to take care of them is undesirable. I just wish he would begin to see that Nan doesn’t care about him, not like he cares about her at least.
I won’t lie, the ending got me very excited, and I’m so thrilled to know the gender of the baby! However, I just feel like this book had some very unnecessary revelations just for the shock factor.
I can’t wait for Forever Too Far. Hopefully, it will redeem this middle novel and clear up this crazy situation.
