Never Too Far by Abbi Glines

Never Too Far (Too Far, #2; Rosemary Beach, #2)

Blurb: 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.

My Thoughts: When I first read this book I found it sad that the main character was alone at the time in her life that she really needed someone to be there. But of course there’s more to the story. When she first thinks she is alone she is in her hometown and she didn’t want her best friend to know her secret. She goes back to Rosemary Beach and she has all her friends there taking care of her which really touched my heart. Not many people try to help each other anymore so its nice to at least have a story where they do. That’s the main reason I loved this book.

Fallen Too Far by Abbi Glines

Blurb To want what you’re not supposed to have…She is only nineteen.She is his new stepfather’s daughter.She is still naïve and innocent due to spending the last three years taking care of her sick mother.

But for twenty-four year old Rush Finlay, she is the only thing that has ever been off limits. His famous father’s guilt money, his mother’s desperation to win his love, and his charm are the three reasons he has never been told no.

Blaire Wynn left her small farmhouse in Alabama, after her mother passed away, to move in with her father and his new wife in their sprawling beach house along the Florida gulf coast. She isn’t prepared for the lifestyle change and she knows she’ll never fit into this world. Then there is her sexy stepbrother who her father leaves her with for the summer while he runs off to Paris with his wife. Rush is as spoiled as he is gorgeous. He is also getting under her skin. She knows he is anything but good for her and that he’ll never be faithful to anyone. He is jaded and has secrets Blaire knows she may never uncover but even knowing all of that…

Blaire just may have fallen too far.

Ck's Thoughts This is the second time I’ve read this book so these are not my first thoughts on the book. I read this book before we started our blog and I had to re-read it before I wrote a review on it and also the newest book of the series came out so I wanted to have a marathon with this series. I liked this book because it wasn’t like most love storied I have read. At first Rush seems really mean when Blaire shows up needing a place to stay which if this is your first time reading this book you have to wonder why he would be so mean. At first you would think it’s because she was an unwanted step sister but later on in the book you find out the real reasons. I kind of thought it was funny that she kept walking in on him having sex with women everywhere in the open and she couldn’t help but stare and run away after a few minutes. I think the ending of this book is really sad and I also think Blaire turned into a, I don’t know a better way to put this, bitch. She could have at least listened to his side of the story of why he didn’t tell her before running away but running away I think is kind of her thing.

Walking Disaster by Jamie McGuire

Walking Disaster (Beautiful, #2)

Blurb: Finally, the highly anticipated follow-up to the New York Times bestseller Beautiful Disaster. Can you love someone too much?
Travis Maddox learned two things from his mother before she died: Love hard. Fight harder.

In Walking Disaster, the life of Travis is full of fast women, underground gambling, and violence. But just when he thinks he is invincible, Abby Abernathy brings him to his knees.

Every story has two sides. In Beautiful Disaster, Abby had her say. Now it’s time to see the story through Travis’s eyes.

CKI was really excited to start reading this book. Usually when I read a book about people falling in love and it’s just in the girls point of view I get kind of mad. I want to know what I guy is thinking at certain points. When I read this book I thought it was great. Even though most of it was a repeat from Beautiful Disasters there was still some new things. I also liked how the author didn’t end the book at the same part. She went a little further into their lives and I really enjoyed seeing how their live was turning out. I can’t wait until she writes about Travis’ brothers.

Untitled-1 I was very excited when CK told me this novel was completely in Travis’ point of view. I really liked Travis and I wanted to know what he really felt like through the story. However, a times I got bored or nervous because I already knew what the main events were. The epilogue was awesome because it went farther than the first book. Honestly, I don’t think this needed to be a whole book.

Chain Reaction by Simone Elkeles

Chain Reaction (Perfect Chemistry, #3)

Blurb: Like his brothers, Luis Fuentes is a risk taker; whether he’s scaling the Rocky Mountains or dreaming of a future as an astronaut, Luis is always looking for the next thrill.

Nikki Cruz lives her life by certain rules ― don’t trust a boy who says “I love you”, boys lie to get their own way and never date a boy from the south side of Fairfield. Then she meets Luis at his brother Alex’s wedding and suddenly she’s tempted to break all her rules.

Getting Nikki to give him a chance is Luis’s biggest challenge, until he finds himself targeted by the head of the gang that nearly destroyed his brothers’ lives. Will Luis’s feelings for Nikki be enough to stop him from entering a dark and violent world that could prove to be the ultimate risk?

What I Think: This was a good book. I really liked this series even though when I read the fist book I didn’t think I would finish the series because I loved Alex and Brittany as the main characters. But I had too many series going on and I needed to finish them so I got the second book from my library and liked it. Since there was only one book left in the series to read I said the heck with it and read it. I’m glad that I decided to finish this series. I liked seeing the brothers grow up and fall in love even with all the problems in between. I also liked how they brought back the other characters so you could see what they were up to. I can’t wait to be able to buy this series in hardback so I can have them for when I want to read something good.
