Book 3 in the Rosemary Beach Too Far series and Rush and Blaire continue with all the family angst that started in the previous books. Loved their final story. What an awesome couple. Looking forward to more Rosemary Beach, there are certainly some very interesting characters to continue the saga.
"Full of Romance, Drama and yes few Surprises too."
This book gave us our duel narrative again from both Rush and Blaire. Forever Too Far follows on from the events of Never Too Far, and picks up with Rush and Blaire trying to work through their past issues and move on. (Trying to write this without spoilers is difficult).
Of course, life is just not that easy for them because there are still some issues lurking in the way such as Rush’s family demanding his attention to deal with their problems. For instance, Rush is once again put in the difficult position of having to take care of his sister and at the same time taking care of Blaire during her pregnancy, things start to get frustrating & complicated. Especially with Nan causing troubles for everyone. Rush is torn between loyalty for his family and his responsibilities for his beloved Blaire and their child.
While I enjoyed this book and wanted to give it more stars, the fact is, Nan–at least for me–made that rating impossible. Lets face it, all the Nan drama was simply annoying and nothing more than foolishness and filler. Nan story's line kind of ruined this book for me. Her character became a distraction from rather than an assets to the story. Nevertheless, I still LOVED Rush & Blaire and their romance in this book. I gave the story 4 stars because of Rush!! I have to say that this book wasn't as good as the first two but it was still cute..and has a lot of extremely HOT sex! And as for Rush, I'd give him 10 shiny stars for his swoon-worthy and romantic wedding gifts. Except for the "Nan" parts, I enjoyed receiving a satisfying dose of my favorite cast of characters from the previous books. I especially loved the author teasing us with Grant and Harlow's points of view, which sets the stage, I hope, for the next book. On a side note, I would recommend listening to Twisted Perfection by Abbi Glines. It will help fill in the blanks with back stories for some of the secondary characters in this book. Overall, Forever Too Far was a perfect ending to Rush and Blaire. Their loose ends were tied up, they got their HEA and, even though there was no epilogue it was still perfect.
Loved the book itself and the performance. It actually felt like she was into the book when she reads it.
It's day 3 and I can't get enough of this series!!! I really love that a male narrator has joined in to take over the part of Rush! As much as the female narrator has done her job it was a bit of a stretch. Rush needed a male.
The story itself got evermore sweet and angsty. Rush and Blair grow up as they try to take on the outside life issues and try to prepare for life as a family. I have to say I love how all the characters are going and always in their life waiting for their spot in the sun. Can't wait to get to their stories. It's a fantastic series so far and I will miss Blair and Rush as their story is now over with a HEA but I hope since the series goes on we will see them through the eyes of others characters as they try to get their HEA.
Finally..... Rush finally manages to get it right and when he does, he does it with all the class of a 5-star resort. Loved where things went in this installment. Rush and Blaire have one of those loves that is meant to last forever, despite all the odds having been against them. Loved seeing these to finally get their very own happily ever after and all that took place on their journey to get there.
"All about introducing new characters"
This book is the denouement to Rush's and Blair's story; everything is tidied up and finished as far as they're concerned. The rest is all about introducing new characters and love interests for existing characters which are likely to flow into separate books.
"LOVED RUSH & BLAIR'S STORY! JUST AMAZING!"
This trilogy has been such a sumptuous treat! Seeing the growth between Rush and Blair has been delightful. For Abbi Glines, she has gotten it right in so many ways. First of all, thank you for the awesome book covers, and for choosing great narrators. I loved Jennifer Bronstein's performance. Rip Griffin did good, as well.
This book had so many amazing moments that I'm kind of at a loss of how to describe Rush and Blair's finale. Let's start off with beautiful, romantic, sexy, and all consuming. Rush has come a long way from "Fallen Too Far" (book 1). His love for Blair is my favorite kind--it's binding, insatiable, necessary, can't-live-without, and a desperate kind of love. Of course, Blair feels the same for Rush.
I enjoyed the extra layer of family relationships in this book. We get to experience Dean Finlay, as the rockstar dad and soon-to-be grandfather which was just endearing and fun. Blair's father, Abe, also has more surprises….whoa!--Talk about some twists! And, Rush and Blair still have to deal with his wicked-witch of a sister Nan. You know, I don't think I will ever warm up to her. I really hope that Glines does not create a book for her. She's just evil and a "mean girl" personified and she doesn't deserve a happy ending (that's my inner mean girl talking). We get a glimpse into the next books in this series with Woods and the lovely Della, as well as Grant and Harlow. I can't say that I'm excited about Grant's book since Nan will be ever present in it. What was the man thinking????? Seriously????
Regarding the love relationship between Rush and Blair, in previous books, Rush always seems to be focused on the bigger picture with Blair, while forgetting or overlooking the small things. But, in this book we are showered with the beautiful, small and meaningful gestures Rush extends to Blair, the love of his life. I loved the gifts he sent to her with different messengers before their wedding ceremony. And, the pink silk fabric from a special person from time past was just amazing. I can't say too many details, if not I'd give away a lot of great treats in this book. Lastly, I loved the home life moments we are given with Rush, Blair and baby Nate in the beach house. This book was just lovely and a great tribute to the love between Rush and Blair.
NOW ON TO WOODS BOOK!!! WOOT-WOOT!!!
"Redeemed the Series"
I've had mixed feelings about this series the whole way through, but, still I've enjoyed it. I recommend this to those that like YA with a little extra 'steam' in the romance department. Forever Too Far is the final chapter in the Rush & Blair saga. With this third installment I'm accustomed to Blair's semi-sad, sappy sweet southern voice, and the addition of a male narrator was very welcome. In terms of content, I really loved the direction of the story, especially the last few chapters--I was melting *SIGH*
The supporting characters have also snagged my interest, so although I probably wouldn't spend a credit on these books, I'm definitely buying some of the other books from Glines--you can't beat a sweet romance, and she does it well.
"Oh does it have to end??"
I really hope that Abbi Glines will continue to show us Rush & Blaire in future books about others. There are definite lead ins for other stores with other characters, though if Nan gets a book, I might burn it just for spite. So much in this story. Man does Rush screw up over and over but finally he gets it. He is growing too and I love it. Blaire is one hell of a woman! Total enjoyment. Often times I find that in the third book of a series on the same couple it gets boring or a bit too "all things are great," not here, this book is a must! We don't see far into the future which I do sometimes enjoy and there are a few issues that haven't been totally resolved (mostly Nan) so I can see more books coming our way. I love Woods, what a great character, we saw a lot more depth here and I'm excited about that. There are a lot of great people in this book and a lot of excellent parts, some heart wrenching and some so happy I felt like I was on a roller coaster sometimes. The books really aren't realistic in the way most of us live, not like the rich and famous, but there is so much realistic relationship stuff it really feels "normal" and for that I must say any reservations I had from negative reviews before the first are totally gone. This series will be a re-read over and over :)
"Great Ending to a Great Story"
I love the Rush and Blair story, it is my favorite of Abbi Glines. I was glad to see things get resolved with Rush and his crazy family, and more importantly, with Blair and her father. Blair and Rush's love is easy to lost in. Can't wait for the series to continue!
