Never Too Far was a very sad read for me, because I adored the first book in the series, Fallen Too Far. This book was very predictable and very cheesy. The characters lost all of the appeal that they had in the first book, and I just could not get into it. Never Too Far takes off right where it left off in Fallen Too Far with Blaire shunning Rush and her moving back to Alabama. And low and behold….she gets pregnant. You know what? That was a stupid plot. I’m sorry, but it was. I guessed that Blaire was going to get pregnant in the first book, and I was hoping beyond hope that it just wouldn’t happen. Not only did it happen, but it didn’t come across very well in the book. I wasn’t a fan of it at. all.
I’m trying to decide my biggest problem in this book, and I can’t choose between the pregnancy, Blaire, or Rush. Honestly, I want to say that it was Rush, but it’s a close call. Where Rush was edgy and had a snarky, sarcastic quality about him in the first book, he was a complete pushover who begged and cried during every second of this book. I didn’t get excited over any scene because what was there to get excited about? The whole damn thing was just depressing…and Rush was quite frankly making me feel a bit ill inside.
On the other hand, Blaire…I couldn’t even read Blaire’s thoughts. I did a lot of skimming in this book and most of those parts involved her. Whine, whine, whine, whine, whine. That’s all she did. Pooooor me. I’m Blaire, I’m pregnant, and I don’t want to tell the one guy that I truly love. Boo hoo hoo. Poor me. That’s what the whole damn book was about. And when they finally got back together, which you knew they were going to, it was more of the same damn thing. Ohhhhh, I don’t want to hurt Blaire cause she’s pregnant. Ohhhh…I don’t know if I should get back together with Rush. I’ll say yes now and then change my mind a million and one times. COME ON! There’s not even that much drama in real damn life! The whole thing just gave me a damn headache.
The pregnancy thing was really stupid. I’m actually pretty annoyed that I already went ahead and bought the 3rd book because it’s just going to be more of this shit. Now they’re engaged and they’re getting married and going to have a baby. And, oh, yeah, Rush is a billionaire so everything is just going to be damn fine. Blaire is only 19! What kind of message is that sending to young people? FYI…you shouldn’t get married that young. There’s nothing wrong with it if that’s what you really want, and I’m not trying to offend anyone, but I just think that was a horrible message to send to young people. Like I said..headache. Not helped by the fact that I JUST finished this book, and I need to rant.
Not only those three things, but all of the other characters in the book were annoying and unrealistic. I’m sorry, but they didn’t live in a small town. Everyone knew everyone’s secrets and bowed down to help Blaire even before they knew about the pregnancy. Most of the guys in the book seemed very feminine…and just…unrealistic. All the voices eventually started blending together because everyone just sounded the same as everyone else.
Will I eventually read the 3rd book? Well, yeah, because I bought it. But I might not have read it if I hadn’t already bought it. I’m really shocked that this was the sequel, especially after how good the first book was. I’m just really disappointed /=
