Forever Too Far (Too Far 3) by Abbi Glines

Reviewed by Donna ~ 4.5 Stars

There is no doubt that this was the perfect ending to a brilliant series, however I couldn’t give it the five stars I wanted to because I was so upset that the show was more or less stolen by Nan. I appreciate that she is an integral part to Rush’s life but she was really way too much in this book, to the point of complete irritation. But Rush and Blaire, now that is a totally different story.

My favourite bit of the whole book has to be Blaire’s something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue…..if you did not love Rush Finlay before then you would certainly love him after, that was the most heart warming, romantic thing I have ever read in a book and it made me cry big fat happy tears!!

Rush was perfection in this book, he doted on Blaire and the baby and to see a man react that way, you can’t help but love him….sod the testosterone, he let his feelings out, put himself out there in a big way and it was lovely to read. Blaire was brilliant in this book, she was a lot more understanding than I would have been with regards to Rush and Nan but then again everyone has their limits. At one point I thought it was all going to go tits up and Rush was nowhere to be found..obviously with Nan AGAIN!!! I am glad that she rekindled her relationship with her dad and found out some other family secrets, at least she has some family now to go with her own.

Also found new respect for Rush’s dad, the way he doted on Blaire whilst pregnant and then after with his grandchild was endearing…I could just imagine a hard living, rock star being brought to his knees by a baby.

Nan, well what can I say….despite what she may or may not believe she has been through her attitude is UNBELIEVABLE…I mean, spoilt, rich, diva, ungrateful, selfish, evil in general just a complete and utter BITCH!! I could have quite easily murdered her….seriously Abbi, please do not write a book about her, you have managed to create the worlds most loathsome female ever (no mean feat) and every time her name appears on the page I cringe…just waiting for the next feel sorry for me line to come up and there are quite a few in this book. How she dare even come between Rush and Blaire is just….arggggghhhhh GO AWAY NAN, YOU ARE NOT WELCOME…P OFF AND CRAWL UNDER THE ROCK YOU DESERVE TO BE UNDER PLEASE!!! I know it sounds over the top but I am sorry I really cannot stand her….along with millions of others that have read this series.

I won’t say too much so that you lovely readers can form your own opinions about the ending of this couples story but I loved it, it was a fab ending and just what they deserved. Yes there is a little angst but nothing too bad or drawn out…perfectly balanced.

A few fave lines from this book:-

“I love you Rush Finlay. You are going to be the best husband and father the world has ever known. One day our sons wife will be thankful that her husband will have had you for a role model. She’ll be lucky because of you, because you will have raised our son to be the man that you are. He’ll love her completely because he’ll know how.”

“I’m not ever letting your sexy ass get too far away from me again”

“How far is too far?” I asked

“It’s all too far. I want you right here beside me………forever!”


I am still swooning over the old, new, borrowed and blue, that will stay with me for a long time. Fab read, you’ll all love it if you are a fan of this series.
