Book Review: Forever Too Far by Abbi Glines

Forever Too Far

Book Synopsis (from Goodreads):

Rush promised her forever… but promises can be broken.

Torn between his love for his family and his love for Blaire, Rush has to find a way to save one without losing the other. In the end one has to be more important. Letting go isn’t easy.

Blaire believed in her fairytale… but no one can live in a fantasy.

Her love for Rush and desire to have a family keep her believing that they can find a way for this to work. Until she has to make the right decision for her and the baby. Even if it breaks her heart.

Can they find the forever that they both want or has it all just gone… too far?

Book Review:

This Review may contain spoilers from the previous books in the Series, it’s recommended that you read first Fallen Too Far and Never Too Far.

As soon as the book was released I bought it and the reason is that I really liked the author’s writing style in Fallen Too Far and Never Too Far. After reading Forever Too Far I re-confirm that she really knows how to manage the characters’s emotions in a way that helps you feel connected to them and also to be quickly immersed in the story.

In this book as we follow Blair and Rush we see them both really struggling to keep things going, there are many things in their way and a lot of drama that just makes things harder for their relationship.

I enjoy reading books with multiples POV and in this one we have Blaire’s and Rush’s, which contribute to have a better perspective of her relationship and the obstacles they face, also a plus for me is that we get some chapters from the POV of other characters (I won’t give any spoilers by saying whom, but this POV’s are truly entertaining).

About some of the Characters:

Blaire: If you have read the previous books you know that she’s been through a lot and in this book there are still more things she has to face, but she keeps been brave and supportive.

Rush: Definitely an Alpha Male, in one side he loves Blaire with intensity, he’s really protective and even sweet (of course I liked this side of him), but there were also moments when I just couldn’t understand some of things he was doing (and it made me have kind of a love-hate relationship with this character).

Nan: She’s mean and spoiled, the author gives us a good “villain” in her (I couldn’t help to hate her).

My favorite character was Grant (I love him since Book 1), he’s a really nice guy who deserves a happy ending and I’m glad that this character will get his own book.

Overall, I recommend this book, it has some unexpected twists and turns and it made me experience different emotions while reading (at one time I was crying, later I was smiling, angry, then crying again), it was definitely an emotional rollercoaster all the time and I truly enjoyed it.

Book Review: On Dublin Street by Samantha Young

On Dublin Street

Book Description (from Goodreads):

Jocelyn Butler has been hiding from her past for years. But all her secrets are about to be laid bare… Four years ago, Jocelyn left her tragic past behind in the States and started over in Scotland, burying her grief, ignoring her demons, and forging ahead without attachments. Her solitary life is working well—until she moves into a new apartment on Dublin Street where she meets a man who shakes her carefully guarded world to its core. Braden Carmichael is used to getting what he wants, and he’s determined to get Jocelyn into his bed. Knowing how skittish she is about entering a relationship, Braden proposes an arrangement that will satisfy their intense attraction without any strings attached. But after an intrigued Jocelyn accepts, she realizes that Braden won’t be satisfied with just mind-blowing passion. The stubborn Scotsman is intent on truly knowing her… down to the very soul.

Book Review:

“You’re not broken” ” You’ve got a few cracks in you, but we all have some”.
Yesterday I spent most of the afternoon and a few hours during the night near to my window and reading this book, I was so immersed that I didn’t even noticed when it got dark outside, I just couldn’t put it down the book until I finished.

I love a good romance and this one has some elements I liked a lot: takes place mainly in Europe, has very well developed characters and the story is really engaging.

First let’s talk about the main characters, Jocelyn and Braden, Jocelyn is an independent woman that had her share of hard moments in life and for that reason she has some inner demons, Braden is sexy, an alpha male that always gets what he wants and right now he wants Jocelyn.
The chemistry between Jocelyn and Braden is really strong and in this book they share some really intense moments.

The book is really well written, there is passion, it has some funny scenes that made me laugh (I won’t give any spoilers so you can enjoy it) and there are also some really emotional scenes that made me cry.

The secondary characters in this book are great, my favorites were Ellie (Jocelyn’s flatmate whom was incredible sweet, charming and a great friend) and also Adam (Braden’s best friend) and I would love to read more about them.

Overall I really enjoyed this book and I would recommend it.
