Quick *slight* spoiler note: If you haven’t read Fallen Too Far, skip this teaser and
read  that awesome, angsty, delicious guilty pleasure ASAP!! Here is my review to help convince you. Just look at how so MANY of us loved it!! ——–>

I just want to say…. thank you!! THANK YOU!! Abbi Glines for this AH-MAAAAZING “NEVER TOO FAR” teaser. You are so feeding our Rush-crush with this, and the way Fallen Too Far ended… this helps sooth my broken heart, even if just a little. (expected release date: March 2013).

Little notes about the series as per Abbi’s website:

  • “Rush and Blaire will only have the two books. But other characters from the series will get stories.”
  • “Woods from the TOO FAR series is getting a story. His story is playing out in my head so quickly and loudly I can’t shut it up. I have to write that one after Never Too Far. I can’t hold it off. It wants out. I will be releasing the description and cover the week of Valentine’s Day.”

Okay… now on to the PERFECT teaser!

Never Too Far exclusive teaser

I soaked in the sight of her. She was thinner and I didn’t like it. Was she not eating? Had she been sick?

“Hello, Rush,” she said breaking the silence. The sound of her voice almost sent me to my knees. God I’d missed her voice.

“Blaire,” I managed to say terrified that I would scare her away just by speaking.

She reached up and wrapped a strand of her hair around her finger and tugged on it. She was nervous. I didn’t like that I was making her nervous. But what could I do to make this easier? “Can we talk?” she asked softly.

“Yeah,” I stepped back to let her in. “Come in.”

She paused and glanced past me toward the inside of the house. The fear and pain flashing in her eyes had me silently cursing myself. She’d been hurt here. Her world had been destroyed in my house. Dammit. I didn’t want her to feel this way about my house. Not when there were good memories here too.

“Are you alone?” she asked. Her eyes shifted back to me.

She didn’t want to see my mom or her dad. I got it now. It wasn’t the house. “I forced them to leave the day you left,” I replied watching her carefully.

Her eyes went wide. Why did this surprise her? Didn’t she get it? She came first. I’d told her as much in that hotel room. “Oh. I didn’t know…” she trailed off. We both knew she didn’t know because she’d cut me from her life.

“It’s just me. Except for Grant’s occasional visits it’s always just me.” She needed to know I hadn’t moved on. I wasn’t moving on.

Blaire walked into the house and I clenched my hands into fists as her familiar sweet scent followed her. So many nights I’d spent dreaming of this- Blaire walking back into my life. My world.

“Can I get you something to drink?” I asked thinking how I really wanted to beg her to talk to me. To stay with me. To forgive me.
Blaire shook her head and turned around to look at me. “No. I’m good. I… I just… I was in town and well,” she scrunched her nose and I fought the urge to reach up and touch her face. “Did you hit Cain?”

Cain. Sh%t she knew about Cain. Was she here to talk about Cain? “He asked things he shouldn’t have. Said things he shouldn’t have,” I replied through my teeth.

Blaire sighed. “I can only imagine,” she mumbled and shook her head. “I’m sorry he came here. He doesn’t think things through. He just acts on impulse.” She wasn’t defending him She was apologizing for him. That wasn’t her job. The stupid f&cker wasn’t her responsibility nor were his actions her fault.

“Don’t apologize for him, Blaire. It makes me want to hunt his ass down,” I growled unable to control my reaction.

“It’s my fault he was here, Rush. That’s why I’m apologizing. I upset him and he assumed it was all because of you so he came running here before talking things out with me.”

Talking things out with her? What the f&ck did Cain need to talk out with her?

It was awesome wasn’t it? Check out another teaser for this upcoming release right on Abbi Gline’s webpage!
