My Swoon for this week comes from:

Forever Too Far
(Too Far #3)

Abbi Glines

Warning: This book is recommended for 18+ readers due to its adult content.

First - The Blurb:

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?

Second - The Swoon:

Blaire's eyes filled up with tears and she grabbed my face and kissed me. Her soft lips opened and her tongue slid into my mouth hungrily. Right here in front of everyone. This wasn't like her but I would take it. I started to kiss her back just as passionately when she pulled back enough so that she could look at me. Her hands still held my face. "I love you Rush Finlay. You are going to be the best husband and father the world has ever known. One day our son's 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." She choked on a sob and pressed her lips to mine again and I cradled her in my arms as I enjoyed having her so determined to reassure me that I was a good man. Nothing in life was as precious as this women. It never would be. I'd found my happiness.

Forever Too Far is the third installment of Blaire and Rush's story. It was a sweet read with tonnes of swoon worthy moments. Both characters did some growing up and Rush demonstrated a very sensitive and romantic side to himself. A beautiful ending to a beautiful story.

My rating: 5 out of 5
