There are three things Kori knows for sure about her life:
One: Her army general dad is insanely overprotective.
Two: The guy he sent to watch her, Cade, is way too good-looking.
Three: Everything she knew was a lie.
Now there are three things Kori never knew about her life:
One: There’s a device that allows her to jump dimensions.
Two: Cade’s got a lethal secret.
Three: Someone wants her dead.
Infinity haunted my dreams and interrupted my thoughts throughout the day. I couldn’t stop thinking about this book. I loved getting swept away by the action, adventure and the unknown. And when I reached that last page, I wasn’t ready to stop being in their world. Even though it ended absolutely perfect and left me so excited for where the next book is headed! But till then, I went and added every series and standalone this author has written to my to-read list. This is the first book I’ve read from her, and I can’t wait to read the rest.
Real love, she always said, knew no bounds. It wasn’t hindered by space or time. It couldn’t be weakened by death. Real love started in your heart and went straight through to infinity.
Starting out, I didn’t know much about this book other than the few words in the synopsis. And after the first two chapters, I wasn’t sure if I was going to connect to Kori Anderson. Oh, I was so wrong. Yes she did graffiti, yes she came across as abrasive, but she was so much more than that. Kori had a beautiful heart, she was selfless, she was a fighter, she could be so confident and strong and then so unsure. She was completely relatable and I loved being in her head! We learn early on that her mother passed away, and her father has to travel for work since he’s a General in the Army. When he’s away, he has people in the military watch over Kori. This time he sent Cade Granger and Noah Emeal. And because of these two, her whole world was about to change.
The small bit of distance that existed between us was banished as Cade grabbed my arms and pulled me forward. A second later, his mouth covered mine. His arms wrapped tight, holding on as though I was the only real thing in the world. Like I was the last safe place amidst a raging storm. I’d never felt anything so intense. Purely cosmic and right with the world, while at the same time, wrong.
Very, very wrong.
Cade Granger slowly captured my heart. I liked him from the moment he showed up on Kori’s doorstep. But as I watched his patience, hope and determination play out, I found myself being pulled further into him. Then when light was shone on his past, I was a goner. Cade was perfectly imperfect, and so were his interactions with Corey. It always felt as though there was so much emotion packed between them. Like I was standing there waiting for them to explode from the sexual tension, the unanswered questions, and the two of them constantly being pulled together. Cade and Kori were emotionally addicting!
I wasn’t some starry-eyed girl. We weren’t in love. This wasn’t going to be a fairy tale ending. But maybe it could have been. Under different circumstances, maybe we could have fallen in love.
There’s a ridiculous amount of things I want to talk about, but I can’t. So many of my favorite things and even moments are shrouded around some mysteries, and I can’t spoil them for you. BUT know that my heart was put through the wringer. I had so much hope for some things, and it felt like I was kicked in the gut time and again. But it couldn’t be any other way. And the more I learned, the more I ached thinking about being put in those situations. In those people’s places. It was extremely thought provoking, annndddd I want to say more yet again but I can’t.
No. This is not happening…
I clawed at his hand, desperate for air. My nails dug deep, drawing blood —I felt it, warm and slick— but it didn’t make him loosen his hold.
He grinned, as if pleased I was fighting back and, as I kicked out blindly with both legs, he laughed out loud.
I can say a few things about the ‘someone who wants her dead’. And I may be one of the few who do, because this person was a psychopath. Yet I was intrigued by what he was going to do next. My interest in this villain definitely disturbed me, yet he’s such a fascinating character whose death I constantly wished for.
There were two small hangups I had while I was flipping through the pages and the first was that some of Kori’s internal monologues went on longer than I would have liked. At certain moments I wanted to tell her shhhhhhh, even though I loved all of her thoughts. And the other was that I desperately wanted Case and Noah to have a gun. It could have been helpful, but *shrugs*. Besides those two little hiccups, I loved everything! Especially that ending! I wanted to laugh, scream and cry all at the same time. So yes, I definitely recommend this book! And I hope you fall for these characters and the story-line just as much as I did!
P.S. Can I please beg for a Novella in Cade’s voice? I would love to hear some of his thoughts as the story progressed and what he thought of certain interactions with others. That bonus POV got to me and I need more! My heart aches to hear his thoughts! Please, please please?
