Infinity + One (Amy Harmon)

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000039_00002]

When two unlikely allies become two unwitting outlaws, will two unforgettable lovers defy unbeatable odds?

Bonnie Rae Shelby is a superstar. She’s rich. She’s beautiful. She’s impossibly famous. And Bonnie Rae Shelby wants to die.

Finn Clyde is a nobody. He’s broken. He’s brilliant. He’s impossibly cynical. And all he wants is a chance at life.

One girl. One boy. An act of compassion. A bizarre set of circumstances. And a choice – turn your head and walk away, or reach out your hand and risk it all?

With that choice, the clock starts ticking on a man with a past and a girl who can’t face the future, counting down the seconds in an adventure riddled with heartbreak and humor, misunderstanding and revelation. With the world against them, two very different people take a journey that will not only change their lives, but may cost them their lives as well.

Infinity + One is a tale of shooting stars and fame and fortune, of gilded cages and iron bars, of finding a friend behind a stranger’s face, and discovering love in the oddest of places.

This is super strange for me because I have never rated an Amy Harmon book less than 3 stars. I’m not sure I know how to do this…

First, I want to start with the good. In true Amy fashion, Infinity + One contained exceptional writing. Prose, poetry, humor. It was truly amazing writing which I don’t expect anything less from Amy. No matter what sort of book she writes.


But here’s the thing, the story was slow. And for as slow as the story was, Finn and Bonnie fell in love in a faster amount of time. So, insta-love. Which means I in know way believed in their “love”. That’s the thing with romance stories. You have to make the reader fall in love with the characters that you are making fall in love with each other. But, during a majority of the book I just felt lost and dis-connected. Like I was walking in circles.

Stories are hard for a reader when they can’t connect to a character. They struggle. They get bored. They lose interest. And while I had no connection (or even a want to) to Bonnie I did connect with Finn. I feel like he was the strongest point of Amy’s story.

Okay so if I’m being 100% honest, Bonnie Rae drove me NUTS. Absolutely crazy. That’s the only nice way I know to say it


I didn’t believe in Bonnie and Clyde but that doesn’t mean I don’t believe in Amy Harmon. I know I can always count on her when I need some good writing in my soul.
