Secrets and lies. They are everywhere: haunting her, tormenting her. In the midst of it all, he’d been her escape, her passion. The only person she’d trusted in six years. And then he’d made her doubt that trust, cutting her deeply. But as she’d once told him, she was damaged, not broken. She is ready to fight and not just for survival. She is fighting for the truth and she won’t stop until she has it, not even for…him.

My thoughts…

I have been so excited for this book to come out. The first one ended with a pretty big cliffhanger and so of course I couldn’t wait to find out what would happen next. Having said that I was way over halfway through the book before things started to get interesting. The first half there really wasn’t anything exciting happening. I kept wondering if things would indeed pick up. I was ready for the suspense element to kick into high gear. Sadly I had to wait a long time. I almost feel this book wasn’t necessary. I think the author could have expanded the first book into a full length novel to include the high points in this one and had everything wrapped up in one book.

Infinite Possibilities also ends with a cliffhanger. This time I’m not as excited and here is why. Before this book was released the author added info on Goodreads for the third book. The synopsis states that it’s Chad’s book. As far as the reader is concerned he is dead along with the rest of Amy’s family. To me this sort of ruined the suspense that there was going to indeed be a third book. I guess it really isn’t a big deal. I just think it would have been better had the author not post book info on Goodreads until after the reader has a chance to reach the end of book two.

Overall, I can say I enjoyed this book although I think it could have been a bit better. The suspense element just wasn’t what it was in book one. As I previously stated there is a third book coming and it will be Amy’s brother Chad’s book.

Infinite possibilities….
Infinite passion…..
Infinite danger….

His touch spirals through me, warm and sweet, wicked and hot. I shouldn’t trust him. I shouldn’t tell him my secrets. But how do I not when he is the reason I breathe? He is what I need.

At the young age of eighteen, tragedy and a dark secret force Lara to flee all she has known and loves to start a new life. Now years later, with a new identity as Amy, she’s finally dared to believe she is forgotten–even if she cannot forget. But just when she lets down her guard, the ghosts of her past are quick to punish her, forcing her back on the run.

On a plane, struggling to face the devastation of losing everything again and starting over, Amy meets Liam Stone, a darkly entrancing recluse billionaire, who is also a brilliant, and famous, prodigy architect. A man who knows what he wants and goes after it. And what he wants is Amy. Refusing to take “no” as an answer, he sweeps her into a passionate affair, pushing her to her erotic limits. He wants to possess her. He makes her want to be possessed. Liam demands everything from her, accepting nothing less. But what if she is too devastated by tragedy to know when he wants more than she should give? And what if there is more to Liam than meets the eyes?

My thoughts…

OMG! Why do I torture myself with series books? It drives me crazy when I get to the end and have to wait however long to read the next book or the conclusion. Even though I say I’m not going to read a book that ends with a cliffhanger I do it anyway. o.O lol

This is the case with this series. I knew it wasn’t going to be wrapped up in one book, but the blurb sucked me in and I knew I had to read it now. Lisa Renee Jones is fastly becoming one of my favorite authors. She has a great writing style and I really enjoy her books.

Amy is running. Something has happened in her past that isn’t revealed within this book. There are hints or should I say flashbacks that she has, but nothing is completely revealed. It’s going to be big I can feel it.

Liam. What can I say. He’s tall, dark, and handsome. He’s also a billionaire. Upon meeting Amy there is a mutual attraction that neither can deny. When these two come together things get hot! Really hot. The sexual scenes are well written and will make you blush.

From the very beginning things start slowly building and building. Just when you think you might figure out what’s going on something else happens. I found myself suspecting everyone. I couldn’t quite figure out who to trust. And the ending….. What a cliffhanger. There are so many pieces to this puzzle. I cannot wait to see how they all fit together and complete the picture.

If you’re a fan of new adult and suspense style reads then I highly suggest you read this one. It’s so good!
