“Don’t have a best friend that’s a girl” — this was the advice from my older cousin. I didn’t take it. Because he followed with, “friends don’t f*ck friends. And you’ll want to f*ck her.”

It was terrible advice.

My cousin should’ve told me that being best friends with Baylee Wright — since she was twelve — would be the best and worst decision of my life.

He should have told me to protect her from what was coming.

He should have told me that when a darkness crawled towards us, there’d be no safety net.

Now I’ve signed back on to the same Vegas acrobatic show as Baylee, working together for the first time in years. And she tells me that she’s having trouble in a certain “area” of her life — because of our past.

“You can help me fix it,” she says.

And then she hands me a list.AMAZONIBOOKSGOODREADS


Infini is such a beautifully intense, painfully emotional, and deeply passionate journey about the kind of love that's so forever ... it's infinite.

"All I know is what I feel. And I'm in love with you, Bay. Right now. Not just five years ago - but here, today. Yesterday. Tomorrow. It's forever kind of love, and I'm not letting go. I can't let go."

This book was so (gah, I'm choking up now just thinking about it!) raw and real, gritting and exhilarating in the emotions it inspired, that I had to put the book down for a day before I could pick it up again. But when I did, I couldn't stop reading.
Do you still think about me?
Are you the same as you once were?
How much have we both changed?

Because with Infini, Krista and Becca Ritchie stole my heart, crushed it in their fists, and then fixed the broken pieces of my heart with their written words.
"I have lived partially. Halfly. Incompletely. To be whole, I did not know until my bones thundered and bellowed for more."

The style of their writing is gorgeous, and the tone of this book is heartbreaking and hopeful all at once that even with all the emotions overwhelming me, I wanted to read more and more and more until I consumed Luka and Baylee's story as much as it had consumed me.
“I feel the safest in your arms, but in reality it’s the most dangerous place to be.”

Luka Kotova and Baylee Wright's story from friends to lovers, to something more, to nothing at all, to a hopeful something again, was more than my poor heart expected. But in the most glorious, I'll-never-forget-and-never-regret kind of way.
"Our chests rise at the same time, and in a crowd full of people, with all eyes on me, I mouth, I love you."

All in all, I highly, highly recommend Infini to those who are looking for an angsty read that's also so complicated in its gut-wrenching romance, you'll be infinitely scarred by Laylee's love
“Circus is family.” The love we carry for each other is the strongest and most vulnerable place in us all.
