Blog Tour Stop: Infinitely (#1) by Cheryl McIntyre

Love has no time limit.

For Briar Gallo, her lifelong best friend, Benji, was more than the boy next door. He was her first—everything. Her first friend, her first kiss, her first love, and her first heartbreak. The day Benji left was the worst day of her life. Until the day he came back.

Benjamin Borelli always knew he’d find a way back to Briar—he just couldn’t foresee the devastating circumstances that would pave his way home. A lot has changed in the three years since he’s left. Benji is no longer the sweet, easygoing kid he once was. A lifestyle of drugs and violence has hardened him, leaving him hollow and despondent. But his feelings for Briar have always been his one constant.

When a series of wrong choices and bad decisions force Benji to flee back to his childhood home, he knows he has to clean himself up and straighten out the mess he’s made before he’ll be worthy of Briar again.

The only problem with his plan—there’s no outrunning the danger of his past. With the threat so close to home, he must do whatever it takes to protect the girl he’s always loved—no matter the risk.

*Due to harsh language, violence, drug use, and sexual situations, this book is recommended for 17+.

Karmen's Review
Wow! I love all of Ms. McIntyre's books and Infinitely is no exception. This is definitely different than her other series. As you probably know, this book ends with a "WTF" cliffhanger and I typically hate reading books that leave me hanging, but once I started I could not put this book down! And I'm now desperate for more!
Infinitely took me a wild ride of suspense, mystery and plenty of drama. Plus, the relationship between Benji and  Briar is so beautiful (and heartbreaking!). I loved the story of their friendship as young kids to them falling in love as teens. 

"She's my map--my compass.
Every route, every arrow, every road points to her..."

Benji returns home after being gone for three years. He's no longer the sweet boy, Briar once knew. Benji is distant and has plenty of secrets he's hiding from Briar. Not understanding why, Briar does not give up on finding the boy she once knew. Their reunion was a heartbreaking, I felt for Briar, but also understood why Benji was the way he was with her (no spoilers!).

I can't and won't go in details of this book, it's just one book that you must read. It's fast paced with action and sweetness.You'll love all the secondary characters in this book too. I'm waiting patiently for Eternally because I can't wait to see how Benji and Briar's story unfolds. I want to them have a perfect HEA, but I have a feeling more drama and angst will happen after the ending this book!
