Gwen and Nathan's story second and last book.

First of all, I'm pleased to read a short serie. It's a nice change to those going on and on.
I did love Gwen and Nathan in the first instalment and was really happy to read more about their journey.

The author does a fantastic job addressing very hurtful and delicate matters. The writing is very mature and I was surprised to learn she is only 23. I fully experienced the emotions and the guilt carried by the main characters. Tears were never far(how inconvenient while on the train) as well as anger, disgust and revolt. I just couldn't stop to empathize with Gwen for her loss and weep for Nathan, going through all his ordeals completely alone. He has become an amazing man, even with all his little quirks. He cares enormously for Gwen and I got to see the extent of his love and devotion for her.
The author chose a very moving way to let us experience the birth of his love for Gwen, all the guilt, anxiety but also incredible happiness he's been living with. I kept reading and reading, immersed in his feelings.

As a mum, my heart broke for the little kid. I raged with Gwen knowing what he's been put through. I too would have liked to revive his tormentor to kill him once more.

Even if the nature of the trauma has been revealed in the first book, this one is still full of surprises, unearthed secrets and has many twists and turns.

And the end was just amazing.

"I believe in Bonnie and Clyde" and I believe in Amy Harmon!

I became a HUGE fan since "Running Barefoot" and "Making Faces" just blew me away. Every one of her book is a pearl and "Infinity + One" is an other masterpiece. I baught "Infinity + One" with blind faith, not knowing what would be the plot and I'm so happy I did it.
Amy has me wrapped around her little finger.

I love her writing style. It's elegant, light, effortless (or so it seems)and deeply beautiful (I'd like to write weepily beautiful). And her books are always insightful (I know, no pressure for your next book Amy, sorry :-).

Back to "Infinity + One" now.

Finn (Infinity Clyde) is an ex con who was at the bad place at the bad time. He's been convicted to four years prison for unknowingly helping his brother in an armed robbery.But he is so much more than that. He is a brilliant mathematician. I loved how Amy made mathematics seem like beautiful poetry. It's a tribute to her talent really because I assure you I'm not usually moved by paradox and equations.

Finn will rescue Bonnie Rae, country singer and acclaimed star. Right after his heroic move, he questions his decision: "He sat on the Blazer's rusted bumper, torn between his own survival and the survival of the weeping girl he'd walked away from."

Bonnie Rae is in a bad place, grieving the death of her identical twin, Minnie Mae. Her entourage, especially her Gran, has used her talent to bring in money, uncaring for her own feelings."They didn't tell me(her sister's death)until after her funeral, a week later. And Gran didn't want me to cancel the dates."

Her whole world fell apart "When I got home, nobody was there but my mama. Daddy had moved out, Cash was in jail and Hank just out of rehab." "Time may heal all wounds but it ain't no plastic surgeon". Her Gran is determined to reap all the money she can from Bonnie's celebrity "My job is making money. It's just... everything I thaught I was working for was a lie. Gran had stolen every part of me."

When both meet, they'll embark on a road trip across US. Bonnie just wants to find herself, to find "real", to think. She immediately trust Finn "Big, bad, long haired and tatooed. A bit uptight." She soon realises she was "starving, hungry for companionship, affection, connection."

They'll overcome many ordeals on their road trip and it'll cement their connection and deepen their feelings. It'll become a healing journey, a time to come to term with their twin's death.

Amy made me smile and hope in human goodness with all Bonnie and Finn's helping gestures. They were like The Good Samaritan. Bonnie honours her sister's memory " Behind everyone in need Minnie saw an opportunity to make the world a better place.It was like she knew she had only a little while to leave her mark."
Amy made me cry too "Do you ever feel like you've forgotten something only to realize it's not something, it's someone... I'll check to make sure I haven't left my purse, my phone..Then I realize it's Minnie. I've lost Minnie."

This book, like "Making faces" and her other books made me feel cleansed. Like the earth after a storm when the light is softer, the air is lighter and nature's smell is so powerful it soaks our soul and leave us with peace in our mind and a smile on our face.
That's the power of Amy, her special grace.

Don't ever stop writing stories Amy, I like them too much.

I really wanted to like it but
Too short, too much sex (never thaught I would say it) and lack of backbone in the story. I hate when writers slice their stories in so many little pièces we're kept waiting. Sorry but it's not enough for me. I can't commiserate with Andrew nor forgive him for what he is doing to Aubrey because we don't have time to understand or enough explanations.
It's as Andrew is just a douche and Aubrey has no self esteem and act like a sex crazed kitten. I'll buy book 3 only if it's a "real" book, with more than 100 pages and more substance.

So, so disappointed here.

I thaught I woul read "an other" forbidden love story teacher/student but iy was so much more.

This is about grief, about losing those you love, about finding yourself. It's about friendshipo, about tolerance, about ... well you get the gist of it.

It's beautifully written, with wonderful characters and I cried buckets.

Each time Ashlyn read one of Gaby's letter I felt overwhelmed by emotion. And God I hated the author for what happened to Ryan!

But she is still forgiven and I'll keep looking for her other books.

The book was free so ... but 7% in the story I thaught "What the Hell!!!!???". Male rape? Manipulative "higher race" with a strong sex drive playing with humans... I must confess I was somewhat disgusted.

What sick book is it?

But... I went on and astonishly, it grew on me! I would never have believed it but I warmed to the characters and to this "alternate reality".

Of course, it took some big butt kicking by the heroine. She had to constantly save the weak humans and tame the big bad wolves.

Now, I'm really enjoying the serie (finished book 2 and will begin book 3), crazy sexual universe and all.

Sasha is a smartmouthed heroine with punky attitude. She is fragile, never fitting in but also incredibly strong. Untrained, her magic and spells often backlash but she gives everything she has to save the day.

Stefan is sex on legs (alpha male leader oozing power and sex) and Charles is strangely endearing with his nonplussed sex drive. Nearly refreshing with no ounce of shame (always hitting on Sacha like a kid in hope of candy). Astonishing really!

I never thaught it would work but somehow it does. I still don't understand this mystery but whatever, I have a great time!

3,5 to 4 stars.

All in all, a really enjoyable read and I'm glad the author sent me her story.

The plot: Olivia (her human name and Teil her annax name) fled Viddion, the annax city at the age of ten. Raised by very religious human foster parents with a kickass sister, she vowed to never come back. Now a teacher (but frightened to teach teens)fate is conspiring and forces her to return to her old city as a school's representative of a student exchange project.

Extrimely traumatised by her past Olivia is overwhelmed by panic attacks but tries to retain her sanity and accomplish her mission. In a desperate attempt to control her emotions and deny her inner wild annax nature she plays "miss prim and proper" in crisp suits and city shoes totally inadequate for the wild environment.

But from the moment she meets Baphrem, larenleader's son and Captain of the Guard, all hope to remain cool and controlled is lost. He pushes all her buttons to awaken her wild side and force her to find her connection to become her true self. Their attraction is instantaneous, sparks fly and the battle of will takes epic proportions.
While both characters engage in a power joust, someone is slowly poisoning the larenleader and the tionnax, annax enemies, lurk at the border.

What I really did like was the battle between Olivia/Teil and Baphrem. Olivia is victim of Baphrem's pranks and retaliate with energy determined to avenge herself. Baphrem is hot but he is also like those boys in love with a girl and pestering her to attract her attention. I laughed at their antics and awaited the next round delightedly.

Thanks to their tumultuous relationship there never was a dull moment in the book.
The universe is original and interesting but its complexity left me confused sometimes.

Klias, Baphrem's friend and arctic warrior was a very interesting character and I'd like to read its story in an other book.

I'm a big fan of Tillie Cole's work. I loved her other three books, the humor, the banter and glittery sidekick. Cherry on top: hot strong alpha male character (each time I'm a gonner ...).

Well It Ain't Me babe is really different but still very, very good.
It's deep, violent, sometimes awful with atrocities commited within the sect (rape of children). But above all else is the desperate need of a boy/man to find and protect his girl. Strong alpha male here I come!

The plot:
Mae (Salome) has only known a reclusive life in the midst of Prophet David's sect. Under pretense of saving the world and atoning for women's sins, the elders use and abuse women. The most beautiful are no better than sex slaves since childhood.

When Mae meets River (Styx) she is eight and has been deeply shocked by what's been done to her. It all happens in that moment, when two opposite worlds collide. And she fall hard for the mute biker boy.
Fifteen years later, she escapes the commune in tragical circomstances. Dying and unconscious, she is saved by Styx aka River. Stix is now the Hangmen's President an outlaw MC. Hot as Hell and merciless, he has sinned in many ways all his violent life and knows no other way to live. Feared by all, the Hangmen Mute is putty in Mae's hands. She is the girl with the Wolf's Eyes, never forgotten, his impossible dream. All muscles, tatoos and testosterone, Styx is ready to kill anyone threatening Mae.

But here comes the crux: how could a girl like Mae fit in his world? Mae is like an innocent newborn child in so many ways. She does not know what a TV or a bike is and has sex slave conditioning. Torn, Styx does not want to taint her but is desperate to be with her.

Mae is beautiful and pure. She has always bend in her life until running away but she has an impressive inner strenght. Wanted by all for her beauty, she is determined to fit in Styx world and become his old Lady.

From the on, many difficulties, conspiracies, twist and turn await the reader. Enjoy the ride!

Not a dull moment, full of surprises and great characters.

I love Jayne, she rocks the old fae world. Sassy mouth, sarcastic, loyal, courageous and mischievous.
She comes no holds barred in this fae world, makes mistakes but saves the day.
It reminds me of the Shadow Fall serie with the supernatural bunch of incredible friends, plot and humour.

You've got (no telling names because I don't want to spoil the fun):
- a hot incubus, always trying to get in her pants;
- an archer, green fae and former redneck;
- a bubbly water sprite whose moto is "make love not war";
- a daemon protector with Viking's good looks;
- a farting crazy pixie;

werewolves, sirens, witches ...all supernatural creatures.

I juts read the 4 books in less than three days. Go for it

I've waited many, many months for the story of Emily and Cameron to continue.

Speak of a cliffhanger at the end of the first one. Really, what did you to us, poor readers Julie?

If you've read Crow's Row, you already now that Cameron let Emily believe he was dead to protect her from Viktor. He is determined to keep her safe and so out of his world. Well, it turned out as his worst decision. In the second book, Emily will suffer from deep despair and sink in a bottomless pit. Until she will shake herself and seek revenge. So this book is told from both point of view, Emily's and Cameron. None of them cope well while apart and it was really, really hard to read because I love both so much!

While reading Scare Crow I wanted to throw my Ereader through the window (on Emily's bad days) or kiss it maddly (when a ray of hope came into her life). Let me tell you, this book is a hazard for your health. I think my heart aged ten years while reading.

For once, I'll write a review as a reading journal. This is the roller-coaster of my emotions and thaughts. Be brave, the worst is yet to come.

15% in the book and already biting my nails! Poor Emily. If it's not a HEA or it's ending on a humongous cliffhanger I'll need gallons of ice cream and a container of tissues.

27% Hope comes to Emily! Cameron struggles ...Gah! This is awful I'm dying slowly ... I'm going back to my book.

57% Emily's had a personality transplant! Gone the sweet and kind girl, welcome the vengeful, determined woman. Bye, bye hope Emily is once more in a pit of despair! Cameron is plotting the demise of Viktor and walks a fine line with the captains of the underworld. As always, he tries to protect his loved ones but let the darkness grow in his soul.

67% Emily's gone home to her horrible family. Cold and selfish parents. God, she's had a truly sad and bitter youth. Cheers for the caring maids! Unexpected help comes to her and she is set again on her vengeful journey. Emily, is it really wise? Do you truly want to doom yourself and take this path???

85% Oh Hell!!!! She is letting go and moving on. Cameron too. NOOOOOO! I want them back together. Rewind, please change the story ...

100% Finished! And I won't spill the beans! You have to read it all by yourself.

Happy reading and thank you Julie! You took your time but now I know it was worth it! Well done.

I did like it indeed but it was too short! It's unnerving because I have to wait for the second installment and I think the author could have made it in one book! It's not like it's 500 pages or so. So what?
GRRRR, frustrated reader here!
