Title – Infinity + One
Author – Amy Harmon
Publication Date – June 8, 2014
This is a Standalone Novel
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.
Well, wow. I had heard so much buzz about this book and how it was the modern day Bonnie and Clyde. Seeing as how I have an odd obsession with these two lovers, I immediately knew that I just had to read it. I’ll admit that I was a tad bit worried about the direction the book would take when I first started, but I’ll also be the first to admit that I was moved and a bit pensive by the time the book ended.
Bonnie and Clyde are two characters from opposite sides of the track. Bonnie is a professional singer who has been tied to puppet strings all her life. Clyde is a wandering soul who has been dealt a hard life. They both suffer through tragic events that ultimately, I felt, sealed their bond. The premise really was a story that resembled Bonnie and Clyde with a modern day twist. Things however quickly skyrocketed and got blown out of proportion leading to the final events (which I won’t say due to spoilers).
Overall, I truly enjoyed this book. It was a little slow for me in the beginning which worried me for where it was going. The numbers talk also confused me at times, but it was still appreciative because it tied the whole story together really well. Infinity + One will definitely make you question things and ponder, but in a great philosophical way. While this is a romance, it’s also about a lot more than that. It’s two people’s journeys to becoming whole and finding their path, and I, for one, am incredibly grateful to have walked that road with Bonnie and Clyde.
