REVIEW: INFINI BY KRISTA & BECCA RITCHIE

Infini (Aerial Ethereal #2)

Written by: Krista & Becca Ritchie

Genre: Contemporary NA Romance

Release date: January 31th 2017

      
        
Some love is infinite

"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.

Standalone New Adult Romance - Recommended for readers 18+ for mature content.

Luka Kotova is introduced in Amour Amour, and Infini takes place in the same acrobatic world. However, it's not necessary to read Amour Amour prior to Infini



MY REVIEW:


First of all, let me tell you that I completely adore all others stories by Krista & Becca Ritchie so I'm a bit heartbroken that this one didn't take over my heart and life as I hoped it would.

I didn't fall in love with the main duo and for the first time ever there was a lack of connection that I usually have with the couples in Krista & Becca Ritchie's books. Luka's and Baylee's reasons for not being able to be together got old after a while and I didn't care much to read the same we-can't-be-together-because-of-this sentiment on every other page. It felt fabricated instead of angsty to me. Moreover, all the build-up to their relationship and relationship itself happened in the past and I as a reader was never part of that so I never felt this intense connection between Luka & Baylee, their romance/situation didn't touch me and I never felt like cheering for them to get back together as a couple.

But I loved everything else – setting, amazing side characters, engaging writing and author's ability not to shy away from hard topics of mental health and present them in realistic way. In my humble opinion, Infini may not be the best by Krista & Becca Ritchie, yet it is still much better that many other NA novels out there.

Plus I adore that sibling relationships always play big and important role in Krista & Becca Ritchie's books and I absolutely loved to read about interactions among all the Kotovas in Infini! I hope there will be more from Aerial Ethereal world in the future.
