Book Review – Infini (Aerial Ethereal) by Krista Ritchie, Becca Ritchie

BLURB

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.

 

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  Book 1 – Amour Amour 


My Review 

 

This was such a gorgeous, SWOOOOOOOOONY book!

From the first few pages, I was captivated and I could not put it down even for a minute.

I say it again, the entire idea of using Cirque Du Soleil as inspiration is brilliant. I have always been enchanted by the shows and the mystery about what’s going on behind the scenes has only gotten bigger.

Luka Kotova fell in love with his best friend Baylee Wright when they were just teenager. It was forbidden  for minors to have a sexual relationship, and so they kept it secret for a long time.

An unfortunate  event brought it all out into the open and their life as they knew it came to a crushing end.

Ripped by  Aerial Ethereal’s corporate management they were forced to live their life thousands of miles apart from each other until a lucky change in the choreography of INFINI brought them back together.

Almost 5 years went by when Luka and Baylee finally met again.

For them it’s like they were frozen in time.

Neither was able to move on. Both were still utterly and completely in love with the other person. It was never just a teenage crush or an infatuation for them. No – it was the real deal. A deep, and soul connecting love that endured even the longest separation.

Even so they were finally living in the same city, and working on the same show, Aerial Ethereal didn’t make it easy on them.

They once again felt helpless and powerless like marionettes. While corporate management decided how high to jump. It was up to them to decide if it’s all worth it.

 


 

I thought INFINI was heart-achingly beautiful. It gripped me by my heart and didn’t let go.

Both Luka Kotova and Baylee Wright were incredibly genuine and authentic characters. Both were deeply flawed and very relatable.  They struggled with life’s ups and downs. Even so their life looked exotic and fascinating but behind the curtain it was a very different story.

But their love was pure.

I never once doubted their devotion or loyalty for each other. They got a second chance and dove in wholeheartedly – body and soul.

But my heart also ached for them.

The way they were ripped apart as teenager was brutal, and heartless. And it changed them both in ways nobody could have predicted.

I thought the authors did a phenomenal job portraying the struggle and joy they experienced.

But Luka and Baylee weren’t the only once that struggled with decisions and forgiveness. It was amazing how one decision can ultimately change multiple lives forever, and forgiveness must be earned.

The entire cast of INFINI was spectacular. So many layers to be peeled. Secrets uncovered. Feelings hurt.

I truly thought the Kotova family was by far the most interesting group of people I’ve read about in a long time. And I can only imagine how many more stories are waiting to be told.

I honestly NEED a book about Timo and John – I NEED IT RIGHT NOW!!

And one about Dimitri with Camila and maybe Sergei’s own story.

 

4.5 stars
