Infinity discovers a dark secret from her past that rocks everything she knows to be true.

A troubled 22-year-old superstar singer, Infinity has a bad reputation for drugs and hard partying. Now, she is on the road to a comeback with her controversial tour. But everything about doing the concert feels wrong from missing employees, to anonymous threats about ruining her career. She is dealing with a powerful corporation that is determined to kill her and everyone she loves. She is also battling for control of her life and career from a relationship that crossed the fine line between love and obsession. Infinity knows too much, even though she doesn't realize it. Secrets have been kept and these secrets are powerful enough to destroy her and everyone she loves.

Now she must put her safety and trust in the hands of sexy, tattooed and delicious Torch Channing and Boulder Vigari, hired to keep her from getting killed. Boulder wants to make her his. He won't stop until he claims her. Torch struggles with his primal need to possess her and his hatred of everything she represents.

Infinity is determined to protect her heart while dealing with the pressure of pulling off another successful tour without spiraling into another mental meltdown.

My Review:

At the beginning of the book, the author’s writing seemed all over the place. I kind of felt like a piece of the puzzle was missing. It was like I knew what was going on but had no idea why it was happening. Within the first couple of chapters, I realised that I was in the same boat as the main character. The same secrets that were being kept from her were being kept from me. It was an awesomely unique reading experience and I loved every moment of it.

Venez’s writing fits her style of storytelling perfectly. This was a fast paced, suspense filled novel that kept you on edge while drawing you completely into the action. Venez paints the scene in such a vividly realistic manner that the supernatural elements become natural. Nothing seems off the wall nor over the top, but yet you know that you aren’t in Kansas anymore. Her vividly written background sets the scene for her well-developed story to take you on a wild ride.

The characters that the author creates are so intricate that you can’t help but admire (or hate) them. The cast is also extremely varied. Not only is there a wide range of supernaturals, but also a very wide range of personality types. Not two characters are the same, or even similar for that matter, but each and every one is fully and uniquely developed to fulfil their role in the novel.

Overall, it did take me a couple of chapters to warm up to the story but after that I couldn’t put it down for a second. And I’ll be damned if I don’t want, no need, to know what happens next in this realistically surreal world.
