Infinite Possibilities (The Secret Life of Amy Bensen Book Two) is the 2nd book in a three book series. Check out my review for Book one, Escaping Reality.
You know how sometimes, when you’ve read the first book in a series, and then you’ve waited forever for the second book to be released and you have all your fingers and toes crossed because you hope, hope, hope that book two will be just as good as book one? That’s what I’ve been doing since July, waiting for Infinite Possibilities to come out. Would Liam be just as bossy-hot as he was in the first book? And what about the cliffhanger we were left with? Is Liam really the bad guy? And poor Amy, is that girl going to catch a freaking break? Let me tell you, waiting the last few months was hard, but it was well worth it! Liam is still sex-on-a-stick and bossy-hot, while Amy is still trying to figure out her crazy life. I am totally in love with this series!
“Raw and honest. That is what Liam Stone claimed he wanted from me, but that is not what he gave me.”
Infinite Possibilities starts off right where Escaping Reality left off, Amy thinks Liam is the bad guy and she runs, trying to escape him. Amy is a resourceful girl and manages to ditch Liam for a bit, but come on, like a uber-rich guy of Liam’s status isn’t going to be able to find her eventually. But if Liam is able to find her, that’s means others can track her down too. Amy reminded of a caged animal during this book. When she felt cornered I pictured her wide-eyed and ready to bolt. Her decisions weren’t always the best because she was in survival mode. Her memory is slowly, and quite dramatically, making a comeback – giving her hints and glimpses into her past but the flashbacks are taking a toll on her mental and physical health. The whole time Amy is trying to figure out what or who she’s truly running from, she’s also trying to figure out what her future with Liam is going to be. Can she trust him? Is he a part of what’s happening to her now? Is he in danger for helping her?
“I swear to you, woman,” Liam vows, tearing his mouth from mine, framing my face with his hands, “from this point on, I’m going to keep you naked and in bed with me where I know you’re safe.”
Liam. Oh Liam. I like Liam. I like Liam a whole, whole lot. He is sexy. He is determined. I believe he loves Amy deeply. He’s so protective of her, it borders on being possessive but he never takes it to the scary, psychotic place, thank goodness. We get to know Liam better throughout Infinite Possibilities; his devotion to Amy is real and he will do whatever it takes to keep her safe. The love scenes in this book were kicked up a notch, reaching some pretty erotic heights… Let’s just say Liam knows how to please his lady…over, and over, and over again… Have I mentioned that I really like Liam?
While Amy is having her flashbacks and Liam is trying to figure out how to keep Amy safe, the reader is left wondering… who is chasing Amy? What the heck is going to happen to her?
About three quarters of the way through the book, I had my “HOLY CRAP I think I’ve figured it out!” moment. I was pretty excited because if I was right, that was going to be quite the twist! I wasn’t exactly sure HOW it was going to happen… but I can now say that I was mostly right. At least I think I was… Why don’t I know for sure? Because she left us kinda, sorta, hanging again! It wasn’t as bad as the first book, but there’s no way you’re not going to want to know what’s next. By the end of the book, we have a good idea of what Amy and Liam are up against, we know where Amy and Liam’s relationship stands, and we are given a new character to focus on…
“Someone buried me alive. The finality of all that once was and can never be again. There is nothing left. Nothing.”
This book was really intense. I felt like I was a passenger on the Lisa Renee Jones rollercoaster of Romantic Suspense novels. I think she plotted to torture us with the mini-cliffhangers she left at the end of each chapter. I would tell myself, just one more chapter, and then I would get to the end and there was no way I couldn’t not know what was going to happen next! I had a few, totally worth it, sleepless night’s thanks to them. There’s a third book in the series, Forsaken, which is due out in 2014. I’m counting down the days until I’m reunited with my Liam.
My rating: 5 suspenseful and erotic stars!
