Review: Infinitely by Cheryl McIntyre
Love has no time limit.
For Briar Gallo, her lifelong best friend, Benji, was more than the boy next door. He was her first—everything. Her first friend, her first kiss, her first love, and her first heartbreak. The day Benji left was the worst day of her life. Until the day he came back.
Benjamin Borelli always knew he’d find a way back to Briar—he just couldn’t foresee the devastating circumstances that would pave his way home. A lot has changed in the three years since he’s left. Benji is no longer the sweet, easygoing kid he once was. A lifestyle of drugs and violence has hardened him, leaving him hollow and despondent. But his feelings for Briar have always been his one constant.
When a series of wrong choices and bad decisions force Benji to flee back to his childhood home, he knows he has to clean himself up and straighten out the mess he’s made before he’ll be worthy of Briar again. The only problem with his plan—there’s no outrunning the danger of his past. With the threat so close to home, he must do whatever it takes to protect the girl he’s always loved—no matter the risk.
Another amazing, phenomenal book by the wonderful and talented Cheryl McIntyre! I don’t even know where to start this review. Briar and Benji have a long history, dating back to when they were young children, one that eventually blossomed into a love that withstands time. When they were teenagers, Benji, his brother (Jax), and his mother leave town. You learn that his mother is a druggie and eventually Benji picks up some of those habits. However, there is a ton of drama that ensues. Death, a drug lord in search of payments, fires, gun shots, and so much more happens.
The ending leaves you with your jaw on the ground and me quickly search Goodreads wondering if there would be a book 2. Thank the good lord there is because the book doesn’t end with a happily ever after. I love Cheryl McIntyre’s books because she touches on topics that many authors consider voo-doo and she does it with skill, grace, and a knowledge of topic. It isn’t quite like her other books but its different and beautiful. An absolute must read!
