REVIEW... Infinity + One by Amy Harmon

Goodreads Blurb: 

When two unlikely allies become two unwitting outlaws, will two unforgettable lovers defy unbeatable odds?

Bonnie Rae Shelby is a superstar. She’s rich. She’s beautiful. She’s impossibly famous. And Bonnie Rae Shelby wants to die. 

Finn Clyde is a nobody. He’s broken. He’s brilliant. He’s impossibly cynical. And all he wants is a chance at life.

One girl. One boy. An act of compassion. A bizarre set of circumstances. And a choice – turn your head and walk away, or reach out your hand and risk it all? 

With that choice, the clock starts ticking on a man with a past and a girl who can’t face the future, counting down the seconds in an adventure riddled with heartbreak and humor, misunderstanding and revelation. With the world against them, two very different people take a journey that will not only change their lives, but may cost them their lives as well.

Infinity + One is a tale of shooting stars and fame and fortune, of gilded cages and iron bars, of finding a friend behind a stranger’s face, and discovering love in the oddest of places.

Infinity + One GOODREADS

This Book Nerd Says: 
I will be honest I've had this book sitting on my shelf since it's release day, other books kept jumping in front of it, including Harmon's other book Making FacesNow after I read Making Faces I was pretty nervous about reading this book. I loved Making Faces so much I was nervous about walking into this book with such a high expectation. 
Turns out I had no reason to fear because I loved Infinity + One so much as its own book. 

We first meet Bonnie Rae Shelby, beautiful rich superstar, she's in the middle of a breakdown on a bridge and she's ready to jump. If that doesn't suck you in, then maybe the guy who somehow sees her and saves her will,  Finn Clyde.
Bonnie Rae Shelby is vivacious, charming, and wants to die. 
Finn Clyde is a cynical, mathematical genius, and more than anything he wants to live. 
Bonnie & Clyde. 
Thus begins the cross country road trip that on the surface seems to be mismatched, but quickly revealed to be fate... divine even. Bonnie and Finn have more in common than they realize and even the things that are unique to them, are handled and accepted by the other with the perfect combination of maturity and understanding. Soon they're outrunning the police and needing each other more than ever. 
This story of Bonnie and Clyde kept me engrossed from beginning to end, with some laugh out loud moments, but tons more touch your heart and soul moments. 

What I enjoy the most about the both of Harmon's books that I read so far is that she focuses on the love story and not just the good sex story. This is a love story that has been replaying in my head since I've read it. It's definitely found a place on my list of favorites!

I'm giving Infinity + One 4.5 stars!
