REVIEW TOUR + GIVEAWAY ~Infinite Possibilities by Lisa Renee Jones~

*Spoliers: If you haven't read the first book, there are some spoilers.*

Title: Infinite Possibilities
Author: Lisa Renee Jones
Series: The Secret Life of Amy Bensen #2
Release Date: November 11, 2013

My Rating: 5+ Stars
Secrets and lies. They are everywhere: haunting her, tormenting her. 

In the midst of it all, he’d been her escape, her passion. The only person she’d trusted in six years. And then he’d made her doubt that trust, cutting her deeply. But as she’d once told him, she was damaged, not broken. She is ready to fight and not just for survival. She is fighting for the truth and she won’t stop until she has it, not even for…him

Infinite Possibilities was everything that I love in a book and more. Liam and Amy walk a fine line between devastation and their happily ever after. Amy can't figure out who she can trust, and Liam will go to the ends of the universe to prove he is the one Amy will always be able count on. In true Lisa Renee Jones style, she had me completely wrecked, giddy, swooning and blubbering while reading this book. If I hadn't had prior commitments I would have finished it in one sitting. Yes, it was that good.

"And before I can catch my breath, his mouth slants over mine and he is kissing me, a deep, passionate, emotional kiss, that is anguish and pain, and everything I haven't said but I feel."

Infinite Possibilities picks up where Escaping Reality left off, and then jumps ahead a few months. Amy is on the run again and Liam is desperately trying to find her, and eventually he does. Unfortunately, Liam wasn't the only one on Amy's trail and soon enough they start taking anyone's life who stands in their way of finding Amy and getting what they want. While Amy's heart feels safe with Liam, her head keeps doubting his intentions. With her traumatic blackouts and past, she always has one foot out the door. And like Amy, I kept waiting for the other shoe to drop. And boy did it. There are so many surprises in this book, I didn't even know who Amy should trust! There's a whole host of characters who sometimes seem trustworthy and at other times seem shady as all hell. The book, like the first, is written from Amy's POV. It enabled me to get inside her head, feel her fear and her doubts but, also feel that pull she and Liam have towards one another. With the style and expertise of the writing in this book I was no longer a reader but, a part of the story.

"He's my escape, the only place I can let go, the only place I can trust."

Amy and Liam face obstacle after obstacle. And while their relationship grows stronger, so does Amy's own personality. She goes from being terrified of the past she has forgotten to a headstrong woman who allows her blackouts to consume her so she can find answers. The closer she comes to those answers the hazier reality gets. There are quite a few surprises in this story that I didn't see coming. I had my suspicions but, with a mastermind of storytelling like Ms. Jones you can never be too sure of what's coming next. She keeps you guessing until the very end and keeps you completely enthralled the whole way there. Liam and Amy's journey only got started in Escaping Reality, and you can bet that Infinite Possibilities is an even more thrilling read. I think my heart was broken and pieced back together about 10 times while I read this book. One part in particular was completely heartbreaking, and while I understood that it was a necessary evil, I was still  left feeling a little shattered. But no worries, that wasn't my conclusive feeling from the book. There was so much more going on after, that I was left with a semi-peaceful yet eager feeling. Eager, because I simply can't wait for this captivating world to continue telling its story, and peaceful, because there was a modicum of closure in the end. Overall: absolutely fantastic book. Definitely up to par with Lisa Renee Jones' amazing books. AND we do get a confirmation that the series will be continuing, but in a different fashion. You'll have to read it to find out how :)

Happy Reading!
