Genre: New Adult, suspense

Synopsis: 

***PULL is the continuation of Claire Wallis’ sharp and shocking debut novel, PUSH. It is the second book in the series and is not intended to be a standalone.***

It is impossible for someone like me—someone with a sin-list capable of wrapping itself around the world—to find redemption. To be repaired.”

David Calgaro has secrets, and the only woman he’s ever loved is about to pay the ultimate price to protect them. He’s spent a lifetime searching for purpose and control. And the only place he’s managed to find them is in a single, perfect moment; a moment in which he has absolute control over someone else’s life.

David is unredeemable, unfixable, unsalvageable. But Emma Searfoss has forced a tiny sliver of hope to penetrate his soul. Hope that, even though redemption is impossible, maybe life isn’t. Maybe he isn’t who he thought he was. Maybe he’s meant to be more.

This is a new adult novel with mature content for readers 17 and up.

but that did not influence the review**

4 stars I’m speechless yet I have so much to say. I finished Pull a few hours ago and have been stewing on it. This was awesomely f*cked up. I love stories that twist in a crazy way, and let me tell you, this is twisted…insanely twisted….and I loved it. David and Emma’s conclusion is one wild ride.

I’m going to start with an apology because I’m going to keep this review spoiler free and vague. 1, because I’m a spoiler phobe AND 2, because I’m also afraid my emotions will give things away. What? I know, I’m sorry but it has to be this way. Trust me. You will thank me once you read it and understand.

So, as I opened the book and went over Push in my head I thought about all my theories, I was ready to go. Then I started reading and guess what? Every one of them was wrong. Every. Single. Mother. Loving. One. Then I finished the book and was like WTAF. I turned off the kindle. I sat there. I turned the kindle back on. I reread the ending. Still saying WTAF and scratching my head. But about an hour later I was like huh. Maybe. Hmmmm. YES. I got it. *bites fist so that spoilers don’t tumble out of my mouth* You guys, I’m dying here.

I know this isn’t telling you anything, but when you read Pull, it is NOT going to be what you expect. Parts of this were brilliant and made me really think because I didn’t know what I was supposed to think. What? Lol, I know, that sounds ridiculous but it’s so full of mind f*cks it’s awesome. I got it though by the end (I think) ;) and I’m pretty wow’d.

The romance was hot, it was nuts, it was perfect. David and Emma were made for each other if any two people were made for each other. Holy cow…and that’s all I’m going to say. Also, their smexy times NEVER GOT OLD.

So I have to confess: I did not like the ending. At all. It felt rushed and then there was THAT. YES THAT. WHEN HUGE MASSIVE SPOILER HERE SORRY. Did it have to end that way? I don’t know. No? *cries in my kindle* Maybe? *sighs* Well, it happened and I just didn’t like it, so yeah, sadly it knocked a whole star off. Gah, I’m dying to tell you but I won’t because it truly goes against my spoiler phobe grain.

The burning question: Rec this? Um my god YES. If you liked book 1 you definitely want to read book 2, you need to read book 2. But here’s my PSA: please, please, please make sure you have a reading buddy because I’m suffering not being able to discuss this.

Happy reading and holy crap! lol :)

Infinity + One by Amy Harmon

Infinity  Plus OneTitleInfinity + One

AuthorAmy Harmon

Published:  June 2014

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.

Ana will put Infinity + One on her top shelf!!!

I believe in Bonnie and Clyde!!

I’m almost tempted to leave it at that!  Anyone who’s read the book will understand the emotions behind that top-shelf-250-x-275statement and the fact that it means that, once again, Ms. Harmon has written a book that you want to reread the moment you finish the last page.  But I guess, in all fairness, I should probably say more for those of you who haven’t read it…so here goes!
