Book Review: Infinite Possibilities

Title Infinite Possibilities

Series The Secret Life of Amy Bensen, book 2

Author Lisa Renee Jones

Release Date November 11, 2013

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.

Review

Whenever I reviewed the first book, I said that I may or may not pick up the second book to find out more about Amy's life. Who was I kidding? I knew already that I was going to pick it up. Too many questions without answers will lead you to do drastic things... like read the sequel to a book you didn't really enjoy.

So, let me start off by saying that I was lead to believe that this book was the conclusion to Amy Bensen. That is the only reason I bothered to pick this book up. About halfway through the book, I learned that this is not the case. There’s, at least, one other book in the series. Seriously? If I would have known that, I wouldn’t have even bothered starting this disappointment. I would have just waited and read someone’s review to figure out what’s going on. Unfortunately, I learned too late.

I trudged through this book… all the way to the cliffhanger ending. And boy, was it painful. I thought the first book was less than good, but this one nearly made me give up. I found myself skipping entire paragraphs and skimming more than I’ve done in a very long time. I was absolutely annoyed with Amy and disgusted by Liam. I tried to find something redeeming about the book, but I can’t do it.

There’s a third book coming out (unable to find an expected release date), but I won’t be adding it to my to-read shelf. Yes, the next book is being told from another person’s POV (don’t want to spoil it for anyone), but I just can’t subject myself to anything else dealing with this series. All that being said, I say steer clear of this series. It’s definitely not worth the pain.
