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.

I enjoyed every single minute of “Infinitely” by Cheryl McIntyre. She did such a wonderful job with giving us such a wonderful, powerful book filled with suspense and drama. This book is not your typical love story; this book helps us to see what addiction can do to a person and their loved ones. Sometimes we can try our best to not go down the same street that we see our family have taken but we can’t help but to be lead down that road. This is what happens to Benji, he tried but when you see yourself being so depressed that drugs is the only thing that can help to numb the pain. Then we get to see the friendship that he holds with Briar, it is one that is so strong that even three years after he left to take care of his mother and brother they still felt that love for each other. The suspense was running high I tell you, the thing is that once you find trouble it is so hard to run from it and that is what Benji had to find out the wrong way. I seriously couldn’t put down the book; I went to bed at 4 am because I kept telling myself that I need to find out what happens next. Wonderful writing by Cheryl, this is the first book that I have read by her and it definitely isn’t the last.
