“Hey Charlie,” he mumbled.
“Marry me.”
“No Colin. Not today”

HOLY FUCKING EPILOGUE :O I AM GOING TO CUT THE BITCH. [but I read the author's comment that the person doesn't have even a side character type role in book2, so my nerves feel better]

I seriously need the second book now, but I'm glad its only barely 2 months away :D :D Aug, 2013.

•LOVED the book!!
•Dialogue delivery needs working on; Don't get me wrong.. they were HOT but seemed very dragged/forced types at times

I don't do the reviews, I'm not good at these but after I read this book I've to write it for myself, because everytime I read a book it gets me into a space where I live it. This book was nothing but confusing, depressing write.

I believe in love, so very much. I'm a believer in fairy-tales romances, where in the end love wins over everything. I can stand everything, every hardship, I can even stand break-ups, lefting out, storming out when you're angry with the person you love. The only thing I

“Charlie, when you walked into your dad’s office on the first day we met, I knew that you were something special. These last two years haven’t always been easy, but I never once regretted meeting you until this moment. You are the only person that I have ever given my whole self to and you are destroying me before you are even giving me a chance to make our lives complete.”

Ummmmm....okay. First let me start off by saying that my emotions (mostly anger and confusion) were all over the place when reading Falling Into Infinity

Saw high ratings. Read some reviews. Decided to give it a shot.

Immediately upon starting on this adventure, I had to bite my tongue. Charlie came off a bit immature, standoffish and not what I was expecting to be introduced to so immediate in the story. But, I still progressed to find out what her deal was.

Then I meet Colin. Or Colin.Fucking

Love is truly sweeter the second time around.

I really loved the story of Colin.Fucking.McKinney and Caroline "Charlie" Collins. I have always been such a fan of books that are sports-related so Colin being a quarterback definitely got me interested right from the start. But most importantly, I truly believed their story.
“Hey Charlie,” he mumbled.

Falling Into Infinity is a very nice debut from new author Layne Harper!! This story has drama and just the right amount of light-hearted humor, and it should appeal well to those who enjoy both.

Caroline Collins, better known as Charlie to her friends and most of her family, is a young, determined, goal-oriented Sophomore when she meets quarterback Colin McKinney. Their relationship grows slowly from friendship into much more, and this is cause for concern in Charlie’s mind. Her immediate plans

This is Charlie for you:

I might have given this 5 stars, but then came the epilogue and I knew it wouldn't end here. Now I have to sit and wait for August to hopefully get a HEA! Very enjoyable read. I would never have guessed this to be a debut novel. Looking forward to reading more from Layne Harper. Can't wait until the next one is out. ...more

Charlie is graduating from college and heading to medical school to follow in her father’s footsteps. Charlie’s father and mother were married when he was in medical school and her mother supported him along with 4 daughters during his post-graduate years. Once the father was established in his practice he left his wife for the head nurse. Charlie’s mother never got to experience the life that she had worked so hard to support. Instead she was barely keeping it together for the girls an

This was an interesting read for me. At first I couldn't believe what Charlie was doing but after sleeping on it, I get it. There were many parts that I liked about the book.

Charlie was young and had plans and felt suffocated. She was consumed with Colin and had demons that needed to be conquered. Her decisions came from a very mature place for a 21 year old girl who had hot,rich, superstar boyfriend.

Speaking of said boyfriend, Colin was awesome. I loved the way he treated her, how he only had

I really enjoyed the first 75% of this book. I was a little confused at first with the way the book was set up with one chapter in the present and one in the past, but as I continued reading it started making more sense. It was the last 25% which threw me off a lot. To be honest, this book is more of a 3.5 than either a 3 or a 4 on the rating scale. I was frustrated with both Charlie and Colin for the way they behaved. Both in the past and the present. I was also a little disappointed. The book' ...more
What I know after reading 4% of this book:

MC has perfect car ($85,000)
Perfect handbag ($3500)
Perfect NFL star, rich boyfriend
Perfect relationship
Perfect best friend
Perfect brain
Perfect, cutesy name

I am assuming she also has a perfect body and perfect face and perfect hair and is perfect in bed. I guess I'll never know because I. Just. Can't.

I must have read a different book to everyone else? I'm quite proud of myself for finishing this. I wanted to give up on quite a few occasions. I hate books where the guy is an arrogant asshat and bossy too. It didn't sit well with me at all. I really didn't like this story at all. As for the ending? I don't think I will be continuing with this series because I really don't care what happens. ...more

I'm all inlove with this bittersweet tale of young love that transcends through time.Such a beautiful and sweet story of love that it made my heart burst in happiness but it also made my heart ached for the character's broken love.

"If you love something, you have to let it go. If it comes back to you, it's yours forever. If it doesn't, then it was never meant to be." This saying was a perfect description on how Collins and Charlie's love went through.

Wow!!!! Loved loved loved the story between Colin and Charlie!!
This is the story of two people whose paths crossed which led to friendship, passion, and love!
Colin was the quarterback for Texas A&M and was destined for the NFL. He grew up with a great family and had what people only dreamed of.
Charlie grew up from a divorced family and watched first hand how her dad destroyed their family with infidelity. She had a love or boyfriends until med school. Too bad things don't always work

Brilliant brilliant book. I was holding my breath all the way. I couldnt breathe. Just awaiting what happens next was sucking out all the air from me.

Charlie is a great herione in this book. I felt like slapping her throughout the book. Some decisions she made, made me frustrated. I wanted her to be stronger in some situations. Overall she is a strong hearted girl. She made the right decision.

I have to admit, I wasn't sure I was going to finish this one early on. The heroine grated on my nerves and if felt too childish but then shit got REAL.

I can't say that I'm happy he's with Dallas but I did love the Texas roots and the absolute true to size fascination we have with our football players from High School on up.

I'm not typically a fan of NA, which is likely why I struggled so much at the beginning. This is absolutely a powerful romance between two very stubborn, and let's

Let me start out by saying that I thoroughly enjoyed this debut novel from author Layne Harper! Colin and Caroline (Charlie) were amazing characters and it was absolutely a joy to get lost in their story. I was captivated in every way by this book and spent a number of pages in tears, laughter and finally holding my breath a few times.

Here is the one thing that sets Layne Harper's book apart....we are all used to the girl loves boy, boy loves girl storyline. What took me a moment to get use to w
My family couldn't find me this weekend because I kept avoiding them- I didn't want anyone interrupting my reading of the Infinity series by Layne Harper. I read the whole series in just a couple days, and stayed up late to do so.

I am a huge fan of sports romances and this series was a great addition to that genre. I read mixed reviews of the series (to each his own) but for me it was wonderful following the life and love of Caroline (Charlie) and star quarterback Colin over the four book seri

i LOVED this book, and I don't ever write reviews. If you liked The Oppertunist by Tarryn Fisher, you will love this book. They are both AMAZING books, but this is in no way a copy or a bad remake.

ok, here it is in short:
1. I LOVED this book!
2. The characters are awesome, Colin is an awesome hot football player; Charlie/Caroline is a bit of cold bitch, but she is likeable! LOL
3. The love between these 2 characters is an amazing to read, their joys, their struggles, their insecurities, their unending commitment
4. The book can be divided into 2 parts: Part 1 - their college years, Part 2 -their adult relationship
5. The book ends on a high note, but it will continue in a second book--it has

This book is divided between the past and the present, and the past part goes between 3 years or so.
That part confused me a bit, I never knew (even when it was clear) when things happened.
But even so I was enjoying it before the present part.
I'm reading book 2 already, because now I can't stop!
Even though some things are not really relateable, my overall impression is good!
