Some love is infinite

"Don’t have a best friend that’s a girl" — this was the advice from my older cousin. I didn’t take it. Because he followed with, "friends don’t f*ck friends. And you’ll want to f*ck her."

It was terrible advice.

My cousin should’ve told me that being best friends with Baylee Wright — since she was twelve — would be the best and worst decision of my life

Release date TBA, but it'll release after the last book in the Addicted series (Long Way Down). These two books aren't related of course, but lots of people ask if Infini will trump Long Way Down in terms of dates. It won't, but we're very, very excited to share Infini with all of you!!


*** COMING JANUARY 31st 2017 ***


I am just so overwhelmed with the emotions and angst and gut wrenching love this book portrayed.

Krista & Becca Ritchie depict a forbidden and tragic love story that is interwoven with their signature ensemble casts and touching family dynamics.

For those who haven't read Amour Amour - Luka is part of the Kotova family, who all perform in various circus acts in Vegas run by the same corporate company. He's a kleptomaniac among many other issues, but is the sweetest, most caring, and empathetic lov

“The love we carry for each other is the strongest and most vulnerable place in us all.”

There’s one thing I always know when I start reading a KB Ritchie book: I’m going to fall in love with the characters. All of them, main characters or side characters, strong or silent, outspoken or timid. No one does character development like Krista and Becca Ritchie.

Infini tells us the story of Luka and Baylee, two performers who work for the same aerial c

I think I consider Krista & Becca ones of my favorite authors -I really do.

Infini was a lot more fun than I was expecting it and full of heartbreaking moments. Not only this book managed to make me laugh my ass off, but it also made me shut my eyes tight and pray these characters were given a happy ending.

I liked a lot about this story, and this time around I enjoyed all the characters. My reading experience was also greater, Amour Amour was awkward at times and I feared this book was going to

IInfini is nothing like what I imagined. (That’s not a bad thing.) Prior to reading this novel, I had this fictionalize expectation that builds up within me, not all of them were met or canon. (Again, not a bad thing.) I thought it’s going to be all fun, cutesy, and as wild just like Amour Amour but the threshold exceeded that level.

A Million Infinite Stars!

Going into any book by the Ritchie sisters is an event. It requires complete “do not disturb” atmosphere because once the words start to flow inside the reader's head, all is lost except the story unfolding. Infini is no different from their prior works in that it is story so consuming and so passionately raw that it is more than just fiction…it is an experience.

It's absolutely amazing friends to lovers new adult story. You're going to fall in love with Luka and Baylee. Their love story is epic, emotional and smoking hot. It's not simple, but worth every moment. And all this in an unusual background of circus and Las Vegas.

I love the KB twins. If you are like me, you have read the Addicted series multiple times and even listen to the audio books more than once.

Infini is part of the Aerial Ethereal series and can be read as a standalone. I highly recommend you read Amour Amour first to get the full experience, but it’s not necessary.

Infini is just like the Addicted series and is completely opposite of the Addicted series as well. It’s the same in the way it has the KB signature style writi
Everyone will talk about Luka’s generosity, but I always see his empathy surpassing everything else. It’s his foundation. It’s why he loves so strongly.

I’m currently running on like zero sleep because of this book so bear with me. I’m trying to make this review as less “rambly” as possible, but that’s always pretty difficult to do with your favorite books. I just want to start with saying that this was like nothing I was expecting, but I was never disappointed.

I could have possibly considered reading if the heroine hadn't been celibate but AGAIN with this sexist garbage?

I love these authors. I think they're incredible. From their world building to their writing to the characters they give us, I can never get enough! And while I liked Bailey, Luka was the star of the show for me. I connected with him immediately.

Thanks to Krista and Becca for giving me the ARC of Infini. This meant more to me than I could ever express with words.

You think it’s easy to talk about something that you’re so passionate about? Well, in some ways it is easy if you don’t mind reading inconsequential, incoherent, fangirly stuff. But trying to collect my thoughts to sound intelligible enough not to embarrass myself proved to be not an easy task.

First of all, let me tell you that I completely adore all others stories by Krista & Becca Ritchie so I'm a bit heartbroken that this one didn't take over my heart and life as I hoped it would.

I didn't fall in love with the main duo and for the first time ever there was a lack of connection that I usually have with the couples in Krista & Becca Ritchie's books. Luka's and Baylee's reasons for not being able to be together got old after a while and I didn't care much to read the same we-

This was such a gorgeous and SWOOOOOOOOONY book!

From the first few pages, I was captivated and I could not put it down even for a minute.

I say it again, the entire idea of using Cirque Du Soleil as inspiration is brilliant. I have always been enchanted by the shows and the mystery about what’s going on behind the scenes has only gotten bigger.

Since I first read Krista and Becca Ritchie I have been a fan. I love how seamless and flawless their stories our told and have anxiously awaited all of their releases. They are my absolute favorites because they write my favorite type of love story, epic love. Their stories show a love that won't quit, a love that won't lessen with time, a love story that makes you believe in forever love. Their stories capture me from the beginning and from that moment I feel every moment right along with the ...more

"Some love is infinite."

Krista & Becca Ritchie are such amazing storytellers. They cracked the code to my heart. Every book I have read by them has sucked me in and made me part of the characters. The Addicted series is one of my all time favorites, but don't worry you'll fall in love with the characters from Infini as well.

I was lucky enough to be selected to read and review an ARC of Infini so a HUGE thank you to Krista and Becca Ritchie for this opportunity!

I gave my self a night to recover just so I can get my thoughts together and write a semi-coherent review. So if it any point this gets ramble-y (very high chance) I apologize but just now it’s the only way I know how to express my love and excitement over this book. (Spoiler free of course)

WOW! Seriously, that’s all I could say after finishing this book. So much wow, that I had to put all of my other reading aside to go back and read it all over again – and that hasn’t happened to me for a very long time. This book is everything that I love about Krista and Becca Ritchie’s writing – smart, funny, deeply dramatic and intense with a soul-deep love story dripping in chemistry.
