Cruel? Torturous? How else could I explain falling in love with Leo Williams.
The guy I thought I knew, tore me to shreds, and left nothing but an empty soul behind.
Just when it’s finally safe to breathe without a thought of him,
Just when my life no longer revolves around him,
He comes storming back into it like a hurricane,
Tearing down every wall I’d built.
But this time

A debut novel by Jo-Anne Joseph brings a story of seemingly unlikely it proves for Leah & Leo not to have a good timing of their love flourishing in fine pace for one another...

Firstly, they are both from different sides of tracks, so to speak, Leo cominf from.a dysfunctional family makes him sort of a recluse and a broody, dark, apprehensive type and Leah is this, bright, vivid somewhat naive and immature young girl with feelings yet to acknowledge and discovere

INFINITY is a wonderful debut about second chances, loyalty, heartbreak, loss and hope. Ms. Joseph is a new author to me and I didn’t know what to expect. The plot was engaging. The characters, at times, were so stubborn I wanted shake them. There were several twists and turns that surprised me and it’s rare for me to be surprised. I found myself wide-eyed with shock at some of the turn of events. My jaw was practically on the floor when secrets were revealed. Later on, I was in tears, caring fo ...more

I’d known him my whole life, but I never expected to fall in love with him.
I did. Deeply and irrevocably.
It was both the worst and best decision of my life.
He gave me no choice, but to walk away.
I spent my life since justifying it with being immature.
But I knew it was all a lie
When he re-entered my life by chance I thought fate was playing a cruel joke.
He saved me.
He destroyed me.
But he unknowingly revived me.

This is an ARC review of the book so anything I may cover in this review could have changed before release.

First things first. I am in tears. Jo-Anne Joseph has hit me in the feels.

At first I struggled to get through the book (which is why it took me so long) because teenage Leah and I didn't connect. She didn't seem like a real teenager to me and she was a bit too angsty. A teen can be mentally mature beyond their years, but they are still a teenager and will still act like one. Puberty man. P

Very Emotional story.  Leah & Leo are not your normal best friend's little sister union.  This is a story of how a first love can stand the tests of time, even through distance and space.  There is so much I wish I could say, but it'll give the story away.

So I'll just say this...I sat for four and a half hours nonstop reading this heart wrenching story.  As sleepy as I was, I could not stop reading.  There are some books where you can stop and come back to later and this, for me, is not one of t

This book is so beautifully written. The story between Leah and Leo is amazing. At first I did not like Leah. Leo was her saviour but she never wanted to see it. So many times I wanted to smack her upside her head. Leo is a tortured soul. You can only hear the negative so many times before you believe it. But everything always works out how it was supposed to. This is not a traditional HEA. But Jo-Anne is such a talented writer that she brought it all together the way it was supposed to be. Do n ...more

I love this book! It is wonderfully written and absolutely beautiful! Full of literary fiction, it brings a new twist to the world of romance that this book boasts! It is a must read, about hope and redemption!
You have Leah who has loved her brother’s best friend since before she understood those feelings. Then there is Leo, the best friend who practically lived with Leah and her family.
Fast forward many years, after a large misunderstanding and Leah is now married to her high school boyfriend.

The debut novel "Infinity" had all the right elements I was looking for in a romance story; unexpected love, anger, sexual tension, young love, mature love, devastation... I think you get the picture!!! It takes you on a beautiful journey from the first spark to the brilliant flames and finally to the bold hot coals that love develops into. I believe every love story can teach us something of value, and despite this novel making you feel anxious to not take love for granted, it teaches you that ...more

I was spellbound by this story. This will not be your typical HEA but you will love it still. It takes you on a journey that was so beautifully written that you cannot put the book down. The chemistry between the main characters is explosive and heart melting. I wanted to go right into the pages and be in the story to see it for myself. Jo-Anne Joseph will be an author to watch because if her next books are this amazing she will be a bestseller before she knows it. Romantically beautiful, enchan ...more

This book caught me up and lead me through such a gamut of emotions that, come the end, I had to sit quietly and absorb what I had read. The relationship between Leah and Leo is intense and has suffered set backs and some turmoil. The descriptions of the emotions suffered by them are so intense that my heart was hammering at times. In this sense, this book has it all. Love, angst, deep sorrow, hope are just some.
As a debut novel this is such a good one. Even though Jo-Anne wrung out my heart, I

Leo and Leah!! This book is about first love and loss. We have all been there! The story of Leo, who rose above his circumstances to be the best man he could be and Leah, whose one true love was Leo! Together they were unstoppable and could rule the world, apart they just existed !
This is a debut book by this author and let me say she is off to an amazing start. I laughed and cried and threw things against the wall long after the book was done ! I cannot wait for her next book !

Joanne Joseph’s debut contemporary romance novel ‘Infinity’ was, for me, an emotional rollercoaster. A ‘ride’ which I highly recommend to those that enjoy stories filled with drama, suspense and passion.

The story was engaging and I found myself drawn into Leah and Leo’s world, hoping that they would be blessed with their happily ever after.

This is a story of love, stubbornness, obstacles and destiny.

You will laugh, you will cry and you will be left with a feeling of gratefulness for every precio
I loved the story line and I do want to see where these characters continue in the next book. I did feel like parts where rushed or skipped over but it was a great read.

Infinity: boundless, endless, eternal, never ending, limitless, and vastness. These are all words used to describe the word infinity. When we think of infinity it sounds all good but like every coin there are two sides. Infinite love, all encompassing, love with all it’s ups, also has downs.
Infinite love is love you really have no control over because it is beyond reason.
This story is about that type of love, in all variations This book takes you on an emotional roller coaster. It takes you up

This is a very heartfelt story about young love, lost love and a second chance love. Can you know at a very young age that you have met your one and only? Well, Leah Jones thought she would always have a thing for her brother best friend, but he was older than her and never took any notice of the little girl she way.
Leo did not have a great family life but what he did have was is great best friend’s family. Leo returns to town to start a new job and a new life but waiting for his house to be rea

Except his eyes, they draw her in, and the more she spends time with him, the more she wants to be with him. But cruel fate loves to play her hand, and they are ...more

Leo is best friends with Kevin, Leah's brother. While he has had a pretty rough existence, he has always had his friends' family to rely on. Now he is coming to stay with them while he fixes his home up enough to move in.

Leah has been kind of stalker-like throughout their childhood. She has always been attracted to his dimples from a distance. Now he will be living in her home - meaning up close and personal. Is this a sign, or a sentence?

While this feels to some extent like a coming of age nove

If it was possible to give a book more than five stars, this would be the book. From the very beginning I was hooked. This is a story about two people, Leah & Leo. They met when teenagers. There was always a spark between them but one day that spark was put out and they both went on with their lives, separately. Years later they meet up again and that spark is still there, but is it too late? Has too much time passed? You will need to read this book to find out. I laughed and cried throughout th ...more

This is a well written beautifully touching love story. It has many uncanny resemblance to my own life which made if difficult to read as well as emotional.

What a beautiful touching romance book that shows what destiny really means because a second chance or more at love is what dreams are made of. I highly recommend this book. I volunteered to read a copy of this book.
