“Is that something people lie about around here?” His blue jeans were worn, pulled over battered black combat boots. The sole of the left one was peeling away from the shoe. Did he think he could slack because Dad wasn't here? That no one would see him and report back? Even if they had permission to be in civies, there were strict standards. While off duty, a soldier had to maintain a neat, well-groomed appearance. This was more an outfit worthy of a high school rebel, which, honestly, this guy didn't look much older than. The one in the back pushed him aside and came forward. Black hair fell just below his ears and had a slight wave to it. It was fuller than normally allowed, not even close to regulation. On some of our previous bases, hair standards weren't strictly enforced. But at Hannity, they were sticklers. High and tight. Those were the rules. Like the other guy, he had on a leather jacket with black fatigue pants tucked into slightly worn combat boots. Unlike the first, though, this one had seen some trouble in his day. There was a thin scar on the left side of his face. It went from just above his eyebrow, down across his eye and to the tip of his chin. My pulse spiked a little as his gaze raked over me. Down and up, then up and down, lips parting slightly. I didn't go for greenies, but this one sent the butterflies in my stomach tripping crazy. It was the scar. It added character to his angular face, suggesting that maybe there was more than meets the eye. Or possibly it was the way he was looking at me. With a spark of hunger and something close to wonder in his expression. I'd never had anyone look at me that way. Like I was something mythical and rare. A creature that shouldn't exist. I twisted, shifting so that the door obscured just a little more of me from his view. He hesitated, focus still trained on me, and for a moment I thought he might poke me to be sure I was real. Clearing his throat, he finally said, “I'm Private First Class Cade Granger, and this is…” He paused to glance over his shoulder. “Recruit Noah Emeal.”
“A private and a fuzzy Really?” I wasn't sure if I should be pleased or insulted. I mean, why bother sending supervision at all if you were going to scrape the bottom of the barrel?
“I promise you'll be safe with us, Miss Anderson.” Miss Anderson. Huh. Maybe there wasn't more to this guy. He sounded just like the rest of them. Formal and uptight.
“That right? So you're here to save me from myself?” Because, really, that was the problem, right? I couldn't be trusted to keep myself out of trouble.
“I'm not sure I understand.” He tilted his head to the left, confused, but didn’t take his eyes off me. In fact, if anything, his gaze grew more intense. It was like he and I were the only ones in the room. In the world…
“I'd really appreciate it if you could stop staring.” I snapped. “I can't tell if you're mentally trying to strip me, or contemplating which way to cook my skin for Sunday dinner. Either way, it’s creeping me the hell out.”
To be honest, the main reason I chose to read this book is because of Jus. I have promoted several of her other books and have always wanted to read them so the stars finally aligned and viola! Here we are. I find her to be an exciting young author with a lot to say and her books always garner plenty of attention. With INFINITY being the beginning of a new series, I’m sure this one will be the same.
The basic storyline revolves around Kori and the fact that her Dad works for a super sekrit (yes, I know I spelled that wrong…it’s a joke folks) department of their military call the Infinity Division, where they can jump interdimensionally. As we learned from The Vampire Diaries, it really plays havoc on your life when you have an evil doppelgänger somewhere in the cosmos near you. And while talking about things in multiple dimensions and other technical jargon can become mind-blowing, Infinity never did. It helped that Kori was a fantastically funny character with smart mouth comments that were usually spot on and helped her stand up for herself. Totally my kind of character!!
While I find that SciFi books can become a bit tedious, INFINTY never did. I actually sat down and read it cover to cover in just about 5 hours flat without having any intention of doing so. Seriously!! So be prepared! I wouldn’t have done that without the kickbutt storyline Jus dreamed up in that magical mind of hers. This story intermingled all of the above with a tale of finding love, losing it and the lengths you will go to find justice. Just so amazing!! Thank heavens it’s a series!! So when it comes out tomorrow, get yourself a hot-off-the-presses copy and get to reading. I just know you’ll love it just like me!!
***I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book. I received it in exchange for my honest review and all opinions are my own. ***
