Bonnie Rae Shelby is a superstar. She's rich. She's beautiful. She's impossibly famous. And Bonnie Rae Shelby wants to die.
Finn Clyde is a nobody. He's broken. He's brilliant. He's impossibly cynical. And all he wants is a chance at life.
One girl. One boy. An act of compassion. A bizarre set of circumstances. And a choice - turn your head and walk away, or reach out your hand and risk it all?
With that choice the clock starts ticking on a man with a past and a girl who can't face the future. With the world against them, two very different people take a journey that will not only change their lives but may cost them their lives as well.

Amy Harmon is truly an amazing story teller and this time she tells a story of loss, compassion, love and letting go. The story's got heart and even though the plot is simple I couldn't help but feeling mesmerised by the lyrical quality of her words and couldn't help but caring about the characters in the story.
The narration is absolutely superb. Tavia Gilbert does more than what she normally does - here she sings, and this she does so beautifully! The already heart-breakingly beautiful story is enhanced by her performance as a narrator. So yes, I'd highly recommend the audio book.
"A COMPLEX, COMPELLING & BEAUTIFUL LOVE STORY"
On the surface Bonnie had everything - wealth, fame, beauty, a great voice and success but underneath it all she was broken, torn, devastated and alone. She had had enough and was about to end it all when out of the mist on top of a bridge came her salvation..... Clyde. He was handsome, a brilliant mathematician and a tattooed ex con whose story was just as sad and just as heartbreaking as Bonnie's and when he reached out to save her he unknowingly changed the course of both their destinies.
He was going on a road trip to Las Vegas for a job and Bonnie talked him into taking her with him and slowly they got to know each other, their secrets, their fears and their dreams and they both had a similar tragedy which haunted them. But Bonnie's Manager had put a kidnapping spin on Bonnie's disappearance which made their journey fraught with tension, drama and danger and, as the news story got twisted with rumours and lies, Bonnie and Clyde's journey became eerily similar to the story of the long dead outlaws Bonnie and Clyde. However, instead of doing harm wherever they went, they met people in desperate need of help and so they veered off their journey willing to give aid or assistance no matter the cost to themselves.
As the hours and adventure together grew so did their attraction, their self discovery, their closeness and their eventually beautiful love story blossomed but, like the infamous Bonnie and Clyde, they were headed for trouble but they raced against it and finally thought they'd won but lies, deceit, greed and manipulation tore the lovers apart in a brutal and humiliating way. Finally only faith in each other's love would give them the HEA ending they both deserved.
What a captivating love story this is as two loveable troubled characters found each other, held on, weathered the storm and eventually reaped the rewards. Tender, touching, poignant, heartbreaking and magical with poetic romantic words and brief non descriptive words of lovemaking.
Dual POV's. However, it was Tavia Gilbert's wonderful narration (and singing) that brought the whole story to life so you felt the despair, the joy, the fear, the happiness, the sincerity and the love that these two characters went through as the miles grew, the scenery changed and two half souls became one.
Worth a credit? If you're a romance lover you won't want to miss this breathtaking story that was definitely worth a credit.
A very sweet love story of two people who have each suffered. They come together and each learn to trust and love again. No hot sex scenes, just a lot of growth, and sharing, and love.
"This is a fantastic narration of a fantastic book!"
Yes I would! I got this as a recommended read in my email from a member I follow. It sounded sooo good and the reviewer highly recommended it. As do I. This is one of those stories that may not have been so memorable, but via audio book the narration pushes it that little extra mile to make it well worth your time!
The narrator had these just perfect scenes where she actually sings the lyrics to the songs, it does something to your heart where your practically riveted to your headphones. It is something you just have to experience. It makes the story. Even if the lyrics are a little ridiculous at times, the emotions tied into the songs the narrator puts in makes them magical.
The title pretty much says it all perfectly. This would actually be a pretty cool movie. It is real and gritty at times, but still has that whimsical romantic feeling throughout. It's characters and situations feel like real life. Like maybe it could somehow actually happen to you. Although it would be the weirdest, worst, and at the same time best week of your life. My only complaint is it was over too soon. I feel like the end was a very tiny bit rushed. And left me wanting a little more meat on the bones, so to speak. But still very much worth the read!
Like I said the narrator was just amazing. A Boston accent seems to me to possibly be the hardest accent to copy for a non-bostoner. She did a fairly decent job of it though IMHO. But I had the hardest time picturing what Fin looks like in my head. It wasn't till the end of the book we get that he looks like Thor. Well I know who Thor looks like! At which point I was a very happy girl. I kinda wished I knew that from point A, but now both you and I both know. So go listen and drool away at the awesomeness of Infinity!!!
"3 1/2 STARS!"
I am really enjoying Amy Harmon's books. And Tavia Gilbert is an excellent narrator as well.
"Love Amy Harmon"
Another great book. The audible just brought the story to life. Infinity plus one should be a movie. Love the modern day Bonnie and Clyde.
"Endearing love story well performed"
Voice acting was great. Each character distinct.
Story was endearing. The relationship between two broken characters is full of healing and hope.
The characters and plot were believable. I would like to hear more from this author. Accents were genuine.
"This book is not what I expected. This is my 1st"
This is not what I expected. This is my 1st one... may the next one will be better. I have heard of other audio books. I'll give them a try...
"Usual brilliance from Amy Harmon"
As usual I love the synchronicity of her stories, so well executed and researched I loved how this tied in with Bonny and Clyde's story; she involves the unexplained with such elegance. As characters go I loved the hobo William G.o.D.
