The Delight

There could not have been a better story to cap off the Carolina Beach series. I thought I loved the first book best, but Hale and Becca swept that one into the second place by bringing out all my feels. I expected, braced for it, and still found this pair touching and fun. They always say ‘the best for last’ for a reason. Infinite is that reason.

Review

Infinite is the third book in the Carolina Beach series. It would work as a standalone, but I found it worked all the better when I encountered the characters in the earlier books and then got their own story in this one.

So, yes, Hale and Becca were introduced earlier. They were a case of bad timing earlier when they tried and failed to be together. Now, they’ve got a new chance when Hale got into trouble and needed his friends. Loved how this group came running and circled the wagons for him. I keep thinking this was the end book, but incidentally, I would love to see all the friends get their stories. Becca doesn’t let the past stand in her way of coming to a friend’s side when he needed her. I thought this was really big of her particularly when her own terrible past and family stuff came out. They were quite the pair. Their careers were successes, but their private lives were painful. I was so thrilled that they were giving it a second chance and had each other.

They were funny (I laughed so hard at times particularly when they were snarking at each other), sweet, hurting, and oh, let’s not forget hot together. They had so much to work through in their personal lives and issues from their horrid families (I’ve seen less dysfunctional stuff on a Sally Jesse Rafael show), but I loved seeing them trying to get past that stuff and trying to be together. I was fully engaged with this pair and lost myself in their story so that it was over before I even realized it.

All in all, I loved rooting for this pair and immersing in their romance and the broader circle of friends that make up this series. I can definitely recommend the book/series to those who want all the feels and the extra sparkle on their contemporary romances.

My thanks to the author’s assitant for the opportunity to read the book in exchange for an honest review.

About Cecy Robson

Cecy (pronounced Sessy) Robson is the new adult and contemporary romance author of the Shattered Past series, the O’Brien Family novels, and the Carolina Beach series, as well as the award-winning author of the Weird Girls urban fantasy romance series. A 2016 double nominated RITA® finalist for Once Pure and Once Kissed, Cecy is a recovering Jersey girl living in the South who enjoys carbs way too much, and exercise way too little. Gifted and cursed with an overactive imagination, you can typically find her on her laptop silencing the yappy characters in her head by telling their stories.

The following two tabs change content below.
I was born and raised near Sacramento, CA. I have read since I was four years old and developed tastes that run the gamut of literature. I went away to college and have a degree in education, a certificate in family history research, and a certificate in social work. I worked for a non-profit agency with low income families for 20 years which included being responsible for the children’s library and promoting/teaching adult literacy. I have lived in Southeast Michigan for the last 18 years and I am currently a book addicted homemaker with a cat and husband who keep me grounded. Recently, I made it a challenge to review each book that I have read as a favor to author friends who said reviews are important. I have done reviews for Good Reads, Amazon, eBay, and Smashwords, but mostly at Goodreads and Amazon.

This series was a really nice one and I really enjoyed this one as well

I’m still more partial to the O’Brien series, but this one was pretty good, too. 🙂

I’ve only read one of her books but this sounds like a good story. So glad to hear you liked it.

Sophia Rose

Ah, thanks, Mary! Hope you get to read more of her stuff. I think you’d love some of her vampires in her Weird Sisters series. 🙂

This really sounds like my kind of story, Sophia! I don’t think I’ve read Cecy Robson before (or maybe one book a long time ago…)
Great review!

Oh cool! Glad to point you to it, Lexxie. Her romances are so swoony. 🙂

I really enjoyed this one. I thought the characters were especially well done. The characters really had horrible family issues. Poor Becca never really got relief, at least Hale did. I love the song you included at the end. Awesome. Anne – Books of My Heart

It was fun. Oh man, yes, her family was something else.

Thanks, its one I like, too.

I am going to have to read this series! This sounds fantastic and I love that the story made you laugh. I am going to have to add this one to the wish list 🙂

Sophia Rose

She does it to me every time. Make sure you get the first two. Sometimes the first book is free or on sale so watch for that. 🙂

Oh, this sounds like a good one. I love some good snark, and I like the thought of both characters having to overcome their pasts.

Great review!

Sophia Rose

It was great fun, Angie. There were a couple times that I thought I should write that stuff down to save so I could unleash it myself now and then. Haha!
Oh yes, her past and her present family in particular were rather squirrelly.

I’m glad you could enjoy this book so much. It sounds quite emotional

Sophia Rose

Thanks, Stephanie! I did have a great time with it. It was emotional, but balanced with light and fun, spicy, and affectionate, too.

Love a good snark! I still need to try her books out with all of yall loving them so much. Ah!

Sophia Rose

I cracked up the way she was ragging on him and then he gave her some back a few times. It wasn’t mean or cruel just that antagonism/sexual tension stuff.

Oh, let me recommend. Go for the O’Briens series (read Shattered Past from the original series that leads into the O’Briens first). Totally unrelated, but that is my favorite series of all her books. Love that family. 🙂

It’s fun when you have a series like that and already have a favorite book and then a later book replaces that. This sounds like a great read and a good ending to the series. I kinda like that contradiction when characters do really well in one aspect and less in another, like here with their careers being a success, but their private lives not. And second chance romances can be so much fun! And it’s great to see a couple overcoming everything in their way. Great review!

Sophia Rose

Oh yes, those are all the good things about this one. It really is fun to see them working hard to overcome and doing it together. 🙂
