Blurb from Goodreads:

Infinity discovers a dark secret from her past that rocks everything she knows to be true.

A troubled 22-year-old superstar singer, Infinity has a bad reputation for drugs and hard partying. Now, she is on the road to a comeback with her controversial tour. But everything about doing the concert feels wrong from missing employees, to anonymous threats about ruining her career. She is dealing with a powerful corporation that is determined to kill her and everyone she loves. She is also battling for control of her life and career from a relationship that crossed the fine line between love and obsession. Infinity knows too much, even though she doesn't realize it. Secrets have been kept and these secrets are powerful enough to destroy her and everyone she loves.

Now she must put her safety and trust in the hands of sexy, tattooed and delicious Torch Channing and Boulder Vigari, hired to keep her from getting killed. Boulder wants to make her his. He won't stop until he claims her. Torch struggles with his primal need to possess her and his hatred of everything she represents.

Infinity is determined to protect her heart while dealing with the pressure of pulling off another successful tour without spiraling into another mental meltdown.

I received this book for Read it Review it from New Adult Book Club over at Goodreads which I have finally gotten around to reading it and I do wish I had had more time to read it sooner as I did really enjoy it.

I kind of like the cover as it tells us a bit about what the story is about which I really like but I also think it could have had something that would have made it stand out a bit more.

When I first started this book I couldn't get into it as it was a bit too confusing. If the first half of this book was as good as the second half of this book then this would have been a five star plus book. As well as being confusing there was also nothing interesting going on. However that all changed when it hit half way through as things started to get very interesting, although we didn't really know what was happening right until the end but the ending sure did leave me wanting more. I kind of enjoyed the romance side of the story but there seems to be two mates for Infinity so I would like to see how that will play out in the upcoming books. As for the paranormal side of the story we had vampires, shifter and Valkyries and I never knew which was the good guys as they all seemed to have a hidden agenda and I am really looking forward to find out more from all of these creatures as it seems  a war is brewing.

As for the characters there was times when I liked all of the characters but there was times that I didn't like any of them. There was a few characters that I never stopped liking which were 'Big Red' whom I can't wait to see more of in the next books (hopefully), Zoe and Diego added a bit of light relief to the story well they did do until the end when everything changed. Infinity at times seemed like a spoilt celebrity but there was other times when she showed some vulnerability which was nice to see.

Overall I really enjoyed the last half of the book which has made me very excited to read the rest of the series I just hope there's not a long wait.
