Review: Infinite Us by Eden Butler


Note: This ARC was provided by the author via Enticing Journey Book Promotions in exchange for an honest review.

There are books that are written well, with enchanting words and a story that's unique, that somehow simply don't connect with a reader. That's what happened with Infinite Us. This was only my second Eden Butler read--the first one being Crimson Cove and I do have both her Thin Love and Seeking Serenity series on my Kobo app--and after being hooked by the accompanying blurb for it, I was prepared for a love story that pushed past the bounds of time and dimension. I did, indeed, get that, and for the first several chapters, my interest remained at a high. The main purpose, it seemed, was to prove that love--the true kind--is timeless, and that somewhere and somehow, it'll find a way. Maybe it's too whimsical a notion and I may be a cynical romance reader, but I do want to believe.

Nash Nation and Willow O'Bryant piqued my curiosity, but I never felt like I truly got to know them on that kind of deeper level that would have made me want to absolutely invest in them emotionally. There was a disconnect and when I can't connect with at least one of the main characters, then my overall reading experience is, indeed hampered. I'm not saying this was a terrible book. Like I mentioned earlier, this was well written and I appreciate Eden Butler's desire to share with her readers a love story that was more than the norm. But with me being the kind of reader that I am, where I need to connect with the characters and have the story stir deeper emotions rather than pull a reaction or two, Infinite Us just didn't click with me the way I hoped it would. It gets three stars. ♥
