Infini (Aerial Ethereal) by Krista & Becca Richie Release Day Blitz: Sarah's 2¢, Excerpt, & Giveaway!

“Don’t have a best friend that’s a girl” — this was the advice from my older cousin. I didn’t take it. Because he followed with, “friends don’t f*ck friends. And you’ll want to f*ck her.”

It was terrible advice.

My cousin should’ve told me that being best friends with Baylee Wright — since she was twelve — would be the best and worst decision of my life.

He should have told me to protect her from what was coming.

He should have told me that when a darkness crawled towards us, there’d be no safety net.

Now I’ve signed back on to the same Vegas acrobatic show as Baylee, working together for the first time in years. And she tells me that she’s having trouble in a certain “area” of her life — because of our past.

“You can help me fix it,” she says.

And then she hands me a list.

Infini is the second book in Krista & Becca Ritchie's Aerial Ethereal series.  It reads well as a standalone, but trust me when I say you want to start from the beginning with Amour Amour.  The Ritchie sisters write ensemble casts like no other authors.  Their side characters have just as big an impact as the main characters and make for a truly epic email.

"I f$%^&*( love her--and that means nothing to everyone but me."

Luka Kotova is the middle brother of the Kotova family.  Fourth generation aerialists and circus performers, he's the perfect big brother to Timo and Katya.  Luka is a silent warrior.  He's dealing with his own personal issues while trying to fight the love in Baylee Wright that he can't deny.

"There's only danger at the end of his name.  At the end of us."

Baylee is one of four people in Infini's original cast.  She's got deep family ties to the show and will stop at nothing to make sure it's always her best performance.  Her feelings for Luka are undeniable and that of nothing else she's ever felt.  

"Love is strange and weird and unpredictable--and that's probably why I'm drawn to it."

Krista and Becca take forbidden romance to a whole new level with Infini.  It's not your typical student/teacher, coach/athlete or even age gap.  The fate of other lives relies on them not being a couple but their attraction and love is so beautiful, it was hard not to cry when going through their story.  It's so emotional and so  heartbreaking that you can't help but root for their love to prevail.

As I said in the first paragraph, The Ritchie sisters write ensemble-style.  In Luka and Baylee's story, we get a lot more of Nikolai and Thora's relationship as well as the opening of new stories for (hopefully) Timo (Luka's younger brother) and John. Katya (Luka's younger sister) and maybe even Baylee's brother Brenden.  You can't help but become part of the story when reading Krista and Becca's words.  Their writing is so mature and true and SMART!  You'd think they were circus performers themselves.  Great job, Girls!  Another stellar read!

When I was eleven, he told me that fucking anyone who works for AE is like swimming in a “polluted pussy ocean”—his ineloquent way of saying: extremely dangerous. And in some cases for our careers, fatal. 
I didn’t listen to his advice. 
I usually don’t. 
I straighten off the door frame. “Speaking of that other roommate…” I can’t even say her name. I think of B. Wright and all of my muscles tense.

Picture Krista & Becca Ritchie are New York Times and USA Today bestselling authors and identical twins—one a science nerd, the other a comic book geek—but with their shared passion for writing, they combined their mental powers as kids and have never stopped telling stories. Now in their early twenties, they write about other twenty-somethings navigating through life, college, and romance.

They love superheroes, flawed characters, and soul mate love. They are the New Adult authors of the Addicted series and Calloway Sisters spin-off series, and you can find them on almost every social media, frolicking around like wannabe unicorns.
