by Nataline Reis.
Blurb: When a shifter and a human are bound by fate, neither man knows if their connection will be enough to save not only their growing love, but their lives.
Shahin Halcón has been taught that if and when he meets his soul mate, he’ll know immediately. Always the rebel, he doesn’t believe it until the day he crosses paths with Cai, a full-human.
Plagued by unsuccessful relationships and heartache, Cai Banes’s life is quiet and unexciting. When he meets young and wild Shahin, his life is turned upside down, and he’s not sure he likes it.
But neither can deny the powerful pull that draws them together.
Old secrets and ancient myths about cross-species relationships plague their romance and threaten to put their happiness and life at risk. Will their love for each other be strong enough to survive?

My Thoughts: As soon as I saw the beautiful cover of Infinite Blue I knew I had to read it. The fact that the blurb promised an interesting read, didn’t hurt either.
My library has an amazing little app called CloudLibrary which allows you to request a book before it is published, almost like asking the library to put in a preorder 😛 I found Infinite Blue while browsing the app and have been eagerly awaiting the publication date!
Infinite Blue does not disappoint, I started the book in the morning and despite working eight hours, devoured it in a day. I found the characters really engaging and different, plus I really enjoyed the premise of the book.
Often times I find the whole shifter paranormal story line a bit done to death, but Reis captured my attention with her hawk shifter lore. With a 182 page count, at least on my tiny iPhone screen, Infinite Blue has enough twists and turns and love filled declarations to keep any reader entertained.
I’m not usually the biggest fan of ‘soul mate’ stories, however I enjoyed the way in which Shahin comes to terms with his emotions regarding Cai. While at times I did feel that Shahin tended to over react (pretty much any time Cai interacted with his ex-boyfriend) I none the less enjoyed him as a character. He was entertaining, fun, and just angsty enough for me to appreciate.
Overall, I really enjoyed the relationship between Cai and Shahin. The added elements such as the pair’s families and the mysterious sickness really rounded out the story and made it quite a compelling read.
I would recommend this book for anyone who enjoys paranormal romances and is looking for an entertaining read.
