A new adult story of Betrayal. Sex. Addiction. Love. And Power...

Mason's diabolical plan had actually worked. 

In a matter of minutes he had kidnapped me, stripping me of, family, and freedom. It was humbling, depressing, and damn infuriating but I refuse to go down without a fight. I refuse to be defeated. 

Boulder will find me. I didn't know how, but I felt it deep in my soul. 

Boulder...the one man that made my body quake with just one look. It was madness. There was so much I didn't know about him. For that matter, there was so much that he didn't know about me…like the evil darkness lurking inside me, waiting to be unleashed. 

Could he accept me without judging? 

That's where most men failed. Accepting the real me. But after years of hardening my heart, and sealing it behind a steel cage, I was ready to give myself to him freely. Knowing, that he planned to take everything I offered with both hands, until all I thought of...and wanted...was him…

Infinity Unleashed is the second book in the Valkyries: Soaring Raven series. If you read my review of the first book, Infinity, then you know I wasn't sold on it. Which means I wasn't excited to continue my reading. I must admit that Infinity Unleashed was much better than the first. Although, I still wouldn't consider myself a fan.

It's pretty action packed from page one. Infinity has been kidnapped by Mason and taken to the tiger-shifter compound. Her memories have been wiped due to being sedated and drugged. She's told that her friends and family are dead. She is to become Mason's mate and rule the tiger-shifter community. Or something, it's all quite confusing.

Boulder is determined to find Infinity. She is his true mate and he will do everything in his power to bring her home safely. I want to like Boulder, I really do. But he is so cave man. My woman. My mate. I protect you. You are mine. I am yours. Blah, blah, blah. The only sexual scene in the whole book is during Boulder and Infinity's mating claiming thing. I swear if I read the words, "I am yours and You are mine" one more time, I was gonna barf. I got it the first time it was said, you don't have to keep reminding me.

The cussing was right on par with the first book. Excessive. I reached the point where in my head, I completely skipped the bad words and the story sounds so much better! So much cussing is not sexy, it's trashy. I think this was the one thing that bothered me the most with Infinity and Infinity Unleashed.

Overall, the story line is fantastic. I really do love it! It's just not fun to read about when it's in such poor taste. I honestly don't think I will be continuing with this series. I still wouldn't recommend these but I also wouldn't say don't read them either. Try them out for yourself! Just because it didn't float my boat, doesn't mean it won't float yours.
