Hale Wilder, aka the Anaconda of Wall Street, spent his childhood fighting to be the best to win his father’s love. He was the best student and the best athlete, who grew into a successful businessman and took the finance world by storm. Want to retire before you’re forty-five? He’s got you. Need your millions to be billions? He’s your man.
Young, rich, and powerful, Hale was unstoppable, until a company scandal destroys his reputation and threatens to bring down everything he’s bled for.
Becca Shields is the kickass public relations goddess spinning scandals to gold and launching has-beens into superstardom. She never expected to see Hale again—not following the humiliating night when her family caught them on the beach, barely clothed.
When Becca discovers Hale is in trouble, she can’t turn her back on the boy who was once her world and the man she never forgot.
Hale never thought he’d have another shot at greatness or with Becca. Now that he has both, he won’t let either go without a fight.
I’ve enjoyed this Carolina Beach series set in the state where I live. I don’t normally pay attention to covers but these are gorgeous. The titles make it clear; this group of friends have an endless connection and support for each other. They’ve known each other since high school or longer. Their backgrounds are different but they grew up in a privileged area of wealth. It makes sense it is the kind of love they would find.
Infinite has the first couple to both be members of the group. Both Hale and Becca come from estranged family situations, and fought their way to wealth and success. Nothing about their success was easy. Each presents a beautiful, perfect picture to the world, as well as mostly to their friends, no matter the truth inside. They had an incident and separated, not seeing each other, except in passing, in about 10 years.
Hale’s world crashes down. Of course, all of them are there to support him, including Becca. Slowly, they begin to know the real person and grow personally as their relationship changes. The amount of wealth still makes it rather unrealistic, but the personal development makes it an emotional, great read. Rich or poor, or anything else, people still want to find their place, their people and be loved. The level of support, love, and the steadfast commitment to Hale is fierce and amazing.
I enjoyed the support and close relationships. There were also steamy scenes and some real laughs. Somehow, I have the impression this was the last book, but what about Mason, Sean and Neesa? I could read more in this close-knit family of people.
