This is the third Meghan O'Brien novel I've purchased from Audible; and the weakest. There are far too many long poignant declarations of love. Both of the protagonists prattle on these endless declarations of self deprecation; making statements that proclaim "I'm not worthy; I'm not worthy. Then there the long detailed play-by-play renditions of rather Vanilla sexual encounters that do little to move the story forward. So I hated it right?
Wait (you just checked my rating) how is I gave this book I hated 4 out of 5 stars? Because Meghan O'Brien did an absolutely great job of creating two likable yet human leading ladies that you have no trouble getting behind and pulling for. The brief snatches of back-story the author supplies are an excellent for providing context into the characters. Their interactions with friends and family likewise offer insight into who Mel and Regan are and how it influences the people they became. The relationship between Regan and her straight friend Adam is a particularly good one.
So though there are plenty of flaws in this narrative; it is still a good story with plenty of sympathetic likable characters. Worth the credit.

What made the experience of listening to Infinite Loop the most enjoyable?
Not only is it eloquently written, but the story is beautiful. Too often, books with lesbian protagonists are clique, tragic, or heartbreaking: "Infinite Loop" shatters this notion. It is cheesy at times, but I enjoyed every moment. It's a modern love story you don't want to miss.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Infinite Loop?
The characterization is remarkable, and the sex is epic.
Any additional comments?
I am officially giving this book to anyone who asks me how two women can fall in love.. or the all to often question, how two women can have sex.

Good novel and well written. Fun. Not always a page turner though. Narrator always fine.

And I am addicted to audio books.
There is better to choose from, much better. Try Sarah Waters or Kristen Zimmer....
