It's always hard to review a novella. And I think had I read this first I would not have enjoyed it so much. But I didn't, I read it after the first book in the series. And I think this was why I liked it even more. The book is from Lainey's POV. But this little star is from Micah's POV and it was so great to be in his head. He's broody and loyal and loving. He has so much to give and this just shows it. I loved seeing the events that lead up to the first book. How his relationship with Amber becomes such an important part of his relationship with Lainey.
And I absolutely adore Micha's relationship with his sister, Trinity. They compliment each other so well. You can tell that they lean on each other and it's sweet and heart warming. She kind of mother's him a bit, but in a solidly loving way. And he needs it.
It helps that Stokes has such a fabulous writing style. It flows and it's fast paced and easy to read. And while she touched on romance, it was not the center of this novella. The point of this novella was Michah figuring out what he wanted and what he needed and how he could go about getting it. There are sad parts, and sweet parts, but mostly there are parts where you see the hope in Micah, where you see him beginning to understand what he needs to feel whole. And the flashbacks to when he was younger and the events that lead him to his delinquency are really great.
As a whole, I really enjoyed this novella. I would love to see more of Micah. He is such a fantastic character and not at all what he seems on the outside. This rough and tumble boy will steal your heart!

This was such a good novella. I have not read the novel that this accompanies, but I really want to now. Micah was a great character. I found his struggles easy to relate to and so heartwrenching. It's easy to blame yourself for things that you didn't cause and couldn't have controlled and this was beautifully presented here.

Micah and Trinity's relationship was so sweet. I love that they care about each other so much. So often there are messed up sibling relationships in novels, but this one was beautiful. Obviously they have problems, but they are just so great together. I'm really excited to see them in the full novel. Not sure how I'll enjoy Lainey as the main character, but I'm looking forward to reading it.

Beware spoilers ahead!

I heard about this book through GR. After finishing The Art of Lainey I decided to read Infinite Repeat so that I could get to know Micah more. I am happy to say that I enjoyed this!

The book begins with Micah noticing that Amber has come back. Micah feels odd because today is when his dad was killed. He greets Amber but continues to feel off. They spend some time together but after Micah realizes that he still feels weird he sends Amber off.

Deciding to go for a drive he rummages through his room for his car keys. Trinity comes in brandishes his keys and asks where he wanted to go. He says that he doesn't know but promises not to have a repeat of last year. When he got arrested and sent to juvie. Instead the two of them spend some time together.

After a few days Amber brings up that she and her band are going to be having a concert in Chicago. Amber asks Micah to come but Micah declines saying he can't afford the fare and he has to work. Eventually Amber has found a way to pay for the fare and asks Micah again. After some thinking Micah agrees. And he ends up going to the concert.

Upon reaching there Micah finds out that Amber is now a very different person. She lets her people dictate what she does and what she wears. She even puts up with her creepy manager who treats her like a thing. Micah realizes that there may not be a way to save their relationship.

This was a short novella. I was surprised by how much I liked it! Usually I rate novella's 3 stars but surprisingly this was a 4 star. This is written in first person all in Micah's point of view. With a few flashbacks here-and-there.

I liked getting to know the coworkers at the coffee shop, Amber, and his family. You get to see what happened between Amber and Micah and some of his interactions with his coworkers. Lainey makes a few appearances as well. Kendall and Jason come in as cameo's. You also get to read about what happened to the day Micah's father was murdered. I felt quiet bad for him and I definitely enjoyed read about the flashbacks.

Overall this was a really good novella! I recommend it to fans of The Art of Lainey and Micah fans.
