Review by: Shannon Patel on June 23, 2011 :
Wow, what a difference between this book and the Sinners' books!!

This is a quick read, but if you like a little bit of time travel and a whole lot of a hot guy trying to convince the love of his life to fall back in love with him, than this is for you!

To save the woman he loves, Reece travels through time to find Laura Kensington. When he finds her, he uses an ancient Egyptian amulet to travel through time, avoiding the menacing Carl, assuming the identities of other people in whatever time period they end up.

Reece Jericho, treasure hunter, has spent the past 8 months finding the one treasure he can't live without....Lara Kensington. Reece, for having a bad boy image (or so Lara says) wears his heart on his sleeve. You never doubt, through the entire story, just how much he loves Lara or what lengths he would go through to make sure they are never separated again.

Lara doesn't know what to make of Reece when she finds him in her museum (of which she's the curator) after hours, but she finds him incredibly attractive. She doesn't take kindly to Reece telling her what to do, but according to him, she never has. As much as she doesn't like it, she finds herself drawn to Reece. What she fights with are her rapidly changing feelings for him, wondering if these are the feelings of the person she is currently possessing or truly what she feels for Reese.

In the end, Reece fights for his woman (potentially to the death) and that forces Lara to acknowledge her true feelings for Reece. As the book ends, they are leaping to another time/place and their next adventure. Will Carl find them? What secrets does Reece have in his past? Those are all questions that will lead us to the next book.

Review by: Cindy Marchant on June 10, 2011 : (no rating)
I am such a fan of Olivia Cunning's Sinners series and was thrilled to hear she has created another. I found Love on Borrowed Time to be sexy, funny and oh so HOT! Olivia's writing is crisp with a very sharp wit. This book had me laughing out loud many times! The only complaint I have is that I wish it had been longer but I'm hoping for longer installments in the future!

I have read this author's other series, Sinners, and loved it. I was expecting somewhat of the same sort of story, but this book was really a surprise for me. So many possibilities for the main characters in the future. I am really looking forward to the next installment of the Reece/Lara love story.

I love the idea of the time travel, the integrating in other's lives. The story progresses fast, but it fits and works out well. The times they traveled to were fun to read about, very spot on with the imagery. I would say 4 out of 5 stars for this book.
