Mari is excited to get to college and start a new life. On her first day there, she has a strange experience while reading under a tree when a sleeping guy literally falls into her lap. He is gorgeous and Mari finds herself wanting to know more about him...that is until later that day she hears him talking to his friends about her and decides she doesn't want to have anything to do with another player.
But Seth is persistent and the more Mari tries to avoid him, the more he is around. After she touches a stone he carries around, she feels an unusual connection to him whenever he is near and starts to want to believe that his intentions with her are true.
When the truth comes outs and Mari knows their time together is limited she is torn between enjoying every moment and trying to find a way to make things permanent for them.
This book was amazing! A great story about time travel that is told in a way that it is not too crazy out there. Mari and Seth are great characters and the author develops them in a way that you are rooting for them throughout. There is also a great supporting cast in Ty, Dee and Sim which made this a great read. The build to the past Seth is hiding is a little slow in parts but once you there, it is off and running. From about the 50% mark this was unputdownable. I laughed, I cried and I am dying to see what happens next!!
Quick hook or slow starter? 4 (It was a little slow to hook me but once it did I couldn't stop reading)
Character development: 5
Level of Romance between characters: 4.5
Passion/Heat level: 3 (this is more YA than NA...no sex and only a few kisses)
Angst/Heartbreak: 5 (not angsty but parts of it are heartbreaking...I was literally in tears)
Cliffhanger?: Huge, and even more so if you read the first chapter of the next book which is included at the end.
Overall, I loved it and would have given it 5 stars if not for the huge way you are left hanging at the end. I hate cliffhangers and can't give books 5 when they leave me hanging like this!! Can't wait for the next book to come out and see what happens next!!
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
