Blurb: A threat from the past could destroy the future. And the clock is ticking…

My thoughts: Confusion. That was my first thought. I didn’t read the full blurb or I did but then for some reason didn’t understand that the whole book would be in Kaleb’s perspective. I was a bit jarred at first and that scene where Kaleb meets the Tiger girl, and um, grabs her ass, was a bit fuzzy for me.

I had to get used to it and well that was also because Kaleb was drunk and it was hard following his point of view at times. Especially when unfortunately Myra would go from one scene to the next and there was no easing us into what was going on, things were just happening instantly, on the spot, no transitions going on. For instance, at the end of one chapter they’re in the middle of the street, the beginning of the next chapter they’re standing over a bed. Um, but we don’t know Kaleb is standing over a bed until after the first couple of lines of dialogue. So I’m still on the street for those lines of dialogue.

Once I got used to the quick pacing, I was really into this book. I missed not being in Em’s pov, because there wasn’t a lot of Em and Michael, and the redeeming factor was that there was a lot of Kaleb and Lily, granted hatred was there because Lily turned out to be the girl Kaleb grabbed while he was drunk but hey it worked.

What made me fall into this book and wake up was the scene in the Phone Company with Poe, Em and Kaleb. No I’m not telling you what happened but I almost jumped a foot when it happened and almost hit my head on the roof of my car. Was sad I had to put the book down to drive. (I was in park while reading.)

This is basically Kaleb’s story and if you forgot his empathic ability you will remember it now. We also learn more about Lily who works at Murphy’s Law with her grandma, and about Jack Landers and his messing with the continuum. We also get a glimpse into another time travel group, Chronos, and Myra pays some homage to Doctor Who. (thank you for that.)

It ended rather abruptly, but everything in this book was abrupt. I remember getting Hourglass at the Chapters after waiting forever, and not sure if this one is shorter, but it felt short.

Anyway, regardless of the disorientation I felt, I loved Kaleb once I could really like him, I think I fell in love with him around the same time Lily did and Myra does not disappoint on the dirty sexy scenes!

I’m looking forward to adding this to my collection next week and I think you should too! Myra has a fantastic way with works and her jokes are super funny.

    Pretty much agree with everything you said! I'm super glad you liked this one, too. I agree that it did take a little while to get used to Kaleb's POV because it was so different. I, too, missed Em's POV at times but that diminished as I absolutely fell DEEPER in love with Kaleb. I have to wonder if the next book will be back to Em's POV or from someone else – Michael perhaps.
