Blurb: Mild Adult themes. Recommended for mature readers.
Heather Richardson is a seventeen-year-old British girl whose life quickly becomes an emotional roller coaster when she meets Ruben Brown, a controlling twenty-four-year-old man who works for her father at Freesdon Manor. As much as Heather wants to love Ruben, the cracks in their relationship begin to show as her eighteenth birthday draws nigh.
In a surprising turn of events Heather is confronted by Frank, an intriguing man from a past that dates back to the nineteenth century. His untimely presence changes everything.
When she’s thrown back in time by an unrelenting force, Heather realizes that her life is not what it appears to be. Her future has already been written, and it seems she cannot escape her fate, a fate determined by a love lost long ago. In her struggle to find herself, Heather must chose her destiny amidst a dangerous love triangle, vengeful lovers, and passions controlled by the hands of time.
Review: Another one for the DNF pile. I just could not get into this. I felt no connection whatsoever and this girl, I just wanted to shake her. If anyone had treated me the way Ruben treated her, even before they got together, he’d be kicked to the curb. Also spending thousands of pounds on a girl he just met? Red flags everywhere.
I stopped at chapter 4, mostly because she just seemed daft. I mean, given what the audience knows, she’s never had this happen to her, yeah? But after the third time she’s seen something and the second time that people haven’t seen what she’s seen and she isn’t freaking out about it? It’s just business as usual.
I kinda skipped around a bit, wondering if it would get any better and it apparently takes until chapter 7 for her to say the relationship was happening too fast? You went on weekend away with him after the third day of knowing him. That’s committed couple stuff there. I’d say it was moving at super speed.
The cover really doesn’t leave much to be desired, I couldn’t connect with the writing and there wasn’t much emotion for me to feel.
I wouldn’t recommend this.
Thank you for reading my review.
