I received this galley in exchange for an honest review.
Calling Anna and Bennett’s romance long distance is an understatement: she’s from 1995
Chicagoand he’s a time traveler from 2012 San Francisco. The two of them never should have met, but they did. They fell in love, even though they knew they shouldn't. And they found a way to stay together, against all odds.
It’s not a perfect arrangement, though, with Bennett unable to stay in the past for more than brief visits, skipping out on big chunks of his present in order to be with Anna in hers. They each are confident that they’ll find a way to make things work...until Bennett witnesses a single event he never should have seen (and certainly never expected to). Will the decisions he makes from that point on cement a future he doesn't want?
Told from Bennett’s point of view, Time After Time will satisfy readers looking for a fresh, exciting, and beautifully-written love story, both those who are eager to find out what’s next for Time Between Us' Anna and Bennett and those discovering their story for the first time.
I loved last years Time Between Us. I loved it so much that I even chased down the author in
Austin to tell her how
much I loved it! I was so excited to snag a copy of Time After Time from netgalley and it was just as good as the first
What I hate most about series is that I am always confused when I read the second or third books. Its been so long since I read the book before it that I forget everything. Tamara Ireland Stone did a wonderful job weaving in the facts from the first book without giving us information overload. I was able to read Time After Time with ease. The writing is beautiful and Stone makes you feel so much for her characters. Every word is written with the utmost care and thoughtfulness.
Bennett and Anna take long distance relationships to a whole new level. She lives in 1995 and he lives in the present day. They can only see each other after he lies to everyone he loves and goes to visit her. But the time traveling is starting to get to him physically and he's starting to think that this relationship isn't going to work out. All you want is for Anna and Bennett to get through the tough time and to stay together, but that whole, "we live in different times" makes it difficult!
The ending was so sweet and I am excited to see if there is going to be a third book!
