RATING: 5 stars

REVIEW: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Wow, this book was amazing! Very rarely do I give five stars to a book, but this book is so worthy of them, every single one of them.
The book picks up where The first left off, sort of. Lara has been captured, and is now a prisoner of the Rewind Agency. She is a prisoner in her own mind, as well, as they have her plugged into a virtual reality where she can't tell what is real and what isn't. Escape is almost impossible, but she tries.
Lara becomes a more amazing character as the series progresses. She's strong, not whiny, and goes after the future that she wants. At first I wasn't quite sure how I felt about the romance between her and Donovan, but it's grown on me. This whole reality with her mother and her step-father and siblings have grown on me. 
Donovan is sweet, and strong in his own way, as he doesn't completely flip out and call her crazy for saying she's a time traveller. He puts up with a lot, and its only his love for her that allows him to continue to believe in her up until the very end.
Do you have to read this book? Yes, but you have to read this whole series!

About the Author:

jillcooperI could write this in the third person. I could tell you what I like, where I was born, and what my favorite things are.

But instead, I'll say I don't want to write like everyone else. I don't want to craft stories you've read a thousand times before. I want my novels to be a cinematic experience, blending themes, genres, and situations unlike any you've ever read.

I want to break the rules. I want you to break out in a cold sweat as you read my books out of fear, love, and excitement. I want my books to be an experience. When you finish, I want you to feel something. Good or bad.

If you do, then I'll have succeeded. If not, I'll keep trying. Website | Twitter | Facebook | Newsletter | Literary Addicts | Goodreads | Tsu
