Review: Time Between Us (Time Between Us #1) by Tamara Ireland Stone

Title: Time Between Us (Time Between Us #1)
Author: Tamara Ireland Stone
Genre: SciFi Romance 
Publisher: Hyperion

Summary: Anna and Bennett were never supposed to meet: she lives in 1995 Chicago and he lives in 2012 San Francisco. But Bennett has the unique ability to travel through time and space, which brings him into Anna’s life, and with him a new world of adventure and possibility.
As their relationship deepens, the two face the reality that time may knock Bennett back to where he belongs, even as a devastating crisis throws everything they believe into question. Against a ticking clock, Anna and Bennett are forced to ask themselves how far they can push the bounds of fate, what consequences they can bear in order to stay together, and whether their love can stand the test of time.

When I first saw this book, the summary grabbed my attention right away. Time travel intrigues and confuses me at the same time and I've been loving all these contemporary novels that have a SciFi spin on them!

Like it says in the summary, Bennett Cooper can travel back in time. He doesn't know why or how but knows he can only travel back as far as he's been alive. While in Chicago 1995, he meets Anna Greene. As their relationship progresses, and they travel to places Anna never thought she'd be able to visit, they begin to realize just how dangerous their relationship could be. They need to decide if it's worth staying together, even though Bennett could be knocked back to 2012, possibly forever.

I liked this book a lot. The plot had me drawn in from the beginning. Like imagine being able to travel back in time and visit any country you could imagine? Bennett and his sister would travel back in time to go see concerts (and thats exactly what I'd do to be honest). On the other hand, I was anxious throughout the entire story. You hear in other movies and stories how changing even one little thing can cause the butterfly effect, so it freaked me out the way they would go back to do over something (like, you can change the world! Stop!). One other thing, in 1995 Bennett is technically a new born baby and Anna is 16, so that kind of freaked me out a little bit, but at the same time I thought they were so cute together. Especially when he would take her to tropical islands and cute cafes in Italy.

Overall, I enjoyed this book. The cute little love story and the ending is what everyone looks for in a book. So if you love contemporary's with a SciFi twist or anything involving time travel, this is a book for you. Give it a read and be sure to leave your opinions below!
