Review: Time Between Us by Tamara Ireland Stone

Sunday, August 10, 2014
Goodreads 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.

A completely captivating bittersweet story about two young people falling in love in the worst possible scenario - being separated by time!

I loved the pacing of the book and the writing kept my interest all the way through. I was engrossed in the initial meeting of Anna and Bennett and the strangeness in the way Bennett acted around Anna (interested in her one moment and the next, cold and indifferent). I was interested in finding out all there was to know about his ability which was hinted in the book blurb and I wondered how their relationship would work. I experienced the heart tugging and miserable moments in the book along with Anna.

The explanation of how time travel worked was a bit questionable. There were quite a few holes which failed in making me suspend my disbelief. Other than that, the story had a great message: live life for yourself. The time travel aspect of the story was great medium in delivering this message.

Time Between Us works as a stand-alone but I'll definitely be continuing Anna and Bennett's story in Time after Time.
