I am so excited to be a part of this tour today because this is something that any lover of time travel really needs to pick up and read. I really truly loved this story, in fact, if truth be told I loved it way more than I was expecting and I was already expecting something good, Candace at CBB Book Promotions always promotes great reads and I have come to trust her completely.
This one didn't let me down either.
Make sure and check out all the tour stops because there are going to be some great interviews and guest posts as well as the awesome giveaway.

I love a good time travel romance, throw in some really great detailed world building that is completely believable and so vivid you feel like you are there, and you have one heck of a fun read.
I know what you are thinking, you get all of that based on the synopsis? But don’t' let that synopsis fool you, this really was a great read, so much so that I ended up reading it all in one sitting. There is just something about the writing that sucks you in and makes you really see the future. Makes it so believable that you don't even question whether or not time travel is possible and it does it all without weighing you down with too much jargon you don't care about or understand. We get bits here and there as needed to help paint the picture. A paint by numbers if you will in storybook format.
Bianca and Tristan were a fun pair to see together. They couldn't be more different, one a rich golden boy and ex band boy, the other working for her family business and darker in personality (think emo or grunge in our day, in future she is labeled a bettie). It was fun seeing them work together and really start to rub off on each other. They were a really good ying and yang combo.
What was more surprising about this read more than anything else, was the fact that music plays a really big role in it. Not just their modern day music but our “classic rock” (think Woodstock here) as well. It was a fun little twist to the story that I wasn't expecting and was a nice touch. It was something that all of us can relate to because we either all love the music ourselves or have at least heard about it and recognize it from parents or grandparents.
All in all this was a great read that was well thought out, well executed and one that I would happily pick up the sequel to.
