When Sasha meets Elliot a month before her wedding to Pete, the news he brings seems incredible. He claims to have arrived from the future, explaining that their timeline was knocked off course in 2010, preventing them from meeting, and begs her to find him in the present day.
But Sasha’s wedding plans are underway and though she’s curious, Elliot turns out to be feckless, rebellious, and engaged to a glamorous and pregnant Belle. He’s not remotely her type and is instantly suspicious of Sasha’s motives for tracking him down, convinced his disapproving father has sent her to spy on him.
Sasha decides to go ahead with her wedding, but a previous connection with Elliot’s father finds her doing the catering at a dinner party at his house. With the help of her best friend, Rosie, she soon discovers that Elliot has sadness in his past, and that Belle is up to no good....

I ended up really liking this book. it was a little slow to start but ended up being very imaginative and pure fun.
I was disappointed by this book; I enjoy sci fi themes so the time travel storyline interested me. The story felt badly paced however, and there were elements which were never explained (not least of all how time travel was possible, which was glossed over). Some of the scenes were predictable and cringeworthy and I felt very little sympathy for any of the characters. I appreciate that this may sound an odd thing to say on a book about time travel but the story and the characters' motivations weren't believable.
More detail and explanation about how and why Elliott came to time travel would have improved the book- unless I missed it, there was never a really clear explanation of how he knew they should be together. It would also have been better if Pete had been less of a sympathetic character as I found myself siding with him and finding Sasha annoying.
