Garrett Daniels has this whole life thing figured out. The cocky, charismatic former high school star quarterback is an idolized football coach and "cool" teacher in the hometown where he's not just a golden boy - he's platinum. He has good friends, a great house on the lake, and the best damn sidekick a man could ask for: Snoopy, the albino beagle. Then...Callie Carpenter comes home.

The first time I met Chase Parker, I didn't exactly make a good impression. I was hiding in the bathroom hallway of a restaurant, leaving a message for my best friend to save me from my awful date. He overheard and told me I was a bitch, then proceeded to offer me some dating advice. So I told him to mind his own damn business and went back to my miserable date. I couldn't help but sneak hidden glances at the condescending jerk on the other side of the room. Of course, he caught me on more than one occasion, and winked.

I fell in love with Liam only to be left shattered into a million pieces. Again. The idea of being without him cripples me but the reality is, he's gone. He doesn't understand, and I can't make him. If only he'd see the conviction behind my words - then Liam would still be here.

Ok I liked this one more than the first 2 books. That is one major cliffy (even though it was expected). What I didn't expect was what the husband did. I have to read book 2 now.

A mysterious heir with a rap sheet, combat boots, and a mouth that I want to pin shut with my - it doesn’t matter. I've played this game for a decade. I can continue the charade a little longer, keep my hands to myself and her body out of my mind.

So I thought for sure this was going to be a solid 4 star read, but that last chapter totally made me bump it up to a 5. I liked this time travel romance, because it was different beyond what I have read before. Amy Harmon has a way with words that are so beautiful especially with the poems in this story. I can't wait to read more of her work. I listened to the audio and Saskia and Will did an amazing job.
