At the tender age of seven, Jess Riley's parents were ripped out of her life by the Tear, a ripple of white light in the sky which randomly transports people from Earth to alternate realities and distant planets once a year. On the night the Tear first appeared, the Watchers, a mysterious group of men possessing supernatural powers, made their presence known to the leaders of the world, earning their complete trust to deal with the turmoil the Tear caused.

This story is amazing. The romance is a slow burn at first, and the build up is genuinely magical. I can feel Jess's emotions as if they're my own. I can't help but find myself wondering at times if I, too, am falling in love! Perhaps I am, with this story. There's never a dull moment, the plot is positively captivating. I crave to know more with each twist. By the end, I was rushing to download the next book in the series. Be sure to have it ready! You won't want to wait to start the next installment. The lack of clichés is refreshing. This is a true adult romance, with maturity, boundaries, and respect. Expect to get butterflies, yourself. The wonderful storyline is expertly crafted. Unexpected turns, you don't know what's going to happen until the last second. Always enough mystery to keep you interested, on edge, and satisfied all at the same time. A very well done book and I can't wait to finish the series.

A little slow at the beginning but once it picks up, you will be hooked. Plenty of excitement and good twists. Not much romance but I suspect there was build up for one in the future. The only complaint I have is that the narrator would pause and could be heard making some uncomfortable sounds with their mouth, and that can be a trigger for some people.
