Clare and Henry have known each other since Clare was six and Henry was 36. They were married when Clare was 23 and Henry was 31. Impossible but true, because Henry is one of the first people diagnosed with Chrono-Displacement Disorder: periodically his genetic clock resets and he finds himself misplaced in time, pulled to moments of emotional gravity from his life, past and future. His disappearances are spontaneous, his experiences unpredictable, alternately harrowing and amusing.

The book has such a cool concept. But the writing is so dramatic and overly descriptive. It reminds of a teenage girl writing in her diary. There are so many short dramatic sentences that are painfully apparent by the overly dramatic performance.

It's Dan Calebow's worst nightmare: Phoebe Somerville, a trendy New York knockout, inherits the Chicago Stars, the football team he coaches. And she wants to help him run it. Phoebe's sure he needs her. He's a sexist good-ol'-boy jock with a one-track mind. Surely she can straighten him out.

I normally like Phillip's books. They are fun light reads with a lot of wit and humor. This one had SO MANY sex scenes and they got more hokey as they went. The dialogue was over the top with way too many descriptive words. I wouldn't even be considered a feminist and I was offended by the powerful woman using sex to get her way. And don't even get me started about the rape victim that as soon as she finds the right guy, no longer has any issues.
