So, this book follows Liz (Amber’s sister from Love Beyond Time) and Connor. This could probably be a stand-alone, but I would recommend reading book one first. I liked that we were able to see a bit of Amber and Tyler and what they have been up too since their story was told. Liz and Connor have known each other for years but have only been “just friends”, although deep down they both have feelings for one another. They are thrown together when Connor’s condo keeps getting broken into and Liz, ...more

I REALLY liked this book—it was WAY different from the first book in the series, which was a sort of time-travel-american-historical-religious-romance... This one was a modern (well, 2000, anyway) mystery-suspense-religious-romance. ;)

So this book is about Liz Saxton and Connor O'Brian. Liz is Amber's sister (main chick from book 1) and Connor is the great-great-grandson (ish) of Ian O'Brian, the Mormon guy Amber and Tyler met in Civil War times in book 1.

So, this book... Starts off with Connor
I liked this book better than the first book of the series. It was fun and I liked the cute romance. Some of it seemed a little unbelievable for me (like that they could travel the world and find clues that the police and FBI couldn't find or look into), but hey, it's fiction, right? This is a quick, cute read, perfect for a rainy day.
I don't want to be an online bully, but this book sucked. I read it because Sydney brought it home from her school library and it said it was a romance novel, so I read it first to make sure it was age appropriate. For one, I'm not letting her read it. It is written by an LDS author so nothing was bad, really, but it's grown-up relationships (at one point the guy has to take a cold shower) that she doesn't need to worry about. Two, it's so cliche I wanted to claw my eyes out. They widened their ...more
This is the second in a series. I read the first one quite a few years ago, and the third one a couple of years ago, and didn't realize they were connected.

This book was okay, but I got very tired of the "I love her, but I'm afraid to tell her," and "I love him, but I'm afraid to tell him." I also got tired of the descriptions of how gorgeous the main characters were and how rich. I guess you can't fall in love with someone unless they're drop-dead gorgeous. And I felt there were some details ab
I'm afraid I've been buying too many books lately. That is bad for my pocket book but good for my reading list. This is the second book in this series, and though you don't really have to read the first one to understand what happens, it will help.

This book is a change of direction from the last one. This is more of a mystery/thriller book then the last one was, though there is still some nice romance. I had a lot of fun trying to guess what exactly was happening and watching the characters come

I would have rated this higher except there were some things that didn't need to be in the book (she didn't need to review the story of Amber and Tyler when they went back in time as it has absolutely nothing to do with the present story) and some of it was unrealistic (like two people would run around going after a guy who is importing drugs without alerting any authorities, as well as not telling the FBI that someone was impersonating one of their agents). So besides that, it was a good story. ...more
Not my favorite book for sure. The plot was weak and unbelievable. I also couldn't stand the "I love her, but I'm too scared to tell her--I love him but I just can't tell him" stuff. Good grief. It took until page 175 for them to finally spit it out. I gave it two stars instead of one because I actually liked the characters and I was intrigued enough to finish the book. Glad I only paid a dollar for it at the DI.
Fairly decent take on the theme: guy and girl chased by bad guys, and happen to fall in love in the process. (Why were they being chased again? I can't actually remember.) I would have liked this one better with more plot, and less character-driven angst over how much they liked each other but didn't want to ruin the friendship.

A great sequel to Love Beyond Time. I liked this one a lot! Of course, I love intrigue and suspense mixed with romance, and it's even more fun when it adds world travel. It is also a stand-alone story, so you don't have to have read the first one to get what's going on here, as it's a different set of characters (though related).
It follows the predictable formula, and uses the word "clenched" much more often than I like; clenched jaws, stomachs, etc. It spends too much time with the main character/love interests wondering "does (s)he like me, I really like her (him), but (s)he probably only thinks we are friends." Still, it was quite readable.
I wish I had read this series in sequential order instead of book 4, then book 3, then book 1 and finally book 2. It was with book 3 that I realized I was reading what must be a series and tried to rectify it by going back to book 1, then book 2. Anyway, I liked this book and its linear plot line. Rating 3.5.

I read this book about a year ago and loved it. But I never remembered the title. Then, a few days ago, I was looking for something to read at the library and I bumped into this book again. I was thrilled. This is one of my favorite romance novels.
This book was full of adventure, suspense, and guys who just don't get it! the guy in it just doens't get it! Ohhhhhh I wanted to hit him! but then when he finally figures things out, he is the best!!!!!!!!!!!!
I thought this book was marginal. It had some holes in the suspense portion and the love story developed way too quickly to be believeable. Ms. Allen has some potential though - maybe her later novels get better.
Mystery, intrigue, romance...this one was so much fun to read! I also liked that the author updated us on what happened to the characters in the first book. I could easily read this one again.
Fun adventure/suspense story mixed with romance. Great characters jetting around the globe in disguise to solve a mystery. Handsome, kind hero,, adventurous heroine,...what's not to like?
This was a quick and easy read. The characters are likable and of course you want to wring a few peoples necks but that's normal when there's a love story and both sides don't know about it.
I enjoyed the plot best in this book from the three I read by this author. I accidentally read them out of order though - this one should have been second. A fun, clean, easy read.

I thoroughly enjoyed No Time for Love. I couldn't put it down! I'm looking forward to the next book . . . which I'm assuming will be about Bump and Connor's sister, the archeologist. :)
Conner and Liz are strong and likable characters, but a little too good looking. I also thought the angst caused by not talking to each other was unrealistic. The story is exciting.
Katie Watkins
A clean read filled with mystery and romance. The romance part was a bit frustrating, since it took over half the book for it to happen; but it was a fun book, all the same.
Yay for N.C. Allen!! Another amazing read from this fantastic author!
I love how the story is about Amber's sister and Ian's something-great-grandson. :) Very cute.
I know I read all the books in the series but I can't remember anything about this book. I must have liked it though because I know I went on to read the third book.
Also interesting, with a similar feel as the Abramson books. I think I prefer this book to the first in the series, since this one didn't feel as descriptive.
Second read Feb. 2013
Not sure why I have been in the mood to reread books lately, but this was a great choice. Loved it the second time through too. :)
This series is one of my favorites, but I enjoy LDS romance fictions over random romance fiction books. Each book in the series is quick and easy to read.
I was a little disappointed in this book. I knew somewhat how the story was going to end. However, it was a cute romance and a fun read.
I though this book was absolutly brilliant! it was so cute. this is a book i recoment to everyone. EVERONE!
