Starts out amiable, gets melodramatic, ends satisfying. I really appreciated that the Time Travel structure was explained coherently & (as much as possible) plausibly. Just a fun, funny, adventurous read that I found hard to put down. I'd love to try something else by the author, too. Recommended.

When I read the summary of this book, I was a little worried that it would be a romance which is certainly not my cup of tea. However, it was far from it. While there is a love story involved, this is much more of an action/comedy with a side of time travel.

Being a former internet dater myself, I immediately identified with the main character who starts off in Chapter One with experiencing some of the pitfalls of online relationships. While the author incorporated several cultural references thr

I came across this book through the authors' self promotion in our time travel group read. I am always willing to try out new authors books if the synopsis sounds good and if the Kindle sample gets me hooked. Well the synopsis alone grabbed me and the sample hooked me in like a blackhole for this was a highly entertaining time travel romantic black comedy thriller. The author has an almost Terry Pratchett style of humour in his narrative but fully grounded in our world, rather than a giant turtl ...more

I started out really liking this book. The characters had this great, witty, banter thing going on, and it was really cute. Then the turmoil & churn part of the story kicked in and I just wasn't feeling it as much. But, the ending had me on the edge of my seat, so to speak, and that's always good :)

"Love at first sight is so much easier when time moves in the right direction"
Rebecca has just met Mark, and thinks he might be her ideal man. He's funny. He's smart. He has a time wormhole in his telephone that gives them access to unimaginable wealth. These all qualify as 'PROS'.
But there's also the possibility that he may be destined to murder her. Which, by any standard, is one for the 'CONS' column."

A truly engaging and involving tale- A.K. Adler has taken the tradional romance tale and wit

The author was kind enough to furnish me with a coupon for this book. I have to say I put off reading it because the blurb sounded a little too science fiction-y for my taste. I'm not a big fan of the genre. That being said, I started the book and was immediately caught up in the story - it was nothing like what I expected! The story is well written, impossible to put down and had a great/weird ending. I definitely recommend it!

I really loved this. In fact I was surprised how much I enjoyed it as I'm not usually a big sci-fi reader. I loved the concept - it's simple yet so very clever - and the mix of science and personal interactions made it very readable. I also found it to be a real page-turner and every night I looked forward to picking it up - a sure sign of a great book for me. I would definitely read more of A.K.Adker's stuff.

To see my full review:

I am so sorry to say that this novel isn’t for me. Personally, I had too many issues with the novel to enjoy it in the least, though I do think the premise is there for a truly great read. Going in, I was excited as I liked the synopsis and the idea that Mark’s phone created a sort of time-travel experience, but upon reading, I found that I didn’t care for either of the main leads. While the beginning started off okay, I soon found that the interactions between the characte

This is an interesting study about human interaction … at least the way I saw it. I’m not sure that was the intention of the author. I spent a lot of my time while reading this trying to figure out where it was all heading. Once I realized that it wasn’t just a story but a study I was able to better understand what I was reading.

I had trouble following this story and found myself having to go back to catch pieces I missed. That was when I thought it was just a story, however. There is much writt

This is a fun popcorn romp and a good way to start my summer. Mark a single guy a bit on the shallow side, ok a lot on the shallow side. I felt as if this entire book would be more fun acted out on stage. It involved a small amount of core characters and some very funny and fast paced dialogue. The mayhem that ensues seems suited for a comedy farce... Highly entertaining and as a reader I did not agree with a lot of the decisions the characters made but it was very fun to see the results of thei ...more

I am not a fan of time travel so while this was not a bad book at all, it just isn't my genre.

I didn't really like the characters but I didn't dislike them either . But I did like the story and the twists and turns that it took.

Some weak spots but overall a quick and refreshing book. Don't expect the characters to be too deep or even genuine. It's pure entertainment.

Very well written with lots of humor. A huge massive twist at the end followed by another twist! Loved it! And didn't see it coming!
