It was a freebie on Amazon and I wasn't expecting much from a freebie. I must also tell you that I am not a fan of historicals for the most part. However this story was a delight, from the vivid details in the scenes to the oh-so-yummy hero, Daniel. The heroine, Amiee was enjoyable as well with the only thing that bothered me about her was that she supposedly had all this knowledge on backpacking through the wilderness yet she early on stumbled upon a bear. The love scenes were not overly descriptive, so if this is a issue for you than I would rate this one maybe a 2 1/2 or 3 on a 5 point scale of hotness factor. Of course that scale is based on my opinion, you may find it higher or lower depending on your tastes. The attraction between the main characters was believable and rich. So many times have I read a book were the atrraction was forced.
Overall I would recommed this book to anyone who likes time travel romances or if you are like me, on a budget and just looking for something to read.

However while I am loving the series, I don't like how short these stories are. Yes I know these are novellas so don't throw rocks or shoot me with laser beams. What can I say I start to become entranced in the story and bam, it stops...perhaps maybe that's the point. Anyways other than my nit pickiness with the length I liked the story. Adam was fantastic, not a super fan of heroine...but that could be a jealousy issue. I can't wait for number three!(less)

Since there are few pros than cons, I'll start with the positives.
Pros: The writing was sound and it was free. I've encountered many freebies that are just awful in this area.
Cons: I didn't like the characters...like at all. Chloe was beyond annoying and there were times I was seriously cheering for her to fail. In the beginning she describes Jason has a fake Ken doll with really dry skin but after watching his movies, the naive little girl has an epiphany that she's in love with him. Sounds like true love. Jason was not as bad but he left a lot to be desired. Matthew was a judgemental holy roller, Lori was shallow and Kyra needed to be slapped.
All in all the story wasn't bad but it wasn't my cup of tea either. The story felt like a chick lit/young adult crossbred without all the teenage agnst or drama. Will I read the book again?...No. Would I recommend this book to people?...Maybe. It would depend what your looking for. If your wanting chick lit fluff, with little or no offensive material, no steamy scenes but the here is a big shot superstar then I would say yes. But if you are looking for something other than marshmellows and cotton candy then my answer would be no. Like I said it's not a bad book, it just wasn't what I wanted it to be.
