Okay, so I have very mixed emotions about this book. I absolutely love this author and everything she has written so my faith in her writing is right up there. I got completely drawn into this really uniquely crafted story and was emotionally invested in the characters. This is why I was completely blown away with the ending of this story.

For the first 98% of this book I would give it four stars but the last 2% 1 star. I know that not everything I read will pan out the way I want to be

1 "I guess history repeats itself." Star. 😢

What can I say... I was completely vested in Kylie and Jessie. Completely in love with them and rooting hard. Then what does the author do... She completely ripped my heart out. Was there a point to this stoy? I guess so, but I don't like it. Not one bit. Had I known, I would have skipped this one.

Happy reading. 😞

Love on the Edge of Time is clearly Julie Richman's most ambitious work to date. She meticulously does her homework (as usual) and we are the beneficiaries of a love story that truly transcends time in the most spectacular of ways.

Kylie Martin is the feisty former beauty queen who is drawn almost immediately to the bad boy of rock n roll, one Jesse Winslow. Their 'accidental' first meeting becomes the catalyst to a burgeoning friendship borne out of the necessity to share their feelings after th

I’m speechless. I’m crying. I can’t believe THIS BOOK!! How do I review it? I need to blow my nose again. Holy shit.

This book is soul crushing. Heart-stopping. I think I leaked a thousand tears from all the feels. Love on the Edge of Time by Julie A. Richman is 5-star phenomenal. I can't wait for you guys to read it. Be prepared for one heck of a book hangover. Best of 2017 list. 11/13 release.

SPOILER about its ending:

I have learnt from my friend Stacie that this book doesn't have a HEA but a very frustrating ending.

So, nope for me!

I am reeling. I seriously am. I knew this was going to be a unique and complicated love story. But I had no idea though the places this book was going to take me.

In the present we meet Jesse Winslow, a rock star who has it all, but is throwing it away with substance abuse and lack of emotional relationships. He is charming, intriguing, handsome, but a tortured soul headed for self destruction. He has the illusion that he can keep things in control, but his life is spinning far out of it.

Truthfully, I don’t quite know quite how to write this review, only that I picked up this book because it felt as though there was an interesting and fairly unusual premise to it. Julie A. Richman’s writing reminded me of the early days delving into historical/paranormal romances with stories like Jude Deveraux’s Remembrance by Jude Deveraux coming to mind (damn, has it been that long?!) and the background definitely intrigued me.

The idea that 2 lives are entwined throughout history typically lends a sense of the inev

This book was intriguing from page one and I couldn’t put it down. A beautifully written story which is a brilliant work of literature, with heart felt prose; that will have you enthralled from beginning to the very last sentence of its prose.

I loved the characters, well except those I didn’t, but I felt strongly for about them all; a true sign of a good story. Kylie Martin is a woman with weight issues, a former pageant queen, she is now having psychiatric help with her problems. I really liked

Love on the Edge of Time was exceptional. A book unlike any other, it has completely blown me away. The concept was just mind boggling, I feel like I have actually read four stories interweaved in to one.

Bad boy rock star who has hit rock bottom and an ex Miss New Jersey who on paper are total opposites but my god, these two and their journey will hold a special place in my heart forever.

Julie has written something so special, I never knew where their journey was going to take me, but never at

I'm quoting reviewer MJ, she summed it up the best for me. "Love on the Edge of Time is clearly Julie Richman's most ambitious work to date. She meticulously does her homework (as usual) and we are the beneficiaries of a love story that truly transcends time in the most spectacular of ways."

I love stories where opposites attract. It's emotional, I'd say a 1 out of five boxes of tissues book alert. You'll at least get a lump in your throat.

I finished this book in the early hours of the morning and I don’t have enough words to describe how I felt. At one point did I feel like messaging the author, get down on my knees and beg her to “Please, please, please for the love of mercy, give Kylie and Jesse a break!”

This is probably one of the most difficult reviews I have to write only because there are not a lot of details I can share as I don’t want to give away any spoilers. This book is a standalon

Jesse Winslow, bad boy rocker, and Kylie Martin, former beauty queen, should never crossed paths except for a mistaken appointment time at their mutual therapist's office. Though their paths did cross, and they are drawn to one another, the thing keeping them apart may actually be their therapist herself, because she has committed a professional no-no and fallen for her client.

I loved the pull between these two quite opposite characters, and as they participate in regression therapy (

Everyone has a mental list in their head of what they like or dislike in a book. Most of the time after reading a blurb I can tell whether I will like a book or not. Sometimes I’m disappointed, but usually I’m not. I also have a mental list of authors whom I know will never disappoint me. Julie A. Richman is one of those authors.

I’ve read every book that Julie has written and loved them all, but Love on the Edge of Time blew me away. Not only did it tick all the boxes for me, it ticked boxes I d

If you enjoy reading love stories and you can only buy one book this month then buy this one.

I can’t tell much about the storyline because you need to discover it slowly page by page, word by word and just soak in everything that is Jesse and Kylie’s love.

I cannot express adequately how much love I have for this couple the tern soulmates doesn’t come close to explaining Jesse and Kylie.

So, I slept on it and I am still not sure what I want to say about this book.

It was so good, and it felt different than other books I have read, if that makes any sense.

Jesse and Kylie exist in a romance genre novel, so there are certain expectations of what will happen, and how it will happen, and how it will end. And, this book, well, it took those expectations and it shook them up a little.

Don't get me wrong, this is absolutely still a r

Julie, Julie, Julie. You never cease to amaze me with your story-telling abilities. And this book is just another example of your amazing mind and how you are so easily able to sweep readers off their feet and pull them into a story like no other.

I really have no idea how to start this review. Julie has truly outdone herself with this one. Can you two lives truly be destined to be together so much that their lives are entwined throughout history?? They are fated to find one another each time onl

I Highly, HIGHLY recommend Love on the Edge of Time and wish I could give 6 Stars!!!

Love on the Edge of Time by the outstanding author Julie A. Richman is a full-length, standalone, romance novel.
Love on the Edge of Time is a book that stays with you. And you´ll need tissues, consider you warned.
This is Jesse and Kylie´s story. Jesse Winslow is a bad boy rock star and Kylie Martin is a former pageant queen. Both have issues and baggage and fight their demons.

This is the best book I've read in a long time. It's a contemporary romance with a historical twist, definitely not like any other book out there. It's equal parts romantic and steamy with real, flawed characters you can't help but love. The writing is seamless and smooth and you'll be drawn in and hooked from the beginning. ...more

After reading this book I really felt like I had been on the long journey along with Kylie and Jesse, I don't usually enjoy stories with a historical story line however this book left me speechless and a little heartbroken. The Author has done an amazing job of transporting you to the past and back to the present making the story truly believable. 

They say opposites attract and Kylie and Jesse were definitely that, although they have a lot more in common than they first thought. They have never

Fate or Destiny.... you decide!

Let me start by saying, this book is unlike anything you will have read before. The romance revealed literally does span the expanse of time.

I am, weirdly, the type of person who rarely reads book blurb in detail. I pick out the odd words which capture my interest. For this book it was: bad boy rocker and former pageant queen and the whole opposites attract idea. Now, having finished the book, and re-read the blurb, properly, I can see that I clearly missed so muc

4 stars!!!

“Was this possibly their karmic retribution, their day in the sun?”

Julie Richman delivers one unique story that will capture your heart implicitly. This was a trope I hadn’t read before and as the words unfolded my attention was captured from the very beginning. This was a book I went into totally blind, I didn’t even read the blurb and I am glad, because the unexpected was utterly breath taking. Julie Richman never fails to deliver

"Fade to white."

I confess, I stopped reading the synopsis when I got to bad boy rocker. That's my weakness, Rockstar Romance. I'm also a fan of the author's Moore series. So, I just dived in, having no clue what I was getting into. Yes, I went back and read the synopsis when I reached the first WTF? stage of the story. After careful consideration I determined that it really was there, I just missed it... Are you confused yet? Welcome to my world! LOL 🤣.

Oh my heck!
Julie Richman has outdone herself. She put herself out there and wrote a story completely off the grid from conventional. And what she created was a beautiful and heartbreaking story of "love conquers all." The concept of this storyline spans many lifetimes. Each of these lifetimes more heartbreaking and more revealing than the one before. But in that heartbreak, Richman builds a love that knows no boundaries, that gets stronger each time and transcends time. A love that is eternal.

I can't begin to tell you the kind of emotional ride this book took me on. I had tears, I cried I sobbed. This one was a ride that basically transcended me to an alternate state of emotions.

It is obvious that the author puts a lot of work investigating facts and makes sure your emotions and mind are challenged. A must read! ...more
