'A Gift of Time', the conclusion of Grizz, Ginny and Grunt’s story was pure and simple epic. It was unique, captivating and honest to God I was on an emotional roller-coaster the entire time reading it. This third installment kept me at the edge of my seat, made me feel and blew me away with so many twists and turns enough to make my head spin.

A Gift of Time is the third and final book in the Nine Minutes trilogy. It’s the conclusion to Grizz, Ginny and Grunt’s story and I feel like I’ve been waiting for the longest time to read it. It was well worth the wait. Once again, Beth Flynn took me on a reading experience. Another story that made me laugh, cry, made me a nervous wreck and gave me all the feels.

I don’t want to spoil this story for anyone so my review will be very short and to the point. I’m also not going to talk
From the first book to the last, this series has blown me away! This is one of those series that I'm sad to see end, even though I'm very satisfied with how things worked out. It was one hell of a ride, but I wouldn't have wanted it any other way. I loved it!

Picking up where the last book left off, we know that Grizz is alive but we don't know what that means for Ginny and Tommy. If you thought you'd get the answer quickly, you'd be disappointed. Ms. Flynn takes us back in time again, explaining

Hello Mrs. Flynn!

Please for all that is worthy, do not make Grizz fall in love with Ginny's twin! The story would be totally ruined and it would show that Grizz's love for Kit was not "true"! :(

Yeah, I'm done. I stopped reading it at 45% mark and I'm putting it on hold.

After an exhausting day at work I feel like I have to work again. And that's not my definition of enjoyment.

Too many plots, subplots, characters, events, twists, turns, POVs, narratives, points in time, pages... I feel like my head is going to explode.

The book is extremely well-written, the characters are well-developed but the story is too complex and confusing. Sorry.

”Two rings. One of ink and one of gold.”


I was concerned that since book two of this series had everything but the kitchen sick thrown into it that perhaps Nine Minutes should have been a standalone novel. However, I’m so glad that I tried this final book because the map, the twin thing, and all the other nonsensical things were kept in the backdrop of this well written conclusion.

I'm so sad that this series has come to an end. Beth Flynn delivers an epic, unique, captivating and original series. My feelings for this one was mixed. I loved the story but I was confused.
The first part was confusing at times and I feel bad saying that even though the two books were my favorite I couldn't remember everything from the previous.The second part in this book was my favorite. It was everything I wanted to have for this ending.

~Sigh~ this is it, the end ...we finally get all the answers and some outcomes that not everyone is going to like. I do think that Ms. Flynn spun things was definitely a hump that was hard to get over.

So, Tommy and Ginny...and Grizz. How could this work out? And what about that weird aspect with the information Grizz had? It was hard to fathom what direction things would go. And OMG that prologue? That was just killer.

I swear I still remember the feeling I felt reading Nine Minutes. This is a quote from my review: "I can promise you one thing I don’t think I will ever forget reading this book and how it made me feel.” This entire series has been this way, unforgettable.

This is the conclusion to Grunt, Grizz and Ginny’s story and I am not sure what I can say about the story that will not be a spoiler for this book or the series. If you have read the series you will be happy to know it answers all your questio

And two weeks later…

My ramblings:

None of the books in this series were easy to rate.
Not a single bloody one.
It was pretty much a hate and love relationship.
A bumpy road where I’ve been oscillating between

Because of that, when book #3 came out I went into it with no expectations whatsoever.
I just needed some answers and closure.
Was book 3 the trip of my dreams? Not really.

My issues:
The POV’s. I almost gave up because of them.

I'm calling it already.
Once again there was a lot going on in this book and a bounce around in the time line. Although this time by the second part of the book, the time line stayed the same for the most part.
I have to get my thoughts together on this one, as I have a ton to say, and yet I have to be careful not to reveal anything!!! All in all, it was a great conclusion to this trilogy...

If in fact, there is a third book after author promised only two, and we are left on a cliff.....this author is getting the first official LE author behaving badly award.

Well I'm not happy. I hated Grizz with a passion and was happy he got executed and she was with Tommy in the end of the first book. Advice to those of you who read first book and loved it: if you were happy how that all ended; leave it be and don't read second and third. If you were a Tommy/grunt fan , definitely don't read them

"Ive been given a gift, Ginny" he'd told me.
"A gift? You mean a second chance?"
"Yes, a second chance, but even more importantly, a gift. A gift of time."
"I don't know what you mean."
"Time is a real gift, Ginny, because it's the one thing you can never get back."

This ending was perfect. After book two, I was scared to see how this series finished, what happened, why it happened, how?! Yes, deep down I wish that Ginny was able to make her decisions on her own, but the way the book played out, it

This trilogy was one hell of a ride... and I loved every minute of it.
I cried and I laughed, but I finally got all the answers to my questions.
Beth Flynn, once again blew my mind!
I have to process this one, but let me tell you... it ended exactly as I hoped it would.
This is hands down, one of the best MC romance trilogies I ever read.
I am grinning like an idiot.

I won’t explain much about the plot as I don’t want to spoil your fun. Just know the book begins where the second book ended and is told from multiple points of view, with Kit, Grunt and Grizz being the most prominent. Beth Flynn still uses the back and forth between past and present

Boy is Beth Flynn a fantastic storyteller. This is a story of forgiveness ---this is NOT a spoiler. Every single character is the product of their environment and only they can decide if the cycle will continue. We live the life we've chosen by the decisions we've made and some decisions haunt you by spewing insecurities into your soul. Living an honest life regardless of your past is the only way to a fulfilling one. Life moves on, time goes on, but only you have the power of forgiveness of you ...more

Nine minutes will remain to be one of my all time favorite books! This series.... I love these characters, returning back to this story was heartwarming, emotional and at times heartwrenching. It felt like reading about people that were close to my heart, people that I love.
I do think that this final book was a little dragged out, but it didn't spoil my enjoyment of the book. I can see how if reading the trilogy back to back might be too slow though. There were many details, some served a great

Ah! O famoso final. O último capítulo de uma trilogia. É o livro que dá mais medo, ne? Medo da autora se perder ou correr porque não sabe terminar. E até medo de que estrague o amor que você tem pelos livros anteriores. Entretanto, o que Beth Flynn apresenta com A GIFT OF TIME é um encerramento com chave de ouro para uma trilogia fantástica.

“Two rings. One of ink and one of gold.”

A Gift of Time was definitely a book of two halves for me. The first half was a mass of crazy time jumps where I had to be on my toes, it was confusing and I found myself having to go back and check the year several times so that I could really get to grips to what was unfolding around me.

Even though this book moved a bit slow in the beginning, I LOVED IT!!
The first part of the book was almost a recap of the first 2 books however there was more information to them that you don't get in the first 2 books.

I loved how developed every aspect of the story is and the closure you get with the characters. I however (dare I say this) feel that there could be more to this story, maybe a spin off type of book. The love story of Grizz and Kit will forever reign their children may ha e a sto

The final ride.
The end of an epic trilogy.
Where all the pieces come into place.

This book felt like a second chance story, not just for love, but for a new life. Told from multiple POVs, we learn what led up to the final scenes in book two, particularly how Grizz was able to do what he did, and we get a deeper look into each character. The reasons behind their actions. There's a lot of growth and reflection in this st
