I highly recommend that you read my first novel, Nine Minutes, to be able to understand the background stories of the main characters. There are many twists and turns in both stories that can best be connected if read consecutively.

Although I do answer all of the outstanding questions from Nine Minutes, there is more to this story, and some readers may consider it a cliffhanger. If you do not like cliffhangers, you may want to wait until the third novel is released in 2016...."(less)

When I read Nine Minutes at the end of last year I remember being completely blown away. I was really excited to read the sequel but also extremely nervous. I was nervous that the book wouldn’t live up to my expectations. The first book was so great, they were very high. But it did. 100% lived up to all my expectations. Maybe even exceeded them.

Reading Out of Time was an experience. I cried, I felt, my heart raced and I chewed off every one of my nails. This book jacked me up. It blew

Is anyone else hoping that book two brings a twist with a different ending for Grizz???

So now that I have read the book I can say I am pleased so far. Book 3 will for sure be the deciding factor but it looks as though things are lining up and a lot has been explained so far. I did feel a little lost from time to time in this book trying to remember who people were. This tends to happen for me when so much time lapses between books and my major reason for losing interest in books that start out


Honestly, this is one of those books that seems almost impossible to review without spoiling, so I will keep it vague. Days after the execution, Ginny thought the past would finally be behind her and her family, but instead they are forced to face truths they never expected.


Out of Time gives the reader glimpses into the past, including events prior to the timeline from Nine Minutes. Questions are answered, secrets revealed, and an ending that will leave you desperate for the next book. I was on

”So many secrets, so many lies. If she’d had her head in the sand, it certainly wasn’t her fault.”


I was super excited to get my hands on this sequel and the length of the story had me even more amped up to have hours of time with Grizz, Ginny and Grunt and finally get some long overdue answers.


Sadly, this sequel was so loaded down with USELESS INFORMATION (I mean there’s a whole little chapter about an old man and jerk hair salon guy which was completely irrelevant and that’s just one

This is definitely a minority opinion. A lot of my friends loved this book. LOVED. Unfortunately for me, it was a big bust. There's a thin line between edgy and tumbling over a cliff of implausibility, in my opinion. Out of Time was the latter. It just went from edgy to the over the top real fast.

Nine Minutes was one of my top books last year. It didn't get a full 5 stars but I still loved it for what it is: an intriguing account of an abduction that changed the lives of those who wer

When I read Nine Minutes last year I was completely blown away. I was in awe of Beth Flynn’s simplistic yet gripping writing style and the original plot that had me turning the pages so fast I finished the book in just two hours. Because of how much I adored Nine Minutes, I was so scared to start Out of Time, fearing it would tarnish the masterpiece that is Nine Minutes, and when I got an advanced copy, I even pushed the book back several times (I’m stubborn like that).

“The dark king is gone. Can’t play without the king. Right?”

The prologue in Out of Time is what truly stands out for us. We were grabbed by the scruff of our necks as it demanded our attention and our hearts. We were so engrossed and thought wow what a start to what is surely going to be a fantastic sequel on par with its predecessor.

“Don’t act like I saved you.”
“But you did.”

What we enjoyed and kept us from putting this story down was the mystery of Grizz and how it all came to

Alright, I had to sit and let this story marinate in my brain..(scary thought-I know!!!) and in all seriousness I had to do something I never have done before. I changed my rating, the more I really sat down and thought about the story as a whole. I still maintain that Beth Flynn is a genius in my eyes. She has my utmost respect as an author. Not a lot of writers could pull off what she has done with this series so far. My dilemma comes from the amount of information that was thrown at us reader

Beth Flynn you are my hero! You delivered the perfect sequel to one of my favorite books of all time. As a reader, you know how scary it is to read the sequel to your favorite book. It’s also one of the most exciting moments, knowing you get to see your favorite characters again.

Out of Time picks up exactly where Nine Minutes ended. From the first paragraph until the very end I was on the edge of my seat. There are so many questions I need

Rating : 3.5 ‘DRAMA AND MORE DRAMA’ Stars


My Views : This book was one heavy read for me. It contained so many information that it was difficult to assimilate, and this is why it took me 5 longs days to finish the whole book. However, there were so many revelations which are going to leave you gobsmacked. However there were some which I found far-fetched; I mean if it were any other book I would have believed it but this one really changed from the premises

Update. After much reflection I am lowering to a 2. The bad did not outweigh the good in this one, even though I really wanted it to.

Where do I begin? Nine Minutes was one of my favorite books from last year. It left me so conflicted but so happy as a reader that I got something different from the usual romance story. Grizz was one of those characters you don't see a lot, where he's a bad man but wonderful to his woman. And for me, as long as he's not a dick I am good with that.

Initially I didn’t want to review this book. First, because it’s almost impossible to write a review without spoiling everything 'important' and secondly, because I have mixed feelings about it. I enjoyed “Nine minutes”, the first book in the series, I truly did. It was great read, almost exceptional, refreshing even, but this second book left me so conflicted that honestly I didn’t even wanted to rate it. Anyway...while the first book was almost entirely plausible, this second book w

After all the crazy twists and What-the-hell-did-I-just-read questions from Nine Minutes, well, the expectations were HIGH. It would be unrealistic to expect BF to deliver an equally as impressive book. And she didn't...unfortunately.

POV: Third Person

Tommy/Grunt and Ginny made their peace on the day of Grizz’s execution. They were trying to move on with the lives, finally away from their past. However, their future was in jeopardy when new revelations were unearthed. Secrets and lies from the past accumulated threatening to blow over everything they ever believed in.

I don't....I just don't...I don't know. This book wasn't what I was expecting. Some parts I did like and enjoy. Especially when I started because it was great seeing all the characters again. Nine Minutes was such an incredibly raw story that was quite the page turner. But in this one, at some point in the middle, I just got so freaking bored. All this information was thrown at me like crazy--I'm talking like ALOT--and I guess it was hard for me to follow. It didn't help that

Well,it's no secret that Nine Minutes is one of my favourite books so I definitely went into this one with excitement and some trepidation to be honest.
The story picks up right where NM ended.Now,I obviously knew it was going to be told in the past/present but what I hadn't anticipated was the way it jumped around.I'm not joking at times my head literally hurt reading t

My brain is all jumbled. After reading Nine Minutes I was crazy excited and couldn't think straight, because it was so good. After reading Out of Time I was just excited that I made it through all the crazy to get to the end...and now I can't think straight because it was just TOO MUCH!!

Don't get me wrong, there was some good, most especially when the author reflected on Grizz's disturbing journey
Kim Bailey
I didn't think it was possible, but Beth Flynn managed to make me actually like Grizz! I really didn't like his character at all in the first book - and that was ok, since I enjoy having an obvious evil nemesis to pit all my hostility toward. But, oh no! Now I actually have empathy for him! In fact, the prologue to this story had me teary eyed. And knowing why he did some of the things that he did ... knowing how much he truly loved Kit ... all adds up to my inevitable like & (maybe) even re ...more
Good, But Grunt's No Grizz!

In this highly anticipated follow-up to 'Nine Minutes', the focus shifts from Kit and Grizz's love story, to Kit and Grunt's love story. I like Grunt/Tommy, and even felt sorry for him since he was so obviously in love with Kit from the start, but I'll never warm-up to the idea of Kit with anyone other than Grizz. My mind just can't wrap itself around polyamory, especially on par with the type of deep, passionate love that Kit and Grizz had. Nope, it just isn't going t

It took days for me to review this. I wanted to sit and think about what to say...did I like this? Was it captivating? Was it what I was expecting? Was it more? Hard questions to answer because with each passing day I found myself losing bit of the story...and believe me when I say there are a lot of bits!

I'm going to keep it as simple as possible and say that Nine Minutes was a read that pulled me and held me hostage. While there was no explicit sex or grossly detailed violence it was still tab

(Big and Fun BR with Jen, Sharon, Tiffany, Melissa, Patty and Kelli)

Never in my wildest dreams did I think I'd be rating this book three stars, having loved Nine Minutes and Grizz so much, I was sure this was going to be another big hit but not such luck.

This second book was very confusing to say the least, the plot felt very cluttered and the inconsistencies with the switches from past to present, different years and characters POV's, just added to the constant confusion.

Sarah Robinson
When Beth Flynn tells you that every question from Nine Minutes will be answered in Out of Time, she freaking meant it! In fact, as you're reading, you remember even more questions than you'd originally had written down and ready to check off. But never fear, each and every one will be answered!

So much of the book hops back and forth through time, so you get to see EVERYTHING from start to finish.... well not finish, but definitely some sort of conclusion. Until she hits you with another cliffh
